With advances in modern science, experts are now able to understand better than ever before the importance of a balanced metabolism and the effects hormones have on fat cells. HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone produced during pregnancy that regulates metabolic function for the duration of the pregnancy. The HCG diet uses this hormone to encourage weight loss.
The HCG diet, based on the research of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, is a low-calorie diet that focuses on select proteins, fruits, and vegetables. Since HCG allows the body to release abnormally stored fat and use it for calories, the diet results in the burning of excess fat without depleting the body’s essential vitamins and minerals. The HCG diet delivers fast results in both weight and inch loss, so you can again experience optimal health at the weight that is best for you.
