About my Blog

I was extremely skeptical of this diet until my reproductive endocrinologist suggested I do it since nothing else had worked to allow me to ovulate in 9 years. I started ovulating immediately after doing the 40 days of Phase 2 and got pregnant within 2 months! Not to mention I lost tons of weight too! This diet also allowed me to lose the baby weight.

HCG DIET home remedies during Phase 2 & 3

Muscle cramps: 99mg potassium twice a day. Asparagus can contribute to low potassium since it's a diuretic but spinach and chard are high potassium.

Headache: Typically an aspirin is okay. Some people have successfully used Excedrin, Advil and Tylenol without any effects on weight loss. Just make sure to avoid the ones that have the shiny coating that makes them look like candy. That coating has sugar in it. READ labels. We have successfully used both Ibuprofen and aspirin on the diet without any adverse effects. Usually, I just drink a ton more water. Make sure to drink your water!

Heartburn/bloating: Take 1 T full of ACV. It should ease you. Make sure to drink your water!

Sore throat: Gargle with warm salt water. A lot of times you're just getting dehydrated and your throat is drying out, so drink more water.

Rash: Dilute acv with water in a 1:4 ration. Use a washcloth and apply the solution directly on the rash. You may also use the Aveeno oatmeal bath soak to relieve itchiness. It is always best to leave the rash open anyways to allow it to breathe as it heals.

Constipation: Smooth Move Tea by Traditional Medicinals (found at Krogers, Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc.). The chocolate one does not work as well, fyi. A probiotic like Culturelle Digestive Health Dairy Free Probiotic Supplement can be extremely helpful too. Make sure to drink your water!
