| With obesity rates rising across the world, especially in the US, many people are looking at ways to lose weight and reduce their risk for obesity related disease. One very popular diet method that is gaining increasing popularity as a weight loss tool is a 60- year of weigh loss diet approach developed by a doctor called the HCG Diet . |
HCG and Weight Loss
Human chorionic gonadotropin or human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) is a naturally occurring hormone produced during pregnancy. HCG is also produced in the pituitary gland of males and females of all ages.
In the 1950's, a British physician Albert Simeons proposed that a HCG could help to bring about weight loss. Simeons believed that an injection of HCG could allow people lose survive on 500 calories a day, burn stored fat, with little hunger and a reduce appetite. Dr. Simeons reported in the medical journal the Lancet that patients who followed the HCG Diet for 43 days lost 20 to 30 pounds, and that 70% of them maintained their weight loss after going off the diet. Dr. Simeons credited the hormone with making fat available for metabolism and enabling his patients to remain on the low-calorie diet without feeling weak, dizzy or excessively hungry.
How the HCG Diet Works
Under the direction of a licensed physician , patients following the HCG Diet will receive an HCG injection daily, administered into the fatty tissue (belly area preferred).
Each round of HCG treatment with on the HCG Diet protocol lasts a minimum of 26 days, and 23 of those days require a daily HCG injection. HCG Treatment may last as long as 43 days (with 40 HCG injections), unless a patient loses 34 to 40 pounds (15 to 18 kilograms) before the allotted time has passed. Patients don’t receive HCG injections for the last three days of any HCG Diet treatment period so that the HCG can cycle completely out of their bodies before they resume a normal diet. (It also takes about three days for HCG’s weight loss effects to “kick in”).
In addition to receiving HCG injection , dieters are instructed to cut their daily intake of calories to 500 a day, but not until after the third HCG injection. Once the HCG is active in a dieter’s body, its release of long-stored fat provides the body with the calories it needs to burn to get through a day (a day, it should be noted, without much exercise). As long as fat deposits are being released for use, the 500 daily calories being ingested is supposed to be enough to sustain the dieter without the crazy hunger pangs one would normally experience on a 500-calorie diet. Once a dieter drops the excess weight, the HCG treatment stops, because HCG only affects stored fat. Once the fat is used up, the body will quickly reject a self-imposed limit of 500 total daily calories.
