HCG - How it Works?

How Does HCG cause the weight loss?

The HCG diet is based on utilizing the amazing fat mobilizing properties of HCG. HCG is an abbreviation for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. This is a hormone naturally produced in a woman’s body when she is pregnant. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions.

HCG is the pregnancy hormone that almost completely controls metabolic functions. This hormone allows the body to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This action is especially important during times of starvation or very low calorie diets. It serves as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately. During pregnancy, this function is utilized by the woman’s body to preserve the pregnancy. For weight loss, we use only minute amounts of HCG to capitalize on this same mechanism. Using HCG in this way does NOT “mimic” pregnancy. However, it “tricks” your mind into changing its metabolism which helps burn the fat. It can be safely used by both adult men and women.

HCG plus the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCDiet) works in 3 distinct ways:

A. HCG causes your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the abnormal fat storage locations so that it’s available for use. The very low calorie diet of 500 calories a day triggers your hypothalamus to change your body’s metabolism so it continually releases the stored nutrients in the abnormal fat stored in your body. Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day, but most of these come from the stored fat. The result is your body uses these thousands of calories of fat from your abnormal fat stores and you lose weight. This is the reason why HCG users lose 1 to 2 lbs of fat or more, per day.

B. Maintains a normal basal metabolic rate. This is your resting energy needs. If one does not maintain intake of calories to equal your BMR, your body goes into conservation mode; it wants to conserve the calories stored in your body because it does not know when you’re going to feed it. HCG makes sure you don’t go into this slower metabolism mode so you continue to feel good while on the program.

C. Resets the hypothalamus to prevent future regain. After you have been on the diet for the 40 days, your body will continue to want to stay on it even after you stop using the HCG. This resetting of your hypothalamic metabolism continues for a few days to a few weeks after stopping the HCG so you can continue to lose even more weight.
