Reaching your body goals can be a frustrating endeavor. Many people struggle with weight loss and gain over a large period of their lives. There are so many different types of diet and exercise plans, and they all have different rules to follow. If you’ve decided to try an HCG-based diet plan, you’ll want to know a sure-fire plan to get your desired results! Try these 3 methods to simplify your eating plan, maximize your results and get the body you’ve always dreamed of.
Make the Most of Your Fruits and Veggies
As with any low-calorie diet, your HCG diet menu will rely heavily on foods with low-calorie density. This means that the amount of calories per ounce of food is as low as possible. A good way to achieve this is by eating a large variety of vegetables. You’ll want to gear towards leafy greens, peppers, beets, broccoli, carrots and cauliflower, all of which are nutrient-rich but contain close to zero calories, meaning you can eat large amounts of them. As far as fruit is concerned, you’ll want to stick primarily with apples, citrus and berries, however, fruit should be limited slightly more than your vegetables.
Pick Proteins That Are Organic, Raw and Lean
Figuring out the best proteins to eat may seem like a tricky task, but it becomes a pretty simple process once you know what to look for. First off, you’ll want to stick with organic meats so as not to interfere with any of the hormones you might be receiving on your HCG plan. Next, you’ll be looking to buy only raw meats so that you can more easily measure the size of each of your portions. Finally, you’ll be looking for the leanest proteins you can find in order to keep your calorie-density down. Some great lean protein options include fish, skinless white-meat poultry, lean beef and pork loin.
Drink Water, Lots of It
No matter what type of diet you have, it is generally recommended to drink about 64 ounces of water per day, depending on your activity levels. However, this becomes an even more important piece of advice when trying to stick to a low-calorie diet plan. You’ll want almost all of your beverages to be water to stay hydrated, help curb your appetite and avoid taking in extra calories. If you do want to mix up your beverage options, you can try zero-calorie seltzer water, mineral water, unsweetened tea or unsweetened coffee. Most people need some variety to keep their taste buds interested. If you do want to add sweetener to a beverage, stevia is a great zero-calorie option that tastes similar to sugar.
The hardest part of any dieting plan is sticking with it. Luckily, taking the time to get prepared and having a plan can help you get to the finish line of your health and wellness goals. Try not to get discouraged and stick with your HCG eating rituals as closely as possible so that you can achieve the results that you've been looking for!
