Alan Terlinsky, M.D. – Arlington Virginia HCG Doctor
Nu-Living’s HCG Diet is an innovative, physician assisted, speedy weight and metabolism correction program. It combines a safe, modern, scientifically valid, modified protein sparing very low calorie spectrum of diets (variable VLCD) with enhanced nutrient fortification and the safe use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone (HCG) to promote maintenance of lean muscle tissue and loss of dangerous, excess body fat while maintaining vitality and significantly curtailing hunger.
Typical Amount of Weight Lost on HCG Medical Weight Loss Program
While individual weight loss results may vary depending on the calorie content of the specific VLCD prescribed and on patient adherence to the VLCD instructions, for many patients the average weight loss is 1/2 pound or more per day during the HCG injection phase of the program using a 500-600 caloric diet. This vigorous weight loss can last from 3 to 6 weeks depending on a individual circumstances, health status and target body weight goals. Ultimately, weight loss achieved with the HCG diet depends on a patient’s starting point, calories consumed, exercise performed and degree of compliance with the diet protocols.
Our patients commonly lose anywhere from 15-40 lbs. during the HCG injection phase over 6 weeks. It is not unusual for some people on 500-600 calories per day lose 10-12 lbs in the first week! This is accomplished under strict medical supervision by Dr.Terlinsky.
Great results, particularly long term, also are achieved with Nu-Living’s modified HCG diet consisting of a VLCD with high protein in the range of 800-1000 calories per day which can produce a robust 3-5 pounds or more of weight loss per week during the HCG injection phase of the program. This less arduous VLCD in the 800-1000 calorie daily range results in weekly weigh loss of 1-3 pounds and is the most popular choice of our HCG injection patients. Dr. Terlinsky will present a spectrum of VLCD diet choices for his patients to use with HCG injections during the first office visit.
The Nu-Living HCG Diet also incorporates a metabolism boosting detoxification component and an easy to follow choice of meals. Dr. Terlinsky believes one size does not fit all when it comes to the meals for the Nu-Living HCG Diet. Choices include meals from program provided, detailed recipes for “all food” plans of breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks, or hybrid program plans using a combination of some food meals with meal replacements in the form of shakes, bars and other medical foods.
There is also an exchange list program for those people who want to take basic food components and make their own meals. For the person on the go, Dr. Terlinsky has also created a nutritious VLCD based around popular TV dinner type meals. The Nu-Living HCG Diet can provide meal protocols for patients using HCG injections combined with an all meal replacement liquid modified protein sparing VLCD.
Benefits of the HCG Diet
It is amazing to note that the HCG dieters never felt tired or lacking in energy during the dieting period. This is where the unique concept of the diet comes into play. As a matter of fact the uniqueness of HCG diet is that the dieter draws energy primarily from the fat stores in his or her body. The body need not be supplied extra fat by the intake of fatty substances or fibrous eatables. Instead the fat that is already stored up in the body gets used up in the case of the HCG dieters. There is plenty of hcg diet info around the web.
The stored fat is often called stubborn fat. This is how the HCG diet is different from the other types of diet. In the case of the other types of diet the dieter has to depend on the intake of some fatty substances to supply his or her body with fat. In such a case any diet for that matter would not work well.
Also please remember that HCG injections for weight loss should only be taken after consulting a physician. Dr. Alan Terlinsky will perform several tests to determine if the HCG injection protocol is the proper weight loss solution for you. Congratulations on taking charge of your health!
