HCG Weight Loss Programs

What are HCG Weight Loss Programs?

HCG weight loss programs or diets are weight reduction programs which use Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), a naturally occurring hormone, combined with dietary changes to promote weight loss.

Why Should I Consider HCG Weight Loss Programs?

HCG weight loss programs may be for you if you:
  • Want to lose weight fast
  • Want to diet without feeling hungry
  • Don't want to feel anxious, grumpy, or irritable while dieting
  • Want to reshape your body
  • Have excess deposits of fat in the abdomen
  • Need help controlling food cravings
  • Want to diet without feeling deprived
  • Feel tired and overweight
  • Have tried other weight loss programs unsuccessfully

How do HCG Weight Loss Programs Work?

HCG is administered each day while you follow a low calorie diet. HCG is a hormone which is produced during pregnancy. It helps your body to eliminate abnormal fat.

Your body contains three kinds of fat. Structural fat protects tissues and keeps your skin smooth. Normal fat is deposited all over your body. It contains energy which the body can burn if not enough calories are consumed. Abnormal fat consists of unsightly fat deposits which the body can not use well. It builds up and weight gain can occur.

HCG may help with the elimination of abnormal fat. Typically abnormal fat is not easily eliminated during other types of weight loss programs. With other weight loss programs healthy normal fat is burned first. Unhealthy fat remains. The result can be saggy skin, discouragement and fatigue. Even if weight loss is successful, the body may still not look attractive because the resistant belly fat or fat of the thighs and buttocks may persist. HCG may help you lose weight faster, permanently, and remain healthy simultaneously.

How Do You Take HCG?

HCG is taken by mouth as drops or tiny pills which dissolve under your tongue. It can also be given as injections. Discuss the different forms of HCG with your health care provider to determine which method is best for you.

What Else Do I Need to Know About HCG Weight Loss Programs?
