The HCG Diet
A common misconception about the HCG Diet is the financial cost associated with pursuing the HCG Protocol. The belief that the cost of some sort of “special food” list, on top of paying for the HCG kit itself, outweighs the cost of not doing the diet at all is a complete myth.
The original Dr. Simeons HCG diet combines a very low calorie diet alongside HCG injections to induce rapid weight loss in as little as 30 days. Lipotropic Injections are usually a special blend of vitamins or other nutrients in concentrated forms that are used to metabolize stored fat so that the body can then use it as a primary energy source.
The HGC diet requires that you eat only 500 calories per day, as part of an effort to help reset your metabolism and begin change any unhealthy eating patterns. This diet also requires you to take a daily dose of the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (HCG).
