A lot of people who have tried the protocol have struggled. It’s either they cheat a lot or quit too early. But why does this happen? Perhaps if we know the reason why we can avoid it.
I have thought of some reasons why this can happen and what can we do about it to make sure that we do well on the HCG diet.
This isn’t new for the newbies who don’t have a clear idea of what’s involved. If you’re one of those who got derailed, don’t feel bad. At first glance, it may look quite easy. And with all your excitement, knowing that you can lose a good amount of weight faster, you forget about what’s involved. It never occurs to you that it’s going to be a challenge.
Set a realistic expectation of what you want to achieve. HCG can help you lose weight faster, but it’s not all about the numbers that you see on the scale each day.
Maybe the reason why you decided to lose weight is your dealing with weight loss surgery. Perhaps you are facing with death-dealing consequences if you won’t lose weight. But now you are no longer in danger, set another goal. Your original goal may not be enough anymore as you have actually reached your initial goal already.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to shop for a size 8-10 part of the rack or an upcoming party or wedding. But what happens once the party is over? Your reason for losing weight should not just be superficial. You need to have a deeper motivator in losing weight.
Many who are overweight may have had emotional issues behind their unhealthy eating. And this unhealthy eating habit led them to their overweight state. These issues should be addressed right before going on the diet. Emotional issues are a recipe for failure. You need to be mentally ready to make long-term eating changes.
