How Does HGC 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.

Phases of HCG 2.0

Phase One

This phase is also called the loading phase.  The goal of loading is to eat healthy fat to sustain your body through the first week of the low calorie phase.  There is no need to gain on this phase.  Your aim is to eat healthy fats such as those found in bacon, avocado, cream cheese, butter, etc.  

You will load for two or three days before starting your low calorie days.  On the first day of loading, you will also begin taking your preferred HCG.

Phase Two

This is the low calorie phase of the diet.  You will eat 800 calories a day and limit your carbs to 30 TOTAL a day.  There are no restrictions on protein amounts or mixing proteins and veggies.  Your fat will come from the proteins you choose and there are no restrictions on the kinds of proteins you eat.  You can eat  wild caught salmon, lean hamburger, steak, chicken etc.  The higher the content of fat in your protein choice, the higher the calories.  As long as you stay at 800 calories, you will not need to worry about fat.  Eat REAL food only.  Meal planning is key to this diet.  If you always have it prepared and know what your are going to eat, you are less likely to make bad choices.  A round can be anywhere from 21-60 days.  Don't go past 60 days.  Your body needs a rest to reset to continue losing. 

When you are ready to end the round you need to stop your HCG and continue the low calorie phase for three days and move onto Phase three.

Phase Three

Phase three is the most important part of this diet.  It's important to maintain your weight to reset you body's set point.  Once you start phase three you will add calories and carbs back in very slowly.  Continue eating your phase two foods just increasing your calories and carbs (up to 50 net).  This is where you can add in fruit (lower carb varieties).  I would still stay away from grains as they will kick your carb cravings back in.  You need to do at least 21 days of P3 before starting another P2.

HCG 2.0 Diet Tips

Just a reminder this is not the original 500 calories protocol. 

HCG 2.0 is a high protein, low carb diet.  The only rules for 2.0 is you should only eat real food, and don't go over 800 calories and you limit your carbs to 30 TOTAL a day.  Healthy fat is good and necessary to weight loss.  

1. Do not do less than 800 calories. 800 calories is the minimum you should be doing to sustain bodily functions and keep your metabolism where it should be. 

2. All of your food should be clean and no boxed or packaged processed foods to maximize weight loss. Your liver does not know what to do with preservatives and chemicals which will hamper weight loss.  I personally recommend you also stay away from any kind of protein shakes.  Read the ingredients, if you can't pronounce it, it's probably not conducive to weight loss. 

3. The carbs you eat should be from veggies and flax or chia seeds. You should always add one tablespoon of chia or flax seeds because doing low carb cuts out fiber which regulates insulin. You absolutely need fiber to lose weight. It will also keep you from being constipated on this diet.  

4. You can use heavy whipping cream in your coffee much better than the chemical crap with flavors. Add some vanilla to it and it’s yummy and satisfying.

5. Stop snacking. The more times you eat in a day the less time your body has to regulate your insulin and go into burning fat mode. It will make you less hungry if you eat 2-3 good meals a day.  If you need a snack, eat some aged cheese or raw veggies. Try intermittent fasting.  It's a game changer for weight loss.

6. Eat whatever meat you like. Keep your protein grams at 70-80 grams a day. The extra fat from this source will keep you fuller and not craving carbs. You body needs fat to function and lose weight properly. This is what also makes you feel full.

7. Use real butter, olive oil or mct or coconut oils only.

8. Get those steps in. I aim for 10,000 a day. just a doable pace for your body. If you already exercise that’s awesome and you can keep doing it.

9. You can use any makeup or body lotions you are currently using.

10. STAY OFF THE SCALE!!! Use a tape measure. The stress of that scale raises cortisol which will make you gain weight all by itself no matter how well you are eating. It’s also not a true picture of what’s going on inside your body. Weigh once a week.

11. The longest you should be on 800 calories is 60 days. 30-45 is better. Any longer is counterproductive and you risk screwing up your metabolism. Trust me on this one.

12. Stalls are normal with weight loss. Ignore the scale. Better yet stop weighing and just keep going.
