PHASE 1: START TAKING THE DROPS & BINGE DAYS (All Diets: 500, 800, and 1200)

When & How To Take The Drops
  • Do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes before taking the drops.
  • Place the recommended amount of drops under your tongue, wait 60 seconds, and then swallow the remaining liquid. (Holding drops under the tongue for longer is better, but not necessary.)
  • Do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes after taking the drops.


For Consistent Weight Loss: You will need (1) 2oz bottle over the course of your 43-day diet, and (2) 2oz bottles over the course of the 64-day diet (64-day diet is recommended if you want to lose 20 lbs. or more.)

43-Day Diet - (1) 2oz Bottle
Day 1 - Day 21: Take 10 drops 3 times per day

63-Day Diet - (2) 2oz Bottles
Day 1 - Day 42: Take 10 drops 3 times per day


(3 Week & 6 Week Programs - Days 1 & 2)

One of the most important aspects to completing this diet correctly is the way that you begin it. And while it may seem strange to begin it with two binge days, this is actually a necessary step for success (and skipping it is not a wise option). Your body actually needs to have a healthy store of normal fat reserves in order to live off the 500-550 calorie diet that you will be maintaining over the following 20 days. So, eat up and give your body the help it needs to get the job done! Reading Dr. Simeon's explanation of how HCG works will give you better insight into why these two days are so important. For now, the most important thing to understand is that you will need to be prepared to take in some serious calories on days 1 and 2! *HINT: Now would be a good time to eat as much as you want of all of those things that you think you might crave during your diet! (i.e. ice cream, pastries, donuts, cheesburgers, pizza, etc.)

Here's where it can get tough for some people. But the diet works and provides amazing results! So, hang in there and your results will be well worth it!

Some Important Guidelines:
  • Each day's intake should be no less than 500 calories and no more than 550. For the 800 and 1200 calorie options, do not fluctuate more than 100 calories below or above.
  • You may drink water, but avoid eating anything after 7pm.
  • Drink AT LEAST 2 liters of fluid per day.
  • Don't use any breath mints and only use gum that contains xylitol.

Food Rules:
  • ONE snack per day (a good snack is a piece of plain melba toast)
  • Use fresh seasonings to flavor your food, but do NOT use any sugar, salts or oils or dressings.
  • Approved drinks are water, tea and coffee.
  • Break your food consumption into 3 small "meals".

Eat only foods on the following approved chart and eat them only according to the following instructions:
  • Choose 2 proteins per day, but don't eat them at the same time. Limit consumption of red meat, tuna, and salmon, to no more than 3 times per week.
  • Choose 2 fruits per day, but don't eat them at the same time.
  • Choose 2 vegetables per day, but don't eat them at the same time.
  • Don't eat fruit in the same sitting as you also eat a protein or a vegetable. Your body will better absorb the protein and nutrients if it processes them separately from the sugar and starch of the fruit.

The Approved Food Chart:

Meat 100 grams (4 ounces) per serving, weighed raw
grilled or baked

  • Beef (steak, extra lean ground beef, or a roast)

800 Calorie Diet

The 800 calorie diet option is similar to the 500 calorie diet. You will separate your food into three meals per day. The only change will be to increase your calorie intake by 100 calories per meal. You can slightly increase your meal portions, but stick to the approved list of foods.

1200 Calorie Diet

With the 1200 calorie diet option, you will eat 5 small meals per day, and 2 additional snacks. Eating 5 small meals will still allow your body to fully utilize the hCG. DO NOT increase your calories for only 3 meals, as this may hinder the effect of the hCG in helping you reset your metabolism.

What should I do when I'm done with the drops?

On your 22nd day you will stop taking the HCG Complex Drops, but you need to give your body time to adjust and ease back into a normal diet. Even though you won't be taking drops, you should continue to maintain the same daily calorie intake (500, 800, or 1200) for the 3 days following the end of your program. This will give you time to completely process the remaining HCG that is left in your body at the end of the diet before you start increasing food consumption.

Below you will find some important tips for the Stabilization Phase:
  • For the first 3 weeks after you finish taking the drops, avoid sugars and starches such as breads, potatoes, pastries, crackers and rice.
  • Limit dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt.
  • Continue to isolate your fruit consumption (do not eat it with protein).
  • Slowly increase your calories. By day 35 you should be up to 1200 to 1400 calories per day.

(3 Week Program: Days 43 - Forever)
(6 Week Program: Days 64 - Forever)

At this point you can begin to incorporate moderate amounts of sugars and starches back into your diet. You do not need to be as strict with your calorie intake, but you should still be conscious of the types of food you are consuming and stick to smaller portions multiple times per day. It is never good to overeat, so if keeping a calorie limit and counting calories each day helps you to avoid over-eating, that may be a habit that you will want to keep long after your diet and maintenance phase is over.
