Spring weather is likely to get here sooner or later. In anticipation of that, many people are trying to get their bathing suit bodies ready for the swimsuit season. A current trend is the “HCG” diet. It uses Human Chroniatic Gonadotropin Hormone, also known as the pregnancy hormone, to help people lose body fat. Patricia Grady with Agewise MD explains how it works: "So the way it works is that when used in a particular concentration it stimulates the hypothalamus to tell the body to release body fat. In conjunction with a very low calorie diet which causes the body to lose weight, not the HCG, it releases between 1500 and 2500 calories,  and lose body fat in the abdomen hips and the thighs." Grady warns that offers for "Homeopathic HCG" online are not a good idea,  because they aren't regulated and often there are no discernible amounts of the hormone in those products. She also says it's important to get advice and follow that advice on how use the HCG as a tool or just part of the overall weight loss plan. For more information, you can log onto the Agewise MD website: www.agewisemd.com.
