The Role of Exercise in the HCG Diet

The HCG diet is a low-calorie diet that requires daily injections of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). The hormone is believed to help suppress hunger and promote fat loss, allowing you to lose weight quickly and safely.

While exercise isn’t required on the HCG diet, it can certainly help you achieve better results. Exercise helps burn calories and build muscle, which can increase your metabolism and help you burn more fat.

Additionally, exercise can improve your overall health and well-being, reducing your risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.

However, it’s important to note that intense exercise isn’t recommended during the low-calorie phase of the HCG diet.

With such a low-calorie intake, your body may not have enough energy to support intense workouts. Instead, focus on light to moderate exercise like walking, yoga, or swimming. These activities can help improve your mood, reduce stress, and enhance your weight loss results.
