THE HCG DIET - Lose up to 20 lbs. in 21 days!

So, you've searched the earth high and low trying to find that miracle diet fix but have had zero luck?  Cheer up, buttercup! There is one weight loss solution designed to zap fat at the astounding speed of up to one pound per day!  (Now, how’s that for a miracle?)

Allow us to introduce you to the HCG Diet!

Tuscan Sun Spa & Salon proudly offers Dr. Simeon’s HCG Diet plan, a monitored diet program combined with HCG injections that helps you lose weight . . . FAST!  But just what in the name of Dr. Simeon is HCG?  And who in the world is Dr. Simeon?

About HCG & Dr. Simeon

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), a hormone present in high quantities during the earliest stages of pregnancy, is at the core of the HCG Diet.  But no worries, it’s safe for men, too!  In fact, men naturally produce this hormone in their bodies as a way to stimulate the fertilization process.  

As for Dr. Simeon?

While working in Rome during the 1950s, renown British physician Dr. A.T.W. Simeon accidentally discovered that patients who were treated with HCG lost their appetites and rapidly burned fat.  Over the course of several years, Simeon furthered his studies to develop a protocol involving a hybrid of HCG injections and a low-calorie diet that not only melts unwanted fat but prevents dieters from losing muscle, which allows for purer fat loss.  Today, patients can lose up to up to 20 lbs. in less than a month on the HCG diet, and for over eight years, Tuscan Sun Spa & Salon has been harnessing the power of HCG to transform the lives of others with an average weight loss total of 18 lbs.!



For most of her life, Kisha was svelte and in shape.  An avid athlete, her adolescent years were spent performing acrobatic routines as cheerleader and sprinter.

“I never had weight issues,” she recalls.  “But over the course of a couple of years, the combination of bad eating habits and medication caused significant and fast weight gain. To say I was embarrassed is a complete understatement.”

In February 2017, Kisha decided to take matters into her own hands and reclaim her life.

“I started my HCG journey at Tuscan Sun’s Morgantown location.  To be quite honest, I had no idea what I was in store for and I thought I may see a few results, but perhaps not a lot; after all, I had a large amount of weight to lose.  But day by day and week by week my inner skeptic was proven wrong!”

Working individually with one of Tuscan Sun’s highly trained nurses, Kisha continued to see drastic results each time she came in for a tune up.  But it wasn’t just the results that kept her motivated; it was the individual, specialized attention she received that kept her coming through the door.

“I came to the table with a lot of questions, and every one of them was answered by my nurse,” she says. “My hand was held tightly as I was guided along my journey, and I was treated with the utmost level of compassion and care.  She even managed to put up with my meltdowns and kept me in check when I had weight loss stalls.  Needless to say, I am so thankful for everything I was given throughout this experience.  And here I am—50 lbs. lighter and 20+ inches GONE!  If you’re looking for results and guidance, look no further.  Tuscan Sun & HCG WILL get you there!”

In addition to the HCG Diet, there is another surefire way to drop the weight at Tuscan Sun Spa & Salon.  Ideal Protein, a structured and supervised partial meal replacement / lifestyle management protocol, is one of the easiest ways to shed unwanted weight naturally AND keep it off for good via the means of continuing education.  But exactly how does it work?  We’re so glad you asked!

Phase 1 - Weight Loss

The first phase of Ideal Protein is meant to reset the body to burn fat and lose weight by restricting carbohydrate consumption and increasing protein intake while optimizing fat loss through ketosis (a safe and natural state in which the body mobilizes stored fat as its alternative energy source).  Dieters will remain in this state until they have reached their weight loss goal.

Phase 2 - Stabilization 

Phase two of the system is designed to reset your thinking in order to maintain a healthy weight and build healthy habits.  Weekly follow-up sessions over the course of two months or more are designed to monitor carb reintroduction, track weight loss, and serve as a source of motivation and accountability.

Phase 3 - Maintenance

Maintenance, the third and final phase of the Ideal Protein protocol, resets “possible” and helps folks to live their fullest, healthiest, best life yet!  For the first 12 months following stabilization, dieters will continue to receive education and support from their Tuscan Sun Spa & Salon weight loss coach.



Last year, Becky, a 63-year-old retired teacher, realized that she needed to make a drastic change when she began experiencing debilitating knee pain and high blood pressure, not to mention low energy and exhaustion, which was keeping her from enjoying her golden years to their fullest.  Unsure of exactly where to turn, Becky discovered the Ideal Protein protocol at Tuscan Sun Spa & Salon and, for the first time in a long while, caught a glimmer of hope.

“The day I called Tuscan, I had just come from an appointment with an orthopedic doctor, who informed me that I should have a double knee replacement. As the caregiver of  my preschool aged grandchildren, I knew this was simply out of the question, so I went straight to Tuscan, where I met my Ideal Protein coach and new friend Kristen.  Without a doubt, it was the best decision I’ve made in years!”

At the time of her consultation, Becky says that she could barely stand for more than two minutes at a time due to her knee pain.  In fact, it was this pain that restricted her to her home, keeping her from doing many of her favorite everyday activities, like going to the mall for a simple shopping trip.

“My life was becoming so limited!” she exclaims.  "I realized it was time to get a grip on things because I so desperately wanted to enjoy my life again, spend more quality time with my beautiful grandchildren, and make memories with the people I love most.”

While Ideal Protein hasn’t replaced the missing cartilage in her knees, Becky says that the 80+ lbs. she lost on the protocol has eliminated the inflammation and pain that was ruining her life, saving her from a double knee replacement and opening a door of bright and shining possibility.  

“I recently began working again as a substitute teacher, something I couldn’t have done before with all of that extra weight.  Oh!  And did I mention I have a cruise planned early this spring?  My life is so much better being lighter on my feet and totally pain free!  If anyone out there is considering trying Ideal Protein, I suggest you make the call, have a free consultation, and explore a brand-new world of possibilities with Tuscan Sun!”
