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.


I just received the drops in the mail, but do to my upcoming menstrual cycle, I am waiting to start the diet when I am finished with the cycle. Do I open the drops and test them now to make sure the hcg is good, or wait until I am ready to start taking them? It will be aprox 2 1/2 weeks until I start the drops, so I can do them after cycle ends, or do I start now, even though I am only about 13 days from cycle starting... any help on this would be wonderful

Wait till your cycle is over then test and do diet.  Genetly shake when you are ready to test.

I have been on the drops for 13 days now and I have been very strict with myself and have lost 8 pounds so far, I thought I would be down more, I had a 3 day period where I didn't lose anything which was very frustrating for me since I was so strict with myself! Would it be stupid if I had a steak or apple day to give myself a little "boost"? Or should I just stick with the 500 cals and hope to lose more?

A few things.  What do you mean by strict?  Some people feel they have but go off here and there thinking they are following the diet as is.  What hCG are you using?  Are you losing inches?  Remember it's pounds and inches not pounds only.  Food journal and body measurements are the 2 most important things when trying to find what went wrong or why you are losing slow.

I have noticed that no matter what everyone I know at the end of phase 2 averages a loss of 1 pound per day. Us anyone here experienced more than one pound pee day? Say for example 30 lbs on a 21 day cycle or 50 lbs in a 40 day cycle? Thanks
I love the miracle noodles. Can I eat them as an additional snack if I've already had my regular meals and snacks? Or is my only option to incorporate them into one of may planned snacks/meals?

Yes you can have them as added snack or with a meal.  Don't go overboard.

I'm attending a big event in two weeks and I'm on my 5th day of hcg shots but I want to plan a cheat day for just one day. Do i need to stop the injections 3 days before and then do an apple day?

You can do any of the ideas above.  A full break, a planned cheat, it's up to you.

When i finish up phase one i will want to go on to phase 2. Can I take a couple days break? do I do the load days over again?
