Welcome to the four different phases of the hCG 1234® diet. You're about to embark on an amazing weight loss journey and begin achieving some remarkable results, along with literally thousands of other people who have done the same. At hCG 1234®, we present you with four different phases of the diet in order to comply with the original Dr. Simeons hCG diet protocol. We believe that if you follow the four phases, you'll achieve the best results.

It may seem overwhelming at first. However, customers who do the hCG 1234® diet one step at a time testify to seeing the results they want almost instantaneously. The following information describes (in detail) the four different phase of the hCG 1234® diet.

3 Week Program:

Phase 1- Loading: Take the hCG 1234® Drops & eat high fat foods. (Days 1 – 2)
Phase 2 - Diet: Take the hCG 1234® Drops & begin the low calorie diet. (Days 3 – 23)
Phase 3 - Stabilization: No longer take the hCG 1234® Drops & begin increasing calories (with the same diet foods) and add just one “new” low calorie healthy food per day; monitoring your body’s reaction. (Days 24 – 44) If you wish to do another diet round start with Phase 1 – Loading again as before.
Phase 4 - Maintenance: Maintaining your weight loss when you’ve reached your goal. (Day 45 - Forever)

6 Week Program:

Phase 1 - Loading: Take the hCG 1234® Drops & eat high fat foods. (Days 1 - 2)
Phase 2 - Diet: Take the hCG 1234® Drops & begin the low calorie diet. (Days 3 - 44)
Phase 3 - Stabilization: No longer take the hCG 1234® Drops & begin increasing calories (with the same diet foods) and add just one "new" low calorie healthy food per day; monitoring your body’s reaction. (Days 45 – 65) If you wish to do another diet round start with Phase 1 – Loading again as before.
Phase 4 - Maintenance: Maintaining your weight loss when you’ve reached your goal. (Day 66 - Forever)

Phase 1: Taking the hCG 1234® Drops
(3 & 6 Week Programs | Days 1 – 2)

Although it isn't mandatory, it is recommended that you do a lemonade colon cleanse for ten days. We have excellent cleanse products that can be used with the hCG protocol; but if you choose to do a different type of colon cleanse, your local health food store can recommend a proper product for you, should you choose to do so.

For the first two days, start taking the hCG 1234® drops:
  1. Place the drops under your tongue and hold them there for 60 seconds. Swallow the remaining liquid.

    Note: Be sure to take ten drops, three times per day, for a total of 30 drops. Once in the morning, 30 minutes before lunch, and then again 30 minutes before dinner.

  2. During the first two days of taking the hCG 1234® drops, you'll also need to eat as much high fat food as you possibly can. Load exclusively on high fat foods (pork products, full fat dairy, nuts, peanut butter, avocados, fried foods, etc.) Loading with mostly carbohydrates and sugars isn't beneficial and will cause problems early in the program with hunger and slower weight loss. You'll be storing fat to be used as energy during the low calorie portion of the diet (described later). Don't skip this step; your energy level will suffer if you do.

Phase 2: Starting the Low Calorie Diet
(3 week program | Days 3 – 23)
(6 week program | Days 3 – 44)

  1. On the third day, you'll begin the low calorie diet of 1200-1500 calories per day. Continue the low calorie diet for 3 weeks (if you're trying to lose 15 to 20 pounds), or 6 weeks (if you're trying to lose 34 to 40 pounds). Weigh yourself every morning when you wake up. Be sure to take accurate body measurements when you start and continue taking them throughout the program.

  2. Eat only the foods from the following list. No variations are allowed. If an item is not on the list, then don't eat it!

    Note: Some doctors and clinics make substitutions, but we recommend sticking to the original diet protocol exactly in order to get the best your results.

    Vegetarian Help Note: The diet instructions for vegetarians are exactly the same except for protein. You can either have skim milk, non-fat cottage cheese, or plain non-fat yogurt. If you eat fish, then you can also have the whitefish, shrimp and lobster that are permitted in the original protocol. Some vegetarians have also found success with firm or extra firm tofu and tofu 'miracle noodles'. Another daily protein suggestion is 4 - 6 egg whites.

