Welcome to the MyHcgSource Blog Site

The purpose of setting up this hCG blog is to have a place where everyone can share with other users of hCG or to help out the new one that is doing the hCG diet protocol for the first time.

I have setup areas for questions about hCG, phase 2 or phase 3 recipes, how are you doing on the hCG diet? and final result testimonies. I would also like to hear how you are doing after you completed phase 3 and are back in everyday life.

Feel free to add to this blog and ask your questions and share your results with the hCG community.

    i am having difficulty finding out what to mix my drops with before taking them subliminally.
    where in the literature does it speak about this?
    thanks for any help

    • Leslie Penny December 11, 2010 at 10:29 am #

      Hi there! You don’t mix the drops with anything. You just lift up your tongue, count out ten drops in the mirror and keep your tongue in the roof of your mouth for 2-5 minutes before swallowing! There might be a little tingle at first but that goes away within 5-10 seconds. Good luck with your weight loss!! I’ve lost 12 pounds so far in 12 days..so a pound a day!!

      • Marci Cox January 25, 2011 at 11:09 am #

        Help! My question is “how large of the drops am I supposed to take since there is no measurement on the dropper?” Today is my first real day after loading. I’m concerned I took too much the first two days. I was filling the dropper up about 1/4 to 1/2. At that rate, I’ll run out before the 40 days.

        Is it a ‘tiny’ drop or 1/4 of the dropper???
        Thanks!

      Hi Kelli,
      Everything I’ve read says that you don’t mix the drops with anything. You just drop them one by one into your mouth. I use the pellets, which I dissolve under my tongue. I began this journey with my load last Sat/Sun and Day 1 was Monday. It is now the next Sunday (so it’s been 6 days on Phase 2) and I’m down 15.4 pounds. Incredible! I don’t feel hungry. I have energy, but not more than normal. It’s amazing. I would suggest you get on the blogs and read as much as you can. there is also another great site that I go to. I’ll come back and share that with you soon. Have fun!

    Even thou the hCG drops we sell are premixed homeopathic version, the mixing kits that are sold elsewhere are usually mixed with colloidal silver.

  3. jooleejules April 29, 2010 at 12:54 pm #

    kelli, if you bought your HCG drops from http://www.myhcgsource.com they are the drops that you don’t need to mix with anything. Just look in the mirror and drop 10 drops under you tounge and hold it for like 2 minutes or more. Do this 30 minutes before you eat!

  4. brownsugar April 29, 2010 at 8:50 pm #

    Kelli jooleejules is correct if you get the drops from http://www.myhcgsource.com you will not have to mix them. In addition I have taken hcg from other sites and this works better then the others that I have tried I think it is the way it is mixed. Try the site I sure you will like it.

    “Should women start taking hCG when on their period?” Why not?

    • shantae January 5, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

      I started the drops on the first day of my period. I am now on day 7 and i already lost 8 pounds

  6. brownsugar May 2, 2010 at 6:12 am #

    From what I have read you can however during your cycle you can gain water weight. If you keep taking the drops you will lose after water retention. So if you do not get depressed my the number going up for water weight go right ahead. However if you want to see results after your gorge days you will want to wait.

  7. KK118 May 2, 2010 at 8:42 pm #

    I am on day 4 of HCG diet and have lost 8 lbs I’m wondering if I could have a glass of wine. If I took it out of my calories. Can someone please give me advice on this.

    • vickie January 22, 2011 at 5:57 pm #

      I’m with you on the wine dilema! I am on day 5 and want a glass of wine too! But I am more determined to get this weight off so I not gonna do it! Good Luck!

  8. brownsugar May 3, 2010 at 10:38 am #

    Don’t do it if you take anything not on the diet you could set yourself back three days before you start to lose weight again. You could gain weight and in addition not get the benefits of resetting your metabolism.

  9. myHcgSource May 4, 2010 at 11:33 am #

    Alcohol in any form can not be drank during this diet, it is not about the calories, but alcohol contains lots of sugar, it will mess you up for days.

  10. Heidi May 5, 2010 at 6:16 pm #

    Can you still lose weight if you drink diet soda?

  11. myHcgSource May 5, 2010 at 8:39 pm #

    In the strict sense of the hCG diet plan, the answer is no. It also contains a lot of chemicals that are bad for good health. Will it affect your weight loss, maybe. different people react differently, if you try to drink diet soda and your weight stays the same for a couple of days, this is one thing I would eliminate entirely. A better choice would be to brew your own tea and add stevia to sweeten it to your liking.

  12. brownsugar May 5, 2010 at 10:37 pm #

    From what I have read you can have a lemon to add taste to your food. So instead of taking the lemon to season your food use it to make lemonade. Lemon water and stevia great on a hot day. Enjoy.

  13. KK118 May 7, 2010 at 4:32 am #

    @ Heidi

    I drank a half of Diet Dr. Pepper and gained 1 lb that day. Not worth it.

    I learned my lesson.

  14. KK118 May 9, 2010 at 3:19 pm #

    Does anyone know if you gain water weight when you are ovulating on the program? I am up 1lb and am doing great with my eating. It is D12 for me.

    • Jenni May 30, 2011 at 11:54 am #

      I always level out on my ovulation days or i might gain 1 to 2 pounds then after i ovulate im back to losing weight glad im not the only one that does this!

  15. brownsugar May 10, 2010 at 8:14 am #

    It is not the lack of calories in the diet soda it is the chemicals in the pop. You are right it is not worth the gain or the time you have to get back into fat burnig. Do not give up keep going.

  16. brownsugar May 10, 2010 at 8:16 am #

    You always gain water weight when it is that time of the month. Keep taking the drops and stay on the diet and the weight will come off. You will see a nice weight loss after your period.

  17. KK118 May 11, 2010 at 4:11 pm #

    I just had to order another bottle of (premixed) HCG. I took my drops but I feel a strong tingling under my tongue.And it has a scent to it.Is that normal? I bought it from “Category Creators” online. My first round was from “Ultra HCG” online and I didn’t have any tingling or scent to it.It tasted like water.

  18. alicia j May 13, 2010 at 9:44 pm #

    I am in my day 11 th in the past 8th day i lose one pound and gained back , i lost 9 pounds but the 10th gained and lose it , like that , what can posibly happen im doing the diet strictly

  19. brownsugar May 14, 2010 at 12:44 am #

    I have never had that happen. You should find out what they mixed it with. Some put Amino in it and that could be the difference. Or maybe it has more alcohol in it. Try getting it from myhcgsource.com never had that problem from them.

