    Working out after HCG Diet
    After the HCG Diet you will have a new body to maintain - Working out is a great way to keep your weight and improve your shape. But to do that you will want to make sure you are doing it the right way.

    A few days ago a friend of mine had brought a great point to my attention...

    Should You Be Eating Before You Work Out, Or After?

    Well here is a pretty good rule to go by.

    If you are waiting more than 45 minutes to do your workout after you eat, then you should be eating a full meal.

    However, if you are on a time crunch and are going to work out less than 45 minutes after you eat … make sure to have a light low calorie protein snack to fuel your body and eat a healthy well balanced meal after you work out to help you muscles

    Examples for pre-work out snacks:

    Almonds
    Cashews
    Greek Yogurt
    Fruit
    Apples w/ peanut or almond butter
    Oatmeal
    Smoothie
    Eggs
    Cottage Cheese
    Avocado
    Cheese (babybel cheese is small and ready to go)

    Post work out meals:

    Grilled or broiled chicken or fish and veggies with seasonings and a teaspoon of olive oil
    Tuna
    Kale
    Spinach
    Sweet potato
    Salmon
    Stuffed peppers
    Tacos
    Turkey Wrap
    Cobb Salad

    Remember, these tips are not for you to use during the 500 Calorie Diet or Maintenance. This will be after you complete the diet and are in the LIFE Phase.

    What have you been eating before or after your workouts?
