What is hcg?
You have all seen me writing about weight loss and hcg recently. Well, what is hcg exactly? HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin (I think I'll stick to the initials), is a hormone. It is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. That seems simple enough however, some cancerous tumors produce this hormone as well although no one seems to be certain why. The important thing to remember is that as of December 2011 the sell of hcg diet products is illegal and unsafe. Please stay away from products containing hcg as you start your diet this year! There are too many ways to safely loose weight to risk using products that aren't.
