According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
In 2017–18, an estimated 2 in 3 (67%) Australians aged 18 and over were overweight or obese (36% were overweight but not obese, and 31% were obese). That’s around 12.5 million adults. With men boasting higher rates of overweight and obesity than women (75% of men and 60% of women), and higher rates of obesity (33% of men and 30% of women).
Also, consider that as a species we are living longer. The World Health Organisation suggests that between 2015 and 2050, the proportion of the world’s population over 60 years will nearly double from 12% to 22%, living longer, hey, I say bring it on!
But wait! The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare provides statistics about chronic conditions and reports on 8 common conditions: arthritis, asthma, back pain, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and mental health conditions.
These 8 common conditions have a significant impact on Australians, as:
- 1 in 2 Australians (50%) has at least 1 of these conditions
- 3 in 5 Australians (60%) aged over 65 years have more than 1
I don’t know about you, but these statistics blow me away and I for one would much prefer to age healthier than spend my last 20+ years suffering from poor health.
Thankfully, there is also a huge amount of evidence regarding the influence of diet and exercise in reducing age-related disease. Therefore, it is important to look at ageing from a life course perspective.
When considering the best weight loss program for men, consider the hCG diet as it is a low-fat, low-calorie diet that has been a highly effective weight loss tool for both men and women for many years.
The greatest benefit of the hCG weight loss diet for men is that you will see rapid weight loss and the removal of stubborn fat that you may not have been able to shift for years.
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, and you will have more energy and sleep better than you may have done previously, more on this later.
The hCG weight loss diet for men is broken up into 3 Phases:
- Loading phase. Start taking hCG man drops and eat plenty of high-fat, high-calorie foods for 2 days.
- Weight loss phase. Continue taking hCG man drops and eat only 500 calories daily for 3 to 6 weeks.
- Maintenance phase. Stop taking hCG diet man drops. Gradually increase your food intake but avoid sugar and starch for 3 weeks.
All main meals incorporate 100gm of any allowable protein and a vegetable served and we have purposely set out our meal plan so that you are consuming breakfast, lunch and dinner plus snacks. The reason behind this is that it means that you are regularly eating and are therefore much less likely to experience the highs and lows of blood sugar imbalance. When your blood sugar drops you may experience lethargy, headaches, and food cravings. So even if you don’t feel hungry at the time it is important to ensure that you do eat regularly and keep your blood sugar levels regulated.
The hCG weight loss for men program teaches your body how to use your body’s fat stores as energy.
During our research, we developed what is now known as our Bioenergetic hCG drops also known as “Man Drops” homeopathic hCG drops. This formula works as a very effective rapid fat metaboliser, this process will liberate fat stores and reset the hypothalamus (the body’s master gland that also controls weight).
You rely on your metabolism to breathe, think, digest, circulate blood, keep you warm in the cold, and stay cool in the heat. It is believed that by raising your metabolism you burn more calories increasing weight loss. We combine our premium, sublingual (under the tongue) drops with a very low-calorie diet plan mentioned in the 3 phases above.
In accessing your abnormal fat stores, hard-to-shift areas that tend to accumulate fat i.e. stomach, buttocks, thighs or arms are no longer frustratingly hard to shift. The program results in a more even fat distribution by removing abnormal fat stores and works to replace structural fat in the areas needed without you having to slog it out at the gym for weeks on end to see similar results. Using the hCG man drops alongside a VLCD means that your body will suppress your appetite so that you won’t be hungry, and you will be burning fat for energy, say goodbye to the spare tire.
The hCG weight loss diet for men has many other health benefits including, pain reduction. If you have ever experienced pain, particularly for lengthy amounts of time you will also be aware of the impact on both your mental health and physical health. Losing weight means that there is much less pressure on your joints and with additional strength training you can build and strengthen muscles aiding in the reduction of muscle pain and tension. One of the biggest advantages of the hCG man drops and protocol is that it is an anti-inflammatory diet, imagine a life of noticeable pain reduction as inflammation leaves the body.
On average, Australians get 6.5 hours of sleep a night, but 12 per cent clock up 5.5 hours or less. Up to 45 per cent of people have poor sleep patterns and the number of health issues caused has risen by up to 10 per cent since 2010.
Many of our clients have commented on how much their sleep has improved since completing the hCG weight loss diet for men. Imagine hopping into bed at night to get a good 7-8 hours of sleep that night before you must get up to start the next day and being able to fall to sleep within minutes. Imagine not waking during the night and the impact that it will have on your energy levels and mood the next day.
The hCG man drops and program reduce the average person’s sugar consumption considerably, sugar and high carbohydrate foods wreak havoc with your blood sugar regulation. This often takes the form of energy highs & lows experienced throughout the day (yes, the 3 pm slump which has you looking for a caffeine or sugar hit) to give you a much-needed boost. By cutting the sugar and regulating blood sugar levels these daily energy slumps will stop and furthermore will contribute to a better night’s sleep.
