The Benefits of Weight Loss with the HCG Diet

HCG Diet PortlandWeight loss has shown to have a myriad of health benefits physically, mentally and even spiritually.  I love being a physician who facilitates and guides patients through the HCG Diet process. The transformation that happens for so many of our patients is amazing to witness and the best part of all is that is lasts.  Weight loss that comes as a result of the HCG Diet program can be permanent with some simple changes with diet and lifestyle.  
I have spent the last decade of my medical practice helping patients through the the HCG Diet protocol with great success. I have also dug deep in to research on obesity and love the work of Dr. Fung who has a theory that makes sense and shows that weight gain and obesity are hormonally determined with the main contributing factors being insulin and cortisol.  

Top Five Benefits of Weight Loss via the HCG Diet

  1. A decrease in inflammation and therefore improvements in arthritis, joint and muscluoskeletal pain
  2. Improved lab values with cholesterol and triglycerides
  3. Decrease in fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin A1c
  4. Improved energy
  5. Improved sleep

In my opinion, these benefits come into play with the changes in habits and patterns that come from the program.  I find that most of my patients choose their foods more intentionally and enjoy feeding their body on a cellular level by choosing nutrient rich, whole foods. What this does overall is decrease inflammation.  Inflammation tends to be the root cause of most disease processes in the body.

As patients begin Phase 2 of the HCG Diet plan they begin to reduce inflammation immediately by taking inflammatory foods out of the diet. As inflammation begins to lowers in the body, I find my patients have improvements in so many aspects of their health and well being.

The Mental Benefits of the HCG Diet

One of my favorite aspects of the HCG Diet is the increase in confidence that happens!  I find this to be overlooked by so many.  It is amazing what happens when someone feels FABULOUS!  Everything changes and life takes on a sunnier outlook.

These are just a few of the major benefits that come from the HCG Diet program!

The list goes on and on!  I am currently really excited about the research I have been diving into on the ways in which the HCG Diet works with insulin and leptin. Exciting.  Stay tuned.