  20. brownsugar May 14, 2010 at 12:47 am #

    Are you getting oil or fat from your lotion, vitamins or hair products. Do the seasons you use have sugar in them?

  21. Ms. T May 15, 2010 at 6:20 pm #

    How much can you workout while on hcg.

  22. brownsugar May 15, 2010 at 8:04 pm #

    only light workout. You do not want to do any workout that would increase muscle mass and deplete fat reserves. I know sounds crazy a diet with very little exercise. You can do a lot of exercise when not taking the drops.

  23. Jessica May 20, 2010 at 10:38 pm #

    I was just wondering about the drops under the tounge… I have heard six drops six times per day and 10 drops before you eat. or 10 drops 3 times a day… does it matter when you take drops and how often should I take them?

  24. t_speakk May 24, 2010 at 8:41 pm #

    Thanks Brownsugar, I also wanted to know this. May I ask how much you have lost so far?

  25. brownsugar May 25, 2010 at 5:24 am #

    I have lost 63 pounds and have kept it off. I still have more to lose and will do another round in June.

  26. brownsugar May 25, 2010 at 5:26 am #

    I tried the 6 drops six times per day and did not lose as much as 10 drops 3 times per day. I guess you can try either way and see what works best for you.

  27. James May 26, 2010 at 12:26 am #

    I have lost 18 pounds in 5 days! Is this normal? And will the wieght lose decrease?

  28. brownsugar May 27, 2010 at 2:18 am #

    Man I wish I was you. 18 is great however in the book I read you should not lose more than 34 pounds in a round once you hit that number you should go on the maintenance phase and then in 6 weeks you can start again. You can start as early as three weeks after the drops are out of you system.

  29. Sam May 27, 2010 at 2:44 am #

    Hello. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Walden Farms Dressing and if it is okay. I know it contains zero grams of fat, calories, carbs, sugar and it is sweetened with sucrolose, but still not sure.

  30. brownsugar May 27, 2010 at 1:58 pm #

    Walden Farms Dressing has no fat, calories, carbs or sugar. However it is loaded with chemicals. Some have successfully used it during and it has not stalled them other have been stalled. Each person body is different. You can make your own dressing using vinegar, water, spices and stevia and be safe and not stall your progress. However you will have to try it to see if it stalls you if you do not want to make your own.

  31. VK May 28, 2010 at 8:02 pm #

    in the HCG weight loss guide the food chart says 4oz. of asparagus but the sample diet says i can have 2 cups which one do i follow?

  32. VK May 28, 2010 at 8:22 pm #

    This Saturday and Sunday is my load days start Monday on the 500 calorie. Very excited and nervous!

  33. myHcgSource May 28, 2010 at 10:23 pm #

    The correct amount of Asparagus to eat on the hcg diet protocol is 3.5 to 4 ounces, about a cup in size. I also have post a couple of recipes with asparagus in them on the recipe section of the blog. Let us know how you like them.

  34. spiritfeather May 29, 2010 at 4:19 pm #

    Hello all,My first dayog eatting what I want. I got up weighed my self and then took the drops.should I have waited and took the drops right before I eat or is it okthat I took them first thing? Thanks

  35. myHcgSource May 29, 2010 at 4:52 pm #

    Do not eat for 30 prior to or after taking the hcg drops, must be taken on an empty stomach. Post people take them in the morning, 30 minutes before luand and 30 minutes before dinner.

  36. VK May 30, 2010 at 6:33 pm #

    Can I use 1 table spoon of 2% lactose free milk on the 500 calorie phase?

  37. myHcgSource May 30, 2010 at 6:43 pm #

    Yes you can, only one per day thou. Try to get use to drinking it black.

  38. Jimmy June 1, 2010 at 11:32 pm #

    I was wondering if it is okay to skip one of my meals if I am not hungry, but still take the drops?

  39. brownsugar June 2, 2010 at 12:31 am #

    The diet works best when you follow the plan. However I fell asleep before and did not eat and still lost the pounds.

  40. hermine June 4, 2010 at 4:32 pm #

    i just got the drops did not come w/ instruction booklet what know

  41. myHcgSource June 4, 2010 at 8:44 pm #

    THe diet can be printed from the main website at myhcgsource.com. Or you can call 586-580-7004 and ask them to mail you one.

  42. sylvia June 5, 2010 at 3:09 pm #

    i work nights and drink water all night…at least 3 bottles. when i get home from work at about 6am i feel as if i could weigh less if i didnt drink so much water.i take my drops at 7am. do you have a solution for those of us who work nights….

  43. brownsugar June 7, 2010 at 10:09 am #

    You should drink half your body weight in water. So if you weigh 200 lbs you should drink 100 ounces. It does not matter what time of day you drink it. Just weigh yourself the same time of day and you get an accurate reading of wieght loss.

  44. SatnDoll June 14, 2010 at 2:22 am #

    I’m an African-American woman with chemical free hair. My hair thrives on certain oils (olive, coconut, grapseed, shea butter). Any suggestions for me while doing phase2. Please help

  45. CINDY June 16, 2010 at 4:33 am #

    How you can you be to use the hcg? How many bottles does it take to finish the 6 week program?

  46. michelle June 17, 2010 at 6:11 am #

    I was wondering I’m starting tomorrow have a question I work 6 nights in a row starting at 7pm to 730am and then off for 7 days what times should I eat and take my drops trying to figure out because when off I go to sleep at night….please give me some ideas..thanks

  47. wendy June 17, 2010 at 2:51 pm #

    If I take my first drops on rising, but have coffee about one hour later, will it interfere with that dose, as the drops are homeopathic. Has anyone had a problem with this?

  48. brownsugar June 19, 2010 at 11:05 am #

    one bottle last 40 days if you take it correctly.

  49. brownsugar June 19, 2010 at 11:09 am #

    If you can take them morning, noon, and evening it is easy to remember. or just take them when you first get up and 30 minutes prior to meals. Either will work. I was on a swing shift for a while going back and forth so I just took them morning, noon and night. It is hard to adjust your sleeping habits when you do not have a regular schedule. I hope you get enough sleep.

