Advantages of the HCG Diet Compared to Other Diets

Advantages of the HCG Diet

The HCG diet is one of the most effective diets available anywhere, and there are many advantages of the diet compared to other fast paced diets. The HCG diet can be completed in as little as three weeks and although it is fast paced it results in rapid weight loss. The weight loss on the diet often reaches a pace of up to 1 pound per day, and there are very few other diets that can safely match that pace of weight loss. At Nu Image Medical the diet is overseen by medical professionals with a strong background in the diet and who know how to safely administer it, and it is one of the safest and highest quality diet programs available anywhere.

The HCG diet is safe and proven over several decades

One of the main advantages of the HCG diet is that it is safe and has been proven to be safe over the past 5 decades. There are plenty of fad diets out there, but very few of them have proven to be safe over a long period of time. Anytime you try a diet that requires calorie restriction, you want to be sure that it has safely been used in the past, and the HCG diet has definitely proven that thousands of times. The hormone is also perfectly safe to use in the small quantities that it is used for weight loss, and there are no long term effects or dangerous symptoms associated with its use for weight loss.

No exercise is required

No exercise is required on the HCG diet which is a major advantage compared to other diets. Many other diets will require you to exercise while following their diet requirements, which is often an extra burden because it can be difficult enough to follow a diet for a period of time. The HCG diet gets its weight loss results without requiring any exercise at all, and there are few other diets that can match its speed of weight loss (0.25 to 1 lbs per day), without requiring some form of exercise. People who have limited time in their schedules really benefit from the diet because they don't have to dedicate any time at all to exercising until the diet is completed.

The weight loss is very fast

It seems like there are very few diets that can back up their claims of fast weight loss, but the HCG really can. Its ability to result in a weight loss of 0.25 to 1 pound per day has been documented thousands of times. As long as you follow the diet program properly and avoid cheating, you will definitely experience the fastest weight loss of your life. The most important thing to consider is the quality of the diet program that you are using. The program at Nu Image Medical has proven to be safe many times, and is one of the best programs out there. It's important to pick a program that has medical professionals who are familiar with the diet, so that your diet protocol can be adjusted if necessary to be as safe as possible for you.

The long term health benefits are incredible

When it comes to improving your health, losing body fat is by far one of the best things that you can do. By losing body fat, you will be reducing your risk of a wide range of different illnesses including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and other cardiovascular illnesses. Those who already have pre-diabetes or symptoms of hypertension can usually go on the HCG diet without any problems, and the diet often results in a partial or complete reversal of their symptoms. Pre-diabetics will often find that their blood sugar levels normalize and their insulin response returns back to normal, because many of the health problems that people experience are the result of a poor diet and an appetite for unhealthy foods, two things that the HCG diet corrects.

The hormone causes faster weight loss than other low calorie diets

One main benefit that the hormone offers is that it causes faster weight loss than what you would normally experience without using it. It is not only a necessary part of the diet, it makes the diet much easier to tolerate and manage. You will find that the hormone reduces your appetite tremendously and it makes the first week of the diet a much easier transition. It assists with fat metabolism by speeding it up and helps to ensure that you get a sufficient amount of energy from stored fat. This is the main advantage that other diets cannot provide you with.

Also, keep in mind that you will find several versions of the HCG diet available, now that it has become one of the most popular weight loss diets, but you should only use a diet program that uses the original Simeons protocol. The Simeons protocol is based on the original diet developed by Dr. A. T. W. Simeons, and this protocol has proven to be safe since its creation over 50 years ago. Nu Image Medical uses the Simeons protocol with its HCG diet, as the primary focus of our diet program is safety, however other diet programs may use new protocols that have not had any research or evidence backing their safety.

HCG makes the low calorie diet safe

There are other very low calorie diets out there, but they are not necessarily safe because they don't have any way to offset the calorie restriction. The HCG diet uses the HCG hormone to ensure that you get a sufficient amount of calories every day. Also, the diet is limited to a maximum of six weeks for safety reasons. Other low calorie diets do not have the benefit of a hormone that can help to burn abnormal fat to supply energy requirements. On other low calorie diets you may experience a wide range of symptoms, and even worse the creator of the diet may not have any actual background in medicine or nutrition.

It is a great stepping stone to a healthier lifestyle

Many medical professionals will attest to the safety and effectiveness of the HCG diet, and its widescale approval is something that is rarely seen amongst any diet at all. It is one of the best stepping stones to a healthier lifestyle, because regardless of how poor your diet is prior to starting the HCG diet, you will experience a major transition. The diet can change your appetites and reduce your cravings for unhealthy foods while increasing your cravings for healthy foods, and it helps to reset some of the brain chemistry involved in food cravings as well as your natural metabolism. There are very few other diets that can make such a major shift in your health in such a short period of time, and to learn more about how the HCG diet can benefit you from a medical professional, click here.
