Could you tell me what happens if you eat yogurt with granola on hCG diet?

Depends: Do not follow the 500 cal HCG diet. You can have yogurt with granola for breakfast with the HCG diet. The worst it may do is slow down the weight loss slightly. I do HCG in my office, and never restrict calories below 1200. Starvation is not desired nor allowed in my office. ...Read more

Is the official hCG diet plan. Com safe? I am 12 lbs. Over weight, eat right and exercise. 49, f.

NO: The more I have investigated the otc hcg--which is not HCG. A pregnancy hormone-similar to lh/progesterone effects. The rx hcg
may be real human chorionic gonadotropin, but we do not understand the effects it may have on patients---esp if they would have an unknown early cancer? Do not take any chances. Apparently, you can get rx HCG online by a doc------not o-k. ...Read more

I've been on the hCG diet for one week so far and I am getting really hungry. I have cheated by eating nuts. Will this stop me form losing weight?

I've been on the hCG diet for one week so far and I am getting really hungry. I have cheated by eating nuts. Will this stop me form losing weight?

Yes: You must follow the diet originally created by dr. Simeon. If you are getting hungry than you are not on real HCG or the proper dose. The only way to do this diet is under supervision of a qualified physician and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet. When done the right way, you will not be hungry. The wrong nuts have high fat content which is counter to the diet. ...Read more

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

How does the hCG diet work?

How does the hCG diet work?

Not very well.: The weight loss is due to the severe caloric restriction. In men with low testosterone and normal testicles, it may work better because the HCG will increase the testosterone level. In women, HCG may increase progesterone. Higher Progesterone may lead to less anxiety and therefore less eating. Overall, smart eating plus increased activity is a better choice. ...Read more

How exactly does the HCG diet work?

How exactly does the HCG diet work?

Most people believe: The reason it "works" is that of the severe calorie restriction--500 kcal/day-- associated with it. Theoretically, HCG may exert some appetite suppressant qualities which make it easier to only eat 500 calories. A pregnancy hormone, HCG is a pro-hormone and may promote other hormones, i.e. thyroid. Most authorities are skeptical of its safety and effectiveness. Target: 1200 cal/day + exercise. ...Read more

Is the hCG diet and injections safe and effective?

NO: I get asked this question a lot. I tell patients think about what you're doing exactly: 1. Taking a hormone that can modulate other hormones and is only elevated during pregnancy (un-natural)
2. You're ingesting merely 500 calories, some docs have modified it to 750 calories. But still too low for any person. It works as an immediate, fast tool for weight loss but not for good! ...Read more

Scam: This is a very-low-calorie diet with an expensive placebo. You'll lose weight by restricting calories, and spend money for something that will do you no good.
