Sarasota HCG Therapy : It is necessary that we set the record straight about the distinction between HCG the hormone along with 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 some special properties (which we will discus below) that make it a valuable tool when trouble with trying to lose weight. 

The problem that HCG gets a bad name because the name itself is often of this particular HCG diet. Which is 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) during 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 while in the HCG diet often causes metabolic damage and thyroid changes which almost always result in regaining any weight which was lost during the diet. 

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