HCG Weight Loss Management

What is hCG?

hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by the placenta in pregnant women and almost completely controls the metabolic function through the hypothalamus throughout the pregnancy. Contrary to popular belief however, the hCG used in the Hcg diet protocols is a variation of the hCG form used for fertility treatments, and in a much smaller dose. All hCG used for medical purposes is natural, but created in laboratories from sterile cells. It is NOT extracted from women or animal urine- a common misconception.

How much weight will I lose with the hCG diet?

Most hCG dieters report a loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day. At the very least, 5 pound a day, and at the most, 3 + lbs a day. 1 lb is generally lost in the first day.

hCG weight loss studies have shown that weight lost following the Simeons protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle.

For this reason, hCG dieters report a feeling and appearance of great health and marvel at the loss of negative health risks they had as an overweight individual.

Why the 800 calorie diet – VLCD (very low calorie diet )?

HCG diet shots cause your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available for use.

The result is your body using thousands of calories of fat from your body each day, the reason hCG dieters lose 1 to 2 lbs of fat or more, per day.
