What actually is the HCG weight loss program? It has been known since the 1950’s to have quick results in eliminating excess fats in the body. The question should really be is that is it safe or does it bring more danger to the body than what it claims.
Being in an HCG weight loss program gives you the illusion of losing weight in the fastest time possible. The program involves eating only 500 calories a day and is combined with having drops or injections of HCG. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is a hormone produced by women during pregnancy. It is usually found and extracted from the urine of an expecting mother. This is why exerts have been warning dieters about the drawbacks of this HCG weight loss program.
If HCG is bad for the health, why is it still in the market? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the release and continues the distribution of HCG because of its good treatment effects it gives to infertile men and women.
The HCG weight loss program started when a British endocrinologist found out that giving regular doses of these hormones to obese patients results in losing clumps of stuck fat in the body. Little does he know that the slimming effects of these shots are only effective when it is combined with a near-starvation diet. This is so because HCG acts as a food suppressant. Anyone who is in an HCG weight loss program and takes in regular doses of HCG tends to have a hard time consuming food of more than 500 calories everyday. This can now sometimes bring danger to some people.
If you really wish to have a perfect figure, have tried almost everything and still does not gain the results that you desire you can try this program if you want. Just remember that before starting with the HCG weight loss program, it is better to consult with your doctor first to make sure.
