I, myself, asked this question so I completely understand the confusion surrounding this seemingly mysterious acronym. I definitely had a hearty chuckle at my own expense when I received my answer. Human Chorionic Gonadtropin...that’s a mouthful and, also, what is that? You’re probably well ahead of me at this point and you know exactly where I’m going with this. Although I was in my 40’s, thought I knew a lot about my body and I’d given birth twice, I somehow managed to avoid learning a single thing about HCG. Ok, I know the suspense is killing you! HCG is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. What is interesting is that it has been discovered is that this hormone can be very successful in helping your body retain muscle mass while losing weight quickly with the diet portion of the HCG program. We absolutely love seeing these astonishing transformations at Dream Spa Medical. Personally, I love getting to know people and getting to root if why you are where you are. My goal is to help you lose weight but, more importantly, to focus on your happiness. If you’re happy, all the people you love will benefit! We are just scratching the surface here! I wanted to introduce you all to each piece of this diet program slowly so that as you move through this HCG blog you do not feel overwhelmed. You will learn without even trying. Your homework this week is to pay attention to all of the different emotions you have when you see, eat or think about different foods and beverages. This is important because exploring your relationship with food is the first step!
Wishing you a week of stellar self-awareness! - Jenny
