HCG ... Where It Comes From?

HCG is a naturally occurring, water-based hormone that is produced by the† placenta during pregnancy. According to Dr. A.T. Simeon in India during the 1950s, the function of this hormone is to protect the fetus by preventing the mother's system from robbing it of nutrients should the mother experience malnutrition or a shortage of calories.  It has been noticed that during pregnancy, even woman who have been through famine times can give birth to low, but normal birth weight babies.


Some research that I have read states that when we are born, we retain a large amount of this hormone. During childhood, HCG appears to regulate the use of calories, keeping us at a healthy weight. Unfortunately, the nature of today's diet with its chemical additives, pesticides and preservatives, coupled with over-processing that strips out much of the nutrient content, depletes our bodies of HCG. By the time we reach adulthood, are natural supply of HCG is virtually gone. It is thoerized that without HCG, most weight loss efforts are doomed to failure because of the way our bodies' thermostat, the hypothalamus gland, operates when we cut calories. Fat cells represent reserve fuel, and the hypothalamus will conserve this fuel at any cost by slowing our metabolism and feeding off of lean muscle tissue before dipping into precious fat reserves.  By replacing your natural supply of HCG, the hypothalamus is literally re-programmed to use fat reserves first rather than last. At this point, it becomes very important to follow the HCG Diet carefully.

What happens on the HCG Diet

The HCG Diet begins with a loading phase where you consume a large amount of health fats for 2 days. This is a way to prime the body for the low calorie portion of the HCG diet.  Next, it is vital that you follow the HCG Diet  protocol exactly as it is outlined in your Natural HCG Diet manual. This is a 500-calorie-per-day diet consisting of lean meats and vegetables – no bread or pasta. This represents about a third of the calories an average healthy adult requires. It is theorized that the combination† the HCG diet and the HCG will force the hypothalamus to make up the deficit from fat stores. Finally, you must avoid all vigorous exercise (mild exercise such as walking is fine). The reason is that strenuous physical activity causes the body to expend resources even faster, which in turn causes the hypothalamus to cut back on metabolism even further – something you do not want to have happen when following the HCG Diet.

Maintaining Weight Loss after the HCG Diet

Once you have completed the low calorie HCG phase of the HCG Diet program, you will enter into the stabilization phase where you will slowly begin adding in different types of meats, vegetables and fats.  At this point, you will continue to avoid carbohydrates such as starches and sugars for another 21 days.  After the stabilization phase of the HCG Diet you can begin the maintenance phase or the rest of your life phase of the HCG Diet plan.  In this phase, you slowly begin to add foods back into your diet one by one.  You weigh yourself daily to be sure you stay within 2-4 lbs. of your last injection day weight.  There are tools to help you if you go over so that you can stay on track and maintain the weight that you lost with ease.

Disclaimer: HCG is not approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration as a weight-loss medication. This is a legal but "off label" use.
