Why Use the HCG Diet For Fat Loss?

Using the HCG Diet For Fat Loss

If you are on the fence about starting the HCG diet as opposed to another diet for fat loss, keep in mind that the HCG diet offers one of the most effective ways to lose weight quickly with minimal side effects. The HCG diet offers you the ability to lose 0.2 to 1 pound per day over a course of 26 to 46 days, and it is one of the safest (if not the safest) very low calorie diets available.

When you start on the HCG diet and reduce your caloric intake, the HCG hormone ensures that your excess fat is burned as your body's primary source of energy. Other diets will result in the breakdown of muscle and your metabolism will also slow down because your body will be in "€œstarvation mode."€

The HCG diet is for everyone

A common misconception about the HCG diet is that it is only for obese people. This could not be further from the truth, as the HCG diet can help people with lower weight loss goals achieve rapid and safe results. Obese people certain have much to benefit from starting the HCG diet, but people with weight loss goals of less than 15 pounds can safely use the HCG diet.

If you have a weight loss goal of under 15 pounds, you would simply participate in the 26 day HCG diet which would help you lose anywhere from 0.2 to 1 pound per day, and you will carefully track your results during this time period while receiving advice from medical professionals (if you sign up for our program). You will be evaluated by a medical professional before starting the diet at Nu Image Medical, and you will be approved unless there is an alternative option such as the Ultra Burn program that may be more suitable for you based on a particular medical concern.

The HCG diet prevents your body from going into starvation mode

The HCG diet is unique because it prevents your body from going into starvation mode when your calories are restricted. Your metabolism will not be damaged because your body will be getting all of the energy it needs through the breakdown of abnormal fat.

This is especially important once you come off of the diet because your metabolism will continue to function at a normal level once you start eating other foods. Other diets can harm your metabolism and cause you to gain fat quickly once you come off the diet. The HCG diet will keep you lean and protect you from weight gains as long as you follow the diet protocol and maintain healthy eating habits after the diet is finished.

You will see rapid results on the HCG diet

Compared to other diets, the HCG diet will give you fast and easily observable results. Your BMI will be reduced by the time the diet is finished, sometimes dramatically, and a reduction in BMI means that you will be less likely to develop several chronic illnesses.

Within just a week or sooner your energy levels can improve as your body starts to detoxify from the effects of an unhealthy diet, and you will notice a large amount of weight loss during the first two weeks.

There may be plateaus while on the diet for many reasons, but there are ways to break plateaus, and as long as you follow the diet protocol to the best of your ability, you will see a major reduction in your weight and body fat percentage by the end of the diet.

The HCG diet will improve your metabolism

The HCG diet will help you get rid of bad eating habits and change your cravings for the better. You can use the HCG diet to help you detoxify your body if you have not been eating well recently. It can improve your metabolism and it will reset your hypothalamus to reduce your cravings for unhealthy and unnatural foods.

With the HCG diet changing your appetites, you will not feel the same urges that you did in the past to eat unhealthy foods and junk foods, and this effect will reduce the chance that you will put weight back on after the diet is finished. Also, your metabolism will be improved so that when you do have unhealthy meals after the diet is over, your body will process them more efficiently and will be less likely to store excess calories as abnormal fat.

You can repeat the diet if necessary

After a six week break you can repeat the HCG diet if you would like, and this allows you to continue to reduce your body weight until you reach your desired weight. Being able to repeat the diet also allows you recover if you revert to some of your unhealthy eating habits after the diet is over. Some people may choose to repeat the diet every year or two as a way to detox and reduce their body fat percentage.

You can also repeat the diet if you did not stick to the diet protocol very well the first time around, which is not a big deal because the HCG diet is not that easy to learn and sometimes takes multiple attempts. The first time you try the HCG diet may be a test run and you will likely see great results even if you slip up on it. When you try the diet the second time you'll have the experience to know what to expect and how to implement the diet, and you will likely see even better results than the first time.

You will have medical supervision

If you sign up for the HCG diet at Nu Image Medical you will be participating in a medically supervised diet. This is the most important consideration for any diet program that you choose. Most diet programs do not offer any sort of medical consultation, which reduces the safety of the diet. At Nu Image Medical you will be able to speak directly with medical professionals prior to starting the diet and afterward, and you'll get a detailed evaluation of your health.
