What is the Long Term Effectiveness of the HCG Diet?
The hCG diet is one of the few diets that can work both in the short term and the long term, but to have lasting results with your weight loss it will take a commitment to stay healthy.
One of the biggest failures of long term success with any diet is whether or not it changes your eating habits, as your eating habits are what determine the amount of calories you consume and the types of foods that you crave.
The hCG diet can actually change your eating habits and help reduce your cravings for junk food. Most patients on the diet find that they no longer crave the same foods that they used to crave after just one round of hCG. One of the most important things to do in order to change bad eating habits, is to reduce your portion sizes, eat lower fat foods, and drink more water.
These are all requirements of the hCG diet, and although the diet is one of the most structured out there, it is highly effective at helping clients change their behavior and habits that contribute to weight gain. Our hCG diet is designed to help your body reset itself and reduce your cravings for food.
Eating Larger Portions of Water and Fibre Rich Foods can Help you Change your Eating Habits
Our nutritionists advise that the best ways to change your eating habits is to limit your consumption of calorie dense foods like pizza, pasta, and bread and increase your quantities of fiber rich foods like broccoli, kale, fruits and non-starchy vegetables. By increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables you can control your cravings for food much more easily because the water content and fiber content of these foods will fill you up faster.
The hCG diet requires you to eat foods that are rich in both fiber and water content for a period of three to six weeks. During this period of time, many report changes in their food cravings. Although the first week of the diet can be challenging for some, once this week has passed the rest of the diet is usually much easier, and many find that they are able to stick to the protocol. As a result, our craving for calorie dense foods will decrease less and less.
The hCG Diet Limits your Consumption of Sugar Drinks
Another important aspect of the diet is that it limits the type of drinks that you can consume. This is important for helping you normalize your weight and transition into a healthier lifestyle. In order to avoid weight gain, you have to avoid consuming drinks with sugar and high fructose corn syrup, as they are a source of “empty calories” that can easily increase your weight and cause a wide range of metabolic issues. People who consume sugar drinks are much more likely to be obese and struggle with weight loss. The hCG diet requires clients to completely avoid consuming sugar drinks during its entire duration, which will help you avoid them once the diet has been completed.
The hCG Diet is one of the Easiest Ways to Transition into a Healthier Lifestyle
There are hundreds of diets now available and it can be confusing to make a decision on just one. However, the long term effectiveness of the hCG diet is proven and well known, and most participants have had success with it. You will find that following the protocol of the diet is very easy once you get familiar with it. Because it is limited to a short period of time (3 to 6 weeks) it has a dramatic and positive effect on your eating habits.
