HCG Load Days

I learned a few tricks about loading over the time I  was on HCG. The most important thing is to stick with protein and fats. Stay away from chips, bread, rice, etc. I love to eat cheesecake, ice cream, Johnsonville sausage, pre-packed hamburgers with bacon in them, get the idea.

 Before you start make sure you have read "Pounds and Inches" and you know exactly what you are getting into. This diet is hard b/c it requires willpower. You have to be in a good place mentally before you begin or your round will be a disaster.

I would stay away from alcohol b/c it will cause a big jump on the scale and it's really no reason for it during loading.

It is important to remember that you are supposed to eat to the point where you want to vomit. Loading is the only when you can gorge and it is acceptable. Don't beat yourself up or feel guilty about how much you are eating. It is your job to eat this much or you will be extremely hungry the first week on P2. You will not be happy and will definitely know you load incorrectly. (Trust me, been there...)

Take your dose before you eat and wait at least 30 mins. When I tried taking my shot and eating right after it made me sick within mins. The earlier you take you dose the better. That is for loading and during your round.

If you have any question or are not sure about what to eat, ask. There are plenty of veterans including myself that would be happy to help you.

P2 Teas...

While on P2 I had plenty of tea. I'm not a big water drinker and tea saved me and my losses. I used diffferent flavors: orange, cinnamon, blueberry, peppermint, spearmint, honey vanilla, jasmine, name it I tried it. However, no matter what flavor tea I used, I always mixed it with Oolong tea (a strong green tea) to make sure I receive some benefits to having so much tea. I also tried Yerba Mate but I couldn't tolerate the chocolate version...stalled me for some reason.

My advice to anyone trying to figure out what teas to use is to buy whatever flavor you like. I found that only one tea caused me issues. I would also say to mix it with a green tea.

This is the one I ordered from I paid $5.04 for a box of 100.

I still mix my teas with this one even when I'm not on P2.

Feel free to follow me and ask any questions. If you have a topic you would like for me to discuss, please send me an email:

HCG is what you make of it

I started using HCG long before it became so popular. When I started it was more underground and secretive. Now I hear ads on the radio on a regular basis. There are clinics springing up every where. It is amazing to see how popular the diet has become. However, despite the diet' growing popularity there are still critics. HCG is like any other diet: It will work for some and not for others. The diet requires disciple that some people just cannot handle. There are some who don't follow the diet and cheat non-stop then they want to say the diet doesn't work. There is a difference b/t being rogue and cheating. When considering the diet you have to be in a good place mentally and you have to honest with yourself as to whether or not you can stick to the plan.   You are the in charge of your own fate in life and with this diet. Don't set yourself up to fail and by no means call the diet a failure if you don't follow it completely. Please make sure you read "Pounds and Inches" thoroughly  

If you have any questions feel free to ask.
