Bacteriostatic Water and its Use in HCG

Bacteriostatic Water Vials

What is Bacteriostatic Water?

Chances are if you are about to begin your journey with the HCG Diet Protocol you may be wondering what bacteriostatic water is, and why it is important to incorporate it into the HCG hormone delivery.

Simply put, bacteriostatic water is water specially cleaned or filtered for the purpose of medical use. Completely sterile, it contains 0.9% Benzyl alcohol designed to prevent the formation of microbes developing in what is basically a carrier solution for the administration of the injectable hormone, HCG.

It goes without saying that injecting any substance using contaminated water solution will lead to major medical problems. Purchasing your bacteriostatic water from a reputable online source, equipped with updated information, such as HCG Supplies will ensure you are injecting a clean solution.

What Does it Look Like?

Typically arriving in a flip-top plastic vial, bacteriostatic water is not pressurized. With a typical shelf life around 1 year to 18 months unopened; it should be immediately refrigerated after opening, with the remainder discarded after 28 days.

Can I Use Sterile Water instead of Bacteriostatic Water for HCG?

While sterile water can be great for some things, bacteriostatic water is the most recommended means with which to transport the hormone into your system. Sterile water is for mixing a single dose to be injected all at once, since it has no bacteriostatic properties. Bacteriostatic water can be used to mix a multi-dose mixture to be used for up to 28 days.

Safety First

Most likely, you will be administering your HCG hormone shots at home in a nonclinical environment. Sterile water, while on the surface, should suffice; it is only sterile until a foreign micro-organism is introduced into the solution.

In plain terms, we cannot see micro-organisms with the naked eye. The cat dander, the dust mites in the bedroom from dog hair. That sneezed into tissue your six-year-old left on the kitchen table. All the daily activities and incidentals that we don’t even think about that take place at home, would never take place in a doctor’s office.

So, at home, sterile water is subjected to too much risk of contamination. Bacteriostatic water, however, containing benzyl alcohol makes for a better choice, especially for use at home when using a mixture intended for multiple injections.

Bacteriostatic Water Close Up

Cleaned and sterilized, any microrganisms are removed from the water, rendering it sterile. At this point, the 0.9% blending of benzyl alcohol is introduced, Thus completely sanitizing the water and protecting it from the growth of bacteria.

Administering the Bacteriostatic Water:

With an alcohol pad, wipe the rubber stopper on the empty mixing vial, the HCG medication vial, and the Bacteriostatic Water vial. Check to make certain any use-by dates are still good on both the HCG and the Bacteriostatic Water.

If in any doubt, DO NOT USE!

Next, slowly draw back the plunger on the mixing syringe until the volume of air drawn into the mixing syringe rises to the volume of water to be withdrawn from the Bacteriostatic Water vial.

Inserting the mixing needle into the top of the Bacteriostatic Water vial, introduce the air from the mixing syringe into the Bacteriostatic Water vial. Finally, withdraw the mixing needle from the Bacteriostatic Water vial.

Next, with the empty mixing vial, insert the mixing needle, you can now withdraw the amount of equivalent air to the measure of Bacteriostatic Water you wish to infuse into the empty mixing vial. This may sound complicated at first, however, the experience will teach you what the correct amounts look like. Additionally, you should also check out further how-to information available on your HCG Supplies website.

Now you are ready to withdraw the mixing needle from the empty mixing vial. Both vials should now be pressurized and arranged to exchange the liquids more effectively.

Preparing for the Injection

Utilizing the mixing syringe, insert the mixing needle into the Bacteriostatic Water vial and withdraw the intended volume of Bacteriostatic Water. Withdraw the mixing needle.

Insert the mixing needle into the HCG medication vial. Infuse a limited quantity of Bacteriostatic Water to reconstitute the powdered HCG. It doesn’t make a difference precisely the amount Bacteriostatic Water that you infuse here – 0.5 ml is fine. The powder dissolve right away.

Invert the HCG medication vial and withdraw every drop of liquid into the syringe. In order to recover the majority of HCG hormone into the syringe, make sure the tip of the needle is practically even with the rubber stopper. Withdraw the mixing needle.

Insert the mixing needle into the vacant mixing vial and infuse the majority of the liquid into the unfilled mixing vial. Withdraw the mixing needle. Presently your solution is blended for injections.

