As we get older, our metabolism starts to slow and the way we used to eat and drink no longer goes unnoticed around the waistline. Finding a diet that can actually boost your metabolism and help you lose weight is the ultimate dream. The HCG Diet has gotten quite a bit of publicity in recent years, and here at Novopelle Med Spa, we are proud to offer the HCG Diet in our Dallas, Houston, and Austin locations. The HCG Diet may be what you’ve been looking for in order to lose weight and boost your metabolism.
Boosting Your Metabolism With HCG
HCG is a hormone that is produced by both men and women, but it is produced in higher quantities in women when they are pregnant. The HCG hormone sends a signal to your brain that you are full, even after eating very few calories, and it encourages your body to use the fat that you already have stored as energy. Some people may be worried that using the HCG hormone will end up slowing down their metabolism after the diet is over due to the low amount of calories you consume on the diet. While we can’t be sure how the HCG hormone will affect everyone, as individual bodies vary so much from person to person, the HCG Diet is so low in calories because the hormone helps to promote the feeling of being full, thus needing fewer calories and allowing your body to use the stored fat that it already has as fuel. Once the diet is complete and you are no longer receiving HCG injections, your body should go back to expecting a normal 1,500-2,500 calorie daily diet without impacting your metabolism. The HCG Diet may even improve your metabolism, as you will begin to burn the stored fat that is already in your body, and not have to rely on the food you eat to create the energy your body needs.
Get An Extra Boost For Your Metabolism
In order to get an extra boost in your metabolism, it is recommended that you drink coffee, tea, and water and that you consume high-protein foods. The good news is the HCG Diet already suggests these foods and drinks as a part of your 500 calories a day while you’re undergoing your HCG injections. Green tea has been linked with increased metabolism and is a healthy choice both on and off the HCG Diet. However, in order to really boost your metabolism and get the most out of your diet, try adding in some interval training that includes 30-60 seconds of high impact movement such as jumping jacks, high knees, or burpees, followed by 30-60 seconds of rest for about five to ten minutes per day (depending on your fitness level), and you may begin to get an extra boost in your metabolism and your energy level!
