When following the hCG diet plan, the theory is that the low calorie diet allows you to start losing weight, while the hCG injections reduce your appetite and make sure you’re burning fat rather than muscle. It resets your metabolism and stabilizes it. It helps eliminate cravings too which is great! It’s practically a paleo diet but even cleaner! No sugar, alcohol, gluten or dairy. Most people lose about .5-1 pound a day on average. It’s about 6 weeks of injections (sub q- right under the skin, tiny insulin needle) and the low calorie diet. After that the program takes you through 4 weeks of maintenance and helps you slowly increase your calories while also integrating foods back into your diet. The majority of people keep the weight off (give or take a few pounds) long term.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, commonly referred to as HCG, is a hormone created/released by women who are pregnant. This hormone has been shown to convert fat deposits in the human body into usable energy.
As mentioned above, HCG injections are always combined with a specialized low-calorie HCG diet. This diet functions by having your body run off the new energy created by the injections – up to 1,700 per day. Your body will be burning what used to be stubborn fat deposits, all while keeping muscle and other normal fats.
The diet is an extreme and strict, low calorie diet BUT the results can be phenomenal!!
HCG in itself does not make you lose weight – the low calorie diet makes you lose weight while the HCG protects your muscle mass and targets your fat cells, CHANGING the way your body loses weight and the pace!
By patient report, HCG reduces feelings of hunger. This allows them to eat very little comfortably. Why? It is believed the presence of HCG in the bloodstream takes the appetite away.
HCG is a pro-hormone which helps the body make more hormones. Since hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reason for weight gain, whether it’s your thyroid, or menopause (or andropause), this hormone offers help.
Only HCG injections have been shown to raise blood levels of HCG, so that is the only acceptable way of taking HCG at this time. Any other way of taking HCG, such as drops, pills, or sprays, are likely dissolved before ever reaching the blood, and they do not raise blood levels; this would be like taking nothing at all.
An injection is the only proven method of taking HCG at this time. Injections should only be taken with a prescription from a doctor, and under medical supervision.
HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.
Why does that matter? During a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost. Because muscle is heavy, this loss looks good on the scale because the pounds are dropping quickly. When you lose muscle, it’s bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that dieter regain weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost.

What Are Lipotropics?
Lipotropic compounds are a combination of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that help metabolize fat in the body. Combined with diet and exercise, lipotropic injections can speed up the process of fat breakdown and enhance your weight loss results.
Vitamin B1 - Essential for glucose metabolism.
Vitamin B2 - Breaks down protein, fats, and carbohydrates.
Vitamin B3 - Helps convert food into energy.
Vitamin B6 - Aids in the production of important neurotransmitters in the brain.
Vitamin B12a - Supports the normal functioning of the nervous system.
L-Carnitine - An amino acid which transports fatty acids into the mitochondria.
Methionine - Also an amino acid that contains sulfur. It helps prevent the buildup of excess fat in the liver.
Inositol - One of the nutrients that belongs to the B vitamin complex. It works to reduce blood cholesterol and support the metabolism of fats.
Choline - Helps to transport fat and cholesterol, as well as help the liver excrete chemical waste products inside the body.
What are LipoLean Injections?
THE Lipolean Injection is a combination of the following Vitamins and Amino acids that help the body metabolize fat, Detoxify and Cleanse the body, and protect it from free radicals that cause premature aging!!!
Leucine – triggers reduction in calorie intake, causing a drop in in-between-meal snacking and
increasing energy. Leucine helps you shed subcutaneous fat (just under the skin) very quickly and helps
stabilize blood sugar – a great help to those with type 2 diabetes.
Vitamin C – is a Super Antioxidant that knocks out free radicals that cause premature aging and helps
support a Healthy Immune System!!!
Chromium – known to enhance the action of insulin (critical to the metabolism and storage of
carbohydrate, fat, and protein in the body). Appears to be directly involved in carbohydrate, fat, and
protein metabolism. Chromium appears in most all Weight Loss Supplements.
L-Carnitine – Helps the body produce energy which is important for Muscle Movement, Brain Function, and Heart Function. Also another Free radical fighting Antioxidant that helps the body stay healthy.
Vitamin D – is not only a Vitamin but a hormone. it has long been known Vitamin D helps Strengthen bones. However, recent research indicates that Vitamin D deficiency could increase your risk for Heart disease, many types of cancer, Auto-Immune disease, Blood Sugar Control, Brain Function, fatigue, muscle aches and mild depression.
Methionine – works with choline to detoxify amines; acts as a catalyst for choline and inositol, opening
up their function; aids in removing liver fat and protects the kidneys. Great Detoxifier!
Inositol – deficiency can lead to hair loss; works w/ vitamin E to facilitate as actions in the treatment of
Muscular Dystrophy; caffeine can cause depletion of inositol.
Choline – metabolizes fats; detoxifies amines which are by products of protein metabolism.
B1 (Thiamine) – helps your body to use carbohydrates for energy. It is also important for normal
function of your heart, muscles, and nervous system.
B2 (Riboflavin) – metabolism and the conversion of food into energy; helps produce red blood cells
B3 (Niacin) – assists in digestion and the conversion of food into energy; important in the production of cholesterol
B5 (Pantothenic Acid) – important in fatty acid metabolism
B6 – important for the nervous system; helps the body metabolize proteins and sugar
B12 (Cobalamin) – Gives you a boost of Energy for weeks and also plays an important part in the production of red blood cells
How Long Does it Take For Lipotropic/LipoLean Injections To Work?
The time it takes for a lipotropic injection to produce results will vary greatly depending on the individual fitness plan and weight loss goals. However, we recommend starting off with one injection bi-weekly.
It’s important to note that the enhanced metabolism that comes from an injection is not permanent. As the effect wears off, your body’s metabolism will return to normal.
Does It Hurt?
No. A lipotropic injection is administered quickly using an insulin needle subcutaneously in a fatty part of the body. A LipoLean injection is no different than a flu shot and is administered intramuscular.
Are There Other Benefits to vitamin cocktail Injections?
Yes! The benefits of vitamin injections aren’t limited to weight loss!!!!
It’s less invasive when compared to other weight loss procedures, such as liposuction.
Their B12 content provides increased energy.
The vitamin compounds can aid digestion, skin, and nerve health.
It encourages the export of fat and bile from the liver.
These vitamin injections can even can balance out uneven hormone levels.
Will These Produce Results?
They will - when used properly. A vitamin injection is a simple yet effective tool for weight loss, but it shouldn’t be the only tool. New and existing patients should remember that lipotropics are not intended to be used as a weight loss tool on their own. These are most effective when they are combined with proper nutrition and an exercise regimen.
