Using HCG diet drops for weight loss is a more convenient and cheaper way of getting HCG compared to the standard injections. A lot of people are put off by the idea of injecting themselves once a day. With drops, the liquid is placed under the tongue- hassle-free and pain-free.
To maximize the benefits, there are a few guidelines to follow.
General guidelines in taking HCG diet drops
The drops are generally taken about 3 to 6 times each day. Prescriptions and doctor’s appointments are no longer necessary. The drops are mixed in an alcohol based solution, making it easier to administer. The alcohol content is very low, so no need to worry about negative alcohol effects.
• Take the drops at the same time each day. This helps the body maintain a good and optimum HCG level.
• Do not drink or eat anything 15 to 20 minutes before and after taking HCG.
• Administer sublingually (under the tongue), where there are soft tissues and abundant blood vessels. Absorption is better and more efficient in this area.
• Squeeze the HCG one drop at a time. To help in counting, stand in front of a mirror while administering.
• Rest the tongue naturally after administering, while holding the liquid under it.
Taking HCG diet drops during Phase 1 of the diet
The recommended dosage slightly differs, depending on the phase the dieter is in. For Phase 1, whether on a 500-, 800- or 1200-calorie per day, the recommended dosage is 10 drops. Place under the tongue and keep it there for 60 seconds. Then, swallow any of the remaining liquid. This will ensure more HCG gets absorbed directly into the blood stream.
We recommend getting a 2-ounce bottle of HCG diet drops if going on a 43-day diet. Those following a 64-day diet (i.e. those wanting to lose more than 64 pounds) should get 2 2-ounce bottles. These will be just enough to last throughout the chosen program.
From Day 1 to Day 21 of the 43-day diet, administer 3 times each day, 10 drops each time. For those under the 64-day diet, take 10 drops, 3 times each day from Day 1 to Day 42.
Taking HCG diet drops during the Loading Days
On loading days, follow these guidelines when taking the drops:
• Take 3 times a day, in the morning, afternoon and in the evening.
• Take 6 drops per administration.
• Hold the liquid for 5 minutes for maximum absorption.
During the loading days, after taking the drops, eat more foods that contain lots of fats. Eat as much as possible. This is called “forced feeding”. This step will store more fat in the body. Not to worry about weight gain at this point. It’s only 2 days and the succeeding days will surely burn all these newly stored fats, and much more. The body will use this stored fat as energy once within the low-calorie stage of the diet protocol. Skipping this step will cause some unwanted low energy levels. The thing about the loading phase is that the more one eats, the higher the fat burning rates will turn out to be in the later phases.
Taking HCG diet drops during Phase 2
These guidelines apply on Phase 2, regardless of what diet protocol is being followed.
• Take 4 drops 3 times each day, in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening.
• Hold under the tongue for a few minutes for maximum absorption.
• Swallow remaining HCG afterwards.
• 3 days before the end of the diet protocol, stop taking HCG drops but continue with the 500-calorie per day guideline.
There is no need to worry about any side effects when swallowing the remaining HCG liquid. The natural acids in the stomach will destroy the swallowed HCG, preventing it from getting absorbed or from affecting any organ. Our HCG diet drops come in a very attractive taste, so it will be much easier to keep under the tongue and to swallow. If you find it difficult to swallow the liquid, just spit it out. We also recommend trying to keep the liquid for a longer time underneath the tongue. This way, more HCG can be absorbed by the blood for maximum results.
Our drops work more effectively when these are used in conjunction with following a low-calorie diet. The HCG diet drops will help the body burn its fat stores faster. It tells the body to derive its energy needs from fat burning instead of from the muscles, especially during the periods of not eating. This is when maximum weight loss occurs- fat burning and burning extra calories.
In this diet, in order to lose about 1 pound off the body weight, the body has to burn 3,500 calories. So that means that if the daily calorie intake is 3,500 calories less, the body loses a pound. The 3,500 calories, however, must be spread over several days. Otherwise, a person will be starving himself each day just to lose weight. To make calculations much easier, take the weekly total calorie intake and deduct 3,500 from it. Then divide the remaining value by 7 to get the daily calorie intake for maximum weight loss. For example, daily recommended intake based on age, height and activity is 1,500 calories. In a week, that will be 10,500 calories. Deduct 3,500 calories (equivalent to 7,000) and divide by 7. This will give a daily calorie intake of at most 1,000. Eating less than this will give more pounds lost.
