A Naturopathic Medical Approach to the Portland HCG Diet & Weight Loss Plan

The Natural Path offers a Naturopathic Approach to the HCG Diet.  HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin  is produced naturally in the body of a pregnant woman by her placenta. The main function of this hormone is to control the rate of metabolism via the hypothalamus gland.  HCG injections have been clinically shown to help patients lose weight via the   HCG diet.   If you are looking for a very safe and effective method to lose unwanted pounds, following a medically supervised HCG weight loss program is a wonderful plan of action. Safe, efective and drastic results are seen in many patients.  We often see patients lose as much as 30 pounds in a month while following HCG weight loss plan. Every body is different and the amount of weight lost depends upon many factors.

Portland, Oregon's HCG Diet at The Natural Path

Those living in Portland, Oregon can find a number of specialty clinics that offer the HCG diet  protocol. The Natural Path HCG weight loss clinic has physicians on staff to supervise the entire HCG weight loss plan to ensure that patients are guided through the process.  The degree of success with HCG diet varies from one person to another depending on various factors of lifestyle and genetics.   However, in most cases, HCG weight loss is accompanied with reduced cravings for food as well as plenty of strength and energy to go about the normal activities of daily living. 

Phase II nuts and bolts of the HCG Diet

Those on HCG diet need to follow a VLCD or very low calorie diet of 500 calories per day so that the deficit in energy requirements is met by the body by burning excessive fat stores. As these fat stores are burned, 1500-3500 calories per day are unleashed intot he bloodstream for the bod y to use as fuel.  For this reason, the body is not at a caloric deficit depsite only eating 500 calories/day and therefore our patients rarely complain of hunger. 


.Disclaimer HCG is a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control.
