You probably know by now that hCG, humand Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone, is a hormone naturally found in pregnant women. So it makes sense that the hCG diet is useful for women, but what about for men? Many people seem to think that hCG can have negative side effects and possibly even “feminize” men who try out the diet.

Any man can use the hCG diet just as easily as any woman, and here’s why:

The results of the hCG diet attract a lot of people to the diet, but it really isn’t for everyone. Everybody would love to lose twenty pounds or more a month, but the unfortunate truth is that hCG isn’t meant to be someone’s go to diet plan.

hCG Injection Alternatives

Very few people like needles. I’m not saying we’re all scared little kids, if you have to get a shot I’m sure you take it like an adult, but for the most part people avoid needles whenever possible.

As a forewarning, I’m going to be talking about scientific processes in a very simplistic manner so that everyone can understand what I’m talking about. In the comments, feel free to ramp up the discussion to include exceptions and whatnot.
