How Does the Diet Work?
Dr Simeons based on his observations, used Injections of HCG, in combination with a very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). He had good success in having patients lose fat located in abnormal areas (Upper chest, Abdomen, Thighs). Dr Simeon’s hypothesized that HCG resets the hypothalamus to mobilize fat from existing abnormal fat cells, making it available for energy.
Instead of using Injections, most patients prefer to use Sublingual HCG tablets (Pharmaceutical grade) which seem to have produced good results in patients on the HCG diet. Most men and women can utilize and benefit from the HCG diet.
Even though patients are consuming only 500 calories per day, HCG seems to curb hunger, preserve muscle and allow patients to preferentially lose fat above and below the Umbilicus.
Along with appropriate implementation and adherence to the HCG protocol, we strongly recommend that our patients coordinate with their primary care physician regarding their weight loss goals.
Our Physician supervised program provides the personal attention you deserve and unlimited phone support to address any issues that the patient has to ensure maximum success. Through our Weight Loss program, patients are assisted in their restorative journey towards Ideal health & wellness.
How our Physician supervised HCG Weight loss program works:
At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we provide Physician directed weight loss utilizing HCG and appropriate nutrition. Our Weight Loss program helps our patients manage their weight and take control of their cravings & eating habits.
Prior to starting the Weight loss program, an Initial evaluation which includes a detailed History and Physical examination and thorough Blood work analysis is done to identify possible medical reasons for being overweight. The blood work panel focuses on measuring Hormone levels (Testosterone, Thyroid, Growth hormone and Fasting Insulin), markers for Diabetes, High Cholesterol, and Metabolic Syndrome.
In our experience with the HCG weight loss program, we have seen that patients with balanced hormones have greater results and have more success in maintaining weight loss.
During the Initial consultation, we do Body Composition analysis using the INBODY 770 (BIA) Machine to accurately measure your Body fat percentage. Our Physician will discuss your blood work and INBODY report in detail and provide detailed instructions about the Diet program and answer any and all questions you have. In particular, our Physician will address your issues and struggles with appetites, meal choices, and unhealthy cravings, and help to correct them. Our Physician is passionate to help you successfully achieve your weight loss goals.
As part of our Weight loss program we provide FOUR in-office visits with our Physician. We also provide unlimited Phone support during the Diet. Our primary goal is to provide the personal attention you deserve & help you achieve your Ideal body weight successfully.

These weight reduction treatments include the injection of HCG, 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 it 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-restricted diets.
