Can hCG Diet Get Rid Of Cellulite?

Our society has long valued the maintenance of a youthful appearance and fit body. As such, a combination of treatments has been developed to correct skin irregularities, along with effective weight loss programs that can result in extra body fat and cellulite reduction. One such diet program is the hCG diet weight loss program.

So can hCG diet get rid of cellulite? The hCG diet plan is the combination of the injection of shots of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone with an extremely low-calorie diet. A reduced appearance of cellulite following this treatment plan is to be expected because it helps shed extra pounds. However, it's not a permanent solution despite being a convenient solution for body cellulite appearance.

How hCG Diet Get Rid Of Cellulite 

The hCG diet is a 500-800 calorie diet plan designed for rapid weight loss. It helps you lose unwanted fat in your body. It helps regulate other metabolic processes, such as providing an additional energy source, lowering cholesterol levels, regulating hormonal imbalances, and providing better endurance.

The hCG diet also helps improve the skin's elasticity, thus helping you achieve better body contouring. Through better body contours and losing additional fat cells, the dimpled skin and bumpy appearance associated with cellulite are visibly improved upon through the hCG diet.

The hCG diet is also advisable for women who desire to get pregnant but have difficulty doing so, because hCG is a pregnancy hormone and taking extra doses may help stimulate fertility.

How To Follow An hCG Diet 

An hCG diet entails following a strict diet of very low calories and injecting doses of hCG hormones. It's divided into three phases namely:

  • Loading phase - This is the phase where you buff up your entire body with high fat, high-calorie foods, which last for 2 days. This is also the phase where you start taking hCG injections.
  • Weight loss phase - Lasting for 3 weeks (for minimal weight loss) to 6 weeks (for significant weight loss), this phase is when you decrease your calorie intake to only 500 calories. You continue taking hCG during this phase, especially because taking hCG helps suppress the feeling of hunger despite cutting your calorie intake drastically.
  • Maintenance phase - This is the phase when you stop taking hCG. You also gradually increase your food intake during this phase but sweet and starchy foods must be avoided for at least 3 weeks.

Safety Of hCG Diet

The administration of hCG, along with the diet plan itself, hasn't been approved by the US FDA. This raises a lot of concern regarding the safety and efficacy of this diet plan, especially since it uses unregulated drugs possibly containing other unknown ingredients aside from hCG. Despite the amount of 200 IU for weight loss being smaller than the recommended doses of hCG for alternative uses, consumers then must be cautious in following this kind of diet. 

Some side effects associated with hCG diet include headaches, depression, and fatigue. There's also the risk of testicular tumors, ovarian hyperstimulation, among others, which is associated with the prescribed doses of hCG that range from 500 to 4000 IU. Moreover, clinical studies also raise the possibility that thromboembolism might be the result of a 64-year-old woman following the hCG diet.

Similarly, pregnant women must stop following the hCG diet because it may bring many adverse effects in their pregnancy due to the extremely low-calorie intake and the overabundance of hCG hormones. Even women who desire to lose weight in preparation for pregnancy should consider other diet plans instead of the hCG diet due to these possible adverse effects.

Other Ways To Get Rid Of Cellulite 

Cellulite frequently occurs around the hips, thighs, and buttocks. There's no cure that can permanently get rid of cellulite, but there are certainly ways to help improve its appearance by reducing dimpling and sagging of the skin. Other ways to improve the appearance of cellulite include:

  • Exercising regularly - Exercises that may target the muscles where cellulite frequently occurs include alternate leg push-off, bodyweight squat, glute bridge exercise, among others. These exercises may help replace fats present in these areas with muscles, giving you a more toned body and lifting the loose skin in the process.
  • Undergoing a deep massage - A deep massage may not provide a permanent improvement on cellulite appearance but inflammation and swelling from deep massage may help provide a temporary lifting of cellulite appearance.
  • Exfoliating with coffee - Since caffeine found in coffee may cause local constriction of blood vessels, exfoliating the parts with cellulite with coffee may help improve the smoothen the dimpled skin appearance of cellulite.
  • Using dry brushing - While dry brushing (a technique where you brush your skin with long, circular strokes) can't really improve cellulite, the swelling and inflammation associated with this technique may help temporarily make your skin look softer.
