HCG Diet – Simple Hints and Tips

Introduction and background

Dieting is always in the news. With obesity on the rise in the US, news shows and television talk shows all advocate that you eat sensibly to lose unwanted pounds. Developed in 1954, the HCG diet has seen resurgence in the number of advocates today. HCG is a hormone released in pregnant women during the early stages of pregnancy to begin burning fat in preparation for the carrying the fetus. Injections or supplementation with HCG coupled with a very low calorie diet has shown results for helping people lose weight.

1. Watch what you’re eating; you should have a food journal and you might find patterns of foods that cause you not to lose, or to lose fantastically. A lot of people have had losing with tomatoes and oranges (but some people have no problem at all).

Everybody is different and you need to monitor your own body and see what works (and doesn’t work) for you.

2. Make sure you are drinking enough water (at least 2 liters a day).

3. Those that have held true to the diet and not cheated have been rewarded with a large weight reduction when it finally drops. You will usually resume your previous average loss before the stall.

4. Each time you stall, take your measurements; you have probably lost inches (remember it is called Pounds and INCHES).

5. You could gain some weight and not have cheated, depending on your menses, ovulation, and hormones. Almost all of us have seen the scale go up due to water retention, etc.

6. If you eat more salt in the food you prepare, and your body isn’t used to that sodium level, your blood volume will increase to handle the extra salt, which will translate into a gain because you’re retaining water to boost that blood volume. In other words, watch your salt intake.

7. Remember what Simeons said about losing. You lose fat from the body cells but the cells do not disappear at the same time. The cell structure is still present for two to three days while the body breaks down the cellulose and fills the cell with water in order to release it (through urine). Once the fat cell is removed, the scale will drop.

8. Sensitivity/allergies to foods (like lemons) may cause weight stalls. Listen to your body. The guru is you!

9. Pay attention to weight gains, they usually signify a mishap in the protocol, like not drinking enough water, eating too many/too few calories, too much salt, or (inadvertently) eating foods not allowed on the protocol.

10. Be careful, spices have calories. As long as the serving size listed has less than 5 calories, the company can list 0 calories (even though it may actually have 4). Usually  spices and seasonings use 1/4 of a teaspoon as their serving size, so BE CAREFUL…

4  calories in 1/4 teaspoon = 16 calories in 1 teaspoon. Account for every calorie, no matter

how miniscule it may seem. Here is an exact calorie count per TABLESPOON of various

spices:

1TB Onion Powder = 22.54 calories

1TB Garlic Powder = 27.91 calories

1TB Chili Powder = 23.55 calories

1TB Paprika = 19.94 calories

1TB Poultry Season = 11.36 calories

1TB Oregano = 13.77 calories

11. Weight gains/stalls may take a few days to kick in. For example, you could mix your veggies for a few suddenly reflect the breaking of the rules. Many people believe a stall comes out of nowhere, but it is usually instigated by something (if not a previous weight set point).

12 It is important to know that what works for one person days and assume there is no problem based on what the scale reads, but then a stall or gain can does NOT mean it will work  for everyone; to prevent stalls/gains simply do not make changes to Dr. Simeons protocol just because someone else is losing with that modification.

13. In women, menstrual periods increase water retention, and water weight shows on the scale. If you know you are following the plan and are not cheating, you just need to accept that the stall/gain is temporary and continue to follow the protocol. The drop will happen once the menstrual cycle is normalized in the body.

Conclusion

If you are following Dr. Simeons to a “T” and have no other explanations for a stall/gain, look at your life and the levels of stress. Stress causes cortisol which hinders weight loss and/or causes you to gain weight. Try to remain calm and stress-free.
