Exercising while on the HCG Diet is not recommended because you are only consuming 500 calories per day. Your body simply will not accommodate strenuous exercise.

CONCLUSION

Not every diet is one that can be trusted for safe weight loss. Pounds & Inches was written by a medical doctor and is a guide to the HCG Diet. There are a lot of mixed reviews where the HCG Diet is concerned and it has been the subject of a lot of criticism. This method may be deemed effective for weight loss because you are only allowed to have 500 calories per day. Consuming so few calories has to result in weight loss because your body is not receiving enough nourishment. There are many other safer methods of weight loss that you can use which are safer and don’t require such a restrictive calorie intake.
