What is the HCG diet plan?
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone present in both males and females. It is the hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy.
During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman's metabolic functions. In non-pregnant persons, research suggests HCG similarly increases the metabolism and promotes lipolytic (fat burning) activity.
The use of HCG as a diet aid was first reported in an article published by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in 1954. The report did gain some attention at that time, but it took several years before the use of HCG with dieting really started to catch on. Today, an increasing number of dieters are turning to HCG to help them lose those unwanted pounds.
Dr. Simeons noticed that his patients could drastically reduce their caloric intake without experiencing irritability, hunger pains, headaches, or weakness while also taking HCG. As Dr. Simeons continued his research, he found that an HCG injection did more than just help his patients lose weight. In fact, he found that the injections also helped to naturally reshape his patient's bodies even if they did not engage in exercise while on the diet. Dr. Simeons concluded that this was because the patients lost their fat tissue from adipose tissue accumulations, which made changes in the body shape more visible. What people were losing wasn't simply weight, but fat, a particular kind of fat.
Burning off fat with the HCG weight loss diet
We generally think of fat as just "fat," but in fact there are three distinct kinds of fat, two of which we need, and one we don't. If you've tried dieting, perhaps diet after diet, and found that the weight comes back, it's because diets can't rid us of the one kind of fat that most needs to be eliminated.
Of the three kinds of fat, structural fat is essential because it cushions our organs. Then there's the kind of fat that gives us a reserve of energy, fueling the body between meals.
But a third kind of fat-the unsightly fat that ruins our appearance-is totally unhealthy. This unwanted fat is not only unhealthy, it just happens to be almost impossible to lose. It can be mobilized only in times of starvation and pregnancy.
In a non-pregnant state, HCG as a weight-loss aid helps reduce the craving for food by making stored fat available for metabolism, thus aiding in the ability to adhere to a rigid diet program. HCG accesses unnecessary fat stored in the body just as it does in early pregnancy. Abnormal fat deposits disappear; the double chin, potbelly and fat around hips and thighs are the first to go. HCG does not deplete subcutaneous or other essential fat.
The genius of Dr. Simeons was to recognize that HCG triggers the body to burn this type of fat. It appears to reset the hypothalamus gland, along with areas of the brain that regulate a variety of hormones, bloog sugar metablosim, blood pressure, and other key body functions.
