Exercising on the HCG diet can actually hinder weight loss, slow the metabolism and is not recommended on a 500 calorie diet. If exercise is done while on the HCG diet, the body will begin believe that it needs more energy and can begin take away lean muscle mass. A daily 30-minute walk is recommended, provided you do not already have a strenuous daily routine, but adding extra exercise will not aid in weight loss on the HCG diet.
The HCG hormone is given via subcutaneous injection and absorbed through fatty tissue. The injection is given in a very small insulin syringe and can be injected in any area on the body that fat is pocketed. The most common injection sites include the abdomen, thighs, upper backs of the arms, and the lower back. Injection sites can be rotated to prevent discomfort. <a href=”/how-to-give-a-sub-q-injection”
HCG is considered safe. Women experience very high levels of HCG during pregnancy without any negative side effects. At Nu Image Medical®, we provide 100% pure HCG by prescription only. We do not use homeopathic or hormone-free product that can be harmful to the body. It is also important while on HCG, to follow a physician-guided diet protocol and have access to medical assistance throughout the program in case you should have a question or need some additional help. If for some reason, we felt the diet may not be in your best interest due to a particular medical concern, you may not be approved to start the HCG program.
HCG is NOT contraindicated with any medications. Please continue taking ALL medications prescribed to you by your physician or primary care provider. Most over the counter medications are compatible with HCG as well. However, make sure to check the label for any sugar alcohols or additives as these may prevent weight loss and halt success on the program. For example: gummy vitamins, cough syrup, etc. If you have any questions about a particular medication, please contact our medical department at 888-520-3438.
