Sarasota HCG Therapy : It is critical that we set the record straight within the distinction between HCG the hormone and also HCG Diet. HCG is actually just a hormone named 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 some special properties (which we will discus below) which makes it a valuable tool when needless to say trying to lose weight. 

The problem that HCG receives a bad name since the name itself is often of this particular HCG diet. Which explains 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) all 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 just about always result in regaining any weight which had been lost during the diet. 

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

At Virtue of Health we have now created our own weight loss protocol without you limited by 500 calories a day, but on a diet that is specifically customized for 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.
