For the first time I feel like I'll be able to keep the weight off because this is such a sustainable way to eat. NOW I understand more about nutrition, thanks to this book and the ensuing search into the subject which it inspired. I can see where and why other programs have failed me over the long haul.
After a few weeks on this protocol, cravings for sweets and bread-type carbs are gone.
The biggest change for me between this upgraded v. the original protocol is the ADDITION OF FATS - in the form of MCT or coconut oil. SUCH AN AMAZING DIFFERENCE in how you feel, your ability to think and general satisfaction with your meals! I took a 3 week break 12/10 - 1/1, which included Christmas and New Years. While following the 3-week transition protocol between the conclusion of the HCG phase and long-term maintenance, I still lost weight OVER THE HOLIDAYS, and started right where I left off earlier. It wasn't difficult at all, because the new protocol - if you will learn it and work it - is just a nice way to feed yourself and your family. It's brought the joy back to getting healthy again.
In just a few weeks, I've dropped a number of sizes and am back in my favorite Levis with NO spandex. Woohoo. Still have about 6 pounds to go, which will put me back in my skinniest jeans - which is really only a nice benefit to the effort. This time it's more about our health than the skinny jeans. (Don't misunderstand me... those skinny jeans are still an awesome payoff!)
There is a Facebook group to support people following the protocol. Do not go there to try to learn the protocol without reading the book. Wonderful support can be found on the site from the admins and members, but also a lot of misinformation and confusion are sown within the group by people who haven't read the book and are passing along info from other ill-informed individuals.
LEARN THIS WONDERFUL PROTOCOL FROM THE MAN WHO DEVELOPED IT AND WROTE THIS BOOK. Then you'll be in a great place to 1) lose significant weight, 2) learn a sustainable lifestyle, 3) evaluate and modify recipes to be HCG 2.0 compliant, 4) discern the difference between good and flaky info/recipes on Facebook, and 5) offer VALUABLE help to other members of the group BECAUSE YOU READ THE BOOK. Just sayin'. Reading the book will save you from wasting your time and money because of goofy advice sincerely and liberally dispensed in the public forum.
This is such valuable information I bought it in print first, then in Kindle. I love the ability to search out what I'm looking for with the Kindle, but I like to highlight, annotate, and dog-ear the pages I return to again and again, especially the food charts and maintenance info.
I believe this is the answer for which we've been looking for a long time. It's not the end of our nutritional education, but it's been the first to actually capture my interest to learn more because the results have been so dramatic. Again, not just weight loss, but how we feel while we eat this way.
Good luck in your journey to good health. This is a great investment to that end.
-I was looking for a HCG cookbook because I was having a trouble maintaining my weight during my Phase 3 Maintenance weeks. So I bought HCG 2.0.
As I read it, I found this book to be NOT a cookbook but *** the BEST modern-HCG diet guidebook ever on the market (books/online)***. It contains lots of information about the theories behind, rules of, and tools for HCG diet, which is SO important to succeed in a most effective, healthy, and fastest way.
*** Please read my story below ***
Last month, I did my very first HCG diet with "semi-traditional" protocol with some commercial HCG diet drop (not InsideOut Wellness by Dr. Zach LaBoude, the author). Before the diet, I was a lean regular exerciser and needed to shed only 8 lbs that had never responded to dieting and exercise. The HCG company i chose told me it would take less than 2 weeks to lose that small weight of fat. BUT the reality is, it took 3+ weeks, and I experienced lots of stalls. I lost from my face and felt always hungry and exhausted. I was miserable and quit immediately after I reached my goal of 10-lb loss (23rd day).
During the Maintenance Phase 3 (3 weeks), my weight went up & down despite teeth-clenching efforts with strict diet. I had to do many "steak days," "5-apple days" (an alternative to steak day for vegetarians and fruit lovers). By the end of 3-week maintenance, I had already 3 lbs up from my 10-lb weight loss - 30% gain.
Then I found this HCG 2.0 book on Amazon and purchased it - I meant to learn cooking, but ended up studying REAL important facts, keys to success, valuable information and more. I read through it (I am a scientist, too) with highlighters and was SO shocked. I had done so many mistakes - by faithfully following the HCG diet company's protocol. The typical HCG diet plans online have TOO MANY NO-NO-NOs. Even Dr. Simeon's original protocol would no longer work for modern life style and diet.
After reading HCG 2.0, I decided to redo the diet because I had already gained 3 out of 10 lb I had lost from the Phase 2 and seemed to be continuously gaining. So I redid the whole process -including the binge day (Day 1 & 2). After the 2 days of fat loading, I gained freaking 7lbs!!!!!! My body had lost wrong fats and been starving - so the loading gave my body a perfect opportunity to regain all it had lost. I almost cried.
But I followed this HCG 2.0 protocol from the day 3 of Phase 2, and amazingly, lost 5 lbs in just 3 days!!!! I have lost total 9 lbs in only 6 days. No stall at all - and no steak day needed. I was never hungry and did not lose muscles or from face.
Currently I am on Phase 3: following HCG 2.0 protocol, I have gained ZERO gram!!!! SUPURB.
*** Post Phase 2 of 2nd HCG diet ***
What I learn is that, this HCG 2.0 diet is ideal especially for those who are leaner, exercise regularly, and have less fat (are not obese) but DO have some extra fat to lose - which cannot be lost by increasing more exercise. Dr. Simeon's traditional and many other protocols may work better for those who have abundant fat to lose (say, +50 lbs) but not for the athletic/active people like myself - the weight loss is VERY SLOW and difficult. The same thing for those who are on the +2 rounds: lesser the fat to lose (w/ lower BMR), slower to lose.
- Dr. LaBoube has a secret to tell you: the single most important KEY to success. Really. I even enjoyed diet soda (as HCG 2.0 allowed in moderation) and it helped reduce my stress level. I did not subtract calories from veggie, but cut one essential thing. This made a HUGE difference.
Also the book has a number of contradictory statements and 'scientific' references.
This book is a MUST read for any HCG dieter - don't waste another day dieting without this knowledge!!! HCG 2.0 not only WORKS, but has given me my life and happiness back - my family is especially grateful! :D I am now following the 2.0 protocol to the end and have never felt more energetic, healthier or THINNER!!!
