WHAT IS HCG?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is a protein hormone that is produced during pregnancy and is also known as a Peptide. Its detection in urine is the basis for all pregnancy tests.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
HCG is believed to promote weight loss because the hormone converts fat to calories during pregnancy for use by the baby and, in the process, speeds up the mother's metabolism. It is thought that it can achieve the same effect when used by people who want to lose weight.
WHO DISCOVERED HCG AND DOCUMENTED ITS BENEFITS?
While practicing in Rome, Italy in 1954, the late British Physician, Dr. A. T. W. Simeons first discovered the use of HCG in the treatment of obesity which resulted in his first published report on the topic.He devoted years of research to various patients suffering from obesity and during this time, noticed several important factors while combining the use of HCG and a patient on a very low calorie diet. For example, his patients had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability since the low calorie diet was combined with HCG.
WHAT IS THE THEORY BEHIND USING HCG FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Found in the blood stream, HCG helps reset the hypothalamus and trigger signals for the body to begin breaking down reserve 'mobile body fats' as a primary fuel source. Dr. Simeons findings showed that these signals occur when the body experiences a low calorie diet. HCG is also known to send out signals to conserve and maintain 'structural fat,' i.e. your muscles and protect your organs and HCG makes the bodies think it is consuming its required daily allotment of calories. He believed that HCG would mobilize stored fat, suppress appetite and redistribute fat from the waist, hips and thighs, breaking down abnormal body fat, resulting in weight loss.
IS HCG SAFE TO USE AND IS IT FDA APPROVED FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
When taking any new medical product, we recommend that you consult your physician beforehand. While the FDA has not approved HCG for weight loss, studies have shown that following Dr. Simeons Protocol Diet strictly, while taking HCG, can help weight loss.
DOES HCG REALLY WORK FOR WEIGHT LOSS AND HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE?
When following Dr. Simeons protocol 'strictly' and taking the correct dosage of HCG drops, results have shown dieters can show substantial weight loss and dieters can hope to lose between 0.5 and 1.5 lb of excess weight per day. Dependent on the length of time spent on the full protocol, which we heavily recommend to be limited each time to a maximum of 23 days, taking a break for three to six weeks before attempting re commencement, dieters can and have lost in excess of 40 lb of excess body fat.
IS THERE A STANDARD DAILY DOSAGE FOR MAXIMUM WEIGHT LOSS?
Our recommended daily dosage is to start at 15 drops, taken under the tongue three times daily, and if you do not feel hungry, carry on at that dosage.If you do feel hungry increase the dosage by two extra drops but remain at three times daily, until you no longer feel hungry. We do recommend no more than 20 drops taken three times daily.Some dieters have reported that taking six drops six times per day, are showing better results due to the consistency of HCG in the system.
HOW MANY BOTTLES WILL I NEED FOR MY DIET?
A one oz bottle of HCG typically lasts for 13 days but this can vary between dieters. We recommend that you purchase enough HCG to last the full protocol i.e. 23 days e.g. a minimum two oz of HCG.
WHEN SHOULD I TAKE HCG?
We recommend that you take your HCG dosage a minimum of 15 minutes before eating and we recommend taking NOTHING orally 15 minutes before eating. This includes and is not exclusive to: Food, drink, cigarettes, chewing gum, toothpaste and mouthwash etc.We also recommend limiting nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, fizzy drinks until at least one hour after dosage.
CAN I TAKE OTHER MEDICATIONS WHILST TAKING HCG?
We encourage our dieters to take daily multi-vitamin supplements containing Vitamin B, C, and D complex. Vitamin B12 has been shown to help aid HCG in weight loss, promoting a healthy immune system. If you are taking any supplements that contain oils, it is recommended to end use until after your HCG protocol is complete. If you are taking any medication, before beginning your HCG protocol, please consult your physician or local pharmacy to see if your prescriptions counteract with HCG. Some medications are known to increase weight gain, therefore taking these while on HCG may affect your weight loss.
