What is HCG and how does it work?
HCG is a hormone naturally produced in the body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is the pregnancy hormone, but during pregnancy the levels double every two days. This hormone has a property that allows the body to mobilize fat and use it for energy for both mother and fetus, if there is ever a dire need. It is a fail-safe mechanism for weight loss, we use only a small amount and we are able to capitalize on this same mechanism.
HCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body only when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. A 'starvation state' must exist for HCG to work. For weight loss, we use a very low calorie diet over a 40 day period to trigger HCG to help rid the body of fat. This diet is included in your HCG treatment when you get started with us. An HCG diet plan is one of the fastest ways to lose weight and keep it off.
Will my metabolism slow down if I’m on a very low calorie diet?
Normally when we cut back our calories and fat, our bodies store fat and our metabolisms slow down. This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy. When a very low calorie diet is employed with HCG, the body is signaled to use the fat that is stored for energy or for elimination. That is what makes HCG such a potent tool in losing weight.
Wouldn’t I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low calorie diet, without HCG?
You can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before you lose fat. This causes your cellular metabolism to slow down, so in the long run, without HCG it would actually make gaining weight easier.
The HCG diet is very low calorie, will I get hungry?
Because HCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So, even though, you are taking in fewer calories, your body is able to access the energy you have stored. Most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program.
Is the HCG diet for men as well as women?
Yes, both men and women can get amazing results on the HCG diet plan. Although each person's results are individual and can vary, some people can lose up to a 1 pound or more a day. Try the HCG Diet and start losing weight now.
As a women, will I experience any changes in my menstrual cycle taking HCG?
Some women may experience heavier than normal periods and should not take the HCG while they are menstruating.
Why are some people calling HCG the 'HCG Cure'?
HCG is also being called the 'HCG Cure' because after taking it for weight loss, it works to re-program your body to use stored fat for energy when calories are reduced for some period of time. Or put another way, it helps you maintain, and not re-gain the weight you have lost. Many other weight loss management programs and diet plans don't help you lose weight fast and keep it off.
Does the weight loss slow down after the first month?
Often times what we see on the HCG diet is a large weight loss in the first month, then we will see a plateau. This is normal and does not mean weight loss has stopped. Usually, we still see inches being lost continuously and then we will see another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is achieved in "stair-step" fashion.
Will a special diet be provided?
We provide you with a FREE step-by-step “HCG Diet Guide” upon receipt of your HCG diet plan purchase. Our Patients are most successful when they follow a very low calorie diet. The body must use all the calories you are taking in from outside resources before it can begin to consume its fat sources. If you properly follow the HCG diet plan, results may be achieved. It is always essential to consult with your physician before beginning any treatment or weight management program.
