I get a lot of emails asking if there are any HCG side effects in men.
And to answer them it’s not much different from any potential side effects from women.
I think the question comes up though because HCG is seen as a female type hormone and they often ask if it’s going to make them less manly, or even one time I was asked if it was going to give him “man-boobs”.
Let me start off by saying no, it will not give you man-boobs or turn you into a woman.
In fact HCG is often given to young males who are having a hard time with puberty, and HCG can jumpstart the process.
But anyway, does the HCG diet have any negative effects for men?
Well besides your typical HCG diet dangers that I’ve talked about like mild headaches the first few days from detoxing, and the occasional leg cramp (which can be fixed with a simple potassium supplement), there isn’t anything left to discuss about specific dangers to men.
Men and women tend to react the same way to the diet except for one major difference, men tend to lose a lot more and a lot more quickly!
It’s just a fact of nature that on any diet or exercise program men will tend to do better if they are following the same guidelines. This is just the difference of how men and women’s biology differ.
If you’ve ever watch the TV show Biggest Loser you know the heavy men lost a lot quicker than any of the women in most cases. Especially overall, they lose a lot more weight and typically have an easier time. That’s not to say women don’t do well, because they certainly do, but if you are a woman on the diet don’t compare your results with a man’s because it’s not fair from the get-go.
So men, if you are thinking about doing the HCG diet you really don’t have to worry about anything from a side effect standpoint. Especially if you use a good oral product that has been shown to be safer than the injections and my preferred method.
So if you have weight to lose the best thing to do is to get started. The sooner you get going the sooner you’ll get the results you’re looking for. The more you delay the more likely you’ll be caught up into daily life and never get started. So get going now while you’re thinking about it. Within a couple short days on the diet you’ll see amazing results and you’ll be so glad you got started.
