HCG Diet Phase 2 meal plate

You officially start phase 2 of your hCG diet on either the second or third day depending on which protocol you are following. During this time period, you cut your calorie intake down to 500 calories per day and follow a strict and structured meal plan. Learning various hCG phase 2 recipes is critical in helping you maintain the diet and lose weight. It will make you feel satisfied after every meal and stave off your hunger for longer periods throughout the day.

Steps Needed to Succeed With Your HCG Diet

HCG diet plan for successful weight lossHere are the steps that you need to succeed with your weight loss on the hCG diet drops. These steps let you feel like the pounds are melting away.

  1. Phase 1 (also known as the Loading Phase): Phase 1 or the Loading Phase lasts for two to three days. This is the start of your diet. Over the course of 48 to 72 hours, you are allowed to eat whatever you want. It is imperative that you increase your calorie consumption with fatty foods to help you succeed at your diet when you drop down to only 500 calories per day.
  2. Phase 2: Phase 2 starts on day two or three of your hCG diet. This is the time when you drop your calorie intake to only 500 calories per day. You will eat no breakfast, but you will enjoy lunch and dinner. You are also allowed to snack. However, you cannot exceed the required 500 calories per day if you wish to start losing weight and keep it off.
  3. Prepare Foods in Advance: When you embark on phase 2 of your hCG diet and you drop down to only 500 calories per day it is highly beneficial to prepare foods in advance to avoid temptation.
  4. Snacking: It is okay to cut your vegetable portions in half for lunch and dinner. Take the half of the vegetables that you save and prepare a small snack salad or munch on a couple of celery sticks to curb your appetite. You can also do the same with your melba toast cracker or your breadsticks. It is not necessary to consume all 500 calories during lunch and dinner. Instead, you can break it up a bit so you feel satisfied throughout the day and do not experience cravings. Some people will also not consume their fruit during lunch and dinner but pop a strawberry or crunch an apple wedge if they start to feel like they require a sugar fix midday.
  5. Drink Plenty of Fluids: Throughout the day you are encouraged to drink ample amounts of water, green tea, or black tea. Drinking a liquid is a wonderful way to feel full. It also keeps you hydrated and flushes out impurities in your system. You should drink half a gallon water per day on the hCG diet.  It is amazing how energized you will feel after drinking a refreshing glass of H2O.  If you opt to consume green or black tea, remember that you cannot put any sugar in the tea.
