How Does An HCG Diet Affect Your Energy?

HCG Injections

Losing weight is hard. Low-calorie diets can cause extreme hunger, fatigue, irritability, and even the loss of muscle mass, and each of these factors can cause a dieter to quit a weight loss program. Even adding exercise can be problematic for many dieters. Fortunately, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) injections can help. HCG is a hormone found in both the male and female bodies. It plays an important role in regulating metabolism which may also affect your energy. 

How Does HCG Impact Energy Levels?

The HCG diet is an extremely low-fat and extremely low-calorie eating plan.

In most cases, it can be broken down into three stages:

  • Loading phase. Start taking hCG and eat many foods high in fat and calories for the next two days.
  • Weight loss phase. Keep taking the hCG and limit your daily caloric intake to 500 for the next three to six weeks.
  • Maintenance phase. Stop taking hCG. Your food intake should gradually increase, but sugar and starch should be avoided for the next three weeks.

People who want to lose a moderate amount of weight might stay in the middle phase for three weeks, but those who want to lose a significant amount of weight might be advised to stay on a diet for six weeks and perhaps even repeat the entire cycle of phases more than once. During the diet phase, where you are trying to lose weight, you are only allowed to consume two meals per day, typically lunch and dinner.

HCG will help increase your energy levels, which can often deplete when you eat a low-calorie diet. You’ll get the benefits of a fast metabolism and increased energy levels, all the while eating a low-calorie diet. It will give you the best of both worlds and you’ll see that weight that’s been holding you back for years suddenly start to fall off.

HCG is not a forever solution, but it is an effective solution. When you follow a medically supervised weight loss program, you’ll be able to safely utilize the benefits of this hormone to help you reach your goals and then learn how to maintain your weight loss through a healthy lifestyle.

What Are The Pros And Cons Of HCG Energy Level In Diet?

Trying to lose weight can be a frustrating endeavor. The result we want is always the last thing we see. This is especially the case when you focus heavily on cutting calories and cardio exercise. All of this is attributed to fat being a survival substance that our body tries to retain as a last resort. HCG works to move fat up the cue of energy sources, above muscle mass, so that guys can maintain their guns and still lose the gut.

HCG’s function within the body is to initiate the production of testosterone and to signal the body to use stored fat, rather than muscle mass, for energy. By injecting a series of appropriate doses of HCG into the body and generating uniquely personalized exercise and nutrition plans, patients can experience significant weight loss.

HCG for weight loss has unfortunately seen rare cases of misuse. Early practices of HCG weight loss programs believed the hormone to provide enough nutrients to supplement a severely reduced diet. Make sure to discuss the importance of overall wellness with you, including healthy meal plans, exercise programs, and mindful living.

What Are The Benefits Of HCG To Athletes?

One of the benefits of HCG injections, aside from weight loss, is that it keeps you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating the hormone levels in your body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates a muscle-building state which counteracts the muscle-breakdown state.

This sets the HCG diet apart from other weight loss systems because typically during a fast, dramatic weight loss with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost, which is the type of weight that you want to lose. Because muscle is heavier than fat, it may look like you have had a dramatic weight loss when in reality all you’ve lost is muscle. When you lose muscle, it sets you bad for your weight loss goals because it’s bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that you’re at risk of regaining the weight you’ve lost quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. It also will take quite a bit of time, effort, and work to build back the muscle that has been lost.
