Is the HCG Diet Plan Right for You?
If you’re considering following the HCG diet plan as way to jump start your journey to weight loss, you’re probably wondering what exactly the diet entails. Luckily, the experts at Pharmacy Rx Solutions can help teach you about the diet and explain how it works.
The HCG diet was developed in the 1950s by a British doctor named Albert T.W. Simeons. He studied the pregnancy hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and its ability to trigger a woman’s brain to access stored fat as a source of nutrients in the event that her fetus is malnourished.
Simeons began studying the hormone, believing that HCG could elicit a similar reaction in non-pregnant women and men who are overweight. He postulated that, by self-administering daily HCG injections and following the HCG diet, weight would melt off his test subjects. His diet protocol is not an easy one to maintain, but many individuals – including some in Simeons’ studies – found that they were able to lose weight. Following the HCG diet protocol requires you to:
- Consume no more than 500 calories per day
- Drink upwards of one gallon of water daily
- Avoid starchy and sugary foods
- Self-administer one measured HCG shot each day
