How HCG Works
If this is your first time hearing about the HCG diet, you’re in for a treat. The program is based on a combination of diet, exercise, and the special hormone HCG—human chorionic gonadotropin—that helps you lose weight and reset your metabolism so you don’t feel starved.
The HCG diet is best followed with the guidance of someone who understands the effect of rapid weight loss on your body. Allure Med Spa has the experts you need to take advantage of the hormone and make yourself healthier.
What is HCG?
HCG is a hormone which is naturally found in the body following pregnancy. It is produced by the placenta once it attaches to the wall of the uterus after the egg has been fertilized. However, HCG is found in both males and females and is associated with increased fertility in both sexes.
When administered in regular doses through a pill, injection or implant, HCG can reduce cravings, make you feel full more quickly and balance your hormones to improve sleep and energy.
In the mid-20th century, it was discovered that HCG could be combined with a dieting regimen to help patients rapidly lose weight. The original diet plan was strictly 500 calories per day and left people hungrier than necessary. But nowadays, the modern HCG diet as seen on the Dr. Oz show is more flexible and easier to follow.
How does the HCG diet work?
The HCG hormone is like a key that unlocks your body’s potential for losing weight. Other than the hormone, the lifestyle changes that the diet calls for are not revolutionary—the tried and true methods of a balanced diet and regular exercise are essential to anyone who wants to lose weight with HCG.
The difference is that HCG can limit your ability to feel hungry and get rid of cravings for certain junk foods. Since HCG is associated with many different bodily processes, it balances out the way your body produces and consumes energy, making it easier for you to eat the right amount of food to keep you healthy while still losing weight.
Allure Med Spa offers the HCG hormone alongside the guidance of an expert who will monitor your body closely to help you lose your ideal amount of weight. It’s simple: you take the hormone, follow the diet and exercise guidelines you agree on with your mentor, and watch the weight disappear.
