Consequences of Quitting the HCG Diet Early

Consequences of Quitting the HCG Diet Early
Quitting the HCG diet early can have significant consequences on your weight loss, and it can reduce the amount of weight that you lose by quite a bit. You definitely don't want to quit the diet early whenever possible, and by sticking at least Phase 2 of the diet out for three or six weeks you'll get much better results from it. If you're struggling with the diet, you don't need to quit but simply make adjustments to make the diet easier for you, and there's a lot that you can actually do to change the diet up so that you can finish it without cheating and still get as close to the maximum amount of weight loss possible.

You won't lose as much weight when you quit early

It may be obvious, but you won't be losing as much weight when you quit the HCG diet early. The amount of weight that you lose in total will depend on when you quit the diet. If you quit it toward the earlier parts of Phase 2, it's possible that you might not lose any weight at all. If you quit towards the end of Phase 2 but don't start or finish Phase 3, you might lose a large amount of weight but you'll be very likely to gain most of it back. If you quit toward the middle of Phase 3, the same result will occur and you won't have as much weight loss as you possibly could.

Quitting early is always going to have a significant effect on your weight loss, and no matter what you should try to plan your diet out so that you can follow it exactly as it is suggested in the HCG diet guide. Neglecting to do this can result in much lower weight loss than you would expect, and you will also have to wait a period of time before restarting the diet if you plan on doing so. You'll have to wait at least 6 weeks to avoid the problem of hormone tolerance building up, and if you continually repeat the diet you'll have to wait even more time. Having to repeat the diet because of stopping it early should be avoided at all costs.

If you're struggling with the diet, talk to a medical provider

You should never attempt the HCG diet without speaking to a medical provider about your strategy for the diet before beginning it and during the diet. At Nu Image Medical you get a full medical consultation at the start of the diet, where you have the opportunity to address your concerns about it and plan the diet out accordingly based on your lifestyle and your other requirements. You can choose to make your own meals or purchase pre-packaged HCG diet meals that are very convenient, and this allows you to customize the diet for your particular lifestyle and your requirements. Your medical provider can address any questions that you have and help you plan your diet out

Choosing a diet program that has a medical consultation is extremely important so that you have the ability to request a meeting with a medical provider for advice on the diet. You can make adjustments to the diet with the approval of a medical provider, such as increasing your vegetable or protein servings, spacing out your meals, or other changes that can make the diet easier for you. The vast majority of dieters who try the program at Nu Image Medical are able to finish it successfully because of the support provided, and they are able to get information on how they should customize the diet and make appropriate changes to it as needed.

You don't need to quit early with the right adjustments

When you adjust Phase 2 or Phase 3 as needed, there's really no reason for you to quit the diet early. The first week or so of Phase 2 might be slightly challenging, but the remainder of the diet should be relatively easy. During the early stages of Phase 2 you should make adjustments if you find that you're struggling, such as changing up the amount of vegetable servings, increasing your water intake, or spacing out your meals. There's a lot that you can do to make the diet work, and we've discussed some of these techniques in the past on this blog. You shouldn't give up the diet that easily because it really is manageable for the majority of people and at Nu Image Medical you have the full support of a licensed medical staff.

Ask questions as you go along if you run into any issues, and familiarize yourself with the protocol and the requirements of the diet. You'll find that it really is not that difficult to complete once you know what you're doing, and you have the benefit of always being able to contact the medical providers at Nu Image Medical for information or to get clarification on anything. Once you complete Phase 2 of the diet, Phase 3 is a lot easier, and you definitely won't be as tempted to quit once you reach that milestone, but you should do everything in your power to ensure that Phase 2 goes smoothly so that you can transition back to a healthy diet and get the weight loss that you want.

Talk to Nu Image Medical if you are concerned about the HCG diet

If for any reason you are concerned about the requirements of the HCG diet, or if you need to meet with a medical provider to discuss how you should arrange your diet, contact Nu Image Medical today. Our medical providers can give you detailed information on how you can prepare for Phase 2 of the diet so that you will get through it easily, and they will help you through any difficult parts of the diet so that you have the greatest chance of success. You don't get this benefit with most of the other HCG diet programs out there, and it definitely can make the difference regarding whether or not you are able to finish Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the diet and have the weight loss results that you want.
