DR OZ: WHAT IS THE HCG DIET PLAN & HOW DOES IT WORK?

Dr. Oz on the Hcg Diet.

What is the Hcg Diet Plan, and why are so many millions of people raving about the rapid and long term weight loss effects? Chances are, you’ve come across someone that has used the Hcg Diet Plan successfully, and has lost a significant amount of weight in a very short period of time.  Perhaps a relative, a coworker, or maybe even that “friend of a friend” you met over the holidays.  Well, we are not surprised! Hcg Diet Info has seen millions of Hcg Diet success stories over the years.  That’s because the Hcg Diet Plan is more than just a weight loss diet. It is medical hormone therapy, designed to reprogram your metabolism and create life long changes with food relationships, eating habits and health mindset.

The HCG Diet Plan involves the use of a carefully planned diet of healthy, quality foods for nutrition and tiny amount of the pro-hormone, HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) administered through injections, drops, or pellets.  Originally published by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in his Manuscript, Pounds and Inches, the diet initially called for a rigid protocol with little flexibility, lack of exercise recommendations, and a specific list of allowed foods.  Times have changed however, and the HCG Diet has evolved into a number of modern protocols.  Today’s HCG Diet involves a low calorie diet with an expanded food list, exercise and a strong focus on learning healthy habits for lifelong weight maintenance.  Read a quick overview of the Original HCG Diet here.

HOW DOES THE HCG DIET WORK? 

The Hcg Diet combines the use of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) with a specific, very low calorie diet of whole foods.  It is designed to cleanse, break food habits and food addictions, develop healthy portion control and conscious eating habits, for rapid loss of adipose fat tissue.

hCG does NOT cause you to lose weight.  It changes HOW you lose weight.  Where most diets result in muscle loss and a stalled metabolism from the body’s diet-induced “starvation mode,” a small amount of the hormone, hCG, keeps this from happening.  This allows the dieter to continue losing weight at an impressive rate.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND HCG FOR WEIGHT LOSS

hCG is the pro-hormone that is produced by all individuals, men and women alike. It is produced in large amounts by women during pregnancy and is known for being the catalyst hormone that stimulates the production of other hormones throughout the body. These in turn, effect the body’s metabolism, muscle tissue, digestion, liver functions and much more. It is no secret that hormone function and balance is known to be one of the most common causes of weight challenges, especially severe obesity. HCG’s role in the diet plan, helps the body to balance out these issues, which in turn enables the body to function at an optimal rate of performance. Read more about how HCG works for weight loss.

HCG DIET RECIPES AND HCG DIET FOOD LISTS

HCG Diet recipes and foods are the backbone of the HCG Diet.  While the pro-hormone, HCG, changes HOW your body loses weight, it is actually the food diet that is responsible for your weight loss.  This is good news! This means the HCG Diet can work with any number of diet menus, foods and recipes.

While the actual foods eaten on the HCG diet can vary according to which protocol the individual is following, the suggested higher calorie plans are recommended by the New HCG Diet Plan. These average around 1395 calories but are ultimately based on the individual’s own BMR.  Focus is placed on portion control, increased vegetables and proteins, and a food list that is much broader and less restrictive than the original diet.

The original Simeons HCG protocol prescribed a strict VLCD (very low calorie diet) of 500 calories. This approach allowed only a select number of foods per day, limited vegetables and fruits as well as an extremely short and strict food list. While many dieters continue to follow this plan, there are few doctors that have not switched to suggesting the more modern, expanded HCG Diet Food List.

HCG Diet Plan Cooking Tips & Recipes

Already worried you’ll miss your favorite hamburger on the menu? Have no fear- the NEW HCG Diet can still work with your favorite foods and there are hundreds of HCG Diet Recipes available for you to choose from on HDI or in our recommended HCG Diet Cookbooks. From sauce recipes for Phase 1, to dinner recipes for Phase 2 and healthy dessert recipes for Phase 3. Take your pick- bon apetit!

The Original Manuscript by Dr. Simeons: HCG Diet Protocol, “Pounds and Inches”

Dr. Simeons book, “Pounds and Inches” is the very detailed, original manuscript of the HCG diet Plan. It includes everything from body chemistry, to the very specific 500 calorie diet known as VLCD or Very Low Calorie Diet. Even if you are following a different protocol, it is still suggested that you read the original manuscript to understand how the diet works and the important aspects of the protocol that will ensure your weight loss.  The original manuscript: Pounds and Inches” by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons.
