The controversy of HCG weight loss

If you Google HCG weight loss, what comes up is a bewildering mixture of claims — that it is proven highly effective, completely ineffective, dangerous, homeopathic, that people have lost weight on it and that it does not cause weight loss. The legitimate objections to HCG arise not from the hormone itself (human chorionic gonadotropin) but from the way in which it is often packaged, sold and administered. Vendors sell pills online or over the counter that they claim contain HCG, but in fact contain little to none of the hormone. This is especially true of pills labeled “homeopathic.” Consider this term a warning label, and stay away from it.

Some of these pills are actually dangerous to take. Human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy, is not and cannot be toxic — but like any medicine, it can be contaminated, especially if it is manufactured in countries without the protection of U.S. regulations.

Finally, even in cases where real and safe medicine is involved, the use of it is not always properly supervised. Any form of weight loss where you lose up to a pound a day puts a certain amount of stress on the body, and should be carefully monitored by a medical clinic in case of side effects.

How HCG weight loss works

In a pregnant woman, human chorionic gonadotropin regulates the metabolism of the mother to help her burn her own fat for energy. It does the same for anyone injected with it. In an HCG weight loss program, what actually causes the weight loss is the diet, which consists of as little as 500 calories a day from a carefully planned menu. What the hormone does is make it possible to stick to the diet while remaining active.

Genuine HCG weight loss in Matthews, NC

If you want to try HCG weight loss, settle for nothing less than a real medical plan supervised by a bricks-and-mortar medical facility who will check on your health regularly. The Conner Clinic in Matthews, NC, has two HCG weight loss programs, both with a 95 percent success rate — a 23-day program for those who want to lose up to 15 pounds, and a 43-day program for those who want to lose 20 to 40 pounds.

Key to these programs are staff support, weekly HCG weight loss injections and a guidebook for patients that includes low-calorie menus. Once you have completed the program, the medical staff will use the FDA-approved Medgem to calculate your new metabolic rate, so that you will know exactly how many calories per day you need to keep the pounds off and remain healthy at your new weight. (This is the same equipment used on The Biggest Loser.)  If you want to try real HCG weight loss, call today.
