How to Maintain Your Beauty Routine While on the HCG Diet


HCG Diet Beauty Routine

The Simmions HCG diet is a groundbreaking medical weight loss program that combines daily injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) with a carefully planned low-calorie diet. This high-protein, low-carbohydrate, and low-fat regimen can help you achieve rapid weight loss results when followed diligently. In this article, we’ll delve into the importance of using HCG-approved beauty products, offer a list of recommended items, and provide essential guidelines to ensure maximum success.

It’s important to understand the role of daily HCG injections in this diet. These injections help curb hunger and preserve muscle mass while following the low-calorie meal plan. However, they are not a magical solution that dissolves fat; adhering to a strict diet is still necessary for optimal results.

Undertaking the HCG diet under medical supervision is strongly advised. Clinics specializing in this program, like ours, provide essential clinical support for patients to succeed. Exercise caution when considering any non-pharmaceutical-grade products marketed for this diet.

Some patients may be tempted to purchase HCG drops online rather than obtaining them through a medical provider and pharmacy. While the motivation is often to save money, such decisions can lead to disappointing outcomes. Remember that the primary purpose of HCG injections is to protect lean muscle mass during a medically supervised calorie deficit. Using non-pharmaceutical grade HCG increases the risk of consuming a counterfeit product, potentially causing significant muscle loss while on a diet.

It’s crucial to remember that the HCG diet is a strict, no-cheat program. Deviating from the plan can not only hinder your weight loss progress but may even result in weight gain. Adherence to the diet is essential – eating only the specified foods in the designated portions and following the eating schedule every 2-3 hours. Straying from the approved food list is highly discouraged.

On average, adhering to the HCG diet can lead to a daily fat loss of 0.5-1 lb. However, completing the Post HCG program is equally important to maintain your weight loss achievements. Failing to do so can result in rapid weight regain, as the 500-calorie diet significantly lowers your metabolism. A focus on metabolic recovery is vital to prevent undesirable weight gain in the long run.


Importance of HCG-Approved Beauty Products:

While following the HCG diet plan, it’s crucial to be mindful of the products you use on your skin and hair, as some ingredients can interfere with the effectiveness of the HCG hormone. Many common beauty products contain oils, fats, and other ingredients that can hinder weight loss. To maximize results, it’s recommended to use specific HCG-approved beauty products.

For example, lotions that contain oils or fats can be absorbed through the skin and cause the body to store more fat. In addition, some lotions may contain ingredients that can interfere with the HCG hormone. To avoid these potential issues, use HCG-approved lotions that are compatible with the HCG hormone and support weight loss. These lotions are typically free from oils, fats, and other ingredients that may interfere with the diet.

In addition to lotion, other HCG-approved beauty products include shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Choose products that are free from oils and fats or are specifically designed for use on the HCG diet.

Essential Guidelines for the HCG Diet:

  • Do your HCG injection first thing in the morning, ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.

  • To reduce chemical absorption, purchase organic food
  • Avoid added sugar COMPLETELY, substitute with zero-calorie sweeteners
  • 2 servings of fruit for 2 snacks (only allowed fruits/allowed portions)
  • What you eat for lunch, you MUST eat the same thing for dinner. If you would like to change up your selection, wait until the next day.
  • Weigh out everything on a scale in ounces (Weigh Protein BEFORE it is cooked)
  • Do not “save” calories from one day to the next, if it is not eaten yesterday, you can’t eat it today
  • Don’t drink juice or soda (not even diet)
  • Keep caffeine and artificial sweeteners limited
  • Don’t exceed 2500 mg of salt- preferred use: Morton’s Light Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt
  • Do only VERY light exercise, approx. 30 minutes a day of walking if energy allows
  • Use these “Free” seasonings for flavor: Any fresh or dry herbs, vinegar, lemon juice (one lemon’s juice is allowed a day), mustard, hot sauce, light soy sauce/amino. Anything zero calories and oil-free.
  • Any attempt to follow this diet for more than three days without taking the HCG Injection WILL lead to health trouble (ex: muscle loss)
