Let’s get this straight. If you are wearing a bikini on your body right now then you already have a bikini body. But if the thought of wearing one has you nervous, there is still much time to get your beach body back!
Achieving a beach body that is worth showing off is not easy. You can always hit the gym for a heavy workout but, not all of us does have all the time to spend going to gyms. Well, worry not because we’ve got you covered again. If the gym is not your thing, you can always do the HCG Diet. If you’ve done this diet before, just follow the protocol and you’ll be well. However, if you’re new to the HCG Diet, here’s what you need to know about it.
The HCG Diet and what you need to know about it
The HCG diet is a weight loss plan that has gained popularity nowadays. The plan combines the use of daily HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) injection with a very low-calorie diet, 500 calories per day. The original plan allows only about 500 calories per day but, some modification allows for 700 to 800 calories per day.
The HCG diet helps your body burn fats without losing muscle mass. When nothing else works, the HCG diet is the one that will lower the fat mass of your body. What’s good about this diet is that there is no associated risk. You don’t feel hungry despite eating only limited calories per day because you have the hormone in your system doing its job in literally melting the fats away.
Tips on how to get that beach body before summer
Now is the time to pay attention to your body to be more confident, comfortable, healthy, and look your best. Below are some tips to help you shine on your bikini during the summer.
- Reeve up your metabolism
The HCG hormone is a pro hormone that stimulates other hormones in your body to do their job including the hormone that is responsible for regulating your metabolic rate.
- Prioritize a healthy breakfast and lunch
Studies have shown people who eat their biggest meals earlier in the day lose more weight than those who eat the same number of calories later in the day. So, keep your dinners light and dig in during lunch or breakfast. For a perfect protein source, eat eggs for breakfast.
- Get moving
Stretch those muscles. When you ask your body to do more than it is used to doing, it will quickly adjust to accommodate the new demands. If you increase the level of your physical activity, your body will have to adapt by providing you with extra energy. Take note that you can only increase the level of your physical activity if you’re in the maintenance phase. During the low-calorie phase, limit your exercises to walking, jogging, swimming, or yoga only.
- Have a nutritionally balanced diet
To achieve that beach body by summer, ensure that you eat a well-balanced diet that contains fewer calories that require you to maintain your body weight.
