Over the last two years, I have seen nearly 15 close friends of ours take the weight off and keep it off. I heard them talk about the small amounts of food and HCG diet. It sounded like some secret club or something that they all belonged to.
At first, I thought it sounded ludicrous. It seems unhealthy was what I said to my husband. So I began to research and read about it. I found that the HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin diet was established in the 1950’s. It is a hormone that a woman has during the early stages of pregnancy because the placenta doesn’t have enough nourishment to support the fetus so the hormone enables a woman’s body to access the fat storages a woman has in her body. It opens up the fat cells so to speak and makes them very accessible.
The way the diet works is once the fat cells are open and totally accessable to burn as calories, a person eats a limited caloric amount each day and the rest of the calories they need comes from their own body fat.
I started this diet on Thanksgiving of 2009 and by Christmas I was down 12#. My husband was on it too and he is down 18#. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female, it works. It doesn’t hurt you. We had a Doctor oversee the entire process. I was not hungry and it actually had somewhat of a spiritual flare for me personally. The reason is, I have a relationship with food and it is not always healthy. I am not extremely obese. I am obese though. I weigh 149# and I am 5″5″ tall. I should weigh about 130#. When I started the diet I was pushing 161 on the scales. I was moving into a size 12. Yikes!
I feel better now. I have a different relationship with food. I wear a smaller size. I look good. People are noticing the weight loss. The best part? I feel sculpted. I know it sounds weird, I lose weight differently on this diet. It accessed fat pockets that I had had since Jesus was a baby. Serious. I had a glob of fat under my chin that was not going to budge no matter what I weighed. I think it would have been the last to go if I had been on Donner Pass. It just wasn’t going to go away. To my surprise, this chin thing I had going on is done. No more. It was sculpted away. I had some dimples on other parts of my behind that are gone too. Interesting how it worked. I was skeptical, yet committed and I followed it nearly to the tee and it worked. I feel better than I have in years and I am looking forward to taking a break for six weeks and running another round.
If you having tried it. I highly suggest the hcg diet. I had a large behind and now I have an hcgbutt. I like it. It works.
