What is HCG?
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is a hormone in the body produced by the placenta of a pregnant woman. The presence of this hormone is usually detectable in the blood within the first 10 days of fertilization. Hence, it is used as the basis of most pregnancy tests. It is also produced by the male reproductive system.
What is HCG Injection?
HCG Injection is often given to solve fertility issues in women. Recently, pieces of research have found a link between HCG and weight loss. It was affirmed that HCG can help to solve weight loss issues. The standard dosage of HCG injection is 200 IU/day. More so, you are not permitted to take some foods for a particular period of time.
How does the Injection Works?
How amazing is it that the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone produced by pregnant women can be used to meet you weight loss goals! In fact, the hormone performs the same role it does in pregnant women to bring about weight loss in both males and females.
How does HCG work for pregnant women?
Assuming a pregnant woman does not eat sufficient food, this hormone prompts the use of excessive fats that are stored in the body in order to provide the essential energy needed during pregnancy. This same strategy is applied to men and women to bring about a breakdown of the excessive fat in their body. This is done through the artificial introduction of the HCG through the HCG Injection.
How is the HCG Diet Injection used for Weight Loss?
Fat is an essential component of the body that performs different functions. Although it is useful, fat can become harmful if consumed or stored in excess. This excess fat is usually stored in strategic body parts, such as the thighs, stomach, and the hips. This can alter your physical shape and structure which makes you physically unfit.
HCG injections are useful when it comes to eliminating the unwanted fat from the body. Usually, we recommend that you use HCG injection together with low-calories diets for maximum result. We do recommend that patients under the HCG injection should consume between 500 – 800 calories per day. Together with this, the HCG injection ensures that the unwanted fat in the body are utilized while the muscle tissues are retained.
If you are dedicated to the HCG program, you can lose about 1 to 2 pounds daily. More so, if you want to get the best out of this program, these injections should be administered daily. This will ensure that your body continues to burn the excess fat while also consuming diets with low calorie.
What are the processes of HCG Weight Loss?
HCG weight loss process typically starts within 4 – 8 weeks of the HCG treatment. During this period, the body’s metabolism resets to that of the HCG treatment and continues like that even when the HCG program comes to an end. There are 4 major phases of HCG.
· Phase 1 (Loading Phase)
The first phase of HCG treatment is characterized by heightened calorie consumption in order to form fat stores. Although this stage is usually exciting, we usually encourage our patients not to pay attention to the cravings but rather focus on how they will become successful in the rest of the phases.
· Phase 2 (Tasking phase)
The second phase of the HCG injection treatment is the most tasking phase and can last for about 24 – 40 days. This phase is the most tasking because the patient at this phase will be restricted to the number of calories to consume. Our experience with patients is that the HCG injections usually induce hunger and you may find yourself having a high appetite during this phase.
Often, this craving for food does not mean you are hungry but rather because of the societal settings. However, the good news is that once you know the problems associated with eating more, you will want to avoid high-stress level and other situations that come your way.
· Phase 3 (Stabilization phase)
This phase is called the stability stage because the patient will not require the HCG injection anymore. However, we recommend that you check your weight daily to ensure that it is fairly okay even without the injection. More so, we encourage our patients to keep consuming the specific diet we recommend.
· Phase 4 (maintenance phase)
This phase is all about maintaining the new weight you achieved from the HCG weight loss program. At this stage, we equip our patients will all the knowledge and materials they need to sustain the new weight. Although this fourth phase does not have much diet limitations like the second and third phase, we still do warn against going back to the previous unhealthy eating.
What are the benefits of using HCG Injections?
There are many benefits attached to using the HCG injection together with low-calorie diet. Some of them are highlighted below.
✔ Muscle Preservation
As against other popular weight-loss programs, HCG treatment program conserves the muscle tissues and only the fat stored in them are consumed. HCG injections will not only ensure that you lose that unwanted fat but also reserve your muscle tissue for the overall wellbeing of the body.
✔ Increased Metabolism
Simply put, metabolism is the ratio of fat consumed to fat used by the body. An increased metabolism will ensure that more calories are used than consumed. By influencing the metabolism level, you will achieve a stable metabolism level and retain the weight you desire.
✔ No Hunger-related Excessive Food Consumption
HCG treatments allow you to stick to your diet plan without facing too much problem of hunger. Except for the cravings that come due to societal settings and daily stress, the entire HCG treatment program does not leave you with too many difficulties.
✔ Enhanced Testosterone Production
Research has also indicated that men who take HCG injections experience a boost in their testosterone level. Testosterone is an important sex hormone of a male. It prompts the sexual characteristics development, virility, and muscle development. Therefore, you have an additional benefit side by side your major aim of losing weight.
✔ Cheap & Affordable
Another notable benefit of the HCG treatment is that it is cheap and affordable. Most people have been denied several weight-loss programs due to a high cost of getting them. HCG treatment allows you to burn those excess fats without having to empty your bank account.
We are all aware that the stress and hassle of hitting the gym every now and then are painful and tiresome. With the HCG injection, you don’t have to hit the gym or go through any form of stressful or unpleasant workout sessions.
