Learn what to expect, what to eat and how to make the most of your diet program by following the HCG Meal Plan
Loading is critical to your success. You must load effectively in order for this program to work quickly and efficiently. Keys to loading:For 2 days you need to take the HCG Ultra drops and eat foods like chocolate, fried foods, and fatty foods.Do not overeat. The types of foods you eat prepare your body for good signaling during the low calorie diet.Make sure and take the drops as directed on the bottle.
This is your weight loss phase. Here are the keys to maximum weight loss:Eat only approved foods. Do not overeat – if you are hungry eat more vegetables and protein. Do not skip meals. It is important to eat at each mealtime. If you are not very hungry at least eat lean protein.
After Phase 2 weight loss it is important to eat right for the next 180 days. Having succeeded in cleansing your body and losing a good amount of weight, your body is primed and ready to enter this last phase (Phase 3). As much as possible, stay away from starchy foods and sugar-filled foods including processed for the first two weeks after completing Phase 2 (except for your cheat day, which is explained below). Over time the body grows accustomed to a set regimen. As such, it’s advantageous to implement a cheat day. One day per week, we suggest you increase your calorie intake by 50 to 60 percent. This means that if you have been eating at a 1500-calorie level, you should increase it once a week to 2250 to 2400 calories. Remember; don’t go overboard with the refined and processed foods. It’s okay to eat some of those wonderful homemade oatmeal chocolate cookies, your favorite pizza or cheesecake, but keep it to a couple of cookies, a piece of pizza or an average piece of pie. This cheat day really does help. You will be surprised at how good this works.

First and foremost you will want to consume the appropriate amount of calories. Most people, including licensed dieticians, underestimate the amount of calories they are consuming. What is the right amount of calories to consume? Take your ideal weight and add a zero. This is the general rule and can be adjusted slightly in some cases. If your ideal weight is 220lbs then your new calorie amount should be 2,200 calories. If your ideal weight is 110lbs then you can eat approximately 1100 calories. Secondly, you need to better understand the difference in eating good carbs versus bad carbs. A good rule of thumb is to stay away from refined and processed foods. Bad carbs are usually distinguished best by their color – white. Typically, foods that are highly refined and or processed are high in calories and low in nutritional density. On the flip side, good carbs will provide better nutrition and fulfill your hunger needs for longer periods of time. Moreover, good carbs will better fuel your body and allow you to have more energy throughout your day. One way to measure what are ‘good carbs’ is by reading the nutritional profile of the carbohydrate section of the label. The best carbs are fibrous carbs. Fibrous carbs and green vegetables are full of fiber, nutrients and are low in calorie density. You normally can’t eat too much fibrous carbs and greens.
