As dieters experience the HCG diet with differing amounts of success, here are 5 common mistakes many dieters make that, if avoided, can help improve weight loss dramatically.
Here they are:
Mistake 1: Skipping the loading days or not properly loading on those days
It may seem counter-intuitive, but the loading days, where dieters eat lots of fatty foods, are crucial to the success of the HCG diet. Do not skip the loading days or skimp on them. The fat you consume will be beneficial to restore your fat stores later, to allow greater weight loss.
Mistake 2: Eating the same meat for lunch and dinner
By eating the same meat for both lunch and dinner, many dieters have reported a stop in weight loss. Keep a variety in your foods while on the HCG diet, and avoid eating the same kind of meat for both lunch and dinner.
Mistake 3: Not drinking enough water
It may seem like quite a bit, but it is necessary to drink a minimum of at least two quarts of water a day, while on the HCG diet. The water you drink will help your metabolism break down the fat and lose it more quickly. Skimping on the amount of water you drink can actually cause you to gain weight near the end of the HCG diet.
Mistake 4: Incorrect amount of HCG drops
Please simply follow the protocols outlined on the website. Take only 15 drops of HCG before lunch, hold for 1-2 minutes, do not eat for 30 minutes after the drops, and then repeat the same steps for dinner. Taking more drops than is prescribed can actually make your body immune to the HCG, so please stick to the prescribed amount.
Mistake 5: Engaging in strenuous exercise while on the HCG diet
Again, a straight forward protocol to follow, please make sure your exercise is very limited, nothing more than a ten minute brisk walk. While you are on the HCG diet, your body will already be burning large amounts of stored fat, so additional exercise will actually harm your body, as it will tear muscle tissue, rather than increasing the amount of fat loss.
If these 5 mistakes can be avoided you will find greater success in your weight loss, on the HCG diet.
