The HCG Diet

The HCG Diet is actually a very simple diet program that requires the dieter to buy HCG Injections, and use them on a daily basis.

When the HCG Diet Plan was originally introduced by Dr. Simeons, the diet was restricted to only 500 calories. Keep in mind that the HCG Diet first came out over 50 years ago. Since then, the world of nutrition science moved lightyears ahead of where it was, and any healthcare professional or nutritionist knows that the 500 calorie HCG Diet is very low. While the 500 calorie HCG Diet Plan works for some, it is not as sustaingable for the HCG Diet. Today, most dieters use the 800 Calorie HCG Diet. Below, we will outline the 800 Calorie HCG Diet Plan.

Phases of the HCG Diet

The HCG Diet is categorized into 4 phases:

  • Phase 1: Loading

    During the Loading Phase the dieter will take HCG Injections each morning and eat as much as they can for two full days. This overeating period with HCG Shots will maximize fat loss hormones and prime the body to start burning fat. Glycogen stores in the liver and muscle will be filled to capacity, and the body will begin burning more calories. Carbohydrates are especially important in this phase.

  • Phase 2: Low Calorie Diet

    Phase 2 is run in rounds of 4-6 weeks, and between each round the dieter should take a 2-3 week diet break. The Diet Break is outlined in Phase 3. The length of the round should mostly be determined by the rate at which you are losing weight. If weight loss is too slow during the fourth week, it’s likely that the body needs a diet break. However, if you are still losing weight at a fast pace (3-4lbs per week), you could continue on for a total of 6 weeks.

  • Phase 3: Diet Break

    Phase 3 is a controlled diet break between the Phase 2 HCG Diet rounds which lasts 3 weeks. This break allows the body to again recognize an increase of calories, in order to increase metabolic rate. During this phase, It is recommended to have an extra serving of protein any time of the day, and add 40g serving of starchy carbohydrates toward the end of the day. This will keep insulin sensitivity high, and precent you from being hungry throughout the day. Starchy carbs include the following:

    • Potatoes – 1 medium
    • Rice – 1 cup, cooked
    • Oatmeal – 1 cup, cooked
    • Quinoa – 1 cup, cooked
    • Whole Wheat Bread – 2 slices
    • Pasta – 1 cup
  • Phase 4: Transition and Maintenance

    After a dieter has achieved their highest level of success with the HCG Diet, they will proceed to follow the Transition and Maintenance Phase. Because each person is different, we VERY strongly recomend speaking with a diet coach that specializes in the HCG Diet.

MCT Oil or Coconut Oil

MCT Oil is derived from coconut oil, and can be used for cooking and for flavoring foods on the HCG Diet. MCT Oil or Coconut Oil is recommended for the HCG Diet Protocol and with HCG Injections because of special properties that support low carbohydrate and low calorie dieting. Below are some of the benefits associated with MCT Oil or Coconut Oil when used with the HCG Diet Protocol:

  • Highest Thermic Effect of any oil – Increases fat metabolism
  • Digests fast and provides quick energy
  • Converts to ketones, and primes the body for fat loss
  • Helps to spare muscle protein
  • Keeps the dieter full and satisfied
We recomend using MCT Oil on the HCG Diet
