Are you ready for some Q and A about the HCG Weight Loss Diet?
Frequently Asked Questions

For the most part, reading Dr. Simeons' Pounds And Inches should tell you everything you need to know about the diet. But even after reading the entire HCG Protocol you may still walk away with some unanswered questions.

So today, I wanted to go ahead and answer some of the more commonly asked HCG Diet Questions...

  3. Can Men Use The HCG Diet? - Yes, the diet can be used by men or women.
  4. How Many Calories Am I Allowed To Eat Per Day? The original HCG Protocol is 500 calories per day. However, this is a strict protocol and you can't eat just anything that equals 500 calories.
  5. How Long Do I Have To Wait Between Rounds 1 and 2? - You must wait 6 weeks from your last injection date. However, the amount of time increases the more rounds you do. Go here to see how long you should wait between later rounds.

  13. How Much Weight Will I Lose On The HCG Diet? - Typically, men lose about 1 pound per day. Woman tend to lose a bit less, around 1/2 pound per day. I have even talked to people that say they have lost 3 or 4 pounds in one day.
  14. How Long Should I Do The HCG Diet For? - It depends on how much weight you want to lose. You can do a 23 day or a 40 day round on HCG. But either way you must continue doing the 500 Calorie Diet for 3 days after you stop taking the HCG Hormone.

  20. Can I Use The HCG Diet To Lose Just 5 Pounds? - While you can use the diet to lose any amount of weight that you want, I wouldn't recommend using it to lose any less than 15 pounds. (Just my opinion)
  21. Do I Have To Use Injections On The HCG Diet? - No, there are other ways of doing the HCG Diet. You can use Oral Liquid HCG Drops, HCG Pellets, and other various methods.
  22. Will I Gain The Weight Back After The HCG Diet? - If the diet is done correctly and you continue to eat right after completing the diet, you should stay within 2 pounds of your ending weight.
  23. Do I Have To Do Phase 1 Of The HCG Diet? - Although it is not required that you do Phase 1, it is highly recommended.
  24. Should I Use Kevin Trudeau's or Dr. Simeons HCG Diet Protocol? - It is up to you, but I would suggest using the original HCG Protocol by Dr. Simeons for your very first round. (Pounds And Inches) However, it doesn't hurt to read Kevin Trudeau's book "The Weight Loss Cure "They" Don't Want You To Know About". It has a lot of useful information in it.
  25. Will I Lose Weight With The HCG Diet? - Absolutely! If you follow the HCG Diet Protocol you will lose weight.
