Most HCG protocols have a high success rate and help people lose around ½ to 2 lbs of fat a day. It may seem unbelievable, but people can lose from 3-5 lbs on the first day! A 28-45 day HCG protocol is more than sufficient to help one get back into shape and develop a new happy healthy point of view. When one gets on the scale in the morning and could find that they have lost weight every single day that the HCG protocol is followed, it can be a highly motivating and exciting experience.
Medically directed and monitored, well researched and specialized protocols are an essential part of the HCG diet plan. These are planned in such a manner that even if one cuts down the daily calorie intake, one will not feel hungry or deprived in any way; quite unlike the usual diets we know of. This takes place because the HCG protocol instructs the body to utilize fat reserves through the hypothalamus. Hence, the body is flooded with 2,000-3,000 calories from these reserves along with the calorie intake that is part of the program, which is more than sufficient to take care of one’s daily nourishment. Further, not only is one’s hunger normally controlled, but their energy levels usually stay high and they usually do not feel lethargic, tired or grumpy during the day.
The simplicity of using HCG for weight loss lies in the ease with which one should lose the amount of weight one wants and then leave the diet as and when it pleases them. When one wants to get off the protocol, there is a short stabilization period, which helps one to get back to their normal diet and maintain their new weight. Protocols generally include switching to organic foods and daily HCG drops under the direction of a health care provider. Other recommended activities include walking 20 minutes or more a day and doing breathing exercises.