Discard all waste in an appropriate waste repository, notably a receptacle suitable for sharps, or needles. Keep away from all pets and children. Do not reuse needles. Discard the Bacteriostatic Water and the blended solution around 28 days later.

Each time you do an injection, make a point to clean the top of the mixing vial and the injection site with an alcohol pad. Utilizing another injection syringe each time you inject will help maintain a sterile and safe injection.

Draw back the plunger on your injection syringe until the volume of air approaches the volume of the solution you intend to inject. Insert the needle into the mixing vial and inject the air into the mixing vial. Invert the mixing vial and withdraw the volume of solution that you intend to inject. Withdraw the needle from the mixing vial. Hold the needle pointing upward and tap on the syringe barrel until any air bubbles have ascended to the top of the syringe. Push on the plunger to oust all air from the syringe. At this point, you are prepared to inject.

Again, discard all waste in the appropriate container, preferably one suitable to house sharps.

Performing this procedure correctly and in the most sanitary way possible is important for the success of the HCG Diet Protocol. Speaking with your primary care physician, you may be able to arrange daily visits to your doctor for the injections to be professionally administered. Alternatively, if you feel comfortable performing the injections yourself, you may do so. Making sure, instructions are meticulously followed can help you achieve a successful outcome.

HCG Diet Phase Four. Welcome to Food!

Congratulations! You made it. You absolutely did it. What a journey it has been. From the early days of Phase One, when, in between bites of anything you wanted, you wondered what Phase Two would be like. To the re-imagining of yourself during Phase Three when you carefully began redesigning your eating habits toward a more permanent, balanced lifestyle.

Here you are at Phase Four of your HCG Diet Protocol. Awesome.

But wait! What exactly is Phase Four? Does this mean there are more restrictions? Do I have to up my intake of the HGC hormone? Do I have to eat a plate full of weird looking green pasta from a health shop?

No. Because Phase Four is all about re-entering the so called real world of food, and learning to make educated, healthy choices during normal dining experiences with friends and family.

Getting Out Again

During the three previous phases, chances are, you might have stayed home a bit more. Particularly if this was your first time cycling through the diet plan. Outside of any lunch breaks with your co-workers, you might have felt a bit odd sitting in a restaurant, turning down just about everything on the menu, much to the annoyance of family and friends.

Phase Three meant you were able to start re-introducing certain foods back into your diet, while watching for carb, dairy, and sugar sensitivities, their reaction on your weight, and overall wellbeing. Phase Three was also about slowly rebuilding your daily caloric intake, finally bringing you to around 1,500 calories per day depending on the demands of your lifestyle; highly physical or fairly sedentary.

Think of Phase Four as the phase without an end. This is how you eat going forward. Essentially, now you are responsible for maintaining a healthy weight and to continue figuring out what meals are best going to help you stay on goal.

For some dieters, this can seem intimidating. The previous three phases offered the support of a structure. No matter how many times we might have railed against the caloric restriction, or the Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) shots, now we are standing out there alone; we appreciate the structure we once had.

Maintenance Level

No diet comes without maintenance. The HCG Diet Protocol helped get you to your goal. The goal however, is not to remain at Phase Three or Phase Two forever. It is important to continue making the healthy choices at the right portions similar to the final week of Phase Three where you reached almost 2,000 calories per day.

Fail to maintain and you could be pulling those fat jeans back out of the closet again!

Maintenance though, does not have to be a challenge. Think about it, just being on the HGC Diet Protocol, you are already aware of what you are putting into your body and how it affects your mood, water retention and other factors. During Phase Three where a careful reintroduction of food types took place, you might have discovered a sensitivity to some foods. Prior to being on the diet, you were unaware of the negative effects on your body that certain foods may have had, due in large part to their being just lumped in with everything else you were eating at that time.

Now, with greater awareness, you have a default structure built in, and it is this structure that will maintain your path to continued success.

Still a Diet?

Don’t think of Phase Four as a diet per se. You are literally eating for life. As in better long-term health with more energy to do the things you enjoy doing. Eating well through nutritiously dense calories packed with protein, vitamins, and micro nutrients just makes sense!

So, instead of telling people you are on a diet, tell them, this is your diet instead. Far more empowering, giving you more control over how you view the new lifestyle emerging from your weight loss.

