HCG Diet Program for Men
Indiana HCG Diet Program Doctor, David McLaughlin, M.D. at Men’s and Women’s Specialty Health Centers, P.C. offers customized HCG Diet programs to men that want lose weight. Men are able to successfully use the HCG hormone to reach their desired weight loss goals, and it has been used for a number of years for male health issues that are unrelated to weight loss. The HCG hormone has been used for men in fertility treatments and in younger boys with testicles that have not descended from the scrotum. For men that have abused anabolic steroids, HCG has been used to help their testicles regain a normal size.
The HCG hormone is able to promote testosterone production by mimicking LH, which is needed to signal the testicles to start up their production of testosterone. In men, HCG has a great resemblance to LH. Anabolic steroid use can trigger the hypothalamus to stop its production of Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone or (GnRH), which causes the pituitary to stop its production of LH. Because LH is needed for testosterone production, the testicles can decrease their production of testosterone to cause infertility, early andropause, and smaller testicles.
The HCG hormone can reduce these issues, and it can also increase the number of Leydig cells in the testicles. The Leydig cells produce testosterone, and in a normal male, they produce from 4-10 mg of testosterone each day.
On the diet, the HCG hormone helps men to lose weight. In pregnant women, the hormone helps to utilize fat stores for nutrients in the event of a famine. When it is used for weight loss in men, it carries out the same function of breaking down fat for energy when following a low calorie diet.
Typically, men lose around a pound a day, but they are likely to lose more weight on average than women. This is because they typically have more muscle mass than women. Because muscle burns fat, their metabolic rate for fat breakdown tends to be higher. Another aspect to their more rapid weight loss can be attributed to testosterone. Because HCG can promote the production of testosterone, which has a direct affect on muscle cells, men can obtain more muscle from workouts and burn extra fat.
Increased testosterone can help with mild cases of erectile dysfunction and low libido. When a man’s testosterone levels drop, he can begin to experience issues with sexual function. The signs of this may begin with needing extra stimulation to obtain an erection and the loss of involuntary morning erections. It may also manifest with feeling too tired for sexual activity or feeling as though it is not interesting. Testosterone is directly responsible for sexual function and desire, and when the Leydig cells are inclined to produce more testosterone, it can help improve sexual function and desire.
Usually HCG is taken from the urine of a pregnant woman, and modified into specific doses that allow men to take the hormone for weight loss. HCG usually comes in an injectable form and dosages must be modified to fit individual weight and height. Despite the allure of advertisements for homeopathic HCG, it is not the true HCG hormone and does not have the same functions. When doing the HCG diet, patients should be monitored at all times by a physician to avoid health risks and to make sure the diet is suitable for their body.
Some benefits that help men to achieve weight loss include:
Increased cardiac health can result from reducing the risk for atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. Obesity causes the heart to work harder because it has to supply more tissue with blood and oxygen. Over time, the constant stretching of vessel walls creates minute tears and plaque builds up. This condition eventually leads to heart disease.
Lower blood pressure results when the heart does not have to work so hard to pump blood, and weight loss can decrease strain on the heart.
Healthier digestion may result from the HCG diet because it allows the intestines to work less by the ingestion of foods higher in nutrients and fiber. Fiber allows substances to move easier through the intestines.
Increased energy can be expected with weight loss from HCG. When the body has less weight to carry around, it is able to expend energy on other functions.
Improved Relationships can be a result of HCG because of the significance placed on body image and attraction. When a person feels better, it can be reflected in personal relationships.
Decreased cholesterol may result from the HCG diet due to the decrease in fat and fatty foods. Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in the blood, and when it builds up, it can make it difficult for blood to flow freely.
Decreased risk for stroke occurs from fat loss. When there is too much fat present in the body, it constricts the blood vessels, and makes it difficult for oxygen and blood to flow properly in the body. If blood and oxygen do not easily flow to the brain, a person may experience a stroke.
