How Does the HCG Diet Boost Weight Loss?

medical weight loss

To realize weight loss goals and maintain a healthy weight, an effective and comprehensive medical weight program is paramount. HCG is a protein-based hormone that the body produces during pregnancy. It aids in maintaining the production of vital hormones like progesterone to support the healthy growth and development of the uterus and fetus.

The HCG diet has been popular for many years. HCG is a hormone that was first used in weight loss back in the 1950s. This hormonal diet is a medical weight loss plan initiated by Albert T. W. Simeons, who reported that the HCG regime allows the body to partially burn stored fat, particularly within the thighs, stomach, and hips.

The HCG diet combines hormone supplements or utilizing injections of chronic gonadotropin and calorie restriction for weight loss. Proponents of a popular diet containing HCG argue that they can reset the body's metabolism and fix abnormal eating trends. The HCG diet is based on the idea of altering the body's hormones to convert fat into fuel.

Phases of the HCG Diet Plan

Loading phase: The loading phase claims to prepare the body's calorific restriction. During this phase, people consume high levels of fats, including high-calorie foods up to 250 grams of fat daily. Daily HCG hormone supplements or injections are initiated during this period.

Weight loss phase: During this phase, adherents continue their HCG supplements while eating either 500 or 800 calories per day spread over two meals. This medical weight loss phase may last for three to six weeks, depending on the individual loss mission.

Maintenance Phase: When an individual is put on an HCG diet and has shed the desired amount of weight, they discontinue supplementation of HCG hormone while gradually increasing calories.

Benefits of the HCG Diet Plan

The ultimate advantage of the HCG diet is to boost your body's metabolic rate. You get the desired results without feeling frustrated or discouraged. Other benefits include:

  • Your metabolism functions faster for the effective burning of calories.
  • It stabilizes your blood sugar levels and controls estrogen levels in women.
  • This medical weight loss plan boosts testosterone in men.
  • It helps to balance hormonal levels in both sexes.
  • It curbs your appetite. When you are given controlled daily injections carefully, you will keep your appetite under control.
  • It burns fat, not muscles. HCG injections assist your body to get rid of fats while safeguarding your muscle mass.
  • You may have more energy. This controlled medical weight loss can produce amazing results in a short duration.

What to Eat and Avoid on the HCG Diet Plan

The HCG diet restricts calories. According to the HCG diet plan, the following are a list of approved foods:

  • Some fruits, including strawberries, apples, red grapefruit, and limited oranges.
  • Non-starchy vegetables including onions, lettuce, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
  • Lean meat: Chicken breast, shrimp, lobster, and lean ground beef.
