What constitutes Phase 1 of the hCG diet? That depends on who you are following, Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches or Kevin Trudeau’s The Weight Loss Cure. This article will break down both to help end the confusion for those learning about the hCG diet for weight loss.
Dr. Simeons’ hCG Diet Phase 1
As per Dr. Simeons’, the first step of the hCG diet consists of the hCG diet Loading Days, a 2 day load or more famously put, “eat to capacity”. The principle behind the hCG diet 2 day load is to fatten yourself up, preferably, eating fatty foods, to ease any initial hcg diet hunger or hcg diet headaches you may have going on a 500 VLCD from the level of calories you were previously eating. Here is a list of the best hCG Diet Phase 1 foods to eat to be compliant and get your fat in.
You are also starting your hCG diet injections or real oral hCG drops, at this time, to allow the hCG hormone to enter your system and take effect. It takes approximately two days for the hCG hormone to reach therapeutic levels for hCG dieting purposes.
Kevin Trudeau’s hCG Diet Phase 1
Kevin Trudeau’s first step of the hCG diet consists of cleansing for 30 days prior to starting the hCG diet loading days. Cleanses are recommended to remove impurities, toxins, fat and yeast overgrowth from your body.

Otherwise, you negate the purpose and benefits of the cleanses.
