The African Honey badgers HCG Guide

I have had great success with HCG. All of my reduction has come directly from the HCG and no other source. I want to share my experience, and to start I want to clarify something.

There are two products available. Rx Grade HCG and Homeopathic HCG.

Rx HCG works by introducing actual Human Chorionic Gonadotropin into your system and it begins to regulate your lipid metabolism via main action.

hHCG works by encouraging your own body to produce additional HCG.

These are two very huge differences. The hHCG approach assumes that your own body is healthy enough to allow production of additional HCG to support your weight loss goal. IMHO if you are looking to remove between 15 and 30 pounds this may work for you. If you are looking to remove that amount I have begun recommending a Primal Lifestyle and Body by Science for 3 months to see if that will start you in the right direction, if not by all means look into hHCG.

For those who like me are more than 30 pounds over that they feel is idea. (I no longer look at the BMI charts for anything more than a reference point as those numbers were created by averaging young men and women just out of basic after WWI and WWII) I support RxHCG + Primal + Body by Science.

These are no more than tools to accomplish a goal. Those who ware +30 or more have a serious metabolic imbalance. The primary cause of this shall be determined by genetics and lifestyle but in the main it is an imbalance that either was always outside their control or became outside their control. Being obese is much like turning to the dark side of the force.
"Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will."
It takes no effort to remain obese; the mechanism of the body will sustain that all on its own. It takes an intervention at a metabolic level.

IMHO 95% of the obese did not choose to become so. Not consciously at least. But once the tipping point is reached food intake becomes irrelevant. RxHCG halts and modifies the broken metabolism and provides momentum the other way.

This should never be assumed to be the entire solution. We don’t yet have enough data to show if a human organism can actually heal from obesity or it once they become obese if the organism will forever trend toward obesity. Anecdotal data says the body wants to return to its energy storing ways once it gets a taste for it. I personally assume that my body will always WANT to store' I also hope that I can create an environment where it will choose to spend.

RxHCG should always be taken in accord with the principals espoused in Pounds and Inches by Dr A T W Simeons. Until one completes one round "by the book" one cannot know how to deviate from it. For some individuals deviations are not only desired but may be required for success; others do very well following the protocol as written.

The protocol is written has the following parts. A loading phase, a reduction phase, and stabilization phase.

In the loading phase the individual should bulk up on saturated fat. Ideally one would want to consume enough saturated fat for 2 days of energy expenditure. RxHCG is taken during this loading phase which is a minimum of 2 days and no greater than 5. It is expected and assumed that one will gain weight during this loading period and that weight will be counted as part of the overall loss. IMHO this is where most people fail. They either load on the wrong foods, or do not load enough, or refuse to count that gain as part of the loss. This last one is a psychological blow to most obese people, as they don’t want to gain in the first place and have trouble accepting it as a requirement.

In the reduction phase an individual is restricted to a daily INTAKE of 500 calories as shown below, while applying HCG hormone at a specific dosage daily. This can be applied sublingually, subcutaneously, or intramuscularly. Studies show that each method is as effective as the others. Weight is recorded daily. While the intake is 500 calories the HCG will release the fat stores to compensate for the lack of calories eaten. This regimen is followed for 20 or 40 days depending on the goals of the individual. Anecdotal evidence is that 40 days is better for the stabilization phase, however it is not required. The final part of the reduction phase is a 3 days period of continuation of the eating plan while discontinuing the hormone regimen. If on the last day hunger is felt a modest increase to 800 calories of the same food plan is allowed.

Tea or coffee in any quantity without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk allowed in 24 hours. Saccharin or Stevia may be used.

1. 100 grams of veal, beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp. All visible fat must be carefully removed before cooking, and the meat must be weighed raw. It must be boiled or grilled without additional fat. Salmon, eel, tuna, herring, dried or pickled fish are not allowed. The chicken breast must be removed from the bird.

2. One type of vegetable only to be chosen from the following: spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage.

3. One breadstick (grissini) or one Melba toast.

4. An apple, orange, or a handful of strawberries or one-half grapefruit.

The same four choices as lunch (above.)
Finally is stabilization. Stabilization consists of essentially a Paleo/Primal diet of unlimited quantity. There are many ways to calculate basic caloric need but two stand out, and are listed below. Weight is recorded daily and an increase of more than 3 pounds (2 in the original protocol, however we see 3 or 4 today) must be managed by intermittent fasting (AKA Steak Day). Once the weight is seen on the scale one must refrain from eating till dinner and one must eat only steak (or other similar protein source) at a size of 1 oz per 20 pounds of body weight. The time for stabilization is 6 weeks + 2 weeks per additional round.

Harris Benedict Equation
English BMR Formula
Women: BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age in years)

Men: BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) - (6.8 x age in year)

Metric BMR Formula
Women: BMR = 655 + (9.6 x weight in kilos) + (1.8 x height in cm) - (4.7 x age in years)

Men: BMR = 66 + (13.7 x weight in kilos) + (5 x height in cm) - (6.8 x age in years)
Rule of Loss Equation
Average the Rate of Loss from day 5 to the end of the reduction phase (either day 20 or 40) multiply that by 3500 and add 500.

Weight Lost per day from 5 - (20 or 40)/ number of day (15 or 35) = ROL

ROL*3500+500 = Minimum caloric need.
I personally like the rule of loss as it tells you exactly what you body ACTUALLY burned daily during the reduction phase and so you know , on average, how much it needs to keep itself full. This is a minimum as it doesn’t account for activity, but that is fin, it is usually way more than they obese is used to eating and so requires an adjustment anyway.

After the stabilization phase Simeons guides the individual to be careful adding what amounts to non Paleo/Primal food back into the diet. Each gain is noted and the offending food should be managed some way,most often there is some food intolerance to be managed.

Nothing is easy, however HCG provides a manageable way to reduce for those of us who need it.
Good luck on your journey.
