What is the hCG Diet?

  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, Angelo Consiglio, MD, has practiced medicine for more than 30 years. Having received his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Dr. Angelo Consiglio of Marathon, Florida, is currently serving as the area representative of Southwest Florida with Golden Heart Senior Care. In addition to focusing on the daily care of senior patients, Dr. Consiglio is trained in managing rapid weight loss with the use of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). The hCG method is an extreme diet involving drastic weight loss of up to one pound a day associated with a 500 to 1,500 caloric intake coupled with injections of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin.
  3. 3. HCG DIET  Research demonstrates the loss of weight is attributed to the controlled intake of calories combined with an exercise plan and not necessarily just the presence of the hormone hCG being in the body. However, human chorionic gonadotropin is associated with how the weight is lost. Medical studies conclude hCG reduces the feeling of hunger, thereby allowing patients to consume fewer calories more comfortably. Since the hormone causes feelings of nausea during pregnancy, it is believed human chorionic gonadotropin helps weight loss by suppressing the patient’s appetite. In addition, since hCG creates an anabolic or muscle-building state, patients will see faster results in a healthier manner.
