HCG Diet is one you probably heard about already. It involves taking injections of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). It is known to be an extreme diet. Women make this hormone, HCG, when they are pregnant. Daily injections of HCG and a calories diet define the HCG diet protocol
When you are taking HCG diet, you are limited to 500 calories per day for 8 weeks, no matter if you take a “homeopathic” product, for example oral drops, sprays or pellets, or just shots.
In case a health care provider gives you the HCG injections, they are legal. They have been approved as treatment for fertility issues. However, over-the-counter HCG products are not legal. Several companies that sell HCG hormone received a warning letter from the FDA.
The most asked question is whether HCG diet works or not for losing weight. The answer is definitely yes. However, the question very few people ask is: How does it work for losing weight?
You will not be losing muscle as HCG injections keep you from that. The HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown) by elevating hormone levels in your body (testosterone included).
You will only eat lunch and dinner, so 2 meals a day. The HCG diet menu doesn’t let you eat more than that. One protein, one bread, one fruit and one vegetable is included in each meal. You mustn’t eat visible fat. You may grill or broil chicken breast, lobster, beef, white fish crab, veal and shrimp. Tuna, salmon, herring, eel, pickled or dried fish are definitely not allowed.
The HCG diet menu includes a large variety of vegetables which you can choose from, such as fennel, spinach, chicory, beet greens, chard, tomatoes, celery, onions, red radishes, green salad, cucumbers, asparagus, and cabbage. For bread you can choose either a melba toast or a breadstick. As for fruits, you may choose either an apple, half a grapefruit, an orange or a handful of strawberries.
For the best results of HCG diet: Oil and butter are definitely not allowed. In the meantime, you may drink as much coffee, water and tea as you wish. Also, you may have milk but only up to one tablespoon of it. Sugar substitutes are allowed but you can’t sweeten your drink with sugar.
Over-the-counter HCG products said to be ‘weigh-loss aids’ are illegal, not to mention unproven, says the FDA. Report any sign of harmful side effect to the FDA or at least to your health care professional, in case you develop one. Some people may experience HCG side effects, as they may experience side effects from anything else.
Professionals advise you to monitor your progress, be careful and most importantly ask for medical help in case you feel that something is not right. As the diet is a low calorie one there are a few common HCG side effects that can be developed such as: headaches, light water retention, light headedness and irritability. Most people who reported to have developed these side effects said that they disappeared after a few days.
In case the side effects persist you must talk to your doctor and decide upon the best solution. People who choose to take injections may develop swelling in the injected area as well as redness. However, these side effects usually appear when the injections have not been properly administrated. You should only administrate them on your own if you are qualified to do so. In case you’re not, definitely ask for professional help.
For having no risks of HCG injections side effects, try to use drops instead of injections. The hormonal system is a very sensitive one so you must keep in mind that this is a hormone. Although there weren’t really severe hormonal problems reports, there were reports of swelling, shortness of air, pelvic and stomach pain and a few cases of OHSS (ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome).
As you may already know there are a few different ways to take HCG. You can either take HCG products such as sprays, oral drops or pellets, or you can take HCG injections. HCG injections are said to be the best way, and the most efficient one, to administrate HCG. It is also known that injections are the most likely product to have side effects from but as said before, they are the most efficient.
However, we highly recommend that you talk to your doctor before taking injectable HCG. If he agrees that you should take HCG, consult him upon which method should you use to take HCG. Do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any question regarding the matter. Our doctors will be happy to help you. However, it is very important that you provide us with your medical history before starting to take HCG injections or any other form of HCG.
