Fasting can lead to the much-desired weight loss, but the bad thing about it is that muscle loss takes place rather than the body fat that was intended. Muscles are heavy, and you might feel lighter if lots of muscles are lost during fasting. In due time after the fasting exercise is over, the body regains all the weight that was lost and adds even some more. While using HCG diet, the body loses body fat and retains the muscles thus making your weight loss more sustainable even after the treatment. While on HCG diet, there are some foods that you are advised to keep away from like salmon, herring and pickled or dried fish among others. Oranges, apples and other fruits like strawberries are allowed in this diet. You can take as much water, tea or coffee as you want, but milk is limited to only one teaspoon per day. Happy dieting!
