There are a lot of people who are eagerly looking for a healthy way to lose weight. These individuals will search the Internet, visit bookstores or talk to their friends and family and ask advice on how to lose weight.
Now, there are thousands of weight loss options available. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these weight loss options are simply not effective. Either they do not cause a person to lose weight, or they are so difficult and so restrictive that even if a person can stick to them for a short period of time, they quickly go back to their old dietary habits. Individuals who are on these overly restrictive diets often times find themselves putting on a lot more weight than they lost in the first place.
What people need is a diet and weight loss program that has been proven to be effective and can produce results even after a person reaches their target weight. This is one of the reasons why the HCG diet has been so popular. Not only does it allow people to lose weight, in some cases up to one pound every single day, but it also helps people keep the weight off after they have reached their target weight.
The HCG hormone is produced by pregnant women. Interestingly, when used on an individual who is not pregnant, it is a powerful appetite suppressant. In addition to suppressing a person’s appetite, this hormone also encourages the production of other hormones in the body. The production of other hormones is key in weight loss since many people cannot lose weight because of a hormonal imbalance.
The HCG hormone does not cause a person to lose weight. However, what it does do is make it possible for an individual to stick to a low-calorie diet through the course of their weight loss plan.
When a person is on the HCG diet, they have a limited calorie intake per day. The amount may be as low as one quarter of what most people need to eat every single day. But because an individual is getting periodic injections, they do not feel the desire to eat.
Additionally, the HCG hormone affects the way that the body attacks existing fat. The body does not feed off muscle, but instead the hormone encourages the body to attack fat deposits. These fat deposits are found in trouble weight loss areas, such as the stubborn love handles, behind the arms and on the thighs.
Once a person reaches their target weight, they are able to maintain a healthy exercise and diet routine that allows them to stay at this weight indefinitely. They do not have the strong cravings to binge on food that often accompanies other restrictive diets.
While an individual is on the HCG weight loss program, they are encouraged not to do strenuous exercise. However, once they reach their goal, exercise is a key part of keeping the weight off.
