hCG Diet -Drop kilos with these drops

Posted by Gerhard Fourie on

Written on the 11 April 2016 by The Compounding Team

Obesity is a condition where a person has accumulated so much body fat that it might have a negative effect on their health. If a person's bodyweight is at least 20% higher than it should be, he or she is considered obese. If your Body Mass Index (BMI) is between 25 and 29.9 you are considered overweight. Jan 11, 2016. [Find your BMI here]

Key facts

  • Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980.
  • In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these, over 600 million were obese.
  • 39% of adults aged 18 years and over, were overweight in 2014, and 13% were obese.
  • Most of the world's population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
  • 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2013.
  • Obesity is preventable.

If these statistics worry you and you are concerned about your weight, why not contact Your Solution Compounding Pharmacy on 1300 900 939 for a free consultation, and more information about the hCG diet, or visit us at 1/6 Pine Rivers Office Park, 205 Leitchs Rd. Brendale, QLD.

Why do people become obese?
Let's look at some of the most common reasons:

Consuming too many calories
Today more than ever before, more people eat too much. One would expect this increase in calories to consist of fat - not so! Most of the increased food consumption consists of carbohydrates, (sugars). Increased consumption of sweetened drinks has contributed significantly to the raised carbohydrate intake of most young adults over the last three decades. The consumption of fast-foods has tripled over the same period.

Leading a sedentary lifestyle
With the arrival of televisions, computers, video games, remote controls, washing machines, dish washers and other modern convenience devices, people commonly are leading a much more sedentary lifestyle compared to their parents and grandparents. Some decades ago shopping consisted of walking down the road to the high street where one could find the grocers, bakers, banks, etc. As large supermarkets serving large communities and shopping malls started to appear, people moved from using their feet to driving their cars to get their provisions. The less you move around the fewer calories you burn. However, this is not only a question of calories. Physical activity has an effect on how your hormones work, and hormones have an effect on how your body deals with food. Several studies have shown that physical activity has a beneficial effect on your insulin levels - keeping them stable. Unstable insulin levels are closely associated with weight gain.

Not sleeping enough
Research at the Warwick Medical School, at the University of Warwick, suggests that if you do not sleep enough, your risk of becoming obese doubles. This risk applies to both adults and children. Reviewed evidence from over 28,000 children and 15,000 adults clearly showed that sleep deprivation significantly increased obesity risk in both groups.
Sleep deprivation may lead to obesity through increased appetite as a result of hormonal changes. Not sleep enough produce excessive Ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite. Lack of sleep also results in less Leptin production, a hormone that suppresses appetite.

Endocrine disruptors, such as some foods that interfere with lipid metabolism
A team study from the University of Barcelona published in the journal for Hepatology, provides clues to the molecular mechanism through which fructose, (a type of sugar), in beverages may alter lipid energy metabolism, and cause fatty liver and metabolic syndrome. In epidemiological studies in humans, the effect of the intake of fructose-sweetened beverages also seems to be more intense in women.

Fructose effect on the brain may promote obesity
Researchers from Yale University School of Medicine compared the effects of fructose and glucose on the brain with MRI scans and found that regions in the brain that regulate appetite became active when people consumed glucose, and released hormones that produce feelings of satiety, (fullness), but remained inactive when they ingested fructose (e.g. Consuming fructose sugar laden beverages). In other words, only when those regions become active, they, the hormones, will tell you to stop eating.

Medications
Some patients experience that certain treatments with modern, more sophisticated medications, have the potential to boost appetite, cause bloating or slow the metabolism; again stressing the need for balanced calorie consumption and exercise.

Self-perpetuating obesity
The longer a person is overweight, the harder it becomes to lose weight. Researchers from the University of Michigan and the National Council of Science and Technology (COINCET) in Argentina, reported in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, [that], obesity seems to become a self-perpetuating state. A model demonstrated that obesity is in part a self-perpetuating disorder and the results further emphasize the importance of early intervention in childhood to try to prevent the condition whose effects can last a lifetime. In addition, research published in the journal Nature Communications in 2015 suggests that weight loss is harder when we carry more fat. Scientists suggest that the more fat we carry, the more our bodies appear to produce a protein that blocks our ability to burn fat.

Obesity gene
A faulty gene, called FTO, makes 1 in every 6 people overeat, a team of scientists from University College London reported in the Journal of Clinical Investigation (July 2013 issue).

Hope with hCG

A successful diet plan needs to be easy to follow, shows rapid, measurable weight loss, and helps to lose fat - not muscle. It must be safe, and the plan must allow for long-term weight control. Hence the increasingly popular use of human Chorionic Gonadropin, (hCG), as a weight-loss supplement.

The YSCP hCG Diet is a doctor's prescription assisted weight loss program and has a hCG Diet Support Program that works in conjunction and under supervision of your doctor.

If you are interested in the hCG Diet Program, but do not have a doctor's prescription yet, please contact Your Solution Compounding Pharmacy on 1300 900 939 for a free consultation, and more information about the hCG diet, or visit us at 1/6 Pine Rivers Office Park, 205 Leitchs Rd. Brendale, QLD. We have a full time counsellor employed, (trained in the hCG weight loss diet protocol and counselling), to help you register, and advise you throughout the process.
