What is hCG?

Often people ask, what is hCG and how does the diet work? First, the hCG diet is not new, it was discovered in 1954 by Dr. Simeons, he discovered that a natural hormone found in the body called human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) could accelerate fat mobilization from certain areas of the body, if combined with a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). hCG has the effect of “unlocking” the body’s fat stores so that the metabolism can burn these energy reserves to power daily bodily functions. This in turn helps to maintain one’s muscle mass during weight loss. Healthy dietary lifestyle changes begin to increase the body’s metabolism, which can then more efficiently metabolize and remove body fat with the help of hCG.

hCG may also help to reshape the body’s fat deposits, particularly targeting the abdomen, buttocks, upper thighs, neck and face. It has also been suggested that hCG plays a role in establishing a new weight “set point” for the body, making one less likely to return to one’s previous body weight.

Those who have taken hCG while dieting, report that it is much easier to stay on the diet and they seem to lose inches rapidly from the primary fat stores, in particular: the belly, buttocks and thighs. There have been no reported adverse side effects to this substance.

No other weight loss program addresses and corrects low metabolism, intense and constant hunger, or emotional eating and food cravings. The hCG program’s goal is to reset your metabolism to a normal level. Your physical hunger is reset to the normal level. Emotional eating issues and food cravings are also reset. Ultimately, when you finish this protocol you will be able to be a normal person in relation to your eating and weight. Your hunger will be completely normalized. Your body will burn the food you eat, so that it does not turn to fat. Your hunger and appetite mechanism will be regular without food cravings.

The IAPAM is the leading physician hCG for weight loss program provider in the world. With over 55,000 patients successfully losing weight on the IAPAM hCG Protocol, you can be assured physicians trained by the IAPAM can safely administer the hCG diet protocol. The basis of the IAPAM’s protocol is the original Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches manuscript.

How it Works

Your friends and family are certainly going to ask how the hCG protocol and diet work. They will no doubt be amazed at how anyone can survive on 500 calories of protein and vegetables (with a piece of fruit or two per day).

A benefit to the use of hCG, is that it releases about 1,500-4,000 calories a day into your system. You add that to the 500 calories you’re eating, and your body thinks it’s taking in 2,000+ calories a day. The result is you are not hungry, and your body doesn’t go into starvation mode. Dr. Simeons found that eating 500 (or less) calories per day is the optimum for weight loss. If you eat an extra 100-200 calories, you will not lose, and have a high likelihood of gaining weight. Why? While your body is under the influence of hCG, it’s considered an “open system.” Which means even a tiny bit of extra starch or sugar can result in an immediate 2-3 lbs weight gain. Another benefit to completing the hCG protocol is that it may reset your metabolism to a “normal” level, allowing you to actually eat more food, without gaining weight.
