Why HCG Weight Loss?
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that is naturally present in the body at times of pregnancy, which has shown to be effective in helping individuals lose weight when properly administered and monitored by Dr. Richichi.
The HCG diet itself utilizes doses of the hormone in addition to a strict, low-calorie diet. When used in conjunction with one another, these two tools can result in weight loss of up to 2 pounds per day*.
Many studies have been conducted on the the HCG diet and how exactly the added hormones enable the patient’s to shed weight and have concluded with positive results. The best possible outcome that patients can hope for can be achieved by working directly with Dr. Richichi to discuss how and why the HCG diet will work for them.
The Advantages of HCG
Obviously, weight loss is at the top of this list of advantages to the HCG diet. However, this is not the only positive result that patients can expect from this process.
Many people experience a gradual slow-down in their metabolism over time. Part of this process is totally natural, but it can also be worsened by ingrained habits that have disrupted the individual’s ability to efficiently process foods.
The HCG hormones work to speed the metabolism back up again. At first, this will be at an above-average level, but ideally the patient will see a huge improvement in their metabolism from the time that they started the HCG diet to after their final round of HCG hormones.
Maintaining Muscle Mass
Diets that restrict the amount of calories consumed typically result in a loss of both fat and muscle mass. This is the body’s natural response to a reduction in protein, which are often found in sugary foods.
Clearly, sugary foods are one of the first things to go in any diet, but with HCG, the metabolic shifts taking place will help to burn the extra fat without burning muscle along with it.
No Hunger Pains
HCG hormones also work to suppress the appetite, so patients experience little to no feelings of hunger. Many individuals also report that in the event that a craving did strike, they were more interested in healthy foods than in binging on fatty ones.
Keeping the Balance
Hormone imbalances can wreak havoc all across the body, and can often be a significant contributor toward poor nutritional habits. Since patients will be directly overseen by Dr. Richichi, they will be able to regulate and balance their hormone levels using HCG.
