When winter rolls around, the last thing most people want to do is hit the gym. We understand entirely: the days are shorter, it’s colder outside, and it just sounds much more enjoyable to go home and curl up in front of the television. However, this more sedentary lifestyle choice combined with holiday eating and parties can leave the average American feeling heavy, out of shape, and overweight. Instead of waiting until New Years to commit to losing weight, why not start today? While winter isn’t the most appealing time to lose weight, you could see dramatic results when you choose a new way to shed those unwanted pounds for good: hCG diet shots.
Today, we are going to share more about these diet shots and how they can help you, as well as some of the top reasons and ways to tackle your weight loss plans in the wintertime.
Why Choose Winter
First of all, winter is a prime time to work on your weight loss simply because it’s when others tend to fall off the wagon. There is a reason that January is the biggest month for people to sign up for a gym membership, and that’s because everyone decides they want to lose weight for the new year. Get ahead of the curve and make the commitment to improving your body today. Making conscious decisions about your weight and your dietary choices right now can keep you from binging and gaining that holiday weight later on.
Second, winter is cold. Obviously, you don’t need us to tell you that, but did you know that the cold can help you shed unwanted pounds? Studies have shown that shivering for 10-15 minutes had the same effects of an hour of moderate exercise. This is because the hormone, irisin, had its levels increase. Irisin is “produced by muscle and stimulates the conversion of energy-storing white fat into energy-burning brown fat.” Brown fat burns much faster than white fat, meaning that we are more likely to lose weight when our bodies hold more brown fat.
A Little Cold is Good
Believe it or not, our bodies are designed to handle the cold and varying temperatures. We store extra weight to be burned for warmth in the wintertime. When we stay in perfectly temperate conditions throughout the wintertime, our bodies do not have to work as hard to keep us comfortable. This allows us to pack on extra pounds and keep our scale numbers rising. Yikes! Instead of keeping the temperature in your home the same throughout the day and night, try lowering it during the night time. Your body will cool as you sleep, which can actually help you lose weight.
Getting Started with hCG Diet Shots
So where do hCG diet shots come into play? Combining this perfect time of year with hCG shots and the calorie-restricted diet that comes along with could be the ideal combination to hit the weight loss goals you’ve been aiming for. The hCG hormone is present in pregnant women to help sustain the baby’s growth. When we eat a low-calorie diet, one that surely is not sustainable on its own, and combine it with hCG diet shots, these shots help our bodies keep our energy levels and focus levels high. A restricted diet without this assistance can lead to fatigue and foggy brain function. But with the hCG shots, your body will begin taking energy from your stored fat without hesitation or any impairment to your cognitive function.
