HCG Phase 1 – Loading

Last Updated on by Helen Currie


The HCG loading days generally make up the first two days of the HCG diet.
Some people call them the “loading” “binge” or “gorge” days. I always tell my clients it is “Party Time” During these two days, you begin taking daily doses of either the HCG Injections or the HCG Drops while eating to capacity the most fattening food you can. It’s a very important part of the HCG diet plan.

Most people think it’s pretty strange to attempt to lose weight by first overeating for several days, although few really complain. After all, this is the only time you will ever be told that pigging out is a legitimate part of your diet!

Overeating is not only allowed, it’s required! The first day of the HCG loading phase is often unbelievable, but by the second day, most people start to feel sick of all the eating and just want to get on with the HCG diet and start losing weight.

  • Yet the HCG loading phase is an absolutely essential part of the HCG diet. There are three important reasons:
  • Your reserve fat needs to be restocked
  • HCG injections or drops take several days to start working
  • Loading like this will maximize your weight loss potential
  • Your Reserve Fat Needs to Be Restocked

The HCG loading days help restock low-fat reserves, a very important step that needs to occur before the HCG will have the best effect. Dr. Simeons explained that many people trying the HCG diet have low levels of reserve fat despite having too much abnormal fat.

Fat reserves are normal and necessary fat stores that are normally used to fill your energy needs when you’re low on calories. They are very different from the abnormal, fixed fat deposits you’re trying to get rid of.

Your good fat reserves are an important part of your body, but if you’ve done any dieting before, they have probably been used up already.

Why Is It Important To Load?

Seems strange doesn’t it ….but many overweight and obese people have chronically low fat reserves due to years of repeated or constant yo-yo dieting.

If your good fat reserves are already low, you will have a very difficult time during the low-calorie diet phase of the HCG diet. Even if you think your fat reserves are OK, it’s best to follow the HCG loading phase just to make sure. Why take any chances after all you want to get the best weight loss results possible.

Many of my clients ask when is the best time to take the HCG Injections. It is always important to pick a stable time at which to take your HCG.

This would be a time when you can be consistent according to your lifestyle. It eventually becomes a habit. When taking the HCG drops this is different as these are taken 3 times a day before meals.
