The Psychological Part Of The HCG Diet

  • Having the right mind-set can mean the difference between success and failure on the HCG Diet!

    It is said that a big part of the HCG Diet is psychological, so if you are in the right state of mind, you are more likely to keep losing weight. This is especially true during a plateau. Today, a woman named Danielle, left a comment on one of my other blog posts and it brought up a good point. This is what it said...

    "Why around day 15 in P2 do I start to get cravings for foods we can not have during our losing phase? This is my 3rd time and did not have this problem the first time! The second round I craved nuts and this time it's carb's... (the bad ones) not sugar but I want stuff like crackers or chips and I even eat them in my dreams... Not for real but when I do dream of them I do not have a loss as if I ate them for real, what is going on with my brain?

    Thanks, Danielle

    I really like it when people leave comments and ask questions because it makes me have to think about things a little bit more - This was my reply to Danielle's questions...

    "Hey Danielle,

    I think that as we get more comfortable with the diet and how it works, our cravings tend to get stronger for some reason. (just my opinion) But don't worry you are not alone - most of us have cravings for foods that we can't have while on the HCG Diet.

    To answer this question...

    A big part of the HCG Diet is psychological. I don't know if we can will ourselves to lose weight - but Dr Simeons says that breaking up a Plateau with an apple day is purely psychological. Meaning that, doing an apple day will trick your brain to start losing weight again. So I think that if you can trick your brain into losing weight - Your dreams may trick your brain to stop losing. Make sense? Kind of?

    Anyways, that's my take on it, I hope this helps. Thanks for the comment Danielle,

    This is why it is so important to have a positive outlook on things, even more so while on the HCG Diet. So try to keep this in mind when you are on the diet. And who knows, you might see a lot better results.
