HCG Diet Program



  • The HCG diet involves caloric restrictions and regular injections of the HCG hormone. The HCG hormone occurs naturally in pregnant women.  Proponents of the diet say the HCG hormone helps the body lose weight quickly.  When the HCG hormone enters the body it helps reduce muscle loss, suppress hunger and it helps with other hormonal imbalances. 



  • You will follow a 750 calorie diet meal plan during the main phase.  The low calorie diet ensures you lose weight quickly.  The HCG meal plan includes two meals per day.  You will start your day with coffee or tea in unlimited quantities for breakfast.  You can use stevia, saccharin as sweeteners and a single tablespoon of milk.  Your lunch and dinner will be at normal times.  You will also get two snacks during the day. All meals/snacks are chosen from a list of specific foods that do not vary throughout duration of the diet.



  • While on the 750 calorie HCG plan your meal choices are limited.  For lunch and dinner you can chose one 100 gram serving of chicken breast, lobster, shrimp, veal, beef, crab, or fresh white fish.  Remove all visible fat before you cook the meat.  The 100 grams refers to the raw weight of the meat.  You can also choose one vegetable from the following list:  asparagus, celery, green salad, spinach, cabbage, chard, red radishes, chicory, beet-greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, fennel, and onions.  I addition, you can have one Melba toast or a single breadstick.  To close out the meal, you can chose from an apple, a half of grapefruit, a handful of strawberries or an orange.  If you like, you can eat it for breadstick or the fruit as a snack between meals.  The meal options stay the same until you finish the main phase of the diet.



  • In addition to the regular lunch and dinner foods, the HCG meal plan allows you to use the juice of one lemon each day.  You can use almost any type of spice, garlic, and vinegar but you MAY NOT use butter, oil or any type of dressing.  You can drink water, coffee, and tea in any quantity during the day.  You should aim for approximately 2 liters of fluid each day.



  • Since the HCG diet is very low calorie, excellent recipes are crucial for success.  For lunch you might have an apple chicken salad with cooked chicken diced apple, diced celery, mixed with lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and stevia to taste. For dinner you could have roasted white fish paired with pickles made from cucumbers, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice and salt.  If you have a problem finding recipes that add flavor to your meat and vegetables, try making HCG-friendly sauces and marinades.  For a sauce that makes a dressing or a marinade, mix fresh dill, lemon juice, vinegar, Old Bay seasoning, and salt.  Or, make your on mustard using mustard powder, garlic powder, onion powder, ginger, vinegar, water, lemon juice and stevia.




  • There are four phases to the HCG diet with a cleanse or detox.  Although it is not necessary or required, a cleanse diet can help prepare your body and mind for the HCG diet phases.  Any type of cleanse will works. If you want an extreme detox, you can choose a candida cleanse or a colon cleanse.  For a less extreme option, you can spend a week eliminating all processed food from your diet.



  • During the first phase of the HCG diet, you will increase your caloric and fat intakes for two days, focusing on high fat foods.  At the same time you will take HCG injections.  The goal of the first phase is to interfere with the way the body stores fat.  The hcg will prevent fat from accumulating in your body, which begins the process of lipid mobilization.



  • On the third day of the HCG diet, you will begin the second phase.  At this point you will drop you diet down to the 750 calorie regimen, eating only the foods outlined in our handout.  You will also continue with the HCG injections.  The second phase can be difficult especially in the beginning.  The length of this phase depends on how much weight you have to lose.  At a minimum, you should stick with the plan through 23 doses of HCG.  This lower limit is for people who need to lose 15 of fewer pounds.  At the maximum you can stay in this phase until you reach 40 doses of HCG.  After finishing the HCG you must remain on the 750 calorie diet for 3 days.



  • During the third phase of the HCG diet, which lasts three to four weeks, you will maintain your new weight.  Some variations of the HCG diet advise you to avoid starches and sugars during the third phase; others require that you avoid milk and excessive fat.  After a minimum of twenty three days you can begin a new round of HCG.  Otherwise you will move to the last phase.



  • The final phase of the HCG diet involves maintaining your weight.  You will need to eat enough calories to prevent further weight loss or gain. Your calorie intake will usually fall between 1500-2500 calories per day;  Your doctor can help determine the ideal intake level.  You do not have to follow the HCG diet meal plan but it is safest to eat clean, unprocessed foods while you maintain your weight.

Why it is important to weigh your food instead of trying to eyeball portions!
