Improve Your Cardio Fitness Score While Taking HCG Injections

Improve Fitness Score - IHCG Injections

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease and stroke are the two main causes of death globally. In the United States alone, one in three deaths is from cardiovascular diseases, stroke, and heart disease. In fact, you might personally know someone who suffers or has passed away from any of these illnesses. People with low cardiorespiratory fitness are more likely to suffer from these diseases, which is why building up cardiorespiratory fitness is of paramount importance.

That said, preventing premature cardiovascular diseases isn’t the only reason why you should improve your cardio fitness score. There are other reasons why you should work on your cardiovascular fitness, regardless of whether you are following a diet or taking HCG injections. Here are some great reasons to start building up your cardio routine.

Preventing Diabetes

Researchers conducted a study on the health of a group of people who had risk factors for type-2 diabetes (family history, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, etc.) but hadn’t developed any disease yet. Among them, one thing stood out: a markedly low VO2 max. VO2 max is the standard metric for cardiovascular fitness. According to the researchers, “This raises the possibility that decreased VO2 max is among the earliest indicators of insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes.”

Easing Anxiety

Various studies have established that regular exercise has a positive effect on anxiety. A study population diagnosed with panic disorder performed regular exercise for a span of 12 weeks and reported a significant changes not only in improvement of their cardiovascular fitness but also in the reduction of anxiety symptoms.

Combating Depression

meta-analysis has been conducted to learn whether lower levels of cardiorespiratory fitness are associated with incident depression. The study found that people with lower cardiorespiratory fitness have 75% increased risk of depression, whereas people with medium cardiorespiratory fitness only have about 23% increased risk.

Sleeping Better

According to a recent research on sleep, regularly working out can help adults fall asleep faster and sleep better and longer. People with better cardiorespiratory fitness are less likely to have sleep complaints while those who are less active are more likely to develop or suffer from insomnia.

Reducing Fats

Visceral fat is a type of fat found deep within the abdomen and is associated with health conditions like cardiovascular diseases and type-2 diabetes. Studies found that those with high cardio fitness scores tend to have lower amounts of visceral fat.

Tips on Making Each Phase of Your HCG Diet More Fun and Productive

For a lot of people, starting a diet is a difficult process. One must prepare themselves physically and mentally for some lifestyle changes in order to start their journey to a healthier lifestyle, which means giving up a few of our old habits. An HCG diet is no different. HCG injections are just part of the process, for one must also limit their calorie intake during the key phases of the HCG diet in order for it to be more effective.

With that being said, an HCG diet doesn’t have to be all blue and miserable. Any diet, really, can still be a fun and productive experience. Sure, we must enforce a strict regimen in order to achieve our fitness goals, but through the tips listed below, you can make each of the four phases of your HCG diet much more bearable as you get that amazing body you’ve been working for.

Phase 1

The first phase, also called the loading phase, is characterized by the heightened consumption of calorie-rich foods in order to form up fat stores.

Eat while you can but avoid overeating too much

For this phase, our tip is to simply enjoy eating these food items. This is, after all, the time for you to eat high-calorie food for the next phases would heavily limit consumption of these items. With that being said, make sure you’re not just consuming food without care and binging as much as possible. Take into consideration how you’ll be more successful during the next stages of your HCG diet. Also, just because you can consume many calories in this phase doesn’t mean you have to overdo it to unhealthy levels.

Phase 2

The second phase is considered to be the hardest of all the programs for this is the time you will be taking your HCG injections. This is also when your calorie intake is limited, and while HCG can help with the urge to eat too much food, applying a sudden restriction after the initial phase can be a difficult process to transition into.

Keep yourself busy

While hunger is definitely a natural response of the body saying that we need to eat, sometimes hunger can come out due to boredom. Surely, we’ve all experienced lounging around with nothing to do, going to the fridge to look for food and seeing nothing of interest, closing the fridge, then repeating until we finally cave in and eat whatever is in the fridge. In some cases, we aren’t even hungry at all but just bored. In order to avoid this from impeding on your diet, try keeping yourself busy. Read books, write some songs, take a walk outside, learn how to crochet, pick up fun hobbies, anything that can keep your mind preoccupied and away from food.

