9 Benefits of HCG Diet

HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone. It is one of the hormones found in men and women that assists in regulating the body’s metabolic functions. When injected, HCG forces your body to burn adipose fat. Coupled with extremely low-calorie intake, HCG can promote a weight loss of anywhere between one-half to one pound daily.

Here are 9 additional benefits delivered by the HCG diet.

Improved Metabolic Function

In most dieting programs, cutting back on calories increases hunger. Your body thinks it is starving, slowing down metabolic functions with the unintended consequence of storing, rather than burning, extra calories. HCG achieves the opposite by instructing your body to use fat reserves as a supply of energy, speeding up your metabolic rate.

Energy Increase

Most people suffer from a lack of energy. Dieting can compound feelings of exhaustion, hunger, irritability and overall fatigue. While using HCG, your body is releasing adipose fat, turning it into valuable energy. Most dieters report a significant increase in energy levels within days.

Healthy Weight Reduction

HCG burns excess fat from all over your body. This means you will shed fat from your waist, arms, neck, butt, and thighs, avoiding an unbalanced reduction. It also targets those fat stores which can be tough to lose via normal dieting.

Lower Cholesterol

HCG, coupled with a low-calorie intake, reduces blood cholesterol levels. Maintaining healthy eating habits once through the HCG diet will decrease your odds of getting heart-related diseases.

Preserved Muscle Integrity

Many diets that cause you to lose weight fast cut both fat and muscle. The problem is, dieting stops, muscle is much harder to gain back than fat, and you can put back on more pounds than you lost. HCG preserves muscle mass while releasing stored fats, which is important for a healthy bone and muscle building.

Hormone Regulation

HCG balances your body’s hormones. It also releases sexual endocrines such as testosterone, which can improve libido for men. Additionally, estrogen levels for women are more fully regulated through HCG injections, promoting bodily homeostasis and a healthy weight loss.

No Associated Hunger

Most diets that require you to cut calories to an extremely low level will prompt intense hunger. The HCG diet requires a strict intake of only 500 calories per day. However, HCG injections cause your body to pull calories from stored fat, so you do not experience severe hunger sensations. Instead, you can burn fat easily while only having to count an easy 500 calories a day. You will be able to develop healthy eating habits because you won’t be experiencing hunger, which can often prompt people to make poor food decisions.

Better Endurance

As you begin to lose weight, you will be able to exercise more easily and breathe more freely. You will be able to work out longer and harder, using your extra energy reserves to burn even more fat. HCG injections not only help you quickly lose weight, but they also give you the added benefit of getting you back on track to regular exercise more easily.

Look and Feel Great

You will see amazing results if you see the HCG diet through to its end. You will find that you are losing weight faster than you ever thought possible. You will look great and feel great. Once you are on the path to health and wellness, you can continue with a healthy diet and a routine exercise program to maintain your weight loss.

    Ever since I became pregnant, I grew fat and unhealthy, so I think an energy increase while I lose weight as you mentioned is a great advantage to help me do my motherly duties throughout the day. Healthy weight reduction as you say is a really rare and ideal benefit that I want to get since I don’t want to lose weight and stay unhealthy. If the benefit of having no associated hunger like you suggest is true, then I see no reason as to why I should not try it and consult a doctor about this next week.

      Thank you for taking the time to respond to our blog. The HCG diet has been available since the late 1940s. It’s safe, very successful, and you burn only your “bad” fat…the fat we don’t want! Yes, it is true that the appetite is suppressed and one feels very full on very small amounts of food. We use Dr. Simeone’s protocol. He is the doctor who discovered this diet in Florence, Italy. I recommend to all of our clients that they download his manuscript to read more about the diet. His explanation is simple and clear. Please feel free to call me anytime or to come in for a complimentary consultation to discuss the program. Sincerely, Theresa, 617-367-1900

    Are there any side effects when you stop the injections? Do you have to taper off? Also for women that are in their early forties and have no children does it make you more fertile?

    • Nancy Regan on April 15, 2020 at 11:02 am

      Thanks for your questions. There are no side effects. The amount of HCG injected is minimal, so no tapering off is required. For the same reason, HCG does not change a person’s hormonal balance for fertility.
