THE FIRST THREE DAYS OF THE HCG VERY LOW CALORIE DIET CAN BE THE ABSOLUTE TOUGHEST DAYS YOU MIGHT EXPERIENCE ON THE HCG DIET. HCG AFFECTS ALL OF US DIFFERENTLY, BUT IN GENERAL, THERE ARE THREE PRIMARY REASONS FOR THE HEADACHES AND HUNGER PAINS FELT IN THESE FIRST FEW DAYS OF THE HCG.
1.Psychological hunger.It’s all in your head! Well, it might be anyways. Many people have found that distracting their mind plays a big role in keeping their hunger at bay. Keep a positive outlook. If you tell yourself that you are satisfied with your HCG meals and remind yourself that this is only going to benefit you, it can really take the edge off the hungry feelings.
2. We consume such an excessive amount of fat, sugar, salt, caffeine, and carbohydrates on a daily basis, thats when you hit Phase 2 of the HCG Diet, you’re basically going cold turkey from all of these things (well, maybe not the caffeine). This is why most people experience headaches in the first three days. As your body begins detoxifying, you may find yourself experiencing symptoms similar to withdrawals. This is totally normal! Feel free to take a grandpa or ibuprofen (not gel caps and watch out for sugar coating) if you have a headache and know that your body is going to love you for making the choice to get all the junk out of your system.
3.Not enough water/liquids.You should be drinking at least 3 to 4 liters of water per day on the HCG Diet if not more. If you’re not drinking enough water on HCG your body will not be able to flush out all the fat and toxins that it needs to and you won’t lose as quickly as you could. Just make sure that any coffee you drink is in addition to the 2 liters of water. Also, hot liquids will make you feel more full than cold liquids.
