HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)
HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) has an effect on metabolism. It is believed to work in the primitive part of the brain in several ways:
- The first is to suppress the notion of hunger.
- The second is to stabilize blood sugars.
- The third is to enhance the conversion of fat stored in the body to an energy source the body can utilize.
Of course, this approach is not without controversy. The FDA has declared the above claims are not true. However, in my professional and personal experience, it has proven to be effective in achieving rapid weight loss without significant safety concerns.
Patients lose between 0.5 pounds and 2 pounds per day, depending on many factors. It is important to utilize a doctor experienced in the use of HCG for weight if you choose this approach. It is not easy on your body to endure. However, it is surprisingly easy to comply with the protocol despite its very stringent guidelines.
