Stress is not always easy to handle especially when on the HCG Diet. High levels of stress can interfere with the process of how the hormone metabolizes the abnormal fats. It counteracts the effects of the HCG. As a result, the body starts to put on weight.
Stress can actually have a totally opposite effect on your weight. For some, stress causes weight loss but it’s not good at all. This is unhealthy and it can cause weakness and dehydration. The overall health is negatively affected. Other tend to gain weight due to the bouts of “comfort” eating or also known as stress eating. This is really a BIG NO if you are on the HCG diet. Stress eating contributes to the build-up of excess calories. And when you’re done with your stress eating it’ll probably be too late for you to regret because you’re months of dieting efforts have all been wasted.
From a study, it had been determined that it’s also the hypothalamus that is responsible for weight gain when you are consumed by stress and anxiety. It’s the very same gland that you are trying to reset with the HCG hormone. It is very vital therefore that you need to keep your stress level low when on the HCG diet.
The best thing to do obviously is to avoid stress though it’s not the easiest thing to do. That is why a lot of dieters are struggling with their weight loss and diet that does not seem to work.
