What is HCG?
First and foremost HCG is a natural hormone produced by pregnant women to aid in the successful break down of body fat in order to aid in the nutritional support of the baby. In a world where we are more and more concerned about the safety of the products we put into our body, what could be better then a natural hormone safe for unborn babies!
How does HCG work?
The hormone works by reducing your appetite, maintaining normal energy levels, and easing the normal symptoms of eating a low calorie diet such as headaches and mood swings. The hormone does this by allowing your body to more efficiently process the fat stores already in your body. Taken in proper dosages this hormone will make not only weight loss easy, but fat loss as well! And... you'll keep it off.
HCG reduces feelings of hunger. This allows you to eat very little comfortably. Why? It is believed the presence of HCG in the bloodstream takes the appetite away.
HCG is a pro-hormone which helps your body make more hormones. Since hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reason for weight gain, whether it's your thyroid, or menopause (or andropause), this hormone offers HELP!
HCG actually reboots your metabolism so you can lose the weight and keep the weight off without exercising.
HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle0breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.
What is involved in the HCG diet?
There are two key components of the HCG diet: One is limiting your intake to 500 calories a day. The eating regimen emphasizes protein from lean meats, fish and poultry, and calls for low amounts of carbohydrates or milk and modest amounts of vegetables and fruits. The other component is injecting HCG, typically into your abdomen and lipotropin injections that help trigger a fat-burning process in your body. This is extremely EASY and painless.
