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!

How I feel: the HCG diet & Super Patch

My Daughter and I started the Super Patch together: 

How I felt on the HCG diet & Super Patch

I never got a headache as some report. My daughter didn’t get a headache until it was the 4th day of her first patch. She replaced the patch, drank water and rested. The headache subsided.

I noticed she also stopped making trips to the refrigerator to look inside. Obviously, she had become hungry as the patch was wearing off. Because the patch isn’t cumbersome like drops, it is easy to stick it and forget it. 

A month’s supply is 12 patches. Technically, that covers 36 days. But, I wore two patches to jump-start into phase 2 – without the loading phase (phase 1). Reloading or double patching was not necessary afterward. Though if I were to begin feeling hungry or getting a hunger-headache that won’t subside, I would choose to put on a second patch. Usually, this only happens at the beginning of the protocol. It hasn’t happened to me!

The Nova Patch ingredients stay in my system for 12 hours after I remove the patch. For the first two weeks, I itched in areas near my glands. The Super Patch and the water seemed to be flushing out toxins!

“Hot Sauna Showers” helped me. I felt a little sick a couple of times. I added some sugar free electrolyte powder (generic brand)  to my water and felt much better. I lost almost 3 lbs per day during the first 3 days of this toxin-flush! It was worth it!

Each day, seeing the scale read a lower number is encouraging and THAT makes me feel great! Even if it is only half a pound, I am excited!

My daughter prefers to weigh weekly as she likes seeing big losses. She got to say, “I lost 13 pounds this week!” as she emerged from the room.

I know. Wow! That’s how she felt, too.

Both of us are still going. Now, I have other family members using the patch, but I’m most impressed with my “foodie” daughter who claimed not to have any will power whatsoever.

To Load or Not to Load

Dr. Simeon’s protocol requires Fat loading to ‘prime’ the fat release process. However, I learned that many people prefer NOT to load with high-fat foods for the first two days of the Super Patch.  I chose that method.

 I placed TWO patches on my belly in the beginning and left both patches on. I placed 1 in the morning on the first day and 1 in the morning of the second day. I started and continued with a low calorie and low fat diet to jump right in. I took off patch #1 on the 3rd day and patch #2 was replaced on the 4th day.

On the other hand, my daughter chose to load as a “last hurrah” and she placed only 1 patch  on the first day and ate pizza, cheese, sausage, buttery eggs and avocado for 2 days. The third day she embarked on the low calorie diet (and felt too sick to eat hardly anything anyway).

We chose differently but we both had good weight loss results.
