Boost Your HCG Results by Following these Two Phases First

HCG 101

So. you’re onboard, super excited and ready to get going with your HCG Diet! Congratulations! We know you’re going to look amazing. You might even have your HCG Supplies — syringes, vials and bacteriostatic water on the way! Rest assured our on line ordering and delivery is secure, quick and confidential.

Right now though, while you’re anxious to get going, you might have a question or two. That’s understandable.

How HCG Works

The HCG hormone forms the back bone to a successful HCG Diet plan. The use of the hormone HCG, via injection forms part of the four phase diet or lifestyle- change plan, also known as Dr. Simeons’ Protocol. The hormone, which reduces hunger cravings and encourages the burning & redistribution of fat (not muscle) during the most intense Phase 2 of the diet, should be taken according to Dr. Simeons’ instructions. The retention of muscle during the weight loss phase plays an instrumental role in preventing weight from ‘coming back’ once you’ve successfully lost the desired weight, and entered into the Phase 4, or Maintenance mode.

Diet Phases

Subdivided into four parts; the HCG Diet plan gives you the opportunity to phase in the diet, something not all diet programs offer. After the Phase 1, front loading phase, you’ll enter Phase 2; this is where the real results start. Careful caloric restriction paves the way for significant weight loss. The remaining phases; phase 3 and phase 4, the final, lifestyle phase, we’ll talk about next time!

Eat as Much as You Want!

Welcome to Phase 1, also known as Loading Days. Eat everything you want! Eat as much as you want! Eat all the things you are likely to miss. This can include cookies, ice cream, candy and other goodies. French fries? Go for it! This phase will last about three days. Stock up on the inside!

Is This a Good Time?

Ideally, you should take your HCG hormone per instructions at the same time each day. Taking your HCG hormone on your weekend schedule after a half-day lie-in, for example, is not going to reflect a daily work schedule that puts you on the road at 6.00am. The important thing is to make it work for you.
As with all successful endeavors, some forward planning and consistency is key.

Five Hundred and Counting!- Phase 2

Beginning on day three is where you start restricting your caloric intake for the appropriate amount of time according to the weight you wish to lose. A person needing to lose 50lbs or more is likely going to want to take the maximum amount of time on each phase. Hopefully, you will have referred to your list of allowable foods during this phase and not winging it on the last minute, on your way out the door to work.

Keep preparation at the front of your mind. It is worth repeating, preparation really is the key to your success!

Aside from drinking lots of water, begin your day with coffee as normal. Milk in your coffee is allowed, however, no more than one teaspoon of milk per day. Sugar is not allowed, however Stevia is. One packet or one serving per cup. Remember, you are watching your caloric intake. Reserve your calories for nutrient rich foods at meal time.

The Lunch Bunch

Schedule your lunch time! Missing meals will likely lead to binge eating tons of carbs and refined sugars somewhere around 2.00pm. Remember, you are eating for energy. Nutritious foods are a must.

Healthy Options

Be honest. If healthy options are not easy to obtain during working hours, prepare your lunch beforehand. You are permitted to eat 100 grams of protein per day. This can come from chicken, fish, veal, crabmeat, and beef. Choose the lowest fat content possible. Salmon, being high in fat, can easily be replaced with wild-caught Tilapia which is lower in fat and provides an excellent source of protein.

Grab your Broccoli

Remember your veggies at lunch time. You are permitted to have one vegetable at lunch time. This can be broccoli, spinach, cucumber, cabbage, or lettuce. Refer to your list of HCG food list for each of the four phases.

Daily Bread

Great news! You can have a carb! A bread stick or a slice of melba toast. No garlic salt or other flavorings. No stuck on sesame seeds! Those are extra calories. Remember; ask yourself. Are these calories worth it, as they relate to nutrient rich calories your body needs?

Fruiti-Tuti

Last on the lunch time menu is a piece of fruit. This must be a plain piece of fruit. Not something served on top of a cheesecake or under cream. That was Phase One, remember? By now, it might feel like a distant dream. But hang in there; you’re doing great! A good fruit choice is a crisp apple, a fresh half grapefruit, or a handful of ripe strawberries.

