hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, it is a hormone pregnant women produce in very high concentrations during pregnancy. This hormone affects your fat cell metabolism therefore making you lose weight. What makes treatment with hCG so effective is that patients lose significantly more body fat than patients who are on a diet only.. The hCG used at PascualMD is naturally manufactured in a FDA approved pharmacy. Most of Doctor Pascual’s patients will lose 1 to 2 pounds of fat daily. Maintaining a good diet of fiber and adequate water consumption is pivotal for your success. We will review all of this during your consultation in our beautiful centers located in Miami, Kendall, Aventura, Doral, and Pembroke Pines facilities.

No, hCG treated patients lost more body fat than non treated patients. It is true that both groups of patients who follow a low glycemic index diet will lose the same amount of weight but the difference is the superior body fat reduction when it comes to the hCG diet. The key is that fat is the content in the disease we call obesity. When evaluating an obesity treatment we need to address if the program decreases body fat content compared to other methods of weight loss. If a patient is given a diuretic and there weight is evaluated in 3 hours, they may lose four pounds of water weight but is this an effective weight loss program? NO when it comes to effective weight loss the key is fat loss.
At PascualMD we do not adhere to a 500 calorie a day diet. In fact, due to safety concerns inherent with severe calorie restriction our preferred method is a diet which focuses on the restriction of high glycemic carbohydrates. A low glycemic index diet avoids spikes of glucose or sugar in your blood stream. When sugar is available for fuel in your bloodstream your body will utilize the available sugar or glucose first before it uses your fat reserves. If you continually eat high glycemic index foods your body will not burn the fat reserves for fuel. Therefore, the preferred diet is a meal plan which avoids high glycemic carbohydrates. Please note: hCG is a prescription drug : its administration must be supervised by a licensed MD.
