The Popularity of HCG Diet
The very popular, yet controversial method of using human chorionic gontatropin (HCG) injection with diet has gained astounding popularity. This was even highlighted on the Dr. OZ television show which increased its popularity. It is controversial in that some weight loss experts feel that the only reason one looses weight is that the diet is extremely low calorie. They state that anyone who consumes only 500 calories a day is destined to lose a lot of weight.
Low Caloric Intake with HCG
This of course is true, anyone who consumes that low calorie diet with or without HCG will lose weight no question about it. Yet there may be more going on than simple weight loss due to restricted caloric intake. The thinking is that the HCG preserves muscle mass and in fact there is some new scientific evidence that this may turn out to be the case. Another benefit may well be the fact that the hormone will decrease appetite so that makes it easier to stay on such a diet. Yet this phenomenon also happens in other diets which do not use HCG. The Atkins diet, a high protein virtually no carb diet and one will also lose their appetite after a few days. Never the less we believe the HCG injection does curve the hunger. The exact mechanism has not been worked out.
Muscle Mass and HCG
Muscle mass is very important in weight loss for one simple fact. Resting muscle burns calories while doing nothing but sitting still. Fat when sedative does nothing and virtually no calories are burned by your fat due to its low metabolic state. Bottom line is the more muscle mass you have the more calories you will burn, otherwise known as you basal resting metabolic rate.
There are many variations of the HCG diet regarding what you can eat, yet there are diets we can suggest or you can find one that is more suited to you. The primary concern is that your caloric intake is very low to 500 calories a day for strict adherence.
