HCG Diet Program
HCG stands for Human Chorio Gonadotropin hormone. It is the same hormone that is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. It is not a sex hormone; it has no effect on sex characteristics of either men or women.
HCG works on the dienchephalic part of brain to curb the appetite and mobilize the stored fat to be used as fuel. It does not burn our structured fat or muscle.
It does incorporate a 500 calorie diet along with daily low dose of HCG. On average, people on this program are usually able to loss about ½ to 1 pound per day.
The HCG diet program works well for patients who have more than 20 pounds over weight or who have metabolic syndrome with diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.
