To begin with, let me re-iterate the purpose of HCG diet; the diet requires a dieter to stay in a very low calorie diet of either 800 or 1200 calorie diet per day following only a list of acceptable foods. Foods not found on the list are prohibited. Foods that contain carbohydrates and sugars should be eliminated from the diet entirely. To help the dieters live a healthier lifestyle, the diet plan requires the dieters to only choose all-natural foods which simply means replacing all conventional/processed food choices to organic ones. Conventional/processed foods contain additives and preservatives, antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides that may be the reason for health issues like obesity and other health risks such as heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes and many more. HCG Diet helps eliminate much of the toxin buildup by only taking in the healthy food choices found in the list.
That being said, the HCG Diet works as cleansing and detoxification in and of itself. A dieter can start the HCG diet plan without doing a cleanse if he or she chooses to. However, if the dieter wishes to do cleansing and detoxification to make the diet plan more effective and quicker, yes this program can bring additional benefit to weight loss.
