HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone naturally produced in the human body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is often referred to as the pregnancy hormone, but during pregnancy the levels double every two days. This hormone allows the body to metabolize stored fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This acts as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss, we use only a very small amount of HCG to capitalize on this same mechanism. Using HCG in this way does not mimic pregnancy; in fact, it can be safely used by both men and women.

The FDA approval for HCG use is for an extremely high dose and is given in a muscular injection which has significant risks. Most physicians use 35 units versus 5,000 units in a safer delivery form.

HGC is believed by some doctors to be about 80% effective in most patients but must be used in conjunction with a diet given to you by the injecting doctor. Most doctors weight-loss plans feature a rotating diet of 600 to 800 calories a day for two weeks followed by a week of 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day with protein calories not counting towards your daily total. This diet is high in protein and stresses that patients partake in minimal amounts of carbohydrates, starches and fatty foods and liquids, especially alcohol.

Patients are discouraged from consuming excess amounts of milk because of its estrone content, bananas because of an enzyme that prevents the body from losing fat, high-calorie fruits like raisins, grapes and figs and foods with high oil content like olives and avocados. Patients are also advised to stay completely away from sugary liquids like sweet tea and soft drinks.

HCG allows your body to reverse the effect that has kept you from losing the weight you’ve always wanted to lose. It is normal for the body to want to store and lock excess fat, and your body has a built in tendency to try to keep your present weight and prevent drastic changes. This is one reason why starvation dieting does not work, you tend to lose muscle mass and the not the fat that you really want to lose. Increasing HCG levels allows the body to target your locked fat reserve, release energy and lose weight at a more rapid pace.
