Are you having difficulty losing weight? Does your weight loss journey feel like it’s at a standstill? Do you want to jump-start your metabolism and lose weight quickly? If yes, an HCG injection can be your answer.
What do HCG Shots do?
The HCG diet uses HCG injection in conjunction with a restricted-calorie diet to let you lose weight faster. The HCG injection is designed to help you shed pounds and inches off your body by reeving up your metabolism. It decreases your appetite and breaks down fat reserves in your body without compromising essential fat deposits near vital tissues and organs. As a result, you stay healthy and function at your best while burning and expelling fat and steadily losing weight over the long term.
The protocol also calls for a restricted calorie intake along with having your daily shot of the hormone. Even on such a minimal calorie intake, the hormone suppresses your appetite and gives you a sense of fullness and satisfaction because fat deposits are broken down.
Once you have your shot, the hormone works by communicating with your brain’s hypothalamus. This part of the brain triggers your body to release fat reserves to help boost your energy levels as well as suppress your appetite. As your body burns stored fat, you lose weight. The restricted calorie intake enhances the effects of the hormone on fat burning and speeds up weight loss.
How to accelerate your weight loss
- Do not deviate from the required calorie intake. While the original protocol is pretty strict, you should never modify your calorie intake or food choices. This way, you will not experience a weight-loss stall nor unexpectedly gain weight and you’ll be able to lose the maximum amount of weight.
- Do not over-exercise while on HCG Shots. You are not permitted to do strenuous activities or exercises while on the very low-calorie phase as strenuous exercises could mean adverse effects. Should you want to exercise, do not overdo it. Limit your exercises to walking for at least 30 minutes a day. Other light exercises allowed include swimming, jogging, and yoga. Once you are in the maintenance phase, you may gradually increase the intensity of your exercises but don’t go from zero to hero. You may start adding weight training to increase muscle mass only if you don’t have the hormones in your system. Intensifying your workout helps accelerate fat burning and weight loss even after the HCG diet.
- Make water your favorite beverage. Drinking more water each day has been shown to speed up the metabolism of your body and increase weight loss. When on a very low-calorie diet, replace all other beverages, except for coffee and tea with plain water. By having more water, you feel full and you eat less. You also have control over your food.
- Make sound sleep a priority. Keeping your weight in check is all about the little, everyday things you do. Having a good night’s sleep is scientifically proven to support weight loss and an overall lifestyle, while a poor or little sleep messes up with your metabolism and your digestive system.
