Like many rapid weight loss programs, the HCG Diet program is based around a very low calorie diet. The idea behind this is simple, the less we consume, the more weight we lose. But unlike many other low calorie diets, the HCG Diet differs in one aspect. The weight we lose due to a low caloric intake will not come from our body eating our lean muscle away in order to function properly, but from the hcg resetting the hypothalamus to use our fat stores as an energy source.
Can a very low calorie diet be dangerous?
In order to determine whether you are ready for the VLCDor not we make sure that you not only submit the proper health documents, but we have one of our doctors and/or practitioners review those documents. Please make sure you understand that you can not get real hcg without a prescription. Do not fall for scams selling homeopathic hcg. Yes you will lose weight, because you will be following the very low calorie diet, but it will be mostly due to muscle loss.
How Many calories?
The original Dr. Simeons protocol calls for a 500 calorie diet. Many so called experts will claim that an 800 calorie diet will do, but that's nothing more than a marketing ploy! The only proven clinical trials are the ones that were performed by DR. Simeons, do not fall for the scam. Being that this is a rapid weight loss program, it is important to follow the rules, which makes the 500 calorie limit the most important rule to live by while on this diet.
Post Very Low Calorie Diet!
It is important that once you are done with the very low calorie diet that you go through with the maintenance phase. While on the 3 week maintenance phase (phase 3), you will be allowed to intake a higher amount of calories from healthy food sources. One of the most overlooked benefits of the very low calorie diet is that once you're done with it, your body will consume much lowers portions of food due to the previous 6 weeks of the VLCD.
