HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin which is a hormone associated with pregnancy. It is produced by the placenta and maximizes the functional capacity of the body’s control centers in the hypothalamus. That one center in the hypothalamus, the fat bank, controls the movement and distribution of fat throughout the body. HCG mobilizes abnormal fat and releases it as a source of energy and nutrients. Thus, when administered in low daily doses paired with calorie restriction and appropriate supplementation it creates significant fat loss and body re-contouring.
- Targets storage fat areas are hips, thighs, stomach, and buttocks.
- Five to Fifteen pounds per week of fat loss.
- Eliminates food cravings.
- Resets your metabolism.
- Well tolerated.
The HCG protocol calls for a 500 calorie per day diet. If someone were to start a 500 calorie per day diet without HCG he or she would experience hunger, cravings, feeling of misery and a loss of structural fat and muscle mass. However, a 500 calorie per day diet on HCG, a patient typically loses up to one pound of fat per day. Each pound of fat contains approximately 3500 calories. If people lose one pound of abnormal fat in one day, that makes 3500 calories available to them. This gives patients access to adequate amounts of energy because the rest of the calories are generated internally through the breakdown of fat deposits (lipolysis). Therefore, the patient is not hungry and loses weight.**Disclaimer**

HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that is causes more attractive or ‘normal’ distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie restricted diets.
