The HCG Diet is a medically created diet utilizing a homeopathic remedy in combination with a low fat 500 calorie per day diet, for a period of 21 days followed by a three week period of no starch and no sugar stabilizing phase. After the hCG Diet, you can expect to have an improved metabolism and maintain weight more easily than after a traditional low calorie diet, and expect weight loss of 1/2 -2 lb (1/4 – 1 kilo) a day. A weight loss of 30lb (13.5 kilos) a month. Weight loss is visible via the scales and inches off the body so never get hung up on ‘scale’ weight which with women especially will fluctuate monthly with hormones and water. You cant NOT lose weight on this protocol, the HCG supports you and takes away your appetite.
