We didnt create HCG in a lab. In fact, this miracle hormone comes straight from the human body.

Born and bred in a little town called London, Albert Simeons was the first scientist to connect the dots between human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and weight loss.With years full of extensive research and honors in Europe, Dr. Simeons eventually made his way to India in the early 1930s. For 18 years, he studied a broad range of topics, including pregnancy, obesity, and disorders of the glands. It was during his studies that he made a surprising discovery: overeating isnt at the root of obesity. In fact, Dr. Simeons came to firmly believe that eating habits had little or nothing to do with the body holding onto weight.

Dr. Simeons findings made him passionate about the growing obesity problem. More and more, he saw the need for a weight loss solution that actually worked. Yearning to treat the increasing problem of obesity, Dr. Simeons remembered something he had observed during his time in India. It was there Dr. Simeons discovered how the HCG hormone helped disperse bad fat from around the hip and stomach region in several young male subjects.

Knowing he was onto something big, Dr. Simeons accelerated his research. His findings indicated the HCG hormone stimulated bad stored fat. This caused the body to move the stored fat. Once stored fat was being moved by the body from its location, Dr. Simeons realized a restricted calorie diet would then force the fatalready in motionfor fuel, leading to rapid weight loss. As he experimented with the hormone, he saw weight immediately dropping from his patients! Additionally, the hormone decreased his patients appetites. This caused their stored fat to vanish.

Eventually, though more research and testing, Dr. Simeons developed a diet protocol to maximize the weight-loss potential of the HCG hormone. He created a list of approved foods, and the HCG Diet was born.

The HCG Diet has come a long way since Dr. Simeons discovery in the 1950s. After spending decades being tested and refined, the HCG Diet is ready for the public. The result is nothing less than miraculous. People who have struggled with obesity for an entire lifetime are now losing weight they never thought theyd be able to shed.

The HCG diet is real. It comes from a lifetime of extensive research. Follow the protocol and discover how your body can return to its proper weight within a mere few weeks.

Part of the miracle of the HCG Diet is how simple it is. The entire diet can be divided into three simple phases.

Days 1-2: For the first two days, begin taking the HCG drops three times a day (before breakfast, lunch and dinner). Do not eat or drink anything 15 minutes before or after taking HCG drops. Using the oral syringe provided with your HCG package, drop 0.38 ml of HCG under your tongue and hold for at least 15 seconds before swallowing. (The oral syringe provided by HCGDiet.com will actually have 0.38 ml measured out and marked with a line.)

The next 48 hours is all about eating full portion servings of high fat foods. This may include: eggs, avocados, butter, yogurt, dairy, nuts, seeds, etc. If you have any cravings for high fat food, now is the time to get them out of your system. Fill up on anything with high fat content!

Two days of fat loading may seem like an unnecessary step, but its actually quite crucial. The fat loading phase stocks normal fat cells and prepares the body to burn abnormal fat, resulting in fast weight loss. Dont skip these two days!

Days 3-23 (26 day kit), Days 3-37 (40 Day kit) or Days 3-13 (Mini kit): After youve sufficiently stuffed yourself with high fat foods, its time to move on to a much healthier and thinner life style. By now, youve probably realized how well the HCG serves as an appetite suppressant (in fact, many people talk about how hard it is to load up on fat when they dont feel hungry). Cutting calories should be something you look forward to!

As Phase 2 begins, continue taking the HCG drops three times per day. Its also time to begin the 500 calorie diet explained in depth on page 7. The length of this phase will vary based on how much weight you want to lose and which diet kit youre using.

Days 24-26 (26 Day kit), Days 38-40 (40 Day kit) or Days 14-16 (Mini kit): During the last three days of the HCG Diet, you will continue the 500 calorie diet protocol, but stop taking the drops. It will take up to three days for the HCG to pass out of your system. The next step, the Maintenance Phase, is a very important step to maintaining your new weight!

