Dr. Oz Evaluates the HCG Diet Program: Weight Loss Miracle or Hype? Amaya Wellness Group, of Houston, Katy, and Sugar Land, Texas Responds and Commends His Conclusion.
Celebrity physician, Dr. Oz did a show evaluating all aspects of the HCG Diet program including the Dr. Simeon’s protocol and HCG drops; and determined that the diet warrants further investigation but should not be explored without doctor supervision. Amaya Wellness Group commends Dr. Oz on his findings and responds.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 15, 2011
Recently on the Dr. Oz Show, the celebrity physician did a segment called Weight Loss Miracle or Hype: The HCG Diet. Dr. Oz featured interviews from individuals who’ve undergone the HCG diet, proponents, critics and doctors who prescribe HCG. At the close of the segment, Dr. Oz delivered his verdict on the HCG diet: “It’s worth investigating.” Although, he believes the diet should only be undertaken by individuals when under the care of a doctor that specializes in the HCG diet.
Amaya Wellness Group, a leading group of Antiaging and Health and Wellness Clinics with locations in Houston, Katy, and Sugar Land, responds and commends Dr. Oz on his thorough research and investigation; and concurs with him on the importance of doctor supervision while administering the HCG Diet.
The International Advisor and Research Director for Amaya Wellness Group, Dr. Anoop Chaturvedi, is a proponent of the healthy life style with HCG Diet Protocol and commented on Dr. Oz’s verdict, “HCG is not the only way to lose weight, more important is balanced hormones, a healthy life style, proper spacing of the meals, portion size and continuous guidance and support system from family friends and a health professional or coach. HCG is not meant for everyone who wants to lose weight. In fact, in some cases it causes weight gain with a protein rich diet. The key to success is, including but not limited to, proper identification of the patient.”
Dr. Oz said that the HCG Diet is a controversial diet where people claim to lose one pound a day over forty days and yet they never feel hungry. People including doctors have lost weight on the HCG Diet, so does it really work? Is it safe? Is it the miracle weight loss tool we have been waiting for?
The HCG Diet protocol consists of HCG injections along with a very low 500 calorie diet. The use of HCG for the medical management of obesity is based on the extensive research completed in 1954 by world-renowned physician Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. With the HCG weight loss protocol, HCG dieters consume 500 calories a day and self administer small doses of HCG injections for sustained weight loss.
Based on Dr. Oz’s detailed investigation, here’s what he concluded for anyone interested in the HCG Diet:
1. Dr. Oz does not recommend HCG drops, as there was no way to guarantee the amount of HCG, if any, in them;
2. Dr. Oz cautions viewers not to buy HCG drops or HCG supplements at a drug store, vitamin store, or online; instead, they should consult a doctor who prescribes HCG and try the diet only under their care.
3. Dr. Oz acknowledged that while no formal studies have proven the success of HCG injections in the past, the success stories of the show’s participants indicate that for some people, the HCG diet does work, and for that reason, it’s worth a shot.
4. One of Dr. Oz’s guests, a heart doctor, who tried and had success with the HCG diet, and concluded regarding the safety of the diet, “The health risks of obesity were greater than the risks of HCG.”
5. Dr. Oz insisted that nobody should undertake a 500 calorie diet of any kind without a doctor being involved. However, Dr. Oz does think that with a doctor supervision there’s some rational reasons to do a 500 calorie diet.
Amaya Wellness Group offers physician monitored comprehensive medical weight loss programs utilizing the HCG Diet programs that are customized to patient’s needs and goals. Each program is uniquely designed to help safely and effectively lose the weight and most important to keep it off. Since HCG is a hormone and overzealous unsupervised use can lead to side effects like ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome. Medical supervision and compliance with HCG program is required to see optimal results. Results may vary from person to person and cannot be guaranteed.
DISCLAIMER: HCG is FDA approved for fertility treatments in women and also increases testosterone, sperm count and fertility in men suffering from oligospermia. The use of HCG, as a hormone for weight reduction treatments has not been approved by the FDA as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. As per the FDA there is no substantial evidence that HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or ‘normal’ distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets.