Check your Labels

Restrict all processed foods as much as possible, but if you absolutely must, check labels for salt, fats, and sugar. Go for fresh and if possible, organic every time. Allow a little extra time for grocery shopping, so you can check labels. Salad dressings are notorious for high sugar in the form of fructose. Oil or vinegar-based dressings are always going to be better for you.

Stay clear of fast food restaurants, and avoid simple carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, bleached flour, rice, and sugary foods. Anything that is refined. As you introduce foods back into your digestive system, opt for whole grain, fresh fruit, and vegetables. In fact, your carbohydrates should ideally come from these.

Research on line for foods that you like, as well as recipes. Check your HCG Supplier for recipe downloads and tips. Nowadays there are some great savory and sweet food combination ideas for just about every diet out there. HCG is no exception!

Join an on-line HCG Diet support group where you and others can share your HCG Protocol journey along with others. Groups can be a great support, especially if you have fallen off a little bit during a special occasion.

Treat Yourself!

Not with food! Now that you have squeezed into your ideal size, it might be tempting to throw everything aside for a day or two and indulge. After all, you tell yourself; you have earned it!

While, undoubtedly you have, indulging in carbs and sugary foods will only lead to feelings of self-doubt and guilt later on. Not to mention the possible revisiting of a pound or two or more.

Instead, treat yourself to a new dress or a new pair of jeans. Something that makes you feel good and showcases the dedication you have put into transforming your life.

Get Appy

Apps and websites are great resources to help you stay on track. Phase Four is all about setting up for continued success, so yes, there will be calorie counting. Apps and websites can give you a complete calorie, fat, and nutritional breakdown of each of the different foods you want to eat. If possible, download one or two of these apps onto your device or smart phone, so that no matter where you eat, you remain in control of your healthy lifestyle.

So here we are. Phase Four. Reach out to your HCG supplier for information about meal planning, recipe ideas, and calorie counting.

You have come this far. You’ve got this. Trust me.

Life After Phase Two: Embracing Phase 3 of the HCG Diet

You have stuck at it! — The first two phases of the HCG Diet. Let’s recap quickly. Phase One where you front loaded as many calories as you wanted, was probably the best two or three days of the diet so far. Tainted only by your concerns regarding Phase Two; the caloric restrictions, and maybe the odd worry about how you would fare during this time.

But you got through it. By now, after several weeks on Phase Two you should notice more energy, and less craving for sugary foods and starches. Additionally, the headaches you might have experienced at the beginning of Phase Two, as your body adjusted to the caloric restrictions, may have gone now. Overall, you may be feeling more energized than you have felt in a long while.

So, you are about to enter Phase Three of your HCG Diet. This is where we begin re-introducing certain foods back into our food choices. Because we have cut out so many of the foods during the HCG Protocol, this is a great time to pay close attention to the way your body feels, i.e bloated, or less energy as you reintroduce small portions of the food back into your diet. After eating certain foods, any departure from an overall sense of wellbeing could indicate a food sensitivity, and one that may best be avoided as you move beyond the HCG Diet Protocol.

As always, whenever there are medical questions concerning your health or response to food, seek medical advice.

An Important Phase

Phase Three can be a volatile period simply because your body is now beginning to readjust to something closer to normal eating patterns. Think of this phase of as the start of eating for life. It is very important therefore to continue a disciplined approach to food choices. From this day forward you are committing to healthy food portions, and choices that reflect your health and wellness goals.

Think about it for a moment. Your body has just experienced profound weight loss over a very short period of time. You may have lost anywhere between 20 to 50 pounds! Now here’s the important thing to remember. With most extreme weight loss diets as soon as the dieter resumes normal eating habits, the weight piles back on, with likely even more on top.

Because during your diet, you incorporated HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, hormone into your diet plan, muscle loss will be negative compared with most diets following similar caloric restrictions. Muscle helps burn calories, helping to support a higher metabolism. In short, so long as you continue to observe the recommended food choices while on the Protocol, your weight should remain stable to within a pound or two.

Why a Third Phase?

