hCG Diet Gorge Days! Think FAT!!
How do you gorge on the hCG diet? FAT is the answer. Back when I got serious about losing weight and staying on a low carb life style (thanks to the birth of my son, low carb was out the window! But that’s another story), we did a little thing called the FAT FAST. The FAT FAST is perfect for the hCG diet gorge days or load days, as they are often called. And in reality, that is what Dr. Simeons really means when he says ‘eat to capacity.’
Make yourself some tuna salad or chicken salad or salmon salad and load it up with mayonnaise. Lots of FAT in mayonnaise for the hCG gorge you have to do.
Fat Fast Parfait perfect loading day treat!
Treat yourself to a yummy cheesecake. Cheesecake is loaded with FAT.
Bacon, hold the nitrites please so use nitrate free, is another high fat food.
Egg yolk, they are little fat balls!
Macadamia nuts, talk about fat balls. They have about 14 grams of fat per 1/2 ounce.
Black olives are another little fatty food.
Switch to olive oil, or better yet avocado oil, for your salad dressing. Here is a list of hCG Diet Phase 1 Foods and 3 hCG diet Phase 1 recipes, Cyprus Salmon, Spinach Omeltte and Healthy Hollandaise Sauce.
The best fats to consume for your loading days include mono-saturated such as in Olive oil, Canola oil and Safflower Oil, and Omega fats 3, 6 and 9, like in Salmon.
There is a diet called the Ketogenic Diet that works great for the hCG diet gorge days. This is a diet where you eat 96% fat, 4% protein and 2% carbs, for two days. Following this formula, for your load days, you will be able to ease into the hCG diet protocol, helping avoid those killer hcg diet headaches, plus helping fight cravings and hunger on day 3 when you are eating only hCG diet food.
You will gain weight on the hCG load days, but don’t worry, what you gain and then some will quickly come off in a few days.
How much you gain? Don’t know. It varies by individual, by how much water you retain and by how overweight you are when you start.
If you are wondering whether or not you start taking hCG on your load days, please review Hw To Start the hCG Diet Protocol for details. Knowing when to inject and how to start the hCG diet is a very important aspect of Dr. Simeons’ Protocol. In short, yes you start taking it on your load days. You have to get the hCG in your system prior to reducing your calories to 500.
The rationale behind eating more fat foods on your load days and decreasing carbs can be found in my post hCG Diet Headaches for further reading.
