The Time to Eat
Many people are emotional eaters; they eat mainly to satisfy their emotions-depression, stress, frustrations, etc. These people have the toughest time on the HCG diet. HCG drops help “the hunger brought by craving,” 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 press forward with the diet. HCG helps people to see more clearly what their emotional triggers are.
The Food to Eat
The food choices in the HCG diet were carefully chosen and specially designed by Dr. Simeons so their chemical makeup wouldn’t interfere with each other or the HCG drops to maximize weight loss. Each food chosen is a healthy and very appropriate choice for a well-balanced diet beyond the HCG program. Once the program is done, many HCG dieters discover that they are now used to making more healthy and balanced choices; paying close attention to nutrition information and ingredients.
The Quantity to Eat
Another benefit HCG teaches is the portion control. It is perhaps the most common benefit people mention after finishing a round of HCG drops. HCG dieters become used to eating portions that are actually smaller than their habitual portions. When dieters transition into their post-HCG life, they are more responsible and knowledgeable about their diet and they often find it much easier to eat healthy portions of food.
