  • Is it normal to become constipated on the HCG Diet?

    Toilet, Bowel MovementsWhile on the HCG 500 Calorie Diet and Hormone Injections, HCG Drops or HCG Pills, you may have noticed that your bowel movements are starting to become very few and far between.

    Unfortunately, constipation is one of the few side effects of the HCG Diet.

    The good news is that you are not alone. In fact, around 80% of all HCG Diet users experience this problem.

    Fortunately, there is something that you can do about it. So if it seems that you too are having a lot less bowel movements since you started the HCG Diet, read the information below to see what you can do about it.

    What To Do About Constipation On The HCG Diet:

    If constipation has become more of a problem since starting the HCG Diet, you can keep it from happening so often by drinking more water.

    The HCG Weight Loss Protocol says that you should be drinking at least 2 Liters of water per day. However, if you can drink closer to 1 gallon of water everyday, you will find yourself a lot less constipated.

    The more water the better!

    Drinking Water For Constipation on HCG DietAnother interesting fact: Increasing your water intake will not only help with constipation on the HCG Diet, but the amount of water that you drink can also work as a great Plateau Breaker - It could possibly even help to speed up your rate of weight loss as well.

    Hopefully this tip can help all of you remain a little more regular while using the HCG Hormone. If you'd like to chat with other HCG Diet users about constipation and other issues surrounding the HCG Diet - Check out the new HCG Diet 411 Forum.

    Is Metamucil (or a store brand) ok during injection phase? I'm guessing not, otherwise somebody would probably already have mentioned it.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe that Metamucil should be used. However, you can drink a daily glass of water with a spoonful of psyllium - Which is the active ingredient found in Metamucil.

    Or you could use Smooth Move Tea, Magnesium or simply drink more water.

    I hope this helps you out,

    I'm looking at starting the hcg injections weight loss program and I'm thinking 23 or 43 day program. But what I dont know is if the pre-mixed 5000 I.U. works as well as the mix your self kind...what's the diff. besides the cost and if I ordered it as a 43 day plan usint two vials of 5000 would the second batch still be good to use after 30 days.

    @ Anonymous,

    I don't think that premixed is as good as mixing it yourself...

    And if you can hold off mixing the second batch until it's needed that would be best. But if you can't, it should be fine as long as you keep it cold the whole time.

    I think the best place to get your 5000 IU of HCG is here. and you can get your 43 day mixing kit here.

    They have great prices and I order from them so I know that they are reliable.

    Good luck and take care,

    I have had the best luck with Smooth Move tea. I've been using it for years and have recommended to my friends for various reasons...surgery, pregnancy, irritable bowels, menopause. It tastes good (hot or on ice) and works consitently without uncomfortable cramping or gas. Good luck all...I am at 17 pounds in 19 days...even over thanksgiving and pms...amazing!!

    oh my! today is my VLCD Day 6 and i finally had a bowel movement!!! So relieved now! Day 4 I started to drink Smooth Move Tea by Traditional Medicines before bedtime. Day 5, I did the same thing...but nothing but gas. Today, tons and tons of water this morning/afternoon, a salad with a whole lot of greens and another cup of Smooth Move Tea and things finally started to move again! So, I'm thinking I just wasn't drinking enough water.

    hi brian, thank you for the site, i've shared it with friends already. i purchased 2 vials of 5000 iu.
    i mixed up the first with the intention of only doing one round the 23 day, take a break, then do the other later.
    i didn't think i would be able to make a full 40 days on the diet.
    but, it's much easier than i thought it would be and i'm averaging a pound a day weight loss.
    can i continue with the 2nd bottle after the 23rd day or should i take a break?
    thanks again!

    hi i just posted about the 2nd bottle, i think i found the answer in the How long to wait between rounds.
    one of the readers asked the same question and you answered he could go straight into the full 40 days, i'm hoping that means i could immediately use another bottle of 5000?

    but i got confused because at the top of the blog, it says wait 3 weeks between round 1 & 2 because you could develop an immunity to the hormone.

    when you say to wait 3 weeks between round 1 & 2, is that meaning that a round is all the phases (the cleanse,the hcg, the maintenance?)

    thanks for all of your time!

    In my practice, we recommend waiting 6 weeks minimum between rounds as to not develop a tolerance to the HCG. This would mean 3 weeks of stabilization and then 3 weeks of maintaining your weight on the maintenance phase.

    I am on p3 and I just started a stall day. I ate and had to do a number 2 but when I did it came out like water and sounded like water. Is that normal, fat, should I get it checked?

    I am confused...I use smooth move tea regularly but thought I couldn't while on HCG because it contains essential oils. Can I really use it with no side effects to weight loss? Thanks. Anonymous... EPA

    Hey all... I'm on phase 2 of the hCG. I've lost 9.5 lbs so far in 7 days. I've kept the steps to the letter without any deviations. I am curious though... how much green salad is the limit. I eat about 4 cups of lettuce with my 100 grams of protein. Also, can I eat my 200 grams of protein for dinner, and eat my fruits and snacks during the day? I wonder if that would change anything. Thank you!

    I have been on the HCG diet (injections) for 8 days and lost 5lbs, but for the last 3 days I have been going back and forth between a wt loss of 1.5lbs to wt gain 1.5lbs. I was dealing with constipation but the Smooth Move helped today. Is this why I have this problem or is it something else. I have not cheated at all and drinking enough water to float. HELP
