Myth #4: You don’t consume adequate energy calories for your body’s needs on the HCG Diet.


Your body also searches for calories to give it energy. With HCG on board, since it wants to “feed the baby” and not conserve the fat, it pulls the calories into your blood to fulfill your body’s needs. Consequently, you actually provide your own calorie needs from your fat, which is what you want to do to lose weight.

Thus, what the diet doesn’t spare is the fat. The 500 calories a day, plus the HCG causes the body to release the stored calories in your fat stores. These released calories are then readily available to your body to give you the energy you need for your daily body energy needs. You are not deficient. These calories are just as good as calories from ingested fats, carbohydrates and starches that you would normally eat. The difference is that you lose weight if you burn your own calories.

Myth #1: A 500 calories a day is detrimental to your health.
Myth #2: Not enough protein is ingested on a low calorie diet.
Myth #3: The HCG low calorie diet is a muscle wasting diet.
Myth #4: You don’t consume adequate energy calories for your body’s needs on the HCG Diet.
Myth #5: This diet is contrary to medical advice.
Myth #6: You don’t eat enough fiber on the diet.
Myth #7: Doing 500 calories a day for the rest of your life is impossible.
Myth #8: Not eating a good breakfast is just not healthy.
Myth #9: The HCG Diet is just another “fad” diet that won’t work long term.
Myth #10: The medical establishment is against using this diet.