You Did It!!

Wow! You made it through lunch time and did great! Hang in there. There’s a healthier and more active version of you, who can’t wait to congratulate you, and thank you for all your efforts during this phase.

Grab Dinner!

Yep. But not really. The same as lunch, planning ahead is paramount. This is not a time to cheat by grabbing some fried chicken on the way home because the kids have practice and traffic’s already backed up. Either have someone else pick up the kids if possible; or have your dinner already prepared at home. Grab n’ go if you must. But dinner is it.

Dinner will consist of the same, or similar to your lunch. This is where you can eat the other half of your protein, another vegetable from your food list, and the apple for desert, because you had strawberries at lunch time.

Treat

By this time, you might consider a cup of black coffee, a treat. Go ahead, drink it. But keep it black and sugar free!

Keep at It!

Keep going. You’re committed and doing really great. Check out support online, be inspired by the success stories of other HCG Dieters who started their journey much like you; wanting to change for the better.

Look out for the next posting. Phase 3, and phase 4.

Get Motivated. Stay Motivated. You’re Not Alone.

NEW YEAR. NEW YOU.

Remember the New Year? Yes, that thing a few weeks ago when the ball dropped, and New York, along with the rest of America, sang and cheered for 2019. Somewhere in a room full of celebration and left-over Christmas good cheer, you made the decision to get fit. Maybe you stuffed your face with one last handful of chocolate covered pretzels before embarking on your 500 calorie diet. Perhaps that morning as you lay on the bed, shoving fifty pounds worth of excess belly into a pair of skinny jeans, you decided enough was enough. That this was going to be your year, no matter what. You decided that you were going to lose weight.

And Then What Happened?

And then comes that first wet Wednesday morning. It is February after all. Cold, depths of winter. Dark nights, equally dark mornings. You might even be shoveling snow on the driveway. Trying to decide if the car outside your door is actually rehearsing for a Japanese ice sculpture exhibition; or if indeed, it is still just a car.

Hardly the run up to the HCG Diet of the Year award, if there was one. Nope, you’re more likely to reach for a plate of steak, potatoes, and corn bread, followed by a long winter’s nap. Who wants to mix a ‘refreshing’ smoothie? You might as well ask for cold soup!

The Numbers

Statistically, more people renew life style or personal fitness commitments in January than at any other time of year. Two weeks in however, almost fifty percent of New Year Resolutions are shoved into the back of the closet along with the tennis shoes. Why? Possibly, because it is winter, and as descendants of ancient man, we should be conserving energy and stuffing our faces with fists full of carbs, not counting how many calories in a stem of broccoli, and running ten miles before driving to work.

The Upside

Okay, so here is the other side of the coin. Remember that nearly fifty percent chuck it all in for some late night TV and a bag of chips and ranch dip? Well, what about the other fifty percent? The ones that do go on to successfully complete their goals? The ones who others will look at six months from now and ask; how did you do it?

Getting on Track

What is your reason, The big WHY when you took the plunge, ordering your HCG Supplies? Often times the only difference between someone who follows through with their goals and someone who doesn’t is the purpose behind it. Perhaps you witnessed health issues in friends and family members; issues related to lifestyle and food choices that have built up over many years. In that case, you might feel as though you are staring at a future you want no part of. And so, eating 500 calories a day and following an HCG Diet plan seem like a small trade off in the long run. Alternatively, you just might want to look better in your clothes! Maybe you participated in the recent 10 year Social Media Challenge. The one where you posted a picture of yourself ten years ago, compared with how you look today. You might have thought, what happened? Whatever your motivation, reinforce it with your WHY.

Your Body Responding to Change.

