Weight loss can feel like an uphill battle. You may have tried everything from diet plans to exercise regiments — all with little to no success. If you’ve found yourself in this position, you may want to consider the Forever Slim HCG diet. This diet isn’t about temporary weight-loss: it alters your body’s metabolism, leaving you healthier and thinner for life.
The Forever Slim HCG diet program combines HCG injections with a low-calorie diet to both spur temporary weight loss and alters the body’s metabolism. HCG, or Human Chronic Gonadotropin, is a hormone released during pregnancy. During pregnancy, it causes women to burn stored fat to prevent harming or taking energy away from the fetus. When injected as part of the HCG diet, it works in the same way, allowing your body to burn a significant amount of stored fat — 1500-4000 calories worth — every single day.
These hormone injections, combined with an 800 calorie diet, ensure that you’re both losing a significant amount of weight and reconfiguring the number of calories your body will need to survive after your diet plan has run its course. This metabolic change helps the fat lost during the HCG diet stay off and make future weight loss easier.
Depending upon your weight loss goals and current state of health, you will either be put on a three-week program or a six-week program. Women typically lose between 5-15 lbs and 1-inch on the three-week program, and 15-25 lbs and two inches on the six-week program. On average, men lose between 15-25 lbs and two inches on the three-week program, and 25-50 lbs on the six-week program.
While this diet usually brings our patients positive results, it’s important to keep in mind that the use of HCG for weight loss is not FDA-approved. There are also some potential side effects that come with this plan, including:
- Restlessness or irritability
- Mild swelling, bruising, or irritation
- Breast tenderness
- Hair loss
- Pain at the injection site
Individuals with thyroid or adrenal gland disorders, cancers, undiagnosed uterine bleeding, heart disease, kidney disease, epilepsy, migraines, or asthma should not undergo an HCG diet. On the bright side, if you do not have any of these conditions, you can probably take part in this weight loss regimen.
