Weight Loss Clinic



HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadatropin, a hormone produced during pregnancy. During pregnancy, HCG almost completely controls a woman’s metabolic functions. HCG is also used to cause ovulation and to treat infertility in men and women. Most HCG dieters report an average weight loss of .5 to 2 pounds a day. HCG weight loss studies have shown that weight loss following the Simeons protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. In doing so, the weight comes directly from the fat and does not strip the body of vitamins, minerals, or muscle, yet at the same time releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body.

What to expect.

  • ​​Follow a VLCD (​very low carb diet) ranging from 500 - 1200 calories, depending on your activity level and lifestyle.
  • Daily injections, which you will do yourself or daily nasal spray.
  • Weighing yourself every morning
  • ​Keeping a detailed food journal
  • ​Consuming 2 liters or more of water per day.
  • ​Average program is 23 day or 40 day.

One of the biggest concerns we hear from clients is where we get our HCG from and how it's mixed. When you begin the HCG Program our Physician or Nurse Practitioner will write a prescription for your HCG which is sent to our compounding pharmacy, the pharmacy will then deliver the HCG to Bodies By Design, after it has been delivered we will then set a appointment for you to come in and pick up at which time we will either mix the HCG in front of you or instruct you on how to mix at home, whichever you prefer. We will never mix your HCG without you being present and we will never give you HCG that is considered OTC (over the counter). You should never use HCG which has been purchased without a prescription or homeopathic as these products ​have been deemed illegal by the FDA.

​While on the HCG Program we recommend you stop by the clinic at your convenience weekly for your weigh-ins so that we may monitor your progress and address any problems you may be having with the medication or your diet. We understand this is not always possible and if you are unable to make it into the clinic weekly we encourage you to take advantage of our 24 hour support via phone or email @ 423-398-5273 and
