Most everyone is conscious about their outward appearance, especially when weight is a concerning factor. People seem to be more concerned on losing weight than anything else. Obesity not only makes people insecure and feel hopeless, it is a nasty condition that affects every organ in your body. It will kill you quicker than cancer or any other troubling disease or condition out there. The pericardium (surrounding layer of your heart) will become so incredibly fat-filled that it will destroy you without hesitation.
Let's face it, people who are obese generally have an inactive lifestyle. Not only does obesity often lead to conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, the risk of developing these conditions is amplified due to inadequate exercise and activity. Considering the severity of these conditions, people should seek to lose weight immediately, however, their choice of weight loss should be a healthy choice. Fighting one bad condition with other unhealthy choices doesn't seem like the smart thing to do.
There are various diet programs which actually do more harm to the body than good, considering the side-effects. Over the last couple of years, the HCG diet has become more and more popular because it appears to present yet another avenue to pursue out of obesity.
The dangers of the HCG diet are pretty severe, considering there are other options for healthy and effective weight loss that do not have a side-effect reputation such as these:
* Blood clots
* Mood swings
When the body is subjected to a drastic change in diet, or subjected to hunger, it reacts violently. Heavy diet changes cause potentially serious complications due to a variety of different factors. These factors include, but are not limited to the following:
* Severe drop in blood sugar (responsible for the headches, mood swings, and dizziness).
* Women can also acquire Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS). This is often a result of the hormone injections found as the key 'ingredient' to the HCG diet program.
- OHSS causes pelvic pain, swelling of extermities, stomach pain and vomiting.
So the question is- is it worth causing more health problems than you started with just to try to lose weight? Absolutely not. In fact, the more unhealthy you become, the longer it will take your body to operate properly to be able to function in shedding pounds.
What you probably don't know is that in early 1975, the FDA disproved the claims that the HCG diet injections actually help you to lose weight.
When people are desperate for a solution, they will try anything, going to extremes and risking their much valuable health and life.
