Plateau's happen on the HCG Diet and we can help you break them!

Almost all of our patients that undergo the HCG Diet will hit a plateau at some point during the course of the program.  It is a source of frustration as this is a weight LOSS program.  What causes an HCG diet plateau?  In a plateau period on the HCG diet, the consistent weight loss that you have been enjoying suddenly stalls. We are here to help you through the plateau's as they arise. I would go on to say that this is a normal part of the HCG Diet.

What might be the cause of an HCG Diet Plateau?

There are a few things that may be the culprit the HCG Diet plateau.  One is simply that in almost all weight loss plans the body will hit a plateau at some point.  Usually, a plateau will last for 3-6 days and then weight loss will resume.  The HCG Diet is also a very intense detoxification process and this could cause water retention which can seem like a plateau.  As the body releases fat, it is also known to hold more water and again the plateau could be due to this re-balancing in the body during the HCG diet.

What can yo do to overcome a plateau on the HCG Diet

  1. APPLE DAY - this is a wonderful way to resolve an HCG Diet plateau.  5-6 small apples from lunch one day until lunch the next.  We see the apple day be effective 90% of the time.  Apples help to rid the body of water.
  2. Go for a 20-30 minute walk within 1 hour of waking.  This will help to kick start the body into gear and get the blood moving.  We have noticed that this really seems to help move a plateau.
  3. Drink more water! The water will help to flush toxins from your body that are being released with the burning of fat on the HCG diet.
  4. Be sure you are not having the same fruit or protein twice in one day.  Vary your selections from the HCG Diet food list.
  5. Avoid beef while you are having a plateau.  We have noticed through our on data collections that beef seems to be a culprit in the stalling of weight loss on the HCG Diet with some of our patients.
  6. Make sure you are exercising on the HCG Diet. Light to moderate exercise is best daily.
  7. Get plenty of good sleep. Sleep really does help with weight loss.
