Dr Oz: HCG Shots For Weight Loss
Dr. Oz has discussed the controversial topic of HCG shots for weight loss before and he said that every time it has stirred up a lot of feelings from all sides of the conversation. The last time he talked about HCG shots for weight loss he challenged one expert to do more research and show him more evidence that it really does work. She did the research and is ready to share the results with Dr. Oz that she believes will convince him that HCG can work for weight loss.
Dr Oz: What Is HCG?
HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by a pregnant woman’s placenta that is essential to the health of her growing fetus. Many experts believe that HCG is beneficial for weight loss because it helps to suppress your appetite and increase your body’s ability to burn calories. Skeptics believe that the only reason why HCG is successful is not because of the shot at all, but rather the very strict 500 calorie per day diet that participants are put on as part of their weight loss regimen.
