Bad Habits that Stops You from Losing Weight on the HCG Diet

Old habits can be hard to break and everyone has them. We all pass by drive-thru for a breakfast or lunch. We all enjoy a midnight snack while watching our favorite late-night show. Nobody is perfect. I’ve been there too.

There are good habits during weight loss but there are also habits that prevent you from losing weight. You might not be aware that you have them but your bad habits are preventing you from attaining your goal. No matter how hard you try you don’t seem to be able to lose weight. Luckily, you can change your bad habits though it can take extra effort it’s possible with the HCG Diet.

The HCG Diet can effectively make you lose abnormal fats when you religiously follow the protocol. However, this diet is very sensitive to every action that even the slightest mistake can greatly affect your overall results. It’s a fast weight loss program proven to help obese people lose weight without spending too much money and energy. It works naturally in the body in burning all those unhealthy stored fats without burning your muscles. However, no matter how fast this diet works, your weight loss will halt due to many reasons and one of them is your bad habits.

What are the bad habits that prevent you from losing weight on the HCG Diet?

Having an unhealthy lifestyle can be a big disaster especially if you’re on the diet. Unhealthy lifestyle includes:

  1. Overeating– can sabotage your weight loss. The reason why you are cutting down on your calories is to help your body shift from your old habits.

What to do:

Break this habit by counting your calories. Eat only the right kind and the right amount of foods. Eat your foods at a slower pace to give time to your brain to process the signal of fullness.

  1. Eating too quickly– can often lead to overeating and weight gains. Remember that it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to process the signal of fullness. So, if you eat a quick meal for only 5 minutes, you may still be hungry and would react by having another portion or a dessert which can lead to weight gain.

What to do:

Slow down your eating pace. See to it that you chew your foods well so you won’t have indigestion. Drink enough water too.

  1. Skipping breakfast- Morning breakfast is busy and fast-paced for many dieters and skipping breakfast seems an easy way to save time. However, your body needs fuel in the morning to kick start your metabolism even on the HCG Diet.

What to do:

Make a replacement shake if time is your issue. Replacement shakes are quick, easy and tasty. It’s loaded with the necessary nutrients to help kick-start your metabolism. It’s full of antioxidants too. 

  1. Eating too much junk food ­–Junk foods which include all sort of processed foods are loaded with chemicals. When you habitually eat them your liver is forced to work harder than usual to remove all the toxins you are ingesting. Since your liver is very busy handling over the extra workload, it won’t be very effective enough to do its other job like regulating your body’s metabolism. Your liver won’t be able to process as many calories as it can lead you to store extra fats.

What to do:

Break this habit by eating healthy and unprocessed foods. Stay away from junk food that’s making you fat.

  1. Missing meals– Contrary to what many people think, eating less will not lead to weight loss. Failing to eat an adequate amount of foods even on the HCG Diet will cause your body to slow down its metabolism. Your body will think it’s going into a starvation mode. So, when it’s time for you to eat, your body will store most of it as fats in preparation for the starvation mode.

What to do:

Break the habit by spacing your meal evenly out into 5 or 6 smaller meals. As much as possible, stick to a low-calorie diet that will leave your body satisfied after a meal time.

  1. Not getting enough sleep- Not getting enough sleep can lead to a series of events that aren’t conducive to losing weight. Here are the reasons why:
  1. It’s harder for the body to process carbohydrates which will raise the blood sugar and insulin levels. The excess sugar and insulin can lead to an increased fat storage especially around your waist.
  2. It will leave you tired all day which will likely affect your judgment and opt for a quick burst of energy from sugary foods over healthier ones.

What to do:

Break this habit by eating active during the day and make sure you’re tired by night so you can go to bed earlier. Get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. 

  1. Consuming too much alcohol-Too much consumption of alcohol can cause a weight-loss stall. Alcoholic beverages like wines and beers are loaded with calories. This means that it’s the last thing that you want to grab when trying to lose weight. A can of beer typically contains 150 calories. Alcoholic beverages have more calories than carbohydrates or proteins. So, there’s no such thing as a low-calorie alcohol.

What to do:

Break this habit by drinking less and avoiding places where alcohol is the main offering.

  1. Emotional eating– Anger, sadness, frustrated and loneliness are just a few of the many emotions that make you turn to foods for comfort. However, filling the void with foods won’t last. You’ll eventually find yourself back to where you are and soon begin to the vicious cycle again. Emotional eating is a bad habit that you should break to achieve maximum weight loss during the HCG Diet.

What to do:

Break this habit by using other coping strategies when emotions start to take over. Be active by going for a walk, cleaning the house, call a friend or try some yoga.

  1. Forgetting your diet at restaurants– Sometimes you forget that you are on a diet when you are at your favorite restaurant or maybe you temporarily ignore them. Just because you are at a restaurant doesn’t mean that you can pick the naughtiest choice in the menu.

What to do:

Break this habit by making a wise decision when it comes in choosing restaurant. As much as possible, check their menu online first before going. Choose the one that fits for HCG Diet and when you are there, never order for a menu unplanned so you won’t get derailed from your diet.

When you recognize your bad habit it would be easier for you to break them. As the saying goes,” it only takes 21 days to break a habit”.

    I’ll be needing to eat in a restaurant from time to time because I have clients to meet and discuss projects. What could I order to keep myself from straying too far from the protocol?

    You can order grilled chicken breast or lean meat steak and just inform the kitchen that you would prefer that your meat will not be glazed with butter or oil, but just plain seasonings. You can also opt for a salad but skip the mayonnaise or dressings.
