The holiday season is over. We hope that you took the time during the holiday season to enjoy time with your family and friends eating lots and lots of happy, yummy foods without worrying too much about the carbs, calories, and fat. Though it’s not smart to stuff yourself during the holiday festivities, enjoying good foods with friends and family is something to cherish.
Since holiday festivities are over, you might want to kick back into a healthy routine. Luckily, January provides a turning point for everyone to make changes more easily than at other times of the year.
Why choose the HCG Diet?
The HCG Diet is great for those who want to change their trajectory in terms of weight gain during the holidays. Whether you have heard about it before or not, the HCG Diet is simple and effective, unlike other popular diets. With the HCG diet, you’ll be able to lose weight faster, around a pound or two each day. It is suited not only to those who want to lose over 30 pounds but also to those whose goal is to lose 10 to 15 pounds. It is safe for both men and women.
Aside from weight loss, another benefit of the HCG Diet is that it keeps you from losing muscle while you diet. The HCG hormone promotes muscle building while you lose fats. This set this diet apart from other weight loss programs. Typically, when you restrict your calorie intake you lose a high amount of muscle mass. Your metabolism slows down so much that you are at risk of gaining the weight back so quickly. With the HCG hormone present in your system, you prevent this from happening.
How does the HCG Diet work?
HCG, which stands for human chorionic gonadotrophin, is a pro-hormone that your body can produce naturally. HCG is produced by the placenta of pregnant women. It’s the hormone that keeps the progesterone high vital for a safe and successful pregnancy. It may come as a surprise for a natural hormone that the body makes during pregnancy to be injected for weight loss. But that’s exactly what the HCG Diet is about.
The HCG diet combines the use of HCG hormone and low-calorie restrictions to reset your metabolism. These combinations will allow you to lose around 1 pound or two each day. During the diet, you are allowed to have only lunch and dinner with a protein, a serving of vegetables, a piece of fruit, and a slice of carb (Melba toast or Grissini stick) per meal.
HCG is available in oral drops, pellet, pill, and injection but I suggest that you use the injection form as it is more effective than drops or pellet. If you are worried about the needles, well, the needles are so small and the injected amount is so minuscule.
HCG is effective in suppressing the appetite. More research in this area is needed, but anecdotal reports suggest HCG could get you through your low-calorie diet without making you feel weak, hungry, and irritable all day.
