Various appetite suppressants, such as phentermine, can be used for a limited period of time for fast weight loss in overweight people when appropriate. In the absence of contraindications, we make appetite suppressants available when it is safe and appropriate to do so.
HCG- (Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin) is available when desired and appropriate. Contrary to popular belief, HCG does not necessarily increase the amount of fat loss. It does seem to make losing fat easier and the specific undesirable fat is believed to be mobilized preferentially. Some people just truly feel better while using HCG. However the weight loss is a function of caloric restriction primarily. In pregnancy, HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a natural hormone produced in large quantities during pregnancy to ensure proper nutrients to a developing baby. For both girl and boy babies HCG allows the baby to derive energy more effectively from the baby from burning mother’s fat.
