HCG 2.0 is a smarter alternative to the traditional HCG diet. It provides the same rapid weight loss of the original HCG diet while eliminating the torturous hunger. It’s about smart weight loss rather than grueling, and quite frankly, dangerous weight loss.
Since originally publishing by book in 2013, I’ve used feedback from my dieters to find several opportunities to both maximize results and make those results truly sustainable. If done properly, HCG 2.0 will be the last diet you’ll ever need. That’s the purpose of the my new supplemental course.
The Accountability Plus+ video course utilizes an online teaching program called Teachable. It’s easy to navigate and can be accessed via phone or desktop. You can view the entire course using the links below, but for now, I want you to pay attention to WHY the course is necessary rather than what it includes.
Why you need The Accountability Plus+ Video Course to compliment your HCG 2.0 protocol?
I know for a fact that my book can stand on its own. The reason HCG 2.0 has become the industry standard for rapid weight loss is because it works. My private Facebook group has over 20,000 members with new success stories added daily. My book has over 300 Amazon reviews with a 4.4 rating out of 5 stars. It works.
However, one of the criticisms I get is that it doesn’t include enough recipes and daily meal planning. In my defense, this was intentional. You’ve heard the saying, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man (or woman) to fish and they eat for a lifetime?” This was my intention with HCG 2.0. I didn’t want to hand you a menu and say, eat this. I wanted to teach you HOW to eat. Not only you, but your entire family.
I understand the criticisms in regard to meal planning and HCG 2.0 recipes. I understand that you’re busy with work and family. Life get’s in the way sometimes, which is why I created Accountability Plus+ (AP+). It compliments the book without sacrificing any of the lessons I intended when I initially wrote it. With the addition of AP+ you now get a full week of meal plans and over 30 HCG 2.0 recipes to keep things fresh and new. HCG 2.0 was created to give you more options than the original HCG diet, so I agree that it’s my job to articulate those. If you don’t succeed, I don’t succeed.
Meal planning and recipes aside, the REAL reason I created Accountability Plus+ was to give you all the tools and insights you need to maximize results and, furthermore, make your weight loss truly sustainable.
I sell over 500 diet packages per month. I know for a fact that if you stick to my HCG 2.0 protocol, you will lose your 20-30 pounds in 30-40 days. It will happen. I promise you.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that losing the weight is the easy part. The hard part is making your weight loss permanent. But look at it this way, making your weight loss permanent is a really good problem to have. How many of your friends would love to have that problem?
I’m going to be completely honest with you – I have dieters that buy my products once, sometimes twice a year, only to lose the same 20-30 pounds. They lose it with HCG 2.0, but slowly (sometimes quickly) gain it all back.
Two Types of Dieters
I’ve been working with weight loss patients since 2009. Over the past 8 years I’ve learned a lot about the psychology of weight loss. I can tell you with certainty that there are two types of dieters. There are the Perpetual Dieters and there are the Permanent losers. Which one are you? See below…
Perpetual Dieters – You’ve probably had success with dieting in the past, but you’re still looking for the next best thing. You likely diet with a deadline, you have someone or someones to impress soon. If this is your first time exploring a weight loss plan, you likely spent more time researching the diet supplement rather than the diet itself. You’re mostly result driven; more concerned with your appearance rather than your health.
Permanent Losers – You’ve had it with dieting, done and done. You’re less interested in the scale but more interested in getting it right and improving your overall health. You might have had a recent health scare; nothing life-threatening, but it was enough to make you think. You don’t have a deadline; you want something that works and you’re ready to make the sacrifice.
Do you see the difference? If you’re a perpetual dieter, you can certainly continue to purchase year after year, but I’d rather see you healthy and happy. I want you to be a permanent loser. And the only way to be a permanent loser is to realize that it requires permanent lifestyle change, which is hard. You can’t do it by counting calories, you can’t do it with a phone app and there is no miracle pill.
How to make your diet work for you, rather than you work for your diet
If you’ve read my blog or my book, you’ve heard me say taste is an acquired sense. You have to learn to love the food you eat. If you don’t learn to enjoy a healthy, whole food diet, you’ll continue to be a perpetual dieter, and look, you don’t have to be at your fighting weight 24/7 365, but you absolutely CANNOT allow yourself to slip out of that 5-10 pound comfort zone. Sure, I’ll put on a couple pounds over the winter, but when I hit 195, it’s a wake up call. It’s time to reel it in, so I reel it in. I can do this because I know what it takes. Kylene knows what it takes and Judi knows what it takes. And it’s no longer a sacrifice… it’s just their lifestyle.
