The HCG Diet is a series of injections of a glycoprotein hormone that is produced when women become pregnant. “HCG” stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and has been known to cause people to lose one pound each day that they remain on a low-calorie diet.

How Does HCG Work and What Are The Benefits?

The HCG diet benefits people whose testosterone and human growth hormone levels have decreased in the following ways:

  • The hormone stimulates the area of the brain that causes the body to effectively burn fat
  • It prevents people from losing as much muscle mass
  • It targets the excess fat that is currently stored on the body and stimulates the metabolism
  • It is safe and convenient

How Does HCG Work?

During pregnancy, the HCG hormone’s job is to ensure that both the fetus and the mother receive the required amount of nutrients and calories. After the hormone stimulates the hypothalamus, it causes chemicals to send stored fat into the bloodstream where it can be used as energy. At the same time, nutrients also enter the bloodstream that benefits the mother and the baby. This process works even when the dieter is not pregnant, so people can achieve HCG weight loss just by having this substance injected into their bodies.

Is There Scientific Proof that This Diet Works?

Dr. Sheri L. Emma has conducted extensive research on HCG weight loss, and she presented her results to the American Society of Bariatric Physicians. Her patients have reported that they do not feel as hungry after taking HCG injections. This helps them to remain on Dr. Emma’s low-calorie diets. She has also found that the only way to increase the level of HCG in the bloodstream is by giving injections. Research has shown that pills, drops and sprays are not effective.

To ensure that you obtain the HCG weight loss that you are seeking, it is imperative that you speak to a professional. Contact Doctors Best Wellness today so that you can begin losing at least a pound per day.

HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
