Loading Phase :

The initial 2 days of the HCG weight loss therapy is called Loading Phase. In this stage, users have to eat high calorie food. Dieters have to Load as much food as he or she can, as this abnormal fat reserves will prepare the body to combat in the low calorie diet days.

  1. The original diet calls for 10 drops 3 times a day.
  2. You can gorge on fried chicken, pork, pizza, burger, butter cookies, beef pies, chocolate, rice and macaroni.
  3. Force-feeding is very crucial in this stage as it encourages the hypothalamus to burn more fat, even after the ending of loading days.

The 2 days of loading phases is followed by the 2nd HCG phase that is known as Maintenance Phase.

Maintenance Phase :

Maintenance Phase is not restricted to mere 21 protocol days but can be stretched till 40 days depending on your goal weight. In this phase, you are introduced with the 500 calorie diet (VLCD), one of the main aspects of this hormonal therapy.

For about 3 weeks, your body will get the very low calorie diet along with the combination of 10 drops three times a day. Now, this brilliant combination targets your abnormal fat banks that might be located in various parts of the body such as your chin, thighs, flabby arms, buttocks, hip and lower abdomen etc. HCG burns the abnormal fat bank and release energy into your blood stream that can range from 1500 to 4000 calories. So, this additional bulk energy coupled with 500 calorie resets your metabolism and melts the excessive fat from the body. It naturally makes you slim in few days.

  2. Please note: A minimum of 21 days is must on this phase even if you have few pounds to lose.
  3. The original diet calls for 10 drops 3 times a day.
  4. Maintain your weight by taking 500-calorie diet everyday.
  5. Do not consume sugar, starch and fried food items.
  6. You will not have hunger pangs as your body is getting adequate supply of calories from the localized fat banks.
  7. Incase of women, HCG drops can be resumed immediately after the menstruation along with VLCD.
  8. It strengthens your immune system.

Stabilization Phase :

The Stabilization Phase is the final phase where you could skip the drops. We strongly recommend a transition from the very low calorie diet to a controlled diet with moderate calorie restriction. But completely avoid sugar and starch to keep the weight stable. This would result in a daily fat intake of around 800 calories for women and 1,000 for men.

This phase is started under any one of the following conditions :

  1. It’s been 21 days or more on maintenance phase and you have reached your goal weight.
  2. It's been 40 days on Maintenance Phase.
  3. You have lost 34 pounds (15kgs) on maintenance phase.
