The Latest Diet Craze: The HGH Diet?
You’ve probably heard of (or tried) many of the famous diets out there. You know, the ones that have bestselling books, a host of foods, supplements and supporting materials to go along with them, and probably an “expert” celebrity or nutrition/fitness guru whose name is attached. There’s the DASH Diet, the Atkins diet, Paleo and Mediterranean diets, established programs like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig, and more keep rolling in every day, it seems. Have you ever heard of an HGH diet? It’s not a famous diet with mega advertising and rabid devotees, but it just may hold the key to real weight loss for some who are struggling with staying fit and healthy in these food-centric times.
HGH is, of course, Human Growth Hormone, naturally produced by the body in larger quantities during youth to fuel growth and development of muscles, bones, internal organs and to help us attain our full height. Homeopathic growth hormone height changes are unknown. However, as the effects of aging have gone under the microscope in recent years as scientists and medical professionals attempt to find ways for us to slow or even reverse the aging process, the beneficial effects of having enough HGH in our bodies are only beginning to emerge. Because our bodies don’t produce HGH in our 20’s, 30’s and beyond like it did in youth, we begin to see a slow decline in energy, skin tone, muscle definition and organ health. Another common result? Belly fat, excess weight, middle age spread – whatever it is called, it means our bodies have a harder time maintaining an ideal weight.
In 1997, a study was published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism detailing the effects of HGH. The study found HGH could effectively lower blood pressure, reduce belly fat, increase fat metabolism, possibly be effective in treating chronic disease, and improve lean body mass! In short, HGH can be a very effective tool in maintaining an ideal body weight, or helping shed those unwanted pounds that were once considered just another part of the aging process. However, there’s a reason you haven’t heard a new diet expert hawking the HGH diet . . . there isn’t one.
So, how can you lose or maintain your weight with the help of Human Growth Hormone? First, you need to ensure your body is receiving the proper amount of the hormone. If you are older than puberty, it is likely your body has slowed production quite a bit. In order to boost your levels, you might consider an HGH supplement. In addition to this, in order to effectively keep an ideal weight with an “HGH diet,” you’ll want to be sure your daily eating plan includes plenty of lean protein and good carbs, which will help boost your body’s HGH production, and that is also low in fat, which could actually encourage your body to produce less HGH. An effective plan should include half your total intake from good carbs, a third in protein, and the remainder in healthy fats. Foods to include in your eating plan are lean red meat, chicken, turkey, seafood and low-fat dairy; vegetables, fruits and whole grains; nuts, seeds, and healthy oils. Limit or eliminate sugar, refined flour, alcohol, and processed or junk food.
Not only will you see the results in a more toned and youthful appearance, but side effects may include more energy, less health issues, a better weight, and a positive sense of well-being!
