Losing weight is more than just about looking good; being overweight is a significant health risk factor for diabetes, cancer, dementia, and heart disease among others. It is estimated that 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or obese in the United States, which makes obesity a national epidemic. Therefore, an effective weight loss program is critical for the prevention of most chronic diseases, along with feeling and looking good.
Most low-calorie diets are neither healthy nor effective at losing and keeping weight off. Lisa Ohman Erhard M.D. and Mark Erhard M.D.’s HCG program is a medically supervised diet resulting in safe, healthy, and rapid weight loss ranging between 20-25 lbs. in 40 days.
What is the HCG Diet?
The HCG Diet allows men and women to use a hormone that women produce naturally during pregnancy, which is known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone, to eat away at fat stores, while following a low-calorie diet of around 500 calories per day. Unlike many other diets, the HCG Diet is able to unlock unwanted fat deposits to be used as energy. It also allows people to have energy and feel full while on the diet. The body has different types of fat, and while some fats are necessary for sustaining health, others can be stored and difficult to lose. The HCG Diet allows these fat stores to be tapped into.
The HCG releases 1500-4000 calories in fat per day into the bloodstream, which is the only reason why a 500-calorie diet does not make dieters tired and hungry. Without the HCG releasing the unwanted fat and calories into the bloodstream, the patient would be miserable with hunger, experience mood fluctuations, and face nutritional deficiencies. Minneapolis HCG Doctors Lisa Ohman Erhard M.D. and Mark Erhard M.D. can help patients tailor diets to suit specific needs and create meal plans that work for the individual.
Most diets begin weight loss by draining water weight and eating away at muscle. These diets do not have a strong effect on fat stored on the abdomen, upper arms, hips, thighs, and buttocks. The HCG Diet, however, tends to target areas that have the largest fat stores, and for this reason, people have a much leaner appearance after finishing the HCG Diet Protocol.
The HCG diet allows the body to tap into problem areas that are not usually accessible to the body. Despite how much people exercise and cut calories, they may still have difficulty losing weight in areas with a high fat content. The HCG hormone coupled with a very low-calorie diet allows these fat deposits to be tapped into, released into the bloodstream, and used for energy. The HCG Diet can also improve health by helping people to implement healthier food choices. These healthier foods can lead to detoxifying the hypothalamus and enabling it to clear itself of the chemical build-up that could be preventing weight loss and re-establishing the healthy functioning of the hypothalamus.

Starting Your HCG Diet
The HCG diet consists of a program that Dr. Lisa Erhard and Dr. Mark Erhard put together during your first visit. Each diet is specific to your needs, age, and goals. Your first appointment will consist of a medical exam to determine if you are a good candidate for the HCG weight loss program. You will discuss your past dieting attempts, your goals for the HCG diet, and your medical history.
Dr. Lisa Erhard and Dr. Mark Erhard will set up your goals, calorie intake, and go over the daily schedule of HCG that needs to be administered. They will answer any questions you have, so please make sure to bring your questions to your appointment. HCG can only be prescribed by a physician. While on the program you will meet with your doctor regularly so that your progress can be monitored, and your safety ensured while taking the HCG.
Dr. Lisa Erhard and Dr. Mark Erhard use HCG subcutaneous injections that you will self-administer for 40 days. You will be taught how to safely inject the HCG subcutaneous drops, and you will continue to self-administer the injections throughout the duration of your HCG diet. The HCG hormone typically takes 3 days to begin to take effect and “kick in”. After 40 days you will stop taking the drug because your body can develop an immunity to the drug. At the end of 40 days if you have not reached to your goal weight, Dr. Lisa Erhard and Dr. Mark Erhard will have you take a 6-week break. This break allows your body to fully re-sensitize to the drug. At the end of the 6-weeks you will begin the next 40-day cycle. This will be continued until you have been through 4 cycles; it is not recommended to complete more than four 40-day cycles of HCG for safety and health.
The HCG program has proven to be successful and well tolerated by many satisfied patients. Dr. Lisa Erhard and Dr. Mark Erhard have ample experience in helping patients achieve their weight loss goals and prevent obesity related diseases.
