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 throughout pregnancy. Although HCG is associated with pregnancy, both men and women can safely use it to help get their weight under control.
hCG is a very safe, all natural human hormone.
How much weight will I lose with the hCG diet?
Most hCG dieters report a loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day. Factors that guarantee faster weight loss include increasing vegetable intake and mixing salad with each meal. Fiber intake is extremely important, as is water intake.
How does it work?
When HCG is taken, the body is able to tap into it’s stored fat and utilize it. When combined with a calorie restriction diet, the person is subsisting more on their stored fat than on what they are eating. On average they are burning 3,500 – 4,000 calories of stored fat daily which amounts to losing 1-2 pounds every day!
Many people want to know if they can be comfortable on a calorie restriction diet of 500 calories per day. One of the miracles of hCG is that a person can feel comfortable eating only 500 calories per day while taking the hCG supplement. The appetite is suppressed and most patients feel as if they are overeating on only 500 calories a day. Without hCG a 500 calorie a day diet isn’t healthy or recommended.
What Can I Expect?
You can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per day. A person on the oral HCG diet can expect to eat 500 calories a day of protein, fruits and vegetables. Light exercise is acceptable; heavy exercise is not recommended. A brisk walk is normally the most you should attempt. Maintenance after the diet is imperative as with any other weight loss plan. The hCG Diet is considered one of the fastest and safest ways to lose weight and keep it off.
