Losing excess body fat can be frustrating and challenging. With careful diet and exercise, you may be able to drop one or two pounds a week, but at that rate it is easy to get discouraged and give up. But what if you could lose one or two pounds per day? With that kind of success, you may feel motivated to go the distance to reach your weight loss goal!
The HCG weight loss program combines caloric restriction with hormone injections to produce a rapid loss of body fat, while keeping your muscle tissue intact. With fasting and many other quick weight loss diets, you may see the number on the scale drop rapidly because you are losing lean muscle tissue and water, while preserving your body fat. That is a problem, because muscle tissue is metabolically active, contributing to energy production, and burning up calories.
When you lose muscle, your metabolism slows down and you burn fewer calories around the clock. Many people who go on a fast will quickly regain their weight when they begin eating again, because much of the weight loss was water. However the weight they regain is water and fat, not muscle. On the HCG diet, hormone injections trick your body into retaining lean muscle tissue while burning body fat for energy.
HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, a protein-based hormone naturally produced in large amounts during the first trimester of pregnancy. HCG tips your body’s systems off to your pregnant state, initiating metabolic processes that support the growing fetus. HCG production drops off after the first trimester.
One of your body’s responses to elevated HCG levels is increased production of the hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone that are essential for fetal development. These hormones elevate metabolism and put your body in a growth-promoting state called anabolism, which fosters the retention of your lean muscle tissue.
The HCG Diet May Be the Weight Loss Solution for You!
The role of HCG injections in the HCG Diet is preservation of lean muscle tissue. The actual weight loss comes from a calorie-restricted diet of around 500 calories per day. Extreme caloric restriction will ordinarily cause your metabolism to drop, in order to offset reduced energy consumption. The HCG injections keep your metabolism high because you hang onto muscle cells that produce energy and rev up metabolism.
