HCG diet is a good diet not only for those who want to lose a lot of weight but even for those who want to lose around 7 to 10 pounds. Dieters with goals to lose 7-10 pounds should follow the 26 day protocol. Here’s how to go about losing 7-10 pounds following the 26-day protocol:
You still begin the diet as everyone else does. Your first two days begin by gorging on whatever foods you like, particularly those that are high-fat high-calorie foods. At the same time, you start having your daily shot. After the loading days, on day three, you stop gorging and you will drop your food intake to 500 calories a day until you finish the 23 injections. The remaining days, you will continue with the 500 calories a day until the 26-day protocol is over. Take a look at this one:
2 days of loading with HCG injections
+ 21 days of 500 calorie diet with HCG injections
3 days of 500 calorie diet without the HCG injection
Your diet will start to vary after you reach your goal. You will probably get your goal weight in the late second or early third week as you lose around 1-2 pounds a day with the HCG Diet. Once you reached your goal weight, you will increase your calorie intake to 800-1000 calories a day to maintain your current weight but you will still continue having your daily injections of HCG.