  50. brownsugar June 19, 2010 at 11:10 am #

    No problem with that I take my drops when rising and have coffee or tea 30 minutes later still lost weight.

  51. SatnDoll June 19, 2010 at 6:45 pm #

    WOW!!! I ordered my HCG on Thursday afternoon and it arrived TODAY! Saturday that is. Love that kind of service. I do hope this program is as good as the service I’ve received so far. This is my first time using this stuff. I’ll keep you guys updated on the progress (or lack thereof). But I am optimistic…. wish me losses – weight losses that is :-)

  52. John June 21, 2010 at 6:39 pm #

    Can you take high blood pressure medicine while taking HCG? If so, are there any meds you shouldn’t take?

  53. traci June 22, 2010 at 3:37 am #

    will taking estrogen effect the diet?

  54. CINDY June 23, 2010 at 10:01 pm #

    JUST GOT ORDER TODAY. SHOULD I PUT IN FRIG OR @ ROOM TEMP?

  55. myHcgSource June 24, 2010 at 1:59 pm #

    We are not medical doctors here, but I do know that in many cases, while on this diet blood pressure can drop, so I would keep a close eye on it.

  56. myHcgSource June 24, 2010 at 2:11 pm #

    As long as you keep it out of prolonged heat over 80 degrees, you will be fine.

  57. cindy June 26, 2010 at 1:46 am #

    can you chew gum, and if no why? can you trade veggies for v8 juice?

    • Jaynut November 30, 2010 at 11:23 am #

      am also curious if I can chew gum….Also I do not have a scale….Approx how much is a serving of protien? deck of cards? and veggies Cup?

  58. brownsugar June 27, 2010 at 3:17 am #

    They only way you will not lose weight is if you do not follow the diet. So do not cheat and you should lose 21 pounds in 21 days.

  59. brownsugar June 27, 2010 at 3:20 am #

    I am on HRT and it does not effect the diet. I have had not trouble losing weight.

  60. SatnDoll June 27, 2010 at 1:33 pm #

    I’ve wieghed myself for the last 3 days and have been at the same wieght. I initally dropped 4 lbs but the scale in the last 3 days. I’ve been very careful to stick to protocal. I have had more energy so I do more around the house and take a walk in the evenings. could that be throwing things off? Any help or suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

  61. ANGIE June 28, 2010 at 5:25 am #

    how about if I forgot to take HCG 30 min before meal? should I take it after meal anyway ?

  62. TxGirl June 29, 2010 at 6:55 pm #

    I read in my diet book that coconut oil is a good alternative. I think that may be the best choice of oils for this diet.

  63. SatnDoll June 29, 2010 at 8:01 pm #

    This is my 2nd week (8 days)on the plan and I have lost about 7 lbs. Just thought I’d update on my progress. I can especially tell I’m losing just my looking at my body. WOW! A few inches really makes a difference. It does seem like the scales should be down more just based on the inch losses. Not sure of the numbers on that but I put my hands on my hips while talking this morning and had to pause for a moment :-) Loving it!

  64. myHcgSource June 30, 2010 at 2:52 am #

    It sounds like you are on track and doing good, weight will vary based on water weight, a three day average is more accurate.

  65. myHcgSource June 30, 2010 at 2:57 am #

    yes but wait an hour, needs to be taken on an empty stomach. no drink or food 30 minutes before taking drops and after taking drops.

  66. myHcgSource June 30, 2010 at 3:46 pm #

    Most prescription drugs are safe to take while on hCG, One word of caution is drugs that affect blood sugar levels and blood pressure, both of these can drop while on hCG and should be monitored by your doctor.

  67. Virgo July 1, 2010 at 5:47 pm #

    Today is my P2D5 and have lost 9 lbs. Is it ok to lose weight of total 37 lbs? I know that the threshold is 34 lbs. What happens if you lose more than 34 lbs. What are the consequences??

  68. John July 2, 2010 at 1:41 am #

    I’ve ordered and received my HCG starter kit from you. On the bottle it states 10 drops 3 times a day. In the starker kit book it states .5 on the syringe. These are totaly 2 different ammounts. Which is correct???

  69. cindy July 5, 2010 at 11:03 pm #

    I think it is the same amount. I would use a measuring spoon 1/8 tsp and then use the syring to draw it up. Should measure .5. Hope that helped.

  70. Cathy July 6, 2010 at 1:37 am #

    I have just started this plan and I cant seem to see where on the diet menu it says how much or amount of vegetables and fruit. All I saw was a handful of strawberries….not how much of the vegetables…just says 1 meat, 1 vegetable, 1 melba toast etc. Can anyone tell me how much of a serving to eat? Even the lettuce salad?? How much??

  71. BigMomma July 14, 2010 at 12:25 am #

    Kudos to you on your weight loss and your ability to stay on track. I am on day 2 of phase2 and have not lost anything yet. I am not going to get discouraged yet but I thought that I would at least see a pound in 2 days. I have 30 to lose.

  72. BigMomma July 14, 2010 at 3:13 pm #

    P2D3 I am doing ok. I dropped 2 pounds, So I guess I need to continue to be patient and continue to follow the VLCD to a tee.

  73. Janet July 15, 2010 at 3:33 pm #

    I followed the diet just as instructed. Gained 2lbs. for the first 2 days gorging. Lost 5lbs in 7 days. The weight I lost anybody could lose just by eating only 500 calories per day. I starved those 7 days. I have kept the 5 lbs off just by watching what I eat. I have witnessed people losing 40 lbs. on the HCG drops; however, they got theirs from the clinic. The HCG drops from myhcgsource.com are not the true HCG drops. I tasted a friends that came from a clinic and they did not taste like alcohol, matter of fact the drops didn’t taste bad at all from a clinic.

    • Fly Girl January 14, 2011 at 2:25 pm #

      Janet: Sounds like you just stayed on the protocol for a week. If you read the information, you would see that you need to stay on the protocol for AT LEAST 21 days to get the effects. Also, I don’t think you would have lost the 5 lobs AND kept it off if you only ate 500 calories without the drops. Before you bash something, you should follow the plan correctly–make sure you do your research BEFORE commenting.

      Since your friend has had such success at the Clinic, did you go there? If you are serious about losing the weight, that is what you should do.

