The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (better known as hCG) is produced during pregnancy.  The hCG diet, was developed by a doctor who believed that a hormone found in a pregnant woman's body could help overweight men and women lose weight -- and keep that weight off after returning to a normal routine.

Positive side effects of hCG:
1. In recent years, hCG has actually proven to reduce the risks of breast cancer:

2. hCG has proven to have far lower risks than the obesity it is used to treat.

3. Increased self confidence after hCG assisted weight loss.

4. Many people have experienced the following improvements to their health while on the hCG diet: migraines subside, blood sugars stabilize, increased energy, and of course increased metabolism.
Common side effects of hCG injections for weight loss.

Side Effects of hCG :


•Mood swings and feelings of confusion


•Blood clots

•Water retention

•Breast tenderness

Because the diet also emphasizes an extreme, low-calorie diet plan of only about 500 calories daily, individuals may also experience symptoms associated with near-starvation fad diets. Many medical professionals believe 500 calories daily is not even enough to promote proper brain function. This can result in the following symptoms.

•Extreme fatigue

•Loss of mental clarity



•Head and body aches

The jury is still out on this due to its new found success.  Most health experts will tell you that 500 calories a day lowers brain function and energy levels. 
Not that this means much but the hormone was recently added as a banned substance by Major League Baseball.

Nothing beats eating healthy, exercise and a proper diet.
