CLEAN START WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM

Tired of weight loss programs that just don’t work?

We’d like to introduce you to a weight loss program that involves no surgery, no starving, no outrageous exercise programs, and no packaged meals.
You won’t feel tired, hungry or irritable as with most diets.

This hCG training program is specifically designed for physician administration, and covers the use of prescription hCG for weight loss, the required lab tests, diet protocol, and how to safely and effectively create a long term weight loss program for your patients. The hCG Diet is a program formulated with specific amounts of nutrition and ingredients to encourage weight loss. And we’ve created an hCG training program to match.

HCG, which stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a glycoprotein composed of 244 amino acids. Only HCG injections have been shown to raise blood levels of HCG, so that is the only acceptable way of taking HCG at this time. Any other way of taking HCG, such as drops, pills, or sprays, are likely dissolved before ever reaching the blood, and they do not raise blood levels; this would be like taking nothing at all. An injection is the only proven method of taking HCG at this time. Injections should only be taken with a prescription from a doctor, and under medical supervision.

HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.

Why does that matter?

During a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost. Because muscle is heavy, this loss looks good on the scale because the pounds are dropping quickly. When you lose muscle, it’s bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that dieter regain weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost.

This protocol, however, protects muscle from being lost. In fact, there is more of a pure fat loss, which causes a shrinking in inches and size of clothing. The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.

The hCG Diet and the 3 Types of Fat

There are 3 types of fat:

reserve fat which your body draws upon for energy when you skip a meal
structural fat which is located between your organs, joints and bones
abnormal fat or adipose tissue which is the fat that your body ‘banks’ in case of starvation.

The hCG diet produces weight loss but more specifically, fat loss. And that is why the HCG Diet will reshape your client’s body. Your body needs reserve and structural fat but does not need abnormal fat to survive.

By following our HCG diet protocol (which you will learn during our hCG training program), your client’s body releases the unlocked calories and nutrients stored in their abnormal fat. As a result, their hCG diet will produce not only weight loss but fat loss.

HCG Diet vs. Traditional Diets

Most traditional diets, without the benefit of hCG, rely on calorie restrictions that can trigger your bodies ‘starvation response’ also called your ‘starvation mode.’ This response essentially causes your body to conserve your fat reserves, locking them up and holding on to them as long as possible. Your body then is forced to begin burning muscle and body tissue first, rather than the fat reserves you are trying to get rid of.

“The benefit of the hCG diet is that their body will convert stored fat for fuel and keep them out of starvation mode.”

The health benefits of Clean Start Weight Loss Program

Modest Weight Loss Lowers CVD Risk in Middle-Aged Women

Middle-aged overweight or obese women who sustained any weight loss at two years had reduced total cholesterol and non–HDL-cholesterol levels, in a new study[1]. Those who maintained a loss of at least 10% of their initial body weight also had reduced LDL cholesterol, C-reactive protein (CRP), insulin, and triglyceride levels—which often moved them from a high- to a medium- or low-risk category for potential heart disease or diabetes.

The study, which was published online December 18, 2013 in the Journal of the American Heart Association, is based on data from a trial that randomized more than 400 women to receive a free meal-replacement program with either in-person counseling or counseling over the phone—the Jenny Craig program—or to receive usual care[2], as previously reported by heartwire.

The findings show that “small amounts of weight loss can make a difference,” coauthor Dr Cynthia A Thomson (University of Arizona, Tucson) told heartwire . “You don’t have to necessarily get to the ‘ideal’ body weight—a 10% weight loss seems to have quite an impact on most of the clinical markers” associated with CVD and diabetes, she added. Clinicians need to provide appropriate long-term support to help obese and overweight patients lose weight, since it seems to pay off by modifying their risk factors for obesity-related disease.

Examining Weight Loss, Biomarkers at Two Years
Previous short-term studies have suggested that even modest weight loss may significantly improve risk factors for obesity-related disease, especially CVD or diabetes, Thomson and colleagues write. However few studies evaluated how weight loss sustained beyond 12 months affects these measures.

The researchers examined changes in cardiometabolic biomarkers at 12 months and 24 months in women in a weight-loss intervention trial at four sites: the University of California, San Diego; the University of Arizona; the University of Minnesota; and Kaiser Permanente Center Northwest. The trial enrolled 442 women with a mean age of 44, a mean body weight of 92.1 kg, and a mean body-mass index (BMI) of 33.9.
The women randomized to the intervention arms received 42% to 68% of their food in a prepackaged form and were transitioned to less prepackaged food after 12 months; they were also encouraged to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and build up to 30 minutes of exercise five or more days a week. Participants in the usual-care arm received limited counseling from a dietician and were also encouraged to exercise.

Total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, non-HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin, glucose, and CRP levels were determined in blood samples taken at baseline and at 12 and 24 months.

The current study included 417 women with complete data. Most women (85%) lost some weight at 12 months, and the rate of recidivism was lower than in some other studies, Thomson noted. At 24 months, 74% of the women had still lost weight. On average, the women weighed 8.6% less than their baseline weight at 12 months and 6.6% less than their baseline weight at 24 months.

Benefits Realized With 10% Weight Loss

There was a “strong and significant association between percent body-weight reduction and change in biomarkers, such that for every 10%-point-reduction in body weight, there was an estimated four-point reduction in insulin and glucose, a 5.4-mg/dL reduction in cholesterol, and an 18-mg/dL decrease in serum triglycerides,” Thomson and colleagues write. These women were the only ones who had improved fitness, as measured by a step test.

At 12 months, 48.4% of the women in the intervention groups and 13.9% of those randomized to usual care had lost at least 10% or more of their initial body weight. At 24 months, 28.8% and 17.5% of the women in these respective groups maintained this weight loss.
Women in all three groups lost weight, although more women who received the meal-replacement programs lost weight. “Should people be on the Jenny Craig program for life? I don’t think so,” Thomson said. “It’s one approach to ‘jumpstart’ people [to] help them develop skills . . . to make [better] food choices.”

Cardiac Surgeon and Medical Talk Show Host Dr. Oz on the diet

Cardiac Surgeon and Medical Talk Show Host, Dr. Oz, recently featured the HCG Diet on his syndicated television show. With testimonials from real life stories and insight from fellow physicians, many of the questions about the validity of the HCG Diet were addressed. The biggest concern posed by Dr. Oz was the part of the regime that limits the dieter to only 500 calories per day while taking HCG. Specialists explained that while taking in only 500 calories a day, your body “receives the remainder of energy and calories needed from the excess fat stores within your body.” The conclusion The Oz voiced was: if you do it, use the inject-able form and do it under a doctor’s supervision. Watch the Dr Oz video here.
