How does HCG diet work?
HCG is the hormone that is produced during pregnancy to stimulate the body to burn extra fat cells for energy. The HCG hormone opens fat cell membranes and allows the body to release unwanted fat. Only a very small amount of HCG is used in the diet plan, compared to the massive amounts released during pregnancy. The HCG helps maintain the strict regimen of a very low-calorie diet without feeling weak and hungry. Meanwhile, your body learns to reset your metabolism and adjust to a normal weight, allowing you to keep the weight off while eating healthy foods after you complete the HCG Diet. The HCG Diet has been used safely by thousands of men and women for rapid weight loss.
Is HCG diet safe?
Yes, it is very safe. Large amounts of HCG are released during pregnancy without any harmful side effects. The amount of HCG used weight loss programs is only a fraction of what is naturally released during pregnancy.
If I eat a very low-calorie diet with HCG, will I still lose the same amount of weight?
No, because without HCG, your body goes into “starvation mode.” In this mode your body is programmed to store fat instead of burning it, in order to create reserves to make it through the period of starvation. HCG opens up your fat stores and uses calories from fat for energy.
How much weight will I lose on the program?
The average amount of weight loss is between 20 to 25 pounds. This varies from individual to individual, and the closer you are to your body’s ideal weight, the slower you will lose weight. The slowest loser usually loses amount a 1/2 pound a day.
What happens after I complete the diet?
When you complete the diet, you must continue to weigh each day. Individuals need to maintain your weight within one to two pounds. Individuals should refrain from all starches and sugars at first, and slowly add them back to your diet as long as your maintaining your weight. You may increase your food intake slowly each day until you reach a level that maintains your NEW weight.
