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.


@brenda, it may help. the hcg diet is very strict and cheating is not good while hcg is in your system.
I am so disencouraged today... I was losing 2 pounds a day, then it went to 4 (yes, 4!!!), then 1 and now I am stuck at the same weight for almost 3 days (depending on tomorrow morning). And when you're under such a restrictive diet, this is really NOT fun. :( Today is day 10, I have lost 10 pounds already and I know I should be happy, but being stuck on the same weight for 2 days is quite frustrating. Today I am feeling weak, hungry, moody - and I hadn't felt like that at all so far. I miscalculated my protein for lunch (by mistake I promise - I think kg and not pounds so I got confused) and when I realized it in the afternoon, I got so mad at myself. It turned out I was starving at dinner time so I ate my regular 3.5oz of chicken and said "to heck with it". It was either that, or I'd attack my son's snacks, drink diet coke, eat chocolate, and ruin it all. I was THIS close today. I mean, come on, eat 500cal/day, BORED, hungry and NOT loose anything? Sucks. Bugger. :(
hello!This was a really admirable subject! I come from roma, I was fortunate to find your website in google Also I learn much in your website really thank your very much i will come every day
Hi I am only on Day 7 of phase 2 and have lost right at 7 pounds. I finish round 2 on December 17th We leave for a cruise on Dec 23rd through the 26th I know I will not be on this diet for the cruise... how do I start back DO i wait the 21 days and do a whole new round or what exactly do I do? Thanks so much and btw will I gian back really quickly?
@Karen Burke, When you leave you will be on Phase 3 which is 3 weeks of 1500 calories no sugar no starch. If you gain you will follow the protocol as outlines in the manuscript for gaining on P3, Steak Day. After your 3 weeks you can restart.
Is there a problem is I started having heading during the loading phase? I think it is a reaction to the drops. Are your drops homeopathic?
@Kryss, I am not understanding your question. Can you rephrase it please? No the drops from my site hCG Body Shaper are NOT homeopathic.
@ Kevin: Your on P3 a week in, T day is today and you want to eat but then don't want to do the steak or apple day after? That is up to you. I will say that P3 is the phase where you are setting your hypothalamus and it would be important to maintain the range of lose allowed to fully reset and not continue the yo-yo dieting for life.
Thanks Dez, I am on the drops and didn't realize I could up the dosage. And yes I weigh and measure everything! I have about 40 lbs more to lose and certainly want to get there! Thanks!
