Can I exercise while on HCG?

You are not required to exercise while on the HCG program. We recommend only very light activity. Because of the low-calorie diet you have to follow, you will not be able to exercise. You can only do some light walking, but no exercise that is too intense.

What is the age limit?

There is no age limit or minimum required, but anyone under the age of 18 will need a parent’s consent. The HCG weight loss program can be beneficial for people of all ages. We will make recommendations for each patient based on their individual situation.

Are there side effects of using HCG?

There are no harmful side effects; however, HCG may not be the best choice for everyone. We will discuss your health and weight loss goals to help you determine whether HCG is right for you. The low-calorie diet while doing HCG can lead to hunger, as well as a lack of energy and vital nutrients and minerals, so be sure to take a daily multivitamin.

Is this like an over-the-counter HCG product?

No. our HCG weight loss program is not an over-the-counter product. Those products are not nearly as safe or effective. Our professional staff will monitor you while you take our injections and follow the strict diet to ensure that you stay healthy, energetic, and satisfied with your results.
