The 4 Perks of the HCG Diet

posted by

Helping people lose 1–2 pounds per day and roughly 30 pounds in one month, the HCG diet has emerged as a savior against obesity.  It involves a low-calorie diet routine, 500–800 calories at most, followed by an HCG injection.

Another fun fact about the HCG is that it helps a person to shed unwanted pounds, without experiencing hunger.

Before we discuss the many perks of HCG, let’s take a look at what HCG really is and what it has to offer.

What is HCG?

HCG is a hormone that’s produced in abundance during the initial phases of pregnancy. Also found in at-home pregnancy kits, the hormone is used to treat infertility in men and women.

Introduced in 1954 by Dr. Simeons, the diet follows two basic rules for weight loss:

  • A calorie intake of 500–800 calories per day
  • Injection of the HCG hormones in your body

Once injected, these chemicals trigger a reaction that causes the burning of adipose fat, causing weight loss and regulating your body’s metabolic functions.

1. Improves your Metabolic Function

Most dieting programs induce hunger — the cut down on calories makes your body believe it’s starving, causing it to save calories instead of burning them! The low burning of calories is the reason why you feel exceptionally tired during the dieting phase.

However, this isn’t how HCG functions — it speeds up your metabolic reactions, causing your body to burn fat reserves. So while you’re on an HCG diet, you no longer need to worry about fatigue or weariness!

2. Healthy reduction of Weight

Unbalanced reduction of fat leads to a disproportionate figure, which is so not how you want your dieting to turn out! HCG shreds fat from all areas of your body to ensure a balanced reduction.

3. Lower Cholesterol

1 out of 8 people in the U.S. have high cholesterol, making it a high risk factor for heart attacks.

Fortunately, the HCG diet takes care of your cholesterol level! Coupled with your low-calorie diet, HCG reduces the cholesterol levels in your blood, decreasing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

4. Preserves Muscle Integrity

Perhaps the biggest drawback of dieting is the loss of muscle mass. What makes it worse is the fact that muscle mass is hard to gain and as you attempt to regain it, you end up gaining more weight than you originally lost!  

The HCG injection preserves your muscle mass while burning the unwanted fat, keeping those muscles and bones in good shape!
