Welcome to our HCG blog. You will find recipes, tips, suggestions, etc. on this site. We have been on the HCG diet and wish to share our experience and successes with you. I hope we can inspire and motivate someone through this blogging. Good luck to all!
What IS HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin)? Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a natural occurring hormone found in the placenta shortly after conception in the first trimester of pregnancy. It is a protein hormone known as a peptide. Found in the blood stream, HCG helps reset hypothalamus and trigger signals for the human body to begin breaking down reserve body fats as a primary fuel source. Dr. Simeons findings showed that these signals occur when the body experiences a low calorie diet. HCG is also known to send out signals to conserve and maintain lean body mass, your muscles. HCG tricks your body into thinking it is consuming its needed daily allotment of calories. Replacing ingested calories with stored fat calories.

5 lbs., 10 lbs., 15 lbs or more?
If you have only a few pounds to lose, or just want to do the minimum protocol, it is IMPERATIVE that you do a MINIMUM of 26 days on the protocol, or you could easily gain the weight back!
Here is Tom 55 lbs. lighter and me 43 lbs. lighter. Tom completed 2 protocols. The first one was 8 weeks long and the second only 3 weeks. Not bad! I did 6 weeks on my first protocol and I'm still on my 2nd with only 4 more weeks to go, which will make this one an 8 week protocol for me. Yay!!!
Increasing your water intake from 2 to 3 quarts a day is a good plateau breaker.
