The HCG diet is one you might have heard of. It is said to be a rather extreme diet. It consists in daily HCG injections (human chorionic gonadotropin) and a calorie based diet. For those who do not know what HCG is, it is a hormone produced by women when they are pregnant. It is produced by the syncytiotrophoblast which gives rise to the placenta.
The first thing to consider before starting an HCG diet is that you must consult a doctor. A doctor, a specialist, will be able to tell you whether you should or should not start an HCG diet. Nutritionists say that we should eat food consisting in 1500 calories per day as an average. Meanwhile, the HCG diet will restrict you to 500 calories per day. The HCG diet must be kept for 8 weeks. If you decide to take HCG then you must decide which method you want to approach. The most efficient method is said to be through injections. You can, however, choose to take HCG through oral drops, sprays or pellets.
The FDA approved HCG as treatment for fertility issues. Keep in mind that HCG is only legal as long as a health care provider provides it for you. Over-the-counter HCG products are strictly illegal. In order for a health care provider to provide you HCG you must have a prescription from the doctor. As said before, this is the most important thing before starting an HCG diet. Starting an HCG diet without consulting a doctor will highly increase your chances to develop side effects. There are less and more severe side effects you can develop. Mostly, people only reported minor side effects and they said those side effects disappeared in a short time. These side effects are common side effects which can be developed for any medicine, such as headaches, light water retention, light headedness and irritability.
You are highly advised to monitor your progress and be supervised while you take HCG. Especially in case you develop a side effect.
The question most people seem to be interested to ask is whether HCG works or not in losing weight. The answer is yes, HCG does work for losing weight. However, people forget to ask the more important question: how does HCG help you lose weight? The truth is that the HCG diet helps you lose weight. Losing weight has nothing to do with the injections. In fact, the injections only change the way you lose weight. It is the diet that actually helps you lose weight. As the diet is low calorie based one, it is unquestionable that it will help you lose weight.
Some people are afraid of losing muscle after they start the HCG diet. You mustn’t worry as you will not be losing muscle. The catabolic state (muscle breakdown) is counteracted by the anabolic state (muscle building) created by the HCG hormone by elevating the hormone levels in the body (testosterone included).
Some people claim that the diet is hard to keep while others claim it is not hard at all. As said before, it is a rather extreme diet and an extreme diet can’t be easy to keep. However, even those who said that the HCG diet is hard to keep, claimed that they got used to it a couple of weeks later, making the diet a routine.
