I have done a couple of rounds of medical hCG 40 day oral drops. Over a 6 month period I lost 40 lbs and 10 inches. I have battled weight gain for years and by far this was the fastest, easiest and most healthy diet I have ever tried. I feel so much better about myself. I don’t have near the problems breathing that I used to either. I still have more weight I need to get off but I know that with the help of hCG and Dr. Barreto I am going to get there. The staff is extremely supportive and always there when I need them to give me the coaching I need to become a healthier me. I have learned that weight loss is a life style change. Thank you Dr. Barreto for showing me the way.
Barreto Health Care’s staff is always so encouraging and supportive. With their help I have lost weight and I’m so much closer to achieving my weight loss goals. My self confidence has been renewed and I am living a much healthier lifestyle which not only benefits me but my family too.
I’m so excited to have found a real solution to my weight loss dilemma that I’ve struggled with for years. Most important to me was my health concerns. After 10 days on the medical hCG program, I was able to get off my blood pressure medication. I can honestly say I never had food cravings or felt hungry. My energy level was unbelievable. The new spring in my step was obvious to others. I’ve really been blessed to become aquainted with Dr. Barreto and her amazing “cheerleader” Danika!! I’m here to stay- as all women need this kind of support to be healthy, slim, and happy. Now my goal is to get my family on board to consider how important it is to take proper care of self. I’ve lost 20 pounds and 5 inches around my waist!! It really has changed my life! Thanks to you all!!!
I have lost 60 lbs and gone down 5 dress sizes. It has been a wonderful change for me and I feel much healthier and more energetic. I get tons of compliments and some people say they do not recognize me.
I was skeptical at first when I was told I would be eating only 500 calories a day, but to my surprise I was never hungry while on medical hCG. I feel so energized and reborn. I’m a completely different person inside and out. The best part was attending my 20 year high school reunion and being told that I look as good as I did 20 years ago. What a great feeling! The medical hCG program really worked and it was so easy to follow, the pounds and inches literally just melted off! I love medical hCG weight loss!!
I started the diet in October 2009 when I was 15 years old. I lost 55lbs in about 4 or 5 months. The other kids that I go to school with couldn’t believe how much weight I was losing and how fast it was coming off. The medical hCG program was easy for me to follow and way more simple then all the other diets I have tried. What really helped me was how the medical hCG program literally cut my hunger in half! Right now I am going to go back on the hCG medication because I still have some unfinished business to take care of! Doing this diet has taught me a lot about the correct way to eat.
Dr. Barreto’s weight loss program has enhanced my life far beyond expectations. With her professional knowledge, positive attitude and caring bedside manner, I have been able to lose 85 pounds. With Dr. Barreto’s continued support, I plan to lose another 50 pounds. Five of my friends were so impressed with my positive results that they too became patients of Dr. Barreto’s and combined, the six of us have lost more than 275 pounds. I am now able to move more freely, exercise on a regular basis and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Barreto and her weight loss program.
I feel great!!! My weight is now under control and while on the maintenance diet I am still continuing to lose. I am now down from 242 to 178.5! My blood pressure is running 102/68, and for the first time in my life I am now coming off of medication instead of being put on more medication. I have been taken off metformin and protonix. Without struggling I am eating about 1200-1400 calories a day. I can finally say that I am eating to live instead of living to eat. Finally, I learned the proper way to eat. Thank you Dr. Barreto!!
Medical hCG changed my life! I have had one health problem after another. Two total knee replacements, 2 heel surgeries, breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart problems- end result; pace maker. At one point I was on over 22 medications and now I am down to only 7. I feel wonderful and have energy to do things that I love. It used to be very difficult cleaning house as I would be out of breath, along with swollen knees and just feeling 'all over' exhausted.