  74. SatnDoll July 15, 2010 at 5:22 pm #

    I suggest you run to the clinic and don’t look back. For those of us who’ve been on it more than a week and love the results we’re getting – we will continue on in the idiotic way of successfully losing weight. Why “phoo phoo” on someone elses’ party. If it doesn’t work for you just move on. Oh… and try reading Dr S book prior to commenting.

  75. BigMomma July 15, 2010 at 6:41 pm #

    Janet, I have gained a pound on day 3 but I think that it may have been water weight. As we know, everyone is going to respond a little different on any diet plan. Hopefully, you will find what you are looking for. As for me, I am in it to win it right now and will continue until I at least am out of drops.

  76. BigMomma July 15, 2010 at 6:49 pm #

    Janet, I have gained a pound on day 4 but I think that it may have been water weight. As we know, everyone is going to respond a little different on any diet plan. Hopefully, you will find what you are looking for. As for me, I am in it to win it right now and will continue until I at least am out of drops.

  77. melissa July 16, 2010 at 2:06 pm #

    I just got my drops in the mail today.. I started out with hcgplatinum drops from GNC. I lost 23pounds in 18 days. Then I ran out of them and decided to give myhcgsource a try.. I will post and keep you updated on my progress..

  78. myHcgSource July 17, 2010 at 11:51 am #

    Yes water weight can be a issue while on the hcg diet, I have see times were people have held the same wait for three days maybe even gaining a pount and on the forth day had a weight loss all at once in the range of 3 pounds. Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water al lday long.

  79. brownsugar July 17, 2010 at 7:24 pm #

    I checked out GNC and it cost 89.00 for one ounce you need more than an ounce to do the diet correctly so it would cost you 178.00 plus tax to do one round. I could do 4 round buying from myhcgsource so I know I will lose more weight in four rounds for 160 then one round for 178

  80. BigMomma July 18, 2010 at 12:48 pm #

    I am on D7P2 and have lost 6lbs so far. I thought that I would have lost more in the beginning and then sort of tapered off towards the end of the phase. I have about 30 lbs to lose total. Should I try to exercise to help the process

    • Fly Girl January 14, 2011 at 2:31 pm #

      Don’t be discouraged! Am just starting my 2nd round. I had around 60 lbs. to lose. I lost 22 lbs. on my first round (average of 4 lb. per week) and 2 pant sizes! I have kept most of it off for 3 months (even over Christmas!) and am still in my size 12 pants! (Last Aug. couldnt button or fully zip my 16’s). Would I have liked to lose more? Absolutely! Am I sad? NO! 2 sizes is notihing to sneeze at and I am looking forward to more success…AND walking that hr. per day might help me a bit on this round. Good luck to you!

  81. myHcgSource July 18, 2010 at 1:15 pm #

    As far as exercise, people who do get very hungry afterwords, I would recommend walking, that will help. 6 pounds is not that bad for one week. the average weight loss is 1/2 to one pound a day and you are in that range. I am on day 8 of phase 2 right now and this is my sencond round. I am up .8 a pound today but down a total of 9 so far this time. The weight does vary on the day to day side of things but averages out in the end. I see things go in three cycles a lot of times, little weight loss or slight gain and all of a sudden a bigger lost occures. It must have to do with how much water you drink, how often you empty out. It seems on some days you just hold on to the water a few days. So stick to the hcg plan and it should work out in the end.

    As far as 30 pounds, it could take you 40 days to get there, I don’t believe it will happen in 21, that would be too big of a number for most clients. If your weight loss stalls for more than 6 days, you may up the drops by 25% or do a apple or steak day to kick start it again. You could do the diet until you are down about 20 pounds and start another round after 6 weeks to go for the rest. Hope it goes well with you.

  82. BigMomma July 18, 2010 at 1:40 pm #

    Thank you for the response. My expectation for the first 21 days was approximately 18 lbs. I just thought that I would see more off in the beginning as I have in the past when losing weight. I would be quite pleased with that number to start. I am planning on doing 2 rounds to achieve the 30 lb goal. I need to go into maintainence by August 6th. So I still have a ways to go to see any additional lbs lost. Thank you for the encouragement and advice

    Has anyone had their face break out in a rash that looks similar to acne?

  84. jooleejules July 23, 2010 at 2:40 pm #

    Yeah! Not too bad and not a rash. But my skin seems oily, similar to when I start my period. I even got a couple pimples on my neck and I never usually get them there. But they are going away now. I’m in week 2 of phase 2.

  85. Rita Abernethy July 23, 2010 at 8:00 pm #

    Icalled the number and was told that I have to BUY the list and book. Not fair.

  86. SatnDoll July 23, 2010 at 9:47 pm #

    The diet overview is free and on the main page. Go to the top of this page and click “HCG Diet Info” it will take you to the main page. On the left is a link for the diet overview. I just copied and pasted it on a word doc and printed it out. And just so I could take a small copy of the foods within the diet I printed just that block (in gray) on a separate sheet and keep it in my purse.

    Also you will want a copy of Dr. Simeons manuscript so you’ll have real information on hand and not just what everyone else is saying. Hope this helps.

    Don’t drink the wine. The sugar content will really hinder you. If it isn’t in the protocol it shouldn’t pass your lips:0)

    While I’m not a woman I do know that your body will retain water when it is low on water. People think if they drink more water they will retain more, but it is opposite. If you keep your body hydrated it’ll retain less water.

    Does anyone know if you can still lose weight just by counting the calories and not necessarily following the strict diet plan? I live in a dorm and I’m not able to cook chicken or steak…but if I stay under 500 calories and don’t eat a lot of sugary foods, will I still lose weight?

  91. Rita August 3, 2010 at 3:20 am #

    if i do the 40 day plan how long to i go before I do another round. I need to lose 40 to 50 pounds.

    I had just put about 6 drops under my tongue when my phone rang and it being work I had to pick up and swallow without letting it sit for the 2 min recommended. Should I take more drops now?

  94. Cindy G August 4, 2010 at 10:15 pm #

    Drops go under the tongue. Try to let them sit there for 2 min before swallowing

    I started HCG on 7-21-10 at 173 lbs., today I am down 13 lbs. It would have been more but I ate at Golden Corral with my husband – ue to my job I hadn’t seen him all week. Next day I was up 4.6 lbs. It took 4 days for the scale to move again, so don’t cheat, it’s not worth it. I also got stuck at an old set point for 3 days prior to that, just do the protocol and have patience and it will come off.
    Good luck to everyone

    This happens to me all the time, it never fails, I have a mouthful of drops and have to talk to a customer. I don’t take more drops. Doesn’t seem to have harmed me.

