hCG Diet

What is hCG?

hCG is an acronym for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin. It is a hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of their pregnancy. Studies have shown that a small, daily hCG supplement results in weight loss for most healthy individuals. The weight loss from the hCG is usually around 1 to 2 lbs per day, and often more, when accompanied by a very low calorie diet.

What is VLCD

VLCD stands for Very Low Calorie Diet. A VLCD is around 500 calories, and requires careful observance to this strict limit. Most successful hCG Diets include hCG Meal Plans that outline acceptable foods and when to eat them.

What is the hCG Diet?

The hCG diet consists of three stages. The hCG Diet stages are:

  • Loading
  • Burning
  • Maintenance

The loading stage requires that you begin taking the hCG and load with foods that are high in carbohydrates and fats. This is done so that your body will begin to adapt to the effects of the hCG.

In the burning stage you begin the VLCD while continuing with the drops.

The maintenance stage requires that you not eat any sugar or starches for a period of time.
