What is the HCG Diet? – Ultra-low-calorie weight-loss diet usually less than 500 calories taken along with low dose HCG, which is Human chorionic gonadotropin or human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone produced during pregnancy that is made by the developing embryo after conception and later by the syncytiotrophoblast (part of the placenta).
In last couple of months I have received many queries related to availabality of homeopathic HCG for weight loss. I got SMS, emails, phone calls from various places like Chennai, Nainital, Delhi, Bombay, Madras, Kolkata, and even from Dubai to have homeopathic HCG.
Why there is an increase of search for homeopathic HCG in India and Asia continent ?
USA Today on 1/23/11 published a story that homeopathic hcg drops products that promise dramatic results in reducing excessive body weight in obese and claim to be homeopathic are sold as homeopathic hcg drops, homeopathic hcg tablets, homeopathic hcg pellets and homeopathic hcg sprays on the Web, in drugstores and at General Nutrition Centers. These homeopathic hcg products are supposed to be used in combination with a very low-calorie diet of 500 calories a day.
