It is very important to strictly adhere to the diet. Since our body absorbs oils when applied topically, only oil-free lotions, soaps, make up, and lip balms may be used. Oils that are applied topically will be consumed by the body for energy rather than utilizing abnormal fat stores. Therefore, no weight- loss or body sculpting will be appreciated. The Gorge: Days 1 and 2 The primarygoal of the first two days of the program is to: 1. Stock your healthy fat reserves 2. Provide energy for the first few days of the very low-calorie diet until the HCG injections start to work 3. Maximize your weight-loss potential The best foods to consume during the gorge, phase 1, are high fat and low calorie foods such as dairy products, nuts, oils and avocados.

Youmay consume your second helping of a Grissini bread stick or Melba toast with either lunch or dinner if you had one at breakfast for a total of two servings per day.
Day 23 is your last day of injections. It is critical however that you continue to follow the 500 calorie per day diet until Day 26, an additional three days. Remember, it takes approximately three days for the HCG hormone to leave the body and so you may as well continue to lose weight during this process.manhattanspine.com
