Despite all these gaudy claims, the one that got me the most was this statement from Susan Graham MD: “I have not been able to find any examples of death from the use of HCG despite having spent hours on the computer researching the issue.” This made me wonder, if she spent hours looking for deaths on the internet or what kind of scholarly research had she done on its effectiveness. She did not state any clinical evidence for any of the claims that she or the website makes. So, I decided to do the research for her and all of my readers out there seeking the truth.
You need to remember that HCG is for the most part produced by females solely during pregnancy. Some people seem to be missing this concept. If it was intended to be used in the metabolic processes for fat loss your body would produce it on its own through normal mechanisms.
Those who use Los Angeles mic injection kits to lose weight must also follow a very strict diet that amounts to that just supply the minimal nutritional requirement of the day. Sugars, very sweet fruits, processed foods and heavy starches are not to be included in the Los Angeles HCG Diet.
One of the common effects of HCG drops is weight loss. HCG directly affects the hypothalamus, a part of the brain that controls body fat. Some of the effects of HCG observed on dieters include suppressed hunger, elastic skin, and decrease in blood pressure and blood sugar. Although some dieters believe that there are no side-effects, other dieters may experience nausea, abdominal pain, blood clots and mood swings.
For example eating too salted foods the previous day (that makes your body retain more water, which leads to an illusory weight gain). After finding out, Joe starts to panic and decides to fast the whole day. The following day in the morning he discovers that he’s gained another pound, eventhough he was starving the previous day.
The HCG protocol for weight loss is one of the hottest fads right now largely due to it being mentioned in a book by a dubious author named Kevin Trudeau. I call him dubious because he has several FTC violations, has served prison time for fraud and has many unhappy customers – just do a search for his name and you’ll see for yourself.
Along with the daily shots, HCG program followers are also encouraged to follow the HCG diet diligently. The two, the hormone and the diet, work closely together to help you shed the promised one to two pounds a day. Without the diet, the HCG is useless as it is the diet which activates the metabolism changing property of the hormone. On the other hand without the hormone most dieters will probably have a hard time overcoming the challenges of the diet which restricts calorie consumption to 500 calories a day. The hormone suppresses food cravings.