Avoid stress and negative emotions

Another reason for our sudden onset of hunger and overeating is due to stress. Whether it’s from work or from school, once faced with a highly stressful situation, we overeat to relieve it. This is bad for any diet of course, but managing stress is easier said than done. Ultimately, we recommend determining and then avoiding anything that may cause you severe stress and trigger your overeating tendencies. It also helps to approach any stressful situation with a clear mind instead of breaking down and panicking. If stress cannot be avoided, take a page from the previous tip and look for other healthier ways to deal with it aside from indulging on food.

Phase Three

The third phase is called the stabilization stage for this is the time you won’t be needing your HCG injections anymore. Still, the key part of this is watching your weight and consuming a specific diet as recommended by your doctor.

Look at the bright side of your weight

Since this is a key factor in the third phase, it could go either way. You could be happy and proud about losing 5 pounds in a week, or you could be disappointed if you barely lost a pound. It is fine to be upset about the latter development, but you must realize that losing weight is a long process that takes time and effort. Even if you did not lose much this week, you may lose some more next week. Keep an optimistic attitude and don’t focus on the negative. Rather than say, “I’m sad I didn’t lose much weight,” say “I’m proud that I lost even a little bit of weight this week!” with earnest. Your achievements, no matter how small, are stepping stones that can bring you further to your goals.

Phase Four

The final phase is called the maintenance phase for it is the stage where you maintain your current weight through a healthy diet and exercise.

Research on fun ways to exercise

Exercising doesn’t have to be restricted to going to the gym and lifting weights. While you can still do that, why not make your exercise more fun and enjoyable by looking into different fitness activities? You can try fun and rigorous sports such as wall climbing, biking, etc. Or you could even try joining your local Zumba club so you can get all of that exercise while dancing and hanging out with your new-found friends afterwards. Having an enjoyable and effective outlet in maintaining your weight can be a great way to motivate yourself during this final phase.

Each phase of the HCG diet has its miserable moments as much as it has its fun moments. Sometimes we sulk in the corner during the second phase as we continue craving for desserts and junk food and other unhealthy food, or we sometimes feel miserable at having to go to the gym to maintain that body during the final phase. But why focus on the negative? At the end of the day, our diets are what we make of it, so making sure we have healthy outlets we can use when the going gets tough in our diets is effective in keeping us motivated and happy on our journey towards physical fitness.

Be Your Own Inspiration

Once you reach this, you’re more likely to gain the confidence that will help you prepare for your long term goals.

Compliment Yourself
Aside from being your own inspiration, complimenting yourself can lift you up and further boost your confidence. If you accomplished your meal plan, did your workout, and reached your goal, always tell yourself. “I did it! Good job, self!”

Finding the confidence in achieving your health goals comes in sticking to your principles, helping others and facing the challenges with your head up high. Stay disciplined and always believe in yourself. Good luck!

Trying to be healthy at work can be difficult because you spend most of the time sitting in front of your desk. Also, uncontrollable stress levels can interfere the effects of HCG shots. But your hectic work schedule can be easily manageable if you:

 

Learn to manage stress

Stress eating is inevitable, especially if you have a demanding job. Juggling several roles and responsibilities can be exhaustive, both physically and emotionally, which is nothing to be worried about. However, in order to become a productive worker, you must learn how to properly manage your stress without resorting to unhealthy habits such as stress eating, and the like. One way to beat stress is to do things you enjoy every once a while, such as reading a good book, gardening or just discovering a new hobby you can use as a breather.

 

Eat breakfast

You may be expected to arrive to work on time, but that does not mean that you have skip the most important meal of the day. Get yourself energized for the day and avoid morning hunger by having a big healthy breakfast before going to work. Porridge and oatmeal topped with fresh fruits are great slow energy releasing foods. But if you’re on the go, a bar of homemade granola can do the trick.

 

Keep overtime to a minimum

Sometimes in our pursuit to get the job done, we tend to put our health into second priority. You may not be aware of it until you reach a certain stress level wherein your immune system gets impaired, having a hard time getting a sound sleep, and having difficulty to concentrate.

 

The key factor to maintaining good health, even in the most demanding and stressful environment, is self awareness. Avoid getting burned out by having a clear differentiation of when to take breaks and when to go on a vacation. Stress interferes with the weight loss process and counteracts the slimming effects of your HCG shots, making your body put on weight.

Being hardworking does not mean that you have to sacrifice your health.
