What Is the hCG Diet? The Facts Behind the Latest Diet Craze

It’s been on the covers of magazines, promoted online, and you’ve heard that some of your favorite celebrities have tried it – but what is the hCG diet?  Where do you go to find out more?  In this book, you’ll learn all you need to know about the hCG diet.

We’ll start with the basics and continue with how you can maintain the success you’ve experienced.  You’ll go from a novice to an expert as you decide if this diet is right for you and what you need to do to get started.

Let’s start at the very beginning and look at what hCG stands for, what it is, and what this diet plan is really all about.

What Is hCG? 

hCG is actually a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin.  With a name like that, it’s no wonder it’s been shortened to hCG.  This is a hormone that actually gets produced in high levels during pregnancy.

This hormone is produced by the placenta in a female’s body.  Once it starts being produced, it takes over the metabolism of the pregnant woman.  It tends to be found in high levels in early pregnancy and lower levels as the pregnancy develops.

You may be thinking, “But women gain a whole lot of weight during pregnancy.  How can this work to lose weight?”  In actuality, hCG doesn’t cause anyone to gain weight.  Instead, it helps you body to use stored fat as energy. 

Burning the Right Type of Fat

When you think about losing weight, you usually think that getting fat off of your body is the most important thing.  But there’s more than one type of fat – and your body needs to keep some types of fat in order to be healthy.

Some fat is in your body as a protection against shock and injury.  It helps to protect and cushion your joints and vital organs.  You want to leave this fat alone – it has an important job to do.  In fact, if you have too little fat it can be detrimental to your health.

Then there’s fat that helps you keep up with your body’s dietary needs.  When you eat more calories than you need, your body will store the extra as fat.  This is really important if you have a day (or a few days) when you can’t get enough calories.

You need to have some fat storage for energy reserve.  The problem is that many people have so much fat stored that it becomes unhealthy.  When you have too much fat, the effects can be detrimental.

Excess fat can become wrapped around your internal organs.  This is like having too much oil buildup in your car.  It slows down the system making it inefficient.  It can also alter your metabolism and cause you to slow down the rate at which you burn calories.

Having too many extra pounds around your middle can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.  All that fat has to have a blood supply and it’s taxing to your heart to circulate the blood through extra tissues.

Fat can also become deposited on your arteries and put your at higher risk for a heart attack.  A link has also been found between obesity and cancer.  Increased unhealthy fat can actually cause your cells to grow in abnormal ways.

When it comes to dieting, you want to burn this type of fat – the fat found in your internal organs and especially the fat that settles in your midsection.  The hCG diet targets body fat stores and helps you to burn them for your daily energy.

In a normal diet where you only restrict calories, your body will start to burn the structural fat that you need to stay healthy instead of targeting the unhealthy fat.  In fact, your body will only burn the unhealthy fat after you’ve put your body into a starvation mode or during pregnancy.

That’s where hCG comes in.  With this program, your body will use the abnormal fat as its first source for calorie burning.  Instead of attacking the fat that keeps you healthy, you’ll be targeting the fat that’s harming you.

 hCG Releases Fat Stores

Adding hCG to your diet program will help to boost your fat burning powers.  The hormone actually causes your body to use stored fat deposits as energy.  What that means for you is that you can shed pounds quickly.

You’ll be eating a low calorie diet (we’ll get into the specifics in Chapter 2), but instead of thinking it’s starving, your body will burn fat.  And you won’t even feel hungry because you’ll have plenty of energy from the stored fat. 

Where Does hCG Come From? 

Now that you know what hCG is, you’re probably wondering how you can add it to your body.  If people produce this during pregnancy, is it possible to take it when you’re not pregnant?  While hCG is a hormone produced in pregnancy, there are a few options for adding it when you’re not pregnant.

It can be taken in the form of injections or in sublingual (under the tongue) drops.  These supplements typically come from synthetic sources – not from humans or animals. When you decide to get started, you’ll need to decide between drops and injections.
