Medicine Has Progressed – So Should Your HCG Diet
When was the last time your doctor walked into your treatment room with a cigarette in their mouth? It’s likely never happened, right? At least I hope not. I suggest this unlikely scenario because that’s exactly what doctors were doing when the original HCG diet was first published back in 1954.
You would never consider seeing a doctor that smoked in your treatment room, so why would you consider a diet protocol that’s equally as old and out of date?
When I first began working with HCG weight loss and the original HCG diet in 2009, I was a bit skeptical. A diet that consisted of only 500 calories didn’t seem sustainable. Nor did it make sense to limit ALL dieters to only 500 calories, whether big or small, male or female. However, the diet produced results.
Most would lose 20-30 pounds over the course of their 30-40 day HCG diet. I liked the results my patients were getting, but I didn’t like hearing about their excruciating hunger. As a result, I began to tweak with it; removing unnecessary carbs and substituting more nutrition rich protein and vegetables. Ultimately, the result was HCG 2.0.
HCG 2.0 is a contemporary revision of the original HCG diet. It’s customized to each individual dieter using a BMR calculation to determine the daily calorie allowance based on the dieters height, weight, gender and age. It makes sense, right? The daily calorie allowance, specifically in regard to protein, should be much higher for a 6’3” man than it should for a more petite woman. To determine your daily calorie allowance on HCG 2.0, visit my homepage at InsideOut Wellness & Weight Loss to complete the BMR calculation on the right of the intro video.
Additionally, HCG 2.0 has removed a majority of the carbs that were allowed on the original HCG diet making it a more ketosis based protocol. The unnecessary carbs have been replaced with calories from protein, healthy fats and phytonutrition derived from vegetables.
A diet isn’t merely about removing calories from your diet, but rather adding the proper nutrition the bodies need to remedy a skewed satiety response. If you give the body what it needs it rewards you with a feeling of satiety and fullness. This is the key to sustainable weight loss – giving the body what it needs.
The result of all of these revisions is a diet that leads to the same rapid weight loss of the original HCG diet without the debilitating hunger. Oh, and I should also mention that HCG 2.0 is currently the top rated diet of 2016 ranked by Consumer Affairs.
Best of luck in reaching your weight loss goals,
