Losing weight on the HCG Diet is tough enough, but keeping them off long-term is much difficult. To increase your chances of maintaining your weight after losing then, plan for a transitional phase after you’ve reached your goal weight. Make gradual changes to your lifestyle, keeping an eye on the scale as sudden changes are more likely to result in weight gain. Exercise what you have learned during the HCG diet and make sure that you can maintain them long-term. Turn your healthy eating habits into a healthy lifestyle habit to prevent weight gain.
Here are some best maintenance plans to consider after the HCG Diet
A low-carb diet works really well for HCG dieters since their bodies are quite adjusted to low-calorie intake already. A low-carb diet combined with clean eating can help you effortlessly maintain your weight for good after the HCG Diet.
Ditch the sugary, starchy, and fatty foods. Watch your eating habits. Stay away from processed foods, and you will surely keep the weight off long-term. Eat lots of fruits and veggies, healthy fats, and foods high in fiber. Take some probiotic supplements, so you’ll have a happy, healthy gut.
Cleansing your body can naturally help you maintain your weight. It works similarly with detox and involves strict dietary modification. Cleansing focuses on removing unhealthy foods and replacing them with nutrient-dense, whole foods. Lemon water, tea, detox juice, and herbal cleanse work all work well. Detox is typically brief and involves very strict regimens that include laxatives, fasting, and taking herbal supplements.
A gluten-free diet involves removing foods that contain protein gluten including barley, wheat, and whey. Many dieters found that even though they do not have Celiac disease, they have a sensitivity to it. And this sensitivity causes bloating, cravings, constipation, and difficulty keeping the weight off. Going gluten-free diet is very effective in keeping the weight off long-term.
A popular version of this includes vegetarian, vegans, and a more flexible plant-based diet called flexitarian. A plant-based diet typically involves eliminating all meat, fish, and poultry. Some even avoid dairy products and eggs. It’s effective for weight loss and in maintaining weight after losing them.
The Paleo diet
In a Paleo diet, you eat whole foods, vegetables, fruits, the leanest meat and restrict the consumption of grains, processed foods, sugar, and dairy product. Dieters who follow the Paleo plan lose weight and have reduced harmful belly fats. Following the Paleo plan may also reduce the risk of heart diseases and factors like high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
In a low-fat diet, you restrict fat intake which can aid in weight loss. The only downside to this is that restricting too much fat for a long time can lead to problems like hormone production, cell health, and nutrient absorption.
