Getting plenty of fresh, pure, water every day is an absolute necessity on the HCG Diet Phase 2. As you release up to a pound a day on the low calorie HCG Phase 2 you need water to effectively flush and cleanse your body of waste products from the fat burning process and rehydrate the cells of your body. Drinking enough water (8-10 glasses a day is recommended) is an important, daily requirement for proper functioning of vital systems and organs. Still, many people simply don’t enjoy drinking plain old boring water and as a result may get dehydrated and miss out on the weight loss and health benefits of one of natures healthiest offerings.
I recommend using the purest, freshest spring water you can find. For a refreshing taste and even more health benefits, consider adding Concentrace ionic trace minerals especially if you want to remineralize and revitalize distilled water. Try my delicious Stevia Lemonade Recipe on your Phase 2. Adding fresh lemon to your water is super refreshing and you can even mix it up with the addition of fresh herbs to your HCG Diet Water like lavender, thyme, mint, and basil!
Did you know that drinking more water on the HCG Diet Phase 2 is also a great way to satisfy any occasional hunger pangs? In addition to feeling full and hydrating your body, drinking more water can help you give up and detox from unhealthy sugary or chemical laden sodas. Honestly, we need all the help we can get on Phase 2 to flush out the fat and toxins and get better weight loss results.
To encourage HCG Dieters to drink more water on the HCG Phase 2, I’ve put together a few creative and fun HCG Diet Water Recipes and fruit infusions that can help you not only drink more water but ENJOY drinking more water by giving you a fruity, zesty, alternative to ordinary water.
