People are opting for various ways including techniques and medicines in order to to help in reducing their weight. In addition, people are looking for fast results today, which is easily being achieved by the HCG diet. It diet protocol was founded by Dr. ATW Simeons. You can know all its interesting facts as well as uses by going through “Pounds and Inches” written by him. This book explains that the HCG diet protocol places a much higher importance on the proteins being a food source. Next, a few guidelines have also been placed for regular diets so that better results can be achieved from this diet. Also mentioned is the role played by fruits and vegetables in providing fibers in order to prevent constipation. It is advised to stay away from the dairy products such as milk and eggs as well as avoid massage of any type.
To understand this diet protocol properly, you need to understand the various phases that are involved in it. The three phases in this diet protocol are the Loading Phase, and the Maintenance Phase besides the Stabilization Phase.
These are the first 2 days of the HCG weight loss therapy. It is termed as the Loading Phase. During this phase, the user can eat as much as possible of high calorie food. This will help them for preparing their body for the phase of low-calorie diet that will follow. During this phase, 10-15 drops of HCG diet are to be consumed 3 times in a day. In order to get better results, 6-10 drops of HCG diet can be taken six times in a day.
This phase starts after the first 2 days of loading phase are over. This phase will last for nearly 21 days. Based on the requirement, it may even stretch for about 40 days. During this phase, a 500-calorie diet is introduced which is also known as the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). In order to prepare the body for this type of diet, you need to combine it along with 10-15 drops of HCG that are to be taken three times a day. With this, all the fat reserves in the body will get burned as energy ranging from 1500-4000 calories will be released in the blood stream. This additional energy combined with the intake of a 500-calorie diet on a daily basis will aid in metabolism. It will also help to melt the excessive fat of the body. All this will make the users slimmer. Users need to avoid sugar, starch as well as fried food products during this phase. Women can resume this course after their menstruation immediately.
The last phase following the maintenance phase is this phase. The users in this phase can skip their oral drops. They need to shift from VLCD to a Controlled diet but with moderate restrictions. They still need to avoid sugar as well as starch completely in order to stabilize the lost weight. The daily intake in this phase will be 800 calories in case of women and nearly 1000 calories in men.
For users who are not satisfied with this diet protocol results, are recommended to take as many rounds of this protocol as they want. They need to keep a distance of at least six weeks between various rounds of this diet.
