One of the most effective ways of weight loss that is being pursued by dieting individuals nowadays is the hcg diet. Those who have not yet heard of it or are not familiar with it and often wonder how it works. How can a hormone that is meant for pregnancy be the reason for tremendous weight loss? How is it more effective over all the other diets that have come before it? Yes, it is a question that most of us ask when we first encounter the subject. How indeed?
The hcg diet was developed by Dr. Simeon, a doctor who specialized in obesity and weight reduction. He theorizes that in the human body, there are three types of fats. First would be the necessary fats. This type of fat is necessary for the body since it supports organs such as the kidney and the like. At the same time, it also serves as a cushion to the heart’s artery. Then there is the kind of fat that serves as fuel and can be found spread all throughout the human body. Finally, there is the surplus fat which does nothing but sits uselessly in the hard to reach areas in the body and is the cause of obesity. This type of fat, due to the nature of its location, cannot readily be transformed into energy to fuel the body.
Due to the study conducted by Dr. Simeons, it was later found out that hcg, or what we commonly call as the human chorionic gonadotropin, makes the body burn and go for those useless hard to reach fats hidden all throughout the body. By doing so, the individual burns the right kind of fat without having to suffer the effects of going on a low calorie diet and at the same time, leaves the normal fats undisrupted and safe.
Some people might meet the concept of this diet with a little bit of skepticism however, as given proof by experts, professional and other users themselves, the hcg diet has been proven to be safe and effective. It follows of course that if one has an underlying health condition, this diet or any other diet for that matter, will not be recommended due to its nature where it makes the individual go on a very low calorie diet. Other than that, everyone else can take part of this amazing program.
