HCG Weight Loss Program
The HCG Weight Loss Plan was discovered in the 1950’s by Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons. He discovered that giving HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in small amounts will alter how your body metabolizes fat. In other words, it allows your body to target and shed stored fat while maintaining your muscle mass. The hypothalamus, in your brain, reacts to the HCG and begins this process. Dr. Simeons found that with a low calorie diet along with the HCG injections, patients were safely and effectively losing weight.

The HCG diet at Horizons is doctor tested and supervised. The program is 6-8 weeks and is personalized just for you. The HCG diet is divided into 3 phases:
