Are you going to be a part of the hundreds of thousands of people trying to lose weight at the start of 2012? Do you want to be successful in trying to lose weight? Going to the gym and starting a diet will lead you to weight loss, but it is a long road and definitely a hard route to go. Want an easier way to burn fat and have a healthier body for a fun and active 2012? HCG drops might be the way to go.

If you have ever heard of HCG, you probably thought it is too good to be true. So did I. Who wouldn't think it is a scam? Just take these drops a few times a day and BAM! You've lost 40 pounds in 30 days. That sounds crazy, but it's what really happens to most people who try HCG drops.

Loads of people have the same common questions. Here is a rundown of what HCG is, how it works, and about how much it'll cost you.

  • What is HCG?

HCG is a pregnancy hormone which targets abnormal fats that your body has stored over time. Following the HCG diet plan, HCG helps your body target these abnormal fats to burn as energy. Since the diet only allows for a 500 calorie per day diet, it needs some way to burn energy, so what better way to burn energy than use fats that are stored in your body that you do not need (nor want)?

  • How does it work? Is it safe?

The drops tell your body that you are not hungry, and some people even say they had to make themselves consume 500 calories in one day. It seems like it would be too difficult to shrink your diet down to 500 calories, but with the help of HCG drops, it is not as hard as it seems. If you shrink your calorie intake down to 500 calories per day, your body will have to burn fat in order to give you energy. Your body automatically burns muscle and fats that are supposed to be there, leaving you weaker than before. HCG targets bad fats only, allowing your body to safely function.

  • Will it work for me? What happens when the drops are gone?

When you complete your HCG drops, there are 2 maintenance stages. During the first maintenance stage, you increase your calorie intake while still eating the same foods. The second maintenance stage allows you to gradually add sugars and starches back into your diet.

As long as you are driven and motivated to lose weight and make it work, you will lose weight. Most HCG diet programs do not recommend you lose more than 40 pounds in 30 days, so be sure to keep track of your total weight loss. Taking before, during, and after pictures and documenting your daily weight loss will be a great way to keep track of your weight loss and see just how far you go with it.

  • How much does HCG cost?

HCG drops can cost you anywhere from $25 a bottle to upwards of $200 for a starter's kit. The kit is a great way to start out, because it gives you everything you need to know in order to lose the weight correctly and keep it off. After you use the starter kit, it is much cheaper to order it by the bottle from there on out. However, if you prefer to go the cheaper route, ordering by the bottle will save you lots of money. As with buying anything on the internet, do your research first and make sure you are ordering from a legitimate source.

Of course before starting any kind of diet, you should consult your doctor to be certain it is a safe diet for you.

GREAT Article! I have taken HCG, am currently in maintenance and Jan 9 am starting my next round! After years of trying everything that only leaves me extremely frustrated it is refreshing to finally be achieving my weightloss goals. I thought my first round of hcg drops it would be a miracle if I lost 30 lbs but around day 40 I had already hit 40 lbs lost... and I am a woman!!! lol I have maintained my weightloss and now am very excited about starting Jan 9 for my next round of hcg. BTW... I started my first round Sept 26, 2011. This Summer I can not wait to get into a swim suit and hit the beach!!! I would encourage anyone reading to do this diet. It was so invigorating to wake up every morning and be consistently smaller, to look in the mirror and watch myself shrink, to be hugged by my kids and their responses being, " WOW, mom!!! I can get my arms waaaaaay around you now :)" It has been awesome!!! Thanks Laura for a great article and I can say first hand that my experience has been exactly as you have written. Happy New Year!!! Cindy
