HCG Diet – Taking On The Battle
HCG Diet Tips Las Vegas, Nevada – Losing weight can be hard and take monumental effort, willpower and strength. However, the end result is worth it, and the overall feeling of achievement is spectacular.
These days, we’re bombarded with different diets that all promise a “quick fix”, but the truth of the matter is, there is no such thing as a “quick fix”. Changing your lifestyle is really the only way to get the results you’re looking for. However, having said that, there are some diets that rely on science and that are proven to beat the bulge. One of these proven new diets is known as the HCG diet.
You might have heard of HCG, but in a completely different context – HCG is a naturally occurring substance in pregnant women. If you take a pregnancy test, the test is measuring the level of HCG in your urine. This natural substance can also be used to help in weight loss, when combined with a strict diet.
Now, we should mention that the HCG diet is not one to be taken lightly, and HCG injections are available on prescription only, by a trained doctor (after a thorough consultation). The FDA have not approved HCG in weight loss, however there is much research to back it up.
Daily injections of HCG are given while the individual adheres to a diet that involves an intake of 500 calories per day. Additionally, a very strict “yes-or- no list” of foods must be followed extremely closely. Any deviation will affect the desired outcome. The first couple of days of the diet involves basically gorging on food, in order to build up fat reserves, and after that the diet starts. Whilst 500 calories sounds low, the injections give your body extra calories by releasing abnormal fat reserves, which is where the weight loss comes to play, as well as the lack of hunger. Your body is given enough fuel to function, however it’s important to never stay on the diet for longer than advised, as your body will become immune to the injections and will not function on the low amount of calories.
