15 Things To Do Before Starting The HCG Diet

Do you know what to do before you start the HCG Diet?

Getting yourself prepared for the HCG Diet can mean the difference between success and failure.

This is why it's so important to do everything that you can to be ready to start. Below, is a list that I have put together to help you be better prepared for the HCG Weight Loss Diet.

15 Things To Do Before Starting The HCG Diet

1. Pick A Date And Write It Down - Mark your starting date on the calender where you will see it everyday - This will help to get you mentally prepared for the diet.

2. Spread The Word - Tell friends and family that you are going to do the HCG Diet. Be sure to tell them when you plan on starting. This way it will be harder for you to back out.

3. Read The HCG Protocol - You should read Dr. Simeons original HCG Diet Protocol. Make sure you read it front to back. Read it twice if you have to.

4. Order Your HCG - It's best to be under a doctors care while on the HCG Diet. But these days not everyone has that luxury. So if you are getting your HCG online, make sure to order it now. It could take a couple of weeks to arrive.

5. Colon Cleanse - This one is optional, but using a colon cleanse is highly recommended.

6. Snap Some Photo's - Taking before pictures of your body is always a good idea. They may be hard to look at in the beginning, but after the diet you'll be glad that you took them.

7. Measure Yourself - Get measurements of your waist, arms and your legs. The HCG Diet is not only about dropping pounds, it's also about losing inches.

8. Weigh Yourself - This is something that most overweight people refuse to do. But it's something that you must do everyday on the HCG Diet. Plus you need a starting point so that you will know how much you have lost.

9. Start A Journal - You will want to get yourself an HCG Diet Journal. This is good for tracking your weight, or just writing down how you feel. Also, if you hit a plateau you can go back and see if it's something you've done.

10. Clean Out Your Fridge - Start going through your refrigerator and throw out any of the foods that might tempt you while on the HCG 500 Calorie Diet.

11. Go Shopping - Stock up on... Bottled water, lean meats, vegetables, fruit and all of the other foods that are allowed on the 500 Calorie Diet. 

12. Get A Foreman Grill - If you don't have George Foreman Grill, get one. Believe me, after you see how much fat and grease drips off of your food, you'll be glad that you did.

13. Research The Diet - Find out some of the more common mistakes that people have made on the HCG Diet. This way, you'll be more likely to avoid making them yourself.

14. Find Recipes - Get some good recipes for Phase 2 and 3 of the HCG Diet. You can even find a few here on the HCG Diet 411 Blog.

15. Plan Out Your Meals - After reading the protocol, you'll find that you can't always eat the same thing. It's important that you never eat the same thing twice in one day. So you might want to weigh out and cut up your portions before the diet starts. If you do this, just make sure to place them in the freezer.

The better prepared you are, the more success you will have. So make sure to try and do all of the things on the list above. Good luck!

Is there anything else that you would add to the list?

  4. Add one more - start drinking more water so you don't feel like you're forcing down water during the first few days (including the "Carb Loading").

  5. hello, just wondering whenn to start. i have the drops already but someone told me you are supposed to start a day after your menstrual cycle. How true is that??? How would men deal with the start day? just wondering.... by the way, im nervous about finding the right foods to eat during this diet.

  6. Hi, injections should be delivered today and I planned on loading Thanksgiving and Friday. Shopped and am prepared for VLCD. Looked at calendar today and noticed that TOM should come next week Tuesday. Should I postpone? Any feedback is appreciated.

  7. I am a little scard about the hcg injections. I read side effects and heard blood clots + pulmonary emboli can occur.

    I am 50 lbs overweight and a Binge eater. I am on a blood thinner. Doctors I talk to saw t h is is dangerous but I lost weight on it before + had no problems. I would love to have a Support Friend to check in daily with. Thank you.Dee

Get Real HCG Here! The HCG Diet Plan is without a doubt the fastest and most effective way to lose  weight still even in 2023. However, simply eating 500-800 calories per day isn't enough to lose those unwanted pounds and inches; especially if you want to keep them off for good - For that you must also use high quality pharmaceutical grade HCG. These days though it can be tough to find a trusted company that offers the HCG Diet in full. That's why I recommend hcgRx to all of my readers. Over the years running The HCG 411 Blog I have seen a lot of different HCG companies come and go but none of them are like hcgRx. I have had many personal conversations with the owners and have never met someone who cares as much about their products and users as they do. hcgRx has a wide variety of HCG Diet packages and products to choose from online.  While most people prefer to do a single 28 day round at a time, there are longer rounds available that can be done depending on your weight loss

HCG Diet Phase 1

How Much Do You Really Know About Phase 1 Of The HCG Diet? Today I was reading up on Kevin Trudeau's Weight Loss Protocol, when I came across Phase 1 of the HCG Diet. And as I was reading I thought, this would be a great topic for today's blog post. However I must warn you it's kind of long. Oh who am I kidding, it's very long. So make sure that you set aside a little bit of time to read it. Now while you are reading this article try to remember, Phase 1 is not something that everyone does - But if you do decide to do it you will likely experience greater success during Phase 2. So, even though this part of the diet is not required, it is highly recommended. Here it is right from Kevin Trudeau's HCG Weight Loss Cure Protocol -  Phase 1 of the HCG Diet - Preparation "Although this phase is not required, based on today's conditions, it is highly recommended. This phase consists of a series of dos and don'ts. It may be di
