HCG causes your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available for use. While you are only consuming 500 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body. Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day. The result is your body using thousands of calories of fat from your body each day; the reason HCG dieters lose up to1 to 2 lbs of fat or more, per day.
Those who have struggled with diets before, are looking to lose over 20 lbs, or are interested in losing weight quickly yet safely.
Yes. You must eat 5‐6 times per day on the first 2 days of the diet. This helps to build up your fat reserves before starting a very low calorie diet of 500 calories daily which is required. It is not recommended to eat too much to where you feel sick and bloated. You may incorporate cooking oils, sugar and starches, (whole grain or whole wheat are preferred) cooking oils all of which may be included in your 2 day gorging. It takes approximately 3 injections of HCG before the fat begins to melt away.
No. Exercise is not a mandatory part of the program. While vigorous exercise may increase the amount of weight you lose it is not a significant increase and is not recommended due to the low caloric intake. Vigorous exercise can lead to exhaustion and significantly increases hunger which will ultimately only lead to discouragement and frustration. If you are already accustomed to exercising at a certain level and would like to continue, do so, but do not over do it. Pay attention to your bodys response. Scale down the intensity of the workouts if: (1) you dont have the energy to get through it; (2) you start feeling ill or light headed; (3) you gain weight the next day; or (4) you don''t have the energy to get through the day after you work out. Our suggestion for those who want to exercise is that you walk for 20 to 30 minutes daily. Walking is great exercise and contributes to your health in a variety of ways. It helps relieve stress, keeps the bowels moving, conditions your cardiovascular system, and encourages better blood/oxygen circulation. When you are finished with the program you can then pick up the intensity of your exercise routines.
You can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat. However, because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle before fat. This diet program is designed to incorporate specialized low calorie diet in combination with the HCG injection. HCG alone will not help you lose the weight you desire. Rather the combination of the low calorie diet and the HCG make permanent weight loss a success without depleting the body's structural fat or muscle.
