HCG — What is it & How Can it Help You Lose Weight?

HCGHCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a pregnancy hormone that has helped countless men and non–pregnant women shed pounds and inches. During pregnancy, the hormone is responsible for ensuring that the fetus has enough nutrients to grow and thrive. When necessary, it does this by triggering the woman’s brain to use her own body’s fat stores as sustenance for the fetus. Many believe that HCG injections can cause similar reactions in the bodies of men and non–pregnant women, allowing them to lose weight and maintain adequate nutrition despite consuming few calories.

But, HCG injections do more than simply trigger the brain to use up the body’s fat stores. The hormone is also believed to help diminish many of the side effects that are otherwise associated with low–calorie diets, including:

  • Hunger
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness
  • Irritability

Since these side effects are experienced less frequently by some people who utilize HCG injections, dieters are able to stick to their weight–loss regimens for longer periods of time.

Following the HCG diet protocol — which includes consuming no more than 500 calories daily, drinking lots of water, avoiding starchy foods, and administering a daily hormone injection — can help some people lose between one–half and one pound of fat every day.
