The Truth About hCG for Weight Loss

Diets dont have to be traditional to be effective — but when a weight loss diet involves injections of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), a hormone found in the urine of pregnant women, you better be careful. Two thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese. That staggering statistic drives an insatiable appetite for solutions –preferably ones that are quick and easy. Some dieters grow frustrated with slow weight loss and start looking for a quick fix. Like the “lose 30 pounds in 30 days” promise in The Weight Loss Cure ‘They’ Dont Want You to Know About that promotes hCG. How the hCG Diet Works In theory, the hCG hormone is supposed to suppress hunger and trigger your bodys use of fat for fuel. Most hCG diet plans restrict dieters to only 500 calories per day of mostly organic, unprocessed foods along with the hCG injections or serum drops under the tongue (note: The oral hCG may contain little, if any, hCG). Follow the plan for 45 days straight, you will fix your metabolism, and lose several pounds a day, so the advertisements claim. That’s unlikely, say diet and nutrition experts. You will lose weight on the hCG diets but the weight loss will be the result of the very low-calorie or starvation-like diet, not the hCG.