    I’ve used “Tom’s” brand deodorant and they also make toothepaste. Also Aveeno makes a great lotion and other items as well – I think they make shampoo and conditioner. Good luck.

  99. donna August 10, 2010 at 9:07 pm #

    why can’t you work out to increase muscle while on the drops? I’m just wondering because I want to start this diet but don’t want to give up my work outs.

  100. John August 10, 2010 at 9:49 pm #

    I worried about this too, but if you read the book or do a little research on line it has to do with your body buring the fat and not muscle for maximum weight loss. If you’ve been working out regulary, then I suggest you don’t stop but tone it down a tad. More cardio and less muscle building would be my safe bet. I think the intent is for you not to start working out all of a sudden and then go on the diet. That’s bad, as your 500 calorie diet will reak havok on your muscles if your not used to it. Only my suggestion, but it worked for me.

  101. Sandi August 15, 2010 at 3:50 pm #

    I have been on the diet for 40 days and have lost 30 pounds I found it hard to get started with the food prep but after doing all the cooking & putting it in individual bags in the freezer it was easy after that. I will be starting maintenance on Tuesday. Even if I had not lost that amount of weight the biggest win for me is I am now off my blood pressure medication that I have been on longer that I can remember went to the Doctor this week and she was thrilled.

  102. jojo August 17, 2010 at 11:39 pm #

    There are so many suppliers of hcg. Each with different size bottles, 1 oz = 21 days; 2 ounce= 30 to 40 days and 4 ounce = 30 to 40 days. All with the same dosage of 10 drops/3x day. No one seems to be able to tell the concentration of the hcg or explain.
    Any comments?

    I. Just purchase a couple bottle w myhcgsource.com. I too had the same tingle feeling like her. Is that means its not working? I also have taken more There 10 drop because, first couple of time I didn’t wait up to 3 min? Will it harm me? And also drank before and after too soon after my drop, should I retake it? Please help reply. Thanks

    how long do one of these 2oz bottles last…like how many days per bottle

  110. ruthie August 25, 2010 at 5:07 pm #

    I am on my second week of the drops and have lost 12 pounds – here is my problem – please help! I hate meat (chicken, fish also) – can anyone give me the name of a Protein shake that will not affect the diet that I can substitute for the meat? thank you!

  111. myHcgSource August 26, 2010 at 12:07 am #

    A bottle at the recommended dose last 40 days, use a mirror when taking drops.

  112. brownsugar September 4, 2010 at 12:37 am #

    There is a vegan protocol

  113. brownsugar September 4, 2010 at 12:39 am #

    You can use eggs and cottage cheese google vegan protocol

  114. Shelia Higgins September 4, 2010 at 12:47 am #

    the 3x, 6 x,etc has to do with the dilution of the product and suction of product. How many time the product is mixed. http://www.myhcgsource is physician grade and works great no complaints.

  115. Shelia Higgins September 4, 2010 at 12:48 am #

    if you cheat it will take 2 to 3 days to get back into fat burning mode not worth it

  116. Shelia Higgins September 4, 2010 at 12:49 am #

    only one veggie per meal follow the protocol for best results

  117. Shelia Higgins September 4, 2010 at 12:51 am #

    contact http://www.sdwdinc.com for info on protein shake and meal replacement bar that will not effect the diet.

  118. sherry September 6, 2010 at 6:20 pm #

    My question is does anyone know how this diet affects those people that smoke?

  119. sarah September 6, 2010 at 7:10 pm #

    can i get a false positive pregnancy test while on the hcg drops????

  120. brownsugar September 6, 2010 at 9:23 pm #

    To my knowledge it works the same way I know people who smoke and take the product they have the same results as non-smokers. However of course I would encourage you to quit smoking it would be good for your health.

  121. brownsugar September 6, 2010 at 10:00 pm #

    To my knowledge there is not enough of the protein in the homeopathic drops to cause a false positive however you should consult with your doctor.

  122. Shelia September 6, 2010 at 10:08 pm #

    On all homeopathic formulas you should see an equation of dilution and succussion, something like 6X, 12X, 30X, 60X. This represents the potentization of the homeopathic formula. In the science of homeopathy it is believed this process minimizes the physical presence of an ingredient while maximizing the biological signature or signal of the active ingredient. By design this signals the body to react to the presence of the ingredient or (signal)… without the negative side effects of large doses of the active ingredient. on the other hand, is measured by equation (6X, 12X, 30X, 60X) and has very little of the physical presence of the hCG, however through the succession process the hCG signal to the body is highly potentized. This results in a positive reaction by the body with greatly reducing side effects. This measure of safety results in allowing the Homeopathic hCG to be sold over the counter without a prescription. I hope this helps.

  123. sarah September 7, 2010 at 5:08 pm #

    how many days does it take to get hcg out of your system?

  124. Shelia September 8, 2010 at 1:54 am #

    Two to three days you will start to feel hungry again.

    • Leslie Penny December 11, 2010 at 11:57 am #

      HAHA….I’ve been on the drops for 12 days and have lost 12 pounds!! I FEEL HUNGRY ALL THE TIME!!!!!

      • admin December 13, 2010 at 1:59 pm #

        I have been doing the diet again after coming back from a 7 day cruise 10 pounds heavier. It is working great, I am on Day 8 and I have lost 14 pounds. I love this diet, it actually works! As far as feeling hungry, I would increase my drops, this should help. You can safely go from ten to fifteen or as high as twenty at a time if you like. see what it takes. I am not hungry on the hCG diet. I do desire some foods that I can’t eat, but that is just my mouth talking. The weight loss is worth sticking to the hCG plan. Three weeks isn’t that long. I have read in other places that some people need more drops because the absorption rate may be different. Make sure that you shake the bottle first and hold them under the tongue for at least two minutes before swallowing the drops.

  125. tina September 10, 2010 at 2:20 am #

    can you chem chewing gum

  126. VK September 10, 2010 at 3:32 pm #

    I bought mine from myhcgsource.I find a bit of irritation on the tip of my tongue. I don’t care for the taste but will get use to it I guess. (day 2)I also feel a bit of stomach upset.

