Diet Doc HCG Weight Loss has helped thousands of patients lose weight. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not recognize human chorionic gonadotrophin (Hcg) as a weight loss drug, nor it is approved as such. As of the present date, no clinical study has been completed that scientifically provides evidence proving hCG promotes weight loss. We are forced by law to make the following disclaimer: hCG is a drug which has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that hCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets. Additionally, we do not promote, recommend or support a 500 calorie diet.
hCG side effects: The hCG side effects people will need to monitor and report to their hCG doctor are: headaches, irritability, restlessness, slight water retention, tenderness of breast tissue, swelling of the injection sight and depression. There are some rare, severe side effects as well which include the development of ovarian hyper stimulation in females. The latter condition requires immediate medical treatment and is accompanied by the following symptoms: tremendous pain in the region of the pelvis, the swelling of feet, legs and hands, abdominal pain, abdominal swelling, difficulty, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, a diminishing of urination, and weight gain. If a user of hCG products notes any side effects, it is recommended that h/she cease (stop) using the product immediately and seek medical assistance from a doctor.
As with any weight loss program, there are no guarantees for individual weight loss. Information provided herein is based on historical research, studies and results from the many thousands of former hCG weight loss clients. Individual success is dependent upon a variety of factors.
The Diet Doc Weight Loss Program™ is a medical, weight loss diet program in which each person receives a comprehensive medical review of their health history to make sure they are a good candidate for the Diet Doc™ diet. Diet Doc™ doctors are highly trained in weight loss and receive specialized training to understand how the body responds to losing weight and how to successfully help each person lose weight overall with various health issues. Patient progress is tracked in a legal, medical chart (web based electronic medical records system which is HIPAA compliant and secure). Results are figured by tracking the average daily weight loss for the patient population as a whole, consisting of 7,200 patients, which show 82% of Diet Doc™ dieters lost 28 pounds per month on average and 12% lost 32 pounds during their first month with 97% keeping the weight off long-term (longer than 6 months).
Diet Doc™ customizes an individual diet plan along with the Diet Doc™ doctors prescribing various weight loss medications and recommending certain supplements and weight loss support products. When used in combination, and fulfilling the individualized, doctor designed weight loss plan along with keeping regular scheduled appointments (weekly), weight loss averages at 28 pounds during the first 30 days. If a patient does not follow the personalized Diet Doc™ diet plan, or misses regular doctor and nurse appointments, Diet Doc™ cannot predict weight loss will occur as it's the combination of all services, products and appointments which helps people achieve rapid, safe weight loss.
People on certain medications might experience a weight loss slow down by as much as half the projected amount, or .50 pounds per day or 14 pounds per month. The Diet Doc™ doctors will qualify each person as a good candidate (or not) for the Diet Doc™ weight loss program, but as with any diet, it's recommended that each person receive clearance from their primary care physician before starting any diet.
To keep weight off long term, Diet Doc™ recommends consuming no more than the recommended daily calories for that person's body mass index (age, gender and height) along with physical activity, such as walking, yoga, or sports.
