Part of the HCG diet plan involves restricting your calorie intake to 500 calories per day. You maybe thinking that the low calorie number is crazy and impossible, but think of all the weight that would fall off with such a strict, 500 calorie diet. However, it is completely possible with the HCG program.
500 Calories A Day Is Easier Than You May Think!
It’s important to remember that a 500 calorie diet is completely possible, but you have to prepare your body for it. You can’t just decide one day to tackle this low diet by yourself. If you did, you would end up feeling starved all the time which would increase the likelihood of bingeing at the end of a long day. Instead, it’s important that you take the right steps to handle how your body will react to the decrease in calories which is where the homeopathic HCG weight loss formula comes into play.
Foods that help you fight off hunger:
- Apples – low in calories and high in fiber to help fight off unhealthy cholesterol.
- Avocados - filled with healthy fat which can slow digestion, it also helps keep blood sugar levels from spiking after you eat.
- Barley – can replace white rice, brown rice, and oats which will help keep your blood sugar levels low and your hunger cravings down.
- Beans – they are protein-rich and act as a great substitute for meat. You can wash canned beans with water to decrease sodium levels.
- Berries – they are full of anti-oxidants and fiber.
- Broccoli – it is very filling and loaded with fiber, it can also supply all of your daily vitamin C in 1 serving.
- Light Meats & Fish – another food packed with protein.
How HCG Works
The HCG weight loss formula has been designed in such a way to help your body break down excess fat to be used for energy. Without it, your body would begin to eat away at the muscles first for energy, which would leave you feeling lethargic, weak and hungry all the time. With HCG, your body uses fat instead while supporting the rest of your metabolic functions at the same time. The ingredients in the formula are all natural and are there to support your energy levels and weight loss progress.
How the HCG formula works is by first interacting with the hypothalamus to stimulate the portion of the brain responsible for eating and drinking so that you don’t experience any hunger (which normally you would experience an immense amount of). Next, the HCG helps stimulate the body to start breaking down excess fat cells and then absorbing the empty cells so that they are not just there waiting to fill up again. Basically, the HCG formula is retraining your body in how it deals with fat cells. This way, even once you are done with the diet program, your body will still remember how to handle fat cells in the future.
When you pair the restricted diet with the HCG formula, you won’t experience any hunger. Most importantly, your body won’t be shocked and go into starvation mode, because it will have the right tools to keep the body functioning on a high level. This results in huge weight loss without the crankiness, fatigue and hunger that comes with other diet plans.
