HCG Phase 2 - VLCD & HCG

Phase 2 - hCG and the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD)

User Rating: / 134

Overview of the Low Calorie Diet

The information on allowed foods below is taken from the manuscript "Pounds & Inches". Read the complete manuscript here.

The hCG protocol, created by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons back in the 50's and 60's, is a multi-stage program designed to melt the abnormal fat from your body, reset your hypothalumus to keep you at a 'normal' weight, and help you learn to eat correctly to maintain that weight FOR LIFE,so that you'll never have to diet again. Followed correctly, it will cure you of the disease of obesity.

It is important to understand that this is NOT A DIET. It is a scientifically designed protocol that utilizes a combination of very specific foods at 500 calories per day and the use of hCG (either injected, taken sublingually or via homeopathic application) to CHANGE THE WAY YOUR BODY PROCESSES FOOD. Because of this, you should not look for food substitutions, nor look for ways to add 'calorie free' foods, as you might upset the nutritional balance that is designed in the protocol. Doing so may impair your weight loss, and/or possibly keep you from resetting. If followed, this protocol WORKS.

This is a very precise process, so cheating can not only affect your weight loss, but your ability to stabilize later, and you won't know until you get there if you messed up your stabilization when you cheat.

Doing hCG Under the Tongue (no shots!)

Sublingual Technique:

SL isn't a terribly difficult technique. You just squirt the dose of hCG in your syringe or dropper into your mouth under your tongue and hold it there while it is absorbed. This takes about 1-2 minutes, and you should not eat or drink anything for 15 minutes before or after dosing.

It's really easy, just squirt the hCG mixture into your mouth under your tongue using the syringe. Get syringes that go to 1ml and have removable needles. You can often get these at drug stores, or even farm supply stores (animal dosing, sterile and safe for humans). If you don't want to do it that way, you can get a medicine dropper at your local pharmacy and squirt the mixture into that through the little hole at the bottom, keeping the glass tube of the dropper horizontal so that it will not run out or deep into the rubber bulb, then squirt it into your mouth with that.

As you salivate while holding the hCG mix under your tongue, don't swallow it, but hold it in your mouth as well. It shouldn't become a quantity to great to hold in your mouth, so don't worry about that. If it does, then you may swallow a bit of it. If it doesn't all stay under your tongue the entire time, no worries! In fact, it turns out that the area between cheek & gum also absorbs sublingually! If there isn't much left under your tongue should you peek, that is probably because much of it was absorbed through the membranes there, which is the mechanism by which SL works.

If you don't allow it to absorb sublingually, but swallow it instead, it is degraded in stomach acid significantly so that you really won't get an optimal amount.


It is possible to save $$$ by reusing supplies when doing sublingual dosing. You really don't need new amber vials for every mix. I would say you will need a new vial every round because the lid will be full of holes and start to let air in after that many times of accessing for your daily doses.  Just clean those syringes & needles out by flushing with boiling water well after each use.


It used to be thought that you needed to up the dosage from 125IU to 166IU in order to account for lessened uptake by doing sublingual, but Dr. Bellucsio has found in his study (http://www.oralhcg.com) that 125IU twice daily works for most people. If you find that you are still really hungry after a week or so on the VLCD, then up your dose to 166IU twice daily. Try to take your doses as close to 12 hours apart each day as you can.

HCG Dosing Calculations

User Rating: / 129

The following table outlines how much mix to add to your hCG to get the correct dosing information. 'Diluent' is the mix you use with your HCG, i.e. bacterostatic water, vodka, sterile water, etc.

To make it even easier, here is a calculator to tell you how much mix to use:



<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.hcgloss.com/mixingcalc.js"></script> <noscript>Sorry your browser does not support Javascript or Javascript is turned off. The calculator will not work without Javascript</noscript><p><table align="center"><form name="hCG_calc"><tr><td colspan="2" align="center"><strong><h3>hCG Mixing Calculator</h3></strong></td></tr><tr><td>Amount of hCG Powder (IU):</td> <td><input value="" onkeydown="ForceNumericInput(this, true, false)" name="hcg_powder"></td></tr><tr><td>Preferred Injection Volume  (ml/cc):</td><td> <input value="" onkeydown="ForceNumericInput(this, true, false)" name ="cc_inject"></td></tr><tr><td>hCG dose per Injection (IU) (usually 125):</td> <td><input value="" onkeydown="ForceNumericInput(this, true, false)" name="hcg_inject"></td></tr><tr><td>Diluent Needed (ml/cc):</td><td> <input name="showMeArea" readonly="true" size="4"></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2" align="center"><input type="button" value="Calculate"OnClick="showMeArea.value=hcg_powder.value * cc_inject.value / hcg_inject.value ;"></td></tr></form></table>
<p><strong>NOTE:</strong> Insulin syringes are standardized for insulin, a 0.3cc holds 30 units, a 0.5cc holds 50 units, and a 1cc holds 100 units. 10 units is equal to 0.1cc. Since your hCG will be concentrated differently than insulin it will therefore not be following the same standard. Make it easy and use 0.3, 0.5 or 1cc as your preferred injection volume and get yourself the syringe of matching max volume. I use .5cc to dose. </p>

<p>You should mix with the diluent the hCG comes with for maximum effectiveness. The manufacturer has formulated their hCG powder to work best with their recommended diluent. This is usually either bacteriostatic water or sodium chloride .09%. This is true for both injections and for sublingual application of hCG.</p>




The powder comes in concentrated form and there is an amount of liquid to mix it with. If the amount they have given you is 1 ml then that will give you 1 ml of 5000 IU. This is far too small to try to divide up into 25 doses.  It is critical to note that every manufacturer creates an hCG mix that works best and maintains potency best when mixed with the liquid it is packaged with. This is true whether you are dosing with injections or sublingual.


For those of you who watched lots of youtube videos promoting mixing with alcohol, B12, colloidal silver, etc. Dr. Bellucsio, a South American doctor who has spent 10 years researching the sublingual application of hCG for weight loss has confirmed that mixing with the diluent recommended by the manufacturer is most effective. You can read his paper regarding this at http://www.oralhcg.com.

Now, they will only send 1ml liquid with your hCG. DON'T PANIC!! You just need to order or get more of that liquid to mix with your hCG. Here are some sources for getting the mixing liquids and kits:

Search 'sterile diluent' on Google to find other sources. You can also contact your local drugstore and see if they have the the diluents as well. I have used both the resources listed here and found them reliable, safe and fast.

IMPORTANT! DO NOT MIX TWO DIFFERENT LIQUIDS WITH THE HCG. The HCG may come with 1 ml of isotonic sodium chloride or bacteriostatic water. You only want to use "one" liquid to dissolve the powder, USE THE SAME TYPE OF LIQUID THAT YOUR HCG COMES WITH!
