All of the weight loss programs at Horizons are doctor tested and supervised. In addition, each program is customized for your specific needs and goals. Our most successful program is our HCG program. It uses the natural hormone HCG and Lipo 7, and emphasizes fresh, nutritious foods. In combination with a short-term low calorie diet, HCG and Lipo 7 injections will help reduce hunger and boost both metabolism and energy.
Phases of HCG
- Days 1 and 2
- HCG injection daily
- AKA gorge/loading days
- Can eat anything, including foods with a high fat content
- Days 3-30 or 40 (depends on your specific plan
- HCG injection Daily
- 500 kcal/day diet, no fats or oils
- Low-moderate cardio permitted
- Weekly Lipo-7 injection
- 21 days following Phase 2
- No HCG injections
- Limited carbohydrate intake (see diet plan for details)
- Cardio and strength training permitted
A New Life in 30 Days
What makes HCG so successful for our patients is that it’s a short-term diet teaching life-long values.
For only 30 days you will combine a low calorie diet with daily HCG injections and weekly Lipo 7 injections. The motivation of seeing your dramatic weight loss combined with new knowledge about nutrition will help this be a sustained life style.
What can you eat?
Planning your meals is crucial to the HCG diet protocol. To make it easier for you we have sample meal plans and clear instructions on the diet.
- First of all don’t let fear guide the steps that you take BUT respond with common sense and wisdom
- Wash your hands. Seems simple BUT this is the major means of preventing passing this infection along
- If you have symptoms: fever/chills, muscle aches, cough; Stay at home and heal. The majority of these infections are mild
- If you have difficulty breathing or have other illnesses that could make a viral infection worst then you should go to the Emergency Room.
- Pregnant women should follow the SAME precautions. There hasn’t been any literature that shows that you can pass this on to your baby. Any infection can cause preterm contractions so call your OB if you think there are problems.
- Please refrain from bringing your children with you to appointments, due to limited waiting space and COVID-19 recommendations.
How Horizons is working to keep you safe in the office:
- Limited touching of doorknobs or other surfaces in the office
- No lobby waiting
- Each patient is screened prior to visit
- No sick visits – ALL sick visits must be done via our Televisit option – see below for instructions
Meet our new Nurse Practitioner, Rachael Jennings!
Rachael has been an ICU nurse for 7 years. She is board certified and Credentialed by American Nurses Credentialing Center in August, 2019.
Rachael had tried to lose weight for several years. As a marathon runner, she used to believe that if she ran long miles, or worked out vigorously she could eat whatever she wanted because she had the “calories to spare.” Learning that she couldn’t “out work a bad diet” was the turning point. She began our HCG weight loss program and in the first week lost a total of 7lbs!! Overall she lost 30 lbs on the program and has maintained that weight loss.
