What is hCG?
hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a natural hormone produced in large quantities during pregnancy to ensure proper nutrients to a developing baby. hCG is what triggers the hypothalamus to mobilize stored fat into the bloodstream to be used as “food”. It is believed to reset your metabolism and to protect your body’s good fat and keep muscle tissue from breaking down (which occurs in other low-calorie diets without the use of hCG).
How does hCG work?
hCG is taken orally, under the tongue to be rapidly absorbed which allows a person to subsist more on their stored fat than on what they eat. It triggers the body to provide a constant flow of “food” received from the fat that your body is breaking down and using. This apparently means that the fat content is liquefied by the hCG, allowing it to be released into the blood stream. One pound of body fat stores upwards of 2000 calories; once body fat is made fluid, nutrition can be released to the bloodstream, reducing hunger, and waste flushed from the system. Calories provided on an even consistent level improves metabolism. With Dr. Simeons’ diet (500 calories a day) women were shown to lose weight at a rate of 1/2 to 3/4 pounds per day and men at a rate of 1/2 to 1 1/2 pounds per day.
