What You'll Get
Losing weight is a challenge almost as difficult as reading an entire dictionary or climbing a tree that’s covered in canola oil. Take an expert approach to tackling the task of slimming down with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a consultation and supplies for a 40-day HCG weight-loss program (a $199 value) at Phipps Chiropractic in Richardson.
Under the guidance of Dr. David Phipps and his team of hearty healers, Phipps Chiropractic's HCG weight-loss treatments harness the power of chemistry to banish extra tonnage and snip the strings of frivolous yo-yo diets. During the 40-day multiphase homeopathic program, slimness seekers quaff three daily doses of serum containing human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a hormone responsible for shoveling shiftless abnormal fat stores into the energy-usage incinerator. The newly freed flab makes its way to the heft, hereafter, supervised by a low-calorie, high-protein diet, with provided recipe suggestions and intake guidelines.
Groupon holders do not need to be patients of Phipps Chiropractic to undergo the HCG treatment, but the mindful medicos there recommend a consultation with primary physicians before setting out on journeys to improve wellness, unlock old wardrobe options, and set records for two-dimensional hula hooping.
The FDA states that "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."
