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 Schedule & Protocol

Phase 1 (P1):  
This phase lasts for 2 days. Called LOADING days. Start the drops.

10 drops under your tongue, hold for 60 seconds. FOUR times a day: when you get up in the morning, before meals and at bedtime.

Be in a CONSTANT state of feeling stuffed. Eat all the fatty and/or sugary foods as much as possible. This is actually the hardest phase for me. At first I thought it would be great to get to eat a gallon of Blue Bell ice cream, donuts, M&M's, hamburgers, all the Mexican food I wanted, etc. but I soon found out that I don't like that feeling of being constantly stuffed. Anyway, it's very important so that you won't have much hunger pains in Phase 2. So load 'em up!


Phase 2 (P2):
This phase starts on your 3rd day and lasts for at least 27 days to reset your hypothalamus gland but NO MORE than 42 days total with HcG. Otherwise you'll be immuned to HcG.

Continue drops: 10 drops under your tongue, hold for 60 seconds. FOUR times a day: when you get up in the morning, before meals and at bedtime. Your last day of drops will be on day 42. That's 6 weeks.

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING FOR 6 WEEKS! Especially when you know you'll lose 25-40 lbs!!!

500 calories per day. COUNT your calories exactly. I use My Plate (free!) on Livestrong.com.

tea, coffee, water, yerba mate or mineral water
only 1T milk is allowed in a 24 hr period
stevia is the only sweetener to use (get the pure powder from Whole Foods or Sprouts)

1. 100g extra lean bison, beef, veal, chicken, some white fish, lobster, crab or shrimp OR 4 egg whites, or 1 C natural/plain nonfat Greek yogurt. CUT OFF FAT. Get a digital scale and weigh it raw. Boil, bake, or grill! DO NOT use butters, non stick sprays or oils!
2. 1- 2 C ONE type vegetable only. Do not mix. (spinach, chicory, beet greens, lettuce, 1 tomato, 1 onion, red radishes, 1 cucumber, asparagus or cabbage)
3. 1 melba toast (or if you're gluten free, make your own OR do not eat melba while on this diet)
4. 1 medium apple, 6-9 medium strawberries, 1/2 grapefruit or 1 small orange


Seasonings: pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic powder, basil, parsley, thyme, etc.

Use Mineral oil instead of lotions that have fat in them. Also use Mineral Make Up too!

If you plateu for more than a couple of days, do an APPLE DAY: 6 apples a day with fluids all day.

Exercise isn't necessary. In fact, more than a 30 minute walk per day might make you stall but each person is different.


ON DAY 43, 44 & 45:
DO NOT TAKE HCG DROPS! Continue the 500 calorie diet.

Phase 3 (P3): 
This phase starts on day 46 and lasts 21 days/3 weeks.
NO HcG drops!
Look at my other post about what you can eat: http://myhcgdietrecipes.blogspot.com/2011/04/p3-phase-3-what-can-i-eat-during-phase.html


Find your calorie limit:
Women - this equates to 11 times your current weight
Men - 12 times your current weight
Example, for a woman whose weight is 150 lbs, multiply it by 11 and it's 1650 calories is your limit.
I'm a bigger woman, I'm 189 lbs. And even though my limit is 2079, I personally don't like to go above 1900 calories a day.

Week 1:
Work your way up to about 800-1000 calories a day. Remember no sugar, starches and low carbohydrates. Yes, you can eat fats during this time, but don't overdo it. Continue to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day if not 16 glasses (about 1 gallon). Eat 3+ meals a day. You can use butter, oil or cooking spray in your frying pan, just use it sparingly! Your protein will intake will increase to about 6-8 oz per meal or up to 600 calories per day. Your salad can now be a mixture of all your favorite things that you want in the salad, just no sugars and starches. Try to eat a little at each meal and try to get in a mid morning and mid afternoon snack.

Week 2:
Increase your daily calorie count to about 1000-1500 calories per day. Do this by adding in more veggies. Maybe some soups, cheese, peanut butter, nuts and other low carbohydrate type foods.

Week 3:
You can work your way up to your personal calorie limit. Do not allow more than a 2 lb gain! If there is, do a STEAK DAY! Skip breakfast & lunch only drinking your fluids then for dinner, eat a large steak, an apple or tomato. The next day, you should be down those extra lbs. Drink as much water as possible.

Add one carbohydrate food that you missed the most. Eat bread, pasta, potato, etc. but JUST ONE. Then the next day, stop that one and add another one. Do not eat two carb foods in the same day during week 4. Only eat one carb food per meal. Change your carbohydrate from day to day. Weigh yourself the next day and see if there are any weight changes. If so, try cutting the portion in half for the next time.

Week 5:
Combine 2 carb foods in the same day, but not at the same meal. Eat bread with a sandwich for lunch and a potato for dinner.

Week 6:
Start combining the carbs during the same meal but do this 1 day at a time. By the end of week 6 you should be eating a good healthy well rounded high fiber lower fat diet within your calorie limit without worrying about gaining weight.

You've lost so much weight, don't gain it back!
Avoid over eating.
Stay within your calorie limit.
Avoid eating both a high fat and high carb meal.
You may be able to get away with a high fat meal OR a high carb meal but high fat and high carb together are a bad combo.
