Two thirds of the US adult population is overweight and obese. When obesity has reached such epidemic proportions, people are always on the lookout for the latest fad in losing weight. Anything that promises a quick-fix solution will be embraced by these people who are fed up with slow weight loss programs. The HCG for weight loss program is out in the market in such a scenario. Hence, there are mixed opinions about the effectiveness of the program. Some people claim that the program is effective while the others claim that it is all hype. This article will highlight some of the pros and cons of the HCG for weight loss program.
First of all, let us take a look at what actually HCG is. HCG or Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone that is produced during pregnancy in women. HCG is important in protecting the fetus by making sure that the developing fetus gets all the nutrients and calories for its growth. It is done without being dependent on the mother’s intake of food. The HCG hormone will access the fat deposits in the mother’s body and burn them as food for the fetus. Excess fat is stored in the buttocks, hips, thighs and abdomen. The HCG hormone will burn these fat deposits and use it as energy to feed the fetus.
The HCG for weight loss program is based on a daily restrictive calorie intake coupled with a daily intake of HCG drops. The calories per day is restricted to 500, which is very low by any standard. If you continue with such a low daily calorie intake for sometime, you will surely lose weight, but all the lost weight will come back, as soon as, you stop the diet. With such a low calorie intake, your body will burn fat, as well as, muscle mass for energy. This will make you lose weight for sure, but once you are finished with the diet program, the body will store more fat than usual in order to rebuild the muscle mass. This will make the whole diet program counterproductive in losing real and permanent weight.
The real benefit is in taking the HCG drops with the restrictive calorie diet program. HCG drops a.k.a. Homeopathic Supplement Drops will ensure that your body will burn only the fat deposits and not the muscle mass. These findings are based on the research done by A.T.W. Simeons, M.D, on the subject of HCG weight loss. When HCG is present in your system, your body will open up the fat stores and burn them as fuel. A low calorie diet alone, will make your body lethargic, weak and ravenously hungry. But with the presence of the HCG drops in the system, all these symptoms will vanish as the body will get the required energy by burning stored fat deposits.
This is the theory behind the effectiveness of the HCG drops for weight loss. There are many positive reviews for the product across the web. But one thing must be said, and that is these homeopathic drops are not approved by the FDA, as yet. So, it is always better to start the program under the supervision of a qualified medical practitioner.
