Weighing and Measuring Your Progress Properly

As you lose weight on the HCG Diet, you’ll want to track your progress. Part of tracking your progress is weighing and measuring properly. It’s really important to remain consistent with your weighing and measuring so you’re getting accurate results.

Weighing and Measuring Properly

Weighing yourself is pretty simple. The most important thing to remember is to be consistent. On the HCG Diet, you’re supposed to weigh everyday. We recommend using a quality digital scale so it’s easy to know the exact reading. Only weigh in the morning after you’ve used the restroom and before you’ve eaten anything. Try to do this at the same time each day. When you step on the scale keep your chin up, stand up straight, keep your hands at your sides, exhale look down at the number. Stick to this process and you’ll get consistent numbers each morning. Don’t forget to write your weight down after you get off the scale!

Now, when it comes to measuring it’s equally important to be consistent, but for measuring it’s a little more difficult. We’ll walk you through each measurement you should be doing on the HCG Diet so you are confident in results you are seeing. For best results try to measure in front of a mirror so you’re able to see whether or not the tape is level, even the slightest variation in method can make it seem like you gained/lost inches that you might not have.

Bust – Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Make sure that it’s level around your body.

Arms – Arms are kind of tricky, you’ll want to wrap the measuring tape around the largest part of you arm. Don’t pull the tape tight, it should just lightly wrap around your skin. Be sure you are measuring in the same spot each time. If it helps you can measure up to your starting point from your elbow. That way you know how man inches up your arm you need to start measuring.

Waist – Your waist is located between your hip bones and the bottom of your rib cage. Just to simplify, measure your waist by wrapping the tape measure around your belly button. Once again, check to make sure it’s level around your body. It shouldn’t fit tight enough that it digs into your skin, but you don’t want it so loose that it’s moving around.

Hips – Locate your hip bones and wrap the tape measure level around them.

Thighs – Stand up straight with your feet flat on the floor and shoulder width about. Wrap the measuring tape around the largest part of your thigh. Don’t wrap it too tightly.

Be sure and write all of your results down! Now that you are weighing and measuring properly, you’ll be able to see your incredible results!
