The short answer – “Bad!” If I were to elaborate, I’d say, “Very Bad.”
Ketosis is a completely safe and normal physiological state that exists when our body becomes deprived of carbohydrates and must there fore resort to our fat stores for energy. In the state of ketosis, long-chain fatty acids are transferred from stored fat to the liver where they are converted into ketones. The ketone, in combination with oxygen, is then converted to ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate), which is the energy exchange used in every cellular process in the human body. HCG facilitates this process, but one should not expect it to do all the work for you. This is why the high-carb fruits and root vegetables must absolutely be removed from the HCG diet if you are going to achieve optimal ketosis levels throughout your HCG diet protocol. This is a key focus of HCG 2.0.
In addition, if you’re teetering on the brink of ketosis, as you typically are when consuming 60 plus grams of carbs that are allowed on the traditional HCG diet, not only will you not achieve consistent weight loss, you’ll also experience intermittent hunger as you won’t be consistently supplied with ketone calories. When your body is being supplied with ketone calories from ketosis, it behaves as though it has just been delivered calories from a meal; with satiety.
