Is the HCG Diet safeNo – the HCG Diet is not safe and it does not work for permanent weight loss. The HCG diet is another harmful weight loss fad that relies on unhealthy calorie restriction. Slender For Life™ weight loss clients learn self hypnosis so that they can safely lose weight and keep it off. With hypnosis for weight loss you can end your desires for foods that make you fat and sick and create healthy desires for whole grains (starches), vegetables and fruit. Weight loss hypnosis can help you become more active so that you can do the things in life that you want to do.

HCG Diet Dangers:
Is Fast Weight Loss Worth the Risk?

HCG is not approved for over-the-counter use, nor has it been proved to work for weight loss. There is no good evidence that HCG even works. Pieter Cohen, an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School says that HCG is “reckless, irresponsible, and completely irrational. Can you lose weight on it? Of course, but that’s mainly because you’re hardly consuming any calories. And any benefit is not going to last.”

500 calories a day is tantamount to malnutrition. Though HCG dieters have some leeway in how they spend their 500 daily calories, they’re urged to choose organic meats, vegetables, and fish. Dairy, carbs, alcohol, and sugar are all off limits. According to Dr Oz, some of the side effects of the HCG Diet include a loss of your menstrual period, hair loss and mood swings.

How crazy is it that starches, the food that our body needs for health and your brain needs to function are off limits?! At 500 hundred calories a day, your body goes into shock and starvation mode, so as soon as you go back to eating normally, you gain back even more weight. Living on 500 calories a day is not only unhealthy—it’s hazardous, according to FDA experts.

Over the years I have heard many horror stories from people who became ill from HCG. Consumers on such restrictive diets are at increased risk for side effects that include an imbalance of the electrolytes that keep the body’s muscles and nerves functioning properly, and an irregular heartbeat. Other serious side effects including Cardiac Arrest and Gall Bladder Disease, headaches, constipation and nausea.

In addition to these unhealthy side effects, the HCG diet recommends animal proteins that cause inflammation which can lead to increased pain, fat and disease.

Studies have shown that people who consumed the same low-calorie diet (500 calories a day), but who were given a placebo instead of HCG did, just as well in terms of weight loss. A British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology meta-analysis concluded “there is no scientific evidence that HCG is effective in the treatment of obesity; it does not bring about weight-loss of fat-redistribution, nor does it reduce hunger or induce a feeling of well-being.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, the HCG does not work and it is not safe.

Studies show that hypnosis for weight loss is over 30 times as effective for weight loss than other weight loss methods and that two years later hypnosis subjects continued to lose significant weight. Hypnosis subjects lost more weight than 90% of others and kept it off.
