Homeopathic HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin is a substance that is normally secreted by a woman during the early months of pregnancy. This substance has been used for years by those who want to lose weight in an injectable form under the care of a weight loss physician. The issues with this form include the fact that it is hard to get. Many people are unable to get a prescription for it. If they can get a prescription, many times they have to go to pharmacies outside the United States to get the prescription filled. This can take up to two months to get the HCG back to the patient. Homeopathic HCG can be obtained in the United States without a prescription for use. This makes it much easier for people who want to use this substance in order to lose weight.
Homeopathic preparations are made by diluting the substance and rendering it so that it is able to be used sublingually or taken orally. This makes the substance much weaker than the injectable form however it can still be useful for people that want to lose weight in amounts of up to two pounds per week. There are popular diets that are available now that are proponents of HCG. The most popular would be Dr. Simeons diet. He has a diet called The Weight Loss Cure. There is a free electronic book online that can be downloaded with the diet and all the information on this diet available for anyone who is interested in learning more concerning this.
The premise of this diet is as follows. The first day the person eats as much as they want gorging if they feel like it. They are allowed to eat as much fat as they would like. They also take the sublingual homeopathic HCG that day. The second day they consume as much food as they would like and take the HCG as well. The third day up until day 23 they limit their intake to 500 calories a day and take the homeopathic HCG as directed by the diet. The homeopathic HCG is designed to increase the metabolism and to reduce the appetite and cravings so that the person is not hungry on the limited amount of calories that they are allowed on the diet.
On days 24, 25, and 26 they take HCG and then stop taking it. For the next three weeks they must remain on a diet with no sugars or starches. They follow up their diet during weeks four through six off the HCG, as they slowly start to add sugars and starches back into the diet. It is recommend to follow the guidelines of the diet on adding back foods into the diet and to set up a maintenance diet plan so that they do not gain back the weight that they have lost while dieting.
There are certain cosmetics and other skin care products that are not allowed to be used while on this diet as it is stated that fats can be absorbed through the skin while on this diet and taking the HCG. It is also recommended that the person use gloves while handling any type of meat or other food substance that contains any fat substance so that they do not absorb fat through their hands while doing so.
This is a very strict diet and a very limited calorie count for a long period of time. This could lead to some problems and issues due to lack of nutrition during this period of time. It is recommended to get the approval of a weight loss physician or other medical professional prior to starting any severe weight loss program such as this due to the possible complications that can occur on a diet such as this.
