Sarasota HCG Therapy : It is essential that we set the record straight on the difference between HCG the hormone and then the HCG Diet. HCG is actually just a hormone called 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 an impressive properties (which we will discus below) which makes it a valuable tool when that many trying to lose weight. 

The problem that HCG becomes a bad name because the name itself is often from the HCG diet. Which describes why we need to spend some time to separate 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 within the HCG diet often causes metabolic damage and thyroid changes which nearly always result in regaining any weight that was lost during the diet. 

Markets . known side effect many people still decide to use the HCG diet, presumably for any temporary weight loss that results.