As mentioned above, assuming you remained true to the Dr. Simeons’ protocol, you have lost a significant amount of weight. Phase Three is intended to accomplish three things:

  1. To help stabilize your weight after losing a large amount.
  2. Give your digestion a chance to adjust itself back to more normal eating habits.
  3. To help you pin down possible food sensitivities, any of which may have contributed to the weight gain, bloating, and lethargy that took you down the HCG path to begin with!

Size Does Matter

On-line searches fail to present a particularly united front on the amount of food or caloric intake on Phase Three, leading many to fear a return of the weight they worked so hard to lose. What is clear, is Dr Simeons, the founder of the HCG Diet Protocol, realized there were dieters who, having consumed only 500 calories per day for three weeks, were afraid to leave Phase Two for fear of weight gain.

What is clear is that portion size generally, has increased since Dr. Simeons’ day , so we may need to take a look at just how much food we are putting onto our plates. This is a good guide going forward anyway, since, particularly in America, there is a tendency toward filling our plates to the edge, leading to the inevitable consumption of more than we really need.

Aside from the obvious commitment to the removal of sugars or starches from our diet, consider putting less food onto the plate. To get used to this, place your food onto a smaller plate. A plate reserved normally for salads, for example would do fine. Purely from a psychological perspective, if your plate is full, your brain will think you have the same amount of food as a large plate!

This approach might also be a helpful tool in resetting your digestion. Generally speaking, following on from caloric restriction, the body is not particularly well equipped to consume large amounts of food straight away. By adding food back into your body in smaller portions, your digestive organs will be better able to cope.

Ask yourself. Would you immediately go from a 10 day juice cleanse straight to the fried chicken counter? The correct answer of course is, oh, no I wouldn’t. Of course not! Even if you did, I bet you might feel quite sick afterwards.

Counting Calories

The reality is, in one way or another, either literally, or through an educated guess regarding portion size; calorie counting is going to be part of your healthy eating and weight maintenance program going forward. During Phase Three there is the opportunity to create food choice and preparation habits that will last far beyond the HCG Diet Protocol.

Caloric additions over the Phase Three period last approximately three weeks. The guide below could be a useful tool when attempting to work out the appropriate number of calories to consume during each week of the phase.

  1. Week 1: 900-1000 Calories per day
  2. Week 2: 1100-1200 Calories per day
  3. Week 3: 1300-1450 Calories per day.

These numbers serve for guide purposes only. A person experiencing above normal physical activity or stress as part of their job or family situation may find they need to adjust accordingly.
As always, if you have concerns or questions, speak to your family doctor.

Food Choices

Other than the obvious sensible eating, it is not the intent of this post to venture into the specific: Do’s and Don’t’s of eating this or that. The simple fact of the matter is, there are as many food choices and suggestions out there, as there are food sensitivities or preferences and opinions standing behind them!

I could encourage healthy fats through the consumption of peanuts, only to be told you are allergic to peanuts. The same with the excellent protein to be found in shrimp. Only to learn you’re deathly allergic to shrimp. Steak then? You’re vegetarian. See? I’m scratching my head!

Rather, independent research should be encouraged, and I suggest as much here. Check your HCG Diet Protocol provider for recipe ideas and downloads. The bottom line is, eat the food that is as close to nature as possible within the caloric range, and that you are able to physically tolerate. As mentioned earlier; you may find during Phase Three that you are not able to tolerate some of the foods you ate before. Or you may find that a particular food was the food, guilty of making you bloat.

The obvious caution where fats are concerned is to eat healthy fats. Fat found in a brazil nut is a far cry from the fats found in a bag of potato chips or oven fries. Sugars? Keep those to a minimum too. Your calories need to be healthy calories. The carbs and sugar in a bagel are better than those in a chocolate donut. But a banana beats both of those.

Be mindful of where your calories are coming from and adjust.

Your body is going to respond differently than the next body. Some combinations of carbs and fats may wreak havoc on one, and not another. Leading me back home to my original point.

Keep at it. Like every goal worth pursuing, it takes time, patience and the development of knowledge along the way. But you have made it this far. Congratulations. Be proud and celebrate the new version of you.

Still Unsure of How to Undertake the HCG Diet?

If you haven’t heard of the HCG protocol, then you ought to know that this is the ideal diet that will save you the stress of starving yourself to death for the sake of eliminating the extra fats that have been consistently killing your dieting efforts.

