What is HCG and how does it work?

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin or HCG is a naturally occurring hormone in the human body. It is commonly referred to as the pregnancy hormone as it allows the body to metabolize fats stores and use it as energy for the mother and the fetus. During pregnancy these hormone levels double every two days.

It is used in the medical profession to treat a variety of conditions. In weight loss, a very small amount of this hormone can be used in the same way as used in pregnancy. It can turned stored fat into energy.

Human bodies naturally store excess fat as a survival mechanism, to be used when food is scarce. However, if food does not become scarce, the fat will continue to build. It is this mechanism that can keep you from losing the excess weight that you have been trying to lose.

Those who try starvation to lose weigh end up losing mostly muscle rather than fat. So even when the food does get scarce, the body still tries to hold on to those fat stores for as long as possible.

Boosting your HCG levels allows your body to target those fat stores, which in turn releases energy and allows you to lose weight at a more rapid pace. You are reversing the effect that has kept you from losing your excess weight. It works and is completely safe for both women and men.

Used in conjunction with a low calorie diet, this hormone triggers the hypothalamus to move the stored fat out of its hiding places (think hips, thighs, problem areas) and use it for fuel. The hormone only targets the stored fat. Structural fat and muscle tissue are kept intact. As long as you get appropriate amounts of rest, you won't feel tired or hungry and you will be burning thousands of calories in the process.
