A quick guide to the Loading Phase

During the first two days of the HCG Protocol, your goal is to eat as many high-fat foods as possible. This stocks your normal fat cells, which allows your abnormal fat cells to willingly release copious amounts of fat during VLCD.

You may need more than two if for the past six months you have consistently eaten low-fat/low calorie or you have a long history of yo-yo dieting with large weight swings. It’s common to do three load days after doing back-to-back rounds of the protocol. If you fall into either of these categories, please contact our support team for advice.

Start taking HCG the morning of Load Day 1. If you do more than two load days, only take HCG on the last two days. Follow this schedule with the drops for the entire course. If you miss a dose, you can make up for it later or with a larger dose.

Load days aren’t usually as fun as they may sound at first – by the end of Day 1 you may be very tired of eating fat. One less filling trick is to get a quart of heavy cream and mix it with coffee or chocolate (hot, cold, or as a milkshake) and sip it between meals and snacks.

You should aim for a minimum of 250 grams of fat or more on each load day. Remember to focus on fat, not starch or sugar. A loaded baked potato or a piece of chocolate cake is not nearly as effective at packing in the fat grams as an omelet cooked in butter and loaded with cheese and bacon.

Here are the highest fat foods – be sure to include several of these in your load days.
