HCG Diets, Frauds, Placebos…..


HCG Diets, Frauds, Placebos, Unproven or Lucrative Niches for Doctors?

Everyone who is trying to loss weight should read the two great articles written by Ken Alltucker, The Arizona Republic – Jan. 26, 2011, click links below.

Before Déjà Vu Med Spa in Goodyear, AZ, launched their Physician Managed Weight Loss Program in November of 2008, their Medical Director, Co-Owner, Brian Dursteler, M.D., FACP, did extensive research into HCG. Going back through research into the 1970s, he could not find any evidence that HCG contributed to weight loss. HCG is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. Have you ever known a pregnant woman who lost weight?

The HCG Diet does have two factors that can result in weight loss. The first is the placebo effect. It has been proven that your belief can produce some results. The second factor is the 500 calorie a day diet. At the 500 calorie level, your body can go into starvation mode in which your systems are trying to maintain vital functions at the expense of fat, muscle and bone. You probably didn’t really want to lose muscle and bone.

For those who lost weight with the HCG + 500 calorie diet and have successfully maintained your loss, congratulations. Somewhere through the starvation process you learned the key to weight loss is what you eat and how much you eat. You then made the lifestyle changes necessary to support the new more active, slimmer, healthier you.

If you could have done it all by yourself, why did you spend the $1000 and go through the suffering? Maybe, you needed the encouragement and support to be successful. That’s where Déjà Vu Med Spa can help.

At Déjà Vu Med Spa, our Physician Managed Weight Loss Program has served over 1,000 clients with losses of 10 to 20 lbs / mo. We teach you, coach you and track your health and success.
