How does HCG 2.0 work?

Many assume weight loss to be solely about calorie reduction. This is only half true (and we don’t mean exercise). Weight loss is also about giving your body the proper nutrition it needs so that it will reward you with a feeling of satiety and fullness.  This is what the HCG 2.0 diet is all about.  You don’t need to diet for a lifetime to see life changing results.

How the HCG 2.0 Diet works in three phases

Phase 1

The first phase is called ‘loading’ and it lasts for two days.  During these two days you’ll take HCG and load up on fats. Because your body stores fat for a reason and without proper loading your body will be very defensive about its calories. When you suddenly drop your caloric intake your body will slip into starvation mode.  However, if you load up on fatty foods you’ll outsmart the innate intelligence of your body by causing a spike in your liver enzymes.  This means you’ll eat fish, nuts, avacado, butter, steak, bacon, and a lot of it.  You can see an example phase one menu here.  

Phase 2

For the second phase you’ll need your BMR (use our calculator) to determine how many calories you’ll get for the next 23-40 days (depending on how much you want to lose). You’ll also continue to take HCG and many take other supplements like Phyto Plus to help keep them feeling full. With your calorie limit determined you will then reduce carbs to no more than 30 per day and you’ll avoid fruits, starches, grains, and dairy products. This is phase where the rapid weight loss kicks in.  The HCG will start to burn your reserves of unwanted fat while you are in a ketosis state because of the high protein, low fat, low carbohydrate diet.

Phase 3

This is the maintenance phase. Phase three is how you come off the HCG and keep the weight off.  You’ll continue to eat as you did in phase two, but you stop taking HCG for three weeks. If you’ve met your goal weight in phase two you’ll still need to do this phase.  If you have not yet met your goal you can start back at phase one after phase three is complete.

The Book with all the HCG 2.0 Diet Details

HCG 2.0 was ranked the #1 diet of 2016 according to Consumer Affairs Magazine.  This book was written by Dr. Zach LaBoube, founder of InsideOut Wellness and Weight Loss. It is a contemporary ketosis based version of the original HCG diet. Medicine is called a practice for a reason. As new technology and research becomes available, treatment protocols evolve, always for the better. Shouldn’t the HCG diet be the same? First published in 1954, the traditional HCG diet, as seen on many of your favorite daytime TV shows, including Dr. Oz, has helped millions achieve weight loss success. However, the strict tone and outdated calorie recommendations make the diet far more difficult than it needs to be. While the concepts and theory that inspired the traditional diet are still very relevant, the protocol itself is still stuck in the 50’s and in dire need of revision.
