How Does the HCG Diet Plan Work?

How Does the HCG Diet Plan Work?

"So, how does the HCG diet plan work? Won't you lose weight anyway without HCG  if you just lower your calories to 500?" Questions like these are common in regards to the HCG diet. And rightly so. You should never start any weight loss program unless you have first consulted with a physician. And secondly, made sure that you understand the program fully as well as have all the facts.

The HCG diet is very different from other weight loss plans. This doesn't mean that is in not effective for weight loss. It simply means that it must be implemented in a certain way to achieve maximum results. For example, simply taking HCG itself will not result in weight loss. A certain protocol must be combined with only prescription strength hormone to see the full benefit of the diet. Without following the correct HCG protocol with prescription product, weight loss results and safety can be compromised.

By using the pregnancy hormone HCG, also known as human chorionic gonadotropin combined with a structured low calorie eating plan, often referred to as VLCD (very low calorie diet), deep fat reserves are released into the body and bloodstream for energy use if not enough calories are provided to the body. Much like in pregnancy, the hormone HCG allows the growing fetus to survive off of the mother's fat stores if she was not able to properly provide adequate nutrition. This utilization of fat for energy is often referred to as ketosis and leads to appetite suppression. HCG dieters often do not feel hungry, nor do they need more than the small amount of calories allowed on the program. This is mainly due to the fact that they are essentially living on their own stored fat reserves and burning thousands of calories per day.

Many HCG skeptics often wonder if the HCG diet is safe, and ask "why take it when you could just lose weight by doing the VLCD by itself?" HCG protects the metabolism and the body from muscle loss. Lowering calories too low without HCG is extremely dangerous, is considered starvation, and is NOT the proper HCG diet plan. Even if some weight loss is achieved, typically, these dieters find themselves extremely fatigued and disappointed when the weight is almost always regained at their metabolism's expense.
