Summary of our Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program
First, we look for underlying causes that encourage weight gain and/or are impeding your ability to lose weight. A lot of people suffer from underlying medical conditions that can make weight loss feel like an impossible task. We will do a comprehensive panel of blood work before you start the diet so that we can address those hurdles first, in order to optimize your diet results.
We will customize a diet plan specifically for you based on what your body’s needs are and to treat underlying medical conditions causing excess weight. Some of the things that we test for include hypothyroidism, hormonal changes, Candida or yeast overgrowth, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), insulin resistance, and chronic stress. Because we look for the root cause of your weight gain and address accordingly, we set you up for success if you follow the diet plan!
The medically supervised weight loss plan incorporates the use of HCG, also known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone. When used in conjunction with the diet, HCG can break down fat storage and convert it into energy. This accelerates weight loss and helps you feel less hungry.

Within 3 months 50 pounds fell off of me! I had so much energy and felt young again! I have referred so many friends that are experiencing the same thing! It has been a year and the weight has stayed off! The diet is awesome and was a life saver for me!” – G.N. *
“My wife went to a seminar with a friend and that’s how we decided to do it. I lost 26 pounds and my wife lost about 20. I think overall, it’s a great plan, but not only just the diet plan, but it’s being able to meet with the nurse practitioner. And getting your hormone levels corrected and stuff like that. Overall, it’s awesome.” – J.A. *
“I had a very positive experience with the diet program, which resulted in me losing 27 pounds! The staff were awesome! I felt like they really cared about me. The nurse practitioner was very thorough and explained everything. The nurses were awesome. Never had any complaints about any of my visits.

It was a bit expensive, but it was worth it. I felt like they were very professional and thorough.” – A.C. *
HCG Diet Fundamentals
Science proves that hormone imbalances can affect weight. At our offices, hormone testing is included with the diet program. The reason for this is because if your hormones are low or out of balance, you can diet, change your eating habits, and exercise, and still not lose weight. Many patients come to us for this very reason. For example, low thyroid (hypothyroidism) causes your metabolism to be sluggish and weight gain is almost always inevitable. Also, both women and men need adequate testosterone levels in order to build muscle and burn fat. Cortisol is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands and diet, stress and lifestyle can all contribute to imbalanced cortisol levels. High cortisol levels can also result in weight gain.
Bio-Identical Hormone Cream
The medically supervised weight loss plan incorporates the use of HCG, also known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone. When used in conjunction with the diet, HCG can break down fat storage and convert it into energy.
Dr. Simeon, a British physician, discovered a correlation between HCG and the body’s ability to metabolize fat. He conducted research after observing malnourished women in India giving birth to healthy babies. It is HCG hormone that spikes in a pregnant woman’s body which allows the fetus to obtain nutrients from her fat stores, even if the woman herself is not getting the nutrition that she needs.
Dr. Simeon realized that the HCG hormone works to break down fat and convert it to energy. His research showed that it can produce the same results with both women and men. What is unique about HCG is its ability to push excess nutrients into the blood while maintaining lean muscle mass and suppressing appetite.
Modern medicine has utilized this hormone since the 1920s as a fertility supplement for both women and men. The HCG hormone that Renewed Vitality uses is the real thing. Some diets that are advertised on other plans claim that they use HCG as well in the form of drops. These “HCG drops” that are obtainable on the internet are actually a combination of various amino acids and aren’t actually the real hormone. Until recently, the only way you could get the real HCG hormone was by injections, which were done daily on the diet. Our medically supervised weight loss program includes the proper use of the actual hormone, but as a cream that you put on daily, and it is compounded for each individual at a high-quality pharmacy.
Candida, or yeast, can cause infections in the body and even affect gut health. It is actually parasitic in the body, feeding off of sugars and starches. This can be one of the causes of incessant sugar cravings. Fortunately, treatment is simple with anti-fungal medications. When yeast infections are eliminated, dieting is much more effective and cravings are greatly diminished.
HCG Diet Cookbook
The HCCG diet cookbook is included with the weight loss plan. When on this diet, your caloric intake will be greatly reduced and the amount of allowed foods is limited. The cookbook has many simple recipes using only the allowed foods so that you can still enjoy delicious meals while losing weight.
Though it isn’t common, some patients will still need a little extra help to suppress their appetite while on the diet. Our doctors and practitioners can prescribe appetite suppressants that are not addictive and have been proven safe to use.
This product is optional when on the diet. It is administered via injection once or twice a week and contains a mix of B vitamins, amino acids, and lipotropic agents. It can help with energy boosting and increasing fat removal.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the diet last?
6 weeks, but the diet can be repeated as needed after a break.
How much weight can I expect to lose?
On our medically supervised weight loss program, women can lose 20 – 30 pounds, and men can lose 25-35 pounds over the six -week diet period. This diet has a very high success rate, when followed exactly, however results are not guaranteed and can vary from person to person. Please note that this diet is NOT for anyone who only wants to lose 10 pounds or less, but rather for those that need to lose 20 pounds or more.
Why does this diet have such a high rate of success compared to others?
- First, because we look for potential root causes of your weight gain and/or difficulty losing weight and treat those accordingly. Hormones play a strong role in both weight and metabolism management and if they’re lacking or imbalanced, even the strictest diet is not going to work. We test for and address those and other possible issues before you even begin the diet so that obstacles beyond your control are eliminated.
- Second, the use of bio-identical HCG cream increases energy, helps the body to release fat and burn it and suppresses the appetite. Most folks aren’t even hungry when on the HCG diet! Rather than feeling depleted and tired from too few calories, the use of HCG helps your body provide the calories, nutrients, and energy that you need each day.
- The HCG diet cookbook provides nutritious and delicious recipes with ingredients that are all allowed on the diet.
- Slim Shot Injections are optional, if needed, but can help accelerate weight loss.
- The fact that this is a medically supervised weight loss program means that you are getting expert medical support and supervision throughout.

HCG Diet For Men
While the diet fundamentals are the same for men, the hormonal testing is somewhat different. Thyroid testing is the same as for women, but testosterone plays a much bigger role in weight loss obstacles for men especially as mid-life approaches (Andropause).
Testosterone levels begin to decrease around age 30 for men at the rate of 1% to 3% per year. Symptoms of low testosterone can include:
- Decreased energy levels
- Gaining excess weight, especially around the abdominal area
- Decreased sex drive
- Muscle mass loss
- Memory problems
When undergoing the HCG diet, testosterone levels will be checked in the initial lab work. If supplementation is needed, then a bio-identical testosterone will be prescribed to get you back up to healthier levels. Because low testosterone affects how a man loses weight, this obstacle will be eliminated.
The use of HGC hormone is also used for men and aids in metabolism and feeling less hungry.
