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

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

Done the hCG diet 2xs, on 30 days stop for 2 wks. This time I've noticed changes to my cycle. Starting on 3 weeks vs 4, twice. Is this due 2 the diet?

Done the hCG diet 2xs, on 30 days stop for 2 wks. This time I've noticed changes to my cycle. Starting on 3 weeks vs 4, twice. Is this due 2 the diet?

Probably: This change is a sign your body is under stress. I am not a fan of the HCG diet as it is too extreme ; tends to result in deficiencies of essential nutrients. We have many toxins stored in fat ; rapid weight loss releases these toxins into our bloodstream while you lack nutrients needed to support proper detox. I advise a slow, steady, sustainable approach to weight loss like http://bit. Ly/1dhw9ht. ...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

Does the hCG diet really work?

Does the hCG diet really work?

Absolutely: You must do the diet under supervision of a qualified physician, injectable HCG not drops, and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet and not a modified version of it with higher calories. You can lose 1-2 lbs of fat per day. Some physicians call this diet dangerous or won't work, but lack an understanding about the diet and it's proven safety. In use since 1950s. ...Read more

How exactly does the HCG diet work?

How exactly does the HCG diet work?

Most people believe: The reason it "works" is because 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?

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

Does the hCG diet really work? Otc or prescribed better?

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. Ask your personal physician whether a crash diet is really right for you. Better, start hanging out with people who are into physical fitness and join in. Unlike a crash diet, this will result in real, sustained good results. ...Read more
