How Does HCG Diet Work?

Introduction and background

HCG is the acronym for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a substance produced by the placenta during pregnancy in large amounts. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is not a drug but rather a complex amino-peptide molecule, a naturally occurring water-based hormone that is produced by the placenta in high levels during pregnancy of the human woman. Virtually hundreds of thousands of people, men and women, have used this treatment with tremendous success for permanent and rapid results for weight loss. It resets your metabolism, or your hypothalamus, to keep the weight off permanently. Losing weight with the HCG diet has been found to be the quickest way to lose weight without sacrificing your health and metabolism. It has been shown that, with HCG diet and drops combination; many people lose a pound a day and sometimes more.

History of HCG for weight loss

HCG for weight loss was discovered by British endocrinologist, Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. Dr. Simeons studied pregnant women on a calorie-deficient diet, and “obese boys” with pituitary problems (Fröhlich’s syndrome) and successfully treated his patients with low dose HCG, claiming that both groups lost fat rather than muscle. He theorized that HCG must be programming the hypothalamus (part of the brain that deals with hormones) to do this in these patients in order to protect the developing foetus by promoting mobilization and removal of abnormal, excessive fat deposits.

 

HCG Diet – Function and mode of action

The HCG diet protocol works by telling the hypothalamus to release your stored body fat. A small amount of HCG hormone can cause your stored body fat to be released. The HCG diet is effective in both males and females. The calories you eat on the HCG diet protocol are low, typically 500 calories a day. The HCG diet plan is restrictive to prevent the fat cells from storing new fat and the new fat from being stored in the adipose tissues while you are actively on the HCG diet. Remember there are 3 primary sources of fuel for the body; Protein, Carbohydrates and Fats.
Your body will use Carbohydrates first, and then Proteins second and Fats third, when it can. By restricting your intake while on the HCG diet protocol of carbohydrates and fats, you are forcing your body to use your body’s stored fat, from your fat cells, first for energy. This adipose tissue, body fat, will be released by the HCG hormone while on the HCG diet protocol into your blood stream and fuel your body while the excess gets excreted as waste.
Normally when we cut back our calories and fat, our bodies store fat and our metabolisms slow down. This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy. When a very low calorie diet is used with HCG, the body is signalled to use the fat that is stored for energy or for elimination.

 

Does HCG diet make you hungry?

Because HCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So, even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body is able to access the energy you have stored. Some may initially feel very hungry at the start of the diet plan, but eventually most have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program. For those who need help curbing their appetite in the beginning, an appetite suppressant can be prescribed.

Conclusion

All in all, by regularly and properly using a standard HCG diet or protocol, on average, patients lose around 20-30 pounds per month. When combined with the recommended HCG drops, the HCG weight loss is rapid, comfortable, and the maintenance period after treatment runs a smoother course. The HCG diet is an appropriate approach to the treatment of obesity that also includes a behaviour modification program as well as pharmacological and dietary aspects. When properly managed, the result is rapid weight loss and improved body shape after treatment.
