Dr Oz Weight Loss, Dr Oz Weight Loss. HCG Diet combines extreme calorie restriction – typically 500 calories a day of unprocessed organic foods – with daily doses of a pregnancy-related hormone called human chorionic gondatropin, also known as HCG. The hormone is typically administered through injections or drops under the tongue.

The diet is not approved by the FDA, and is not cheap. A month of syringes and the hormone can run more than one thousand dollars, the New York Times.

The diet advocates say patients may lose up to one pound per day without feeling tired or hungry. And, they insist, in the diet people can lose fat in places normally resistant to diet, stomach, arms and thighs.

Opponents say those claims are largely unproven and that the injections can be risky. They insist that any weight loss comes mainly from the power plan near starvation.

But try telling that to the doctors who claim to have seen action in the diet.

“Doctors around the country have seen people lose a huge amount of weight with these things, and can not afford to ignore that.” Dr. Lionel Bissoon, New York specializes in weight loss based in the city, the Times said.

Other experts find that kind of anecdotal evidence less convincing.

“I do not recommend that you take to help people lose weight,” said Dr. Sam Klein, a professor of medicine and nutritional science at Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis KSDK news. “Of course, if you eat 500 calories a day, you will lose weight the question is what will allow hCG to adhere to the diet more effective than no hCG, and randomized controlled trials. – All the scientific data – suggests that is the case. ”

Decades of research seem to suggest that dieters consuming just 500 calories a day typically recover most or all of the weight once the diet ends. And some experts are also wary of the potential of the diet of HCG to cause health problems. Eating less than 500 calories a day can make it difficult to meet the daily nutritional goals, forcing the body to burn muscle tissue instead of fat, according to WebMD. And Dr. Oz says on its website that people in the diet may experience hair loss and constipation and gallstones – a painful condition that often requires surgery.
