HCG Diet: Is It Right For Me?
HCG is a hormone that is produced during pregnancy. It stimulates the production of progesterone and as a result, increases your metabolic rate. The HCG diet is a weight loss program using HCG to stimulate the brain while being on a custom diet. The aim is for the HCG to trigger the body to release stubborn, unwanted fat reserves and increase lean muscle mass.
While on the diet, your hypothalamus gland is triggered by HCG to regulate the thyroid, metabolism, adrenal glands, and fat storage, making your body shrink fat cells and make the most out of their stored nutrients.
The HCG diet is a weight loss program that should be conducted under the supervision of a certified medical provider like the specialists at Bay Area Modern Medical Center. It is an effective way to burn fat without sacrificing lean muscle. On the HCG diet, you can expect to have other positive side effects such as: having fewer cravings for fat-building foods like sweets and carbs, having a corrected appetite so you won’t over-eat, and experiencing a sexual vitality through increased libido.
Why it works
A common concern that people have when it comes to getting their dream body is that they want to lose fat and not muscle. When dieting, many people find it hard to keep on the lean muscle they worked so hard to get, and when exercising, they may eat more to build muscle and then not be able to lose the fat. HCG changes this because when it increases hormone levels in the body, it puts the body in a muscle-building state. This way, while in a caloric-deficit diet, the body does not try to get energy from destroying muscle. Instead, it targets the fat cells, resulting in nearly pure fat loss and a leaner body.
Who is the HCG diet for?
The HCG diet is a great option for people who are interested in losing weight while maintaining a lean and toned physique. The HCG could be for you if you struggle with losing weight for any of these reasons:
- You are concerned about losing muscle mass through dieting
- You have stubborn fat that won’t seem to go away
- You tend to overeat
- You crave calorie-dense foods such as sweets and carbs
- Your weight has been affecting your sex drive
- You have been struggling to find a diet that works for your body
It’s important to note that HCG doesn’t work on its own, but in conjunction with a custom diet that can be created and monitored by the specialists at Bay Area Modern Medical Center. They will completely personalize your weight loss program and offer you constant care and support. Weight loss can be a sensitive topic, and you can relax knowing that your privacy is protected by medical providers who care about you and are invested in your journey.
