Fast Track Weight Loss Program
Weight lost comes directly from stored fat tissues without decreasing your bone density or muscle mass
HCG hormone signals the body to use stored fat for energy and eliminates excess fat reserves
Your appetite decreases, while your energy level increases
No exercise is required
The HCG Diet is an effective and safe weight loss program that helps you lose pounds and inches by releasing unwanted fat reserves in the abdomen, love handles, hips, and thighs. With this medically supervised program, our patients have easily lost 20 to 60 pounds. We require an office visit, review of labs, medical clearance, and purchase of the prescription HCG product.
Phase 1 - Get the Facts
At your initial appointment, you will be given all the information you need about our program. A blood panel is required on your first visit. We will also go over your medical history and diet & exercise history. We will give you our specialized low-calorie diet plan. All the details of the program and the diet will be explained to you, and you will be able to ask all the questions you need to know exactly how the program works. We will also help you make modifications within the HCG diet f you are allergic to certain foods, or you are a vegetarian. Some patients choose to take appetite suppressants while on a diet. If you decide to take appetite suppressants, we will explain how to take the medication.
Phase 2 - Weight Loss
In Phase 2, you will begin the program. We request that you come to our office weekly to weigh in, but it is not mandatory. Appointments are not needed for your weekly weigh-in – walk in whenever it is convenient. As you lose weight, you may begin to have questions. Our medically trained staff will monitor your weight loss progress and answer any questions you may have at any time during the program.
Phase 3 - Maintenance
When you have reached your goal weight and are ready to stop the diet, you will begin the maintenance part of our HCG weight loss program. This consists of meeting with the practitioner, who will go over all the details of successfully maintaining the weight you have just lost. This is the most important part of our program! Remember, you have just lost all the weight you have wanted to, and now we want to help you keep the weight off!

"Both my wife and I have had numerous occasions to consult with Sima. She is absolutely terrific!! Recently, Sima coached us through the HCG Diet Program, and we were just thrilled with the process and the results. We used the sublingual drops and found this process to be very satisfactory. And...here is the most wonderful part of it... over 21 days, I lost 20 pounds of evenly distributed weight loss, and my dear wife lost 21 pounds over a 30 day period: no starving and no side-effects. The diet requires discipline but is not particularly onerous. We ate satisfactory meals throughout our 21-30 day phase two program and then enjoyed very satisfactory and varied meals during our phase three period. And, this is the true clincher... both of us found that we were able to continue our sensible eating program and weight control without stress or difficulty. This is quite remarkable given having had poor, long-term results with Weight Watchers, Atkins, and South Beach."
"Sima has been wonderful in giving advice and information on beauty as well as health. Sima recommended the HCG program to me, which changed my life. She has also taken care of some very sensitive health issues for me and was extremely caring. I appreciate the attention to detail. I am not just another quick appointment here. Sima is on top of it with her patients. Thank you, everyone, in the office. You are truly great!"
"My visit to Sima Medical and Cosmetic Clinic was for laser treatments and HCG. I want to share my personal results because the impact on my health and well being has been nothing short of dramatic. First, let me say that working with the entire staff has been a pleasurable experience. They have all been knowledgeable, competent, friendly, and very helpful. Sima has made a point to come by and encourage me all along the way, in addition to the first-rate treatment I have received from the entire staff. As a man getting treatment in a predominantly women's arena, this has been very nice. I have not yet completed my treatments as of this writing, but in just my first two weeks of treatments, I have lost a total of 9 1/2 inches of body fat! 4 1/2 inches of that came directly from my waist. I am wearing clothes I have not taken out of my closet in years, and I feel great. But that is not even the best part. In combination with HCG, in my first two weeks, I have lost 16 pounds. Since HCG targets visceral fat, that internal fat surrounding vital organs, I have experienced the best result of all- my blood pressure has come down from a dangerous 150/100 (it has spiked as high as 170/105) to an average of 120/84!
I won't lie- the HCG program is stringent, and I am certain my results have come because I have followed the program strictly. But Sima and her staff have been so incredibly encouraging to me all along the way, and it truly has not been difficult to follow the rules as a result of their support. Benefits to me include increased flexibility, easier breathing, lower blood pressure, and general satisfaction when I look in the mirror. My girlfriend does not know I have been on this program. I can't wait to see her reaction when we are together again next month! I recommend this program in particular to men. The overall health implications are huge, and the increase in quality of life has been amazing to me. Keep up the good work, Sima Clinic!"
Frequently Asked Questions
What is HCG and how does it work?
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin - a hormone naturally produced in the body. HCG is known as the "pregnancy hormone" which allows the body to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. During pregnancy, this hormone almost completely controls the woman's metabolic functions acting as a safe mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss, we use only a small amount of HCG to simulate this same mechanism.
The hormone HCG helps the body to mobilize up to 2000 calories of unwanted fat reserves a day. HCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body only when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. That's why we combine a very low calorie diet with the HCG hormone.
How much weight will I lose on the hCG Diet?
Most of our patients report rapid weight loss averaging 1 to 2 pounds a day. At the very least, half a pound a day, and no more than 3 pounds a day. One pound is generally lost in the first day. Several factors contribute to a faster weight loss such as eating more vegetables and mixing salad with each meal. Increasing your water and fiber intake is extremely important.
Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day?
With the HCG Diet, weight lost comes directly from fat tissues and does not strip your body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health. At the same time, excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients are released into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body. This is why HCG dieters report an increase in their energy level, while feeling and looking healthier within days of starting the diet.
Will my metabolism slow down if I'm on a very low calorie diet?
Yes, normally when we cut back our calories and fat, our bodies store fat and our metabolisms slow down. This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy. When a very low calorie diet is used in conjunction with HCG, the hormone signals the body to use stored fat for energy, and eliminates excess fat reserves. It’s a natural process, so no ill effects on your metabolism will result.
Wouldn't I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low calorie diet without HCG?
You can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you'll most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. This causes cellular metabolism to slow down, so in the long run, it would make gaining weight easier, as well as decrease bone density and muscle mass. By using HCG with the low calorie diet, extra fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated. The low calorie diet is vital in preventing immediate refilling of emptied fat cells. You benefit by getting rid of excess fat without affecting your bone and muscle.
Since the HCG Diet is low calorie, will I get hungry?
Because HCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body can access the energy you have stored in fat cells. After about 2 days, many patients notice a significant decrease in their appetite. Overall, most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program.
Who discovered the HCG Diet and how long has it been around?
The use of HCG in the treatment of obesity was first discovered by the late British Physician, Dr. A. T. W. Simeons. He first published a report on the topic in 1954, while practicing in Rome, Italy. He devoted 30 years to researching patients suffering from obesity, exploring weight loss causes and treatments. During this time, he noticed several important factors including the lack of symptoms one would expect from a patient on a very low calorie diet. For example, his patients had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability as long as the low calorie diet was combined with HCG.
IS HCG approved by the FDA?
Yes - HCG has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in treating many medical conditions. It has not, however, been submitted for approval as a weight loss aid and is therefore not sanctioned by the FDA for this purpose. Its use is considered "off label" which is a common practice for numerous medications. Its proof as a weight loss aid is seen through the successful weight loss of thousands of people around the world.
Is HCG safe?
Yes - HCG is a proven safe and effective medication that should only be prescribed and used under the supervision of a licensed practitioner. HCG has no history of negative side affects.
Please do not buy HCG over the Internet which are often herbal or homeopathic formulas lacking the effectiveness of the real HCG. You cannot be assured of the safety or content of any medications bought over the Internet.
