What is The HCG Diet?
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone naturally produced in the human body and is used quite frequently with the HCG Diet. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is often referred to as the pregnancy hormone, but during pregnancy the levels double every two days. This hormone allows the body to metabolize stored fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This acts as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss during the HCG Diet, only a very small amount of HCG is used to capitalize on this same mechanism. Using HCG in this way during the HCG Diet does not mimic pregnancy; in fact, it can be safely used by both men and women. This dieting method was introduced by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in the 1970's and known as the HCG Diet.
Today we encourage people to take the best parts of the HCG Diet and combine them with modern science and supplements.
