Hcg Diet Review

If your wondering what the HCG diet is, and why all the press coverage.  You will want to read this to Learn how the HCG Diet achieves rapid weight loss in a very short period of time. This diet has demonstrated some very quick results.

The HCG Diet was designed by DR Simeons. This program is a scientific breakthrough using hormone therapy in conjunction with a  low calorie diet. The HCG hormone is used to stimulate your bodies hypothalamus into freeing up the bodies fat reserves so they are easily used as an alternate energy source.

The HCG Diet requires a very low calorie intake of 500 calories or less. In normal cases 500 calorie intake would be considered dangerous,  but that is where the HCG hormone and the bodies hypothalamus become very important tools in the fight to lose weight quickly.

Diets that drastically restrict calorie intake,  risk triggering a natural survival instinct within our body. Researchers call the bodies reaction to low calorie intake,  the starvation mode. The starvation mode is launched into action when the body notices an imbalance between calorie intake in relation to calorie expenditure. Take for example the HCG Diet. The HCG Diet restricts calorie intake at 500 calories, your average male burns 2000 calories by performing just the basic daily functions. This leaves a deficit of 1500 calories. The brain realizes that at this rate starvation may occur and starts storing fat.

On the average diet the first 10lbs of weight comes off quite effortlessly. When your metabolism finally figures out the new calorie intake,  it starts to make the necessary adjustments, then you hit the weight loss barrier. On  the HCG Diet ,  with the help of the hcg hormone and the bodies hypothalamus prevents the brain from triggering the starvation mode. The  weight loss barrier is also a non factor while on the HCG Diet.

Now that the bodies natural response to reduced calorie intake is neutralized by the hcg hormone, this is where the hypothalamus plays an important role. The hypothalamus starts to free up fat stores with in the body. Now that the body isn't afraid to use up it's fat reserves,  it starts to burn fat to create energy the body needs to make up the 1500 calorie deficit.  In most cases fat around the midsection seems to be the bodies preferred  fat store as a source of energy.

Unlike most weight loss plans that promote anywhere from 1-5 lbs a week, the HCG Diet can boast an impressive 1-2 lbs a day.
