  • Isn't it bad for you - to only be eating just 500 calories a day?

    Well, normally the answer would be - yes, it is bad for you. Because basically what happens is, when you are eating only 500 calories a day, your body goes into "starvation mode" which can have a very negative effect on your metabolism. 

    However, what people need to realize is, when you use the HCG hormone, the HCG causes your Hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the "fat storage" so that it’s available for your body to use.

    What does this mean?

    This means that your body is still using the same 3,000 calories that most people use during the course of a day. But only 500 calories of that is coming from the food that you're eating. So this means that 2,500 calories will have to come from that previously stored fat - which is how you are able to safely lose so much weight.

    See normally you would be eating more calories, which is what gives your body fat to burn. But since you are not eating your usual amount of calories, your body is told to get it from somewhere else. That's where the HCG comes in, it tells your body to use the fat that has been stored up or "deposited into the fat bank".

    This is why it is so important to do the Gorge days correctly. You want to make sure that you eat enough fatty foods so that your body can use it when it needs to.

    Do you think the 500 calorie diet is bad for you?
