Understanding HCG Diet rounds and how many rounds you will need to lose the weight….

A properly followed HCG Diet is completed through either a single, or multiple “rounds” with carefully planned and executed breaks.  How many rounds, and the length of these rounds are recommended primarily based on how much weight the individual needs to lose.  The patients history is taken into consideration as well.

    Typically, an individual who has 15 to 20 lbs to lose, completes this in a single round.
    Additional rounds are recommended for those who have more weight to lose.

Understanding the Lengths of HCG Diet Rounds

Hcg Diet 169

The length of a round can vary according to which diet plan you read, and which Doctor or specialist has designed the protocol.  To keep things simple, most dieters will follow a modification of the original HCG Diet (Simeons Protocol) where a round lasts for approximately 3 weeks.  This is considered a “short round.”  (Most “short round” HCG diet kits are 24 to 28 day kits.)   A “long round” is considered 6 weeks and is generally used by those who have a significant amount of weight to lose.  (Long round HCG diet kits are typically 40 to 58 days.)

Should I order a short round or long round HCG Diet Round Kit?

As a general rule of thumb…

Those who have 15 to 20 lbs of fat to lose or less, are recommended to follow a 3 week, short round.

For individuals who have more than 20 lbs to lose, the 6 week, long round kits are typically recommended.

I lost 88 lbs with the HCG Diet in 2002, and I kept it off for over 10 years and I’m currently on a mission to lose 45 lbs of baby weight with HCG from Nu Image and Diet Doc. This diet changed my life, leading me to start the first Hcg Diet site: Hcgdietinfo.com. 15+ years later, 100 million visits, over a million pages, & countless lives changed… HDI has become the true highlight of my journey.
