HCG Diet Phase 2

HCG Phase 1  •  HCG Phase 2  •  HCG Phase 3  •  HCG Phase 4

Phase 2 of the HCG Diet - Rapid Weight Loss Phase (23 - 40 days)

HCG Diet Phase 2 Begins Once:

1) You have completed 3 - 7 days of HCG Phase 1, and
2) After you have started HCG injections or HCG drops

HCG Phase is also known as the Rapid Weight Loss Phase. Phase 2 produces dramatic weight loss that is incredibly satisfying for the dieter and almost unbelievable for everyone else. This 2nd Phase of the diet usually begins after 3 days of "bear eating" in HCG Phase 1, but could be as late as the 7th day for dieters who have severely damaged their metabolism from yo-yo dieting.

For many, believing and accepting the rapid weight loss that occurs with Phase 2 of the HCG Diet is perhaps the most difficult concept to understand in the HCG Diet. This isn't surprising, since we've all been taught to lose 1-2 pounds per week, then suddenly a diet claims to produce that type of weight loss every day!

HCG Phase 2

Those who ignore the skeptics and try the HCG Diet find they rapidly lose weight without excessive hunger. Men tend to average a little over a pound per day, while women can expect to lose about 1/2 to 1 pound per day. The weight loss is more dramatic in the beginning and tends to slow during the last week.

In HCG Phase 2, the intake of HCG continues, but a VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) of 500 calories replaces the heavy eating from Phase 1. For many, a diet so low in calories seems impossible to achieve; however, because of the HCG, thousands of calories are released for energy as fat is burned from areas all over the body and hunger is eliminated.

The most important concept to understand about HCG Phase 2 is how incredibly reactive the body is to any variance away from the eating plan. It is CRITICAL that every part of the HCG Diet is followed exactly. Even the smallest changes can produce large gains in weight and set back additional weight loss for almost 3 days.
