Kelowna's Dedicated Anti-Aging Facility
Expertise and Caring in Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine.
Women produce hCG, a natural hormone, in their first stage of pregnancy. The hormone protects a fetus from starvation by turning fat into energy. In your body, hCG will help access fatty deposits around the abdomen, known as visceral fat, that the body saves for times of “starvation." Diet or exercise alone may not be able to eliminate this fat.
Visceral fat tends to accumulate as we age, and our metabolism has a hard time getting rid of it. The more visceral fat we collect around our stomachs, the more at risk we become for conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Our hCG diet program combines hCG injections with a rigid diet. Many who follow the hCG diet plan experience fast and permanent weight loss. Health Canada has not officially approved hCG for the purpose of weight loss, so hCG is not considered an MSP benefit.
The hCG Diet Program at The De Pieri Clinic
Our hCG diet program includes weekly injections of the hCG hormone. Again, this hormone targets fat stored in your body that is difficult to get rid of. When you get the hormone injection, your body derives energy from fat stores rather than from food. This is why you can couple hCG injections with a low calorie diet and experience very little hunger.
We recommend a 3- or 6-week hCG program, depending on your weight loss goals. Our patients receive vitamin injections at their weekly appointment with Dr. De Pieri.
