The hCG protocol for losing weight is like no other diet plan you’ve ever followed. The difference in this diet plan and the others is that this one really works. You’ll be amazed at how the pounds melt off your body – and it’s been around for over thirty years.
An hCG protocol involves using either hCG shots or liquid drops inserted beneath the tongue. Following the diet plan and the hormone regime will reset your metabolism so that it keeps burning fat calories even when the diet ends. It doesn’t matter which method you decide to use – they’re both equal in their effectiveness for weight loss.
Along with hCG hormone injections or oral hCG drops, you’ll complete three diet phases designed to jump start your metabolism. hCG followers say that the hormone they’re taking during the extremely restrictive diet quashes their hunger pains and cravings, making it much easier to stick to the 500 calorie per day regimen.
If you decide to adhere to Dr. Simeon’s hCG protocol, you’ll choose the injections over the drops and the hCG diet plan will be much more restrictive.
Kevin Trudeau, who wrote the controversial book about hCG, entitled, “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want You to Know About,” suggests adding vitamin supplements to the regimen and bring interest to bland foods by using spices.
Either hCG protocol is said to produce the same results, and most people are reluctant to give themselves injections, so the oral drops would be the best choice. As for the hCG diet plan that accompanies the injections or drops, Trudeau’s method of spicing up the flavor of the meat, vegetables and fruit will help you stick to the diet plan and not become bored with its limited offerings.
You may also choose to get hCG injections from your doctor, but that’s an expensive solution to the hCG protocol. A doctor could also give you a prescription for the shots or you could order them from an online vendor. Just be sure you’re getting the real thing and that the company you’re ordering them from is reputable.
One factor in the hCG protocol for weight loss is that no or very little exercise is recommended or required. During the 500-calorie per day diet, your body will become weak from the shock of so few calories to keep it going, so on those days you should rest and conserve your energy.
hCG diet fans have said that after awhile they regain their energy levels and even have more than they’re accustomed to. Other side effects that some hCG protocol followers say they’ve experienced are headaches, irritability, tender muscles, bloating and water retention. These side effects aren’t experienced by most people and tend to go away after a few days.
The hCG protocol isn’t always easy to follow, but if you want a fast, reliable weight loss plan that will reset your metabolism and burn fat calories even after you stop the plan, the hCG diet plan may be what you’re looking for.