  128. Shelia September 18, 2010 at 12:34 am #

    not recommended because the chewing of gum can make you hungry. If you must do it make sure it is sugar free

  129. Alease September 19, 2010 at 2:21 am #

    Hello I was just wondering if I order what all is mixed in with your sublingual ? I need to lose about 50 pounds how long of a round should I aim for? How many bottles will I need?

  130. Minor October 3, 2010 at 7:35 pm #

    I love the hcg diet so far…i have been on the diet for 9 days including my 2 gorge days and have lost 12 pounds!….but…i cheated on day 7…I had oatmeal apple muffins(2) and 2 small fried chicken wings….i am continuing to take the drops and i have not gained or lost any more weight…any suggestions? i hope i have not messed it up for myself…should i start from scratch??

    Answer; normally when we hear about cheating, it normally takes three days before you start to see the weight loss again, yes, stay on the diet plan and do not go off, it will work out in the end.

  131. BigMomma October 4, 2010 at 1:16 pm #

    I failed the first time around but I am starting again. I finished my two load days and today is my first day of VLCD. My question is “do you think I will still lose weight if i decide to fast during the day and just eat the one 500 calorie meal at dinner?”

    • Fly Girl January 14, 2011 at 2:38 pm #

      Good luck! Eat twice a day if you can! Stay with it…it will work IF YOU FOLLOW THE PROTOCOL EXACTLY AS IT IS! A lot of research went into this diet…trust it!

      How much total do you have to lose? Keep us all updated on your progress.

  132. Determined October 23, 2010 at 1:40 pm #

    I’m on Day 6 of P2 and have lost 10 pounds, but I still feel weak and not well with a dull headache. Any suggestions? Can you increase your drops or does that make a difference? When do you start to get energy that I hear is suppose to happen?

  133. Laraaaa October 25, 2010 at 6:12 pm #

    I had lost 20 lbs in 30 days with the injection type HCG diet, and was not able to keep it off. I am committed to paying more attention to my eating habits after the weight is off during maintainence and not let the bad habits creep back, so I know HCG works, I just need to follow through after. I have a question though, I am hearing that the drops are not the same thing and are not effective as the injections. Can someone tell me the truth? also, anyone have done both and can tell me the difference??

  134. Determined October 25, 2010 at 8:47 pm #

    I don’t know about the injections but I am on the drops and I have lost 13.7 pounds after 7 days on Phase 2 of the diet. Hope that helps.

  135. Dee October 26, 2010 at 4:56 pm #

    I’m on my second day of 500 cal diet, but I’m still unsure as to whether the product I have that contains alcohol does work. There are so many different variations of this diet its overwhelming. My bottle says 12x, 30x, 60X with 20% U.S.P. alcohol. Is this still effective or am I just doing a 500 cal diet? I also forgot to take my drops before I ate lunch. How do I make this up?

  136. Dee October 26, 2010 at 5:22 pm #

    I have read that we can have an orange for one of our fruits, is this correct?

  137. Ilene October 28, 2010 at 10:39 pm #

    I am almost through the protocal once and am now in the last 3 weeks (maintenance)…lost 28 lbs in 35 days,, and my 2 fruits were an orange in the afternoon and an apple at night’

  138. Ilene October 28, 2010 at 10:48 pm #

    to Dee…yes an orange is fine. lost 28 lbs in 35 days….in last 3 weeks of protocol.

    I have ordered the hcg and am geared to start. I have seen numerous people who need to lose 30 to 50 pounds but I need to lose over 100. Is there anyone trying to do the same? Is there anyone that has done it already/how long did it take?

    • vickie January 26, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

      I am trying to loose at least 80 pounds 100 would be awesome! I am on day 9 and have lost 15 pounds.

    • Mikki February 2, 2011 at 3:27 pm #

      Kelly,
      Congratulations on choosing to become a healthier and thinner version of yourself.
      Many who have done HCG had targeted weight loss like yours.
      As a women you can expcet to lose 1.2 to 1 lb equivalent per day. I suggest you focus on being very tight to the exact program in Pounds and Inches with no modifications. I recommend you set three goals GOOD, GREAT , AWESOME. Good will be losing 15 lbs but remember it is going to be always targeted at the build up of troublesome fat often in our midsection. GREAT might be a number that equates to the number of days you are on your plan x1lb per day. So 26-40 lbs. And awesome would be to out perform the expectations of the plan. It can happen but do expect predictable results and know it is weight loss that improves your BMI and typically reduces your abdominal girth. Both of thes accomplishments will vastly improve your health, and general well being. After the required 6 week break, you can repeat a round of HCG and take your weight down further. It is a process and one you want to do with respect for the research behind it. My Very Best to you,
      Mikki Funderburke RN

  146. Shannon January 12, 2011 at 7:31 pm #

    I am curious if splenda is the same as stevia as far as the diet goes? I am looking for something to put in my coffee. Also, does it matter how much you use?

    Thanks

    • Mikki February 2, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

      Splenda is sucralose and is not allowed in the Phase 2 of the diet.
      This will modify your results.

    As far as steak goes for protein, can you use No Name Steaks as long as they are plain?

  148. Chin Kee January 29, 2011 at 9:59 pm #

    I started the HCG diet in Nov 2010 and lost 17lbs. I did not complete stage 3 of the protocol. I gained 5 lbs. I just started it again. The first time around I used the Mediral Homeopathic HCG with amino acids. This time I am using the hcg from myhcgsource. It is homeopathic but does not say with amino acids on the bottle. Can someone please tell me if that makes a difference>

    • Mikki February 2, 2011 at 3:43 pm #

      My pharmacist suggests that additives within the homeopathic version of HCG can compete with the actions of the HCG.
      But this is a snippet of what Amino Acids are:

      Why do Amino Acids matter?
      After eating proteins the gut and intestine break them down, proteins then appear in the bloodstream as amino acids. These are then used in the body for various processes such as the synthesis of new proteins.

      Your heart, liver and many other organs are made of protein, skeletal muscle contains about 20% protein (most of it is actually water), your hair and skin is made of protein, there are numerous enzymes and liver proteins made in your body every day; all are synthesized from incoming amino acids from the diet.

