GLOW - A Healthier And Happier YOU | What is HCG?

What is HCG?

HCG stands for human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is a hormone produced naturally by women while they are pregnant. When used in conjunction with the official 500-800 calorie HCG diet, it tells your body to release stored fat to be used as energy. As a result of burning this excess fat, users typically lose 0.5 to 1 kilogram per day, and they don’t feel hungry.


Are there any scientific studies supporting your product?

Yes. There are over 47 clinical studies documenting the weight-loss and psychological effects of the key ingredients inside HCG. These studies show that users can expect an instant reduction in hunger and, when combined with the scientifically designed diet protocol, lose about 0.5 kilograms a day and up to 15 kilograms of body weight in a month. And, equally important, these studies reported the ingredients were safe and showed no negative side effects.


Why is the 500-800 calorie diet important?

HCG causes your hypothalamus to “unlock” the fat out of the fat storage locations so it's available for use as a food source. While you are only consuming 500-800 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body. Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day. The result is your body is burning thousands of calories from stored fat off your body each day, which is the reason HCG dieters lose 0.5 to 1 kilograms of fat.


What is the hypothalamus gland?

The hypothalamus gland is located near your brain and moderates the thyroid, adrenals, endocrine system, and more importantly, your metabolic rate—thus, your fat storage.


Will I feel hungry while using HCG?

Because HCG is mobilizing your stored fat, your body will be constantly fed by the broken down fat. Most people report a feeling of being satisfied while using HCG, even though their actual food intake is only 500-800 calories.


How can I survive on only 500-800 calories a day?

HCG releases 1,500 to 4,000 calories (from your stored fat) in addition to the 500-800 calories you are eating, which is equal to a 2,000- to 4,000-calorie diet, which is why people do not feel hungry while on the HCG Diet.


Wouldn't I lose 0.5 to 1 kilograms without HCG if I were eating only 500-800 calories?

If you attempted to lose weight by eating only 500-800 calories without HCG, your body would eventually resist and “back fire” because it would think you were starving and would begin to store additional fat as a reserve energy source.


How much weight can I expect to lose?

Weight loss varies between 0.25 kilo and 1.5 kilo per day, with the average loss being 0.5 to 1 kilo per day. Interestingly, men normally fair slightly better than women.


Is it healthy to lose 0.5 to 1 kg a day with HCG?

While losing 0.5 to 1 kilos daily without the use of HCG would be unhealthy, the HCG in fact changes this. You lose fat and the weight loss comes directly from this fat loss and does not strip the body.


Are there any side effects with using HCG?

There are no documented side effects associated with HCG. Very few experience slight headaches or dizziness for the first few days, but this is rare and should subside within a day or two. Keep in mind, HCG has been used for weight loss for over 50 years, successfully, so there is plenty of evidence to back up its safety. The treatment works for almost everyone—young, old, female, or male. You can use HCG if your BMI (Body Mass Index) value is no lower than 20. Always check with your primary physician before beginning any new weight-loss program. Do NOT use HCG Activator or follow the diet plan if you are pregnant, nursing, or contemplating pregnancy.


How do I keep my goal weight once I stop using HCG?

Don't think of HCG as just a short-term diet. The HCG program helps “reset” your metabolism and your fat regulation system, so your body no longer is triggered into storing unneeded fat. But, be sure to follow the diet accordingly, as you will need to continue to be aware of the foods you take into your body and weigh yourself daily. If you’d like a customized “maintenance” program, after you’ve completed your first cycle of HCG, please call us or email us.


Will I keep the weight off, permanently?

After the HCG diet, you will find your appetite has decreased, your eating behavior will be dramatically altered, and your body will, of course, have changed its overall appearance. This is the perfect opportunity to adopt the new, healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight. You will find a minimum amount of exercise will be sufficient for maintaining a very healthy body—anything from yoga to 20 minutes of walking a day, whatever you enjoy that keeps your heart pumping vigorously. With your metabolism reset, your body will react differently to foods than before, and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat. Among the people who have followed this program, 75% to 90% have had hardly any or no difficulty maintaining their new, ideal weight.
