I am just going to come straight out and say it. If something says diet or rapid weight loss I don’t think people should do it. That being said, I also say, “Don’t knock it, until you try it”, quite a bit. So I am trying a diet many believe in for the next 21 days. I just started this morning. This is a diet I have thought of as a scam until I recently talked with a few experts on this particular diet. If you have been listening to my radio show you know I have become a bit of a guinea pig for alternative health. I recently ordered the questionnaire to see what metabolic type I am and have been working towards eating 80% raw for three months. This newest diet is going to ruin my 80% raw, which is honestly a 50 to 60% raw regimen.
So what diet am I doing? The hCG diet. I have to say the first two days of it are a hoot! Eat as much fat and sugar as you want. They call it pre-loading, as day three of the plan until day 21 you are only allowed 500 kcals. That is going to stink. One thing I completely disagree with is no breakfast. I always teach my clients to eat breakfast and eat regularly, this helps keep your metabolism revved. I will keep you posted on how I am doing and my thoughts, as I go.
Please don’t take this post as my recommendation to do the hCG diet. Who knows? I may change my mind by the end of the 21 days, but for now if it walks like a diet and talks like a diet, it’s a diet. So please just work on making one small modification at a time to your lifestyle and I promise you will reach your goals and be able to maintain them, because you would have overhauled your lifestyle. Not have just went on a diet!
All the best!
