hCG DietThe hCG diet is an increasingly popular weight loss solution that has helped many individuals achieve their weight goals. The hCG hormone works by stimulating the body to mobilize and burn excess fat cells for energy while the body is following a very low-calorie diet. However, similarly to many other diets, it takes effort and commitment to get results and maintain them. These tips will help you maintain your hCG diet results.

Plan Meals

Once the hCG diet is over, it is important to gradually increase the intake of complex carbohydrates and get back into a normal eating routine. Planning your meals will help avoid overeating and ensure that you will get the right amount of nutrients. Furthermore, healthy snacks between meals can help control hunger without adding many calories. Keep in mind that portion control and healthy, balanced meals are the best ways to not only keep extra pounds at bay, but to achieve overall well-being.

Stay Active

Exercising is always a great way to stay in shape regardless of lifestyle. In order to maintain a healthy weight after an hCG diet, it is recommended to exercise between 75 and 150 minutes each week depending on the workout’s intensity. While exercising three days a week is ideal, workouts can be split into as many days as necessary. Also, always include both cardio and resistance training exercises to improve your endurance and strength.

Drink Water

Hydrating can help boost brain functions, maintain the balance of bodily fluids and lower the risk of health conditions. However, it is also crucial after the hCG diet in order to maintain your results. Water may not help you lose weight but it is a great substitute to higher calorie beverages. Also, water will keep your digestive system flowing which can help boost your metabolism and inhibit hunger.
