Some common questions about the HCG Diet:
- How can an HCG diet plan improve my overall wellness and health?
Doctors agree that maintaining a healthy bodyweight, eating right, and staying active all play a role in your overall wellness and health. An HCG Diet designed specifically for your body’s needs can give you the boost you need to lose weight and kick-start your metabolism. Countless patients have used the HCG Diet as a first step on a road toward better health and wellness.
- Who is a good candidate for the HCG diet plan?
Any person who wishes to reduce their weight can consult a physician to learn more about the HCG Diet plan and its benefits. However, HCG Diet plans are not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing. Talk to your doctor about any health complications or medications you are taking before starting an HCG Diet plan.
- How much weight can I lose on the HCG diet and how fast?
Typically, an HCG dieter loses from anywhere between ½ to 2 pounds a day. Good fiber and water intake is extremely important, as they help flush out the excess fat from your body. HCG dieters have lost as much as 30 pounds in one round of an HCG Diet course, proving that the HCG diet is very effective in burning excess body fat and losing weight without engaging in exercise.
- Would I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low-calorie diet without the HCG?
You can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat. However, because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle before fat. This diet program is designed to incorporate specialized low-calorie diet in combination with the HCG injection. HCG alone will not help you lose the weight you desire. Rather the combination of the low-calorie diet and the HCG make permanent weight loss a success without depleting the body’s structural fat or muscle.
- Will I be hungry while on an HCG diet plan?
During the first few days after starting a low-calorie diet as part of an HCG diet plan it is not uncommon to have some hunger as your body adjusts to eating less food. Most patients do not report any negative side effects associated with hunger after the first few days of the diet as the HCG is doing its job in targeting stored body fat to sustain your body’s needs, preventing hunger pains and stimulating weight loss.
- Should I exercise as a part of my HCG diet plan?
A light exercise routine can be observed during an HCG Diet program however it is not required. After the program has been completed, it is recommended to get regular exercise or some type of physical activity to preserve your new-found metabolic function and perpetuate your healthy results. Talk to your doctor about what type of physical activity is right for your body before, during and after an HCG diet plan.
- How will I keep off the weight after completing an HCG diet plan?
Once the HCG Diet program has been completed, you will need to ease back to a more regular daily caloric intake, while maintaining healthy food choices. Going back to fat rich foods and a sedentary lifestyle will reverse all the progress achieved during the diet program; you will gain weight just as fast as you lost it. Your physician will guide and monitor you as you start consuming foods that were not allowed during the diet program. Some foods may cause weight gain, which you will have to avoid for a few weeks. You will also need a regular exercise or physical activity regime to avoid gaining back the excess weight. Proper diet and exercise is the key to maintaining the lean body figure that you have obtained.
