This post is going to be short and precise. I am going to reveal the real reason for weight loss behind HCG Diet.
The HCG diet has two things, the diet and the drops or injections.
The diet comprises of low calorie diet of three types, they are of 500 calorie, 800 calorie or 1200 calorie.
This is a typical example of low calorie food. Moreover, in this low calorie food you are not allowed to consume fat and sugar.
A typical person requires an average of 3500 calories per day. When you are cutting the calorie to such an extent like 500 calorie this creates a deficit in the person. This deficit is prone to create weight loss.
Supporters of the HCG diet state that HCG hormone is crucial to maintain the weight loss. It is said that the HCG hormone changes the hypothalamus, a part in the brain, that is responsible for the way we eat.
Now, when one person consumes low calorie diet along, with HCG hormone, it is said to change the way of eating.
Wile following low calorie diet and consuming the HCG hormone, the Hypothalamus is said to get re programmed. And thus the person continue to eat low calorie food even after he or she has stopped the HCG diet.
And I would also like to note a point that the HCG diet protocol runs or a month or two.
Here is a scientific fact: Whenever, a person sticks to a habit for more than a month it gets ingrained in him and that new habit gets accustomed to him.
This is the same case with HCG Diet.
The HCG hormone has nothing to do with the HCG diet. When you are sticking with the low calorie you get accustomed to it and hence carry on with the low calorie diet.
HCG hormone has no role in your weight loss.
There you have it, the most hidden secret of HCG diet.
Now, don’t go and shell your hard earned money on HCG hormone, unless you are using it to build muscle or trying to increase your testosterone. Which is a whole different thing and I will talk about it later.
