If you’re struggling to lose weight, it might be time to try something new. While there are many different diet programs and plans to choose from, there’s one in particular that has caught the attention of a lot of people. The diet in question is the HCG diet.

The HCG diet works incredibly well, but it is far from easy to follow. This is largely due to the fact that it’s so low in calories. Like all things in life, the easier you can make it, the better your life will be. To help you on your HCG diet journey, we’re now going to be listing a few HCG diet-friendly kitchen accessories that all households should have.

Weighing scales

As annoying as weighing your food can be, unfortunately it is a necessary evil if you want to make your HCG diet journey a success. The second phase of the diet requires you to consume a very low amount of calories for several weeks. Most people will consume just 500 calories. Anything much higher than that will render the diet ineffective. This is where weighing your food pays off. When you weigh it, you know exactly how much you are consuming and can work out how many calories it contains. For hitting your 500-calorie daily target, a set of kitchen weighing scales are very effective.

A meal planning book

This may sound relatively simple, but it is something that makes a massive difference for people looking to lose weight. A meal planning book is ideal because it means that you can plan your meals for the week and can figure out what you need to buy in advance. This also proves useful for getting a rough idea of how many calories you’ll be consuming at the end of the week.

A slow cooker

Life can get hectic at times, and sometimes, after a long day at work, the last thing you want is to walk in and spend the next hour or two cooking a meal that you won’t particularly enjoy. Slow cookers are perfect for these scenarios as they allow you to throw everything in, switch them on, and leave them to do their thing. If you want to make a low-calorie soup, stew, broth, or curry for example, slow cookers are perfect.

Air fryer

Air fryers are currently all the rage in the world of dieting and health and fitness. These devices work incredibly well, so it’s easy to understand why people find them so appealing. They work by using incredibly hot air to cook the foods contained within, to mimic the effects of frying without actually having to fry them in fat. Air fryers use more than 80% less oil than frying, so you can cook and enjoy your favourite “fried” foods, without the fat and additional calories. Whether you’re looking to enjoy roast potatoes, chips, sausages, or anything else, an air fryer will cook them perfectly, helping you to keep your caloric intakes low.
