What is hCG?
hCG is a hormone that is only found in pregnant women. It allows the body to access fat that is otherwise inaccessible during times except for extreme starvation and pregnancy. By taking hCG, the body is allowed to access the fat typically stored around problem areas such as thighs, hips, and the abdomen. The fat is propelled into the bloodstream giving the body the calories and nutrients it needs while the patient eats a very limited 500 calorie diet. Despite being found naturally only in pregnant women, the hCG diet is safe for both women and men.
