Exercise Don’ts During HCG Diet
While it is true that a bit of moderate exercise such as walking won’t hurt you, a lot of exercise or strenuous exercise can backfire on you while on the HCG diet plan. Although, taking HCG supplements make you feel full even on a 1000 calorie per day diet, the low intake of food is not sufficient for strenuous exercise.*
While limited amount of exercise like walking is okay, intense workouts just aren’t suitable. Exercise in general increases hunger. The combination of the low calorie diet and the exercise could cause the body to go into starvation mode. It has a negative impact by lowering your stamina and many lose their commitment to the diet plan due to increased difficulty in controlling hunger pangs.
When you start exercising on an HCG diet, the body will perceive it doesn’t have enough energy sources to rely on and it will believe you are starving. This reduces the metabolic processes and severely slows down the weight loss process. This is why it is so vital that you refrain from strenuous workouts until you have achieved your set weight loss goals. In addition, you are already burning abnormal fat with the very low calories diet. Extra exercising will result in the loss of lean muscle tissues instead.*
Meanwhile, during the dieting process, limit your exercise to brief walks, stretching, and very low impact exercises. Finally, when you get back to the gym you will have better work outs than ever before. The weight loss leaves you with more energy.
