We all know that the HCG Diet has been around for long time, around 60 years, so I think we can safely say no longer a fad! Yoga on the other hand is literally ancient! It did not start out as a form of exercise but a spiritual and mindful practice.
When you are on Phase 2 of the HCG Diet, the lack of ingested calories limits the types of exercise you can perform. So yoga is an ideal form of exercise for both the body and soul. Consisting of very specific mindful movements not only will it tone muscle groups, it will also decrease stress, blood pressure and your heart rate.
Success on the HCG diet is all about getting balance back into your eating habits, not just losing weight. Which is why yoga is an ideal low exertion exercise which will make a mind and body connection and get your body back into balance as well.
Remember, another great thing about the HCG Diet is that you will not lose muscle mass on the diet, you will only burn fat. So, if you perform regular yoga exercises during the course of the diet you will build up more lean muscle mass and avoid the potential of sagging skin due to the weight loss you will experience and be left with a tight and toned body to show to the world.
