We at HCG Miracle Diet are firm believer's in the importance of eating as organically as possible, especially on the HCG Diet. Below is a great article on Five Reasons Why it Pays to Buy Organic by Dianna Dill, The Armchair Herbalist.
In a perfect world, all the food we bought would be organic. Unfortunately, we live in a world where we have to pay a premium price to buy organic food. In recent years, the organic versus non-organic debate has become one of the liveliest in the food world: Is organic food worth paying more for? In this article, we will review 5 reasons why it pays to go organic. In a nutshell, organic food is good: good for the environment, good for you and good for the small-scale family farms that grow it.
Organic food is produced based on a system of farming that has, at its heart, a fundamental commitment to human health, animal welfare and a sustainable environment. Organic farming methods are tailored to maintain and replenish soil fertility without the use of any toxic or persistent chemical inputs. According to the National Organic Standards Board, it is geared toward restoring and enhancing biological cycles and ecological harmony.
Organic food is GMO-free. It is real, natural food, unlike the synthetic, genetically-engineered "Frankenfood" that is created in a laboratory for profit. Based on US federal requirements, organically-raised animals cannot have their genes modified or be fed any genetically engineered foods. These animals cannot be administered any antibiotics, bovine human growth hormone (rbGH) or other synthetic drugs.
Organic food does not contain toxic chemical residues such as pesticides, heavy metals and synthetic fertilizers. Tests conducted by the USDA show that most non-organic fruit and vegetables have residual pesticides, even after they are scrubbed or peeled. When systemic pesticides are used, they are absorbed into the entire fruit, and as such are impossible to remove. Peaches, apples, celery, pears and strawberries were found to carry the heaviest pesticide load.
With its zero tolerance for synthetic chemicals, organic farming helps protect essential water resources from contamination. According to estimates by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), run off of pesticides from industrial agriculture has contaminated the groundwater in 38 states, polluting the main source of drinking water for over half of the country's population. The Environmental Working Group reports that the levels of herbicide contamination in some cities' tap water exceeds federal lifetime standards for months at a time.
A Healthier Choice
There is growing evidence that organic food has a higher nutrient density than commercially produced food. This is because organically-raised animals, such as free range chickens and grass-fed cattle, live in a healthier, natural environment and usually eat a much wider variety of nutrients than their factory-raised counterparts. These animals have been shown to be significantly healthier than those that are raised on factory farms.
Furthermore, organic foods undergo minimal processing, so as to maintain the food's integrity. The addition of synthetic industrial ingredients such as preservatives, artificial flavors, food coloring or irradiation is strictly prohibited.
Support Organic Farmers
By buying organic, you support the small-scale family farms that produce organic foods, which not only supports their livelihood but also benefits local economies. Organic methods, which are more labor-intensive than conventional farming, create job opportunities for rural communities. This in turn increases tax revenues, which can be invested in funding schools, hospitals and other public works.Researchers have also found that by practicing organic farming methods, these farmers reduce their production costs by more than 25%. This is as a result of eliminating the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and increasing their crop yields up to five-fold in less than 5 years. This explains why organic farms have consistently been found to be more profitable than conventional farms.

There has been allot of confusion about the role of exercise and the HCG Diet. In fact most places tell you NOT to exercise at all while on the HCG Diet. The reality is that you should do some exercise daily while on the HCG Diet BUT you don’t want to overdo it. This is one of the great benefits of the HCG Miracle Diet, it works without rigorous or even average amount of exercise.
The key here is moderation and common sense. Because of how the HCG Diet work in the body through Ketosis though you will not feel hungry you must remember that you are on a very limited caloric intake that is simply not enough to support an intense workout. Over exercising during the diet can force your body into Starvation Mode despite the benefits of the HCG itself.
Dieters who insist on incorporating a workout while on the HCG diet could significantly decrease their weight loss. While limited amounts of exercise are okay (20 minutes of walking or other light cardio, for instance) intense workouts just aren't supportable on the HCG Miracle Diet.
HCG dieters who were upset by the lack of exercise incorporated in the program eventually realized that the weight loss and fat loss were worth the lack of exercise. When they got back to the gym they had better work outs than ever before. The weight loss leaves you with more energy and you'll feel the effects of a more healthy weight as you pick up your exercise regime where you left off.

HCG Miracle Diet
As you continue on your journey to Discover a Whole New You on the HCG Miracle Diet there are a few tools that you can employ to support you as you go about transforming your life. We have complied a few FREE tools that will help you progress forward and have posted them at FREE HCG Miracle Diet Tools on our blog on the menu to the right.. These tools will help you to stay on track and then when you have achieved your goal weight they will continue to help maintain the weight loss that you worked so hard to achieve. We will continually be adding new tools to this page so check back often.
Here are a few more tools that will help you reach your goals:
• Weight Loss/ Food Journal
Medical research studies have shown that people who keep a weight loss/ food journal lost more weight than their counterparts who were also following a diet but not using a journal. Keeping a food journal, weighing and measuring your food helps you to become keenly aware of what you are eating. When you start your journal, you simply agree to write down everything that you put into your mouth every day. Keeping a food journal makes you accountable to yourself for how well you are sticking with your program.
• Diet Counselor/ Coach
Another method of being accountable to someone is by working with a weight loss counselor or coach. There is a bit of a difference between the two roles that should be made clear. A weight loss counselor will help you work through some of those deep, hidden issues that you may be trying to mask or medicate by eating too much of the wrong foods. Once you have dealt with those issues that may be standing in the way of your ability to lose weight, you may find it easier to follow the HCG diet.
A weight loss coach will be an accountability partner, he or she will encourage you when you need it and will motivate you when you need it. A coach is not necessarily a counselor, but they can help support you in your weight loss journey in many tangible ways. Remember, if you need help be sure and send us an email at coaching@HCGMiracleDiet.com!

Oolong Tea (Wu-Yi Tea) Increases Fat Metabolism and Decreases Obesity
Scientific studies that are discussed at OolongTea.org, suggest that laboratory tests in both animals and humans prove that Oolong tea decreases fat cells, increases the rate of metabolism, burn fat and clearly decreases triglyceride levels and cholesterol levels in some people.
The animal study included three groups of rats. The control group of rats were fed a normal diet, while the second group of rats were fed a high-calorie diet with additional fat and water. The third group ingested the same high calorie diet with the only difference being the addition of being given Oolong tea. The two groups of rats that were given a high calorie diet gained more weight than the control group. However, scientists found that the group that was given Oolong tea had a smaller quantity of visceral and subcutaneous fat than the group that did not ingest the tea, proving that the Oolong tea prevented obesity without affecting growth.
During a clinical trial of seventy-five obese people who had become obese due to over-eating and lack of exercise, echography sensors proved that the Oolong tea decreased the thickness of subcutaneous fat after only six weeks of use.
For the individuals that had higher than standard triglycerides and cholesterol before the test, post trial testing showed that triglycerides and cholesterol levels clearly dropped in some people.
As an added benefit to the study, sixty-seven percent of people lost weight. Between the animal study and human trials, it has been confirmed that Oolong tea promotes fat metabolism and controls obesity.
