We all have our own ways of losing weight. Most of us sweat it off the treadmill, while others go to beauty clinics for a faster result. Both ways are time consuming but the first one is cheaper. If there was a way for us to combine the pros of both scenarios, let’s say the cost-effectiveness of the cardio and the fast results of the surgery, would we consider it?
Luckily for us, Dr. ATW Simeons has introduced HCG as an efficient precursor to weight loss when paired with a proper diet. Do not fret about the ‘diet’ part though. This dietary plan doesn’t include starvation. Dr. Simeons discovered that HCG prompts the body to burn stored fats. It basically means that even if we do not eat as much, we will not be able to feel any hunger because our body always has something to burn as fuel for our activities. Hunger is triggered when our body senses that we are running out of fuel. We finally do not have to spend hours on the treadmill just burning off the cake we ate this morning.
HCG is not a drug that has to be closely monitored like other dietary pills. HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that already exists inside our bodies. The quantity is greater in pregnant women because the cells found inside the placenta produce this wonderful hormone. Since we all cannot afford to be pregnant, we have HCG liquid drops to take care of that. Before, HCG has to be injected into the system. Currently, we have found a way for the body to absorb HCG without having to go to a doctor and wait for that needle to push into our muscle.
HCG has a delicate chemical structure. When it is mixed with acid, the structure breaks down. Thus, HCG cannot be taken orally. However, there is already a solution to that problem. First, we should not have eaten anything for fifteen minutes. After that, just squeeze a drop under our tongue and let it sit there for fifteen minutes. This is the most essential part; the act of absorption occurs under the tongue. After fifteen minutes, swallow the remaining HCG (if there is any left) and wait for another fifteen minutes before eating.
If we were told that taking HCG drops three times a day for 2 weeks leads to a weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds daily, would we believe it? It sounds too good to be true but it is possible. A diet plan that comes with HCG drops is not even much of a diet. For the first two days of taking HCG drops, we have to eat as much as we can. This is an essential step in the dietary plan. The next phase is called the “500-calorie with drops” phase. Just as the name suggests, we have to limit our food intake to 500 calories while still taking the drops.
We will not be feeling any cravings because HCG is already working its magic. Since we loaded ourselves with so many calories during the first two days, the HCG has commanded our body to burn as much fat as it can. By the end of the second phase, we would have lost a minimum of 7 pounds. We still have to maintain the 500-calorie diet for the next step but without the drops (weight loss should continue regardless).
In case our weight has reached a plateau, we restart the body’s metabolism with an apple. On the second day of the plateau phase, start taking the drops with the 500-calorie diet. However, for lunch, dinner, midnight snacks, tomorrow’s breakfast, and tomorrow’s morning snacks, just eat an apple. This will reset the system and allow for a noticeable drop in pounds.
Three weeks on this phase will merely seem like a week. It is tempting to extend the week but it is better to move on to the next step – maintenance. At this point, we increase our intake from 500 calories to 1,500 calories. This will maintain our current weight. We can expect minimal weight loss but weight gain is to be expected. However, weight gain of more than five pounds calls for a special phase – the bonus phase.
Why is it called the bonus? The bonus phase lasts only for a day and we get a real treat at the end – a whole steak and an apple. Do not worry though. This phase is meant to reset your weight back to day one of your maintenance phase. During the day and afternoon of the bonus phase, we will not be able to take anything except water. Think of it as something like preparing yourself for a feast by keeping your stomach empty.
Our HCG drops already come with a diet plan. Actually, there are a lot of plans to choose from – some are specifically made for those aiming to continuously lose weight for years, while others are developed for weight watchers with short-term goals. Whichever you choose from our offerings though, always remember that you’re not merely following a diet. You’re actually changing your lifestyle for the better.
