One of the most difficult parts of staying with almost any diet is enduring the hunger pains. HCG weight loss has a lot of benefits to it. One of the best benefits is the individual does not feel hungry. Human chorionic gonadotropin — HCG — is a hormone created in the body during early pregnancy. Injections of the HCG hormone and an extremely low calorie diet of approximately 500 calories each day.
The HCG hormone is based on protein. This is one of the reasons HCG weight loss is effective. The diet helps the individual lose a large quantity of fat while boosting the metabolism, without the feeling of hunger. The diet helps preserve lean muscle mass while helping the body to lose weight. One of the worst side effects of many different diets is the loss of lean muscle. HCG additionally boosts numerous hormones, leading to an anabolic state.
The diet is separated into three different phases. The first is called the loading phase. This is when the individual begins taking HCG and eats a lot of foods high in both calories and fat for a period of two days. The second step is the weight loss phase. The individual continues to receive injections while limiting their caloric intake to 500 calories each day for a period of three to six weeks. The final phase is the maintenance phase. The caloric intake is increased gradually. It is important to avoid starch and sugar for three weeks.
Many individuals experience weight loss during the middle phase of the diet when following the program for three weeks. A period of six weeks is recommended for more significant weight loss. During the weight loss phase, the individual is restricted to two meals per day. In most cases this is lunch and dinner. Each meal should consist of one portion of vegetables, lean protein, fruit and a slice of bread. There is an approved list of foods available including specific amounts. Sugar, oils and butter should be eliminated from the diet.
The individual is encouraged to drink plenty of water. Tea, black coffee, and mineral water are all acceptable as well. The bottom line is the HCG diet eliminates hunger pains and results in a significant weight loss. This diet is effective and has resulted in weight loss for an extremely large number of people.
