The HCG diet has been around for years, however, within the last year it has become the new weight loss fad. My husband and I have tried this diet, we had to see what all the hype was about. During this little weight trial, I lost several pounds within the first week, my husband lost a lot more. From everything I have seen men always tend to lose more weight on this diet. There are many pros and cons to the HCG diet, this is one of those diets you do at your own risk.
If you are considering the HCG diet, I do recommend you do your homework. There are many sites out there that have great information on the HCG diet. I know when I was thinking about doing it, I researched and found YourHCG. YourHCG sells the drops, and also full diet programs. This isn’t a diet you just jump into, it is very important that you study the diet, to see if it is for you.
When my husband and I did it we started out really good, our bodies got to where we were not needing as many calories to go on. I personally did not do this diet all the way through and I did see great results, everyone’s results will vary. This is not what you would call a lose weight fast diet. You have to remember when you are trying to lose weight, you have to work your behind off to keep it off. I have been on many diets, only to go back to my old eating habits.
Losing weight isn’t just about what you eat, it is about when you eat, and how much you eat. I personally felt the HCG diet helped me with better portion control, since I was eating smaller amounts several hours a day. If you are thinking about trying this diet for yourself, I recommend checking out the YourHCG’s facebook page, were you will see images of real people’s progress. You will also be able to get support from others on this same diet.
Always remember losing weight is not a 6 month thing, it is a rest of your life thing. You will always have to maintain what you eat and how much you move your body. Failing to do so will mean those numbers will climb again on the scale. Chances are if you were already big those numbers will climb fast. So once you lose those unwanted pounds try not to go back to your old ways.
