More and more people are taking the time to research a diet trend before following it. They want to know what the diet trend is, what its benefits are, and also what drawbacks it might have. For example, the HCG diet is taking the world by storm. Many people swear that this diet allows them to lose up to one pound every single day. Of course, these claims make some skeptical, and people are asking, will the HCG diet actually work for me?
To answer that question, it is first advantageous to understand what the HCG diet is. It is a low-calorie diet that is administered under the supervision of a medical professional. In addition to reducing your calorie intake while you are on this diet, you will take injections of the HCG hormone. This is a hormone that naturally occurs in pregnant women and suppresses the desire to eat.
The idea is that while you are on the low-calorie diet you will not feel hungry, fatigue, or the moodiness that can accompany other low-calorie diets. Additionally, the hormone is designed to break down fat deposits in your body. These broken down fat deposits are the equivalent of up to 1,500 calories that are absorbed into your body every single day.
It is said that the HCG hormone has a direct effect on your hypothalamus. This is the part of the brain that controls things like your body temperature and whether or not you are hungry. Proponents of the HCG diet say that even though you are on a low-calorie diet, because of the hormone injections, your body will not attack muscle mass.
The HCG diet has many documented benefits. Individuals who strictly follow the diet have been able to lose up to 30 pounds in just one month and because they followed the program, they have a minimized chance of regaining the fat, making for one of the reasons why the HCG diet is so popular. The rapid weight loss will lead to health improvements and a decreased risk for conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
Another thing that attracts people to the diet is that it does not require eating prepackaged foods or taking supplements, but rather just eating natural foods and adhering to the diet provided by medical professionals like the ones at Youthfill MD. Just about anyone who is willing to stick to the diet will see results.
