HOUSTON, Oct. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Although marketing and website promotion of the use of many drugs, including hCG, that claim to deliver fast weight loss results has become extremely popular, Diet Doc cautions consumers to be alert and be aware of what they are actually purchasing. While legitimate hCG weight loss clinics do exist, the vast majority of online information pertaining to hCG is designed to confuse and gain profit from unknowing consumers. For this reason, the experts at Diet Doc have outlined false and unsubstantiated claims advertised on online hCG internet sites:
- 99% of online hCG websites promise safe and fast weight loss while promoting a 500 calorie per day diet.
Decades of scientific research have revealed that there is absolutely nothing about losing weight on hCG that requires patients to consume so few calories and, in fact, restricting one's caloric intake to the dangerously low 500 calories per day can pose very serious and significant health risks.
- hCG is a permanent cure for obesity.
hCG is not a permanent cure for weight loss and management. Any method of weight loss requires long-term strategies to prevent regaining weight.
- There are special hCG programs for women and for men.
Each person's metabolism is different and the rate at which they lose weight may differ; however, there are no special programs that promote faster weight loss in either sex.
- Homeopathic hCG is the same as prescription hCG.
Homeopathic drugs are highly diluted, many times to the point that they no longer contain any of the intended ingredient, as well as containing unknown ingredients that may cause serious side effects. Pure hCG is available by prescription only and should always be dispensed by a qualified professional. Fraudulent medical claims are not only unethical, but also illegal.
- hCG will reset the metabolism for permanent weight loss.
hCG is not a permanent solution for weight loss. Those who choose a medically guided weight loss plan that includes support and guidance, as well as a plan for long term weight management, have proven to be the most successful in keeping unwanted weight off. In fact, a tremendous failing of nearly all online hCG weight loss is the lack of long term support and an effective maintenance program.
Decades of scientific research has enabled Diet Doc to modernize and modify the original hCG diet protocol and earn their reputation by providing their clients with complete diet plans that are medically supervised throughout. The company does not support the outdated, 500-calorie per day hCG diet and tailors their meal plans to be compatible with each patient's nutritional, medical and lifestyle needs.
