HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin comes in several varieties. The first and original HCG hormone diet called for daily injections of the HCG hormone in conjunction with a low calorie diet. Now, however, there are several other methods for supplementing HCG. One of those new methods are the homeopathic HCG diet drops.
The homeopathic version of the HCG diet drops consist of a highly diluted amount of the HCG hormone that is taken several times a day. Traditionally, the HCG hormone was taken via 125(IU) injections once a day. However, the methodology behind the homeopathic HCG drops is that small amounts of HCG taken over a period of time may have the same, if not better, effect on weight loss as the original HCG injections do.
HCG stimulates a part of your brain known as the hypothalamus to release stores of fat into the bloodstream. These stores of fat are then burned off as energy throughout the day. Following a strict, low calorie diet allows for more fat to be utilized in this manner and thus resulting in larger amounts of total weight loss. The debate rages on as to which method is better, the once a day HCG injections or the homeopathic HCG diet drops. The results on both sides of the debate seem to be similar, with dieters easily losing .5lbs per day, if not more. In order to achieve this amount of weight loss, though, the HCG diet protocol must be followed to the letter.
The diet is strict, consisting of a list of approved foods that dieters are to adhere to in order to allow the HCG to take maximum effect. This diet includes meats such as beef, chicken and fish as well as vegetables and a few fruits. Many fruits and vegetables are excluded from the list, however, because they either contain too many calories or possess properties that will inhibit the weight loss effect of HCG from taking place. As a result, the diet is limited to very few foods.
If you’d like more HCG diet information, then you should check out one of the HCG diet books or search around online. There’s a wealth of information on the HCG diet out there, and after reading it you will be well-informed as to how and why the HCG diet works. The next step is simply talking to your doctor about starting on the HCG diet and how to properly prepare for and follow the protocol to elicit the best possible results.
The HCG diet injections are usually only available via prescription, so you will need your doctor to help you out there. However, due to the low levels of hormone in the homeopathic HCG diet drops, you can quite easily buy HCG online without a prescription. Be warned, though, that there are HCG diet scams out there and these people are after your money. It’s best to research reputable HCG hormone vendors, so that you can make sure you’re getting real HCG. If you’re not sure where to go for your supplements, ask around on HCG diet forums. The people there can help you avoid scams and point you in the right direction as to where to go for your HCG diet hormone supplies.
