Sarasota HCG Therapy

Sarasota HCG Therapy: It is critical that we set the record straight around the distinction between HCG the hormone as well as the HCG Diet. HCG is actually just a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin. It is naturally secreted in high amounts during pregnancy. In fact, the amounts that pregnant women are subjected to is much higher than any dose that most people use for weight loss (including in the HCG diet). HCG the hormone itself has impressive properties (which we will discuss below) making it a valuable tool when so if you are trying to lose weight. 

The problem that HCG gets a be bad name since the name itself is often associated with the HCG diet. Which explains why we need to spend some time separating these two ideas. The HCG diet is a combination of a sustained very low calorie diet which is coupled with HCG injections (or drops) in the weight loss phase. The problem with the HCG diet is the duration of the calorie restriction, NOT the HCG hormone itself. 

The prolonged calorie restriction from the HCG diet often causes metabolic damage and thyroid changes which just about always result in regaining any weight which had been lost during the diet.  Not surprisingly known side effects many people still decide to use the HCG diet, presumably for the temporary weight loss that results
