Diet plans are created in a specific way with specific standards. Diet plans are made from extensive research and there is science to back it up.
The hCG diet makes use of the hCG hormone because according to Dr. Simeons, the proponent of the said diet plan, the hCG hormone can do wonders in weight loss.
He found that by giving people a calorie-restricted diet, the hCG hormone will magically convert stored fat to energy.
The hCG diet has many phases but what most people know about the hCG diet plan is the second phase of the diet where you are heavily calorie-restricted and you are only allowed to eat about 500-800 calories per day.
Because of the diet restriction, a lot of people find themselves overeating while on the hCG diet plan because they just can’t keep up with the stringent standards of the said diet plan.
Are you struggling to hold back from overeating when you’re on the hCG diet? Do not worry because in this article, I will talk about the 4 ways you can stop overeating while you’re on the hCG diet.
- Know your current stage of hunger. Truth be told, hunger has many stages. And, when you’re in a particular stage of hunger, you will find yourself overeating instead. If you reach stage 5 or stage 6 which is the “hungry” and “starving” stage, respectively, then you’re going to have a hard time keeping up with the hCG diet plan. So, what are the things you can do to, at least, curb your hunger pangs? Well, some of the things you can do are not storing any unhealthy foods in your food storage and only keep the ones that are healthy. Furthermore, do not keep the food delivery’s number in arm’s reach as well.
- Eat Snacks. If you absolutely cannot control your hunger pangs, then eat snacks. But do not eat just any snacks, eat healthy ones. One amazing thing people have thought of to curb hunger is by eating crunchy vegetables like carrots, cucumber, zucchini, and the like. They not only curb hunger but they are also safe to snack on.
- Get out there. There is a saying “out of sight, out of mind”. If you’re absolutely hungry, why not just go for a brief walk? This way, you can focus your attention away from foods so that you will not be tempted to eat. I do have to caution that it is very tempting to visit food establishments so veer away from these like the plague.
- Drink plenty of water. Water is an essential component of our lives. In fact, our body is predominantly made up of water. Water can curb your hunger. So the next time you’re feeling hungry, drink copious amounts of water. Do not worry, water is very safe to consume since it doesn’t contain any calories at all and it will help make you feel full longer.
Overeating while on the hCG diet plan is more common than you think. Luckily, it is very easy to stop overeating while on the said diet plan.
If you’re struggling to keep up with the rigorous standards of the hCG diet plan because you always find yourself overeating, then do follow all of these to help you get by.
