This article by Jennifer Cohen, Contributor Forbes.com, lists some bad eating habits to avoid. Follow these along with the hCG 1234 diet recommendations and you will be on your way to better health!
When you’re working long hours on the computer, running from one business lunch to the next and traveling nonstop, your diet and fitness goals sometimes get derailed in ways you don’t even think about. By running from one event to another and having days packed with meetings you may be unintentionally harming your health and keeping on extra weight. Here are 9 ways you may be sabotaging yourself without even realizing it. (more…)
From time to time, your body weight may fluctuate slightly as you ease into a pattern of healthy eating and active living following the use of hCG Diet products from Creative Bioscience. If you gain more than two pounds above the lowest weight you reached on the hCG 1234™ Diet, a Steak Day may help you return your initial low weight.
A Steak Day is where you do not eat or drink the entire day except for water and at dinner consume a large steak. That evening you can have either one apple or one tomato. To be effective, the Steak Day must be done on the same day you discover your weight gain.
If a gain of more than two pounds occurs during Phase 3 you may have consumed food that is not allowed on the hCG diet—foods containing sugars and starches, or your body may have a bad reaction to a food that was reintroduced causing intestinal swelling and water retention that manifests in weight gain. It is during this phase of the hCG 1234™ Diet that you will learn what foods your body does not digest well and must be avoided.

I don’t mind cooking but I dread trying to decide what to have for dinner every day! I have been using a weekly menu board to help me plan my meals. This has helped me to plan in advance so I have the ingredients on hand and I can focus on putting the meal together. I just use a dry erase board but I have found so many cute ones that I may have to upgrade my menu board! Here are some cute menu board ideas.
You may be thinking, only 500 calories?! But, in addition to the 500 calories you consume, your body is also burning stored fat and using it as energy. The hCG diet protocol along with hCG diet support products mobilize the fat from fat storage locations. While you are only consuming 500 calories and using proper hCG diet support products, your hypothalamus releases the fat stored in your body.
The hCG diet system uses key aminos and powerful herbal extracts to help keep your appetite under control and maintain a very low calorie diet on a daily basis. With the 500, 800, or 1200 calorie diets, you can lose weight quickly while still maintaining enough energy to function at normal capacity. The hCG diet protocol and hCG diet support products help release calories from stored fat, so in addition to the calories that you are eating your body can actually burn 2000 to 4000 calories per day.
Th hCG diet protocol with its famous Four Phases and allowed foods list was first suggested and perfected by Dr. Albert Simeons, who devised a diet protocol after the discovery of hCG’s ability to curb one’s appetite. The protocol that Dr. Simeons recommends is designed for serious weight loss, but essential to one’s success on the hCG diet. Read more about the original hCG protocol from Dr. Simeons’ manuscript, “Pounds and Inches.”
We have formulated HCG Zero as a hormone free dietary supplement. HCG Zero is comprised of the most powerful available amino acids to aid in weight loss. Zero Diets and Recipes follow the existing protocols designed by Dr Simeons, which are designed to help our clients feel nourished and energized. (more…)
The following diet charts created by Creative Bioscience will be very helpful for dieters during Phase 2 of the hCG 1234™ Diet. The chart will track your daily weight, remind you to take 10 drops three times each day, and keep track of your daily food intake.
The diet chart breaks down the foods dieters are allowed on the hCG diet into protein, veggies, bread, fruit, and beverages. To use the diet chart effectively mark the food serving with an L if you ate the food for lunch, D for dinner, 1 for first snack, and 2 for second snack.
This simple, effective tool will allow you to track your progress throughout your entire three week program. Doing a six week program? Print off a second sheet to track your next three weeks.
Although it isn’t mandatory, it is recommended that you do a lemonade colon cleanse for a minimum of ten days before starting the hCG diet. Here is a link to the instructions on how to do a lemonade colon cleanse http://www.hcg1234.com/blog. If you choose to do a different type of colon cleanse, your local health food store can recommend the proper product for you.
Beginning Phase 1:
For the first two days, start taking the hCG 1234™ drops by placing the drops under your tongue and hold them there for 60 seconds. Swallow the remaining liquid. Do not drink 10 minutes before or after taking drops. Do not eat 30 minutes before or after taking the drops.
You will need to take ten drops three times per day for a total of 30 drops per day. Take the drops once in the morning, 30 minutes before lunch, and then again 30 minutes before dinner.
During the first two days of taking the hCG 1234™ drops, you’ll need to eat as much high fat food as you possibly can. During these two days you are storing fat to be used as energy during Phase 2, the low calorie portion of the diet. Do not skip this step; your energy level will suffer if you do not do this step correctly.
The best foods to eat during Phase 1 are milk chocolate, pastries, ice cream, peanut butter, bread (with lots of butter), and pork products. Look for foods with high fat content. Don’t worry about the weight you gain during these first two days. This weight will be quickly lost during Phase 2.
