Past a certain age, losing weight stops being easy. It requires regular and prolonged exercise, a healthy diet, the right amount of sleep, and even low levels of stress. And, while it is possible to stay fit into old age, it’s an uphill battle that many people don’t have the time or energy to commit to. Even for those with the time to exercise and eat well, results are not always as immediate as they would like. Sometimes our bodies need a little boost to kick our metabolisms back into drive.
Fortunately, modern medicine has an answer for just about everything and weight loss is no exception. With hormone therapies, injections, and appetite suppressants, you can give yourself a leg up in the battle against unwanted weight. But when it comes to the universally notorious belly fat, getting rid of those last couple pounds is never as easy as you think. To finally achieve a flat stomach, what you need is human chorionic gonadotropin therapy. If you’ve never heard of this before, keep reading because it’s really quite something.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone produced by women in the early stages of pregnancy. Doctors and scientists believe it is specifically a metabolic hormone that not only helps to regulate appetite but also redistributes and targets specific types of fat within the body. This quality is what makes HCG therapy so effective at burning belly fat.
When we say it targets “belly fat,” it makes it sound as if HCG has some magical property to home in on specific parts of the body. But HCG is not magic. “Belly fat” actually refers to a type of fat within the body. Many people are unaware but fat is more than just one thing. Just as there are different types of muscle, and different types of organ tissue, there is more than one type of fat. In fact, our bodies have three types of fat.
The most common view of fat is that our bodies produce it just to store unused energy. If we consume fewer calories, then our bodies will have less energy to store as fat. But without fat, our bodies could not function properly. Fat lines all the vital organs, helping to protect them from bumps or friction. This type of fat is known as structural fat. Without it, our organs would rub against each other, causing bleeding and discomfort.
The next type of fat you should know about is subcutaneous fat. Think of subcutaneous fat as a fuel tank, holding onto energy when you are not eating. As you carry on throughout the day, your body will burn subcutaneous fat to stay active. In normal amounts, this type of fat is healthy and completely necessary.
Which brings us to the enemy—visceral fat. This type of fat is what we commonly call belly fat. It sits around our waists, hips, and thighs, where we least want it to. Unlike subcutaneous fat, which is burned regularly, visceral fat is only used in extreme situations such as starvation or when a woman becomes pregnant. This is why exercise and diet alone are usually not enough to put a stop to a gut.
Because HCG is released during pregnancy, it can target unwanted visceral fat without burning the necessary subcutaneous and structural fats. By ingesting an HCG supplement, your body will begin to naturally reshape itself, cutting inches off your waist. This hormone will also affect certain regions of the brain and the hypothalamus gland. You’ll experience lower blood pressure and higher amounts of energy throughout your day.
You will be free to cut foods out of your diet without the dreaded fatigue and moodiness often associated with starting a new diet. In fact, when paired with a nutritious and low-calorie diet, HCG becomes even more effective. In just a few short weeks, you’ll notice the effects in your wardrobe and scale but, in the long run, what you’ll really appreciate is the boost in your overall quality of life. With more energy and a lifted mood, you’ll be able to appreciate your new body more.
Before starting on any new weight loss therapy, you should always consult your doctor first. Setting up an appointment to talk about whether HCG therapy is right for you will set you on the right path. If approved, your doctor will show you how to self-administer HCG through injection or prescribe a sublingual tablet or liquid. HCG is usually combined with vitamin B12 so talk to your doctor about the formula before starting treatment.
If your goal for the summer is to drop back down a few pounds, do not let age, stress, and a slower metabolism hold you back. Starting on an approved course of human chorionic gonadotropin can put the pep back in your step and help you reach your target weight. In no time, you will be back into last year’s wardrobe ready to take on the world.
