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...

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 the 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???"

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,

HCG Diet Apple Day

Want To Know More About How To Do An HCG Diet Apple Day? An Apple Day can be very useful when it comes to breaking up a plateau on the HCG Diet. The only trouble is not everyone knows how Apple Days are supposed to be done. So today I thought we answer some of the more common questions that people ask about doing an HCG Diet Apple Day. What are Apple Days used for? For the most part Apple Days are used as a Plateau Breaker . When would I start my Apple Day? An Apple Day should always begin at lunch time and continue for 24 hours until lunch the following day. How many apples can I eat? You are allowed to have a total of six large apples throughout the course of the entire day. Do I have to eat my apples at certain times? No. Basically you can eat your apples whenever you'd like. But I would recommend that you eat an apple in place of each meal. Then in between your normal eating times if you find yourself getting hungry simply have another apple; just

Get Real HCG Here! The HCG Diet Plan is without a doubt the fastest and most effective way to lose  weight still even in 2023. However, simply eating 500-800 calories per day isn't enough to lose those unwanted pounds and inches; especially if you want to keep them off for good - For that you must also use high quality pharmaceutical grade HCG. These days though it can be tough to find a trusted company that offers the HCG Diet in full. That's why I recommend hcgRx to all of my readers. Over the years running The HCG 411 Blog I have seen a lot of different HCG companies come and go but none of them are like hcgRx. I have had many personal conversations with the owners and have never met someone who cares as much about their products and users as they do. hcgRx has a wide variety of HCG Diet packages and products to choose from online.  While most people prefer to do a single 28 day round at a time, there are longer rounds available that can be done depending on your weight loss
