The hCG Diet hormone and nutrition counseling program from Allura features hCG, a naturally occurring human hormone that positively affects weight loss by breaking down and releasing fat stored in your body. There are a lot of people out there currently that are using scare tactics to turn people away from this revolutionary diet. These myths and misconceptions are causing thousands if not millions of people to miss out on a number of benefits from the hCG diet. Don’t be fooled by what you hear! Today we’re covering a couple negative claims made about the hCG diet.

  1. You won’t get enough protein in such a low calorie diet. This criticism is unjustified. The body indeed has certain “needs”, including calories for energy and protein as building blocks to continually sustain life. Some people who do not know the diet well unjustly criticize it and think that the 500 calories are insufficient to provide adequate daily protein needs. The hCG True Diet requires you to ingest around 200 gm of a protein food a day, which is an adequate amount of protein to fulfill your daily needs.
  2. The hCG low calorie diet is a muscle wasting diet. Actually, most people do not experience muscle wasting while on this diet if done properly. Adequate protein is required when doing the hCG True diet, preserving the muscle mass. There is no need to pull proteins from your muscles for your body’s needs since you must ingest adequate amounts of protein while on the 500 calorie a day diet. Many people even gain muscle as they exercise during the diet program.
