A Quick Background On HCG
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone naturally produced in women's bodies during pregnancy. HCG has a unique effect on the hypothalamus which causes the body to use excess fat as its main energy source. This means that the body can finally use all the fat it has stored, which can lead to incredible weight loss results.
How The HCG Diet Works
In order to achieve success with the HCG diet, we recommend following two specific regimens: taking a dose of HCG every day and limiting yourself to a daily intake of 500 calories. For best results, we believe sticking with the diet for either 26 or 40 days (whichever works for your schedule). By limiting your caloric intake to only 500 calories per day, you allow your body to burn the excess fat it has stored.
Frequently Asked Questions About The HCG Diet
Like any other diet program, many of our clients have several questions about the HCG diet - but never fear! Your friends at the best compounding pharmacy in central Missouri are here with all the answers.
Q: How Much Weight Will I Lose?
A: Every body is different, and we all respond to the HCG diet in slightly different ways. If you follow the diet as directed, you should expect to lose anywhere between 15 and 35 pounds by the end of the program.
Q: Because HCG Is Found In Pregnant Women, Is It Dangerous To Men?
A: In a word, no. Men who have taken HCG have not experienced any adverse side effects or any decrease in sexual function. In fact, men using the HCG diet tend to lose weight more quickly than women do.
A: You do need a prescription, but we make it super easy to get one! We work with a local doctor who writes all our HCG prescriptions for us. If you are interested in starting the HCG diet, stop by our compounding pharmacy at the Lake of the Ozarks and ask for Sharon.
Q: How Is HCG Administered?
A: HCG can be administered in the form of sublingual drops or a nasal spray, whichever you would prefer. Both are available for both the 26- or 40-day schedule.
Q: Can I Eat Any 500 Calories I Want?
A: Technically, the HCG diet requires you to follow a strict regimen regarding what types of food you are allowed to eat. If you are interested, we can provide you with a hand-out that specifically outlines the dietary requirements.
Q: If I Only Eat 500 Calories Per Day, Will I Constantly Be Hungry?
A: It is common to feel hungry during the first few days, but after that you should not notice a major difference. Once your body adjusts, it will move abnormal fat cells out of the "storage area" and instead let them circulate through the bloodstream. As they are metabolized, your body will get the energy it needs from these extra fat cells.
