HCG Diet for Weight Loss

HCG Diet for Weight Loss - HCG Diet plan claims to help you lose 1-2 pounds per day on a strict 500 calorie diet plan. HCG is a hormone that is produced in pregnancy and used by male athletes to increase testosterone production in the testes.

Dr. Simeons made the use of HCG for weight loss popular with his manuscript “Pounds & Inches”. Where he combines its use with an extremely low calorie diet.

The diet is a low-calorie, low-fat, high protein diet.

In order to get pure HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) you have to go to a Doctor and get it through injection, but you can get HCG drops online.

Dr. Emma, a HCG weight loss specialist, says that HCG drops don’t have a high enough concentration of HCG to be very effective. That you should get injections to see real results.
Today, on the Dr. Oz show, many guest users on a HCG weight loss plan, said that drops 3 times per day worked for them.

Dr. Oz doesn’t recommend the drops either because there is inconclusive evidence that the drops really work and that the 500 calorie diet is to extreme without a doctor involved.

There are also many harmful side effects of being on this diet. Some include dizziness, headaches, nausea, mood swings, and decreased brain function.

There is no scientific proof that HCG help to reduce fat or reduce hunger and the FDA won’t approve the drug.