    Protein:

    Chicken (white meat only) White fish (tilapia, halibut, cod, etc)
    Shrimp Extra lean ground beef
    Steak (no marbling; all fat removed) Lobster
    Crab Scallops
    Turkey (white meat only) Tuna (Canned in water)

    You'll need to remove all of the fat from the meat and weigh it before cooking. Don't use oils to cook the meat, and avoid using spices containing sugar.

    Vegetables:

    Lettuce Onions
    Cucumbers Spinach
    Tomatoes Chard
    Celery Fennel
    Red radishes Asparagus
    Cabbage Chicory
    Beet greens  

    You can make a salad using a few different vegetables just be sure to accurately calculate your portion sizes and the corresponding calories. However, it's recommended you have just one item at a time for ease of digestion and better results.

    Fruit: (Two servings per day)

    Apple Orange
    Grapefruit Strawberries
    Blueberries

    You can disperse the allotted food throughout the day as you choose. Having well-rounded meals is the best way to achieve your goal.

    Bread: (Two servings per day)

    Melba Toast Grissini Breadsticks
    Ak Mak Crackers Wasa "Lite" Crackers

    Beverages:

    You can consume unlimited amounts of the following:
    (Consume at least 3 liters of water every day in addition to the other "free" beverages)

    Black Coffee Water (distilled is best)
    Sparkling Water (Pellegrino, Perrier) Tea (self-brewed, plain black or green tea only)

    Sweeteners:

    • Stevia
    • Saccharin (Sweet 'N Low)
    • (Aspartame, Sucralose (Splenda) and regular sugar is are not allowed.

    Spices and Seasonings

    You can use any spice you want, just be sure it doesn't contain sugar. Salt and pepper are allowed. Be sure to read the ingredients of everything you consume. Even a minor intake of something that isn't allowed can slow down your diet considerably.

    Note: You can have gum, just be sure it is flavored with xylitol(a natural sweetener). Most brands of gum use aspartame, which is not allowed.

    Phase 3: Stabilization
    (3 week program | Days 24 – 44)
    (6 week program | Days 45 – 65)

    You can now begin to add more food back into your diet, one new item each day. Just be sure to avoid sugar and starch for 3 weeks. It's best to add foods back in one at a time so you can see how your body reacts to each item. You can have dairy, nuts, a few fats and oils, but beware of extra-sweet fruit along with starches and sugars during this phase.

    Once you have successfully stabilized your weight, you are ready to add normal foods back into your diet, including bread and other starchy foods like potatoes (in moderation, of course). You can also eat food containing sugar (again, in moderation). At this point in the diet, you will have developed a taste for healthy foods. It should also be much easier for you to make good eating decisions based on your knowledge of how your body responds to certain foods.

    You'll still need to continue to weigh yourself every morning, and if you ever go two pounds above your lowest achieved weight, a steak day will put you back on track. Just keep in mind that it is important to do the steak day on the same day as the gain. Otherwise it isn't as effective. You should be able to maintain your new weight forever by following this simple system.

    A steak day is where you don't consume anything all day except water. For dinner, you'll eat a large steak. Later on that evening, you can either have one apple or one tomato.

    The following morning, you should be back within two pounds of your lowest achieved weight. This is how you keep yourself from gaining back all the weight you lost earlier in Phase 2: Starting the Low Calorie Diet.

    During Phase 3: Stabilization, you'll learn which foods your body doesn't digest well, and should be avoided to prevent weight gain in the future.

    Phase 4: Keeping Your Weight Off
    (3 week program | Days 45 – Forever)
    (6 week program | Days 66 – Forever)

    Did you know that habits (both good and bad) are made and broken in a 14-day time period? During your experience of the previous phases of the hCG 1234® diet, no doubt you may have created some new and healthy eating habits. At this point you may feel better physically and mentally than you ever have before. In addition, you may discover a new self-confidence, and a new you! If you go right back to eating the wrong types of foods, chances are you'll find yourself feeling sick, and you'll soon realize that your body actually craves healthier foods.

    The hCG 1234® Diet is all about making a change in your lifestyle. Sure, losing weight is a part of that change, but the key is to lose weight and keep it off, forever. Take time to educate yourself on the causes of obesity, and surround yourself with people who also share the same goals as you do. You can also consult your physician or other professionals that will help you stay on the right path to stay happy and healthy for the rest of your life.
