The HCG Program
The HCG diet consists of a program that Dr. Erhard puts together during your first visit. Each diet is specific to the patients needs, age, and goals. You first appointment will consist of a medical exam to determine if you are a good candidate for the HCG weight loss program. You will discuss your past dieting attempts, your goals for the HCG diet, and your medical history.
Dr. Erhard will set up your goals, calorie intake, and go over the daily schedule of HCG that needs to be administered. She will answer any questions you have, so please make sure to bring your questions to your appointment. HCG can only be prescribed by a physician. While on the program you will meet with Dr. Erhard regularly so she can monitor your progression, ensure your safety while taking the drug, and make adjustments as necessary.
We use HCG subcutaneous injections that you will self-administer for 40 days. We will teach you how to safely inject the HCG subcutaneous drops, you will continue to self-administer the injections throughout the duration of your HCG diet. The HCG hormone typically takes 3 days to begin to take effect and “kick in”. After 40 days you will stop taking the drug because your body can develop an immunity to the drug. At the end of 40 days if you have not reached to your goal weight Dr. Erhard will have you take a 6 week break, this break allows your body to fully resensitize your body from taking the drug. At the end of the 6 weeks you will begin the next 40 day cycle. We will continue this schedule until you have been through 4 cycles, it is not recommended to complete more than four 40 day cycles of HCG for our patients safety and health.

“I couldn’t believe it. I never thought that I would be able to survive on 500 calories a day. But I’m doing great, I feel okay, and my hunger is remarkably minimal. In fact, now that I am about 4 weeks into the program and have lost 19 pounds, I am actually having a hard time eating that much food. I will definitely do another course of this diet for it really does melt the fat.”
