Why the hCG Diet?

There may be several factors coming into play regarding your decision to embark on the hCG diet. Perhaps you feel like you need to lose a few kgs, maybe you are doing it to support your partner on their weight loss journey.  Maybe you just feel like after the pressures of Covid that you just need to detox a little, feel lighter and more centred.  Whatever your reason for joining the program is, there is without a doubt significant benefit above and beyond weight loss to be gained through your decision to start the hCG diet Australia rapid weight loss plan.

What are the Benefits?

This diet burns fat quickly if you stick to the plan. It involves using a combination of a very low carbohydrate diet (VLCD) alongside naturopathically tested homeopathic weight loss drops and it gets even better, there is absolutely no need to exercise if you choose not to.

The greatest benefit of the hCG diet is that you will see quick weight loss, the removal of stubborn fat that you may not have been able to shift for years, think love handles here.

Imagine how motivating it is to be on a diet in which when you jump on the scales every morning you see a shift. In addition to fast weight loss, you will find that cravings become minimal, aches and pains tend to disappear as inflammation is reduced in your body, you will have more energy and sleep better then you may have done previously.

Although it seems ridiculous at the outset to think that by consuming as little as 500 calories a day you will still have energy, the inclusion of the weight loss drops allows your body to release stored fat into the bloodstream and use this as energy.  By taking hCG in smaller homeopathic doses this allows the drops to work on your metabolism, suppress your appetite and adjust it so that you can readily accept the low-calorie diet.

Can Men Successfully Do the HCG Diet?

I think there are some misconceptions regarding weight loss particularly when it comes to marketing.  Is it just me or have you noticed that advertising in weight loss mainly targets women?

Yet we have had several enquiries from men asking if it is possible for them to join our growing number of clients who have enjoyed great success from the program and the answer is a resounding yes!  During our time in clinic, we were lucky enough to have enjoyed some fabulous success stories from our male client’s.

Although hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadatropin) is a hormone that is naturally produced by pregnant women this diet is highly effective in men as well, in fact in our clinical experience men tend to lose weight twice as quickly as women when following the program.  Which is pretty annoying if you are a woman doing this with your partner and they are losing weight quicker than you are 😊 In all honesty I completed the program with my husband and although he did lose weight much quicker than I did, it was great having the support of someone doing the diet with me and experiencing the same gains that I did.  My husband also works a very physical job, and he was amazed at how much clarity, energy and focus he had on the job while completing the program.  After just 14 days we decided to increase the number of calories that he was consuming from 500 – 800 calories as he had released enough fat and we wanted to stabilize his weight and then we completed the 21 days together feeling much healthier, and far more energized, it was almost like rebooting our bodies.

Adding the extra calories is another benefit of the diet as it can be adjusted based on individual circumstances including physical work, or the amount of weight that you plan to lose.

Men in general carry more muscle than women, I feel that this is one of the reasons that men tend to lose weight quicker than women while on the program.  Muscle allows for a more robust metabolism which will help you burn more calories, maintaining muscle mass when dieting is a key component of successful weight loss.  Most calorie restricted diets may result in water loss alongside muscle loss which is broken down for energy while the body stores fat as it goes into survival mode. I must say that this is by far one of the best diet’s I have seen for reducing fat without seeing a significant loss of muscle in the individual dieting.

As you can see both men and women will benefit from completing the hCG diet, journal your progress, this will help you keep on track.  Make sure that you are keeping a daily record of your weight, you will find this is a great motivator and last but not least, be kind to yourself.  This is your time, make it count.
