Diet Doc’s Clinical Study Ruled that the ‘HCG Diet’ was Unsafe for Use Back in 2009

ANCHORAGE, AK–(Marketwired – December 28, 2016) – Produced specifically during pregnancy, the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (HCG) has been used to stimulate weight loss in conjunction with a calorie restrictive diet plan since the 1950s when it was first introduced by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. Supporters claim that HCG helps to target and eliminate long-stored fat reserves within the body. This dietary approach to weight loss comes with some degree of controversy given its low-calorie count (often as low as 500 calories per day) and the fact that many experts in the medical field do not support the use of human growth hormones for weight loss purposes. Low-calorie diets are known to cause general malnutrition and symptoms of discomfort such as, chronic hunger, dizziness, fatigue, low-concentration, overall weakness, mood swings, headaches and low-energy.

HCG typically comes in an injectable form, though less effective drops and tablets can be found via online retailers. Its purported weight loss effects work for both men and women, despite its natural occurrence during pregnancy and is supposed to be injected into the body on a daily basis. Experts recommend that HCG injections (which are painless) and their corresponding caloric restrictions should not be adhered to for more than six weeks (or 40 days). Though the use of HCG remains consistent among dieters, the medical weight loss researchers at Diet Doc were one of the first teams to conduct their own in-house clinical study regarding the efficacy and safety of HCG drops and injections for weight loss purposes and concluded that Dr. Simeon’s original HCG Diet was unsafe for use in 2009. In fact, the Medical Director of Diet Doc, Dr. Nishant Rao believes that HCG dieting is nothing more than a starvation diet which results in muscle and water weight loss rather than fat, “Though the weight on the scale might be moving downward, body composition isn’t improving whatsoever.”

Diet Doc helps individuals achieve fast and lasting weight loss due to balanced meal planning which provide between 800-1200 calories per day, resulting in weight loss of up to 20 pounds per month.
