If you ever went through a diet or weight loss plan, you probably noticed that losing weight in the first phase of the diet is quite fast and noticeable. But, after a while, things don’t seem to work as effectively as they first did. In other words, the scale shows you that your body weight is stagnating and no matter what you do, you don’t seem to be able to go lower. Why is this happening? Well, your body is a very interesting system that can adjust well to changes but can also reach a plateau if it goes through the same routine over and over again. When you are trying to lose weight and looking to develop lean muscles, you can have the same schedule day after day, as you may not reach the desired results. Following a certain routine is recommended when you are trying to maintain your body weight and muscular tonus and not when you are trying to improve your physical shape.

Even great diets are subjected to change

Finding a diet that works well from start to the end is very difficult and complicated. Each of us reacts differently to a diet, so adjustments may be needed on the way. If certain foods work well in the case of your best friend, they may not be that great for you, out of a variety of reasons. This is why when you start a diet it is worth writing down your entire process. Create a log where you write down what you eat, when you eat, and how much you eat while monitoring your weight and the way you feel throughout the day. If you feel bloated, have cramps, dizzy, lightheaded, or lack of energy, then there must be something wrong or missing from your diet. The best way to make sure that your body has everything it needs to re-balance and have sufficient energy throughout the day is to have a diverse and healthy diet. At the moment, the HCG diet is one of the best, as it spans on a long period and has several phases that will not just help you lose weight effectively but also allow you to adjust to a healthy lifestyle. This way, it will be easier for you to maintain the ideal body weight. But, even this diet went through some updates, so now it is possible for you to find a brand new HCG diet version.

Let’s take a closer look at the HCG diet version 2.0

What makes HCG diet 2.0 better than the previous HCG diet? This is probably the first question that goes through your mind as you find out that there is something newer than the well-known HCG diet. First of all, those that took a closer look at what this new diet is offering said that it is still as effective as the first one while cutting out the part in which you may feel a bit too hungry. The HCG diet will help you adjust to a new lifestyle faster, but it can be rather difficult as your stomach may not be satisfied with the diet’s meal routine and quantity. But, this new version is said to eliminate this unpleasant aspect, without affecting the diet’s effectiveness in helping you lose weight. Those that tried it claim that it is the only diet they actually needed to get the body they dreamed about. So, it is really worth taking a look at this new version.

No diet will be able to provide outstanding results without a proper workout routine

Even if the HCG diet was improved, not even now it can promise an easy weight loss process without you going through a proper workout routine. In fact, the diet encourages physical exercises, as they increase the diet’s effectiveness and help you obtain a lean, supple, and toned body. So, whether you like it or not, you should start exercising. It is worth knowing that a workout routine will not just help you lose weight, but will also allow you to reduce stress levels, will improve your health, and, in spite of the fact that you may think the contrary, they will elevate your energy levels. The start is harder until your body gets used to the effort. But if you get past this period, you will end up enjoying this routine. So, it is important to continue, regardless of how you feel about it. There are days when you will feel tired, not in the mood to sweat, and so on, but keep in mind why are you doing this and envision you looking and feeling better. In other words, get up on your feet and start working out and you will not feel sorry for the decision you took when you will notice that you actually fit in your slim yet gorgeous clothes.

Surprise your body with your workout routine

As mentioned earlier, the body will get used to the schedule after a while, so your weight loss may slow down instead of maintaining the same pace. This happens due to the fact that the muscles already learned the drill and the exercises you are performing are not challenging them any longer. How to solve this? You need to constantly change your workout routine. Once in a while, try new exercises, training sessions, machines, and so on, so that your muscles will never know what’s next. Also, it is good to throw in your regular training routine short but intense exercises. In other words, you need to make your muscles work at high intensity out of a sudden, something that will push them and make your organism increase the number of calories it burns. High-intensity elliptical machines are, for example, the kind of exercise machines that will help you do so. You can start your usual training session and, after you’re all warmed up, to perform a high-intensity exercise. Then slow down back to your regular routine, just to increase the intensity a few minutes later. This will help you build muscle mass and burn much more calories than regular workout routines do.
