Who should do the HCG DIET program?
Anyone who wants to lose excess weight and improve their health are candidates to doing the HCG DIET. It is especially helpful for those who have been trying to lose weight with exercise and dieting but are at a plateau and just can't seem to get those extra pounds off. Changing their metabolism to burn the fat does work.
Can men and women do the program?
The program works very well in both men and women. In fact, many times men will lose more weight than women. The HCG produces the same metabolic effects to burn the extra fat in both genders. Don't worry, men don't develop "man boobs" or have symptoms of pregnancy from the HCG. It just works to shrink the fat and shed the weight.
Will I have any side effects from doing the program?
Eating a very low calorie diet could potentially cause some problems within your body. Therefore, a physical exam and workup is required before doing the program. While on the program, regular monitoring by a trained professional is a requirement to ensure your safety. If properly monitored, the program is very safe and very effective.
Why not just buy HCG off the web and do the program?
You can only buy HCG with a prescription from a physician. There are many websites that state they sell HCG, but this is considered illegal without a prescription because the FDA requires adequate monitoring while on the medication. Some websites sell "homeopathic" HCG, which are simply markedly diluted products with very little active HCG ingredient present. We do not recommend anyone do the HCG DIET without proper medication and proper monitoring.
What is the hypothalamus?
The hypothalamus is a part of the diencephalon area of our brain. This is the vital part of the brain which controls all of the autonomic functions of the body, including breathing, heart beat, digestion, sleep and the complex functions of the endocrine system. One of the many functions of the endocrine system is regulation and control of your metabolism and weight.
How do I keep my goal weight once I stop using HCG?
Don't think of HCG as just a diet. The HCG Diet program helps reset your hypothalamus which controls your metabolism and your fat regulation system so your body no longer is triggered into storing unneeded fat. But do continue to be aware of the foods you take into your body; more natural, organic foods that haven’t been processed to refined flours and sugars will provide the nutrients and energy required to keep a healthy weight. If you go back to the lifestyle and eating habits that caused the weight gain in the first place, you will surely gain the weight back.
