Welcome to our HCG blog. You will find recipes, tips, suggestions, etc. on this site. We have been on the HCG diet and wish to share our experience and successes with you. I hope we can inspire and motivate someone through this blogging. Good luck to all!
What IS HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin)? Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a natural occurring hormone found in the placenta shortly after conception in the first trimester of pregnancy. It is a protein hormone known as a peptide. Found in the blood stream, HCG helps reset hypothalamus and trigger signals for the human body to begin breaking down reserve body fats as a primary fuel source. Dr. Simeons findings showed that these signals occur when the body experiences a low calorie diet. HCG is also known to send out signals to conserve and maintain lean body mass, your muscles. HCG tricks your body into thinking it is consuming its needed daily allotment of calories. Replacing ingested calories with stored fat calories.

Drinks

Drinking water is the most important thing on this protocol, since it helps to flush out the fat. But sometimes it's nice to drink a little something with flavor. These are the things I like.

Celestial Seasonings Sampler (Black Cherry, Blueberry, Wild Berry etc.) tea.
This taste great with 1-2 packets of Stevia. It reminds me of hot Jello I used to drink as
a kid. You can also chill it and drink it cold. Kind of like Kool-aid.



Another drink I enjoy is Orange Julius 
Peel a whole orange and stick it in the blender. Add about a half glass of ice, or however much you want. If it's too thick, add water. Put in a spoonful or a 1-2 packets of Stevia and 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1 Tbsp milk(optional).Blend and enjoy! This counts as one of your fruits.  Try adding a sprinkle of cinnamon for something different!

Strawberry Lemonade
