Everything you need to know about the hCG Diet

Losing those extra kilos is one of the simplest ways to restore your vitality and improve your overall well-being. In addition to leading a happier life, you can significantly reduce the risk of conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers for a healthier life. Weight loss has also been proven to lower your blood pressure, boost your good cholesterol levels while lowering your bad and even see decreased joint pain and improved mobility. But what weight loss routines and diets actually work?

The HcG diet is the primary diet used at Capalaba Natural Health for those looking to lose weight quickly, in a safe and healthy manner. Removing the need to exercise, the HcG diet suppresses your appetite, includes a low-calorie meal plan and results losing between 1 – 2kg of weight loss per week.  We have successfully put over 3000 people on this diet and therefore have complete confidence in it’s ability to help you reach your weight loss goals.

What is the HcG Diet?

The HcG (human chorionic gonadotropin hormone) diet is designed to trigger the body to liberate fat stores and reset the hypothalamus to assist in the prevention of regaining weight. You will be given homeopathic HcG drops, a meal plan and weight loss tips to help activate weight and fat loss. The meal plan will include 500 calories a day with your body releasing approximately 2,500 calories per day from your own fat stores so you don’t feel hungry. You will eat 6 meals a day and drink 2L of water to help flush toxins. The general weight loss is 1-2kg per week with fat loss ranging between 1-1.5kg a week.

How the HcG Diet Works

HcG, in its simplest form, is a hormone designed to boost metabolism while reducing your appetite. Most commonly found in pregnant women, HcG assists in regulating the body’s metabolic functions and therefore, when HcG has been raised it signals your body to activate a mechanism to burn fat. Paired with a low-calorie meal plan, HcG promotes weight loss, often with results showing within the first few days.

The HcG Diet is a three-phase diet. The first phase is ‘loading’ where you eat anything you want for 2 days to build up your fat stores. This is also when you start taking your HcG drops. This helps prepare your body for the low-calorie phase of the diet. Interestingly, people who do the loading often lose more weight.

Phase two consists of reducing your caloric intake to 500 calories per day. Essentially, your body then thinks it’s starving, and it flicks a switch and starts burning your own fat for energy. Fat is just stored energy so we use this mechanism to access this stored energy thereby reducing your weight.

During this phase you can burn over 2,500 calories from your own fat which is the equivalent of you doing 6 hours of cross training every day … without doing any. Thanks to these fat stores being released into the bloodstream, most people report having little to no appetite during the HcG diet while maintaining their energy levels. The typical weight loss is 1-1.5 kg per week for women, with men shedding up to 2 kg per week. This phase lasts for 7 weeks before we move you to phase three.

Low glycaemic phase three is scheduled for 2 weeks during which time we support your liver and replenish your body’s oils. This also gives your body a break from fat burning and it gives you more food choices. This phase also helps teach you how to keep the weight off. The purpose of this part of the diet is to give your body and mind a rest while teaching you how to maintain your weight. The phase 3 part of the diet is very close to your maintenance diet. This phase helps your body reset your set point (the weight it believes is healthy for you) so as to help you not put weight on in the future. If you need to lose further weight you would then restart the program again at phase 1, rotating through the 3 phases until you have reached your ideal weight.
