Healthy eating makes you feel great, but when you start losing weight, no matter what diet plans you follow, you may experience a temporary energy slump. This scenario goes the same for those who are following the HCG diet.
The HCG Diet
The HCG diet has gained considerable attention in recent years. This diet lets you lose weight to at least a pound each day when done correctly. Hundreds and even thousands of people have succeeded on this diet. The HCG diet utilizes the human chorionic gonadotrophin hormone, along with a restricted calorie intake of at least 500 calories per day. HCG injections is an amazing “fat burner” which makes it great for weight loss. It encourages your body burn stored fat for energy by signaling your brain.
The original protocol has evolved with time, and there is now a wide range of healthy recipes. Originally, the protocol calls for a very strict 500 calories a day. This made following the diet much more difficult than it should be. Despite the difficulties, many dieters report having lots of energy and getting stuff done. But there are times they feel a little weary and bogging down, especially during the low-calorie phase. If you are in the second phase, here are a few things that you can do to get a little energy boost.
- Take vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is one of the most important supplements for a healthy body. It helps in the formation of red blood cells, cell division, and energy metabolism. That is why the use of vitamin B12 during the HCG diet is recommended. It is very helpful if you have lots of weight to lose. Most dieters on the HCG diet use vitamin B12 to:
- Increase their energy levels brought by faster metabolism.
- Help them work out more, so they can shed a bit more.
- Lessen the side effects like headaches they would experience by taking the HCG hormone alone.
HCG and vitamin B12 can supercharge your weight loss process.
Nutritionally, vitamin B12 plays a huge role in weight loss as it makes sure that your body’s metabolism function properly and more efficiently.
- Have lean steak for your next meal
Not only is steak an excellent source of protein, but it is also an excellent source of iron. Your body needs iron to make blood cells and to transmit oxygen throughout the body. Insufficient iron can lead to low energy, irritability, headaches, and nausea.
- Drink more water
Water gives you more energy to do anything. When your body is dehydrated, you are deprived of fuel to power your body. You can tell you’re well-hydrated when your urine is light-colored and you don’t feel thirsty.
- Listen to music
Music can affect your energy level. While some music can make you feel sleepy, others can energize you or make you more attentive.
- Get the right amount of exercise
Go for a walk. This will increase the amount of oxygen flowing to your brain. Avoid doing strenuous exercises that will leave you exhausted.
