hCG Diet Holiday Break

Well it is that time of year that dieting becomes difficult for most. The top questions right now are; How do you take a break on the hCG diet? How do you cheat on the hCG diet? What happens when you cheat on the hCG diet? I am planning to cheat on the hCG diet? How do you recover from a hCG diet cheat? And well you get it, most want to break for Thanksgiving, are planning on cheating, or want to make sure they can recover.

Rest assured this article will help guide you through the ins and outs of breaking, cheating, and recovery on the hCG Diet.

hCG Diet Break

Dr. Simeons does address a break or interruption on the hCG diet after 20 injections or oral hCG.

“If an interruption of treatment lasting more than four days is necessary, the patient must increase his diet to at least 800 calories by adding meat, eggs, cheese, and milk to his diet after that third day, as otherwise he will find himself so hungry and weak that he is unable to go about his usual occupation. If the interval lasts less than two weeks the patient can directly resume injections and the 500-caloire diet, but if the interruption lasts longer he must again eat normally until he has had his third injection.

When a patient knows beforehand that he will have to travel and be absent for more than four days, it is always better to stop injections three days before he is due to leave so that he can have the three days of strict dieting which are necessary after the last injection at home.”

What this means is if you are planning to go away for the Thanksgiving Day holiday or even Christmas holiday and you don’t want to be on the hCG diet during that time, follow the instructions above. Stop injections or oral hCG as you would when you are at the end of the hCG Diet Phase 2. However, you should still follow the no starch or sugar rule.

hCG Diet Planned Cheat

If you are just planning to cheat on Thanksgiving Day only, DO NOT INJECT or take the ORAL hCG. hCG takes about 3 days to totally leave your system and you may gain rapidly during that cheat time. Missing one dose won’t hurt, especially if you are going to have a planned cheat day.

After a planned cheat, you may gain weight or you may lose weight. No I am not talking in circles, the Leptin Theory plays a role in the answer. Who will gain or who will lose, we can’t answer that. It is truly a YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) as we are all individuals.

hCG Diet Cheat Recovery

After you have cheated or had your planned break, the next thing is to recover and get back on the hCG diet ASAP. Take your gains, suck it up and ride the pony to your goal with strict dieting from this cheat fourth.

Increase you exercise routine, add an extra 30 min to your activity. If you don’t exercise then start until the scale is moving again.
Increase your water intake.
Use some natural diuretics to rid your body of any water gains.
Cut the break sticks and Melba toast.
Use an Apple day or Steak Day the day you get back on hCG injections or Oral hCG.


Dieting isn’t easy and the hCG diet is hardcore. But there is a reason you decided to do this diet, there is a reason you chose now to lose weight. Whatever your goal is, use that to guide you back on your track, keep you focused and you will obtain your desired result.


Hello Im going on a trip in a few days and I'm sure I will cheat on the diet what do you recomend do I just stop taking the drops for those three days and then restart when I get back. Should I do the three days of the diet before I go on my trip without the hcg drops?

You are on the break page so not understanding what else you need.

Im am starving everyday i loaded so much i felt sick. Im craving crunching stuff like nuts ors crackers. oh can i do a candida clease while taking hcg under my tongue
8 days into phase 3 and went to Las Vegas..... what happend in Vegas did not stay in Vegas...... I was there 6 days with no scale... I am up 4 lbs and will be doing a steak day today. Is it to late????? what can i do now if the steak day does not work?

I know EVEYTIME I go I gain!  Takes me about a week to lose it.  Yes do steak day!

Hi there. I did the drops for 15 days and then had to go off for 2 weeks. do i need to start over with load days or just go straight back to the 500 calories and the drops. during the 2 weeks i maintained the no starch no sugar rule, mostly, had a few cheats.

You will need to do the hCG Diet Break to get yourself back. Just click the link and follow the rules there.  Sorry, yes start over.  You have been gone for the diet for over 2 weeks.

Good afternoon, I followed protocol and woke up on VLCD 8 one pound heavier, this past Saturday. I was so discouraged I did not follow protocol all weekend. I gained two pounds abd am eilling to suck it up. I only took one dose of the drops Saturday and started up again in Sunday. I am back on track today but I'm afraid I ruined my progress. Is there any hope? Do I need to wait and start from scratch? I am feeling unusually hungry today and that's not usual which is why I'm asking.... Heeeeeelp! I don't want to quit. Thanks

Gains can happened due to a lot of issues but it's generally temporary and reversible.  See hCG Diet Cheat, hCG Diet Stall That would be the best to help get back on track.  Generally a gain is due to oil use or water retention or just hormones.  Weight does have a naturally fluctuations which correct themselves.  Just don't panic check diet, salt use, get extra water and continue.  You don't cheat cause you gained.

@Dez, Thanks for your reply. I learned the hard way that gaining is NO reason to cheat. I think it was just a mixture of hormones after TOM that pushed me over the edge. I got back on track and woke up to a 3 lb loss this morning so I'm so glad to be back on track!!!!! I can't believe I sacrificed a possible additional 4 lb loss but hey, gotta suck it up. Thanks for being stern too lol!!! NO excuse!!!!!!
