Many people diet and exercise and are relatively satisfied with their physique, however there may be one or two problems areas that regardless of what they do they simply cannot address. Even if there is a relatively small amount of weight loss desired the HCG diet can be used. Once the desired weight loss is achieved one may simply double the calorie intake until no less than 23 injections have been administered. Most individuals desiring to lose just a few pounds notice that they also lose inches in these problematic areas and are very pleased with their results. Regardless of your desired weight loss goals, the protocol must be followed exactly and no less the 23 injections are required. The HCG will still have the same positive effects on the body by resetting the hypothalamus and thus keeping the weight and inches off in these problematic areas.
