Doctor :   Reducing weight of around 70 kgs in 9 months would be difficult.
Doctor :   It is recommended to reduce 10 kgs in 1 yr gradually.
Doctor :   Otherwise reducing 70 kgs drastically would harm your health.
User :   i am ready to make anything so i can be thing and nice again on my wedding day. Sure i know that is difficult and risky. But there is no any way or smthg? I know a woman in my town near that lost 70 kilos in 9 months too by eating protein and limiting carbs
User :   so there is nothing i can do about it yeah?
Doctor :   There are many fitness centers which promises you to reduce weight but there are high chances to regain those weight again and might be more than now.
Doctor :   I would recommend you to try to reduce your weight with dieting and physical exercises.
Doctor :   rather than taking protein powder.
Doctor :   There are surgeries like liposuction done now a days but as you know every surgery has its own side effects.
User :   Yes i do know that. One doctor in my nearest clinic suggest doing the
User :   HCG diet
User :   which makes u lose 0.5 kilos per DAY.
User :   Do u reckon this programme?
Doctor :   As I already said drastic reduction will have a toll on your health in future.
User :   Yes exactly. I do understand that. What I am wondering about is the HCG diet. How does it work? by injection of a specific hormon ? What do u know about this diet?
User :   If u know smthg about this diet. Then can u please let me know some information?
Doctor :   Give me a few minutes to refer a journal so that I could answer you better.
User :   Ok
Doctor :   HCG diet is actually administration of HCG injections.
Doctor :   HCG is a hormone produced by our body only in females most of them during pregnancy.
Doctor :   23 injections will administered with strict diet protocol.
Doctor :   Are you there?
User :   yes
User :   i have recharged coz i my credit finished
Doctor :   Ok.
User :   thank you for staying here
Doctor :   As we were discussing on HCG diet, there are documented evidence found that HCG hormonal injections are not the cause of the weight loss.
User :   is actually the decreased amount
User :   of energy intake?
Doctor :   Yes, You are right.
Doctor :   Its the main diet control which reduces the weight.
User :   so is sort of convincing people that the HCG hormone does work and so that they continue having the strict diet, giving them inner will to... Oh i see
Doctor :   yes, you are right.
Doctor :   I suggest you to follow a strict diet protocol and physical exercises and reduce weight as much as possible.
User :   So u are against the Hcg diet protocol?even without the HCG injection?
User :   ok
User :   doctor
Doctor :   Diet protocol is good. If you strictly follow.
User :   You are talking about the specific HCG protocol? or any other?
Doctor :   The specific HCG diet protocol allows you to consume only 500 calories per day. You can follow this regime.
Doctor :   And when you feel unsatisfied after meals you can have vegetable salads.
Doctor :   Avoid hydrogenated drinks.
Doctor :   Avoid alcohol and smoke.
User :   Ok do u think that by consuming the Hcg 500 calories per day each months and taking the right amount of multivitamins that I will have any side effects?
User :   *every day for 9 months
Doctor :   There would side effects initially but later will reduce gradually as your body will get adapted to the present state of consumption of food.
User :   Ok another question
Doctor :   Please proceed
User :   As we all know any specific diet
User :   reaches
User :   plateu
Doctor :   Ok
User :   after some days.
User :   if i will follow the Hcg protocol and face plateu after some days
User :   what do u reckon for boosting metabolism and starting losing again/
User :   ?
Doctor :   Here is where the physical exercises come into work.
Doctor :   Along with diet plan, physical exercises are must.
Doctor :   You can start with brisk walking at 6 km per hour speed and gradually increasing the distance.
User :   Ok i understand. So u reckon starting exercising from the first day of diet. Or start the physical exercise when i see that i have reached plateau
User :   ?
Doctor :   I suggest to start the exercises from the first day of diet.
User :   I see
User :   What i am wondering is that

User :   how can i have power for exercising.I dont mean mental .Coz mentally i am ready to run miles
User :   How can i consume 500 and exercising too.I want to do that . But will it be ok?
Doctor :   Initially it would be difficult but you wont start at a stretch. You have to gradually increase the distance.
Doctor :   Yes, it would be fine.
User :   OK
