Weight Loss

If it's time to get down to a healthy weight, we can help. Rochester Regional Men's Health experts help men reset their metabolism to burn stored fat. Weight loss programs are medically designed for each man's body type and chemistry. No matter what type of treatment is needed, our team will prescribe a program from a variety of options, including hormone balancing, adjustable diets, medical treatment or hCG - all designed to optimize weight loss results.

About hCG Treatment

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that elevates testosterone levels and increases metabolism to burn stored fats. hCG fuels the body by using stored fat to be released as energy, not only helping people lose body fat, but also affecting the fat accumulations that are resistant to typical diets and exercise. hCG has been proven safe and effective when monitored by medical professionals, to help people lose body fat - especially in the most difficult areas.


What is hCG & how does it work?

A natural hormone that resets the brain to think it's satisfied

hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin which is a natural hormone that is found in all bodies. When taken in very small doses, it aids in burning abnormal fat, which is usually found in excess in our stomach, back, butt, hips, thighs and underside of arms

By administering a scientifically proven dose of one of the bodies natural hormones, our medical team can reset the caloric thermometer in the brain to help it think it’s satiated. This suppresses the appetite and resets the metabolism to use abnormal stored fat as energy. hCG treatments are effective, legitimate, and safe when monitored by a physician and their medical team. When used in combination with the low calorie diet, hCG will aid your body in losing 1-3 pounds per day.

How much weight can you loose on the HCG Diet?

40 pounds in 40 days

Vitalize clients report a loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day. At the very least you can expect to lose half a pound a day, and at the most, 3 plus pounds a day. Men generally lose more weight than women. Women typical lose 15 lbs on the 23 day program and up to 30 lbs on the 46 day program if following the program correctly. Men typically lose 20 to 25 lbs on the 23 day program and up to 40 lbs on the 46-day program if following the program correctly.

Wouldn't you lose the weight with just a low calorie diet?

You'd lose weight with a low calorie diet but not in your stored fat reserves -- where it counts

At Vitalize the most frequently asked question is, "wouldn't you lose weight anyway, if you only ate 500-700 calories?" You would lose weight, but not from your stored locked-in fat! The body has a natural protective mechanism that is designed to store fat in order to prevent death and starvation. When a person tries to reduce calories to lose weight, the body goes into shock, stores the fat and begins to burn lean muscle for fuel. Only as a last resort will the body let go of its abnormal fat reserve. And you would be hungry, fatigued and irritable. And of course, you would do nothing to re-balance your metabolism. With Vitalize's medically-monitored hCG weight loss program, your goal is to lose fat; not starve to death.

How about safety and side effects of hCG?

hCG has been proven safe & successful for over five decades

Because it is a natural substance, this program is completely safe and has been used successfully for more than 5 decades. It is virtually 100% effective for everyone, except if you are pregnant or nursing. At Vitalize all of our hCG comes from a licensed US FDA approved pharmacy and is certified for safety and sterility.

There are no side effects reported while using hCG for weight loss. When higher dose hCG injections are used for fertility reasons, the larger amount is known to cause occasional headaches and pregnancy symptoms. However, the amount of hCG used in the diet protocol is a very tiny dose - significantly less than the amount of hCG used for fertility purposes. In addition to weight loss, many patients who have completed the hCG program also experienced many other healthy side effects including a drop in cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.

Why is the hCG plan worth the costs vs. other plans?

THE hCG diet is the best kept secret in hollywood as it's the fastest way to get in shape fast

No other diet treatment can burn the bodies stored fat build up quickly - while safely regulating the large amount of weight loss under the care of a physician - the way the hCG diet at Vitalize can.  This is the truly the secret of the stars - many celebrities are reported to use this diet when they want to lose weight fast and as their metabolism is reset during the treatment, they can more easily maintain their weight loss.

How do you take hCG dosages?

Easy, no discomfort injections because the needle is so tiny

Vitalize has two methods of taking hCG. You can take it by oral troche (A small medicated lozenge designed to dissolve in the mouth) or by injection. 90% of customers choose injection once they see how tiny the insulin syringe is. To give you an idea of the size, it is the same syringe size used to give children allergy shots. It is administered just under the skin, Sub Q and you do not feel any discomfort. In fact, you will not even know that it has been administered. Case histories indicate that HCG is slightly less efficiently used by your body when taken orally, although the new oral troche used by Vitalize has produced very effective results hCG has helped thousands of people lose those stubborn and frustrating pounds.
