What is the HCG Diet?
One of the most common questions we receive about the HCG diet is, “What am I supposed to eat while taking the HCG drops?” While on the diet, you will be focusing on eating lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables, while avoiding processed foods, added sweeteners, and refined flours.
When researching the HCG diet, Dr. Simeons experimented with an array of food to see what foods really did offer the greatest weight loss success. After a lot of trial and error, he solidified the HCG protocol. The foods listed are low in natural carbs and sugars, relatively low in fat, and they are all natural. They are full of nutrients that your body needs like protein, calcium, and essential vitamins.
The HCG Diet Is Necessary for Long Term Results
The HCG diet is a great way to kick start your way into eating a healthier, more natural diet. Because you do have to follow the protocol to lose weight, your body begins to detox from all of the sugars and starches that you’ve been feeding it on a regular basis. After you are done with the HCG diet, you’ll notice that your cravings for sweets and junk food have disappeared. You’ll also notice that you feel lighter in your step, because of the weight loss you’ve achieved. And these are all results of feeding your body a more natural, less processed diet while taking the HCG drops.
What Happens When You Do Not Follow the HCG Diet
So what happens if you don’t follow the diet, but continue to take the HCG drops? This happens all the time! Customers will call and let us know that they had a slip up on their diet, and either their weight loss has stalled completely or they are gaining weight. This is definitely not unusual. Anytime you stray from the HCG diet protocol, weight loss can slow or stall for anywhere from 3-6 days. The only way to get your weight loss going again is to drink plenty of water and stick with the HCG protocol.
The HCG diet has been around for over 50 years, and has helped a lot of people around the world lose weight permanently. In order for the HCG diet to work, you must focus on sticking with the protocol. It’s always best to schedule your HCG diet around a time where you don’t have a lot going on to ensure your success. If you know you have a lot of parties, weddings, or other events going on, it may not be the best time to start a diet like the HCG diet.
