Everyone’s HCG diet results vary according to a number of factors. Number of pounds you need to lose is the most important. Lifestyle, age, underlying medical conditions and dedication to the plan are some others.
Anyone who follows the proven protocol as written by Dr. Simeons in his book “Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity” will see results.
During the VLCD, or very low calorie diet phase, people report losing anywhere from 1 pound all the way up to 6 pounds a day. This is unheard of with any other safe dieting method. The reason for these numbers is the science behind the diet.
The HCG diet is a combination of HCG, human chorionic gonadotropin, and a very low calorie diet. These two components work together to access stored fat for use as fuel.
HCG is a chemical naturally found in pregnant women which is produced by the placenta. Its job is to instruct the hypothalamus to release stored fat to be used as nourishment for the growing fetus when mom isn’t taking in enough.
What HCG does for someone that is not pregnant is to instruct the same release of fat stores to allow them to be used. Under normal circumstances, this reserved fat is the last to be accessed. You would have to essentially starve yourself to start using them. A very small amount of HCG will cause the body to release 3000 to 4000 calories into the bloodstream every day from these stores. This not only fuels the body but also makes you feel full.
The very low calorie diet, or 500 calories of specific foods, is all you will need or want with this going on. The diet consists of important proteins and nutrients your body needs to be healthy while the released fat stores are being used up and giving you energy.
As I said, different people will experience different results but anyone can safely and effectively end their weight loss roller coaster forever with the HCG diet plan.
If you follow the plan and don’t stray you will see results in a fraction of the time you would with traditional dieting. In addition to rapid weight loss, maintaining weight loss has never been easier than with the HCG diet.
During the maintenance phase you actually retrain your metabolism to work more efficiently so that you can eat normally again without risking regaining the weight. Eating smaller amounts of healthier food choices will become your new normal because all of those toxins will have been removed from your body and your cravings will be diminished.
There is finally a way for anyone in almost any situation to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. With the obesity rates increasing every day, it’s about time!
