The entire diet plan consists of three stages, starting with the intake of high calorie foods for 2 days. The maintenance phase starts after 2 days of loading body with high calorie foods. It lasts for 21 days to forty days (depending on the weight loss aim set by the dieter). The administration of HCG diet drops is stopped as soon as dieter advances into the stabilization stage of the diet plan. During this phase, dieters are advised to increase their calorie intake gradually. This phase lasts for about 21 days.
Pros And Cons Of HCG Weight Loss Plan
HCG diet plan is considered as the most effective and natural way of weight loss. HCG has the ability to work on the hypothalamus gland of our body. Hypothalamus gland helps in mobilizing the metabolic activities. HCG triggers hypothalamus gland to release fat from reserves. In this way, it helps body to make use of its own fat while the dieter is on a low calorie diet plan.
Now-a-days, Homeopathic HCG drops are available in market. These drops are made after undergoing rigorous dilution process. Homeopathic HCG helps to curb food cravings and lessen strong hunger pangs while dieter follows a strict low carbohydrate diet plan.
In contrast to the HCG diet drops, HCG shots must be administered under proper clinical guidance. The shots must be discontinued and later continued till the body gets immune after certain number of shots. On the other hand, HCG diet drops are administered orally (sublingually), making them completely safe.
Precautions should be taken while planning meal charts for this diet plan. Dairy consumption should not exceed one tablespoon in a day. Consumption of lean proteins along with green leafy vegetables should be encouraged. Moderate amounts of nuts, sugary fruits, dairy and oil is permitted during HCG diet plan. Lastly, each meal should be measured for successful weight-loss during the plan and maintaining it subsequently.
