How the HCG diet works
ATW Simeons, who formulated the diet, outlined the typical hCG diet in the 1954 book “Pounds and Inches: A New Way to Obesity”. Many nutritionists have emphasized the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, but under the regimen developed by Simeons, there is no solid food before lunch. If the dieter eats breakfast, it is usually a cup of sugar-free black coffee or tea. If you drink milk, you can drink one tablespoon every 24 hours.
Combined with a diet plan, the hCG diet requires daily injections of hormones. Dieters usually inject HCG into the thigh. Alternatively, people on the hCG diet can take the hormones through oral HCG drops, pills, sprays, etc.
