April is National Awareness Month and Diet Doc offers personalized hCG diet plans that support healthy hormone levels. Their diet uses the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, enhanced with vitamin B12 combined with a supervised ketogenic diet. The elements of this program, combined with proper exercise, are designed to support healthy hormone levels in the body. New theories have suggested that hCG encourages the body’s master hormone glad, the hypothalamus, to reset the endocrine system, the body’s entire hormone system.
Cortisol, also known as the primary stress hormone, is a steroid hormone that not only increases blood sugar and suppresses the immune system but it also plays a key role in aiding in fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism. Higher and prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream, known as high stress, are found to have many negative effects on the body such as high blood pressure, suppressed thyroid function,
weakened immune system and obesity to name a few.
Diet Doc’s weight loss program mainly supports hormonal balance through their supervised diet plan. Their plan, inspired by the ketogenic diet, puts an emphasis on nutrient-rich vegetables and protein, essential supplements and uses a medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil as their source of fat. They claim that this diet plan in combination with regular intake of hCG will provide healthy, lasting weight loss. In fact, a recent study done by Dr. Sherri Emma, has shown that the hCG diet has lasting weight loss effects through the use of burning fat instead of muscle.
