Belcara Health – Baltimore Maryland HCG Diet Specialists
Many people view weight loss as a very personal and private journey. Weight loss is a physical and emotional process that can be very difficult to achieve and maintain, especially when doing it alone. At Belcara Health, we developed BHFit – an innovative, medically supervised weight loss program that offers the opportunity for lasting weight loss quickly and safely. Our program combines prescription medication with professional nutritional guidance to help you lose weight, keep it off and stay fit for life. This combination of medical pharmacology with sound nutritional choices, our program enables your body to burn fat faster and more effectively so you can lose weight quickly, safely and comfortably.

BHFit – Rapid, Safe Weight Loss
The BHFit and BHFit+ weight loss programs utilize prescription medication to safely maximize fat burning potential, greatly increasing the speed of weight loss.
By combining medical pharmacology with sound nutritional choices, the body can burn fat faster and more effectively. BHFit = 23 day program | BHFit+ = 43 day program Both programs consist of four phases: Education, Preparation, Transformation, and Maintenance. The Phases are supported by our Board Certified Physicians and Licensed Dietitian to ensure that patients stay on track to reach and maintain their weight loss goals. So, What’s the Secret? The funny thing is, it’s not a secret. The BHFit and BHFit+ weight loss programs are fashioned after Dr. A.T.W. Simeons HCG protocol, introduced in 1954.
The late Dr. Simeons was a British Physician that devoted years to research on patients’ suffering from obesity. His research noted that the use of a very low-calorie diet, combined with the use of prescription hormones, allowed patients to lose weight rapidly, without hunger pains, weakness, or irritability. As patients lost more fat tissue directly from adipose tissue accumulations, it created highly visible contouring of the body. Like any weight loss program, the BHFit and BHFit+ programs require a level of dedication. Depending on which program you choose, you are committing yourself to either a 23 day (BHFit) or 43 day (BHFit+) program that will require you to adhere to a very low-calorie diet. Lifestyle changes require support and at Belcara Health, we are here for you every step of the way.
- HCG Diet
What is HCG Human Chorionic Gonadotropin?
Those who want to know more about the HCG diet should start by knowing what exactly HCG is. It stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, which is a hormone produced in women during pregnancy. It is naturally helpful in developing the embryo after conception, and it has been proven to be effective in preventing the degenerative muscle deterioration that is very common when people go on diets.
One of the things about the HCG diet people like most is that it works so quickly. Many people are able to lose between one half and one full pound per day, and sometimes even more. Those who try the HCG diet also find that despite the lower calorie restrictions of this diet, they don’t feel nearly as hungry as they thought they would have. This is because the HCG supplement also works as an appetite suppressant so they can eat low calorie diets without feeling hungry.
Some of the benefits of weight loss with the HCG Diet:
- Rapid Weight Loss
- Relearned Eating Habits
- Reset Metabolism
- Improved Health
- More Energy
- Increased Self Confidence
- Healthier Insulin Levels

We offer integrated, customized programs to help you transform your appearance, health and/or wellness so you can live a healthier, happier, more vibrant life.
We are proud to offer an alternative approach to medicine and nutrition, combining conventional and complementary approaches to help patients achieve optimal wellness. Integrative Medicine (IM) is the future of conventional medicine, combining traditional western medical practices with functional medicine. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of a medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Our doctors seek to identify and address the root causes of disease and view the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties.
We use the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques to create a plan that focuses on the prevention of disease through a combination of diet and nutrition, exercise, prescription drugs and/or botanical medicines and supplements, therapeutic diets and detoxification programs, stress-management techniques.
