How to cheat on your HCG diet without spoiling its results?
It is a known fact that the HCG diet is quite strict, sticking to it takes lots of patience and willpower. There’s also this phenomenon called “diet boredom”. Of course, it is quite boring – not being able to eat different meals every single day while you’re following your protocol. Sooner or later people consider cheating on HCG diet and start looking for possible solutions to this problem. The key point of this diet is getting rid of extra fat – and while it works, it’s almost impossible not to think about why depriving yourself is necessary and whether it’s worth it or not.
However, cheating on HCG routine is definitely possible, for that you just need to find out how to do it safely so that its results could still be amazing. Obviously, you need to be very careful with that since not having a clue what to do increases the risks that something may go wrong and the HCG hormone won’t be as effective as it should be. But don’t fret – we have this one little tip for you that can help you avoid any possible problems if you consider cheating on this diet.
The trick is to be absolutely certain that the pattern of your weight loss is regular.
How can you tell that your weight loss pattern is regular?
Everybody has their own unique weight loss pattern. Very often people lose impressive amounts of fat during just a couple of days and the other 1-2 days they level off. There are some lucky ones who are able to get rid of extra weight every single day, but it happens rarely.
Also, it’s a common thing that major weight loss happens in the beginning of your diet and then this process gets slower and slower. Therefore, you have to wait for about 2 weeks after going on your diet if you’re going to cheat – that’s how much time is required for your body to establish its weight loss pattern.
So how does cheating on this diet work?
After figuring out your pattern, you may consider cheating. However, you should always know your limits. Enjoy one forbidden meal (which means that you have to savor it, not consume as quick as possible), wait for 1-2 days. After that, if you still notice that you keep losing weight effectively, then you can celebrate it, because this particular food won’t spoil the results of your diet.
Of course, if you notice that your HCG diet cheating becomes the reason you won’t be able to get rid of extra fat and actually start gaining it, it’s definitely because that food you’ve eaten before is not for you. Wait for at least 3-5 days so that you could stick to your usual weight loss pattern. Perform a little experiment – try eating the same meal one more time if you want to be 100% certain that it’s bad for you to consume when you’re following your diet’s protocol. Or you can try something different so that you could find what you can get away with as soon as possible.
Warning: you shouldn’t cheat with more than just 1 meal per time, because it may result in a fast weight gain that you won’t be able to control since you won’t know which meal caused it.
But before you cheat…
Before you decide that you want to try and cheat on your HCG diet, you need to be certain that you’re not in a plateau at that point, because otherwise it could only make it harder for you to get rid of extra fat.
Also, remember the goal of your HCG diet – to lose weight effectively. If you cheat far too many times, there could be a lack of desired results in the end, you’ll just waste the product that you’ve purchased (drops or injections). When you cheat, do it wisely, there’s no point in taking too many risks. Control your decisions, pay attention to the method that was explained in this article, and you will be able to avoid strict rules safely without stopping to lose extra kilograms.
