The hCG diet is one of the most popular diets today. Many people swear by its weight loss effects and a lot of people are enjoying their new figures because of this.
But as with many diet plans, the hCG diet has a fair share of critics. Some critics point out that there are certain factors in the diet plan that may have contributed to weight loss, and no, it’s not the actual hCG hormone, but rather it is the highly restricted calorie meal plan.
Whether that is the case or not, even if people were successful in losing weight using the hCG diet plan, there are still a lot of skeptics.
So, in this article, I will answer the question: is the hCG diet really effective for weight loss as others have reported?
Before I answer that, let me just give a refresher on what the hCG diet is all about. The hCG diet was created by a doctor that goes by the name A.T.W Simeons. Dr. Simeons accidentally found out about the weight loss effects of the hCG hormone when he administered it to his patients.
After quite some time administering the hormone and giving his patients a calorie-restricted diet, he noticed that his patients lost a significant amount of weight. And after much trial and error, he concluded that the hCG hormone works wonders in eliminating unwanted fat in the body.
The basic premise of the hCG diet is that you have to eat only 500-calories per day and you have to inject yourself with the hCG hormone. If you do not like using hCG injections, there are homeopathic hCG drops also available that does the same thing (and even more).
With that being said, why the overall skepticism? Why has the hCG diet suffered a lot of fire from skeptics? That is because they think the hCG diet is a fake.
The main thing about the hCG diet is that the calorie-restricted meals you’re going to eat during the diet phase are key because when your body only has a few calories, the hormone should supposedly burn the fat and convert it to energy.
That is why even if you consume only 500 calories per day, you will still feel energized because your fat stores will be converted to energy.
They are free to say whatever they want, but the answer to the question: is the hCG diet effective in weight loss is it is indeed an effective diet in burning unwanted fat.
Countless people have tried the hCG diet and they have reported great results. At the end of the day, all you want is a nice, slim, and sexy body. It doesn’t matter if it was because of the hormone or the calorie-restricted meal plan.
But if you want reassurance, then yes, the hCG diet is an effective diet plan for weight loss.
