The hCG diet was originally developed by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons to aid clinically obese patients in quickly returning to a safer weight zone to avoid deadly health conditions. The hCG diet is meant to promote a healthier lifestyle through careful consideration and use of less fatty foods and products.
HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone that the body naturally produces.
The body is constantly trying to maintain a balance, or what doctors refer to as Homeostasis. It has also been called a Set-Point. Fortunately, this Set-Point can be reset, and HCG is the key. When HCG is administered, the body responds by increasing the rate of fat burning. Here are a few benefits:
The HCG diet is a very low-fat, very low-calorie diet. It is generally divided into three phases: Loading phase: Start taking HCG and eat plenty of high-fat, high-calorie foods for two days. Weight loss phase: Continue taking HCG and eat only 500 calories per day for 26 days.
Although this is a strict plan, you will reach your weight loss goals and feel amazing. Maintenance is key after this diet not to gain the weight back.
Appetite suppressants can help in the beginning of the maintenance journey.
