A medical HCG DIet Success Story Portland, Oregon

The HCG Diet turned my life around
The HCG Diet turned my life around

Portland, Oregon


My name is Jason McMayden and I can honestly say that the HCG Diet truly changed my life.  My journey with the HCG Diet began in February of 2010.  I had eaten a huge dinner of pizza and bread one evening and went to bed feeling really disgusted with myself.  In the morning, I woke up and saw myself in the mirror.  I looked straight into my own eyes and said to myself, "this has got to STOP! I am ready for a transformation." 


Of course, my wife had expressed concern about my weight over the past few months as it had easily increased about 20 lbs. beyond the extra 7 lbs. I had put on per year for the past 7 years.  She was also concerned about my cholesterol being 399 and my blood pressure being 150/94.  Her nagging just drove me crazy altough I knew she was right.



The Journey to and through  HCG Diet

My first thought was to add exercise into my life.  I drove to the closest 24 hour fitness and got a membership.  My membership came with 3 free perosnal training sessions that I was so happy to use as I needed to have somedirection.  I began working out 3 days per week and after a month, I took it up to four.  I would sweat with each workout and after a few weeks it became easier and a total routine.  The weight was really slow to come off.  I was losing about 1 lb. per week.  


I had coffee with a friend one morning who had lost 60 lbs.  I was amazed when I saw him as it had been a few months.  I was curious as to what he had done to take the weight off.  He  told me of these doctors in NW Portland that lead a really incredible weight loss program called the HCG Diet. The diet sounded strange to me but he talked so highly of this place, these doctors and their program I had to find out more.


After, investigating the Natural Path online as well as the HCG Diet became quite intrigued. The next day, I called and spoke with Dr. Madda and he told me all about the HCG Diet, his HCG Diet philosophy and how the HCG Diet program worked. I decided to take a week to think about it and really do a few days of cleansing as Dr. Madda had recommended. The week of cleansing was tough as I had not had the best diet over the past few years. I was sluggish for 3 days and then a I began to feel better than ever with more energy and motivation to lose this weight and get my health back.


Two weeks later, I began the HCG Diet at the Natural Path with the guidance of Dr. Robert Madda and Dr. Cara Phillipo. I needed to lose 90 lbs. and they really guided me to that goal in such a professional, supportive and caring way.  It took 2 rounds of the HCG Diet to get where I am today. I waited 2 months in between to be sure that I could maintain my new weight and during that time I lost an additional 8 lbs.


It has been a year and 8 months post HCG Diet and I would say I am a radically different (and skinnier) person.    Honestly, I never thought I would ever know the ME I am today. 

My Final HCG Diet words

I can truly say that this HCG Diet turned my life around! My cholesterol is now 207, my blood pressure is now 125/82 and I am off of all prescription medications.  I eat well, I eat organic food and shop as locally as I can.  I take time to cook. I take time to eat my meals sitting down.  I take time to keep health as a primary part of my life!
