hCG Diet Phase 2
hCG Diet Phase 2 is the meat of the this protocol. This is the part where you retrain your hypothalamus to store fat normally, increase your metabolism, and reset your body's comfortable weight.
It's important that you follow the plan as closely as possible. The point of this site is for information and encouragement. You may have weak moments. I surely did. If you do, get right back to the plan. You may see a slow down in weight loss, but after a short while it will resume to the 1/2 to 2 lbs per day.
If you find yourself cheating often, you really have to question if this is what you really want to do and are you willing to make the sacrafice needed to improve your overall health.
I am here to tell you that this can be done!
hCG Diet Phase 2:
500 Calorie + hCG Phase (Days 3-23)
500 Calorie Diet Food Plan
For the hCG Diet Phase 2
Your can eat 2 meals a day. Each meal will contain 1/2 cup of protein(100 grams or 3.5 oz), 2 cups of veggies, and 1 fruit. You can also have 1 Melba toast or 1 Grissini Bread stick per meal. You can substitute three rice crackers for melba toast and grissini bread stick with each meal if you have a wheat allergy.
The protein you choose to eat should be low in fat using the leanest cuts of meat. If fat is visible, you must remove it before cooking.
You can cook the protein however you like but NO FRYING! Also, no additional fat or oil may be used in cooking.
I either baked the meat or I cooked in a skillet with water or organic chicken stock bought from the store.
- grass-fed beef
- grass-fed lean ground beef (cook thoroughly and rinse with a colander)
- buffalo - Really Good
- venison or other wild game
- chicken breast
Vegetables are important in this diet or any diet. You should always include veggies with your meals now and when you are done.
What's important about eating vegetables is not to mix them. Eat one vegetable with a meal. The only exception is tomatoes and onions. You can mix these.
Some people(so I have read) are fine with mixing vegetables. I did not. If you do try mixing and your weight loss slows down...Stop immediatley! Avoid starchy vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, corn, any type of squash, beets, peas, and sweet potatoes. Also avoid legumes of any kind. That's right no beans either.
- Swiss chard
- mustard greens
- collard greens
- beet greens
- green salad
- tomatoes Limit to one per day!
- red radishes, cucumbers
hCG Diet Phase 2 and Breakfast
What about Breakfast?
I know I asked. Dr. Simeons original protocol said NO Breakfast. The protocol allowed as much water, tea, or coffee as you wanted. You should be drinking AT LEAST half your body weight in ounces of liquid. So if you weigh 250lbs, you should drink 125 ounces of water, tea, etc. The more the better.
The only allowed sweetener is Stevia!. Stevia is a natural sweetener that you can definitely find in health food stores and many grocery stores are beginning to carry them. There many flavors available, so get creative.
What if I can't get by without breakfast?
If you absolutely have to eat something for breakfast you can eat one of your fruits from either lunch or dinner for breakfast. I have also read that you can split the lunch portion of meat and eat that for breakfast as well. Altering the diet this way still keeps you around or below 500 calories. Again if you see that the weight loss is slowing down, go back to the original plan.
