Preparing for my hcg diet experience

  1. Hi Jen! I love your blog! I am on my first load day and accidentally (trying to eat all the foods required on load days) ate some pizza at 5:00 pm before I took my last round of drops. Does this affect anything?

    1. Thank you Kit- That made my day!

      You will be fine 🙂

      A lot of people actually end up loading for 3 days (myself included) and the losses are still great the first week. It’s off-protocol to load for 3 days but it’s up to you if you want to do that or get right to Phase 2 and start losing. Either way, I’m sure you will do great!

  2. Is their an update after his page thanks

  3. I’m starting the diet,didn’t get a book that would guide me. My question is do i continue taking the drops on phase 3? RAE.

  4. did you ever post your almond flour shortbread cookie recipe? I cannot find it but would love to try it

  5. I’m on bio identical hormone therapy and ad a result got my period back about two yrs ago. Feel great. Do the bio identical hormones effect the efficiency of the hcg?

  6. How do you get a scrip for the New Edge Health especially if the family doctor believes in losing weight the good old fashion way “push yourself away from the table “.

    1. Hello Charlie! The prescription is included with your hcg purchase. A doctor or nurse practitioner will review your order and call to approve your prescription before shipping out your hcg kit. It’s all very simple and efficient. Hope this helps! 🙂

  7. Jen,
    Love your blog and am restarting Hcg for some reason the last 3 months I have been gaining..otherwise I kept it off for almost 6 years first time and 3 years this last time until diagnosed with lupus.

    I got the 50 day Hcg and the lipo..does the lipo help. I’m reading a bunch about it but don’t know anyone whose taken these along with the Hcg

    1. Thank you Luna! I’m so glad you are finding my blog helpful- that always means a lot to hear that. It sounds like you have been doing extremely well maintaining, until your diagnosis. I’m so sorry to hear about that and I know that has to add some huge challenges to the protocol. Please let me know if I can help at all- although, it sounds like you are already a pro!

      I personally love the lipo shots, as I’m sure you’ve read more than once. 😀 I think everyone is different though- some people find they are extremely helpful, and others do just fine without them. I just love the added energy (comes in very handy with a toddler) and I definitely lose more when using Lipo with the hcg and after. How are you liking them so far?

  8. Hi – I’m in need of a remedy for Christmas cheats. I’m confused about how to do an ‘apple day’ or a steak day to get back on track? Please advise how those are done and under what circumstances one should turn to an apple day or a steak day?

    1. Honestly, I don’t see a reason to do an apple day or steak day, if ever. Those are rarely used these days, and usually in the event of a major stall. Personally, I have done well by just jumping right back on the plan, immediately (not waiting until “the next day.” I have written a post on how to fix a cheat- you can search for it in the search bar. Basically, I suggest keeping the “cheat” to no more than an hour, and continuing with the plan from there. I also suggest a few other steps that are meant to keep your head in the game 🙂

  9. If you don’t take the drops during the loading phase, will it prevent you from loosing weight, when you actually start the diet.

    1. Not necessarily. Some people take them during loading, and others don’t. A lot of dieters don’t find any difference with beginning after loading, however others say they were slightly more hungry the first few days when they did not take the drops while loading.
      Please respond and let me know which you opted to do and how you found your results.

    I was on the diet a couple of years ago and I had a log I used every day. I can’t find a copy of that. Do you have one? It was a box and you checked off the proteins, fruit etc.

    1. Hello Nancy, I do not have that but I would love to create one to share with everyone! Can you email me? hdihealth (@) gmail. ~ Jen

  12. What is loading days?? And when I start I do the drop in the morning no breakfast and drops for lunch and eat lunch and dinner??

    1. Hello Renee,

      Loading days are the first 2 days when you start taking your Hcg. (Some protocols have you do 3 loading days.) During this time, you eat pretty much whatever you would like, although I suggest focusing on healthy fats that are satisfying. If you do a search on my blog, I have a few articles on Loading Days for the Hcg Diet. I hope this helps clear it up a little!
