Following an HCG Weight Loss Protocol – Understanding the Basics
You may have heard about the HCG weight loss protocol and how it could help you shed unwanted pounds. But what does it really involve? The HCG diet, originally developed in the 1950s by British doctor Albert T.W. Simeons, is a multi-phased diet that involves injections of HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin.
While the instructions of your specific diet plan may vary slightly, in general, following the HCG weight loss protocol means that you must:
- Self-administer HCG injections each day
- Consume only 500 calories per day
- Drink plenty of water, at least one gallon daily
- Avoid sugary and starchy foods
At Pharmacy Rx Solutions, we offer a variety of HCG injection kits that can help individuals begin the HCG diet. Our kits feature 20- or 40- day supplies of HCG, syringes, and detailed instructions. When you purchase one of our kits and adhere to the HCG weight loss program for the allotted 20 or 40 days, you could lose from one-half to one full pound per day. Additionally, as you lose weight you may be able to avoid feelings of lightheadedness, hunger, and fatigue, which are some of the most common side effects associated with other low-calorie diets.
