A number of my clients have come to me having heard of or having tried an HCG weight loss program in the past. I thought that it would be helpful for those who have experienced or heard of HCG in the past to understand how my program compares and is different.
HCG, is a very low-fat, very low-calorie diet. It is often used while taking either an over the counter hormone or a hormone take via injections. And while it may have worked for some it is somewhat controversial, as per the Mayo Clinic.

When you are fasting, your body needs fuel and because the glucose from food is no longer available the body turns to fat as its fuel source. When the body breaks down fat it supplies the body with “ketones”.
