Myth #7: Doing 500 calories a day for the rest of your life is impossible.

Unfortunately, many people, especially many critics of HCG Diets, think that people who do HCG Diets must continue eating only 500 calories a day for the rest of their lives. This idea is totally and absolutely false. The 500 calories a day diet is only for the first 40 days of a course of the diet. After all the excess weight is lost, a healthy diet is eaten with associated lifestyle changes.

The lifestyle changes learned during the program are what help people keep the weight off long term, not the 500 calorie diet. The latter is just a means to reach the former, and is an essential part of the program. Many people who have done our program have stated that it is probably the most life changing remarkable weight-loss program that they have ever done. It’s not a fad. It’s a diet program that can be successful for the rest of your life.

Myth #1: A 500 calories a day is detrimental to your health.

Myth #7: Doing 500 calories a day for the rest of your life is impossible.

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.