By this phase of the HCG Diet, youve learned how simple it is to eat healthy foods without relying on excess fat and sugar for flavor. The purpose of the maintenance phase is to train your body to remain at its new weight and prepare for the reintroduction of starches into your diet. During this phase, you should only be consuming a maximum of 1500 calories per day. You will typically eat breakfast

Part of what gives the HCG Diet its miraculous fat-burning power is the HCG Diet protocol, a specific lists of approved foods developed by Dr. Simeon. Here is a list of guidelines to follow when youre on Phase 2 of the HCG diet.

Tea or Coffee in any quantity without sugar*One tablespoon of milk is allowed per day. Use it here if youd like!*You may also sweeten with the all natural sweetener Stevia! It comes in a variety of wonderful flavors to brighten up your morning!

100 grams of any of the following meats for each meal:VealBeefChicken BreastFresh White FishLobster, Crab or Shrimp1 whole egg plus 3 egg whitesFat free cottage cheeseOne type of vegetable to be chosen from the following for each meal:SpinachChardChicoryBeet-greensGreen SaladTomatoesCeleryFennelOnionsRed radishesCucumbersAsparagusCabbage

Any reasonable portion of vegetables is allowed. Do not combine vegetables during the same meal.

Use chewing gum. HCGdiet.com has a variety of delicious approved flavors of chewing gum to keep your mouth busy at all times!Take a good multi-vitamin.Use Aspirin/Advil if you really need it!Space your meals out. Have a breadstick and an apple for breakfast if youd like! Just be sure to stick to the guidelines.Keep hydrated. The water will help push out all the toxins and other waste.Follow the phases precisely. Its simple: The closer you follow the protocol, the more weight you will lose.Weigh your meat in a raw state. Be sure to trim all the fat off before cooking as well!Take your provided B-Vitamin supplement once a day or as needed.Use Stevia for all your sweetening needs.Buy organic when possible. Its always smart to buy foods that are grown without pesticides and other dangerous chemicals.Have fun with spices! Mix up a dish by adding a different seasoning or spice.Use fresh herbs. Its amazing what fresh herbs can add to an otherwise bland dish.Make your own broths when possible. That way you know exactly what goes into them.

Dont cheat. Every time you veer off the diet, (even if its a small detour) you will be setting yourself back by several days.Try new food choices on the diet. Stick to the exact foods laid out for you and you will succeed. Mix ingredients. Remember, only one kind of fruit, vegetable and protein at a time.Skip any of the phases. All three phases are here for a reason. They are your roadmap to success!Engage in heavy exercise during the second phase. Your body will not have enough fuel for it! Stick to light exercising such as Yoga or walking. If you would rather, skip it all together during this phase.

Add a glass or two of green tea daily. Dont eat more than one apple a day, cut down apple size, or cut out apples all together.Cut beef down or out.Make up a couple of meals ahead of time.Check all condiments for sugar.Leave out one or both breadsticks or Melba toasts.Dont eat out.No diet drinks or cheats!Evaluate your beauty products usage.Stay positive!

Most people will eventually hit a plateau while on the HCG diet (a plateau is a period of several days where you dont lose any weightan interruption of your normal weight loss). These weight loss interruptions happen for a variety of reasons. For instance, everyone has variations in the retention and elimination of water. Or a womans menstrual cycle can hit, resulting in a few days without weight loss.

Dr. Simeons explains that a plateau will always correct itself; however, it is permissible to break it up with an apple day. Other mild plateau breakers or weight loss aids are listed below.

Protein Morning: Sometimes our bodies stall because we just need a little more protein. This is the option we recommend to try first. Add a protein breakfast to the regular diet protocol by eating a whole egg and 2-3 egg whites with your normal breakfast. Remember, NO butter or oils while on the protocol. It is common when eating egg whites to overdo it on the sodium. Make sure to keep up on the water.

Apple Day: An apple day begins at lunch and continues until just before lunch the next day. Eat at least 6 large apples throughout the day and only drink enough water to quench your thirst.

Apple Cider Vinegar Drink: Stir 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in one large glass of water, and then add Stevia to taste. Drink with a straw. This can be taken in any quantity.
