The various providers of the HCG Plan to lose weight can make all of the claims that they care to, but what really counts is the satisfaction of those who have used the plan and what they have to say in their HCG diet reviews. The crucial issues are: does the plan work? Are the serious side effects? Do people who follow the diet actually lose weight?
The following testimonies have been culled from various HCG Plan participants over the past several months. Here are their unedited HCG diet reviews:
In September 2011, Emily wrote that “HCG rocks!” She had this enthusiasm for the HCG Plan because, she wrote, “The Atkins and South Beach diets makes one much more tired than the HCG diet,” an opinion shared by many.
Another of the HCG diet reviews provided some fascinating advice and a simple meal plan that helped Brandon to lose weight. He had many great things to say about the HCG Plan in September 2011: “I tried the HCG diet and it worked for me,” he wrote, adding, “The first week is really hard, but once you get past that first week it’s pretty easy.” Several other people who followed the HCG diet plan had similar comments about the early stages of the diet.
Brandon’s daily menu gave hints as to why he experienced such weight loss success. Here is his plan: nothing bigger than his hand for breakfast, one grilled chicken breast for lunch, fresh fruit for snacks and more grilled chicken for dinner.
Brandon reports that he lost 25 pounds in one month and 2.5 inches from his waist, adding that he is a professional firefighter and could not have followed a diet plan that made him weak and tired. He concluded by noting that he still worked out regularly to stay in shape for his job, but did not advise heavy workouts for those on the diet.
Elizabeth chimed in on the benefits of the HCG diet: “I want to say that this diet REALLY works!” she exclaimed, adding “I started it back in May for two weeks and lost 17 pounds.” She added that she did “cheat” a few times on the diet as she prepared meals for her family and sampled a few, but that she had re-started the diet in September and lost 11 pounds in one week. She concluded: “This diet is not a walk in the park, but it DEFINITELY will give you fast results.”
Among other HCG diet reviews, Candy raised a couple of issues that some people have with the HCG diet plan. Despite her joy over losing 5 pounds in just five days, Candy said that she struggled with eating at the specified times, commenting that the wait between taking HCG drops and eating was quite difficult, especially as she prepared meals for her family.
Additional HCG diet reviews can be found online and they seem to follow a similar theme: the diet plan is difficult, especially in the early going, but those who follow the plan are almost guaranteed to be satisfied with the results. One of the primary benefits of the plan, most would agree, is a lack of fatigue that other diets have produced.
