First of all, let me explain what HCG really is, so that you can understand better why taking HCG drops for weight loss is so beneficial. HCG (sometimes written as “hCG” – with the “h” in lower case) is an abbreviation for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (or Gonadotrophin, with an “h”, depending on the writer). It is a hormone found in women during pregnancy. But that doesn’t mean HCG drops for weight loss don‘t work for men. Its most important function for people who want to lose weight is, it causes the abnormal fat stored in fat deposits all around the body to get released so that your body cells can get energy from it. This way, you can get rid of the excess fat, which is extremely hard to accomplish just by working out and undereating. On top of that, the fat you lose won’t usually come back. If you think fat cells can’t be destroyed completely, you are mistaken. HCG diet is one of the few ways to maintain permanent weight loss. You know the well-known Yo-Yo effect, nothing is more frustrating than getting back the weight you’ve lost.
There are several ways you can ingest HCG into your body. You can do injections, which I also did the first time I was on the HCG diet. This is what Dr. Simeons (the inventor of this great diet) suggested in his book Pounds and Inches. But when I took the injections, I didn’t feel too comfortable about it, so in the second round I tried HCG drops for weight loss and found that it wasn’t any less effective than the shots. So HCG weight loss drops were the way go from then onwards and I got the same results as in round 1. That’s why I really recommend using the droplets, because if you inject, you have to be careful to do it into the right spots on your body (it is done atop the buttocks, to the thighs or belly). With the drops, there is no chance you could ever do anything wrong, which is not so true with injections. For example, I once hit one of my abdominal muscles (because I gave it too close to the belly button where there is not so much fat) and the pain was horrible.
To explain to you how to use hcg drops for weight loss, I will first make a clarification as to what form of HCG you should use and where to buy HCG. HCG on the market can be divided into two categories, homeopathic HCG and the “normal” pharmacy-grade rx HCG. I think both work equally, but it is mandatory to buy from trustworthy producers. Let me tell you that there is a number of scam companies on the Internet using whose products will not help you lose weight any more than just pure starving (been there, done that). You don’t want to buy HCG from them just to feed them before their fraud inferior products disappear. By the way, that’s also one of the reasons why I'm writing this article, to show people where to buy from and also on the contrary, what to avoid.
Oh my land, I digressed again from what I wanted to talk about. Yeah, how to set up and take HCG drops weight loss correctly. Well, with the drops (as opposed to injections), it is quite simple. Some consider sublingual HCG to be the most convenient way. All you have to do is to apply the drops under your tongue and wait some time before it absorbs (no more than 20 minutes). It will then start to circulate in your body and you are well on your way to lose those pounds, inches and love handles. Usually (for most oral HCG for weight loss – at least the homeopathic ones), you should do 12-15 drops, three times a day. Some people claim it is more effective to take 10 drops 6 times per day, but I don’t think it makes any difference. In the end, the decision is up to you, but I would recommend you stick to the 15-drops-three-times-per-day scheme. However, if you get non-homeopathic HCG drops (meaning the solution is not that diluted, thus the concentration of HCG is higher in such a case), most users do 166 IUs per day. Also, always remember to read the instructions that come with the HCG so you don’t miss anything important.
