Could I lose the same amount of weight without using hCG by just following a very low-calorie diet?
By simply cutting back a person’s calories and fat consumption, one can lose weight. The risk and negative effect that happens is that the body will tend to lose mostly muscle before fat which is dangerous. When the body is deprived it stores fat. This causes the cellular metabolism to slow down. When a person’s metabolism slows down it makes it easier to gain weight and also decreases muscle mass. By following the hCG diet, the excess fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated. The low calorie program is essential because it prevents an instant refilling of the emptied fat cells. This is what helps maintain your muscle mass by getting rid of the fat deposits. It will reset your metabolism and leave your muscle alone.
