Why Drinking Wine on the Official HCG Diet Plan Might Derail Your Weight Loss
“Sweets, pastries, and alcohol will most rapidly of all foods allay the pangs of hunger.” – Dr. A.T.W. Simeons
Looking to shed those extra pounds and embark on a weight loss journey with the Official HCG Diet Plan? Fantastic! But before you uncork that bottle of wine to accompany your meal, let’s delve into why this indulgence might hinder your progress.
Now, we all know that drinking beer has its time and place—typically during lively get-togethers with the boys or when cheering on your favorite team. However, when it comes to fine dining, nothing screams sophistication quite like savoring a glass of wine with your meal. Unfortunately, the Official HCG Diet Plan is not your typical fine dining experience. It involves strict dietary restrictions, which means bidding farewell to starches, sweets, and yes, even wine.
While wine might not fall into the starches and sweets categories, it’s important to note that it is calorie-laden, potentially reversing your hard-earned weight loss progress. But don’t just take our word for it—let the numbers speak for themselves. Pour yourself a glass of wine to accompany one of our protein-based HCG diet recipes, and when you step on the scale the next morning (as you must do on the plan), observe the results. If you find that you haven’t lost weight or, heaven forbid, you’ve actually gained weight, consider it a successful experiment, signaling that it’s time to put a cork in wine drinking until you reach your ideal weight.
Moreover, there’s another factor to consider. If you find yourself experiencing hunger pangs, your mind may naturally gravitate towards alcohol or sweets. As the esteemed Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, the founder of the HCG diet, observed in his studies, “sweets, pastries, and alcohol will most rapidly of all foods allay the pangs of hunger.”
