OptiHealth Institute – 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.
Patients that decide to embark on an HCG diet weight loss journey can lose significant amounts of weight, with many patients losing as much as 30 pounds after just one course of a properly administered HCG diet plan.
While on the HCG diet, patients must follow a strict low-calorie meal plan that consists of only lean natural foods amounting in a total intake of around 500 calories per day. This low-calorie intake coupled with the daily supplementation of HCG hormones encourages the body to metabolize fat stores, keeping your energy levels high and boosting metabolic performance without the implementation of an exercise plan.
- Dr. Nager's Approach
Dr. Nager’s journey led him to embrace Functional Medicine, which is an evidence-based practice that views the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership. Functional Medicine focuses on the whole person and uses an array of scientific disciplines to heal illnesses and help people regain and maintain optimal health. To further this goal, Dr. Nager enrolled in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine’s fellowship program in Anti-Aging, Metabolic, and Functional Medicine. He went on to become Board-Certified in Anti-Aging, Functional, and Regenerative Medicine.

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.
