What is hCG?

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?

hcg rapid weight loss

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.  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.

Facts About hCG For Weight Loss

 

What preparations are required for hCG diet shots?

hcg rapid weight loss

Prior to treatment, your physician or practitioner will request blood tests and perform a general health assessment.  For individual injections, generally no preparations are required.  If your physician has you self-injecting, specific sterilizing processes are involved and certain steps can be taken to reduce the discomfort of injections here:

Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day with hCG shots?

hcg rapid weight loss

hCG weight loss studies have shown that weight lost following the Simeons protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle.  In doing so, the weight lost comes directly from unhealthy fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body.  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.  

hCG Diet Tips to Maximize Your Weight Loss

 

500 calorie diet

Why the 500 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.  While you are only consuming 500 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body.  Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day.  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.

Is the use of hCG injections for weight loss legal?

hcg for weight loss

A medical doctor may prefer not to use hCG for weight loss due to the FDA's lack of recommendation, however he is legally able to do so in the US.  It is advised that you check your country's laws to be certain, however, for most countries, importing hCG diet shots or having pre-filled hCG syringes shipped via mail are considered safe and perfectly legal.  If importing hCG from abroad, be sure to check your local laws and follow whatever restrictions are called for.

 

Is it legal to order hCG from overseas pharmacies?

 

While it is recommended to check for amendments to the importation guidelines, as of January 2007, it is still legal to import hCG for personal use.  An individual supply of no more than 3 months is generally acceptable for meeting the "personal use" standard.  Resale of imported pharmaceuticals is a federal offense.

Will I be hungry on 500 calories a day?

500 calorie diet

It is common for mild hunger during the first few days, however this will pass and by the 2nd week, you will find even very tiny servings, to be completely satisfying.  This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released.  It is common that hCG dieters feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that 500 calorie limit!

Who is a right candidate for hCG Diet Shots?


The majority of men and women can use hCG injections for weight loss.  It is recommended that dieters consult a physician concerning your weight loss, along with the appropriate implementation of the hCG protocol. The physician will NOT permit hCG weight loss injections for women who are pregnant or nursing.

How about safety and side effects of hCG Diet Shots?


There are rarely side effects reported while using hCG diet shots, or oral hCG for weight loss.  When the hCG shots are used for fertility reasons, the larger amount is known to cause occasional headaches, and pregnancy symptoms.  However, the amount differences between the hCG diet protocol and hCG used for fertility purposes is significantly different in quantity.

Will I gain the weight back after the hCG diet?

After the hCG diet, not only will you have lost physical weight, former hCG Dieters also report a change for the better in appetite, and a natural course of modified eating behavior.  They also report this as being an ideal situation for easily transitioning into a healthy relationship with food.

With all of these changes and experiences, the hCG Diet is the perfect opportunity to adopt that healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight. 

Will you gain the weight back after hCG?  There is no reason you should, so long as you have replaced any former negative eating and inactive lifestyle habits with new, healthy perspectives on food and exercise.

Most post-hcg dieters find a minimum amount of daily activity is sufficient to maintaining their hCG weight loss goal. A minimum amount of exercise is recommended not only for weight maintenance, but also for the added health benefits.  Recommended activities include:  Yoga, 20 minutes of cardio, or any number of activities you may enjoy, that gets your heart moving.  With your hypothalamus, "reset" and your metabolism will reflect these differences.  and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat.