On January 12, 2010 I was at the lowest point in my life. I was seeing the cardiologist regularly when I was diagnosed with R.A. The thought of being confined to a wheel chair or possibly dying from a stroke or heart attack terrified me. I had tried seeing a dietitian but I soon found that the small weight loss would just stop and come to another dead end. In January I saw Dr. Barreto, my primary physician. She suggested medically prescibed hCG and we discussed how it would work. She assured me that it would help me get the weight off. Prior to seeing Dr. Barreto, even my cardiologist said that I had to get the weight off!
For me it was…..”Okay”…..”How?” and that was why I made the appointment with Dr. Barreto. Anyways, I started the hCG shots and came in for a follow-up a couple weeks later and could not believe that the weight was truly coming off! I stuck to the diet very strictly. So, here I am today - November 4, 2010 and I have come down from a size 32 down to size 10, and a 4X to a SMALL size top. I still cannot believe that I have accomplished the weight loss. I committed myself to lose the weight and I DID!!! I feel GREAT at last!! Now I am about to embark on the next level of my weight loss and that is maintenance. I must admit it is a little scary but when I look at my before photo, I say to myself “I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THAT LIFESTYLE AGAIN…EVER!”
Dr. Barreto and her wonderful staff have truly saved my life and have given me a new life to restart with. I thank you and love you all!!
I have lost 63 pounds in the last 10 months and have been able to keep it off. I am more conscientious of what I eat but don’t have to deprive myself either. I went from a women’s size 18 to a size 10.
I am thrilled to look better but I am more ecstatic about how great I feel. I can run and play with my 3 small children. I have eliminated all my lower back pain. I am so excited about my new lifestyle!
I actually reached an amazing 100 pound loss point!! I have maintained that point and feel so much better! I started the diet in January 2010, doing the oral drops method for four rounds (not all continuous). When I first heard of this diet, as a nurse, I was pretty concerned about the health issues of being on such restricted caloric intake. When I found out that Dr. Barreto was offering it as a diet option, having been a long-time patient of hers, I knew she would not promote anything she was not certain was safe for her patients. I also knew that the excess weight I carried around was also a great health risk. The fact that Dr. Barreto monitors her patients’ diet progress, including lab work, helped too. I have a cardiologist that I have seen annually for the last few years, and he was very positive in his support of me doing the medical hCG program, as long as I did it correctly.
I was really amazed at how easy the diet was for me. I am fortunate that I like most of the food choices, because they are definitely limited. I also found out, as a working dieter, I had to plan ahead and prepare foods in advance, so I would have choices from the allowed foods always at hand. This really helps if you go visiting, etc, too. What really amazed me was how satisfied I was – I did not feel hungry on this diet. To do it correctly, it helped to have an understanding of what the diet does and how it works. There is such a delicate balance between the caloric intake & reaching positive results. What amazed me was that is a diet in which you somewhat restrict your exercise! With all the weight loss, however, I surprisingly did not have the loose saggy skin I was afraid would result. Walking is great exercise for this diet. Now while I am in between hCG rounds, I am trying to do some toning. I have learned that you really don’t do this as an off and on diet. As you finish the hCG and transition back to more foods, you have to see it as a real change in your total way of eating. It is all a process, and is where the real work comes in!!
My 2010 Summer - My short 5’5 frame was pushing 240 lbs!! Cameras were the devil, tying my shoes was a losing proposition and I was one more chimichanga away from shopping at the big and tall stores! I was SO big last summer that when my wife took a picture of me last Labor Day, it is still printing! All levity aside, in September of 2010 I met Dr. Barreto and began the Medical hCG diet. As of Feb 2011 (5 months later), I have gone from 247 to 166 and I am still going. Dr. Barreto and her staff were AWESOME and explained the system as well as kept me on track throughout the diet. The medical hCG truly keeps you from being hungry and the diet being a “sedentary” diet means you do not have to do the stair stepper for 3 hours a day to get results. This diet will give amazing results simply by following the protocol. I would recommend Dr. Barreto and her medical hCG program to anyone with the will to lose weight!
I'm so glad I tried the medical hCG program. It changed my life and now I feel healthier and younger with lots of energy. It really works and now I know how to eat right and excercise to maintain my weight.
FDA required statement: hCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
