Introduction And Background

Dieting is everywhere these days. Even the people who are normal weight have to work at maintaining it. No one is at peace about their weight, except for the people who have a strangely fast metabolism and do not seem to gain any weight no matter how much the eat. The percentage of these people, however, is less than ten percent all over the world. Thus it is the other ninety eating percent who have to watch their weight and do what they can to avoid becoming over weight or becoming any MORE over weight than they already are.


Weight Loss And Maintenance
To be very fair, the best way to maintain weight is to exercise. If you have lost a lot of weight, there are a lot of chances that you’ll gain it back as soon as possible. To maintain that weight is a tough job and there are many people who are not able to do it. However, there are countless ways to maintain your normal weight. But one has to be careful in not going overboard so that they don’t become underweight.


The HCG Diet
This is one of the famous diets that have fast gained popularity because of its effectiveness and fast weight loss. The HCG diet is not considered as one of the best diets out there and even Oprah is discussing it! Well, here are a few things you should know about this diet before we move onto why it can be practiced by normal weight people as well.


  • HCG diet is a fast way to lose weight. It is probably the fastest way to lose weight. Those who have done the HCG diet are pretty happy with it and losing up to thirty to forty pounds in just forty days is like a dream come true for most people. They wouldn’t be able to lose so much weight if they dieted a normal diet for six months!
  • HCG diet does not have any side effects. It might be strange but the HCG drops are homeopathic in nature and that is a safe method. Other than that, the hormone used named Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is very much present inside our bodies and our body does not have any foreign reaction to it.
  • HCG diet does not leave you nutritionally deficient like many other diets which tell you to have only carbs or only proteins. The HCG diet schedule consists of all kinds of foods and it even tells you to drink a lot of water so there is no weakness there.


HCG Diet For Normal Weight People

Another thing to discuss here is that there is a general consensus that the HCG diet is only for those people who want to lose a lot of weight. This is true. The HCG diet is not for those people who are looking to lose only one or two pounds off their body. However, you can do the HCG diet to maintain weight and even lose a little weight if your weight is normal. But then, you have to be very careful as to HOW you diet. Following it religiously for the allotted time period, which is about forty days, is taboo for you then. If you just want to maintain your weight, have the drops now and then and reduce your calories as much as you can. It does not mean that you go to the exact level of five hundred calories per day. But do not have the drops regularly. Be smart about this. If you feel as if you have gained a little weight and need to lose it, do it for a week. Like I said, be smart about it.


Are There Any Dangers Involved?
There will be dangers involved if you are not smart about it. For instance, if you weight about sixty five kilograms and want to go to sixty three, you can do the HCG diet for a week or so. But do not do it for forty days that you become close to fifty kilograms, especially the men since they lose weight more quickly than women. Hence, normal weight people have to think about the process and then take the drops suited to their time and need. They need not take it regularly but they can now and then to reduce a little weight or to maintain their weight.


The HCG diet is a simple diet really and there are no harms to it. There are absolutely no side effects. Some have complained of a headache but that can be because of the limited number of calories they need to have now as compared to their eating habits of before. All is well if you just follow the instructions.
