Many people are using the HCG diet to lose extra pounds and to keep them off. Yet, you need to be very careful about the things that you eat when you are on this type of program. Eating foods that contain wheat starch may be a bad idea and here are reasons why.

The first part of any HCG diet concerns eating a great deal for a few days, then you must stay on a low calorie meal plan for as long as you intend to lose weight. This plan works well because you are eating the right kinds of foods and you are maintaining consistency. Most people do not make mistakes at this point.

When people enter the maintenance phase of the HCG diet, they are prone to making serious errors. In order to maintain your weight, you cannot eat sugar and you must avoid certain carbohydrates. It is very important to avoid wheat products as they have starch that can cause many problems.

Wheat contains a complex carbohydrate starch and this starch has concentrated glucose or sugar. This is perhaps one of the easiest types of carbohydrates for you to digest. This may seem like a good thing, as most people seek to make their digestion process as simple as possible. Yet, bad things can happen when you digest complex carbohydrates too quickly.

Most people understand that they should not eat too many sugary foods if they want to lose weight. Sugar is high in calories and it also raises blood sugar significantly. Yet, your blood sugar will rise in a similar fashion if you eat a sandwich with wheat bread. When blood glucose rises rapidly it also drops suddenly, and this happens when you eat sugar or wheat starch.

When your blood sugar suddenly falls you become hungry. It makes no difference if it has only been a short time since your last meal. This is why many people eat when they should not. They are taking in foods that actually make them hungry in a short amount of time.

If you are serious about keeping off the weight with an HCG diet plan, make sure to avoid wheat starch and foods that contain wheat. This will help to keep your blood sugar on an even keel and you will be less prone to hunger urges. Also, many people are sensitive to gluten in wheat, so you may also feel much better if you avoid wheat starch.
