The hCG diet has a great history of helping people lose weight, especially abnormal fat, in the fastest and healthiest way possible. The P90x workout program is backed by all kinds of sexy infomercials that show how anyones’s muscle tone can become stone-cut ripped. It is a very successful commercial enterprise. Here is how it worked in real life for one of my close friends, and how the hCG diet plan turned out to be what he was really looking for.
We will just call my friend ‘Ralph’ so only he and his wife know who I am talking about. Ralph is a large man in the first place, who has been very active into his mid-30s. He even played city league football until very recently.
Like a lot of us, Ralph seemed to gain weight easily and lose it with difficulty. Being of an athlete’s mindset, he decided that he could bludgeon his body into submission by taking on the P90x program to lose weight and get into better shape. Unfortunately, very few people can succeed in the program, because it is so demanding. I thought that Ralph would be one of them, if anything because of his athletic experience and his determination to succeed.
How did it work out for him? Recently, Ralph called me to ask about the hCG diet plan and what it would take for him to drop a few pounds. He has a new job and is a new father and, well, the P90x program was just not doable as part of his new lifestyle. He had already put on tens of extra pounds … I don’t know how many exactly.
Now for the good news. Ralph is now in the maintenance phase after a 30-day protocol, and he has dropped 30 pounds since he began. This is typical for men, to drop at least a pound per day. Oh, you can bet that I heard some complaints from him, and he had lots of questions and ideas for making things ‘easier’.
Nevertheless, that old determination that has served Ralph so well in other areas of his life got him through a highly successful run through the hCG diet. Way to go ‘Ralph’!
Now I imagine that whatever workout program Ralph decides to adopt is going to be a lot easier since he has 30 fewer pounds to carry around when he exercises. He doesn’t need the P90x program, and he never did. He just needed a jumpstart, which is what the hCG diet plan helped him get.
All the best,
