Choose the right weight loss plan for safe effective weight loss:

Repeatedly demonstrated as one of the most effective weight-loss methods uncovered so far, the hCG diet stands out. If rapid and safe weight loss is your goal, the hCG diet presents an opportunity to shed up to 7kg over a 23-day period, it is rare to find a 3-week weight loss plan that allays worries about regaining the lost weight once the initial efforts have paid off.

The hCG program teaches your body how to use fat stores as energy

Interestingly it has long since been thought that if your body goes into starvation mode, particularly when it comes to fast weight loss that your metabolism will crash, therefore there is this misconception that fast weight loss diets don’t work.  This belief is based on a study carried out in World War II, using an exceptionally low protein diet over a period of 6 months in which the participants metabolic rate crashed over this period of time.  There has since however, been several studies showing the opposite effect of fast weight loss diets when the food component of the diet contains moderate amounts of protein combined with low carbohydrate fruits and vegetables.  Research has shown that this combination of low-carb, low-calorie dieting such as the hCG diet and weight loss drops puts the body into a mild state of ketosis giving the benefit of preserving muscles mass which in turn helps burn fat, it also means that you will be left feeling less hungry.

Here are some of the reasons the hCG program is one of the best diet options for losing weight quickly in 3 weeks:

Phase I is about loading your body with good fats

Phase 1 of the hCG diet entails the consumption of ample quantities of nutritious fats. This process effectively stocks your body with beneficial fat reserves, ready to be utilised as an energy source. This mechanism also aids in mitigating hunger, especially in the initial days of Phase 2.

The initial few days of the hCG eating regimen is referred to as the loading phase. Throughout this period, there is an encouragement to partake in high-fat, high-calorie foods. This phase serves the purpose of establishing substantial fat reserves within your body, which will subsequently be utilised for energy during the reduced phase

of reduced calorie intake. The target caloric intake for this stage ranges between 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day. It is recommended to focus on consuming healthful fats such as avocados, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish along with your weight loss drops.

Phase 2 is the rapid weight loss phase.

Maximum weight loss calls for a total avoidance of simple carbohydrates and oils while consuming 500-800 calories a day.

The hCG Diet Australia weight loss plan involves a low-calorie intake of approximately 500-800 calories per day, coupled with the hCG weight loss drops. During this phase, you should eat lean protein, vegetables, and fruits, while avoiding high-carb and high-fat foods. 

However, you don’t have to think of this as a low-calorie diet as your body will source all the additional calories it needs from your abnormal fat stores ensuring it receives all the essential nutrients it requires to remain healthy while still losing the most weight possible.

Here’s a sample meal plan for the low-calorie phase:

Breakfast: Coffee or tea with stevia, one fruit (such as an apple, orange, or grapefruit) 

Snack: A handful of strawberries or other low-sugar fruit 

Lunch: 100g of lean protein (such as chicken breast or shrimp), a serving of vegetables (such as spinach, lettuce, or tomatoes) Snack: A handful of cherry tomatoes or cucumber slices Dinner: 100g of lean protein (such as fish or lean beef), a serving of vegetables (such as broccoli, cauliflower, or zucchini)

You can season your meals with herbs, spices, and vinegar, but avoid using oil or butter for cooking. 

Drink plenty of water, and avoid sugary drinks, alcohol, and processed foods.

This process will liberate fat stores and reset the hypothalamus (the body’s master gland that also controls weight), so that it doesn’t continue to store calories as long-term brown fat, but instead as short-term normal fat.

The hCG program focuses on a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle

During Phase 3 of the hCG diet, the focus shifts to a regimen characterised by reduced starch and sugar intake. This phase is pivotal in solidifying your newly achieved weight set point and acquiring the knowledge necessary to uphold lasting weight loss. The approach involves a gradual reintroduction of foods, affording you the opportunity to gauge your body’s responses to specific food types. This enables the identification of foods that should either be avoided or limited.

As the consumption of protein is escalated during this phase, it serves as an optimal juncture to enhance your physical activity and proudly showcase your transformed physique. These adjustments play a crucial role in maintaining an all-encompassing

healthy lifestyle, starting from the very first day you embark on this journey and continuing for the entirety of your life.

Phase 3 presents a chance to discard outdated notions and habits associated with your previous relationship with food. By consistently adhering to a diet centred around high-quality proteins, beneficial fats, and a wealth of nutritious fruits and vegetables, you extend your lifespan, age more gracefully, experience heightened vitality, and effectively preserve your muscle mass – a vital consideration as you grow older. This mode of eating forms the cornerstone of sustaining your weight loss achievements and upholding your desired weight.

Proponents of the HCG eating plan claim that it can lead to rapid weight loss, improve metabolism, and reduce hunger cravings. Additionally, some studies have shown that the hCG diet can help to preserve muscle mass during weight loss, which is important for maintaining a healthy metabolism.