WHAT SORT OF FOOD CAN I EAT WHILST ON THE HCG DIET?
Food selection comes down to around 20 or so meats, vegetables and fruits.Meats include Beef, Veal, Chicken breast meat (no skin), Shrimp, Lobster, Crab, some white fish e.g.Flounder, Sole, Sea Bass, Grouper and Halibut (not oily fish e.g. sardine, tuna, or mackerel).Vegetables include Tomato, Celery, Lettuce, Spinach, Cucumber, Onion, Cabbage, Asparagus, Chard, Radish and Beet greens.Fruits include Grapefruit, Oranges, Strawberries and Apples (avoid if you have low blood/sugar or are hypoglycemic). Keep in mind that your daily intake will be around 500 calories.
ARE THERE ANY FOODS I HAVE TO AVOID?
All fats, starches, complex carbohydrates and sugars need to be removed from your diet while taking HCG.
DO THE DROPS NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED OR STORED SPECIALLY?
While sealed - No but once opened, although they do not need to be refrigerated, the drops should be kept at room temperature (Avoid direct sunlight)and kept away from most electronic items, especially any form of x-ray, microwaves, cable boxes, TVs and Cell Phones.
DO I HAVE TO DILUTE THE DROPS BEFORE TAKING THEM?
The HCG we offer is homeopathic and is an alternative to the full strength hormone. The HCG hormone is made into a homeopathic remedy, which is diluted hundreds of times and made more potent, so that it is an energetic imprint of the original substance, which works in your body on an energetic level.
IS HCG SAFE FOR MEN AND WOMEN?
Homeopathic HCG can be used safely in both men and women. Always check with your doctor or physician before beginning any new weight loss program. If your BMI value is lower than 20 it is not recommended for use. Also, Do NOT use homeopathic HCG if you are pregnant or nursing.
WILL I STARVE ON THE VERY LOW CALORIE DIET (VLCD)?
HCG helps to liquefy fat, which opens all a person's fat cells. The liquid fat is then made accessible to the body to use as energy. Even though a person is consuming less calories, the body is able to access the stored energy that is in the fat cells which naturally reduces a person's appetite. After a few days on the HCG diet plan, many people report a major decrease in their appetite. Most people that have successfully completed the HCG diet program have reported having plenty of energy while on the program.
COULD I LOSE THE SAME AMOUNT OF WEIGHT WITHOUT USING HCG AND JUST FOLLOWING THE VLCD?
Anyone can lose weight, just by simply cutting back on calories and fat consumption. However, the risk and negative effect that happens is that the body will tend to lose mostly muscle before fat. When the body is deprived of calories, it stores fat and this causes the cellular metabolism to slow down. As a person's metabolism slows down it makes it easier to gain weight and also decreases muscle mass. By following the HCG diet protocol (VLCD and taking HCG drops), excess fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated. The VLCD is essential because it prevents an instant refilling of the emptied fat cells and this are what helps maintain your muscle mass by getting rid of the fat deposits. The HCG drops help to suppress your appetite and reset your hypothalamus gland.
WHAT IS THE HYPOTHALAMUS GLAND?
The hypothalamus has the exquisite control over many regulatory functions of the body. These include hunger, day/night cycles, basal metabolic rate, growth, fertility, pregnancy, temperature.
AFTER THE DIET IS IT HARD TO KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF THAT YOU LOST WHILE USING HCG?
So long as you follow the protocol strictly your bodies will have transformed and their eating behaviors and appetite have completely changed after completing the HCG diet. With your hypothalamus reset, your metabolism will be different from when you started the HCG protocol. Most people are able to eat moderately without feeling the need to over-eat. This is the perfect opportunity to adapt a healthy lifestyle to maintain your new weight. People have also reported that just 15-30 minutes of minimum amounts of light exercises are sufficient for maintaining a healthy body. People who have successfully completed the protocol has reported having had hardly any or no difficulty maintaining their new, ideal weight.
