The quick and easy answer is that there isn’t one! Many diets can work and are effective but it is important to find the one that works with your body and lifestyle. It’s a generally a good policy to take a look at which diets are popular because those ones tend to have a high rate of success. But no matter what a diet claims, it may not work for everyone. You may have heard of some recently popular diets like the Acai diet or the 17 Day Diet, but do you know what they are about or how they work? It’s important to know what a diet entails before deciding to try it out.
One diet in particular that has recently gotten a lot of media attention is the HCG diet. This diet was actually created about 50 years ago by Dr. Simeons but has only recently become popular. The main reason is because it has only recently been developed into homeopathic HCG drops which can be taken orally. Before the drops the HCG had to be taken through injections and were usually quite expensive. With the ability to take them without having to go to a clinic or pay a lot the drops have become quite popular.
The HCG diet is actually very simple. It requires you to go down to a 500 calorie per day diet which restricts many different foods. It’s basically 2 servings of protein, fruits, and vegetables per day. This doesn’t sound like much food per day but many people on this diet say that they are very satisfied and sometimes even too full with only 500 calories. The reason is because the HCG hormone tells the body to burn abnormal fat levels to use for energy. In fact, while on the diet your body will typically burn between 2,000 to 3,000 calories a day of fat. If you were to undertake this type of dieting without the HCG drops your body would burn muscle and normal fat levels before the abnormal fat levels which would cause you to feel hungry and tired.
Another great thing about this diet is that it requires no exercise. The dieting phase of this program can be as long as 42 days or as little as a week depending on how many pounds you have to lose. Most people lose about a half a pound up to three pounds a day while on this diet. And finally, it is fairly cheap (about $80) to get on this diet. As mentioned earlier not every diet works for everyone so most HCG companies online offer full money back guarantees with no questions asked if within the first 30 days of purchase. This allows one to try the diet to see if it will work for them. There isn’t a lot of risk with that type of guarantee.
So the best diet on the market really is a hard question to answer in general terms. It is best to think about your needs and then go over current diets on the market and see if they fit with your needs. And if one diet doesn’t work for you don’t get discouraged, simply try out another one until you find one that works!
