The Kettlebell Workout And the HCG Diet: Two Ways to Stay in Shape

Every year, people around the world try to increase their happiness by losing weight or staying in shape. Two ways to reach your goals follow.

The HCG Diet

A somewhat controversial solution to weight gain around your thighs, buttocks, and hips, the HCG diet is a popular way to control appetite and lose weight. This diet was first studied over 50 years ago these days it is gaining in popularity around the world. While following the complete protocol more than once may be recommended for extreme weight loss, following this diet for a short period of time can be surprisingly effective in shedding pounds.

HCG is a hormone produced in large quantities by pregnant women that greatly increases fat burning. Dieters must start taking HCG through injections or oral drops during the first phase, then greatly restrict calories for up to 40 days during phase 2. The original protocol recommends eating no more than 500 calories per day during this period. After phase 2, dieters must slowly increase their calories over 21 days to let the metabolism recover.

Kettlebell Workout

Another way to kickstart metabolism and shed pounds is starting a kettlebell workout. The kettlebell is a type of weight, shaped like a kettle (more or less), that can be a phenomenal tool in your weight loss arsenal. Using a kettlebell can build muscle all over the body. These workouts can also get your heart pumping in a very short amount of time. Experts recommend starting with no less than 12 lbs., even for women keep this guideline in mind before you buy your first kettlebell.

A kettlebell workout is so effective because muscle requires more calories to maintain than fat. That means that every pound of muscle you add will passively increase your basal metabolic rate. Body recomposition (shifting from fat to toned, sleek muscle) should follow in no time.
