While on the HCG diet phase 2, not all exercise is created equal. Today I will discuss the best exercises for phase 2 that maximize fat loss and yield huge dividends in the quest to drop pounds and inches.
What’s too little and, what is too much exercise that can cause stalls, weight gain, hunger, and fatigue.
Join me on my next live call as we cover these topics.
See you there,
I stumbled upon your website from your Youtube channel. I have some questions for you after watching your videos. You viewpoint is a lot different than most people on how and what to do while taking shots.
Q: This is where I am currently:
My sister in law is a nurse who got me a supply of the HCG injections… She’s given me the break down of the standard method of how to do it.. 23 day supply
I am being told that I am not supposed to exercise period. after the injections, I am told to go on a 3-week maintenance phase of 1500-2000 calories. No working out. I have been working out for 8 months prior to this.. It is hard for me to grasp why I cannot exercise?
So this was my plan.
Do the 23 days.. take the injections.. and once I get into the maintenance phase I was going back to lifting for thirty minutes a day. I am being told not to do this.
So I wanted to ask you your opinion.
Here is the kicker. When they sent the injections… they evidently were out of the vials that contained just enough for the 23 day supply so they actually sent me enough for the 40 day supply by mistake..
I really do not want to waste the extra injections… but if it means I have to go another 3 weeks with out lifting then I am not willing to do it. I have read almost everything about the diet online that I can find. I understand the hormone is produced by women and when they are pregnant the hormone will burn women fat into food for the baby if for some reason she is starving herself.
So if thats the case… and I am eating 500 to 600 calories and lets say I do exercise and burn 500 calories.. why would that mess up the injections.. Isn’t the point of the hormone to tell the brain you are starving.. if I am at a break even on calories… eating 500 and burning 500. wouldn’t it just make sense for the hormone to attack straight fat even more?
I am just trying to figure what is the best thing to do?
Should I just do A. do 23 day worth of injections… get into my maintenance phase and just go back to lifting 30 mins a day?
or B. Go ahead and do 40 days worth of injections that I have… after the 23 just keep staying on 500to 600 calorie eating plan keep taking rest of the shots and go back to cardio and lifting?
What my sister in law doesn’t understand is… I do not care about what the weight on scale is.. I care about total body fat lost. if scale stays the same while I’m lifting but my body fat is dropping and I know this by how my clothes fit and measurements.. THE SCALE DOESNT MATTER TO ME.
its all just very confusing… cause they act like if you aren’t losing lbs every 4 days.. its not working.
A: Hello Lane,
Thank you for your email. Just so you know, I have coached thousands of people to succeed with our advanced HCG protocol.
The problem with most doctors or and HCG clinics who are sharing outdated beliefs about HCG diet and exercise is because many of them have never successfully completed the protocol or. they are too afraid to buck the system.
I have personally experimented with this protocol more than anyone on the planet. I love the protocol and believe it could be the cure for obesity in America and worldwide if the government would give it the praise and credit it deserves.
I have written three books, countless, podcast, blog posts, and vlogs, that I know of and have determined emphatically that diet and exercise work even with the HCG diet protocol. In my book we mage important adjustments to the macro nutrients to ensure sustained muscle protection and increased fat burning.
In my book we made important adjustments to the macro nutrients to ensure sustained muscle protection and increased fat burning.
We also have two comprehensively explained phase 3 plans that walk you through the stabilization process. One for athletic people and one for nonathletes.
Discontinuing your exercise regiment will do more harm than good. Your muscles will begin to atrophy, slowing down your metabolism and reducing your fat burning potential.
Since I do not know how much body fat you need to release, I am pretty confident that 23 days is not going to be enough time on protocol unless you only have 10 to 12 pounds to release. I do all 40 days straight. Pick up a copy of my book, read it, and follow it to the letter.

Resume your workout schedule asap and implement the protein portions and healthy fat we prescribe in our Advanced HCG protocol. You’ll look and feel better, have much more energy and be much happier for doing so.
I hope I have provided you will some of the guidance you were looking for.

This post if for the misinformed, who have been misled to believe that exercising on the HCG diet could be a costly mistake. Three reasons why some people believe that Dr. ATW Simeons’ original protocol prohibits exercise, and why they’re dead wrong.
In Dr. Simeons’ original manuscript, “Pounds and Inches”, Simeons clearly recommends running, walking, jogging, and playing golf; these are all good cardio activities that wouldn’t cause weight gain or stalls. However, what has been regurgitated online and in the media for years now is that you one cannot exercise at all while on the HCG protocol.
In this post, I will not only dispel this myth, but also let you know why exercise is not only doable, why it’s highly beneficial. Now granted, the facts are, that you do not have to exercise on the HCG Diet to lose weight. So those of you who break out in hives just at the thought of exercise; feel free to not exercise at all, because you don’t have to.Dr. Simeons doesn’t consider walking exercise.
The minimum requirement of this diet is that you walk one hour a day at least five to six days a week. So, some of you may consider that exercise and some of you that have not gotten off the couch in a long, may find walking to be more of an exercise. But you need to get mobile in order to mobilize your fat stores.
In other words getting up, moving around, getting your blood pumping, and drinking half your body weight in water your water will produce the best overall results.
The only way to lose fat is to get fat cells to exit your body through perspiration or your urinary tract. In order for you to get up and get those cells to let go and move into the urinary tract and moving to your sweat glands, you’ll have to do some form activity. As part of your complete HCG diet fat loss plan, you should schedule at minimum, walking 45 minutes to 60 minute a day and add in 10 to 30 minute HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts.]Fatigue
You’re on a 550-calorie diet — that is considered a low-calorie diet and easily understandable why a regular person with this kind of calorie intake would experience fatigue.
However, most people do not realize the reasons why you’re able to sustain such a low caloric diet..]Hunger:
Obviously, we know that working out burns calories by exerting more energy, which usually can trigger hunger. If you get too hungry, you may be tempted or forced, to eat something that’s outside of the protocol…If you’re using HCG for weight loss, then you’re receiving anywhere between 2000 to 5000 calories a day being released into the blood from your abnormal fat stores.
These calories provide the necessary nutrients your body needs in order to preserve lean muscle tissue and sustain daily activity.
This is why you rarely feel hungry, weak or fatigued.
This brilliant mechanism is forcing your body to use your stored fat as energy by burning those calories at a rapid pace.
If fatigue does set in, or you begin to feel tired, your workout intensity may be too high.
Also, the protocol is not very forgiving when it comes to cheating. For this reason, if you eat the wrong things because you are hungrier than usual, it can cause weight gain or stalls. Many people experience post-workout water weight gain, which is a necessary healing and recovery process needed for the body to build lean muscle tissue. The muscles are surrounded by fluid to give them time to heal, causing a temporary increase in weight on the scale, so don’t be alarmed.]Use only a scale to determine your success because it can be misleading if you plan on exercising while on the protocol. The scale alone can either be used for the encouragement that you need but can also be a discouraging factor that can cause you to terminate the diet too soon.
For this reason, if you already exercise then don’t stop. If you’re someone that doesn’t exercise, then we recommend you start as soon as you decide you’re going to follow our advanced HCG diet plan; not when it shows up on your door. Believe it or not, after one week of doing certain exercises, your body will start to get used to the process of being in movement. As my personal trainer, Brian Nguyen always says, “Movement Melts Fat.”
This way you can continue you to exercise without having any adverse side effect adding exercise to your HCG diet plan. Listen to your body, exercise within your means, follow the protocol, and you will have your best transformation ever in a few short weeks.
