So, it has been a while since you completed phase 4. Maybe you’ve lost 20 or 30 pounds during your previous rounds. However, because of some events, you have gone outside your comfort zone and your weight has changed.
Now, you can always do another round of HCG diet, but you opt not to and tried a different natural approach.
If you find yourself in this kind of situation, here’s what you need to do:
If you find that the scale is slowly tipping up, or your clothes barely fit you, do not panic. If you have gained more than 10 pounds after your last HCG diet, you can think of doing another short round. HCG injection is not just effective, but also safe since it’s produced by the placenta of pregnant women. If it’s lesser than 10 pounds, why not try losing the weight gained using a different approach.
Sometimes, making changes to your diet can be perceived as the beginning of another period of dieting where you are deprived once again for an extended time. It doesn’t have to be that way all the time. Making changes to your diet can be done differently. You just have to make a plan. Having a plan can make it easier for you to pass up whatever items are not on the plan. Without a plan, it’s way too easy to grab anything.
Dairy products don’t cause weight gain, but not all dairy is equal in terms of health benefits. Some are less healthy and easier to overeat than others, which can lead to weight gain. The dairy itself won’t make you fat, but it’s the type and how you eat it. So, cutting out on dairy even for just a few days can make you lose weight and feel better.
One of the easiest corrections to make is to continue eating the same way you eat during phase 3. To do this, include fruits, veggies, protein, and carbs, but stay away from sugar for a week or two. A phase 3 eating plan can be incredibly helpful for getting back to clean eating.
Most diet plans focus on what you eat, but intermittent fasting emphasizes when you eat. During intermittent fasting, you only eat during a specific time. Eating just one meal every couple of days or fasting for a particular number of hours can help your body burn fat. Several studies have shown benefits for health as well. Before you do intermittent fasting, listen to yourself, as every person’s body is different.
Although exercise is not necessary to lose weight, it can speed up the process. Weight lifting is especially beneficial.
When you lift weights, you burn a lot of calories and keep your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight. Make weight training one of your weekly routines.
