hCG reduces feelings of hunger. This allows them to eat very little comfortably. Why?
The presence of HCG in the bloodstream takes the appetite away. In pregnant women, HCG often causes feelings of nausea in the early stages of pregnancy.
HCG is a pro-hormone which helps the body make more hormones. Since hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reason for weight gain, whether it’s your thyroid, or menopause (or andropause), this hormone offers help.
HCG injections have been shown to raise blood levels of HCG, so that is the more effective way of taking HCG at this time (about 20-30%). The hormone keeps you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone helps to create an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.
Why does that matter?
During a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost. Because muscle is heavy, this loss looks good on the scale because the pounds are dropping quickly. When you lose muscle, it’s bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that dieter regains weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost.
The hCG protocol, however, protects muscle from being lost. In fact, there is more of a pure fat loss, which causes a shrinking in inches and size of clothing.
The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.
At the end of a course it is almost invariably found that the girth is as many centimeters less as the number of kilograms by which the weight has been reduced.
The hCg weight loss system could indeed thus also be referred to as the inches lost system!

A remarkable aspect of the hCG weight loss system is that with your body getting the majority of the nourishment it needs from your stored fat reserves, you do not feel the hunger that would certainly result if you tried to diet by reducing calorie intake alone.
The calorie intake is the same for a small or medium height female as that for a very tall or larger male. Your body will just take more to meet its requirement from your stored reserves.
Males do tend to lose more weight than females and can also often lose weight more quickly. Females will however often lose more “inches” or reduction in measurements.
