HCG Medical Weight Loss Program:
HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a natural hormone that can be used by men and women for weight loss. It is naturally present in the female body during pregnancy. When taken under the guidelines of a physician, and by following a healthy eating regimen, the results are an average of ½ pound of fat loss per day!
How the HCG Diet Works
HCG diet is a weight loss treatment that lasts for 26-40 days, depending on desired weight loss. A daily shot of the HCG hormone will be required for the first 23 days. The treatment can last up to 40 days. This depends on the amount of weight loss that has occurred the first 26 days. In addition to receiving daily hcg injections, HCG patients will restrict their caloric intake to 500 calories per day. The food consumed in this 26 to 40-day cycle will consist primarily of high protein and minimal carbohydrates. The dieter will not feel hungry because the calorie deficiency is made up by the fat the HCG is burning off. HCG injections can continue after a 3-4 week break to lose additional fat. HCG should not be abused.
The Benefits of the HCG Diet
The HCG Diet provides a number of benefits. These include: rapid weight loss in minimal time, virtually no hunger pains, doctor supervision, and metabolism maintenance. These benefits are only achieved with the strict following of the meal plan provided with the HCG diet.
Side Effects of the HCG Diet
Even with the profound benefits of the HCG diet, there are still some side effects that users should be aware of. These include: headaches, low caloric intake, and mild swelling at injection site. Some individuals may feel the side effects of the HCG diet and some may not. One must fully prepare themselves for these possible, yet minimally adverse side effects.
The HCG diet may sound too good to be true, but it does take effort and determination to see the results. If you follow the protocol outlined by Dr. Monagle, there is little doubt you will achieve the weight loss you desire.
