How can HCG help you during Phase 2 of the HCG diet?

  • Resets metabolism- The main target of the HCG in your body is your metabolic rate. It resets your metabolism to mobilize your fat stores. The higher the rate of your metabolism gives the greater chance of losing weight. It burns fats fast and safe while maintaining a low-calorie intake.
  • Suppress appetite- As the metabolic rate increases the HCG will suppress your appetite. It reprograms the reward center of your brain to avoid triggering hunger and cravings. This only means that you will be able to eat fewer calories without getting hungry. The HCG will also curb hunger and cravings during the VLCD. That is why you stay full all day even you are eating less.
  • Provides energy- Consuming 500 calories per day can lower your energy levels. However, through the HCG you will still feel fully active. The HCG draws fuel from the burned fats and converts them into energy. You do not need to eat more to get high energy. As long as the HCG is in your system it will supply the energy that you need per day.

How to get the right dose of HCG during the VLCD?
