HCG 2.0

HCG 2.0

What is hCG 2.0?

Dr. Zach LaBoube, founder of InsideOut Wellness and Weight Loss and author of ‘Don’t Starve, Eat Smart and Lose: A Modern Adaptation of the Traditional HCG Diet. HCG 2.0’  has successfully taken the original hCG food list and diet and improved on the whole concept. He has taken currently research about topics such as the high protein diets of the Inuit Cultures, the low-carb Ketosis diet, and the modernized food statistics released by the Estimated Glycemic Load, Fullness Factor and Caloric Ratios to improve the hCG diet so that it is far safer and more realistic for modern-day working adults.

Understanding the Original hCG Diet

The basis of the original hCG diet remains the same. HCG, also known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a pregnancy hormone. Its key function is to help a pregnant woman’s metabolism effectively break down the systemic fat. Supplementing the human body with hCG when not pregnant also spurs the body to unlock fat reserves when used in conjunction with a low-calorie diet.

Grams Versus Calories

The traditional hCG diet designed by Dr. Simeons relied on grams for measurement of portions instead of calories. Modern research has shown that this is not an ideal way to determine calories. A 100-gram serving of lean beef contains roughly 248 calories, but 100 grams of salmon contains about 146 calories. Weighing food by grams is not an accurate indicator of how many calories an item contains. With the new 2.0 dietary hCG plan, this is factored in.

Protein and Carbs

The 1950s diet version by Dr. Simeons allowed carbs up to 80 grams of carbs from fruit, vegetables, and breadsticks. However, it did not provide an adequate level of protein for most working men. The carbs and low protein slows weight loss and leaves the dieter hungry.  Although the traditional Human Chorionic Gonadotropin based diet has been very successful throughout the decades it is very hard for many modern dieters and maybe a slower path towards weight loss for many compared to the new hCG 2.0 diet plan.

Fat Reserves are a Survival Mechanism

The fat reserves in the human body are a survival mechanism. They help individuals withstand long winters and times of famine. Unfortunately, the human body still harbors fat reserves for survival. This makes dieting difficult and, today, almost impossible because of the sedentary lifestyle that most individuals live and the poor dietary choices. Many people also simply have a genetic predisposition to harbor fat. Following the hCG 2.0 meal plan which involves consuming significantly lower calories while taking hCG drops the body is spurred to react like the metabolism of a pregnant woman.

HCG 2.0 Diet Versus the Traditional hCG Diet

The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is used to determine exactly how many calories you can consume with the hCG diet 2.0 food list. With the traditional hCG diet, dieters were only allowed to consume 500 calories per day. It did not matter if the dieter was male or female, big or small. The traditional diet was extremely strict. HCG 2.0 focuses on basic food chemistry to offer more protein options. The hCG 2.0 meal plan also allows increased portion sizes that have higher nutritional value. The entire hCG food list contains no empty calories. Instead, the foods used in the diet are all nutrient-rich sources of fuel for the body.
