What is HCG and how does it work?
HCG stands for “Human Chorionic Gonadotropin”. HCG is the protein hormone made by the human placenta in pregnancy. It increases the body’s metabolism and causes reductions of fat, and not muscle, when dieting. Weight loss depends on compliance. Average weight loss is 1/2 lb a day for women and 3/4 lb for men.
Why the 500-1000 calorie diet?
HCG is a drastic weight loss plan. This is why it is restricted to 21 or 40 days (40 day plan for women who do not menstruate). HCG releases 1000-2000 calories from stored fat daily, therefore the body only needs 500-1000 calories of additional food intake. It is important to avoid sugars and certain vegetables, like corn, on this strict diet.
Can I exercise while on HCG?
No, exercise will cause you to burn too many calories a day, which will cause your body to go into starvation mode and freeze your metabolism.
