hCG drops have proved to be immensely useful in weight-loss programs. This Buzzle article provides detailed information on the use of hCG drops.
In 1954, a British physician named Dr. A.T.W. Simeons provided a ray of hope for many obese individuals, when he published a book named, “Pounds & Inches – A New Approach To Obesity”. According to his findings, a hormone called human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), which is found in pregnant women, controls the hypothalamus gland which is responsible for controlling hunger, reproductive system, body fats, and emotions. These drops aid in weight loss, if supported by an hCG diet plan. The reason why I highlighted the latter part of the previous sentence is that the drops are ineffective if you continue with your 2000-calorie diet.
The accompanying diet is extremely essential if you seriously want to lose weight. Of course, weight-loss results vary according to an individual’s physical condition, lifestyle, and diet. Now, let us see the instructions for taking hCG drops.
How to Use hCG Drops for Weight Loss?
Usage of hCG drops is quite simple. The oral drops have made this process simpler after the previously used injection method. Getting oneself injected everyday can be intimidating to most people. This process of oral drops is far easier.
Consult the Physician
You will need to go on a crash diet of only 500 calories a day, if you going to take the drops. Prior to starting this, you should consult a qualified physician to check whether your body is ready to undergo this strict diet. The doctor will check your hormone levels and the overall immunity of your body to diseases. Then, if he advises positively, you can start taking them.
Buy the Suitable Bottle
There are many hCG drop brands available in the market along with different types of dosage programs. The best brands are MYhCG Plus, hCG Ultra Diet Drops, hCG Platinum, etc. The amount of weight loss expected, the amount of hCG present, and the expiry of the drops, are mentioned on the bottle label. The standard values are 26 days with 23 shots or 43 days with 40 shots. Make sure that you purchase the bottle suitable for your aimed weight level. It is highly advisable to follow your doctor’s recommendations in this regard.
Taking the Drops
It is important that you take the hCG drops according to the prescription on the bottle. Take in 4 to 5 drops under your tongue. Hold the drops in your mouth for about 30 seconds before swallowing, so that the hCG is absorbed in the bloodstream. There is no need of refrigeration for oral hCG, so you can take it along anywhere you want. Stick to the regime without interruptions, for the best result.
hCG Diet Plan
As I said above, the drops are effective only if you follow a strict diet plan. When you start with the drops, gorge on food for the first two days. Remember, do so only for the first two days―after that, the strict low calorie diet of 500 calories should be started for about 21 days in the first phase, and 21 days in the second phase. These phases vary according to every individual’s body structure and prescription. Overall, the weight-loss programs vary from 15 days to 90 days.
The Actual Diet
According to Dr. Simeons’ manuscript, you should avoid all the sugars and starches from your diet. So, you should take tea or coffee in the morning without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk is allowed in 24 hours. He mentions that saccharin or stevia may be used. Lunch and dinner should include
- Only 100 grams of boiled or grilled chicken breast, beef, veal, fresh fish, lobster, or crab with visible fat to be removed before cooking.
- Only one vegetable from spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage.
- One bread stick or one Melba toast.
- A fruit like an apple, orange, or a handful of strawberries, or half a grapefruit.
After you stop taking the hCG drops, discontinue this diet plan and gradually increase the calorie intake to about 2000 calories per day. You can start consuming sugar and starchy foods after 3 weeks from the stoppage of the dose.
If you follow this diet plan and couple it with some exercise (a walk for 30 minutes everyday is more than enough), you will certainly feel a renewed vigor, and the weight-loss will be effective in not just making you lean and healthy, but it will also boost your confidence. So, using this information, take a step towards a leaner and fitter body.
