HCG Helps Establish Healthy Eating Habits
Besides melting off the fat quickly, one of the biggest benefits reported by HCG dieters is that they learn how to live a more conscious lifestyle. How does the HCG Diet do this?
The use of HCG and the accompanying HCG diet teaches people three things:
* When to eat
* What to eat
* How much to eat
Have You Lost Touch with Your Body?
Many overweight people have lost touch with the messages their body sends to them about when to eat, what to eat, and how much. Before beginning the HCG diet, they might eat snacks, or even full meals, whenever the thought enters their head, without thinking and without paying attention to what their body really needs.
In addition, overweight people are sometimes emotional eaters. Although emotional eating can be considered a psychological disorder, it has different levels of normalcy and severity. For example, almost everybody uses food to celebrate happy occasions, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Dr. Simeons, creator of the HCG diet, believed that very few overweight people have a real psychological problem with food. But they do tend to take emotional eating to a slightly higher level than others. They may feel the urge to eat when they feel negative emotions like boredom, anxiety, frustration, or anger, regardless of whether they are truly hungry.
An emotional eater who takes on the HCG diet can learn to overcome their bad habits by following the HCG diet protocol, including limiting themselves to significantly fewer calories per day. This means that during the diet, the dieter eats two meals per day consisting of 3.5 ounces of lean meat, 4 oz of vegetables, one serving of fruit, and a single dry bread stick or piece of Melba toast. Meanwhile, the HCG breaks down their stored fat to provide any additional nutrition their body needs and reduce or eliminate hunger pains.
Dieters who have successfully lost weight by completing an entire round of the HCG diet often find that they have learned when to eat, what to eat, and how much.When To Eat
Emotional eaters have the toughest time on the HCG diet. HCG helps control hunger, but boredom or sheer habit can still be hard to overcome. When cravings or emotional triggers strike on the HCG diet, you are forced to stop and think about whether you can eat right then. After a few weeks of dieting, people often begin to see more clearly what their emotional triggers are.What To Eat
The food choices in the HCG diet were specially designed by Dr. Simeons so their chemical makeup wouldn’t interfere with each other or the HCG and so maximize weight loss. In addition, each food item is a healthy and appropriate choice for a well-balanced diet beyond the HCG program. After finishing the program, many HCG dieters discover that they are now used to making more healthy and balanced choices. They also become used to paying close attention to nutrition information and ingredients.
How Much To Eat
Besides losing weight fast, portion control is perhaps the most common benefit people mention after finishing a HCG Diet. Rather than eating a restaurant-sized portion or not paying attention to the portion size at all, HCG dieters become used to eating portions that are actually smaller than normal. When dieters transition into their post-HCG life, they often find it much easier to eat regular, healthy portions of food.
Because of these three benefits of losing weight with the HCG diet, people can form healthy habits that last well beyond the diet program.
Learning when to eat, what to eat, and how much to eat can affect the rest of your life for the better.
