If you are planning to use the HCG diet to lose weight, you have to learn more about the recommended HCG diet menu. Introduced by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a British endocrinologist, this weight loss program guarantees to help you overcome uncontrollable weight gain. By utilizing the HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormone, it will tell your body to release stored fat and use it for nourishing your cells. Combined with a low-calorie diet, this process will lead to weight loss and a reshaped body. HCG will lead to the release of abnormal fat without affecting your normal fat (muscle tissue) or structural fat (bones) so it helps you lose some inches in stubborn areas such as hips, upper arms, and thighs. One can also take this homeopathic remedy with other medications without endlessly worrying about harmful drug reactions.


The HCG diet plan to be followed is recommended by Dr. Simeons. In his manuscript entitled Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity, he outlines a special 500-calorie diet that has already been tested on thousands of individuals. HCG for weight loss only gets results when it is taken together with this diet protocol because it will make sure that your mobilized fat is being used for energy. However, following the diet and not taking HCG will be useless because there will be no fat in your bloodstream available for burning.


Unlike other fad diets, the HCG diet plan recommends a well-balanced diet menu. A healthy variety of fruits, vegetables, and sources of high-quality protein will boost the effects of HCG. Dr. Simeons also outlined the specific combinations and portions that one can use while planning their meals. A suggested daily menu is as follows:


 
    BREAKFAST
  • Herbal teas or coffee in any quantity without sugar.
  • Only one tablespoon of milk is allowed in a 24 hour period.
  • Stevia may be used as a sweetener.

    LUNCH
  • 3½ ounces of one type of lean beef, chicken, turkey, veal, white-fleshed fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp. All visible fat must be carefully removed before cooking and the meat must be weighed raw. It should be grilled, steamed or boiled without additional fat.
  • One type of vegetable only, chosen from asparagus, spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad (lettuce), cabbage, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, fennel, onions, or red radishes.
  • One melba toast.
  • An apple, orange, one half grapefruit, or a handful of strawberries.

    DINNER
  • One choice from each of the 4 lunch items, but not the same as variety will help with weight loss success.
    DRINKS AND SEASONINGS
  • Teas (black, green, or herbal), regular or decaffeinated coffee, plain or mineral water (minimum of 64 ounces a day) are the only drinks allowed, but they may be consumed in any quantity and at all times.
  • The juice from only one fresh lemon is allowed daily for any purpose.
  • Salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic, sweet basil, parsley, thyme, cayenne pepper and other spices that do not contain sugar are allowed, but oil, butter or dressings are not allowed.

    SNACKS BETWEEN MEALS
  • Fruit or the melba toast may be eaten between meals instead of with lunch or dinner, but no more than four items listed for lunch or dinner may be eaten at one meal. Do not eat pre-packaged or oily snacks, sweet treats, or other food items not stated on this diet.
 
    NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS AND MEDICINES
  • Nutritional supplements will be taken as follows:
    • THE FAT BURNER INJECTION – B vitamins and lipotropic agents – once a week.
    • CATALYN – a multi-vitamin – 3 tablets, 3 times a day.
    • LIVER PROTECT – liver support – 2 tablets, twice a day.
    • PROBIO-MAX – a probiotic for colon cleanse – 1 capsule a day.
  • Prescription medicines must be discussed with the doctor.
 

If you are wondering why you can’t do the 500-calorie diet without using HCG, you have to understand how the body uses fat. While normal fat is easy to use, abnormal fat is locked away so it is very difficult to lose, and can only be done through calorie restriction and exercise. Following the 500-calorie diet without using HCG will only make your body lose normal fat (muscle tissue) and structural fat (bones). This will negatively affect your well-being and make you feel excessively hungry. Although the HCG diet requires a lot of determination and willpower, the results it promises are worth the effort.
