Have you heard of the newest diet trend known as the HCG diet? The truth is that HCG is not a trend at all; in fact the HCG diet has been dramatically improving the lives of patients for over fifty years. This revolutionary diet involves self-injection of HCG – a naturally occurring substance that helps the body burn fat and lose weight. HCG is a hormone created by the body during pregnancy but can also help non-pregnant patients lose up to a pound a day.
HCG shots can help increase your metabolism and energy without experiencing the nervousness of other products. HCG also allows for fat loss in stubborn areas that are hard to reach with exercise and other diets. Finally, HCG can improve your sleep and your mood.
The HCG diet has been proven successful in both male and female patients when paired with a 500 calorie a day diet. You should plan to stick to this diet for approximately 8 weeks, however under the advice of a physician you may be able to stay on the diet longer. While a small number of calories are available, you should rest assured that you can still eat during the HCG diet. Some of the most common foods included in the diet include fish, fruits, vegetables and even bread.
