For your safety, Dr. Rodriguez performs a thorough evaluation that includes some blood tests (a Comprehensive Metabolic Profile) and an EKG (electrocardiogram) to make sure that you are healthy enough to undergo the hCG Diet. More importantly, Dr. Rodriguez uses his special Positive Lifestyle Modification techniques to keep you from gaining the weight back when you come off the diet and resume normal healthy eating.
