When going on an HCG diet, there are several steps you can take to help maximize the effects of the hormone so you can get the best results possible. In addition to following the low calorie diet, adding in these simple strategies will help you experience some great results while keeping your body as healthy as possible.
Drink 2 qts. of water each day. Drinking plenty of water each day helps to cleanse your body and further helps to suppress your appetite.
If you are having a hard time fighting the temptation to eat foods that are not on your diet plan, try chewing gum.
You should also be sure to plan your meals wisely. It is always a bad idea to eat when it is close to bedtime. This is because your body has a tendency to store fat while you sleep.
Therefore, try to eat your last meal for the day more than three hours before going to bed. If you go to bed on an empty stomach, you won’t have to worry about your body storing that extra fat.
By adding these extra steps, you can increase the amount of weight you lose from just half a pound per day to two or even three pounds. In addition, since the HCG helps to contour your body, you won’t have to worry about unsightly skin flaps developing as the result of such rapid weight loss.
How does HCG help you lose weight in all the right places?
It’s not only about pounds; it’s about the inches. The HCG protocol consists of a combination of a Very Low Calorie Diet and the use of Homeopathic HCG. However, the amount of weight lost during treatment does not differ significantly from other treatments involving low calorie diets.
What makes treatment with HCG so effective is that patients lose significantly more body fat than patients that only diet. The impact is seen in a changed body contour, with particular impact on those hard to reduce areas such as thighs and buttocks.
Fat gains weight faster than muscle, this is a known fact. So when you change the proportion of body fat to muscle in your body during treatment with the HCG you are actually diminishing your chances of rebounding back to your original weight.
Once the low calorie diet ends (approximately six weeks, depending on your weight loss objective) you will go through a “maintenance” period where the level of calories is restored to the usual rate according to body type, but all ingredients that could be stored by the body as fat are restricted.
In this way, the body realigns itself to a normal eating routine, but does not increment the fat storage, which greatly diminishes the risk of rebounding back to the original weight.
During treatment you will quickly lose weight, but maintain your muscle mass, and the weight loss will be concentrated in those areas that are most complicated to reduce. No bad moods. No headaches. No weakness.
The use of Homeopathic HCG during treatment not only affects where you lose weight, but also how you feel while doing it.
HCG is believed to generate endorphins in the human body. These endorphins generate feelings of well being, increased energy and ability to focus, making the Homeopathic HCG Protocol not only effective but pleasant.
During treatment with Homeopathic HCG you will be able to continue an active lifestyle, including exercise (although exercising is not necessary for achieving results). You will feel energized and in a good mood and will not experience excessive hunger pangs.
The advantages of the Homeopathic HCG Method can be summarized in the following points:
The Homeopathic HCG Method delivers an average weight loss of 35 – 55 lbs, with no recovery of weight in the period following treatment.
This speed allows patients to visualize results almost immediately, acting as a strong motivator to strictly adhere to the protocol.
Focused weight loss and modeling of body contour
The Homeopathic HCG Method delivers important weight loss, but as a differentiating factor vs. other weight loss treatments using Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCDs), most of the weight loss is concentrated on localized subcutaneous fat, particularly in those areas where there is greater concentration.
Structural fat, necessary to maintain a healthy body and muscular mass is not affected: As a consequence, the proportion of body fat to muscle changes radically, making the metabolic process more efficient and reducing possibilities of the well known “rebound effect.”
Additionally, a positive effect is produced on skin tissues, which become more elastic and accompany the loss in body weight, assuring a harmonious corporal contour. Loose, sagging skin is not evidenced, even when weight loss is more than 40 lbs.
No secondary side effects
The use of HCG has not demonstrated negative side effects in any of its approved utilities, nor in use with the Homeopathic HCG Method.
Additionally, double blind studies and clinical results of patients undergoing treatment with Oral HCG have shown that patients present high levels of energy, good mood, absence of headaches, and lack of hunger and anxiety.
