HCG Weight Loss: Myth or Fact? These Tidbits Could Disturb You!
HCG weight loss has been one of the most contested topics in nowadays’ medical debates. Many doctors and patients trust HCG injections are a fast and safe way to lose weight, whereas other former HCG dieters and physicians are trying to warn people about the ineffectiveness and risks of this hormone-based diet. But is HCG a myth or a fact? Well, that’s for you to decide, and if you feel you don’t know enough, then going through the piece of info below will be helpful.
As you might have already known, HCG injections release Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone that uses body fat to strengthen the placenta during pregnancy. This is how its weight loss effects are supposed to be explained. However, there are many doctors who reject the effectiveness of HCG in women who are not pregnant, since the hormone would be ignored or somehow “deactivated” by the human body mechanisms. They see the loss of appetite as “placebo” (if you really believe HCG injections will reduce your appetite, you will unconsciously convince yourself you’re not hungry!). According to the “NO” side of the debate, injecting HCG would rather cause unwanted side effects, since these quantities would generate unnatural, forced chemical response from the entire organism.
If you want to go with “YES”, you will find many online testimonials from people who have successfully obtained results (you will have to make sure these online sources are reliable, though). What’s more, you can even find HCG weight loss clinics that offer long term, hormone-based weight loss programs. And it’s fair to say that if HCG based weight loss programs hadn’t been effective, these clinics wouldn’t have survived. So most “patients” were fully satisfied with the results. And the HCG diet has been around for about 30 years…
There are many doctors (such as Dr. Rima Laibow; website: drrima.net) who can support the effectiveness of HCG with evidence based on their own experience (or their own patients’ experience!) with hormone injections. Evidence usually consists of diet journals or reports based on weigh-in charts. Have a look!
Moreover, it appears injections aren’t the only way to go through the HCG diet. If you’re afraid of needles, you can ingest HCG pills or place them sublingually. Doctors have also found arguments against this method as well, since due to its peptidic nature, HCG would be destroyed by the enzymes involved in digestion and therefore it wouldn’t be assimilated. We can’t tell for sure if HCG weight loss is an option for everybody; your organism is unique, and the decision is all yours!
