Congratulations! If you’ve decided to order 100% REAL, HCG drops, you’re one step closer to getting rid of those unwanted pounds that you’ve been unable to lose successfully with other diets. Below are a few tips to help you get the most out of the HCG diet with four guidelines to follow in order to maximize the weight loss benefits of the HCG drops:
Stick to Dr. Simeon’s original 500-calorie diet plan.
Perhaps you’re already aware of this, but it’s worth emphasizing: Taking HCG drops alone will not result in weight loss! The purpose of taking HCG along with a low calorie diet ensures that you lose fat, not muscle.
The Very Low-Calorie Diet (VLCD) proposed by Dr. Simeons (the physician who discovered the benefits of HCG and created the HCG diet) allows the body to live off excess fats and calories within the body. HCG drops are just half of the weight loss equation, and maintaining a very low-calorie diet is just as important.
Dr. Simeons spent 20 long years streamlining this very effective, HCG-infused diet. Through trial-and-error and rigorous testing, he came up with food combinations that complement HCG drops.
Here’s the bottom line: If you haven’t read Dr. Simeon’s original protocol for dieting while taking HCG drops, perhaps you should. It will give you a better idea of how HCG promotes weight loss and why a 500-calorie diet plan works best.
Complement HCG drops with lots of water.
Almost everyone is well aware of the 8×8 rule: Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day to help maintain your body’s optimal performance. However, when taking HCG drops while maintaining a low-calorie diet, increased water consumption takes an even greater role. Here are the reasons why:
According to research, about 75% of the total US population are suffering from chronic dehydration. About 37% of these chronically dehydrated Americans experience very weak thirst mechanisms…so weak that they are usually mistaken for hunger pangs.
Every dieter and weight watcher is aware of how ruinous hunger pangs are to weight loss and dieting. Once that churning feeling sets in your tummy, sticking to your low-calorie HCG diet gets twice as hard!
Even worse, dehydration can slow down your fat-burning metabolism by 3%. It may not sound a lot, but that 3% reduction in metabolic efficiency can spell the difference between getting results that’ll make you go “WOW!” and results that’ll make you go “Meh!”
Drinking an 8-ounce glass of water before every meal can significantly decrease your appetite. As a matter of fact, in a study led by researchers from the University of Washington, a glass of water is all it took to eliminate the dreaded midnight hunger in 100% of the participants!
- Increased water intake can help your kidneys and digestive system get rid of waste efficiently and smoothly and prevent constipation, which is one of the most common side effects of a low-calorie, high-protein diet.
So, shove those cans of soda and bottles of juice to the side, and make water your primary drink!
Engage in light, cardiovascular exercises.
Just to make sure we’re on the same page, we don’t encourage engaging in strenuous workouts and physical activities especially during the second phase of the HCG diet. For starters, you’re only permitted to consume only 500-calories per day.
Anything in excess is not good and will by no means make up for cheating on the diet. The same can be said for calorie burning. Burning too many calories will almost always lead to exhaustion, excess hunger, and low blood sugar levels. 500-calories isn’t enough to accommodate any demanding exercise or workout even while taking the HCG drops.
On the other hand, light cardiovascular exercise, such as walking, is permitted. For starters, cardio exercises can significantly improve your heart rate and metabolism, which are vital components in efficient weight management.
Moreover, light exercises may also result in more balanced hormone levels. Casual walks can release ‘feel good’ hormones…hormones that relieve symptoms of fatigue and may decrease appetite.
Again, when taking HCG drops, working out like Arnold Schwarzenegger during his Mr. Olympian days are a huge no-no. But you’re almost guaranteed to get more out of your HCG drops and low-calorie diet, and more apt to keep the weight off in the future, if you add light, cardiovascular exercise to the formula.
Steer clear from any HCG drops that are “homeopathic” or labeled “hormone-free.”
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the Journal of American Medical Association, and even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) all issued stern warnings against companies and online pharmacies that sell “homeopathic” HCG.
The reason is very straightforward: THEY DON’T WORK!
It’s a sad reality – HCG’s rise to fame has spawned expensive homeopathic HCG pills, drops, and even oral sprays. Backed by bold claims and raving reviews, it’s of little wonder why these so-called homeopathic HCG products are selling so quickly. However, because this fraudulent HCG is prepared through homeopathic dilution, these diet supplements contain very small amounts of HCG at most.
Contrary to popular belief, homeopathic remedies are more than just collections of natural cures or medicine alternatives. The term ‘homeopathic’ pertains to a very specific, step-by-step process of consecutive ‘thinning’ of a medicinal ingredient (usually from herbs). The end result of these successive dilutions is a substance, a ‘cure’ as some would call it, which is nothing like the original substance!
Without getting too technical, HCG is a natural-occurring hormone. And for hormones to activate the cell’s receptors and stimulate the desired cellular response, they must not be diluted or genetically altered.
