The Facts about Oral HCG 540
HCG has been one of the biggest breakthroughs in weight loss supplements in the recent years, but despite a great deal of favorable publicity in the press, there are still a large number of people who have no idea exactly what the HCG entails and what HCG can do for them.
HCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy and its full name is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. This important hormone allows the growing fetus to receive the optimum amount of nutrients, no matter what level of nutrition the mother is consuming during the pregnancy.
All the way through a pregnancy, HCG enable the fetus to use mother’s fat stores as an energy supply, which is why a pregnant woman can spend the early months of her pregnancy eating virtually nothing thanks to the ravages of morning sickness, yet still produce a perfectly healthy baby after nine months.
But although HCG is a naturally produced hormone, it was not until the 1950s that the weight loss benefits of HCG were first discovered by Dr. A Simeons. Whilst studying the effects of small doses of HCG given to overweight patients of both sexes, Dr. Simeons made the exciting breakthrough discovery that taking HCG caused weight loss from the hips, stomach, thighs and buttocks, plus it also suppressed the appetite. Through further work on the dietary effects of HCG, Dr. Simeons eventually developed the HCG diet and today, millions of people take HCG as part of a successful weight loss program.
HCG is commonly used as an effective treatment for morbid obesity, but the HCG diet can also be used by anyone wishing to lose a few extra pounds from problem areas of their body. Indeed, as many happy slim people now know, the HCG diet really does work.
Taking HCG during the HCG diet allows the body to break down its stores of fat, converting them into energy, but although this is an extremely effective method of losing weight, it works best when combined with a very restricted calorie diet.
Whilst on the HCG diet, users are only allowed to consume a maximum of 500 calories per day. However, because their body is tapping into the energy supply from stored fat reserves, they are actually burning more than 3000 calories per day. So unlike regular diets with restricted calorie intake, the HCG dieter actually feels fine whilst eating very little, and in most cases, they are likely to feel very energetic!
Some of the major disadvantages of regular low calorie diets include biting hunger pangs, persistent headaches, lethargy, insomnia, fatigue, and problems thinking clearly, all of which is due to the body suffering from a state of semi starvation. All of these unpleasant symptoms are avoided by those following the HCG diet. In fact most HCG dieters enjoy no hunger pangs, sleep soundly, and have more energy than they ever had before starting the HCG diet!
The HCG diet is fairly strict and must be adhered to in order to achieve maximum weight loss during the dieting period, but as long as you refrain from cheating on your calorie intake and you follow the HCG diet protocol closely, you can expect to lose between 1 and 2 pounds per day. A healthy HCG daily diet includes protein, vegetables, and fruit. It is also recommended that HCG dieters spend at least twenty minutes per day doing some kind of gentle exercise, for example brisk walking, yoga, or swimming.
Oral HCG comes in the form of drops, which are taken under the tongue, three times per day. The HCG diet protocol can be followed for 26 days or 40 days, and if necessary, more than one cycle can be used, although a maintenance period must be observed between successive HCG cycles.
The HCG diet is highly recommended by doctors because it is a safe and effective way to lose weight quickly, but long term weight loss can only be achieved by continuing to stick to a healthy eating plan in the post-diet phase. However, because the HCG diet is so effective at changing the way you view food, most HCG dieters have no problem continuing to eat healthily and maintaining their new svelte figures long after the HCG diet has been successfully completed.
