HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by the placenta in pregnant women and almost completely controls the metabolic function through the hypothalamus throughout the pregnancy. The HCG used in the HCG program protocols is a variation of the HCG form used for fertility treatments, and in much smaller, minute doses. HCG is a 20 day program and dieters report an average loss of 1 to 2 pounds per day. We will provide exact instructions and recommendations at no cost. After the HCG program, not only will you have lost physical weight, former HCG Dieters also report a change for the better in appetite, and a natural course of modified eating behavior. They also report this as being an ideal situation for easily transitioning into a healthy relationship with food. With all of these changes and experiences, the HCG program is the perfect opportunity to adopt that healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight.
