As you’ve probably known by now, the hCG diet is one of the most highly recommended diet in the world. It is recommended by people because of the diet’s ability to help people lose a lot of fat in just a short amount of time.
Now, the HCG diet requires you to do two main things: Eat a calorie restricted diet (of only 500-calories per day) and have yourself injected with the hCG hormone for a few weeks (depending on your program).
This is good on the surface, but a lot of people are asking, “is this diet really doable?”
Before I answer that question, the founder of the hCG diet, Dr. Simeons, put fat in 3 categories:
Category 1: Dr. Simeons calls this category as the Structural Fat. Structural fats, according to Dr. Simeons, are the kind of fat that embeds our internal organs to protect it from harmful elements. These are the good kinds of fat, as they are very important in keeping our organs healthy.
Category 2: This category is what Dr. Simeons referred to as Normal Reserve Fat. If you remembered your Biology class, unused energy is stored as fat by our bodies. This category is basically just that. Since we consume copious amounts of calories, and we never burn them (either through sports or exercise), it turns into fat, thus making us look unattractive. But, Dr. Simeons pointed out that this is still a normal type of body fat because it is just what the body does: it stores unused energy. In theory, you can just burn fat again if you decide to go do exercising or any physical activity.
Category 3: The third and final category of fat is what Dr. Simeons refers to as “abnormal fat”. In category 2, he points out that the body just stores unused energy as fat, and can be burned when doing physical activities. But, this 3rd category of fat is just stored in the body, which is a little bit harder to eliminate. Ever wonder why you get a bulging belly, even if you’ve nearly toned all other areas of your body? That is what Dr. Simeons wants people to get rid of, that is why he devised the hCG diet.
Now that you know the Three fat categories that Dr. Simeons have researched through his years, the hCG diet plan was created because of that. He wanted people to get rid of unwanted fat with the use of the hCG hormone.
Why the hCG hormone? He uses the hCG hormone for weight loss because he found out that his patients, men and women alike, were able to lose a lot of unwanted weight in just a span of a few weeks.
Now, with the history lesson out of the way, the question still remains, is the hCG diet doable? The answer to that is yes and no.
The answer is Yes, it is doable only if you have the determination and willingness to eat only a few calories per day for weeks on end. Also, if you’re brave enough to inject yourself every day while you’re on the diet program, then yes, it is very doable.
On the other hand, the answer is a no if you have the fear of just eating a few calories per day and injecting yourself for days up to a few weeks.
The hCG diet was popular because some people can do it, and some people cannot. Which side are you on?