Do not despair. With the HCG diet, expect to engage in fewer workouts, and minimal or no muscle engaging fitness programs at all. This is because this diet will allow you to adopt the best eating techniques that will help you build the new body you that you’ve been longing for. HCG can help redistribute the fat to the proper places on your body; sculpting an entire new body in place of the old you.

Get this right; having such good eating habits will not only keep you healthy, but will also aid in maintaining the new body weight that you’ve acquired with the HCG Diet plan. Yes, we agree, there are tons of recommended diets online that could probably work for you, but who doesn’t love to associate himself/herself with the best available?

Beware that the HCG Diet is always divided into two parts: the HCG product and the very low-calorie eating. Be selective when choosing the type of food to include in your diet, and as you do this, ensure that do not go past the set amount of 500 calories in a day.

You should go ahead and weigh the quantity of your food on a food scale to ascertain that it is the right amount that you are about to consume. Be precise.

Before commencing to consume the low-calorie foods, certify that you have your HCG product. It’s one of the vital essentials in this diet, and its purpose is to boost your energy level by accessing your body’s fat stores, so that you can maintain your normal activities while undergoing the weight loss process.

Also, if you have cancer, diabetes, gallbladder disease, or blood clots in your family, the HCG Diet may not be right for you. Stop using the medication immediately and check with your doctor Pregnant or breastfeeding mothers are also exempted.

This means that everyone who is planning to use the HCG Diet should first go through a thorough, in-depth medical evaluation to determine whether they are fit for use of HCG.

HCG Diet Details

During your day one and two of using the HCG Diet, eat foods that have high fats contents. Eat between 3000 to 4000 calories of dairy products, nuts and fried foods in a day. Do not restrict yourself. Eating fatty foods is a vital procedure that will help you to control your cravings after you’ve started the next chapter of doing away with such kinds of food. This is called the loading phase of the HCG Diet.

The next few weeks are bound to be hectic. You’ve got this! On the third day, you have to restrict your diet and eat a maximum of 500 calories per day. This could be tough, right? You will also have to maintain this eating pattern up to the 26th day while you are also taking the daily dosage of the HCG hormone.

Your cravings could intensify, but you can suppress them and keep yourself fit by drinking more than 64 ounces of water per day. The HCG helps to deal with cravings and hunger.

Scheduled Meals on the HCG Diet

You are to eat lunch and dinner and two other separate snacks each day during the HCG Diet. The recommended snacks should either be a melba toast (Alternative for a piece of bread) or one yummy fruit (choose one among a handful of strawberries, one medium-sized apple or orange, or a half grapefruit).

It is preferable if you divide your snacks between the two meals. Have the melba toast for lunch and consume the remaining selected fruit during or after dinner.

In the HCG Diet plan, it is also helpful to take vitamins to boost your system. Take a Vitamin D and Potassium supplement. The Potassium supplement should have a minimum of 99mg in it while the Vitamin D supplement should possess 1000 units. Ingest the Potassium supplement three times and the Vitamin D once in a day.

The HCG Lunch and Dinner

The proportion of the meat, vegetables, melba toast, and the fruit in your HCG Diet should be balanced. The chosen meat should be approximately 3.5 ounces with no added fats or bones. Include either skinless chicken breast, cold water fish, lobster, buffalo, or crab in the diet.

The meat should also not be fried with oil or butter, just grill or broil it. Add a little pepper, vinegar or salt to spice it up. Pickled fish, salmon, canned tuna, and deli meats aren’t fit for this diet. Avoid them as much as possible!

The rule still stands; no oil or butter should be added when preparing your vegetables and do not eat just one type of vegetable for all your meals. You can eat three cups of raw spinach, green salads, or beet greens. Red radishes (a cupful), onions (half a cup) and tomatoes (one medium size) are also ideal.

The HCG Phases

Dr. Simeons, the founder of the HCG Diet, divided the diet patterns into the three phases below.

