- 1. Can I live on 500 calories/day without being excessively hungry or low in energy?
A: The most surprising and amazing fact about the 500 calories/day diet and daily HCG is that if done properly (as per recommendations) most people experience little hunger whereas the energy levels stay high enabling people to work efficiently and perform well in their daily commitments.
The secret is to take the supplements, and stay on the low calories diet. This is a signal for the HCG to start breaking the fat deposits. The presence of fat in the blood stream will signal to the hypothalamus that the body has enough nutrients and to shut down the hunger signal.
- Do I need to take the supplements?
A: There is no caveat to this: it is a MUST if you want the diet to work. The carnitine will help the body to break down the fat. The amino-acids will prevent the muscle wasting. The vitamins and nutrients will help prevent the body becoming weak and will support the liver to neutralize and eliminate the toxins stored and then released when the fat tissue is broken down.
Do not skip the supplements. It is perhaps the most common mistake that people make. It is true that it may appear inconvenient to take supplements 3 times a day (although we generally do not forget to eat 3 (and often more) times a day. Some people are repelled by the thought of taking the capsules. As an alternative the capsules may be emptied in a glass and taken with lemonated water.
- Will I be able to inject myself ?
A: The daily HCG injections are given with a very fine needle in the abdominal fat. They are painless and there is no bleeding. Hundreds of people that we have treated had no problems injecting themselves although initially they were skeptical about actually doing it.
4.Will HCG upset my hormones?
A: Occasionally during the HCG diet the cycle may become irregular and menstrual bleeding may occur earlier. This is a transient effect of no long term consequence.
- When I lose weight will my face become sunken ?
A: Because the HCG only targets the abnormal visceral fat deposits, there will not be facial sagging as a result of the diet.
