Dr. Bowen is proud to offer the physician-directed medical weight loss program, TrimYou™ Certified hCG Weight Loss Plan. We are the only TrimYou Certified office in the area.
HCG is a complex molecule/glycoprotein that contains over 300 aminopeptides. It is found in all male and female human tissue. It occurs in very high levels in females during pregnancy, produced by the placenta.
Although hCG is a drug approved by the FDA, it is not specifically approved by the FDA for weight loss. When a physician prescribes hCG for weight loss, this is called an ‘off-label’ use of the drug.
The TrimYou diet that we offer is based on the work of a physician named Dr. ATW Simeons. Dr. Simeons described three types of fat:
- Structural Fat is the necessary fat supporting the kidneys, cushioning the arteries, etc.
- Normal Fat is what our bodies use for fuel and is localized all over the body.
- Abnormal Fat is surplus fat that accumulates around our waist, hips, thighs and abdomen and causes obesity. Fat deposits of this kind can be “fixed” with the hCG Diet Protocol discovered, researched, and documented by Dr. ATW Simeons on over 100,000 patients.
Using hCG combined with a very low calorie diet, the brain is tricked to think your body is in a “starvation state,” demanding you use up calories from your fat storage at a rate of up to 1/2 to 1 pound of fat per day. Remarkably, you are able to do this without feeling starved. The plan forces your body to use up your fat stores, so you are fueling your body with fat stores you are burning, instead of food intake. No exercise is required for this program to be effective. Although this may sound a bit scary, this is actually a diet that has shown great results for many years. It is monitored by Dr. Bowen’s medical staff to make sure you are losing weight safely and effectively.
HCG by itself does not cause fat loss. Rather, the specific TrimYou protocol incorporating (1) a Very Low Calorie Diet, (2) a rigid selection of allowable food choices, and (3) a precise dosage of hCG causes the fat loss. The hCG molecule triggers the body to burn its fat stores. These calories are then used by the body and provide the additional 2,000-3,000 calories needed daily by those on the hCG Diet. hCG is “muscle preserving.” Therefore, the majority (if not all) of the weight loss is lost body fat.

TrimYou hCG Weight Loss Program Patient Testimonial
“During my consultation, I was skeptical that I would lose an average of a pound of fat a day on the program. These doubts were quickly abolished in the first week. I was amazed how the pounds simply melted away without an exercise regimen or ever feeling tired or hungry. I felt empowered and energized. I lost a total of 34 pounds and went from a size 24 to a size 14 in six weeks.”
