Very Low calorie diet without HCG slows down metabolism. The more you diet, the more it is harder to lose weight, why? The answer is very simple; your body goes into “starvation mode”, and the body becomes more efficient at making the most of calories the body gets from the food and drink. The reason it is doing this is to protect the fat reserves of the body and use the lean muscles instead to provide it with the calories it needs. This would lead to muscle loss and would result to a low metabolic rate, which makes the body need fewer calories to keep it working and weight loss slows down. It’s like the body’s defense mechanism on a famine situation. So
Undertaking a very low calorie diet without any hcg supplements is in fact risky. It is important to take HCG drops because it inverts your bad fats into 1,200 to 2,000 calories. So while you are dropping weight on the low calorie diet, your body is getting all the calories it needs from the fat loss, thus not slowing your metabolism. Without HCG your muscles will break down, your essential healthy fats will follow, and you are basically just starving yourself.
