Dr. Oz on HCG Weight Loss

Posted on: June 12th, 2013 by admin 1 Comment

weight loss with HCG A bit ago, Dr. Oz did an episode about HCG and how it can contribute to weight loss. Let’s take some time now to talk about that episode and what he found out to be the truth on the subject of HCG weight loss.

Many diets built around this hormone promise that you can lose a pound a day. This can result in a significant amount of weight loss in a very short period of time. However, Dr. Oz was skeptical so he looked into it further. First, he looked at the history of the hormone. It was first attributed to weight loss in the 1950s, where it was found that HCG, or the hormone produced during pregnancy to ensure the fetus gets enough nutrients, help to the body metabolize fat faster. It also acts as an appetite suppressant, making it much easier for people to adhere to the strict low-calorie diet portion of this weight loss plan. Often, people have to stick to a diet of just 500 calories a day, which is much lower than what is typically recommended by doctors.

What’s important to note, is that many over-the-counter supplements that state they contain HCG actually don’t. This will not help you achieve HCG weight loss in any way. In order to get this hormone, you need to get it by prescription and it is usually administered through injection.

Dr. Oz wasn’t thrilled about the idea of having patients limit themselves to just 500 calories a day, but a doctor who actually prescribes the HCG weight loss diet noted that it is possible and safe because you’re burning fat stores. So, you are getting enough nutrients and enough calories to live on because you’re burning the fat you already have. This is usually only recommended for people who are rather overweight. This isn’t the best option for someone who is just a little bit overweight

He even spoke with several people who have been on the diet and learned that the side effects weren’t very extreme and that real world experience showed that hCG does actually reduce appetite, even though there is no scientific reason why it would do this. He also found out that HCG administered in drop form does not contain enough of the hormone to be effective. The only effective dose available is through prescription only by injection.

Hopefully this information on hCG weight loss has been helpful to you. It involves your health, after all.
