Cleanse for Constipation

Below is the Humus Cure for Constipation while on the Diet from Nova Clinic, the manufacturer of the Skinny Patch! Enjoy this tip!

It is essential to have regular bowel cleansing while dieting, obviously. Sometimes clients will go through a detoxification period where they may have diarrhoea – this could be releasing toxic sludge that has been there for years – this is obviously a good thing.


If a client does experience regular constipation and tha

t is not uncommon when dieting, I suggest the following recipe.
This MUST be home made, store brought humus is loaded with oil and sesame seeds and must not be used.
Our recipe can be eaten every day, load onto a piece of toast or a crisp-bread.

CROCKPOT GRANOLA – Basic Breakfast mix.

A Basic Mix, ready for your add-ins! 

4 cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats Bob’s Red Mill 72 Calories per serving

1/2 cup Nuts, Almonds Raw 14 Calories per serving

4 Egg, White Raw, Fresh 3 Calories per serving

1/2 tsp Salt, Table 0 Calories per serving

1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice 0 Calories per serving

1/2 cup Truvia Baking Blend Truvia 12 Calories per serving

Place all dry ingredients in the crock pot. Stir with a wooden spoon. Add Egg white and stir again. If you like your granola clumpy, you can ball up some, but if you like it finer, break up the clumps. 

Put cover on crock and set for 4 hours on high. 

Check at three hours later to stir. You will have accumulated moisture on your lid. Keep it from falling back into the granola. Leave the lid off for the remaining hour.  Test for crunchiness! 

Separate  into 1/4 cup  individual bags or store in an air-tight container. 

I add 1/4 cup or less to a little yogurt or I might put a couple of teaspoons over my spiced apples.

I have used 85 % dark chocolate, dried cranberries, fresh apple and pecans as add-ins or substitutions at various times. I prefer the dried fruit to be added in the last hour, as I find it becomes too dry. Fresh fruit is moist and requires a much longer cooking time. The dark chocolate was best added in late, in my opinion; however, my daughter preferred the chocolate-coated oats.

If you would like to add or take away any ingredients, check the nutritional information at  VeryWell Fit

Long Term Diet and Super Patch Use

With the Super Patch, I do not have to pause between cycles of dieting and loading. I can wear the patch long term without harm or fear of overdose. I do not become less responsive to the ingredients in the Super Patch. They continue to work, averaging a half pound of loss every day. I do not have to reload with high fat foods. I can continue to eat the lower fat foods that I have always preferred.

With homeopathic transdermal hcg, there is no worry that I will lose too much. My skin is an organ and it will reject anything there is too much of, or that isn’t recognized as beneficial. Besides that, as Dr. Simeons explains in his HCG diet book, Pounds and Inches, HCG re-positions fat or it expels it. Some users have not lost ANY weight using HCG and the HCG diet, but their bodies HAVE transformed into lean but healthy forms. I saw Dr. Simeon’s book and read about the emaciated lady. I could relate!

The HCG patch from Nova can be worn for many months, even indefinitely. The ingredients of the HCG patch are included in the SUPER PATCH. Below is an outline of what can be found on the Nova Clinic website regarding long term use of the HCG Patch:

Long Term Nova Diet: 4th week and ongoing for as long as you like, while you use the Nova HCG Patches

Note this diet has been put together by the Nova Clinic, trialled over 8 months and it will give you ALL of the nutrients you need to be healthy, active, lose weight ongoing and not be hungry.

You will get enough protein, iron, fats, calcium, vitamins and minerals. All vegetables, legumes and fruit give you all of the nutrients you need. And no starches are NOT fattening, are full of vitamins and minerals, are a vegetable and they fill you up.

The only thing you may want to do is have use our 12 Vitamins B’s patch as well [wear one a week, or for 3 days only, ok to miss a week] as Vit.B12 is the only thing this diet does not give you.

NO – Avocados, sugar, junk food, fats, all oils, nuts and seeds, butter, protein powder, coconut, olives.

Cut out completely for now, you can pick up later if you really want  to – dairy products which include all cows milk and products, cream, cheese, cow-milk yogurt, butter, ice cream.

