It’s important to remember that human physiology exists for long-term survival and only in the last 100 years of our evolution have we had to deal with an excess of available calories. Prior to this, our physiology developed to accommodate an absence of calories that was commonly experienced in the form of long winters or famine, conditions that typically do not exist today. Henceforth, the body becomes defensive when we suddenly decrease calories as we do with dieting. This immediate decrease in calories can shock the body into “starvation mode.” During starvation mode, your body actually becomes more efficient with its calories and more determined to store away fat, assuming that there is a scarcity in food supply. This is why dieting is such an uphill battle. Not only are we struggling with our own poor eating habits, but a physiological pre-disposition to retain fat. Overeating on fats for two days causes liver enzymes to spike which is theorized to prevent the body from entering this starvation mode. By the time your liver enzymes return to normal levels, the HCG has already tapped into your fat reserves and is providing you with supplemental calories from your stored fat, thus bypassing starvation mode, and facilitating rapid, yet healthy weight loss. hcg diet bbq recipes
What does all of this mean? It means you have the green light to eat all of your fatty favorites during the first two days that you begin taking your HCG supplement. Not only does this jumpstart the diet, it provides incentive to begin. Many like to schedule their diet to begin on holidays or vacations. Memorial Day and Forth of July are great times to begin.

In addition to bypassing starvation mode, the loading days of the HCG 2.0 diet also alert the liver to begin attacking and oxidizing systemic fats. The excess calories consumed during the loading phase (P1), provides an immediate reserve to mediate your hunger during the early stages of the low-calorie phase (P2) of the HCG 2.0 diet.
The loading phase of HCG 2.0 is quite similar to that of the traditional HCG diet developed by Dr. Simeons in his famous manuscript Pounds and Inches. So what then is the difference between HCG 2.0 and the traditional HCG diet? HCG 2.0 uses a BMR calculation to determine the amount of calories on your individualized HCG diet.