      So the intent of the mixed bottle of HCGwith amino acid souces is there to imply additional amino acids will further support you with these additives.
      My husband has tried both with little difference in how he felt while continuing to eat the 3.5 oz servings of protein allowed on the HCG diet. He did not lose as much weight with his bottle containing the Amino Acids. It is certainly difficult to distinguish what other variables were a factor.
      You have to make a choice. Hundreds before you have opted for straight HCG from a reliable source as discerned by Dr. D.

  150. A West February 1, 2011 at 5:36 pm #

    I have been doing Atkins for about 3 weeks, and have seemingly stopped losing already. I want to switch to the HcG method, bought the drops (homeopathic), for the gorge days I don’t want to go back to sugar – it was really hard to get off it the first time! What is ‘enough’ gorging, and the right foods if you are doing real foods and not sugar foods? I am at about 150 now, and should weigh about 135.

    What does 10 drops mean? 10 small drops or 10 drops up to the 1ml line?

    • admin February 8, 2011 at 11:56 am #

      Look in a mirror as you dispense 10 drops from the dropper. Do not let them “squirt”. Its probably the “small” drops you describe.

  152. Fly Girl February 6, 2011 at 12:33 pm #

    How do I break a set-point? In 24 days on round 2 I have only dropped 8 lbs. & an average of 1 inch from each measure point (3 inches per point during round 1 in 5 weeks). I realized that I am stuck where I had settled several years ago after losing weight…a place I stayed at for several years before menopause and a significant weight gain. I can’t seem to get below this weight… I am 5′ 2″ and really need to lose 30-40 more lbs. and more inches off my torso. HELP!

    • admin February 8, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

      Phase 2 is designed for weight loss and Phase 3 is designed to lock in the new “set-point”. That’s why it is critical to follow Phase 3 directions. If you find that you’ve stalled in your weight loss during Phase 2, try following some of the suggestions from our hCG Plateau Breakers page.

      Today is also my first gorge day. Woohoo! I am excited. I’ve had three friends do this and lose significantly. I’m so ready. I have 80 pounds to lose. What about you?

    I am in the secound week of my third time doing the diet and I have, at this point, lost 54 pounds. For all of you that are just beginning I want to wish you well and I say GGGGGOOOOO it work if you work it correctly. I feel so great and still have 50 more to go. The maintence is so important to do. SO VERY IMPORTANT Afer the first time I followed it and went through Christmas Holidays and did NOT gain weight. Yes I ate Holiday goodies but in moderation but I had some of it all, even fudge!!! Now the secound round I did NOT follow the maintence closley enough and I gained about 5 pounds. I had to get that off at the start of this third round so this time I actualy have lost more then I give myself credit for because I don’t count the five pounds as weight loss that I gained back. The 54 pounds is taking the weight from this morning and subtracting it from the weight I recorded the very first day I started back last fall. Keep all your paperwork and record your progress daily. It is encouraging to look back to where your were and now where you are. God Bless and go for it……IT WORKS! <3

      Wow. I am on Day 1 of the gorging. I have 80-100 pounds to lose. But, I’m encouraged and I’m ready. I want to make some new friends here and not try to do this journey alone. Thanks for your encouragement. I do have a question. I’m using the drops. I read different info in different places. I take 4 drops 3x a day. Is that enough?

      • admin April 28, 2011 at 9:18 am #

        Follow the instructions on the hCG bottle. Our product instructs to take 10 drops 3x daily.

        How are you doing? I originally had 65 to lose. Am now down 37 with 24 more lbs. to go. I am on my 3rd round…although the 2nd wasn’t as successful as I had hoped because I had to break through a set-point. I am now 4 lbs. below that set point… (YAY!) and am on my way!!! Have been losing 1/2 lb. per day…not as much as some, but it is OK (my friend has lost 12 lbs. in 12 days!). I have 3 more weeks to go, then I will transition CORRECTLY and do another round in August.

        Good Luck and be sure to keep us all posted…we care!

      • Rhondalyn May 16, 2011 at 4:17 pm #

        Thats not enough, you are suppose to take 10 drops 3 times a day. I have lost 12lbs in only 8 days

    Hi, I recently received my first bottle of hcg drops and noticed that it lists two ingredients: hcg and 16% USP ethanol alcohol. I am currently in a recovery program that monitors my progress with monthly drug screens- sometimes twice a month. Will the alcohol content in the drops build up in my system and show up on a drug screen?

    • admin April 5, 2011 at 2:12 pm #

      It probably wouldn’t show up, but there is no certainty. A viable option for you might be to use the hCG Pellets.

  160. D Rutherford April 6, 2011 at 9:03 pm #

    Thanks, I’ll look into that.

    I first used the hcg injections last June 2010 and lost 25 lbs with no side effects. Over the last 6 months, lots of holidays, I put back on 10 lbs. I decided to purchase the sublingual drops this time and started using them 5 days ago, today being day 5. I have had some side effects this time and would like some advise.

    Day 1&2 were binge days, but didn’t go so well. After being on the diet last year I have really done well not overeating and felt kinda sick after binging. Anyway, on the eve of day 3 I started with a headache that lasted through the night and throughout day 4. I took 6 Ibuprophens throughout the day and this eventually worked. This morning, day 5, I had horrible cramps in my ovaries. Needless to say, I got my period with a vengence. I had surgery on my tubes in November of 2009 and haven’t had my flow since then. My Doctor said this was common occurance with this type of surgery, I am 50 years old.

    My question to you, is this normal, should I continue on the drops? Why didn’t I have this happen while using the injections?

    • admin April 16, 2011 at 4:02 pm #

      I would suggest you discontinue use of the hCG and consult with your doctor.

    I am on day 4 of my diet, it was going great until I gave in and had 3 small chocolates about the size of a pigeon’s egg. Now I am worried that this will mess up the phase 2 of my programme. What can I do, I did some excerises but I am still worried.

    • admin April 16, 2011 at 4:07 pm #

      Just continue on the diet normally. The cheat should work itself out and weight loss will continue.

