Everyone is different. So truthfully, I can’t tell you if the HCG diet plan is right for you. But what I can do is tell you what the diet plan is all about so you can make a well informed decision. First of all HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. HCG is a hormone that naturally occurs in the human body.
The highest levels are found in women that are pregnant. It is produced by the placenta and is produced mostly during the early stages of pregnancy. As the pregnancy advances the levels of HCG will be depleted.
And although this hormone is more common in pregnant women, it can be found in all men and all women. That means the HCG diet plan is a great weight loss option for both men and women. The HCG diet has been responsible for helping millions of people lose weight fast.
It works by targeting the excess fat and burning it it. Sounds scary I know but it is completely painless. And the great thing is that it does this without you losing any lean muscle mass. As we all know, lean muscle is an essential part of losing weight.
This weight loss plan involves you eating only 500 calories a day. And the types of foods you can eat are limited. In other words, this is a very restrictive diet. Many have a hard time sticking with it. But if you want to lose the weight, you absolutely must stick with the diet.
As you can imagine this will take a great deal of self discipline. If you are not someone who has self discipline you won’t be able to lose weight with HCG.
Besides the restrictive diet you will also be required to take the hormone HCG either orally or via injection. The hormone is what will help you feel full throughout the day. 500 calories a day isn’t very much food. But the HCG drops will make up for that and ensure you don’t feel hungry.
While on this plan you will not be doing any exercise. You won’t have enough energy to make it through a tough workout since you caloric intake will be very low. If for some reason you want to exercise, make sure it is something very light as you don’t want to overdo it.
Overall the HCG diet plan can without a doubt help you lose weight. Is it the right diet plan for you? Well that is a decision that you have to make for yourself.
