How does HCG Work?
Most calorie counters know that one pound of fat is equivalent
to 3,500 calories. Jogging one mile burns about 100 calories. If
you're 50 pounds overweight, you need to jog from San Francisco
to Dallas (1,750 miles) to mathematically burn 50 pounds.
However, if weight were lost that easily, many more Americans
would be jogging from coast to coast.
Many Americans work out regularly and burn the calories but can't seem to lose the weight. The reason why? They are burning the wrong calories.
To explain, there are three types of fats in the human body:
Structural fat: this fills the gaps between organs and acts as a
sort of "packing material" for the body.
Normal reserves: the body draws upon this fat when nutritional intake is less than what the body demands.
Abnormal fat: abnormal and excessive accumulations are fixed deposits of fats throughout the body and cause obesity. The body is unable to draw on this fat in emergencies.
When exercising or restricting food intake, the body relies on and consumes the normal fat reserves. The body cannot access the abnormal fat accumulations. The use of the HCG hormone releases abnormal fat deposits and makes the fat available for consumption by the body.
Patients on our HCG program lose about one pound per day. Because the HCG hormone makes the abnormal fat available, the body begins living off the fat – the fat provides a source of energy, just as food does. Patients are instructed to reduce food to 500 calories per day, however, hunger is not noticed because 3,500 additional calories are consumed each day by the body. The results: patients lose about one pound per day while using the HCG hormone.
HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
