Personal Care During HCG Diet

The key to success in HCG diet is to follow a disciplined lifestyle. Throughout the diet period, you have to restrict your eating and consume only low calorie foods. All kinds of edibles which contain fats should strictly be avoided. However, the dieters often forget that fat can be absorbed in the body through different channels. You must remember that fats can be deposited through skin pores as well.

The Simeons’ protocol strictly prohibits all kinds of oil based products. The cosmetics which contain oils or any other fatty substance should not be applied during the VLCD days. However, the water based and mineral based products can go on. Moreover, you have to be extra careful to make sure that oil/fat doesn’t get into your body through your hands. You should wear latex gloves while you are cooking some fat containing edibles or oiling someone else’s hair.

Sublingual HCG is much more preferred to other forms. The homeopathic drops are considered safe from all kinds of side effects. FDA allows their purchase without prescription. The drops are easy to administer. Since they are pre-diluted, it takes only five minutes to get dissolved in the blood. The GreenHCG drops are premixed with vitamin B12 and Mag Phos cell salt. Therefore, no dietary supplement is required with them.