  163. SPRING VANCLEAVE April 18, 2011 at 6:35 pm #

    I am on day four. (Day 2 after gorge days). I just started my period this morning. I woke up with a terrible headache which I attributed to lack of sugar/caffeine. Then I got sick to my stomach. I should have had 10 days on hcg before my period came. Do I stop taking the hcg? Since I just started should I just “start over” and start gorging? Some chocolate would make me feel way better! I lost 5lbs overnight (still haven’t lost what I gained on gorge days yet), but weighed myself this afternoon & I have gained 1.6lbs. I read that if you have take too much hcg you can gain weight. Do you think I have too much in my system from my period & adding hcg is what is making me gain? I also read it is best to start immediately after your period is over. My periods last 3 days. That is why I am wondering if I should just “start over”.

    I ordered my HCG drops today and was wondering how the diet should go if I only want to lose 10lbs-12lbs or so. Between exercise and relatively healthy eating I only have a small amount to lose, but have not been able to get those last pounds off so I wanted to try HCG. Any suggestions?

  165. Lina May 4, 2011 at 10:10 pm #

    I am on day 10 of phase 2. I have lost 10 lbs. but I am constantly hungry after dinner. I have to drink alot of green tea to stay full. Every night I go to bed feeling so hungry that I am tempted to quit. Taking drops as directed 1o 3X a day. I don’t want to give up. Should I increase drops? Please let me know soon.

    • admin May 6, 2011 at 2:10 pm #

      You should definitely try increasing you dosage.

  166. Rhondalyn May 16, 2011 at 4:12 pm #

    I have been on the hcg drops for 8 day now, and I have lost a total of 12 pounds. I am not hungry, some days I have to force myself to eat. I can’t believe how well I am doing on this diet.

  167. heidi June 15, 2011 at 8:16 pm #

    For women of color who NEED oils in their hair, I would suggest using mineral oil for your hair and skin when its wet ( I know that may suck, but it beats being ashy and dry hair) because it doesn’t absorb and as far as I know, and it is allowed on Phase 2 of the protocol. Also, maybe try a low maintenance hairstyle while you’re on Phase 2 (braids, twists, only using water and mineral oil or baby oil on your hair. Be prepared for a super deep conditioning once phase 2 is over!)

  170. heidi June 21, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    hi there everone I am on day 23 of p2 ans i havent gotten my period should i be worried??

  171. Gail June 24, 2011 at 1:33 pm #

    I started the HCG diet 4 days ago and have lost 6 lbs. I’m learning to drink green tea without sweetener and drinking plenty of water. Want to lose at least 25lbs, 18lbs to go.

  172. Svetlana Mathews June 27, 2011 at 9:15 pm #

    Today is my 2nd day of gorging. I’m so excited and sooooo nervous about starting the 500 calorie diet tomorrow. I would love to loose 50 pounds, but I would be glad to even loose 30 – 40 pounds. Me and my husband are planning to have another child, so I need to loose the weight.

    • Lyn July 11, 2011 at 9:02 am #

      Svetlana,
      How have you done since your June 27th post. I start the gorge tomorrow and I feel the same, nervous about following it to the letter. I would like the money I spent for the drops to pay off plus I want to loose my spare tire at my waste and the excess on my hips. Have tried so many different diets. Some with great success but it always starts to creep back. This one seems to be the trick to defrag the body, if you will.
      Good luck to you and me and everyone as well. Hope to see more posts from you so I can know your progress. I will do the same.

  173. Svetlana Mathews June 28, 2011 at 11:52 am #

    I have a question. I saw online one video recipe of steak and mushrooms. Mushrooms are not on the list of the allowed vegetables. Can we still eat them?

  174. Lyn July 10, 2011 at 8:49 pm #

    I’m beginning this week. Wanted to begin on the blog so I can ask questions or make comments as I go. Has anyone watched the recipe videos? I assume that in the recipes with the tomato based sauce, the sauce is counted as the vegetable with that meal?

    • Regina gordon July 14, 2011 at 11:49 am #

      Lyn I just watched one of the recipe videos for some buffalo chicken. She marinated the chicken in vinegar, water and cayenne pepper for a couple of hours, then place them on a cookie sheet and sprinkled chili poweder on them and baked them at 350 degrees until they were brown. She served them with celery sticks.

    Just started on Saturday with Saturday and Sunday as my gorge days. Day 1 on the 500 calorie and so far so good. Not sure if I’ll ever get used to drinking black coffee, so I just my eliminate it for now. I’ll post my progress every couple days. Good luck to you :-)

    • Lyn July 12, 2011 at 12:07 pm #

      Today and tomorrow are my gorge days. I have so many questions but seems when posted not many get answered. Is there a better place to go. Perhaps I’m in the wrong area. Will just have to see how things go.

      • Regina gordon July 14, 2011 at 11:56 am #

        Hi Lyn, I’m on day 4 of PH2 and I’m down 6lbs…yay…yay. Eat until you’re full and make sure you take your hcg drops before every meal. I’ve learned to split my meals and fruit. I’ll eat an apple of orange in the morning, maybe a breadstick/melba toast an hour or so before lunch, then I’ll eat my lunch and that will hold me until I get home from work. Make sure you drink plenty of water, coffee, tea, lemon water or lemonade made with fresh lemon juice and stevia (very tasty and satifying)

        • Lyn July 14, 2011 at 9:08 pm #

          Thanks Regina,
          I started my 500 cal today. Tonight I am having a little difficulty. Seem to have a little burning in my stomach. Drinking water and hope it is better tomorrow. I did plit up my meals today. I ate for 2 days to uncomfortableness. Gained 2 to 3 lbs.
          When you are adding veggies to your meal do you add according to calorie amount. There is not a place that tells an amount allowed of the veggies. Other then a handful of lettuce or handful of strawberries. Some of the info seems vague.
          There was a site I was looking at earlier that the lady stated that the homeopathic drops are worthless. I feel
          there would not be all these great testimonials if that were the case. Glad to hear you are having success. Will keep you up to date on my progress as well.

          • Regina gordon August 3, 2011 at 1:06 pm #

            Hi Lyn, hope all is going well for you. You can have 2 cups of veggies per meal and 1 cup of strawberries. To date I have lost a total of 18lbs, but I’ve lost a lot of inches. I feel really good and my blood pressure has gone donw considerably. I’ve heard people say that the drops are worthless, but they are working for me so I’m going to continue using them until I reach my goal. Stay focused and motivated and let me know how you are doing.

    Has anyone ever tried the shirataki miracle noodle while on phase 2? would they affect the program since they are 0 carb, calorie, fat, etc?
