Why do I Need HCG during the Very Low Calories Diet?

Why do I Need HCG during the Very Low Calories Diet?

The human body is not designed to survive on such a very low calorie diet. When you try to lose weight quickly by cutting back on your calorie intake, your body will react by entering into a starvation mode. Your body will burn fewer calories to protect its fat storage. If you use the starvation diet when trying to achieve a faster weight loss, your body will only burn muscle mass first rather than abnormal fat. You will end up having a higher body fat ratio than before you start dieting because your muscle has been consumed and replaced with fat. However, this is not the case with the HCG Diet-a combination of a very low calorie diet with HCG injections.

Here’s what you need to know about the HCG Diet


The HCG diet is consists of a low calorie intake but with a human chorionic gonadotropin or HCG helper to help you lose weight faster. The use of HCG injection in the HCG Diet first came into use as a weight loss aid in the early 1950s. It was designed by a British physician in conjunction with a very low calorie diet. The human chorionic gonadotropin is produced in the placenta during pregnancy women. The HCG plays several roles in the fetal cycle and as s fertility support when given at high dosage.

Can I lose just as much weight without the HCG?

Medical experts indicate that the use of HCG without a strict diet restriction won’t give you the same result as you want. You won’t either be getting the result that you want when you do the very low calorie diet without the HCG in your system.

From the book Pounds and Inches, Dr. Simeon said “What so many investigators seem to overlook is that HCG as such has no weight-reducing action whatsoever, nor has this ever been claimed to be the case. In fact, those quite exceptional patients who have the willpower to stay on a 500 calorie diet for forty days without HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) often lose more weight than those who are receiving it, but they look drawn and haggard and regain their weight rapidly as soon as they stop dieting, because they have depleted normal fat reserves. The function of HCG is exclusively to make drastic reduction over a short period of time safe, comfortable and entirely confined to abnormal fat deposits.

Here is the total explanation of his passage if you don’t want to read it over and over again. You will surely lose weight in both however, the difference between the very calorie diet with and without the hormone is that:

Very low calorie diet WITH HCG

  • You will see drastic weight loss over a short time
  • It is safe and comfortably
  • Entirely confined to abnormal fat deposits

Very low calorie diet WITHOUT HCG

  • You are likely to lose more weight compared with having the hormone in your system (Of course you will lose because you only eat 500 calories a day!)
  • Only very few can survive doing the very low calorie diet without the HCG. Only those who are quite exceptional and with exceptional willpower
  • After the diet, you’ll look drawn and haggard as you only lose muscle mass and structural fat
  • You will regain weight quickly as soon as you stop dieting because of the depleted normal fat reserves.

It’s not really a good idea to try doing the HCG diet without the hormone. It’s not effective and you are more likely to experience many symptoms. On a recent large study conducted, dieters on a very low calorie diet without the hormone experiences:

  • Fatigue
  • Very low blood sugar
  • Constant hunger
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Marked reduction in physical activity
  • Marked weakness during physical activity
  • Being cold
  • Decreased metabolism by 30%
  • Decreased interest in sex

The HCG injection is proven to help your body metabolize fat faster and to make the low calorie diet more tolerable. Injecting the hormone is a very important part of the diet that cannot be left out without consequences. Here’s how the HCG hormone helps you lose weight faster:

  1. The hormone will help metabolize abnormal fat: Your body will metabolize abnormal fats when you inject HCG. The hormone specifically targets the abnormal fats so your body can metabolize it as a primary source of fuel. Without the HCG, your body will burn mostly your muscle mass, structural fat, and a little of unwanted fat. Several studies have found that HCG has a protective effect on muscle mass while you are losing weight.
  2. Reduce hunger symptoms: The very low calorie diet phase is just 3 to 6 weeks long but it can be quite a challenging attempt if you will do this without the hormone. The hormone will reduce hunger and fatigue symptoms during the very low calorie diet. It will make your diet more tolerable and easier to complete. Without the hormone, you’ll find it very difficult to go through the second phase.
  3. Prevents your body from undergoing starvation mode: The hormone will keep your muscle tissue lean and will keep the fat that protects your vital organs.
  4. Reduce headaches, cravings, and fatigue: The use of HCG reduces headaches, cravings and fatigue normally associated with a very low calorie diet. The hormone modulates the brain’s hypothalamic regulatory centers and resets the body’s metabolism.

What’s the bottom line?

  • Very low calorie diet with HCG will allow your body to metabolize stored fats and preserve lean muscle mass.
  • Very low calorie diet without the HCG will result in a sagging skin all because of losing lean muscle mass and its structural support.
  • Very low calorie diet without the HCG will not access stored fats in the hard to lose area thus weight loss will be seen in undesirable areas of your body such as the face, legs, lower arm, and heels.

    Are injections better than the sublingual drops?

  • Jan Marie Luna

    Whether you choose injections or drops is based on your personal preference. Though many would prefer injections because it is easier to dose and is done only once a day. Doing it sublingually is sometimes harder to figure out since a lot of factor influences it, like how you are able to absorb it and how long you hold it under your tongue, among others. But still, at the end of it all, it would still be based on your preference and to which method you’ll be able to stick with.
