  • Do you get headaches now that you are on the HCG Diet?

    Pounding Headaches have been a problem for people on the HCG Diet since it was first created. I personally think that it's a mixture of 2 things, the low amount of calories that you are eating, and withdrawal from sugar, caffeine, or other food additives.

    As for me, I seem to get headaches if I am on the run and have not eaten very much that particular day - So it only makes sense to assume that this would happens to people while on the 500 Calorie Diet.

    Now, if you are getting headaches during the diet, they should go away after the first week. This is what Dr. Simeons says about headaches in his book Pounds and Inches: A new approach to obesity.

    "In fact the only self-medication we allow is aspirin for a headache, though headaches almost invariably disappear after a week of treatment, particularly if of the migraine type."

    So according to Dr Simeons, if you do get find yourself getting headaches while on the HCG Diet, it should only be during that first week.

    2 Things You Can Do About Your HCG Diet Headache:

      Headache, Stress, HCG Side Effect
    • like it says above, Dr Simeons allows you to take Aspirin for your headache. So be sure to have a couple on hand in case you suddenly feel a headache coming on.

    • When I get a bad headache, I have sometimes found that eating an apple helps to take it away. This is one of those "natural remedy" type things and it really seems to work well. But remember, if you do use the apple trick, make sure to eliminate 1 fruit from your lunch or dinner.

    Another thing that you might want to think about is, are you getting enough sleep. Some people have said that they sleep a lot less during the HCG Diet - And it's a well known fact that lack of sleep can sometimes cause headaches.

    Now keep in mind, some people who experience headaches on the HCG Diet Plan, will get them even after the first week. If this is the case, you can still use the same coarse of action.
