Making the decision to determine whether the hCG diet is for you or not, one of the questions you will ponder is “What are the side effects?” The main side effect that all our patients experience is WEIGHT LOSS! The hCG diet targets visceral fat, which may help to lower cardiovascular disease and diabetes risks.  Other health benefits of the hCG may include decreased headaches and increased energy and metabolism.

On the first day of the very low calorie diet (VLCD), the body begins to cleanse itself. During the first few days on the hCG diet, it can be common to experience light headaches.  Since the VLCD restricts carbohydrate and sugar intake, the body may go through a withdrawal period; but rest assured, this will only last a few days.

Constipation is another symptom that become apparent during the VLCD phase of the hCG diet. Cutting out extra fat and a reduction in food consumption may play a role in this. Not to worry… the medical staff at Skinny Me will be available to offer tips on how to lessen symptoms of constipation.
