hCG And Garcinia Cambogia Diets Compared
hCG Comparison

If you are overweight and looking to shed both weight and size, chances are that you have considered supplementing your diet with either hCG or Garcinia Cambogia. There are similarities in the way both supplements would be taken, i.e. orally and self-administered at home, but determining which supplement is actually better for inclusion into your diet and weight loss program should be assessed by comparing the various factors that are important to the outcome.

Garcinia Cambogia is a commonly used natural weight loss supplement in the United States at present, owing to its availability and the early understanding of its beneficial nature in inducing fat and weight loss within a healthy diet. The part of Garcinia Cambogia that creates this weight loss in humans can be found within the skin of the fruit – it is a naturally occurring, biologically active substance referred to as Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA). The fruit is a part of the tamarind family, which is also the same family as squash and pumpkin.

hCG is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in the female body; it is naturally produced in women after they become pregnant. Extracted as a compound it has been prescribed by doctors for weight loss and also to both men and women to aid the chance of fertility. The homeopathic version of hCG is much easier to include into a person’s daily lifestyle as it is easy to take, a liquid orally ingested by a dropper, and does not need to be injected by a health professional in a sterile environment.

There is no pain in taking homeopathic hCG whereas prescription hCG requires the pain of a daily shot and the noticeable puncture marks. HCG resets the metabolism of the person taking the drops helping them to "reprogram" their unhealthy eating habits.

One difference between the two supplements is that in order to gain the weight and fat loss benefits from hCG a user must also be actively following a very limited calorie intake diet. Garcinia Cambogia is shown to be a beneficial addition to any weight management program, it is recommended to shift to a more balanced diet with a significant reduction in low nutritional value carbohydrates (bread, sugar, potatoes, white rice etc.)

       hCG is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in the female body; it is naturally produced in women after they become pregnant.

Both products will suppress the appetite and burn unwanted fat cells. Neither product requires the incorporation of a regular exercise program. But exercise always helps.

GC works by blocking a fat producing enzyme in the system called citrate lyase, which actually makes it more difficult for the body tocontinue to produce unwanted fat. hCG helps the body to aggressively burn excess fat by compensating for reduced caloric intake while dieting. This is accomplished through efficient release of calories into the bloodstream by metabolizing existing fat. GC also creates an increased production of serotonin in the brain, which has the effect of inhibiting the brain function responsible for cravings.

Effectiveness
Garcinia Cambogia

The only way to be sure that any product works is to look at the reviews. In both instances to reviews relating to users of Garcinia Cambogia natural weight loss supplements and hCG natural weight loss supplements have consistently shown that the majority of users have exceeded their expectations and both products are commended by users. In the scientific community the effectiveness of Garcinia Cambogia as a weight and fat loss inducer has been tested in two clinical trials. These trials indicate that Garcinia Cambogia is effective for moderate weight loss over a period of several months. hCG has been through a very conclusive double blind clinical trial, which was conducted by Dr. A. Simeons in the 1950s. The hCG protocol has been used in medical practice and subscribed by MDs for decades. Garcinia being a diet supplement (read vitamin supplement) has received little attention from the medical community.

Homeopathic hCG is very popular with physicians in Europe but it too is viewed as more of a supplement in the US. Studies have also consistently found that the use of either the hCG or Garcinia Cambogia extracts, in conjunction with a daily exercise program have the effect of creating greater and faster weight loss than using the supplements alone.

How Much Weight Can You Lose?
weight loss tips

There is no maximum weight loss amount listed for either Garcinia Cambogia or hCG. The Simeons hCG study showed very dramatic weight loss for individuals who adhere to the strict calorie limits. This can be more than one pound per day and can result in the loss of 30 to 40 pounds in a month. The weight loss with hCG is significantly faster than with the G.C. diet. Garcinia Camb.ogia will facilitate a 3 to 8 pound weight loss in a one month period dependent on calorie intake and the level of physical activity. GC is meant to be used over a long period of time, similar to how vitamins are taken. A Garcinia Cambogia diet is a more relaxed method of losing weight. hCG causes your metabolism to be reset to optimal levels for long term weight loss. hCG need not be taken once your weight loss goals have been met, while GC requires ongoing use to ultimately reach those goals.

Combined Usage

Yes, these two very different supplements can be used together. This is best accomplished by using hCG for weight loss and Garcinia Cambogia as the key ingredient in your maintenance program. By using the two products in tandem, that is take hCG for a while and then switch over to GC. With hCG you can reach your target weight quickly, in two to four weeks. Once your metabolism has been optimized by hCG, you begin to use Garcinia Cambogia and stop using hCG completely. With GC added during the maintenance phase, the formation of new fat stores is blocked. This is the key to managing your appetite over the long run, especially those carb cravings.
