The premise of this diet is relatively simple: patients must reduce their intake of carbohydrates and increase their intake of protein. The consumption of carbs causes spikes of insulin, the hormone responsible for storing fat, in the body. In contrast, high protein intake helps keep your metabolism high and encourages the creation of muscle mass. This helps patients burn fat, while building sustainable, healthy muscle.
As far as the intake of food goes, the hCG diet is similar to our low carb diet; the only difference is that patients on the hCG diet also receive a designated amount of hCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin every day. This hormone is produced by pregnant women and is safe for both male and female patients to take in appropriate doses.
This fat reduction technique is based on the theory that there are three types of fat: fat supporting the kidneys and arteries, fat deposited all around the body that is used as fuel, and fixed body fat. This fixed body fat is thought to cause obesity and is not as easily burned by the body as the fuel fat. Based on this logic, “starvation” diets attack the fat that is to be used as fuel, leaving the patient fatigued without actually burning any of their body fat. The hormone hCG is thought to help the body attack this “fixed” fat. When a patient injects hCG while consuming a low-calorie, low-carb diet, that patient is believed to be more likely to burn excess fat and lose weight.
During the Innovative Protein program, clients consume high protein meal replacements, undergo intensive counseling, and consume prescription appetite suppressants. All of these measures are taken with the goal of increasing lean body mass and decreasing fat mass.
