What is hCG?
HCG stands for “human Chorionic Gonadotropin”. It is a human byproduct produced during a woman’s pregnancy. It’s role is to maintain the progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy. Some researchers believe that hCG can provide pregnant women with extra immunity during pregnancy and can actually help the body burn more fat. The result is that the burning of fat can be used to aid in weight loss when combined with a healthy low-calorie diet.
What are the three types of fat our body is made up of?
Necessary fat that fills the gap between our internal organs. Think about this type of fat as our body packing material. Structural Fat also performs the important functions of bedding the kidneys in soft elastic tissue, protecting the coronary arteries and keeping the skin both smooth and taut. It also provides the springy cushion of hard fat under the bones of the feet, without which we couldn’t walk. An excess of this fat can not produce obesity
Our reserve fuel readily available for consumption. This fat is all over our body just below the skin. This is the first fat that gets consumed when doing regular diets. People that lose this fat are always hungry and miserable. Their skin and face tend to wrinkle. An excess of this fat can not produce obesity.
Also a reserve fuel, but not readily available for consumption. It is locked away in warehouses and will only become available as a last resort. It resides on the abdomen, the hips, thighs, upper arms, chin and shoulders. This fat is dangerous, unattractive, stored for long periods of time, and the last fat to be consumed in periods of starvation.
This is how fat is utilized in the body. When someone overweight goes on a diet, they try to reduce their weight by starving themselves. First they will lose their Normal Fat. When this is exhausted, the body begins to burn up Structural Fat and then only as a last resort, the body yields its Abnormal Fat.
By that time the dieter usually feels weak and hungry. They feel famished and tired. Their face becomes drawn, skin wrinkles and they look old and miserable. However, their belly, hips, thighs and upper arms show little improvement. The fat they have come to detest remains and the fat they need to cover their bones gets less and less. Dieters that continue their diet after the normal fat is consumed will lose both abnormal fat and muscle at the same rate. With hCG, the abnormal fat will be consumed first.
How was the hCG diet discovered and how does it work?
HCG has become a preferred treatment for obesity and weight loss by physicians around the world. It first appeared in papers by Dr. ATW Simeons in 1954. According to Dr. Simeons, hCG is a glycoprotein hormone that plays a large role in cellular interaction. hCG helps to stabilize the hypothalamus. This is the portion of the brain responsible for regulating hunger, thirst, body temperature and weight set point. The hypothalamus also helps sustain a targeted weight after dieting; making it easier to keep the weight off. Dr. Simeon also concluded that hCG helps break down deeply stored abnormal fatty tissues and evacuates them via the kidneys so that the body can utilize the calories released from the fatty stores.
Therefore, hCG not only increases the body’s metabolism and promotes weight loss, it also targets the abnormal fat deposits and spares lean muscle mass. It is believed to protect your body’s good fat and muscle from depleting while dieting. This means that you could go on a low-calorie food plan, lose weight, and may not experience the typical problems such as muscle loss, sagging skin, and hunger pains.
HCG can be administered via a quick subcutaneous injection or taken orally, under the tongue to be rapidly absorbed which allows a person to subsist more on their abnormal fat than on what they eat. It triggers the body to provide a constant flow of “food” received from the abnormal fat that your body is breaking down. One pound of fat will provide the bloodstream with about 3,500 calories. That means using hCG, with a combined 500 calorie diet, will burn about 3000 to 4000 calories of stored fat. Since most of the nourishment is being supplied by the abnormal fat, our patients will not feel hungry or weak.
