If you are overweight, there is no need to despair, as there are many weight loss plans which can come in handy if you want to drop a few extra pounds. In this article, we are going to discuss about Dr. A. Simeons’ s hCG weight loss program which is considered a kind of atypical diet.

So, the first thing you need to know about this weight loss plan is that it combines a 500 calorie-a-day meal plan with the use of hCG injections. This may sound like something new and unconventional, yet you should know that this weight loss program has helped many people deal with obesity. Although many dietitians say that good results were mostly tied to the restrictive diet based on a low consumption of calories and high consumption of protein, it has proved to be efficient. However, additional precautions are required when following this diet, mostly because the hCG injections may have various side effects. Moreover, you should know that the scientific evidence for using this diet, and mainly the hCG injections, is lacking, which is why it is recommended to visit your personal doctor and see whether this weigh loss program can help you deal with an obesity problem, or on the contrary, worsen your general health state.

You can achieve better results if you perform the aerobic exercises while wearing some sort of weighted clothing.
