Being overweight has many different side effects towards a person’s health, but also their emotional and mental wellbeing. Many women and men who are overweight or obese suffer from a lack of confidence. This can affect all aspects of life, from social to work related situations. The habits that are formed while becoming overweight are hard to break, and can often remain the main obstacle between a person’s weight and their goal of weight loss.
The HCG hormone has been shown to help those suffering from obesity regain a healthier lifestyle. The real benefit of the HCG hormone is that the fat lost around the body is easily maintainable and a long-term weight loss solution. By aiding in losing weight, the HCG hormone also helps to jumpstart a patient’s metabolism and can improve current health conditions and symptoms.
The problem areas around the body that so many patients have are the exact fat stores that the HCG hormone targets. These areas are the first to gain weight, but often seem the hardest to lose weight from. These areas include hips, stomach, and arms, but are specific to each patient’s own body and how it gains or loses weight. With Dr. Blank’s HCG Diet plan, losing weight in these problem areas is easy.
Some more benefits of the HCG Diet plan are:
- Stroke deterrence – The HCG Diet plan lowers risks of stroke by lowering the fat content within the bloodstream. This allows the heart to pump blood throughout the body with less resistance.
- Liver function – Fat stores around the abdomen can cause fat to build up in the liver, which can lead to liver complications. Losing weight helps relieve the liver of excess fat, regaining its original healthy state of function.
- Reduced cholesterol – Bad cholesterol can build up in the blood stream due to high fat diets. Weight loss has been shown to decrease the risks of high cholesterol symptoms, such as strokes or heart disease.
- See results quickly – This diet almost instantly triggers weight loss in the body.
- Healthy eating – The foods allowed on this diet are healthy, avoid chemicals and preservatives, and are non-packaged foods. Eating whole, organic foods will only benefit the patient more!
- It is easy – Following the diet plan is simple when followed through.
- No intense exercises – Although exercise is important for overall health, this diet does not require more than a lightly active fitness level.
- Safe – With the supervision of Dr. Blank, patients can be reassured that the HCG Diet plan does not hurt the body, but only helps improve it.
- No side effects – Eating a low-calorie diet can cause hunger and fatigue, but using the HCG hormone shots with a low-calorie diet plan eliminates that!
- Long-term results – The weight lost while on the HCG Diet plan is easily maintainable and long-term, giving patients the results they’ve wanted.
