HCG Drops – do they work?

While these drops will do you no harm this is actually due to the fact that they will do absolutely nothing at all!

Any weight loss experienced will be due to the extremely low calorie diet, and while there is no argument that low calories will result in weight loss the fact is that most of the weight loss experienced from these ultra low calorie diets will be from muscle atrophy not the bum and thigh fat reduction you’re hoping for.  Muscle is active tissue and is closely correlated to metabolism i.e the greater the muscle mass the faster the metabolism, the faster the metabolism the easier it is to lose fat.

By following a diet so low in calories that you lose muscle you actually cause your metabolism to slow down.  Meaning that when the diet is over you will put all the weight back on again only what was once muscle will now be fat!

The following is taken directly from one of these popular Scam websites.

What is Biomazing™ HCG?

Biomazing™ HCG is a professional grade premium weight loss product manufactured in the United States under strict FDA regulations and guidelines. It is a hormone-free product (products containing the actual HCG hormone have been banned by the FDA), formulated for hCG dieters without any tstarches or sugars that can slow your progress during the 3 phases of the hCG diet protocol. It contains amino acids and other ingredients (see label below) that are designed to result in mobilization of fat storage while consuming 500-800 calories per day. While consuming 500-800 calories, your hypothalamus may continue releasing stored fat.

The above is taken directly from the website of one of the most popular vendors of this Scam, it clearly states that their products are hormone free. HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a Hormone !!!  Do not waste your money on this product!!!

What is the HCG Diet? Will it work?

HCG is a hormone produced in the hypothalamus gland located near the thyroid gland in your neck. This hormone is responsible for triggering the release of LH (luteinizing hormone) in males this occurs in the testes and in females this occurs in the ovaries, LH then causes the production of testosterone and sperm in men and estrogen in women as well as helping in the process of ovulation.

In this regard HCG is a potent fertility aid for both men and women though it is prescribed mostly for women.  Men who have lowered fertility from using testosterone can very effectively reverse this issue with the use of HCG either after or during their therapy.

Recently there has been a tremendous amount of press and Media Hype around what is being called the HCG diet. this is, for the most part, a scam.

It relies on very low calorie diets to deliver the bulk of the results and while for men there will be some benefit from using doctor prescribed HCG due to a small increase in Testosteron, (HCG->LH->TESTOSTERONE) with testosterone having well documented fat loss properties the person would be far better off to just use testosterone.

The same cannot so universally be said for women ie, HCG –> LH –> Estrogen, while it is true that this could have beneficial fat loss effects for older or post menopausal women in younger women an excess of estrogen will actually cause weight gain and enhance your chances of getting pregnant – which could happen even if on birth control while using HCG and will certainly not help in your weight loss efforts! Even more concerning is the homeopathic drops being passed off as HCG.
