The HCG Homeopathic Diet was designed by Dr Simeon in the 1950’s. The diet is designed to allow your body to use its own fat stores as fuel and to achieve rapid weight loss without hunger. The program allows you to detox in a natural way and reset your metabolism.
Dr Simeon figured out that the body has three types of fat, structural, normal reserve fat and abnormal fat. He figured out a way to get the body to move the abnormal fat and not the other essential types of fat.
There are 4 phases to the HCG program which I have set out below.
All of the phases are important, not just the weight loss phase. The idea of the program is to reset your hypothalamus and your metabolism so the weight loss can stick for the rest of your life.
|Phase 1 – LOADING||2 days||Begin taking HCG drops. Eat until you are full with high fat, high calorie foods. Aim for high fat foods rather than high carbohydrate foods.|
|Phase 2 – REDUCING||14 – 40 days||Continue to take HCG drops and follow the 500 calories eating plan. It is vital to follow this strictly with no exceptions.|
|Phase 3 – TRANSITION||3 days||Stop taking HCG drops but continue on with 500 calorie eating plan.|
|Phase 4 – MAINTENANCE||14 – 40 days||Maintenance is important to stabilise your new weight. It is time to listen to your body and hunger signals. Maintenance phase must equal time spent on Phase 2|
