A urine injections weight-loss clinic is marketing a very different way of losing weight. Unorthodox comes to mind when one learns that the product used is HCG, a fancy word for the pee of pregnant women. Â Is the proof in the pudding, or is it just another extreme weight-loss scam that promises the shedding of boat-loads of pounds?
What's in the Urine Injections That Makes it Effective?
The providers of these diet injections claim the shots consist of the urine of pregnant women and the magic bullet is HCG aka human chorionic gonadotropinÂ [a fancy word for pee hormone]. Supposedly, the HCG component of urine serves as a hormone that tricks the brain into thinking that the user is pregnant. Â As a result, the person's metabolic rate speeds up and the pounds and inches melt away.
Need proof? Ask Sheryl Poloni, a customer of the urine injections weight loss clinic. According to her, by taking a shot a day since June, she has been able to lose 43 pounds and 30 inches off her waist. Â Further, she claims she is more alive, and lighter on her feet. Â In short, she says, she has never felt better. Â To her, the proof is in the pudding.
The Downside to Urine Injections For Weight Loss
According to experts, this is just a passing fad, another diet craze that has made its mark. Â Naysayers [and there's scores of them] contend that the use of urine injections for weight loss just doesn't work and should be avoided or stopped. Â Here's why:
- The Placebo Effect - Experts believe that urine injections come with a huge instruction manual and loads of commitment in the form of a 500 calorie diet.The rationale here is that if one is cutting calories in that manner, the weight will fall off anyway.
- Toxicity - A person considering injections of pee from pregnant women should be mindful to what they are putting into their blood stream. Â Is the urine injection safe or concealing a pathogen that could make you very sick?
- Cost - The use of urine injections for weight loss doesn't come cheap, and insurance won't cover fad unorthodox diets.
There you have it; urine injections for weight loss could be a panacea or a weapon in disguise. Â Perhaps the next thing will be to use the saliva from a horse instead of Botox when one wants work done.
