HCG injection is a hormone that’s commonly used to treat infertility to women. It supports normal egg development in a woman’s ovary and interestingly, it also helps in increasing the sperm count in men. However, nowadays, HCG isn’t just used for reproductive health purposes. It is also proven to be effective for faster weight loss.
Why Is HCG Effective for Weight Loss
Studies, from as early as the 1950s, have shown that HCG has an amazing effect in eliminating fat cells faster on people who are in a calorie-restricted diet.
HCG has the ability to destroy the fat cells without taking nutrients from the other cells of the body. This happens because its effects are only directed to the fat cells and not to the muscle tissue. For this reason, people who use HCG lose weight alongside having lean and toned muscles. However, this is only effective with a calorie-restricted diet. This kind of diet is called the HCG Diet Protocol.
How HCG Injection Diet Protocol Works
The HCG Diet Protocol consists of four phases. Basically, a person who undergoes the HCG Diet Protocol must follow a calorie-restricted diet too. Under this program, the calorie intake per day is restricted to 500 to 800 calories per day. However, it is best to consult a dietician or a doctor about this for the best recommendation for your body.
The role of HCG in this diet is to ensure that the calories and fats in your body are properly used or burned. Using an HCG injection ensures that the essential fats will be used by your body organs for proper functioning, and the excess ones will metabolize as energy for faster weight loss.
You can, but I don't recommend it and this is why. Dose of hCG is very individual and is important to both experiencing the least hunger and best weight loss - if you pre-load your needles you will not be able to effectively adjust your dose of hCG as necessary - both at the start when you may not be sure what your best dose is just yet, and then once you find it, it's common to need to reduce your dose as you get thinner - so I prefer to leave the hCG in the bottle and draw up the hCG each on the protocol so I can have control over how much I'm injecting and have that ability to adjust as needed.
