A. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone is a substance, which occurs naturally in pregnant women and has the effect of releasing abnormal stored fat.
A. It works with a combination of a daily injection of the HCG hormone plus an exact diet.
A. No. During pregnancy it is produced daily in a quantity a few hundred thousand times the amount used for the treatment of obesity, yet it harms neither the mother nor the child.
A. Yes. It has been used successfully in both men and women.
A. During pregnancy, HCG is believed to help ensure that the fetus will have access to its mother’s stored fat supply, regardless of the amount of food that she eats. In overweight people, HCG seems to work by the same method—making permanently stored supplies of fat available, helping the patient adhere to the diet.
A. Although there is no dramatic weight loss without the accompanying diet, HCG usually causes a reduction in inches rather than pounds.
A. No, not with this method. Abnormal fat deposits should disappear. Double chins, pot bellies, and fat around the thighs should be the first to go. The treatment does not deplete the subcutaneous or other essential fat. The face retains its freshness and natural appearance.
A. Yes. HCG had been used in thousands of cases before it was first reported in the Medical Journal Lancet in November 1954. Since that time, it has been used in many more.
A. In a test case, weak saline solution was substituted for the HCG, unknown to the patient. Weight loss continued for about three days and then the patients complained of feeling weak or dizzy, became ravenously hungry, and declared themselves unable to continue the treatment. As soon as treatment on HCG was resumed, they again felt satisfied with their diets.
A. Usually, a loss of appetite occurs and patients notice that the severe compulsive hunger disappears completely.
