This one's pretty straight forward...Don’t cheat on the HCG diet. It will probably set you back a couple of days and may mess with the metabolism reset feature of the HCG diet.
According to Dr. Simeons, you need to have at least 21 consecutive, non-cheating days following the phase 2 meal plan with the HCG product in your system to reset your metabolism. Resetting your metabolism is important on the HCG diet because it makes it easier to maintain the weight loss in phase 3 of the HCG diet.
Cheating on Phase 2, can cause major weight gain that can take up to 3 days to recover from.
hCG Diet Cheating is not the end of the world. Well....let me take a step back. I was asked
this question. I'm sure many of you have asked the same question. I know I have....
Try your best not to.
Once or twice will not completely wreck your diet.
If you find that you are hCG Diet cheating on a regular basis, it may because you are going through a stressful time or maybe its a bad time of year for you. Look at what's going on a determine if you should continue. I have found that if I am not completely focused on losing the weight or if there are too many distractions, hCG Diet cheating is inevitable.
"I cheated really bad. Do I just start over the next day?"
The answer to this question is ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!
If you have cheated on the hCG diet you can still lose weight.
Guess What? You still shouldn't quit!
You have a goal to lose the weight. You know that hCG works to help you accomplish that goal. So what if the hCG diet cheating derailed your last attempt? Pick yourself up and do it again! Realize that the 23 to 40 day sacrifice is indeed short term compared to the long term, life long benefit of a healthier, better feeling, YOU.
Don't give up. Weight loss with hCG is very achievable
Now if you cheat regularly......That's a different story. If you find yourself cheating every other day or even few times a week, you should evaluate what's going on and why you are cheating. If its something you can't eliminate immediately it may not be a bad idea to put your diet on pause.
The fact of the matter is, people do cheat on the HCG Diet!
But if you do end up cheating that regretful one time, you shouldn't let that ruin the rest of the diet for you ... So definitely DO NOT give up.
What should you do?
You should continue with the diet as if nothing has happened.
Most people think that because they have cheated the diet is not going to work for them. However, that is just not true. You still have the ability to lose a lot of weight and reset your Hypothalamus Gland.
But at the same time you don't want to keep cheating either. Doing this will ruin the diet and you will likely gain back the weight you have lost up until this point!
So if you have cheated, don't stop the diet, keep on going and continue doing the best that you can!