This is the purpose of Accountability Plus+. In the 30-40 days you’re on your HCG 2.0 protocol, you need to be reflecting on all of the reasons that necessitated a diet plan in the first place. You can’t correct your bad habits until you can identify them. This is not about calorie reduction, but more about calorie replacement. You’ve heard people say, “if you love your job, you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” The same can be said for food… if you learn to love what you eat, you’ll never have to diet again.
What you’ll learn from AP+ that will make HCG 2.0 the last diet you’ll ever need…
Weight loss isn’t solely about eliminating calories from your diet, but it’s also about giving your body the proper nutrition it needs to remedy a really messed up satiety response. What do I mean by that? If you continue to eat the worthless calories so prevalent in the Standard American Diet (SAD) you’ll never be satiated. Your body will tell you it’s still hungry because you’re not giving it what it needs such as adequate protein, a healthy balance of fats, and phytonutrition from vegetables. By removing the SAD junk and replacing it with healthy whole foods, your body will reward you by finally telling you it’s full.
You don’t truly learn something until it becomes part of your vocabulary. You can’t make real lifestyle change by reading a menu. In order to make sustainable lifestyle change, you need to educate yourself so that you can completely and fully explain it to others. Right now, you’re the student, but you’ll soon become the teacher. Kylene and Judi are outstanding examples of this. Neither of them applied for the jobs they have. Judi became a permanent presence in my private Facebook group, one of the original members, in fact. So much so that I offered her a job. The exact same is true for Kylene. By educating themselves, they made it their lifestyle. Are they miserable, absolutely not. Do they miss their old lifestyle, no. Are their families healthier because of their lifestyle change, absolutely. Will there be haters in your life that turn their nose up because you’ve become a food snob, YES!!! But is that a bad thing? What is more important, the health and longevity of you and your family, or the haters?
I mentioned this above, but it’s worth mentioning again, you can’t count calories forever. I am so fortunate that my mother was pioneer of a healthy whole food diet. Sure, she could stretch a pound of hamburger into two meals by combining it with mad starches, but she didn’t allow us any sugar and she fed us vegetables right out of the gate. As a result, I don’t have a sweet tooth and I love eating vegetables. This may sound alien to you right now, and if it does, you’ve got a long way to go, but I’ll show you how to do it. You replace crappy good stuff with healthy good stuff. What would you rather have for dinner, a non-food item from a plastic wrapper that you heat up rather than cook or a grilled piece of salmon with sauteed vegetables? This brings me to my next point…
You have to make the time to eat healthy. The poor foods in your diet are generally NOT your foods of choice, but your foods of convenience. If you don’t allocate enough time to prepare (that means cook, not heat) food for yourself and your family, you’ll find yourself without any options. And without options or choices, you’re left only with obligation. And obligation takes the fun out of everything. Give yourself options. Both for the sake of your waistline and your peace of mind. Also in line with giving yourself options…
You have to allocate the proper budget to eating healthy. Kylene will disagree with me on this. She’ll tell you that she actually saves money because there are no more pizza nights or $35 family dinners for four at McDonald’s. Instead, she’ll take the kids to the grocery story on a Friday night and shop the perimeters. And, believe it or not, the kids take interest in what they buy because they get to bring it home help prepare it. Personally, since I’ve become a big boy with a big boy job, I feel fine allocating more of my budget to food. I have no problem taking my son out to a steak dinner. It’s an investment. I want him to like healthy food. If you start out feeding your kids sugar and junk, that’s what they’ll learn to like. Don’t put them behind the 8-ball like that. Communicate with them. Educate them. Make it their lifestyle too. You eat three meals per day. You’ll likely continue to do that for the rest of your life. What is more important than that? Allocate the proper budget for it.
Exercise. Eating healthy is way more than half the battle, but exercise is the rest. However, you don’t need a high dollar gym membership and some flashy shoes to maintain a healthy weight, you just need to be active. Do you know what New Yorkers and the Amish have in common? Find out in Accountability Plus+.
Being successful with HCG 2.0 has as much to do with managing moral than it does with your HCG supplement or the 2.0 protocol. Over the course of your HCG 2.0 diet you absolutely will experience a stall. It happens to everyone. Accountability Plus+ will teach you how to manage a stall and how to overcome it. It’s all about moral.
Overcoming a stall or multiple stalls leads me into my final point which is intermittent fasting (IF). This is your ace in the hole. Your trump card. When I wrote HCG 2.0 there wasn’t a lot of information on IF, but I’ve compiled my own research, both from personal experience and from the experiences of the members of the Facebook group. Accountability Plus+ will teach you how and when to apply the intermittent fasting to maximize your results on the HCG 2.0 protocol and how to use it to make your weight loss truly sustainable.
This is what it’s all about. HCG 2.0 will tell you how to lose 20-30 pounds in 30-40 days, but Accountability Plus+ will show you how to make it permanent.
