Bringing The HCG Diet To NYC

Think losing 20 pounds takes months of intense exercise and starvation? Well, not anymore thanks to the new diet craze that's sweeping the nation. The HCG diet, first constructed in the 1950's by a British endocrinologist Dr. Simeons, could originally be found on every corner in Miami– and now, it's making its way to the Big Apple.


HCG, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone that pregnant women produce that is able to be extracted for medical use. The FDA has approved it to help with infertility and other hormonal problems. So what does this hormone have to do with weight loss? In his studies, Dr. Simeons observed that patients treated with HCG began to lose fat in the belly region and proved that with a specialized diet and dose of HCG, men and women could lose large amounts of weight in a relatively short amount of time.


The arrival of HCG to New York is largely attributed to the 21 Amazing Day Program. In just three weeks, an individual can lose up to 30 pounds—if they strictly follow all the specifications that the program entails. A dieter is constrained to 500-700 calories a day; however, they WILL loose one to two pounds each day. But do not be alarmed; the HCG hormone keeps the body from going into "starvation mode" while maintaining such a low caloric intake. The 21 day process is monitored by trained doctors and nurses so that the weight loss is safe and effective.

The first HCG medical clinic, offering what they call the "21 Amazing Days" program, has opened in Brooklyn. Visit their website for more information.
