Sarasota HCG Therapy

Sarasota HCG Therapy: It can be crucial that we set the record straight over the distinction between HCG the hormone and 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 of course trying to lose weight. 

The problem that HCG gets a bad name considering that the name itself is often belongs to the HCG diet. It’s no wonder that 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) over 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 inside the HCG diet often causes metabolic damage and thyroid changes which almost always result in regaining any weight that had been lost during the diet. 
Naturally known side effects many people still decide to use the HCG diet, presumably for that temporary weight loss that results. 

At Virtue of Health we've created our own weight loss protocol that doesn't have you tied to 500 calories a day, but on a diet that is specifically customized to your body type, weight, height, gender, age, BMR, and BMI. This diet is also customized to your diet preferences whether you’re vegan, dairy free, etc, we’ll make it work for YOU.
