The HCG diet is a diet that has been used since the 1950’s to help patients get rid of excess fat. By using HCG injections at our office, our patients notice drastically more visible results, and they get the confidence they have lacked for years. Although the HCG diet is itself very effective, there are some other lifestyle changes you can make to get off, even more, weight. Read on to learn more.
Take the Stairs
If you are on the first floor of a building and need to go up a few floors, take the stairs! Even though an elevator or escalator is the easier option, it also won’t do your body any favors. By taking the stairs, however, you can get your heart rate up, burn extra calories, and tighten your buttocks all at once.
Go on Walks
Whether you spend your days at home or in an office, try to take a few small walks throughout the day. By moving around and getting your blood pumping, you can help to burn off calories and speed up your metabolism in the process. Additionally, the more you get your heart rate up, the healthier your heart is going to be.
What do your weekends look like? Do you spend a lot of time sitting down doing activities or watching movies? Even though relaxation is right for you, try to change your weekend activities to something more active. For instance, rather than watching movies, try getting housework or yard work done— you’d be surprised by how many calories you can burn by vacuuming or mowing the lawn.
The HCG diet is a fast, easy, and efficient way to lose some extra pounds. However, by adding in these lifestyle changes, you can ensure that you keep the pounds off and stay healthy while doing so.
