Phases of the HCG Diet Protocol
Phase 1 - Loading
Days 1 and 2 are considered “Loading Days” (during these days you will eat ALL YOU CAN of fatty foods to load up your body's normal fat stores; not doing this is a mistake!) HCG injections or drops are given both days, but the very low calorie diet (DIET) will not start until Day 3. During the load phase you can eat as much high fat and rich foods as you want.It is strongly encouraged to eat healthy rich nutrient dense foods during this phase rater than low quality refined sugar items. Attempting to skip the load days may make cause you to feel hungry during the DIET and may stall weight loss.
We will encourage you to supplement your DIET with IV Nutrients which are available in our office at an additional cost.
Phase 2 - Weight Loss
In Phase 2, you will begin the DIET. However keep in mind the HCG is now triggering the release of 2000 stored fat calories as available food for your body so you are receiving adequate nourishment and will not feel hungry. As part of your daily routine you will need to weigh your food and your self every day. All lotions and make up that contain oils must be avoided. Recommendation will be made for body lotions and personal care products. Our medically trained staff will be available to monitor your weight loss progress and answer any questions you may have at any time during the program.
Phase 3 - Lock In
After your last injection you must continue with the DIET for 3 days until the HCG is out of your system. On day 4, you will begin a 3 week program which involves a starch free and sugar free eating plan. This is the most important part of our program! Remember, you have just lost the weight you have wanted to and now we want to help you keep the weight off permanently! This phase is extremely important to reset your hypothalamus gland to your new weight. Oral supplementation is highly recommended through this phase and will need to be ordered separately.
Phase 4 - Maintenance
Now you will slowly add back in healthy carbohydrates and unrefined sugars. If you have completed phase 3 properly, you will be able eat normally and maintain your weight loss.
It is advisable to have follow-up lab work a few months after you start this final phase. You will be amazed at how many conditions will be corrected by following this protocol. Recommended oral supplementation is available during this phase at an additional cost.