Cut out or make very minimum – all meat, all poultry, all fish.

DO eat –Tons of all vegetables including potatoes, sweet potatoes, all colour vegetables [especially green leafy vegetables and green beans] in large quantities. Greens the biggest share. Garlic, spices, salt & pepper. Rice, brown is best.Fruit, any fruit 2-3 pieces a day. Non-dairy yogurt if desired. Rice cakes and/or real wholemeal bread. Rolled oats. Cans ready cooked, or home made beans and legumes. Mashed potatoes – use some of the water they are cooked in to mash [as that is full of vitamins] use a little rice milk and salt & pepper. Rice milk is the closest to cows milk in creamy texture and taste – and its a real food that you can use and it won’t make you fat. Butter replacement – to use a little butter on your bread use nutalex (by butter in supermarket fridge). Be sensible only use a little. Baked potatoes, sweet potatoes and vegetables Rice and stir fried vegetables Home made hummus – no tahini added.

Note: Beans, legumes and lentils, no more than 1/2 cup per day total.

Have three meals a day, with eating starches you will not be hungry between meals and you will look forward to all meals.

SCOUR the internet and utube for diet recipes with starches, beans and lentils, and vegetables – tons of variety – you will find your favourites.

There are even great desserts using beans that taste like chocolate cake. Read all labels if you buy canned make sure there is no oil.

An example of what I eat in a day (Jen Nova)

  • Breakfast: Bowl of fruit salad
  • Snack : Brownie made of black beans – yum.
  • Lunch: Large bowl of home made Vegetable soup and 2 pieces of wholesale toast or stir fry vegetables and rice.
  • Dinner: Very large plate mashed potato and four types of vegetables – steamed.

It takes a little time to get this all together so be patient with yourself. There were 18 of us on the long term trial and we all lost fat and inches from all of the body – every one was different so there are no set time frames so no stress.

The HCG Diet Protocol

Below is a copy of what I read in Dr. Simeon’s

Below is a copy of what I read in Pounds and Inches regarding what to eat while using HCG:

THE DIET

Breakfast:Tea or coffee in any quantity without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk allowed in 24 hours. Saccharin or Stevia may be used.
Lunch:1. 100 grams of veal, beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp. All visible fat must be carefully removed before cooking, and the meat must be weighed raw. It must be boiled or grilled without additional fat. Salmon, eel, tuna, herring, dried or pickled fish are not allowed. The chicken breast must be removed from the bird.2. One type of vegetable only to be chosen from the following: spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage.3. One breadstick (grissino) or one Melba toast.4. An apple or a handful of strawberries or one-half grapefruit.
Dinner :The same four choices as lunch.

Dr. Simeons adds: 

The juice of one lemon daily is allowed for all purposes. Salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic, sweet basil, parsley, thyme, marjoram, etc., may be used for seasoning, but no oil, butter or dressing. Tea, coffee, plain water, or mineral water are the only drinks allowed, but they may be taken in any quantity and at all times. In fact, the patient should drink about 2 liters of these fluids per day. Many patients are afraid to drink so much because they fear that this may make them retain more water. This is a wrong notion as the body is more inclined to store water when the intake falls below its normal requirements.

The above is all taken into account after a fat loading phase (phase 1 or p1) of two days. Dr. Simeons suggests eating as much fat-laden food as possible in order to prime the release of fat. It stands to reason, in my opinion, that the fat you place in your body from day-to-day is the fat that will be burned, first. With a low-fat diet, the body obviously start to release old and un-needed fat.  On the Super Patch, I lost fat where I had last gained it. On the other hand, fasting without HCG or the Super Patch caused me to lose mostly collagen, water, and fat around my bones (knuckles, ankles and wrists) and from my chest. My conclusion based on my own experience was that it is NOT that low calorie diet that caused the proper fat loss. Only with the Super Patch and HCG protocol did I lose fat from truly fatty places of my body. Starving caused me to appear gaunt, frail and sickly. With the Super Patch, I personally look quite healthy!
