Human Chorionic Gonadotropin therapy, or simply the HCG diet plan, has proven to be an effective method of weight loss. Developed in the 1950s and studied by physicians and medical scientists over the decades, the HCG diet is a two-pronged approach to rapid weight loss. First, the dieter is required to consume or be injected with small doses of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone prevalent in women during pregnancy. HCG has been found to reduce cravings for food and disconnect the body’s appetite and hunger pangs. Second, the dieter needs to eat a structured, high protein diet of 500 to 800 calories a day, as prescribed by a physician or licensed dietitian. The HCG diet plan has proven effective for many people, and the diet has been growing in popularity worldwide.
