The hCG weight loss program involves both weight loss and detoxification. hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a glycoprotein found naturally in the body and has been shown to help metabolize fats and boots the body’s metabolic rate, while promoting an increased blood circulation. Weight loss is safe and comfortable while the use of hCG is uniquely able to trigger the release of visceral fat deposits and makes them available to be used as fuel. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) not only increases the body’s metabolism and promotes weight loss but it also targets the stored fat and spares lean muscle mass.
Benefits of hCG for weight loss:
- Fat burning and muscle sparing
- Rapid weight-loss compared to other diets
- Redistributes fat
- Increases metabolism
- Decreased appetite
- Maintains weight loss
- No more yo-yo dieting frustrations
- Targets visceral fat and problem areasThe truth about fat
There are mainly two different types of fat in the human body, called visceral and subcutaneous fat. Both of these fats are different and one has more ill effects than the other.
Visceral Fat: This type of fat is mostly found around organs in the abdominal area. This is the type associated with more health concerns since the fat is near vital organs and is more acutely embedded in the tissues. Visceral fat is known to cause diabetes by boosting insulin resistance and leads to health risks such as heart disease, strokes, hypertension etc.
Subcutaneous Fat: This type of fat is found under or close to the skin’s surface and pose less health risks.
hCG and Visceral fat
The use of human chorionic gonadotropin is uniquely able to trigger the release of visceral fat deposits and makes them available to be used as fuel.
How does hCG work?
The hypothalamus known as the “master gland” contains a leptin- sensitive neural network which works to regulate body weight. Leptin is the messenger between the hypothalamus and the fat stores. hCG triggers the hypothalamus to release your abnormal fat stores and makes the fat available to be used as fuel for consumption by the body. The metabolic diet protocol limits you to 500 calories per day. Keep in mind your body is utilizing the additional calories from your fat cells, the reason why there are no severe hunger cravings while on a very low calorie regimen, and the patient is able to maintain muscle mass.
Is hCG Safe?
There are no age or sex limits, and hardly any contraindications to using this weight loss program for the treatment of obesity. The amount of hCG used in this program is only a fraction of what is naturally released in pregnancy. Tolerance to the treatment is excellent, and many patients willingly submit to a second treatment. Weight loss is safe and comfortable, provided that they meticulously follow the prescribed diet. Any deviation from the protocol is apt to yield poor results. Even minor deviations may cause unwanted setbacks. Clinical complications and unfavorable results are related to unsafe modifications of the protocol.
The normal response to a very low calorie diet is to store fat and slow metabolism to ensure survival. However, when hCG is used in conjunction with a very low calorie diet, the body’s excess fat is burned as energy, ultimately consuming anywhere from 2000-3000 calories daily. This prevents our bodies from storing fat and our metabolism from slowing down during the diet.
Weight Loss Goals
The average amount of weight loss is between 5-12 kg's for the three week interval. This varies from individual, and the closer you are to your body’s ideal weight, the slower you will lose weight. Most people will have a large amount of weight loss in the beginning, and then they level off. This does not mean they stop losing weight, only that they are losing it at a slower rate. Some patients opt to do a second round of hCG, and during this time period, they can have another large drop in weight followed by a levelling off stage as well. You could potentially lose up to 15kg's in 40 days.
Duration of Treatment
Patients whose weight loss goal is 8kg's or less will require 23 days of treatment, anything more the patient will be on 40 days of treatment. The last three days after the last medication the patient will still need to continue the 500 calorie diet. This is a very essential part of the treatment, if the patient starts to eat normal as long as there is even a trace of hCG in their body they will put on weight alarmingly at the end the treatment.
The hCG Weight Loss Program is a safe and effective solution that will help you lose weight and keep it off. This natural program is an excellent option for both men and women.
