HCG Diet—What You Are and Are Not Allowed To Eat

The HCG Diet is an easy way to shed nearly a pound a day! How you ask? Let’s begin with giving you a little information on this simple weight loss program. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone during pregnancy that enables women to speed up their metabolism and process food quickly. By following the fat-free diet of 500 calories per day, while receiving your HCG injections, patients have experienced additional benefits such as:

  • Higher Energy Levels
  • Faster Metabolism
  • Decreased Hunger

Like any diet, it is important to monitor your eating habits and stick to the approved foods for this life changing program. That’s why we have provided you with a simple list of HCG Diet approved and non-approved foods, making losing weight easier than ever! You can officially throw those second guessing moments out the window and reference this handy list whenever hunger strikes.

Behind The Scenes of The HCG diet

If you are new to the wonders of the HCG Diet, here is a brief overview of just how the program became the hit it is today.

Since the 1950’s Dr. ATW Simeons began to experiment with various amounts of HCG and a variety of different foods. As a natural way to burn calories for women during pregnancy, Dr. Simeons started studying weight management issues and dieting using the HCG hormone. Men and women had the ability to lose unwanted fat faster than dieting and exercising once given the HCG hormone. Come 2008, the HCG Diet helped people lose weight successfully, only then to excel in Professional Health Care facilities by selling the HCG hormone by the bottle in 2010 and 2011.

Take a look at The History of the HCG Diet for more detailed information on the discovery and development of this great weight loss program.

Not only is DreamBody providing you with a list of approved foods, but also food you want to avoid. There are a lot of different factors when it comes to which foods are approved, and which are not, so we thought this was the easiest way to inform you.

For Maximum Results

Looks easy enough, doesn’t it? In addition to losing up to a pound a day, many patients also receive cold laser liposuction. While the HCG diet is used to get rid of unwanted fat, liposuction permanently eliminates the additional fat patients who lose an excess amount of weight are left with. Laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that permanently removes fat. The procedure has minimal downtime and is most popular for men and women in the abdomen and hips.

Cold laser liposuction is the perfect finishing touch to your journey of weight loss. Although it is commonly used after finishing the HCG Diet, there are other benefits of this in-office procedure. After a cold laser liposuction treatment, patients experience:

  • Drastic reduction in fat
  • Reduction in cellulite
  • No scarring
  • Minimal swelling or bruising
  • 1-2 days of downtime
