HCG Information in a Nutshell
The HCG information diet protocol, as outlined by Dr. Simeon, consists of a restricted diet in four phases coupled with daily injections of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). The first of the four phases is the binge phase. During this, you are allowed to eat just about anything and in large quantities. The idea is that you will be storing up for the upcoming restrictive phases.
The second phase is the 500-calorie phase and this is the hardest phase of the program. You are restricted to a 500 calorie diet every day and you can eat nothing out of the approved list for this phase as mentioned in the book “Pounds and Inches” by Dr. Simeon. Both fat and sugar are prohibited at this phase.
Then comes the maintenance phase one where the restrictions are a bit loosened up. Fat is phased back in, but still no sugar at this phase. In the maintenance phase two, there are more liberties for you to enjoy. You can have foods that contain fat and sugar, but you’ll have to make sure that you are only consuming them in small quantities.
