As the name implies the 800 calorie diet is specifically designed so that you consume only 800 calories per day. Many doctors have considered the 800 calorie diet as unsafe and dangerous. Hence, you might want to consult with your local physician and find out whether your body is fit to start out with the HCG diet.
Why 800 Calorie Diet?
Dr Simeons found out that when people consume low calorie food along with the HCG drops they tend to lose weight. The more important aspect to understand is that with low calorie intake the hypothalamus get reprogrammed. In the end your body gets used to consume low calorie food even after you have stopped the HCG drop usage.
Who should opt for 800 calorie diet?
There are three types of low calorie diet. They are:
- 800 and
The first type of low calorie diet is dangerous and hence should only be used by people who have adapted to low calorie living. The third type of diet (1200) is meant for beginners who have never accustomed to low calorie intake. And finally, the 800 calorie is meant for people who have experience with low calorie diet.
Hence, if you have already got used to the 1200 calorie diet then we suggest that you use 800 calorie diet. But if you are a first time user then I strongly vote against the usage of 800 calorie diet.
Note: Irrespective of whether you are starting the 800 calorie or 1200 calorie diet it is recommended that you consult your physician.
