Not just another weight loss program – Does the hCG diet plan work or not?
The hcg diet protocol has become quite popular as more and more people are discovering its effective use. There are two different viewpoints circulating around the Internet as to whether the hCG diet protocol written by Dr. Simeons in the 1950’s works or doesn’t work.
One one hand, According to Dr. Simeons research paper “Pounds and Inches”, HCG is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a natural hormone which is believed by many to resets your metabolism and safeguards your body’s healthy fat. The HCG diet has been known to decrease the measurements around hips, thighs, buttocks and stomach while preventing the muscle tissue from deteriorating.
The opposing viewpoint is that there is no creditable proof that hCG hormone by itself actually burns fat at all and that any resulting weight loss that people are getting is purely a result of the lower calorie intake associated with Dr. Simeons 500 calorie per day diet plan. This may be true, we really don’t know for sure. But supporters of the hCG diet protocol swear up and down that the diet is their answer to achieving their goals and there is something about Dr. Simeons diet that works. It could be the lower calorie intake, it could be the combination of the foods used. We just don’t know the answer.
Most medical professionals agree that sticking to a 500 calorie diet is not safe for your overall health and imposes dangers. I would want to stick to a more safer approach. So I recommend that you modify the original diet plan and change it so that you are consuming at least 800 to 1200 calories a day. Yes, this may slow down the speed at which you lose weight, but it is better to be safe than sorry with your health. Stick to the foods that Dr. Simeons uses in his protocol. The only thing that I would do different is to double up on the amounts you eat from the diet. The recipes are great tasting and they are low fat and low sugar. The diet will have you eating the right foods.
The second thing I would change is the hCG drops. Since medical doctors are saying that the hCG does nothing in regards to weight loss, My hCG Source came up with a solution to the problem. Myhcgsource.com has introduced a new formula which will deliver better results. Why do we say that? It is because the new version works better with Dr. Simeons protocol and includes HPUS homeopathic remedies in the formula including Adrenalinum and Pituitarum that help with appetite control, Cortisone to reduce stress related weight gain, Hypothalamus to aid with water retention, and Thyroidinum for thyroid support. These are just a few of the ingredients found in the Supertrim formula. You would use the Supertrim formula exactly the same as the hCG drops in the diet plan.
The diet program requires Supertrim to be taken three times a day in the form of drops. The drops are rapidly absorbed into your system. They have to be taken twenty minutes before or after a meal and kept for 15 seconds before swallowing.
The HCG diet is a low calorie diet. The program can last from 26 to 42 days. The first two days are spent on stocking up on fats which later become the reserve from which the body feeds on. Then the third phase is a 1500 to 2000 calorie maintenance period for six weeks, where the goal is the keep your weight at the same level every day and slowly reintroduce back into your diet low fat and sugar again.
The modified Supertrim diet plan has been deemed safe and the Supertrim drops are manufactured in an FDA registered laboratory. The people who are following the diet for the first time are provided with all the necessary information plus there are many guide books available to help you through the program. Not only do you lose weight faster, but you also have more normalized blood sugar levels and blood pressure levels.
