Weight loss means everything to some people who are willing to try everything imaginable in order to lose weight â€“ including urine injections! This weight loss diet is bizarre, donâ€™t you think? If doing it would definitely lead to weight loss, would you give yourself urine injections?
How Do Urine Injections Help With Weight Loss?
To speak more specifically, the urine needs to be that of a pregnant woman. You see, it isnâ€™t actually the urine that affects the weight loss â€“ itâ€™s the HCG hormone found in the urine of pregnant women that is suspected to do the trick. The human chorionic gonadotropin plays a trick on your body, making you believe you are pregnant.
Iris McCarthy of Success Weight Loss Systems is convinced it works. McCarthy said science has shown her HCG helps the body metabolize faster.
“This will help you have patience to learn how to change your ways and change your relationship with food,” she said.
Sheryl Paloni lost 43 pounds and more than 30 inches since beginning the urine injections in June. Sheryl injected herself with it daily.
“I thought, ‘My goodness, you could lose a pound a day just taking a shot? I’m going to find about this,'” said Paloni.
Seriously, youâ€™ve got every right to be skeptical â€“ not only did Paloni give herself daily urine injections – she was put on a restricted caloric intake of 500 calories a day.
Dr. Barry Ramos, a cardiologist, said “The HCG doesn’t have anything to do with the weight loss. The fact is if you go on a 500 calorie-a-day diet, you lose weight. The bottom line is, it’s potentially dangerous because you don’t know what you’re injecting in your body. The best way to lose weight is diet and exercise.â€
Some are true believers while others remain skeptical. Before you go out and spend between $300 and $565, which is the cost of the six-week program, why donâ€™t you first challenge yourself to simply restrict yourself to fewer calories? Not only would you save yourself the expense of the program (not to mention the gross factor of the urine injections), you would be spending less on groceries and dining out as well. You just might find that you lose weight plus have more money in your pocket to spend on the new wardrobe you will need to accommodate your slimmer figure.
