As part of Phase 1, it is important that you “load” correctly, meaning that you eat enough food for the first 2 days, you must eat foods rich in calories, very high in fat and in sugar content. There is no limit on the number of calories or the types of foods that you eat. Sweets, cookies, ice cream, fried foods, etc. They are all accepted foods. Phase I is a very important part of the diet. It is common for people to gain from 1 kilo to a kilo and a half in the first two days. Do not worry, you will lose everything in the next 48 hours. Even if you are loaded correctly or not, it will be lowered later so better you eat a lot in the first two days of phase 1.
HCG Diet Phase 2
Start day 3 of the diet. He must still feel completely satisfied on the third day due to his “loading” days. This is the day that you start eating a strict diet of 500 calories as you were said. We must emphasize that you need to drink water constantly. You should drink at least three liters of water a day. This will help to expel all the accumulated toxins that are stored in your body. People who do not drink enough water may experience headaches as their body releases stored fats and toxins. You can take an aspirin, paracetamol or Ibuprofen if you experience headaches. You will experience some hunger during days 4-7. This is common, but it will happen while the HCG is incorporated into your system and begins to suppress your appetite.
HCG Diet Phase 3
Phase 3 is the most important phase when it comes to maintaining lost weight. The purpose of Phase 3 is to restore your metabolism to help you continue to burn calories at a higher level. Phase 3 lasts 3 weeks from the last day that was injected. Once you reach the end of Phase 2 (either day 22 or day 41) you will stop applying the injections. However, you will continue to consume only 500 calories a day for 3 more days. This will give your body time to metabolize the HCG in your body. After the third day without the injections, you can increase your calorie intake. You will notice in those days that you are not hungry anymore.
According to the manuscript of Dr. Simeóns, you can eat as much as you like. Stay away from starches and sugars. Simple sugars will confuse your metabolism. Keep eating lots of protein, and healthy fruits and vegetables. Slowly integrate healthy fats, such as avocados, healthy oils such as olive oil or grape seed oil (please use sparingly). Take care of your weight. As you weigh yourself daily, if you notice that you have gained more than1 Kg. skip meat one day. Measure the consumption of carbohydrates. Increase your exercise regimen
