I am starting the HCG diet and I was wondering if I can eat the diet frozen dinners you buy at the grocery store. I am on a tight budget and they are pretty reasonable in price, plus it’s easy!
Hcg drops and other bogus hcg products were just banned by the FDA
on Monday as fraudulent and even unsafe in some cases.
Do what you want.

I have recently started the HCG diet and I was just wondering if anyone would know how smoking hookah might affect it? Please don’t lecture me on the dangers of dieting I just want to know what I asked. Thank you
So you want to smoke weed that makes you hungry and then you want to use unapproved bogus drops then you want to be on a 500 calorie diet while the smoke INCREASES your hunger pangs?
You were made for the con artists peddling this hcg crap!
If you can focus long enough watch these clips……

Do you think that I could use the HCG drops without doing the their recommended diet?
I would still be eating healthy and all but use the hcg drops to help lose weight.
I would do the hcg diet but i dont like any of the foods they want you to eat so I was thinkin “what if I eat like weight watchers meals and add the HCG drops?”
Any opinions? No dumb remarks please!
No, you have to stick to the 500 calorie diet plan and eat the food on this diet menu, otherwise, you won’t get the results you like. Cause this diet is very strict but effective!

can you start the hcg diet the last two days of your period or will that make the hcg not get into your system?
i am anxious to start the diet and i just got my period but i would like to start it asap. if i start it, the injections and the 2 days of gorging the last two days of my period, will the hcg get into my system enough for the diet to get off to a good start? any info would be helpful ,thanks ….also, does anyone know what kind of conditioner and shampoo to use?
The reason that Dr. Simeon’s says not to inject during your period is because your body actually produces HCG during the menstrual cycle. I may be wrong, anyone feel free to correct me. So injecting on those days would be a waste of your HCG. Also, the more HCG in your system, the faster you become immune. If I were you I would go ahead and start loading now to get your normal fat reserves up and then start injecting and loading for two more days after the period. I know I loading for a week this round, only because I have been on so many diets before and I wanted to make sure my normal fat reserves were full. I am on my 9th day now, and have not had even the slightest bit of hunger the whole week.
See the first week is sometimes hard since you may get hunger pangs, that is why we load, so that our body can run off our normal fat for the first few days and keep us content until the hcg gets into our system and mobilizes the abnormal fat.
Try to eat very high fat food, on my loading I had fried chicken, buttered biscuits, chocolate, donuts, peanut butter cups, chips, etc. LOL I feel so strange telling you to eat all that but enjoy it!
Also, whenever I am in the kitchen I wear gloves, only because I live with 8 other people and there is no telling what has oil on it. That’s right, even a drop of oil touching your skin will keep you from losing the next day. Be careful! Check all spices and foods for any sugar, oil, sugar alcohol, or aspartame(BAD).
As far as shampoo and conditioner, I am using the same I normally do. I have just reduced washing my hair to once or twice a week. I have curly hair so this is actually keeping my waves a bit more hydrated. The easiest thing is to just use your normal shampoo and conditioner and just wash your hair less. But expect to not lose on the day you shampoo and condition. Normal showers are fine though, with -bar soap with no oil in ingredients-, just rinse your hair with water or use a shower cap.
Btw, you WILL gain a lot of weight on your load days but don’t worry, you will lose every ounce of it within the first few days!
I have started the Dr. Simeon’s Protocol (original and only true HCG diet) about 5 times but different circumstances forced me to stop. I am finally able to do a full round, hopefully with no interuptions.
It has been 9 days:
I started at …………178 (after loading)
I am now at …………165
Round 1 Goal……….148 or less ^_^
A note, DO NOT freeze your HCG, no matter what anyone tells you. Just refrigerate. I lost a bottle of HCG because I listened to someone else and froze it. HCG is very fragile and freezing ruins it.
Also, we can have vinegar and cucumbers on the diet, so some people say that means we can also have pickles. I have them sometimes. It’s up to you, I have been losing fine. Just another thing you may consider if you get bored with your food.
Another note , there is a diet soda called Zevia, that is sweetened with Stevia (a sweet plant). Zevia has no calories, no sugar, its all natural. I found a few cans at my local Whole Foods store for 99cents a can. I’ve had two cans in a week and a half, it tastes better than regular diet soda. Its nice to keep around for when you get a craving for soda. But don’t overdo it.
Email me if you have any other questions, I have a lot of tips for ya!
—BIGGEST THING TO REMEMBER!
—WATER < TEA < COFFEE…GET YOUR LIQUIDS IN and DONT EAT PAST 7PM (so your body has plenty of time to digest and flush out all the food and your weight in the morning will be correct)

the hcg diet preferably states to eat 500 and 10 drops 3 times a day. i think i eat about 700 idk but will i still lose weight and is it ok?
If you eat less than 1,000 cal. per day (if your weight is over 100 lbs) if you are teenager and still growing – then DIETS are not recommended! However, I hear that young men like the thin & gaunt – a good wind will drop em like a tree look! Then you can lose weight. Don’t be surprised when you everyone around is fine and your feeling mighty cold!

I have been on the hCG diet for seven days now (and am simultaneously taking Acai Berry Max) and am unsure of what my results should be like after 45 days. I’ve lost 12 pounds so far, should I be worried? I’m 5’8″ and weigh 180 pounds. Any advice would be amazing!
Congratulations on the weight loss and no if you are following the diet exactly as it’s written you are right on track. Your body will have entered a state of Ketosis which simply means your burning fat for fuel now. Which is exactly what you want, right.
I have done two rounds of the HCG Diet and have lost over 60 lbs and have kept it off for 9 months! It works!
Check out my blog for tips and tricks! Keep it up your doing good!

Has anyone eaten other foods on the HCG Diet outside the food listing but still within the 500 calorie limit?
I have started the HCG diet and am struggling with the food choices. I would like to eat frozen dinners or other foods for some meals. I would still stay within the 500 calorie limit. Has anyone done that? Any luck?
That would be fine, but it’ll be much harder to stay under your limit…
