HCG Diet Program

HCG Diet Program

What is HCG?

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, HCG, is a hormone naturally produced by pregnant women.

How much weight will you lose?

Most HCG dieters report a loss of 1+ lbs. per day! Most individuals lose the most in the very first week, up to 10 pounds!

Why only 500 calories per day?

The HCG diet injections cause your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat already stored in your body. The 500 calories you ingest will be supplemented with about 2000 calories within your reserved fat released by your hypothalamus. It is common for mild hunger during the first few days, however this should pass and by the second week you will find tiny servings satisfying. A list of foods will be presented to you.
