hCG Diet Guideline

Which hCG Diet is Best?

There are several ways to do the hcg diet protocol. You can follow Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches, you can follow Kevin Trudeau’s The Weight Loss Cure, or you can go to a local clinic in your area. Search for hCG diet clinics to find a clinic close to you or you can use an online diet clinic at less than 2/3′s the cost.

Dr. Simeons and Kevin Trudeau offer DIY plans while the hCG diet clinical route is a supervised plan. Either way you will lose weight.

 

 

You have to be comfortable with your decision as to which is the best diet protocol for you. If you are following a DIY plan, please consult your doctor regarding your health and well-being before starting this or any diet. Know where to get your diet supplies> and follow the diet as it is laid out for optimal weight loss.
hCG Diet Preparation
Let’s look at a few products that are good for use with the hCG diet protocol regardless of whether you follow Pounds and Inches, The Weight Loss Cure or go the clinical route.
  • Food scale that measures in grams.
  • Body Fat Tape Measure
  • The George Foreman grill is very popular and easy to use.
  • Fiber, specifically psyllium seeds or psyllium husks from your local health food store. Psyllium is fiber as are Miracle Noodles, which are perfect for the hCG diet. Why are Miracle Noodles an hCG diet free food? One of the many reasons is that they have no calories!
  • Smooth Move Tea or Dieters Tea to help with any constipation you may have while on the diet.
hCG Diet Do’s & Don’ts
Do
  • Follow the plan you choose, Dr. Simeons’s Pounds and Inches, Simeons’ Kevin Trudeau’s The Weight Loss Cure or your clinic’s.
  • Drink a minimum of 8 – 8 oz glass of water a day. An additional 8 oz per 25 pounds of excess weight should be added for optimal results.
  • Light exercise.
  • Use mineral oil, baby oil, oil free lotions as needed or Ancient Minerals Ultra Pure Magnesium Oil.
  • Use food seasonings to flavor food but read labels to avoid sugar, starches or sugar alcohols.
  • Use sugar substitutes.
 
Don’t
  • Use products containing oil, such as lotions and cream on skin or hair.
  • Drink diet drinks, sodas or sugar free drinks.
  • Use make up that contains oils. Bare Escentuals Makeup is an excellent choice.
  • Use fats, oil, margarine in cooking, or ingest them.
  • Use or eat sugar or gum.
  • Eat foods with known starches or sugar free foods
hCG Diet Tips & Tricks
Having a binge eating feast or cheating on your hCG diet protocol is like restarting, but sometimes we just want something to satisfy a craving or need something different. To avoid breaking your hCG diet plan and still abate those cravings, or to just break up the strictness of the diet, occasionally you can have the following:
Tips to avoid a cheat
  • Sugar Free jello
  • Diet soda (go easy)
  • Popsicle with 0 fat, sugar and calories
  • L-Glutamine for cravings
  • Drink water.
  • Ice chips (the best ice is SONIC ice!!)
  • Adding fiber with Miracle Noodles.
Tricks to stay on hCG diet plan
  • Keep your hcg diet food on hand at all times.
  • Make food a few days out to avoid waiting till you are hungry to decide to cook.
  • Eat your food slowly.
  • Use a small salad plate vs. a huge dinner plate. This creates a visual and psychological effect.
Tips for a stall
  • If you find you are having a hCG diet stall (a stall is not losing for 4 or more days in a row) and need to get moving to stay motivated try the following;
  • Switch up what you are eating. If you find you are only eating steak, try chicken. If you are only eating chicken, try fish.
  • Add additional water to your current intake.
  • Try Corn Silk tea, Parsley tea, or Alpha tea. These are natural diuretics that may help you release additional water. There are additional natural diuretics.
  • Cut out the breadsticks or melba toast.
  • No eating out for a while.
  • Cut out diet drinks.
  • Check your hCG diet protocol rules and make sure you are eating as prescribed (mixing veggies, 100 grams of food, etc.)
  • Mix your fruit up and don’t have the same 2 fruits on the same day.
  • Avoid beef for a few days.
  • Cut out diet cheats or treats.
  • As a last resort if all else fails, eat 6 apples for 1 day, plus enough water to satisfy thirst
  • Try one of these hCG diet stall breaker meals,Apple Day or Steak Day.
Tips for eating out while in hCG diet protocol
If you have to eat out, grilled chicken salad works best, but needless to say, skip the dressing, cheese and croutons. You will probably be served more than 100 grams and you won’t be able to weight it, but it’s still the best choice. Some fast food places offer fruit or other healthier choices. As long as the fruit doesn’t have preservatives or additives they would be fine to eat.
hCG Food Shopping List
Depending on which hCG diet protocol you follow your list may vary, this is a general hcg diet food list. Check your hCG diet food list to determine what you can or can’t have.
Eating organic is the best way to do the hCG diet protocol, however it may be cost prohibitive. Dr. Simeons developed the hCG diet and wrote Pounds and Inches during a time when hormones and pesticides were not widely used. He was also in another country that has vastly different guidelines on foods. However, you can still loss weight without being organic. It may be slower but it is possible.
Lean Meats:
steak, ground beef, chicken breast, veal
Seafood:
crab, lobster, shrimp, prawns, whiting fish, tilapia, flounder, haddock and other lean white fish
Seasoning:
sea salt, thyme, basil, garlic, onion powder and others that you like
Veggies:
fresh or fresh frozen spinach, various lettuces, asparagus, broccoli, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, chard, beet greens, cabbage
Fruit:
apples, oranges, strawberries, lemons, red grapefruit
Misc:
Melba toast, salsa (no sugar added), organic apple cider, sugar substitutes, teas
hCG Diet Stallers and Craving Causers
There are some foods or additives that may cause people to stall on the hCG diet. YMMV because we are all individuals with different food sensitivities. You have to judge for yourself and observe how your body chemistry responds.
  • Splenda
  • Equal
  • Caffeine (in some, not all people)
  • Sugar alcohols
  • Ascorbic acid and or Citric Acid (found in sodas)
  • Egg yolks (arachidonic acid is found in the yolks)
  • Too many sodas
  • Too little water
  • Not having variety in foods

