HCG During The Holidays Will Keep You On Track
The HCG diet has helped thousands of clients reach their weight loss goals, however it is not an easy diet due to the strict nature of the diet protocol. Many dieters choose not to lose weight with HCG during the holidays, knowing they will be unable to stick with the protocol. Unlike some diets where you can have a “cheat day” the HCG diet does not allow this because eating off protocol can cause a plateau in weight loss lasting 3-6 days and it can also interfere with resetting the hypothalamus.

Stay Fit This Year With HCG During The Holidays
If you are planning to diet on HCG during the holidays there are a few tips to help you through the temptations: Make sure to tell your family and friends that you are on a very strict diet and ask for their help in encouraging you not to eat off protocol. Familial support will go a long way and that will lessen the likelihood of encouragement to cheat. Also spread your meals out so you are snacking all day long. Drink plenty of water, recommended water intake is half your body weight in ounces of water every day- this is in addition to whatever coffee and tea you drink). If you go out to dinner to celebrate the holidays don’t be afraid to pack your own food to ensure it is HCG friendly. For Thanksgiving do not substitute turkey for your recommended protein choices. It is not HCG friendly even though it is a lean protein, eat chicken instead and when everyone has pie you can have a warm cinnamon and stevia apple which tastes just like apple pie but is still HCG friendly. Just dice up your apple, sprinkle with cinnamon and stevia and microwave for 1 minute.
