Can A Person With Hyperthyroidism Use The H Cg Diet
What to eat in hCG diet if person does not eat meat fish or eggs. I came to know that quinoa is the one item can be eaten instead of meat?
Accurate information: You might not be aware, but physicians and dieticians are not recommending the hCG diet. I realize the diet is popular and sometimes it's done under supervision of physician, but overall the caloric intake is too low to be healthy. Beans, legumes, dairy, quinoa are some alternatives to animal based proteins. Please make sure that if you are doing this diet, it's under supervision of a physician Read more
Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more
Insufficiency: The diet is really a starvation diet and can cause problems with heart and other organs because you aren't getting enough nutrition and can see consequences from starvation. Do not recommend as not worth weight loss. Add exercise if you want to burn more calories than you are taking in. Not worth harming your body Read more
Likely minimal: The drops which are sold at health food stores are probably a scam with no real active ingredients capable of being absorbed orally. The injections use a tiny dose compared to what is used by specialists to help couples conceive, and is dwarfed by the amount the pregnancy will soon produce. There are no studies, but I suspect the effects would be negligible. If you conceive, the diet is over! Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Depends on the dose, but it would be very safe to say 14 days after last shot. Read more
No: The HCG diet has been studied, and it is not effective for weight loss. Hcg is a hormone produced by your body when you are pregnant. Severe side effects includea ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (massive enlargement of ovaries, breast tenderness, fluid in your lungs, etc.) the only thing that will get thinner on an HCG diet is your wallet! Eat fewer calories and exercise and you will lose weight! Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not a good idea: The HCG diet is neither safe nor effective. It is not approved by the FDA. The hormone human chorionic gonadotropin is produced during pregnancy. The diet recommends severe calorie restriction--500-800 calories--which is likely why people lose in the short term, but it is not safe. And the HCG can contribute to edema and blood clots. Increase physical activity and restrict healthy calories a bit. Read more
After the hCG diet how do you keep the weight off? Can you drink alcoholic beverages on the diet?
You can't!: The major problem with every diet (the hcg, adkins, south beach, etc) is that when you stop it, you always regain the weight when you go back to eating the way way you were before. That's why the diets advertise losing weight quickly but rarely show people who kept the weight off. Remember: alcohol contains calories which can cause weight gain like any other drink. Limit it as much as you can. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
