Phase One of the HCG Diet & Its Purpose

Phase one of the HCG diet is the most exciting phase of the HCG diet and unfortunately it lasts only two days. This phase is also known as the loading phase or loading days and it is the most fun and most comfortable phase. During this phase you are allowed to eat whatever you want as much as you want for two days straight. Phase one of the HCG diet allows you to eat as much fatty foods as you want. The loading is required so that you can replenish your normal fat deposits that HCG will work on. These fat deposits are important to be stored in the body because when you start on the HCG dose, your appetite may be suppressed and you will need those fat deposits to give you energy. During the loading days, you will start using the HCG drops. The loading also helps in reducing hunger in the first week of the diet.

The purpose of phase one of the HCG diet is basically to eat as much food as you can regardless of the food type so that you can replenish your fat reserves which you will need in the other phases of the diet. Most overweight people or those trying to reduce weight have low fat reserves due to weight loss attempts in the past. These fat reserves need to be replenished and this is the whole purpose of this phase. Another purpose of this phase is to cleanse and detoxify your body to prepare it for the HCG diet. You can cleanse the whole body or different parts of the body such as the colon to prepare for the diet.

Phase one of the HCG diet can be difficult for those people who don’t have appetite or whose appetites are low. This should not worry you if you are one of those people because there are so many foods in this day and age that have high calorie or fat content. You can eat cheese in your meals because it is very high in fat and very dense. When you are using the HCG diet, it is advisable to eat a lot of fiber in phase one because it cleans and cleanses your stomach and makes digestion easy. It should be noted that even though you can eat any food in phase one of the HCG diet, it is recommended that you focus mostly on fatty foods and not sugary foods.

A typical diet of phase one is very exciting. For breakfast you can eat bacon, sausages, cheese omelet, and ham. For a snack you can eat a doughnut that has whipped cream or some crisps. During lunch and dinner, you can eat a wide variety of foods as long as they have high calorie content. You can eat pork chops, potatoes, butter rolls, vegetables with a lot of butter and red meat among others. You can also take a late afternoon or late night snack comprised of ice cream, chips or a large shake. Remember not to overeat and have a stomach upset or any other problems.
