HCG Diet Q & A

What is HCG and how does it work?

The HCG weight loss diet consists of a very low-calorie diet that is accompanied by treatments of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) which is a naturally produced hormone in a woman’s body when she is pregnant. HCG is given either via tablets, drops, or injections. For weight loss, only a small amount of HCG is used to capitalize on the bodies natural mechanism to mobilize fat and use it as energy. The average HCG dieter experiences can lose up to 1 pound per day.

Will my metabolism slow down if I’m on a very low-calorie diet?

Normally when we cut back our calories and eat a very low-calorie diet, our bodies tend to preserve fat and nutrient stores. When HCG is used in combination with a very low-calorie diet, the hormone will send a signal to the body to activate the calories out of the abnormal fat storage locations and use them for energy burning to fuel daily actions. The excess or abnormal fat stores are reduced and you lose weight. In fact, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day which enables you to lose weight very quickly.

What are the advantages of drops or tablets of HCG compared to the injections?

The difference between using the tablets or dops versus injection is primarily ease of use. The tablets or drops consist of no needles, no mixing, no bruising, no risk of infection, and no loss of potency in short time. The tablets or drops are a lot easier to use than the injections but some people prefer using the injections because they believe they have better absorption. Compliance is easier to achieve with the tablets or drops, making the effectiveness far higher because patients are more consistent with their dosages.
