Benefits of the HCG Diet

Toni Harrison M.D.’s HCG Diet can help people to quickly lose weight, relearn eating habits, and improve their levels of overall health and wellness. Many people have been able to lose around 30 pounds on one course of the HCG Diet. While on the HCG Diet, men and women must follow a very low-calorie diet while avoiding sugary and processed foods.

The HCG Diet has been helping men and women to reach their weight loss goals since the 1950’s. Despite a person’s failures with other diets, the HCG Diet can help people to overcome their weight loss challenges. Losing weight with the HCG Diet has a number of wonderful health benefits, which can include:

Lower Risk of Heart Disease

Heart disease is one of the biggest killers in America, and it is one of the most preventable diseases. Obesity causes an abnormal amount of fat to be in the blood, which can increase blood pressure. Higher blood pressure puts stress on the arteries leading to the heart, which causes small cracks to occur in the walls of the arteries. Inside these cracks, plaque forms and can clog the arteries, leading to a heart attack. Weight loss can reduce blood pressure and prevent plaque buildup, which can prevent heart attacks.

Improved Insulin Effectiveness

Often times, diets that lead to obesity are filled with fat and sugar, which can cause insulin resistance. The pancreas secretes insulin in order to balance blood sugar, and when sugar is constantly present, high amounts of insulin must be secreted. High levels of insulin in the body on a consistent basis can cause the body to stop recognizing that it is there, which renders it ineffective. This condition is known as insulin resistance, which usually leads to Type II Diabetes.

Increased Metabolic Functions

The HCG Diet can reset the body’s metabolism to increase its overall functioning. Obesity raises the risk for metabolic syndrome, which occurs when a person has four of the five main metabolic issues, which include high cholesterol, excess abdominal fat, elevated blood pressure, high triglycerides, and insulin resistance. Weight loss can reduce the symptoms and the risk of developing this syndrome and increase overall health and wellness.

Healthier Liver Function

Obesity can also affect the liver, which is responsible for countless functions in the human body, including digestion, detoxification, and releasing essential enzymes. Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease develops when excess body fat builds up in the liver to cause inflammation. This inflammation can lead to the liver developing cysts, which can lead to cirrhosis and eventually liver failure.

More Energy

Weight loss with the HCG Diet can help men and women to raise their metabolism, and extract more energy from cells. Eating balanced meals on the HCG Diet can also work to regulate blood sugar in order to prevent dips and peaks in blood sugar. Regular blood sugar can stabilize energy levels and benefit moods. Weight loss can allow people to feel lighter and healthier in their bodies, which can lead to increased energy.

Leaner Appearance

The HCG Diet creates significant weight loss, and it burns only body fat. Many other diets cause people to go into ketosis, which causes the body to go into starvation mode and metabolize lean muscle tissue because it is filled with proteins. With the HCG Diet, many calories of fat are being released for energy, and for this reason, the body retains muscle tissue while burning fat. Because of the dramatic weight loss that occurs with the HCG Diet, many people are able to achieve a healthier and leaner appearance.

Improved Self-Confidence

Modern society places a great emphasis on appearance, and weight loss can help men and women to feel and look healthier, which can boost self-confidence. The sense of accomplishment that occurs with weight loss can also increase self-esteem and personal outlooks.
