How the HCG Diet Works

HCG is the pregnancy hormone. When present within your blood, it “tricks” your body into thinking that you’re “pregnant”. This changes your metabolism. When combined with a very low calorie diet, it forces your body to utilize the stored nutrients stored within your body. It does this because naturally it wants to “feed the baby” inside of you. However, there is no baby; it just thinks there is and this physiologic change is what works to mobilize the abnormal deposits of fat in your body for nutrition. Thus, when these fat stores are being utilized, the weight drops precipitously. It is not uncommon to lose one to two pounds a day on this diet.
