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.


@Angela, There isn't a break between P1, P2 or P3. After P3 then you go on a 6 week break if it's your 1st round then start from P1, move into P2 and them P3 same as before.
I have done my two days of loading and I am on my fourth day of Phase 2. I am craving chocolate. Can I have one square and a lot of water?
@Jenn, No and you know that. You need to try L-Glutamine for cravings hCG diet teas or other things. Did you do a Candida Cleanse prior to starting?
Today was my 5th day on the hcj injectios, i fell so quilty because i ate 2 slices of pizza and some coke,...what do i have to do to get back on track? What can id do so i wont cheat?
@nyldaoni, did you do a candida cleanse? Have hCG Diet foods around, miracle noodles help fill you up.
Ive been on the VLCD for about 5 days now, and Ive already basically lost 10 pounds, even after accidentally cheating twice. (once was complete accident and the other one was because I was gonna pass out if I didnt get food). So, if I were to drink pure apple juice, would it still count as an apple? I cant really eat apples very much and since I was forced to cheat today, would it be safe to basically have miracle noodles and apple juice all day tomorrow? I know of a few brands of apple juice that I can get that dont have preservatives or sugar in them, so would i be fine with those?
@Kim, NO you can not have pure apple juice. Eat the fruit fruit is fiber.
What about cheating by drinking? I am going on a spring break trip and I want to have fun with my girl friends. Should I still take the drops on these days or stop for the week that I'm gone and then start up again once I get back? Or stop the drops all together?
@Caroline, Vodka would be best but it still takes a while to overcome a cheat. Follow the same rules as above.
I have a lunch meeting scheduled on my 11th day of injections. I really don't want to cheat. It is a BBQ place, so I thought I could order some plain brisket and green salad........or maybe do a salad bar?......what do you think would cause the least amount of damage?
