With the popularity of the HCG diet in the U.S., many Canadians are wondering if they can get HCG in Canada. This quick weight loss and the added benefit of keeping the weight off make HCG diet appealing to people in many countries! The answer is yes, you can get HCG in Canada. However, as of September, 2010, there are very few companies who can successfully ship HCG to Canada.
The HCG diet protocol combines sublingual HCG drops with a very low calorie diet. These calories are supplemented by 3000-4000 calories per day in fat released by instructions from the hypothalamus. This phase is followed by six weeks of maintenance where the metabolism is set at a new, higher rate. This causes the body to burn excess fuel rather than storing it as fat like before which is what causes obesity.
Briefly, HCG is a hormone produced in pregnancy. Its job is to signal to the hypothalamus to release deep stored, nutrient-rich fat for the fetus to use if the mother isn't getting enough fuel to support the baby. By the same principle, with the HCG protocol, a miniscule amount of HCG is used with a very strict food plan to release, burn, and eliminate this fat.
It works like clockwork, to the tune of 1-2 pounds of fat loss per day. However, it's a specific food plan that must be followed precisely. It's not like a diet where you can cheat and stop and start again. The HCG protocol is a medical treatment for obesity, available to anyone who wants to use it.
HCG comes in several forms, but the most affordable and accessible form is the homeopathic HCG drops. There is absolutely no difference in effectiveness compared to the other methods, which can run into the thousands of dollars. Expect to spend between $150 and $250 on homeopathic HCG drops, depending on how much weight you want to lose.
While the HCG diet is very appealing, it's hard to find HCG in Canada. In September, 2010, most Internet-based companies stopped shipping HCG to Canada because it's too hard to get through Customs. The only company that has proven its long-term ability to successfully deliver HCG in Canada is MyHCGPlus.com. They ship and deliver orders every day to all Canadian provinces. Most orders arrive within five business days.
Another upside to MyHCGPlus is their unprecedented support guides to each step of the protocol, full private resource area, thousands of fellow HCG dieters to connect with, and a full staff of Certified Nutrition Coaches providing support 100+ hours each week.
Now that you've found the company that provides HCG in Canada, make sure you read the free 50-page book by Dr. Simeons, "Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity". This will explain the science behind the protocol, and give you a good understanding of why it works for everyone when the plan is followed.
