Dr. Simeons - Pounds and Inches hCG Diet Protocol
DR. SIMEONS hCG PROTOCOL
Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches is a very strict, very low calorie diet (VLCD). It consists of daily injections of hCG or daily real oral hCG of 125 iu’s-200 iu’s (your correct dosage is what takes the hunger away), 500 calories a day, 100 grams of protein 2x a day, 1 small fruit or 4-6 small strawberries 2x a day, 2 servings of vegetables, not mixed, and a salad. No dressing, No oils, nothing else. You stay on the diet for either 26 days (less than 25 pounds to lose) or 42 days (25 or more to lose) then move to stabilization for 3 weeks which is no sugar or starch. Then you have what we like to call mini maintenance time which varies before starting another complete round (P1 6 weeks wait, P2 8 weeks wait, P3 12 weeks wait etc.) until you have lost the desired weight.
Many hCG dieters refer to the various phases as P1, P2, P3 to indicate what point they are at in their hCG diet weight loss journey.
Your daily hCG diet protocol will resemble the plan below.

On the blog there is an hCG diet menu with hCG diet recipes and a 13 part video series about the hCG diet by Kevin Trudeau as presented at the Green Valley Spa in October 2008. There is also a Quick Overview of How to Start the hCG Diet that gives you a 10 step guide to prepare yourself.

We have a more detailed Phase 2 hCG Diet Food list on the site for you review.
How To Start
Load Days Day 1 & 2
Day 1, you will start your hCG injections or >Oral hCG today as well as your hCG load days
. You are allowed to eat anything you want, often refereed to as 2 day hCG diet gorge days or loading days or as Dr. Simeons says ‘eat to capacity’. Preferably, you will want to eat fatty foods. You are not restricted on your eating today.
Day 2 you will repeat your hCG oral troche or injections and your loading from yesterday.
Diet Day 3
Day 3 starts your official 500 calorie hCG diet day and you will continue your diet from the sample hCG diet meal plan above for the next 26 to 42 days depending on how much weight you need to loss. The minimum is 26 days for less weight to lose overall and 42 days for more overall weight to lose.
As the Dr. Simeons hCG diet has taken on popularity there have been some changes since its inception. Some people go straight through the 42 days either injecting hCG or doing oral hCG, some take weekends off and some take Sundays off. This is another YMMV.
After your hCG diet protocol treatment is over, you will still eat as if you are still taking hCG for 3 days. The hormone is in your system and rapid weight gain is possible during this delicate time. After the 4th day of being off diet you may proceed to eat with the exception of NO Sugar and NO Starch, but we would advice choosing your food wisely. Going back to old habits will bring back the weight.
After the hCG diet you should decide what will help you not only maintain your weight but improve your health as well. You should also decide what eating plan you are willing to do for life and what type of exercise you are willing to do for life.
If you need to continue to on your hCG diet journey to lose more weight, your next hCG protocol treatment begins in 6 weeks. This allows time for the body to reset itself from any immunity that may have built up during the hCG diet protocol.
Additional hCG diet treatments
If you need to lose additional weight, Dr. Simeons states in his - Pounds &Inches Manuscript
that for each interval when you are off the hCG drops, you should wait an additional amount of time before restarting the hCG diet protocol again. 6 weeks between course 1 and 2, 8 weeks between course 2 and 3, and 12 weeks between course 4 and 5.
FAQ for Dr. Simeons
When do I take my hCG?
You should take the hCG in the morning. It's best to tak it at the same time each day (as some people work 2nd and 3rd shifts).
When should I start?
Men can start anytime. Women should wait until after the last day of their cycle. It is a good idea to start on a Thursday if you can. This way you have 2 load days at work and 2 500 calorie days on a weekend to help you use 500 calories without temptation or extra stress.
I am a women, should I take hCG during my cycle?
The current thought is YMMV- some do some don’t. It’s up to you. Some people have experienced lighter cycles, some heavier, some no cramps, some mild or sever. YMMV.
Where can I get a copy of Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches manuscript?
It is a good idea to review - Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches Manuscript
before starting with the above or The Weight Loss Cure or The Naked Truth About The hCG Diet. You should have an understanding of the hCG diet plan and the reasons behind the diet protocol for yourself.
Where do I get hCG diet supplies from?
For Oral hCG, you can legally buy drops with real hCG in them from hCG Diet Journey. These are NOT homeopathic hCG, they do not contain alcohol and they will deliver 175 iu per daily dosage.
Where do I get hCG from?
There are places that we do recommend. We only recommend them because we have at some point used them for ourselves and we have found them to be trustworthy. We would never (and neither should you) buy hCG from just any site or vendor, or buy any homeopathic hCG as it doesn’t contain hCG. You can purchase your hCG from the hCG store. These vendors offer fast, friendly and reliable service.
Should I inject hCG or should I do sublingual hCG?
That is a personal choice. Some people do not like needles some don’t care. It’s a YMMV. I will say that the original hCG diet protocol did only shots, however the hCG oral drops are just as effective. You can buy oral hCG.
How much hCG should I buy for the diet?
That depends on how much weight you want to lose, how often you want to mix and how fresh you want it. If you only have 15-20 lbs to lose then a small ampule will be good. If you have 40 lbs or more to lose then 3 5000 ampules would be better.
If you are buying the oral hCG for 25 pounds or less, then buy 1 bottle. For over 25 pounds you will need 2 bottles. These are REAL hCG, not homeopathic.
We have never had an issue with the hCG’s effectiveness within 30-40 days. You can always buy a hCG test strip and test a bit from your bottle. Simply take a few drops via your syringe and gently dispense a few drops on the test strips. Read your testing kits directions to determine if it is positive for pregnancy. If so, then your hCG is effective.
What is the difference between Pounds and Inches and The Weight Loss Cure?
Kevin Trudeau recommends you do cleansing prior to starting the hCG diet, eat organically, do various cleanses during and after the hCG diet and take supplements. Trudeau also introduced the various phases to the diet.
Do I have to cleanse prior to hCG diet?
That is another YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) and is advocated in The Weight Loss Cure. Some do, some don’t and some mix and match from Pounds and Inches and The Weight Loss Cure. You will still lose weight. The cleanses are good as they do get your body ready and clears you of ‘toxins’ and such. For a cleanse to be effective you should eat organically. Cleansing will also help you clear yourself of yeast in your gut or Candida. Read Kevin Trudeau’s guidelines or get his book The Weight Loss Cure.
