The HCG Diet; Is it For You?
By now, most of us know that when you see words like, Lose weight now! It is probably a gimmick of some sort. There is much more to weight loss than a quick fix. We need to read up on what we are choosing to do to our bodies, and what we are consuming. There are programs/plans out there that have worked for many people and are safe and there are some that are not.
I am not a doctor or nutritionist. I am just a person who has struggled with weight for many years. I am looking at different diet plans or programs and giving you the information I find. I have read that there are research studies that show that HCG is not effective, while some say it is effective in helping people keep weight off. When taking HCG you are supposed to lose the fat and keep muscle which helps people sustain weight loss. Again, this is going to be another one of those diets that may or may not work for you and I would definitely consult with a doctor first!
HCG Weightloss, What is it?
First of all, what is HCG? HCG is a hormone that stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is a hormone produced by both men and women and is naturally produced by the body at low levels and helps to support a woman’s fertilized egg during the early stages of her pregnancy. One of the main functions of HCG is to assure that the embryo is secured. HCG also helps with ovulation. HCG is an important hormone. What you may not know, is that this hormone helps to burn fat as well.
What about HCG Weightloss? From what I have a read, it is a program that has four phases. Guess what? Their first phase is called The Loading Phase. What might one do during a loading phase? You guessed it! They want you to load up on food. You can eat whatever you want! Wow! Sign me up. Sounds odd though, doesn’t it? How can a diet plan that is purposing to help you ask you to eat whatever you want for three days? Well, there is a reason of course. What they want you to do is to load up on fat, even over do it, so the hypothalamus is signaled to burn more fat. During the diet, you will miss your favorite foods, so I guess here is your chance to load up. In this phase, you start taking HCG Droplets, up to 10 droplets 3 times a day.
Phase II is at least 21 days long, depending on how much weight you want to lose. Wait for it…It calls for a 500 calorie diet! I know, sounds insane. A low-calorie diet along with HCG droplets is supposed to kick start a huge calorie burn. You feel energized during this phase despite the low-calorie intake. There is a diet plan and help on the company’s website for you to review and decide if this is right for you.
Phase III is a reintroduction back to some of your favorite foods, so long as those foods do not include sugary, starchy foods and other high-caloric fatty foods. During this phase, you can eat up to 1500 calories, but you do not want to go back to eating those foods that got you to the place of unhappiness and being overweight.
Phase IV is the rest of your life phase where you will maintain what you have worked so hard for. You can eat good foods that you enjoyed in the past, so long as you do not overdo it on a continual basis. You stick to the 1500 calorie diet and maintain what you have worked hard to accomplish.
