HCG Diet is not just a random diet with no basis at all. Dr. ATW Simeon, the original creator of the HCG Diet found after years and years of research and thousands of patients that combination of the HCG hormone plus the super low calorie intake can produce a rapid weight loss due to abnormal fats. He felt that doing the HCG injections can reset the hypothalamus of the brain which can make dieter loss weight when on the super low calorie diet without feeling any hunger.
HCG Diet will help you lose weight without losing your muscle because the HCG hormone will elevate other hormones in your body like the testosterone. This creates an anabolic state. The hormone will build your muscle up which counteracts the catabolic state or muscle-breakdown.
During a crash diet without HCG hormone, you will lose so much muscle and it’s not good for your body, shape and your metabolism. When your metabolism slows down that much the tendency is you will gain weight that quick. With HCG hormone in your system, you do not lose muscle but only abnormal fats. So, when you stop dieting, you won’t regain weight that quick and you won’t find it hard to build your muscle back. With HCG in your system, you’ll achieve a leaner body and with more muscles which will help you maintain your weight even after your diet is completed.
What is HCG?
HCG or Human Gonadotropin is a female hormone from the placenta of women during pregnancy. It stabilizes a woman’s metabolism during pregnancy. Dr. ATW Simeons devised a way to turn this hormone into a weight loss vehicle for those who wanted to lose weight.
Does HCG Diet Work for Weight Loss?
The answer is yes! But it’s not the hormone that makes you lose weight. It’s the diet. The hormone, however, changes how your body loses weight. HCG Diet is even safe for men. So, don’t worry. You’ll be fine and you’ll be dropping pounds like crazy when you follow the diet properly.
