To maximize your weight loss while you are on the HCG diet, consider the following tips to ensure you are losing as much weight as possible. Many HCG dieters are simply not satisfied with losing just a half pound, or one pound each day, and want to eliminate even more. Here are a few tips to help raise your base metabolic rate, or the energy that is created by burning off excess unwanted stored body fats. Following along, and performing these tips regularly, will help you eliminate even more weight.
HCG diet tips for losing even more weight include:
Water Consumption – Drink plenty of water and unsweetened beverages (non-sodas) to keep your body system operating optimally. Drink no less than 64 ounces of water each day, and up to 1 gallon.
Take a Pill – Each day, take a quality multivitamin pill based on your gender.
Never Shop Alone – Send someone else to the grocery store to pick up your food items. Many times HCG dieting individuals can be tempted with food by walking up and down the aisles of the supermarket and health food store.
Meditate – Meditation is a form of relaxation that can help emotional eaters overcome the frustrating sensation of constantly using food to calm down.
Super Green Supplements – Many individuals suffer from being overly acidic due to large consumptions of protein. Numerous types of green supplements offer a way to reduce acid levels by alkalizing the bloodstream.
Each Fiber – Many HCG dieting individuals start the protocol dealing with significant bowel issues. Unless you are one of the lucky ones with an extremely active excretory system, most individuals hold onto 5 to 20 pounds of fecal matter in their intestines. Eating fiber every day, by consuming the correct portion of broccoli and apples, along with whole wheat alternatives to your Melba toast or breadstick, can help you eliminate old waste material in your large intestine.
Minimize the Use of Lotions – Applying lotion all over your body is the same as drinking it. Your body will naturally absorb the fats in the oils of your lotion and stored in fat cells. Minimize its use as much as possible.
Exercise – Your workout routine does not need to be one intensive hour at the gym every day. Simply beginning an easy to perform walking routine or yoga exercise is enough to actively raise your heart rate. Perform your exercise routine for at least 15 minutes to increase your metabolic rate. It will dramatically help you lose additional weight.
Never Eat before Bedtime
To achieve as much weight loss as possible while on the protocol taking HCG drops every day, it is highly recommended to never eat anything three hours before bedtime. As your body naturally stores food during your sleep cycle, going to bed on an empty stomach will diminish any fat storage opportunity that your body is accustomed to performing.
Through proper preparation of Phase 1 and Phase 2 on the HCG diet, and taking the proper HCG drops, you can effectively lose all the weight you desire using the protocol as directed. Consider using a food scale to measure out all of your food portions in grams, along with the body-fat tape measure to keep track of how many inches you are losing every day.
