Sarasota HCG Therapy : It is very important that we set the record straight about the distinction between HCG the hormone additionally, 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 an impressive properties (which we will discus below) making it a valuable tool when needless to say trying to lose weight. 

The problem that HCG gets to be bad name as the name itself is often associated with the HCG diet. And that's 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) through the entire 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 had been lost during the diet. 

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