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.
