What is the hCG Diet?
The hCG Diet was actually designed back in the 1950′s by a British doctor named Dr. ATW Simeons. He discovered the hCG Diet Protocol that involves the use of hCG normally found in pregnant women and combined with a very low calorie diet (VLCD). People who followed Dr. Simeons’ diet protocol saw an average weight loss of 1 pound per day. The hCG Diet Protocol is safe for both men and women.
What Dr. Simeons discovered is the best way to drop weight quickly and to keep it off by following a maintenance stage for an additional 3 to 6 weeks. This protocol has helped thousands of people to keep the weight off. It works on 99.5% of the people who stick to it for the whole period. If you are serious about losing weight, the HCG diet protocol is for you.
Over the years, the HCG Diet has undergone a few changes. It starts out with phase 1, which is a cleansing stage to get you ready for the diet. Then it is followed with phase 2. This involves two gorge or load days where you can eat all the fatty foods you crave for two days. you start taking the hCG drops or hCG pellets at the beginning of this phase. Next you go on the VLCD part of the diet and stay on it for 21 to 42 days. This is where you see the pounds melt away. During phase 3 of the diet, you stop taking the HCG drops and eat a balanced diet of around 1500 to 2000 calories a day with the goal of staying within 2 pounds of your ending weight on phase 2. Do this for 3 to 6 weeks and this will reset your metabolism and hypothalamus gland to keep your weight at the new level.
If you have a lot of weight to lose, you can repeat the diet starting with phase two after taking 6 weeks off between rounds and do it all over again. So give the hCG diet a try, you will be happy with your results.
