    For most, Phase 2 is the most difficult part of the HCG diet and would usually be the point where some get discouraged and quit without finishing the protocol. And yes, some do get depressed. That’s why, it is essential that we must prepare ahead before we start with our HCG protocol. Deciding to do this protocol, is like deciding to go to war. Once you’ve decided, you then have to make sure you have all the weapons you need once the battle begins. In this case, we’ll go through the important points to help us understand this phase. I will also provide you a checklist of stuffs you need to prepare to ensure our victory. =)

    So, to start off, Phase 2 is also known as the Weight Loss Phase. This could last from three weeks up to seven weeks depending on how long you’ve decided your round to be based on your desired weight loss. Throughout this phase, you will be on a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) of 500 calories per day and eating only the food included in the approved food list. The list is quite short and sometimes you’d be tempted to take a bite or more of foods not included in the list but I am discouraging you from doing that. Even a bit of cheating could take you a couple of days to recover.

    Besides the HCG kit that you have, here’s a checklist of the other things you would need for this phase:

    • Bathroom Scale (You should actually have this even when starting P1; but if you didn’t have it, you definitely have to get one once you start P2.)
    • Kitchen Scale
    • Tape Measure
    • Meal Plan
    • Notebook, digital or physical (essential to monitor daily weigh-ins and record your progress)

    Now, let’s get it on! =)
