HCG Injections for Weight Loss 2019

HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is the crucial component in the revolutionary hCG diet. The hormone is ingested daily while following a strict dietary protocol. You can choose to take hCG either sublingually in drop form, capsules/caplets, or via injections.


What is HCG?


During pregnancy, the developing placenta secretes hCG into the mother’s bloodstream. The hCG hormone is believed to encourage the mother’s body to use its fat reserves to nourish the fetus so she can give birth to a healthy, full-term weight infant. During the 1950s, leading endocrinologist A.T.W. Simeons became fascinated with pregnant women in India who despite being malnourished gave birth to full birthweight babies. Through extensive research, he discovered that providing hCG to non-pregnant individuals worked much the same way. The hCG spurred their bodies to burn unwanted fat while maintaining muscle mass.


HCG and Men


HCG is known as a pregnancy hormone. However, insignificant amounts of hCG are naturally produced in the male testicles. Within men, the hCG acts as a luteinizing hormone (LH) to stimulate the Leydig cells within the testicles so they produce testosterone. The LH also helps the testicles manufacture sperm within the seminiferous tubules. Physicians often use hCG to treat male fertility issues by encouraging healthy sperm production. Bodybuilders who use anabolic steroids to increase muscle mass also try to balance their hormones using hCG and prevent testicular shrinkage which is a common side effect of steroid use.


HCG Production in Women and Men


In non-pregnant women and men, hCG is produced in exceedingly insignificant amounts within the ovaries and testicles. If a physician detects a spike in a person’s hCG levels, then it could be an indication of certain types of tumors or cancers.  However, when hCG is administered as a part of the hCG diet plan the increase is perfectly natural and safe.


HCG Injection Description


HCG injections are a common way to administer the hormone while dieting. With Nu Image Medical you can discuss your unique needs with a physician to determine if hCG injections are right for you. Typically, when using injections, you will self-administer one injection per day at a dosage of 200 iu/day. However, your Nu Image Medical professional will work with you to outline a daily dosage.


How the HCG Injection Works


When hCG is used in non-pregnant individuals it works in much the same fashion. The hormone encourages the body to pull from its fat reserves for energy while maintaining muscle mass. HCG combined with a low-calorie diet allows you to lose a great deal of weight quickly and keep it off. Of course, reducing your caloric intake will result in some weight loss but often the body pulls from the muscles instead of just the fat reserves. This means you lose muscle before you lose fat. However, with hCG your muscle mass is maintained, you feel energized, and only your fat reserves are depleted.


The HCG Diet Injection Protocol for Weight Loss


If you want to undertake the hCG diet and experience dramatic weight loss of up to one to two pounds per day, then you will need to choose the type of hCG you wish to take each day. If you opt to use injections then a Nu Image Medical professional will set a dosage amount, create an hCG prescription.  and provide you with injection information so you can successfully start dieting. On the hCG diet, you will use a single hormone injection each day while maintaining either a 500 or 800 per day caloric intake. Your caloric intake is made up of a stringent list of vegetables, proteins, and fruits.


How Does the HCG Diet Work?


When hCG is administered in combination with a low-calorie diet the hormone encourages the body to pull from its fat reserves to maintain energy without depleting your muscle mass. This means that stubborn fat in your abdomen, hips, and thighs start to noticeably melt away. Your weight will begin to drop at a rate of one to two pounds per day.  


Understanding the Phases of the HCG Diet


There are three main phases of the hCG diet plan. However, you will only be using hCG injections during the first two phases.


Phase One


Phase 1, also known as the ‘Loading or Binge Phase’, lasts for 48 to 72 hours. At this time, you will start to administer the hCG injections at a rate of one per day. It takes the hCG three days to properly enter your system to prepare your body for the low-calorie Phase 2 segment of the diet. You will normally inject the hCG at about the same time each morning. During Phase 1, you can consume as many calories as possible. The added calories prepare your body and help the hCG circulate throughout your system. This phase also helps your body avoid feeling starved by increasing your liver enzymes and allowing the hCG to take effect.


Here are a few reasons why Phase 1 is crucial to your weight loss success:

  • Prevents your body from entering starvation mode when you start Phase 2

  • Prepares your body and brain for the upcoming lack of calories

  • Reduces cravings after you embark on the low-calorie regime.

  • Pushes your liver to release beneficial enzymes.

  • Restores any missing fat reserves that have been depleted during previous diet attempts.

Phase 2


Phase 2 is the low-calorie segment of the diet. At this point you lower your daily caloric consumption to either 500 or 800 calories per day while administering the hCG injections once per day. You will typically start losing from one to two pounds per day during this phase. At this point, you also abstain from exercising.

Phase 3


Phase 3 is often called the ‘Maintenance Phase’. At this point, you have lost a considerable amount of weight and it is time to cease using the hCG injections and slowly increase your caloric intake. You must give your body and metabolism time to adjust to the added calories, so you do not start gaining the pounds back. Ideally, the hCG will have reset your metabolism.


The Benefits of HCG Injections


The main benefit of using hCG injections is that they are a quick and efficient way to administer the hormone directly into your system.


Here are the main reasons to use hCG while dieting:


  • Muscle Preservation: The hCG circulating in your system ensures that your body pulls from fat reserves for energy instead of muscle mass. This means you will lose stubborn fat while still maintaining your muscle definition.

  • Metabolism: HCG enhances your metabolism by encouraging your body to burn its fat reserves.

  • Cravings: When used daily, the hormone significantly reduces or eliminates cravings.
