There is a wide selection of products and plans within the weight loss industry, promising successful results. With almost two thirds of the adult population of America classified as overweight, there is high demand for new diets, products and weight loss plans. However, no product has generated so much interest and speculation as the HCG diet.
What is the HCG Diet?
The HCG diet plan is centered around the HCG compound. HCG is designed to mimic the hormone produced in pregnancy to unlock the body fat stored in the body to increase nutrition and energy for the baby and mum to be. When used for weight loss, the HCG works in conjunction with a low calorie diet to allow the body to consume fat, especially in those challenging areas which are stubborn to shift. Most practitioners recommend taking HCG in combination with a low fat, low calorie diet. This ensures that the body utilizes the calories stored within the stored fat rather than what is being consumed on a daily basis.
Does HCG Work?
There has been a great deal of data supporting the use of HCG for weight loss. Initially, slimmers took the HCG in liquid form, placing a drop in the mouth under the tongue up to fifteen minutes before consuming a meal. However, HCG is also now available in injections, which make it even easier to ensure that you have taken the optimum amount for healthy weight loss. Unfortunately, the successful results of HCG were marred by the influx of counterfeit drops which flooded the market due to consumer demand. This along with people not properly following a HCG diet plan, meant that many people considered HCG to be unsuccessful for significant weight loss.
