We recently received this questions from Joe:  I have done the HCG diet previously with you and saw incredible results. Due to unforseen circumstances, I gained it back. What is the difference between the “SURROUND THE DRAGON WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM” and the regular HCG program? What are the typical results and time frame? Hi Joe- Good to hear from you!  The “Surround The Dragon HCG Weight Loss Program” is my HCG program to the next level.  I’ve taken my areas of expertise in acupuncture, B-12 injections and Chinese medicine to help my weight loss patients with a more well rounded program.  Of course results will vary from patient to patient.  I can tell you that I personally just finished the program and only having 16% body fat I was able to lose a little over 22 pounds landing on my ideal body weight for my size and height.  Now, a patient who is more overweight than I was to start, will have greater results in the same time period.  Typically I have seen patients lose 30-45 pounds in the first 30-45 days.  I’d love to help you get back on track Joe, please stop by and say hello and I can go over the enhanced program with you.  Whenever you’re ready I’ll be here!

Vitamin B-12 is commonly known as the “energy vitamin.” It helps maintain a healthy digestive system, protect against cancers, speeds up your metabolism and makes you more energetic. Vitamin B-12 injections are believed to help people lose weight and increase energy.