As good as positive change is for our bodies, be prepared to drag it kicking and screaming all the way to a healthier you. If you are following the 500 calorie a day diet, reducing your sugar or carb intake, or perhaps brand new to exercise, your body is probably going to protest! Be prepared to feel more tired than usual, possibly more irritated. While these things don’t exactly feel great, you are literally eliminating toxic sugars, additives, and other non-nutritious elements from your body. Preparation and knowledge is your insurance against the temptation to quit. When the going gets tough; rest assured you are heading toward your goal. Now for the fun, statutory Legal Disclaimer: It goes without saying you should speak to your doctor beforehand regarding any medical issues needing to be addressed prior to your lifestyle change.

Your Support Network

Seek the support of others aiming for the same or similar goals as you. Social media is a great tool for this. Check out Meet Up groups in your area. The right support can be critical to long term success, especially those following a 500 calorie restricted diet or the HCG Diet.

Families

We love our families and close friends, but they are not always the best source of support. Perhaps they have witnessed you taking a similar journey several times before, only to wipe out by February. Other family members, not understanding how a restricted calorie diet works may be critical of your weight loss goals. Still others, content with the lifestyle and food choices you are attempting to move away from may try reeling you back in with tempting treats and beverages.

Exercise During an HCG Diet Plan

Exercise is great. It releases endorphins, can make your skin glow and just generally make you feel great! All those are good things. However, those who have either never committed to a long term exercise program or who engage in 500 calorie per day diet plans such as the HCG Diet should carefully plan their work outs in advance.

Slow and Steady

For exercise newbies, it is important to give those muscles a gentle awakening through exercise programs like yoga and pilates. Remember earlier we discussed how much our bodies love to rebel when we try to do something beneficial in the long term? Well, exercise is one of those triggers. If in doubt, speak to a fitness professional who can help chart an appropriate work out plan designed to gradually and safely increase physical challenges as your fitness levels improve.

Exercising on 500 Calories

Even those used to exercising at a relatively high intensity and fitness level should begin slowly. An essential part of the HCG Diet plan is the calorie restriction. Intense exercise requires increased fuel to the muscles; in other words, more food! Once again, if unsure take advice from a fitness professional. As a general guide, you don’t have to skip the gym with your friends after work. Maybe now is the time to take that yoga or stretch class. Give your muscles a chance to recover from previous bouts of intense activity, in addition to adjusting to new food intakes currently imposed upon it.

A New Activity, a New Mindset

Any lifestyle change can be tough at first. Take the pressure off by learning a new activity! If you are looking forward to trying that new Tai Chi class in town, or that adult ballet class you have been curious about, now might be the time to try. Science has demonstrated that new activities create new neurological pathways as we study, learn and engage. The simple act of concentrating on a brand new activity may make us less likely to dwell on food or restricted calorie intake.

Get Your Rest

Tired? Get some rest! There are no medals for wearing yourself out. An effective workout plan includes recovery time. Avoid over fatigue and injuries by taking days off. Maybe you plan alternate days of walking the neighborhood for an hour with a pilates class.

Reward yourself

Now that you are beginning to see and feel the physical benefits of your HCG Diet and 500 calorie per day restriction, reward yourself! Nope. Sorry, not the cake! Perhaps a nice new set of cute underwear! Maybe a new, wow outfit for work, guaranteed to make people notice just how much weight you have lost. Maybe that new facial or skincare routine you have been wanting to try. After all, you are making a holistic investment in yourself! Whatever it is, do it! You have earned it!

Journal

Track your progress with a journal; either private or public blog posting with videos. It is up to you to decide. This is your journey. You get to choose how much you are comfortable sharing. Chances are, you may not see the incremental changes occurring at first. Over time, however, you will. Take hip, waist, chest measurements and so on, before you start your journey, then again at six week intervals. Compare the numbers. If you have stuck to your goals in the best way possible for you and your starting point, you will be amazed at the changes taking place. That can literally be the difference between continuing or reaching for a plate of white pasta.

Make it Fun

Remember, make it fun. This is your journey and no one else’s. Make a list of all that motivates you…and just go for it.

See you on the beach!

What should I order?

Customers always have questions about what to order. HCGSupplies.com has created an Easy Ordering Guide, but to make it even easier, we’ll give you the “broad strokes” guide.

