Whether you are someone who has struggled to lose weight for years or are just beginning your journey, you realize how difficult it can be. Simply exercising and eating less does not seem to cut it for many of us. Rather than giving up on your body goals, consider trying the HCG diet. If traditional diet and exercise has not worked for you, this plan can be the miracle you’ve been waiting for.
What is the HCG Diet?
Part of the HCG diet involves calorie restriction. How low you restrict your calories depends on your goals and your health. Some people go as low as 500 calories a day, but this diet can be effective even with higher calorie intake.
The other part of this diet, and where it gets its name, comes in the form of HCG injections. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin and it is a hormone naturally produced by the body of a pregnant woman. It helps to send calories to the baby and triggers the body to dip into fat reserves if necessary. When used as a part of the HCG diet, it helps to curb appetite while effectively burning fat. The HCG injections will help make your body burn fat rather than muscle reserves.
What Does the HCG Diet Consist Of?
Exactly what the diet will entail for you will depend on your personal needs. This is something that can be discussed at your consultation. Many people eat just two meals while in the losing phase of this diet. A good lunch and dinner, consisting of a lean protein, fruit, vegetable, and piece of bread, should be eaten. Again, needs will vary between individuals and a personalized treatment plan will be created for you to help you lose weight.
