Today, we are going to compare the hCG diet and the Atkins diet.
The Atkins Diet under Scrutiny
The Atkins diet requires you to cut down on carbohydrates because this is the first thing you body burns. With this out of the way, it then burns fat stores. Because of the absence of carbohydrates, the body is forced into “ketosis” which encourages the metabolism of fat.
The downside to this diet is that the unregulated portions may lead to kidney damage, while the lack of carbohydrates may also lead to liver damage.
What are the differences between the Atkins diet and the hCG diet?
- When on the Atkins diet, you’re supposed to give up practically all your carbohydrates. The hCG diet is more lenient and allows you more freedom in choosing the foods you eat.
- Both diets result in weight loss, but not sustainable weight loss. The hCG is more likely to help you in the long run because it resets the hypothalamus to speed up your metabolism.
- The Atkins diet may make you feel miserable because of the lack of carbohydrates. Some of its users don’t recommend it because it’s easy for people to gain the weight back as soon as they start eating carbohydrates again. It can also make you feel miserable, not to mention the insufficient fiber in your diet as carbohydrates are where most people have their fill of fiber. Other side effects include constipation, diarrhea and nausea.
- With the hCG diet, you can lose 30 pounds a month or even more. The number of pounds you lose on the Atkins diet varies from person to person.
We recommend the hCG diet because it’s effective and deals with the problem directly. People with slow metabolisms now have the option of having faster metabolisms.
