Living Thin: Don’t take a vacation from Weight Lossby Sonja Rose on Jul. 26, 2010, under Health
My niece, Cassie Wilson, was on the HCG diet while we vacationed together in San Diego, California. Dieting on vacation can be even tougher than maintaining a 50-pound weight loss, which is what my plans were for that week. I used to come home from every vacation having to lose the five pounds I gained while on vacation; now, that doesn’t happen anymore.
Cassie, age 20, dropped over twenty pounds by using HCG(Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) drops, and following the diet plan in the HCG Weight Loss Cure Guide by Linda Prinster, and wanted to stick to her diet while on this vacation. I asked her about the HCG diet and some dieting vacation tips.
Cassie’s diet tips:
1: When you eat out, take the bun off your sandwich or burger.
2. If bread and butter are delivered to your table at the restaurant, just decline and have them take it away.
3. Order salads and/or vegetables with your meal.
4. Try to stay at a place like a condo, so you can have control of some of your meals.
5. Since drinking alcohol is sometimes part of vacationing, watch out for alcohol that has a lot of sugar in it, or, just don’t drink at all.
The HCG diet eliminates most sugars in the diet, and provides drops to place under your tongue several times a day to help process food (about 500 calories a day). Cassie is an avid label reader now, and keeps sugars to a minimum. “One of my favorite breakfast is sugar-free Jello pudding mixed with sliced peaches,” says Cassie. “I was surprised at how many foods I could eat after reading the the HCG Weight Loss Cure Guide.”
