HCG diet | Why you don’t lose muscle mass on the HCG diet plan

 A lot of newcomers to the HCG Diet Plan are confused about how the plan works. If you are considering giving the HCG diet program a try, you may have questions about what it does and how exactly it helps you to lose fat.

One theory ... HCG Deficit in the Body may be helped by the HCG Diet

 We are all born with a reserve of the HCG hormone, which regulates the hypothalamus in the brain.  Over time, chemicals in our food & other negative impacts of our modern lifestyle deplete HCG. Without HCG in the body, it is theorized that the hypothalamus does not burn excess fat.

HCG and Muscle Mass

HCG is the hormone that triggers the body to burn excess adipose tissue instead of lean muscle tissue when also following the HCG Diet.  Without the HCG injections as part of the HCG Diet, your body will burn lean muscle mass and structural fat, but will never get to the root cause of your obesity–excess fat.

HCG Assists in Restoring Hormonal Balance

By taking HCG injections and following the HCG Diet many of our patients seem to become hormonally balanced.  We have done female hormone profiles before and after the Natural HCG Diet and seen that levels of estrogen and progesterone balance out.  This renewed balance in hormones can also get to the root of obesity-related health problems.

The HCG Diet Plan Succeeds where Others Fail

As you can see, one of the keys to the success of the HCG diet plan is a simple hormonal rebalance. This diet plan addresses the fundamental hormonal deficit that your body experiences and works with your body to correct it. The result is safe, rapid weight loss that occurs naturally.  Our program is physician supervised and we are there to guide you to be sure the program is safe and effective!

Excess Exercise is not necessary on the HCG Diet Plan

Excessive exercise is not necessary to assist in weight loss on the HCG diet plan. You may exercise very slowly and gently on the program but there is no need to over due it.  You may wonder if less exercise will cause you to lose lean muscle mass. In our experience, very little muscle tissue is lost on the diet because your body learns to burn only fat tissue. Once you have reached your goal weight, you can return to the gym as part of a normal, healthy lifestyle.
