 If you are struggling with obesity the HCG diet works for quick permanent weight loss. We charge a fraction of what our competitors are charging and also offer discounts on some of our other product for those who take on the HCG diet. We will be there for you whenever you need and check in weekly to track your progress. We are here to help and you won't be on your own with the diet. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. HCG is a pregnancy hormone. When your system is flooded with this hormone your brain thinks it has to feed the phantom baby.  You release abnormally stored fat to feed the baby.  Stubborn fat under your arm, in your inner thighs, around your butt and abdomen go into circulation while your body sculpts into shape.  Not even a diet and a trainer can do this in 40 days.

Piermont Gynecology and Second Nature partnered to create our HCG diet. Our version is the best.  We only use an FDA approved compounding pharmacy for real injectable HCG not the homeopathic version because we deliver permanent results.  Unlike other more expensive HCG protocols, we do a thorough intake and follow you weekly for the entire cycle.  We are on-call every day for your questions, comments and concerns.