What's your opinion of the HCG Shakes? Can you really use those in the diet? I would think they'd have too much sugar?
@MzMika,

The same thing that happened to every other good diet when people are focused on making money vs. following the diet as outlined.  It's going to make more people fail vs. succeed.  I've watched it with Low Fat, Snackwells & Pre packaged foods; Low Carb, Atkins shakes and Pre packaged foods.  Stick to real foods that is what your body needs for fuel.

I LOVE to run and workout. Can I keep up with my normal routine on this diet?
@Betsy Miller,

Water retention will happend.  The manuscript is clear that's a no no.  Walking, Yoga, T-Tapp.

Thanksgiving is in a couple of days. I started hcg Nov-11-2011. I am doing well , I want to eat thanksgiving dinner .lose 10lbs. how will this one evening effect my hcg diet?
@Juanita R,

Do you remember your loading days?  Same effect.  Here is some ideas to do for Thanksgiving while on the hCG diet.

Ok I am stumped. Above you indicate you can have breakfast but it is not allowed on Phase I. I am concerned because I am a type 2 diabetic and taking all my diabetes meds on an empty stomach with only coffee allowed is a no no and not fun. Not to mention it's a long haul to wait from breakfast til lunch before I can eat anything so my sugar are going to 'blow a gasket' Any thoughts? thanks PS Also I was surfing the net and found a fellow who said he made his own HCG drops? Is that even possible (or safe?)Wouldnt dream of trying that considering what's in it? LOL
@Dina,

You can have tea, coffee, breadsticks, or make oatmeal out of Miracle Noodles.

why is breakfast prohibited and If I am starving every a.m can I eat my melbatoast, apple or an agg and not mess up the plan. or can I drink a diet soda or chew sugarless gum????
@jaynut ,

Breakfast isn't prohibited.  Do you have a copy of the manuscript or did you see Dr. Simeons hCG diet menu?  Coffee, Tea or you can have fruit, which may cause cravings.  BUT any food you can have for breakfast, lunch or dinner if you don't go above what he states in Pounds and Inches.  Soda and gum may cause you to stall.