Before we begin, remember: WE ARE NOT DOCTORS, AND CAN NOT GIVE MEDICAL ADVICE.  THESE STATEMENTS ARE OUR OWN OPINION BASED ON OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE ONLY. PLEASE CONSULT A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL BEFORE STARTING ANY MEDICATION OR DIET PROGRAM.

So, now that we’re clear…

Start with the amount of HCG you need. You can use the Easy Ordering Guide to find out the exact amount you need, but if you just want to estimate:

  • 23 Day Round – 5,000iu HCG
  • 43 Day Round – 10,000iu HCG

Now, decide how often you want to mix. (Yes, this matters.) Do you want to mix your HCG every few days (for a fresher mix), or once or twice throughout the diet (for more convenience).

  • Mix more often – order your HCG in 1,500iu or 2,000iu quantities
  • Mix less often – order your HCG in 5,000iu or 10,000iu quantities

Simple, right? Now onto the kit. This is the easiest yet.

Just find the kit that matches how you’ve ordered your HCG. For example…

If you are doing a 23-Day round, and you’re ordering your HCG in 1,500iu or 2,000iu quantities, then you’ll want

23-day mixing kit used with 1,500iu or 2,000iu HCG (HCG NOT Included)

See?

Here’s the other mixing kits, for your reference:

That’s it! 🙂

Salt – Your Hidden Best Friend

One of the best things you can do on the HCG Diet Protocol is to drink lots of water and use lots of salt.

“SALT?!!!”

Yes, I said salt. Not the nasty, over-processed, silicon-laden stuff that likely sits on your table right now. I mean natural salts that will add precious minerals back into your system and help it to function properly. Good salts, like Himalayan Pink Salt.

Mineral salts are great on the HCG Diet. They transport precious minerals to the body, give your food amazing flavor (WITHOUT adding calories!), and can be used to make you thirsty…so you’ll drink more water…which is always good. 🙂

HealthWatch: Hormone Could Lead To Weight Loss

Pregnancy Hormone Could Trigger Quick Slimming Effects

How far would you go to lose weight?

The latest diet trend actually tricks your body into thinking it’s pregnant. And believe it or not, women who are on it say the weight just melts off, up to a pound a day.

But some doctors are concerned.

CBS 2 HD investigates the HCG diet.

When you think of pregnancy, you don’t usually think of weight loss. 

But a new diet may, modeled after pregnancy, may change that. It’s all because of a hormone found only in mothers-to-be, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG).

“It’s produced by the placenta, part of the structure within the uterus that provides nutrition for a growing baby,” said Dr. Barry Klyde.

The hormone’s main function is to convert stored body fat into energy to help maintain the fetus. But now, women and men are using HCG to help lose weight.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Kelly Vaughn, a radio disc jockey who uses the injections under the supervision of her physician who prescribed the shots for her.

Here’s how it works. The hormone injection tricks the body into thinking it’s pregnant. The body then converts stored fat into energy, but because it isn’t needed to support a fetus, it triggers weight lost.

“The theory behind HCG is that when it’s in your bloodstream, it releases your fat stores, which is what it’s designed to do in pregnant women,” Vaughn said.

The diet also requires eating just 500 calories a day – but HCG also works to surpress appetite.

Vaughn has tried Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, and Physicians Weight Loss, but says HCG is the only diet that has actually worked for her.

“I’ve lost 40 pounds. The first three weeks I lost 15 pounds,” Vaughn said.

The use of HCG for weight loss, however, has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and concerned experts are warning of potential serious side effects.

“In women, the use of HCG can distort the menstrual cycle. In men the overproduction of testosterone can cause prostate enlargement and serious consequences,” said Dr. Klyde.

Vaughn said she doesn’t notice any side effects.

“I didn’t notice anything about it,” she said.

In recent years, additional studies show the weight loss may have been a result of the diet’s strict 500 calorie limit, and not necessarily the HCG. Still, many say they couldn’t have done it without the injections.

The cost of HCG is about $140 a month…
