How Long After hCG Injections Will You See Weight Loss Results?
Men and women throughout the Atlanta area may find the results they are looking for with the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) weight loss program. When injections of the hCG hormone are used as a weight-loss aid, it synergistically works alongside a very-low-calorie diet (500 – 800 calories per day) to help your body fat, but the timing for when you see results will vary by your situation. Dr. Jeff Semel and the expert team at Atlanta Medical Institute in Atlanta, GA have prepared this brief guide to understand how this works and what kind of results you can experience.
How do hCG injections work?
The hCG hormone occurs naturally in men and women. After you receive an injection of hCG, the hormone integrates with the rest of the body, targeting fat cells and shrinking them to a fraction of their original size.
You’ll self-administer 125 IU of hCG every day, or you have the option to take the hormone orally as either pellets or drops. It may take about 2 – 3 days on average for the hCG to enter your body and start functioning, so you will need to focus on loading your body with more calories. The first part of the hCG process involves consuming more calories to help your body receive the energy it needs to manage the significant caloric restrictions necessary.
Then, the hCG will start triggering the release of hormones to help you burn off fat from the loading period, eventually moving to a maintenance effort where the body will start burning even more fat. These include the problem areas, particularly the excess ones that aren’t necessary for regular functioning.
What happens after I receive the hCG injections?
Within a few weeks after the initial injection, you start to see results and find it easier to lose and keep weight off. You may feel signs of weakness in the first few days, but those issues will become less common after you become used to the restrictions necessary in your diet.
Most people on this program will notice a loss of 2 – 5 pounds per week, with some experiencing a loss of 1 – 2 pounds per day. Your weight loss results will be more noticeable about 2 – 3 weeks after you start the treatment plan. At this point, you should also notice visible results around some areas where you had excess fat, including the midsection and buttocks.
How long will my results last?
The weight loss results will last for as long as you continue with the restricted diet. You may require further injections later, although Dr. Semel can help determine the right treatment path for you if you need additional support in any form. The hCG weight loss program works well for those who are dealing with significant fat tissue in their bodies.
