Sarasota HCG Therapy : It is important that we set the record straight on the distinction between HCG the hormone plus the HCG Diet. HCG is actually just a hormone referred to 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) which make it a valuable tool when so if you are trying to lose weight. 

The problem that HCG will become bad name considering that the name itself is often of this particular 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) throughout 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 inside HCG diet often causes metabolic damage and thyroid changes which just about always result in regaining any weight which was lost during the diet. 

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