What is the science behind the amazing weight loss on the HCG Diet?

Although we have all read about the amazing weight loss effect of the HCG diet, it can be helpful to dieters to gain more of an understanding as to how this phenomenal diet is able to help you lose as much as 2Ibs of fat per day, despite only following a 500 calorie per day diet plan.

How is this possible?

Numerous weight loss studies have revealed that dieters who follow low calorie diet plans tend to lose muscle tone rather than fat, and once they resume their normal eating habits, the weight piles back on again. However, the HCG diet works in a completely different way—instead of stripping your body of essential vitamins, minerals, muscle and nutrients, HCG helps you lose weight by converting fat stores to energy. So instead of feeling lifeless and lacking in energy, on the HCG diet you can expect to feel great and look amazing!

What is the science behind the HCG diet?

HCG works in conjunction with a very low calorie diet. The HCG instructs the hypothalamus to utilize fat stores in various locations around the body and release this energy into the blood stream, so although you are only consuming a maximum of 500 calories per day, you have access to thousands more calories from your fat reserves.

Stored body fat contains a massive amount of energy—1Ib of fat is the equivalent of 3500 calories—and because the body is able to metabolize fat deposits easily, you can expect to enjoy a ready supply of energy all day long. Whilst following the HCG diet, you are likely to feel incredibly energetic. This means that your fat stores will begin burning up immediately and within a week or two, your fat areas will quite literally have “melted” away as if by magic!