  • Phase 1- This is the cleansing phase that can speed up your weight loss. It is a bit expensive and consumes a lot of time. (This phase was actually added by Kevin Trudeau in his book about the HCG Diet called “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want you to Know About”.)
  • Phase 2- This phase is divided into three parts: the loading, the core diet, and the taper-off phase. This phase is meant to create awareness so that those on the diet can know its purpose. In the loading phase, you’ll have more intake of fats to replenish your fat reserves. In the core phase, you’ll continue the 500-calorie diet with the HCG hormone injections, and this should last up to 40 days. In the taper phase, you won’t take any of the HCG, but you will continue with the 500 calorie diet for three more days.
  • Phase 3- This is where the maintenance diet comes in. You will go back to eating a low carb diet and do away with the HCG Diet and the HCG Hormone. Eat as much as you want while maintaining your new weight within 2 pounds of your weight of the day of your last injection. You can proceed to start over again after 6 weeks off of HCG. If you need to lose more weight, this is called doing another round of HCG.

Conclusion

The HCG Diet plan is simple, but if you miss out on the little details then you will probably struggle on the plan. You won’t achieve the optimum results that you badly want. Abide by the scheduled meals to stay healthy and active. It can be done, just do your part by sticking to the plan closely to succeed.

A New Way to Look at Obesity

hcg weight lossThe U.S. has been battling obesity for a few decades. Currently, more than two-thirds of all American adults are considered to be either overweight or obese. It’s important to not only identify how this unhealthy weight gain occurs, but also what can be done to prevent it or at least combat it.

According to A.T.W. Simeons, M.D., the nature of obesity is much more complicated than previously known. Based on clinical observations, there is even a shift in the way we understand causes in obesity and weight gain. Because of this, the HCG weight loss program is becoming more popular. Here are the three main causes of obesity:

The Inherited Factor
The first thought when it comes to obesity causes is that it is passed on through genetics and begins at birth. Having a low diencephalic capacity would represent the inherited factor in obesity, which explains why siblings can have varying obesity levels.

Other Diencephalic Disorders
The second way obesity can be caused is the lowering of a previously high or normal fat-banking capacity. Diabetes, for instance, can result in the diencephalon trying too hard to sustain the necessary blood sugar levels and lead to obesity once the fat-banking capacity is reduced.

The Exhaustion of the Fat-Bank
Like being reduced, overusing the fat-bank capacity can result in obesity as well. When a normal fat center is drastically altered by an influx of food, obesity can be the immediate result.

Because obesity is so common in the United States, dieting has always been extremely popular. At any given moment in the country, for instance, approximately 50% of the entire population is attempting some form of diet.

HCG weight loss program has become a controversial yet popular form of dieting over the years. Contact HCG Supplies today if you want to learn more about combating obesity, learn about HCG shots, or how the HCG weight loss diet works.

Combating Obesity: Understanding the HCG Diet

obesityAmericans have always struggled with obesity. Unfortunately, more than two-thirds of U.S. adults are currently considered to be overweight or obese. Losing all that excess weight is never as easy as it sounds, either. Some people simply have difficulty effectively shedding multiple pounds and keeping them off. Fortunately, that’s where the HCG diet comes in.

During the 1950s, as Americans continued to fight obesity and look for ways to effectively lose weight, Dr. ATW Simeons created the HCG diet. Thanks to Dr. Simeons, Americans toady have the option to use HCG weight loss strategies to get back down to a healthier size and feel much better about themselves.

If you or someone you know is struggling with obesity and wants to learn more about HCG weight loss, it’s best to understand Dr. Simeons’ plan and stick to it as much as possible.

Here is a general outline of Dr. Simeons’ HCG diet:

Breakfast
During breakfast, rather than eating a substantial and carb-induced meal, consider a much smaller meal to only cover the basics. Tea and coffee can be consumed in any amount but be sure to not add any sugar. Only a single tablespoonful of milk is allowed in any 24-hour period during the diet, too. You can, however, use Saccharin or Stevia as substitutes for cane sugar.

Lunch and Dinner
Lunch and dinner is where the bulk of the eating will take place during the HCG diet. If you are sticking to it and are serious about following it, you should only eat the following:

100 grams of either beef, chicken breast, lobster, crab, or shrimp. Be sure to remove all visible fat before you cook and weigh the meat raw.

Only one type of vegetable should be eaten. You can choose from either spinach, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, asparagus, fennel, chicory, chard, or red radishes.

Additionally, you can add either one bread stick or one piece of Melba toast. And can choose between an apple, a handful of strawberries, or one-half grapefruit.
