HCG Diet- Those last 10 pounds
Loosing weight results in Fat cells releasing the fat that is stored in them.
Fat is stored in fat cells the first step is to empty them, the next is to allow the fat cells to be metabolized. Depending on how many fat cells were created to store this unwanted fat will determine how long it will take to tighten that loose skin and loose that last 10 or so pounds.
When you lose weight you are not loosing Fat cells, they are just being emptied
One of our HCG dieters was commenting about the diet, and how difficult it was to lose the last 10 pounds. Although she had been very successful for 3 earlier rounds of HCG,and had lost over 60 pounds, she could not understand why her body had stopped dropping the weight. She was also hungry on this last round, while she had not experienced hunger during the earlier portion of the HCG diet.This experience is not uncommon. What we have found, is that the storage of fat cells eventually gets to be emptied out, and the body tells you it’s time to stop. The constant hunger shows up because there is no more fat storage to live off of. The HCG Diet needs fat to work properly, and when you’re out of extra fat, it’s time to stop, and allow the body to stabilize for awhile.
You have 10 to 20 million fat cells at the time of birth. This causes you to be predisposed to a healthy weight gain in order to grow and develop. As we get older the amount of fat cells grows with us so we wind up with a large amount of fat cells. This gives us a place to store the fat that we use for fuel.
When people who are 40 to 50 pounds overweight begin the diet, it is not uncommon for them to lose 2 or 3 pounds a day. This is more likely to occur in men or women who have a large amount of weight to lose. Unfortunately, when you are more than 15 or 20 lbs overweight, the body is forced to manufacture more fat cells to store the new fat. The body is also forced to create a whole new infrastructure of capillary tubing in order to support all of the additional fat. For every pound of fat, there is one mile of blood vessels required to accommodate it. Consequently, a person who is 40 lbs. overweight requires about 40 miles of capillary tubing to accommodate the fat.
Those last stubborn 10 lbs. is the weight of the infrastructure that was once needed to store the fat. Since fat cells have mass, they also have weight, even though they are empty and tiny. So now we may still have an extra 20 to 50 million extra fat cells, that are adding to the overall weight problem. The Homeopathic HCG did what it was supposed to do by burning all the fat, but the extra cells remain.
So the proverbial last 10 pounds can be a problem for awhile, as the body tries to adjust to the new weight, that doesn’t need the extra cells any longer. Although the 10 to 20 lb. weight loss is rarely a problem as long as the HCG Diet protocol is followed, the last 10 lbs. at the end of a large weight loss plan can take considerably longer, because the body needs time to dispose of the infrastructure of capillaries and extra fat cells. Exercise in the area where the fat was lost, is one way to turn the fat cells into muscle cells.
Time is another way to dissolve the extra weight. After awhile, another short round of HCG is likely to jump start the process again, and you are more likely to get down to your ideal weight.
Hunger is your body’s way of telling you that it wants more nutrition. Eating super foods and the most highly nutritious food you can find after you’re done the diet, will certainly help your body to stabilize. Also, after finishing the HCG diet, most people have been pleasantly surprised to find that it has repaired their metabolism and their cravings for unhealthy food. Conversely, if you go back to the very unhealthy diet or alcohol consumption, that created the problem in the first place, the weight will slowly but surely return.
