Introduction And Background

Almost every magazine you’ll pick up these days is bound to have some article on weight loss. Either it’ll contain guaranteed tips on how to reduce your weight or it will contain some exercises to help you lose weight from certain areas of the body. If they are done properly, they might get you to lose weight exactly as the magazine article says but most of the time no one ends up doing the exact routine outlined because they do not see results soon enough. Well, with the HCG diet, this is not a problem at all and people end up doing exactly as asked because they are happy to see the scales moving at a fast pace.

What Is The HCG Diet?
A little introduction on the HCG diet is necessary. It is a diet which consists of homeopathic diluted drops of the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone which is a hormone that is naturally occurring in the body. This hormone, in elevated levels in the body, burns the brown fat that is present which makes us lose weight. The HCG diet are drops which are to be taken daily as instructed. However, the HCG diet is not about the drops only. There are a few things which you have to follow without which the diet will not work. They are:

  • Take a lot of liquids in the diet otherwise you will suffer slow weight loss.
  • Do not exercise because it will inhibit the weight loss process.
  • You have to make sure that the daily calorie intake does not cross five hundred calories.

These are the points you have to take care of. There are certain others but these three have to be followed to ensure perfect weight loss results.

The Role Of Fruits In HCG Diet
There are different phases of the diet that we have to go through. There are some specific foods we have to have during the first week. Then there are some foods that we have to include in our diet during the second week of being on the HCG drops. The HCG drops come with recipes and a manual as well which gives information on everything and every step that comes along while you are dieting. The role of fruits present themselves during the third phase of the diet, which is mainly known as the third week of the HCG diet. This does not mean that you eat fruits in the third week only. You are allowed to have a small portion of fruit every day but the main role comes in the third phase. But this also comes with certain restrictions. You cannot eat any or every fruit. There are some fruits that are not desirable to eat during the HCG diet which recommends these fruits specifically:

  • Apples
    You will find this fruit in possibly every diet, not just the HCG diet. Apples are the best fruit around. They are healthy, nutritious and they fill you up. Apples also satisfy the hunger and contain fiber which keeps the bowel system clean. An apple also has less than eighty calories which is perfect for the HCG diet.
  • Oranges
    This will provide you with vitamins that are essential to the human body. Oranges are delicious, they are juicy and on top of it all they do not contain that many calories either, just like apples. They will also make the immune system stronger and are good to have in the HCG diet. Oranges also have high liquid content which is necessary for the HCG diet.
  • Strawberries
    With such a low calorie diet, you need something to get the sugar running in the blood system. Your brain needs it too. What better way to achieve that than to eat strawberries! You can eat several of them but make sure that you do not over do it and increase the calorie intake to a higher level. They are good for the heart and are good to eat. Other berries, such as blueberries and raspberries are also allowed in the HCG diet but make sure that you do not eat many of them.
  • Grapefruit
    This is not exactly a delicious fruit but it is extremely healthy and good for the hair, the skin and the body. It is a citrus fruit which means that it contains liquid content and it also contains fewer calories. Grapefruit is also known to decrease the appetite which will help in the HCG diet.
