What Is the Original Plan?
The original as outlined in Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches manuscript consisted of a specific very low calories, 500, and daily injections of hCG for a specified number of days.
The eating plan specified the exact amount of protein and carbs you could eat. He didn't believe in mixing vegetable carbs and didn't allow fats on to be eaten nor on your skin. This essentially cut out face creams and lotions made with most fats and oils.
Dr. Simeons original protocol did not use the term phases or have any phases associated with it. The term hCG Diet Phase was introduced by Kevin Trudeau to define the beginning and the end of the distinct time frames and rules associated with those time frames while on the protocol.
How Much Food Is Allowed?
While on protocol you are allowed to have
- 100 grams, 3.5 ounces, of protein 2 times per day
- precooked weight of meat
- 2 servings of Vegetables per day
- no specified servings of approved vegetables
- most people have 2 cups of vegetables per meal
- precooked weight of vegetables
- not mixed
- 2 Servings of Fruits per day
- servings are small or handful of the allowed fruits
- 2 Servings of Breads per day
- Melba Toast
- Grissini Breadsticks
- This are the ONLY breads allowed
- Water: 64 ounces at a minimum per day, 2 liters ideal.
- Milk: 1 tablespoon daily
That is what the original looks like. A general rule of thumb is, if the food isn't on the list do not eat it.
How Many Days Is the Dr. Simeons Original Protocol?
There are 2 paths you can follow for rapid weight reduction while on the program. The choices are based on how much weight you have to lose.
26 Days Protocol if you have 25 pounds or less to loss.
42 Day Protocol if you have 25 pounds or more to lose.
Each plan ends on a specific date for your chosen weight reduction plan and you move into Stabilization for 3 weeks/21 days where you are not allowed to have SUGAR or STARCH.
During Stabilization you have to monitor your morning weight daily and not go over 2 pounds of your last injection day. IF they do, they have they should skip breakfast and lunch and only have a huge steak and apple or tomato for dinner.
If you have more to lose then you will wait for a few weeks between rounds as to not become immune to the effects of your injections, drops or pills.
This is what is called a mini maintenance and the schedule is as follows:
hCG DIET ROUND
The above schedule includes the 3-week Stabilization. Dr. Simeon's designed the mini maintenance to overcome 2 obstacles;
2. Reduce any hardships from dieting.
This approach allows you to be flexible thus you can plan around holidays, vacations, birthday and other events in your life.
What Does a Typical Phase or Round Look Like While I'm on Protocol?
- Are your Loading Days where you will eat all the FAT foods you want.
- You starting taking your drops, shots or pills during this time
Days 3-23 (for 26 Day diet plan) or Days 3-39 (for 42 Day plan)
- Continue taking your drops, shots or pills
- Eat your 500 VLCD as outlined above.
Days 24-26 (for 26 Day diet plan) or Days 40-42 (for 42 Day plan)
- NO more hCG
- Continue to eat 500 calories for the last 3 days.
Day 27 or 43 you will follow the Stabilization and increase your caloric intake to 1,200 per day. Keeping daily track of your weight.
Special Note for the 43 Day plan
You will take Sundays off from your injections, pills or drops. You can choose another day but you will continue to eat 500 calories on the NO Hormone Day. Dr. Simeons recommends this to avoid immunity when doing the longer program of 43 days.
How Do I know If I've Built Immunity to the Hormone?
If you have built immunity you will be constantly be hungry even with increased dosages. IF that occurs call your health professional and they will instruct you on how to ease yourself off or prescribe an appetite suppressant to ease you off and into the next phase.
How Much Weight Can I lose?
The average hCG weight loss is 1 pound a day. Some people, typically men, experience a more rapid loss during their protocol than others.
But always remember if you are not losing weight from the scale, you should be losing inches from the tape measure. Scale reduction may not show up right away.
This occurs because your bodies fat cells are storing water in the empty fat cells. This is something you cannot control, but can be very frustrating when you are actively dieting and not seeing the scale move down.
Your fat cells holding water is temporary and shortly, within a few days, your body will dump the water at once and you will see a big drop in the scale.
This is why some people may see faster drop in pounds some days and seem stagnate others. But it can look like this:
- 2 pounds
- 3 pounds
- 0 pounds
- 0 pounds
- 0 pounds
- 5 pounds
- .1/2 pound
- 1/4 pound
- 1 pound
Do not get frustrated or think the hormone isn't working. IT IS WORKING. Just know what is going on within your body and continue the diet plan.
