In our recent blogs, we’ve been covering some common myths and misconceptions about the hCG diet, which is a very low-calorie diet (500 calories) high in protein and low in carbohydrates and fat. 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. In our last series on the topic, we’ll tackle some more common but untrue misconceptions about this revolutionary diet.
- Not eating a good breakfast is just not healthy. No breakfast whatsoever, except for coffee, or tea is consumed during the hCG True Diet. We all know of those who emphatically state that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” The reality is that this old wives’ tale is simply just a myth. It’s the total amount of calories ingested in a 24 hour period of time that is more important.
- The hCG Diet is just another “fad” diet that won’t work long term. On the contrary, eating healthier is a paramount goal of the HCG True Diet program. You are required to eat healthy to do the program. This includes learning about portion size, about calories in foods, about exercising, and about choosing more nutritious foods than you normally would eat.
- The medical establishment is against using this diet. The reality is that there are proponents of the diet program and critics. We have seen the results and have seen how so many people eat 500 calories a day yet “feel fine” while doing it. We have seen the 20, 30, 40 pound weight loss, or more, and the happiness and excitement of people who have lost the weight. We know that we are improving their health and appearance while monitoring the safety of the program when the overweight person does the hCG True Diet program.
