Losing weight can prove difficult, especially if you’re following trendy diets to take off extra pounds. While some diets may help you lose weight initially, in most cases, you’ll quickly find yourself packing on the pounds again. Unfortunately, excess weight not only affects your body image, it affects your health as well.
The HCG diet has offered many patients an effective weight loss solution, helping patients improve their overall health. This diet is based upon the research done by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, who found a connection between the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) hormone and fat loss. Simeons developed the HCG diet plan more than 60 years ago, and for decades, medical professionals have been using his research to help patients achieve healthy weight loss.
The HCG Diet can offer many benefits to men and women, which may include:
The Diet is Tailored to Each Patient’s Needs
Every patient’s body is different, and most popular diets do not consider these differences, which is why many popular diets fail. However, the HCG diet is tailored to the specific needs of each patient. Before you start an HCG diet, medical tests are performed to determine the unique needs of your body. Based upon the test results, our doctors will create your custom HCG diet plan, which includes a low-calorie diet and daily doses of the HCG hormone.
Medical Supervision and Support
Most diets leave patients with plenty of restrictions and no support. However, when you start the HCG diet, you’ll enjoy medical supervision and support. Medical supervision is provided to ensure the diet meets your unique weight loss needs while ensuring that you lose weight safely. Each patient is provided with support throughout the diet, and medical professionals are available to address any questions or concerns along the way.
Safely Stick to a Low-Calorie Diet
The daily doses of HCG allow patients to safety stick to a low calorie diet, without letting the body go into starvation mode. Most extremely low-calorie diets make the body go into starvation mode, which results in fat storage. The extreme hunger that often comes with low-calorie diets can result in many side effects, including irritability, depression, confusion, and mood swings. However, the HCG diet uses the HCG hormones to prevent starvation mode, as the body begins burning fat for additional energy, which allows patients to follow the low-calorie diet plan without the negative side effects that come with other low calorie diets.
Enjoy Plenty of Energy While on the HCG Diet
Many dieters that begin following low calorie diets complain of fatigue, but even while restricting calories, patients enjoy plenty of energy while following the HCG diet. Since HCG allows the body to begin burning fat, stored fat is converted into energy, ensuring that you feel energized throughout the course of the diet.
Patients Will Not Lose Muscle Mass
Unfortunately, other low-calorie diets often result the loss of muscle mass. When the body goes into starvation mode, it stores fat and begins to burn muscle tissue, which is an undesirable result. On the HCG diet, you will not need to worry about losing muscle mass. Since the HCG hormone triggers the body to burn fat for energy, it prevents the body from burning muscle, ensuring that you maintain muscle mass throughout the diet. Maintaining muscle mass is important, since muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue does.
The Reduction in Body Fat Improves Overall Health
The HCG diet targets body fat, helping patients lose body fat quickly. While patients appreciate the excellent weight loss results this diet provides, the health benefits this diet has to offer are even more important. By reducing the amount of body fat, overall health is improved. Excess body fat raises the risk for many health problems, such as stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. By reducing overall body fat, patients enjoy improved overall health and a lower risk for many obesity-related health problems.
Weight Loss Results are Easy to Maintain
Dieters are often labeled “yo-yo dieters” when they follow a diet, lose weight, and then regain weight after stopping the diet. Constantly losing and regaining weight is a dangerous cycle, but it’s a common problem because it’s often difficult to maintain weight loss results after stopping a low calorie diet. Dieters following popular low calorie diets usually lose water weight and muscle tissue, and once they stop dieting, all the weight comes back. This isn’t a problem with the HCG diet, since the diet burns fat tissue and maintains muscle mass. With the HCG diet, you can easily maintain your weight loss, resulting in improved health for life.
