HCG Diet Info & What You Need To Know!
Obesity statistics are on the rise, more and more people are being diagnosed with obesity every day. As these numbers go up so does the need for a healthy, natural way to lose weight – fast. What could be more natural than a supplement that comes from the human body? A supplement so natural that every one of us has been exposed to it! What is this supplement you ask? Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), and this hormone can be taken in several forms; injections, drops, or pellets.
The History Behind This Diet
Dr. A.T.W Simeons a British physician, devoted many years of his life to doing research in the area of obesity and weight loss. It was during these years he determined that the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin with a very low calorie diet, of 500 calories or less brought on successful weight loss without all the unpleasant symptoms so commonly associated with low calorie diets, such as hunger. In more recently years Dr. Sheri L. Emma explained after conducting numerous double blind studies that while the low calorie diet alone would indeed contribute to great weight loss, it was not so efficient in reducing fat, maintaining proper musculature, and increasing metabolic rate.
Everyone here wants to lose weight, to be healthy and happy in their body. The only way to do this successfully is to lose fat while maintaining muscle!
First and foremost HCG is a natural hormone produced by pregnant women to aid in the successful break down of body fat in order to aid in the nutritional support of the baby. In a world where we are more and more concerned about the safety of the products we put into our body, what could be better than a natural hormone safe for unborn babies!
The hormone works by reducing your appetite, maintaining normal energy levels, and easing the normal symptoms of eating a low calorie diet such as headaches, and mood swings. The hormone does this by allowing your body to more efficiently process the fat stores already in your body. Taken in proper dosages this hormone will make not only weight loss easy, but fat loss as well! AND…you’ll keep it off.
The most effective HCG protocols, are multi-phase protocols, starting with an optional cleanse, a mandatory loading phase one, phase 2 the longest phase and most important, phase 3 and 4 in which you taper off the hormone and re-acclimatize your body to a less restrictive higher calorie diet. Successful use of this particular protocol not only aids in weight loss and fat loss, but it also alters your metabolism in such a way as to maintain the weight loss long term.
The use of HCG today has several effective methods each fairly straightforward and pain free. After your shipment of the hormone arrives, you’ll want to follow the manufacturer’s instructions as to how to properly mix and use the product, we’ll discuss this shortly. Then for injections you’ll be using a common insulin needle and syringe to carefully inject the proper dosage of once daily into a layer of body fat, most commonly belly fat. In the case of pellets and drops you’ll want to ensure that you have set aside the needed time to allow your body to properly absorb enough HCG to effectively stave off your hunger. With drop and pellets you’ll find that it is important to do this twice a day to maintain the desired results throughout the day.
Along with the use of the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone, you’ll also need to maintain a very low calorie diet, of 500 calories or less. By eliminating fat entirely from your diet you’ll find that you experience the most weight loss success. This will force your body to absorb, breakdown, and use the fat that is already in your body, no matter which method you use.
Injections are probably the most effective way for the human body to absorb HCG, however, there are so many alternatives available that is can be very difficult to sort through what is good information and what is not. The hormone comes in multiple forms, and it is important to ensure that you are buying the proper product for your needs. When starting on the HCG injection protocol, it’s imperative to ensure that you are purchasing a dry product, the supplies needed to properly reconstitute the liquid hormone, and that you are getting an authentic real HCG and not a homeopathic substitute. So, where do you buy your injections? How will it arrive and will it require a prescription to get? Find out right here!
These drops, are a liquid form of the hormone that you absorb sublingually, or under the tongue. These drops are the perfect alternative for those who have a weight loss goal that would benefit from the protocol but are uncomfortable with giving themselves injections. These drops are not to be confused with HCG drops that are available over the counter, only the true HCG should be used when doing this protocol. Making sure that you buy the proper product can be a daunting task, and knowing that you’re doing things right is ever so important. We’ve covered this topic in great depth on this page.
