What is the HCG diet?

Using the HCG diet alongside a specialized nutritional shift will help patients shed pounds quickly and reliably while enjoying improved levels of energy and a positive mental state. This method of dieting allows the body’s metabolism to quickly and easily burn off fat stores while ensuring you maintain your lean muscle mass. When combined with exercise, many patients find they can achieve dramatic weight loss under the care of a medical professional.

How the HCG diet works

HCG stands for “human chorionic gonadotropic hormone.” This hormone is created in the placenta during pregnancy and tells the body to increase progesterone production for fetal growth and development. When HCG and progesterone work simultaneously, they make sure the baby gets the nutrients needed.

In the HCG diet, this hormone is used to make the body believe it is pregnant and results in appetite suppressant and fat loss. You consume less while the HCG ensures the body has the nutrients it needs, causing the body to use fat as a method of obtaining calories instead. This diet requires a strict calorie intake in conjunction with HCG administered through supplements, injections, or even nasal sprays. When monitored by a professional, it is safe and effective.
