What is HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)?
HCG is a natural hormone that is produced in both men and women and is produced in large amounts during pregnancy. In pregnant women, HCG stimulates the hypothalamus and helps the body metabolize fat and use it for energy for the baby and the mother. HCG is used in the same manner for medical weight loss, it is injected into the body and allows the body to use abnormal fat for energy.
Three different kinds of fat can be found in the body: structural fat, normal fat, and abnormal fat. Structural fat and normal fat are necessary to the body and do not contribute to obesity. Abnormal fat is excess fat that accumulates in various parts of the body as a result of an unhealthy diet or lifestyle. The body cannot normally access abnormal fat, which is why it is difficult to reduce through exercise or dieting. The HCG hormone releases these abnormal fat deposits and allows the body to use them as fuel. HCG is safe for both men and women, as it occurs naturally in both genders.
How is HCG used for weight loss?
HCG is used for medical weight loss through a combination of daily HCG injections of daily dosage of HCG pills and a 500 to 800 calorie diet. While participating in an HCG medical weight loss plan, your 500 calorie diet should consist of a regulated quantity of meat, fish, veal, fruits, and vegetables and unlimited coffee, tea, and water.
Even though you consume a very low amount of calories while participating in an HCG medical weight loss plan, your metabolism will not slow down or cause your body to store fat as it would with other diets that involve very low-calorie consumption. Patients may experience some mild hunger during the first few days of the 500 to 800 calorie diet, and by the second week, most patients will feel satisfied with the very low-calorie diet. On average, most patients tend to burn one pound a day while participating in an HCG medical weight loss plan. Results may vary from patient to patient depending on gender and pre-existing health.
