When you first start using HCG injections or homeopathic drops as part of the comprehensive HCG program, you spend two days loading up on fatty foods. That’s Phase 1. After that, you spend the next twenty to forty days on the 500 calorie diet, which forces your body to consume its own excess fat – resulting in weight reduction of up to eighty pounds (though forty is more realistic for most people – and still pretty impressive!) That is Phase 2.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is hormone (glycoprotein) that is produced in the body. One of its functions is to monitor progesterone production during pregnancy so HCG levels rise during pregnancy. Due to this connection to pregnancy HCG levels are often used as an early indicator of pregnancy.
The HCG injection (when used for weight loss) is supposed to elevate levels of HCG in the body and aid in weight loss. This philosophy was introduced by an endocrinologist named Dr. Simeons over 50 years ago. Dr. Simeons’ program required daily mic injection kits. It also required a strict diet plan. This accompanying diet plan was severely calorie limited as well as limiting which foods were approved for use during the diet. Exercise was discouraged while on the VLCD.
The HCG diet has become amazingly popular ever since HCG drops were created a few years ago. Its popularity is only aided by the fact that you can literally see the scales dropping basically every day on the program. In addition, “HCGers” love the lack of hunger and the fact that they aren’t required to exercise.
HCG causes your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available for use. You can consume as little as 500- calories a day and still feel fine because your hypothalamus is continually releasing 1500 to 4000 calories of fat stored in your body. The result is that your body is burning thousands of calories of fat from your body each day.
No. Alcohol is not allowed during Phase 2 while you are taking the HCG drops. however you can drink in moderation during Phase 3 so long as you are careful to avoid drinks containing sugars.
Some people may prefer injectable HCG, while others may prefer the convenience of oral HCG drops. Carefully consider how much you can spend on your HCG treatment and how easily you will be able to incorporate the HCG weight loss cure into your lifestyle. Nowadays, you have the good fortune to have a choice in your method of HCG treatment!
