HCG is a hormone produced in a woman when she is pregnant. It helps the healthy and proper growth of the fetus. Experts in medical field suggest that the more the amount of HCG in a mother’s blood, the more healthy will she and her baby. There are several occasions when this hormone is produced even in a man and in a non-pregnant woman.
HCG diet is a kind of diet used to help a person to lose his/her weight and to stay fit. The hormone is injected into a person’s body to help him reduce weight. But, it is not the hormone but the diet he/she has to follow which reduces his/her weight.
Most of the times, a normal person takes up more than 500 calories in one setting’s eating. But HCG diet, as suggested by Dr. Simeon, demands a person to consume only 500 calories a day. In simple words, HCG diet allows a person to consume only 200 grams of food a day not exceeding 100 grams in a single sitting. And those 100 grams should be made up of healthy food items prescribed by HCG diet.
They include white fish, shrimp, crab, 3 egg whites, lobster, extra lean beef and scallops. The vegetables prescribed for a person under HCG diet are celery, spinach, fennel, cauliflower, chard, onions, beet greens, cucumbers, cabbage and mixed greens. And it is healthy for a person to have these vegetables even if he is not following a HCG diet. Because the health varies from person to person, it is advised to consult a doctor to plan your HCG diet.
Apart from keeping you fit and helping you to lose your weight, HCG diet does more to you than you would ever imagine. As a great saint has told, ‘What you eat is what you are’. HCG diet may seem to restrict you from having the food items you love to eat and it may seem to be cruel in asking you to measure and eat every gram of food you take in. But conversely, it helps you to build yourself, know every inch of yourself by knowing each and every nutritious aspects of your food. The moment you start to understand the nature of food you eat, you will start to understand your body. By controlling yourself to have limited range of food, you can control your own body.
