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

The problem that HCG gets to be a bad name because the name itself is often related to the 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 during the HCG diet often causes metabolic damage and thyroid changes which nearly always result in regaining any weight which has 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.
