Many individuals struggle with weight issues and keeping fit. To some extent, this is as a result of unhealthy eating habits and the lack of exercise. Excessive calories often from low nutrient foods are largely responsible for the excess weight that individuals are seeking to shed. Dealing with the intake of these calories is one step towards keeping one’s weight in check. A person that is serious about cutting down on his or her weight might consider the HCG Diet.
HCG is an acronym for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin. This is a hormone that is produced in women during pregnancy. When used to lose weight, HCG helps suppress appetite and assists the body with releasing excess fat to be metabolized and used for energy.
The protocol for the HCG diet includes two steps – an 500-800 calorie a day diet and HCG injections. The HCG injections help eliminate cravings which often cause overeating or “cheating” which leads to excess weight. Keeping those cravings under control can make the dieting process much easier. It is important to note that the HCG hormone injections need to be continued for a period of one month after reaching goal weight. This is known as the maintenance period. This process helps stabilize the new weight.
After the maintenance period is complete (one month), a person is put on a menu program that is nutritionally balanced and includes the correct caloric count to keep the pounds off long term.
Other benefits of the HCG Diet include:
- No exercise is required while dieting
- Lose fat, not muscle
- The appearance of cellulite is decreased and the skin firms up and tightens
- Libido increases
- Reduced cravings for sugar and carbs
- Increases energy & metabolism
