HCG Nexus Diet Guide
HOW THE SCIENCE WORKS
HCG is a natural, quick-absorbing hormone that triggers the
hypothalamus to release and mobilize abnormal (extra) fat you
are carrying for your body to use as an energy, or “food” source.
Therefore, when you go on a very low calorie diet (VLCD), HCG
helps the body make up the difference in the calories it needs to
function by using your stored fat as food. The result is rapid HCG weight
loss. By using the HCG Nexus drops, the Dr. Simeons protocol
will help you establish a lower body weight “set-point”.
There are three major benefits from the release of this abnormal fat:
• You will lose weight (up to 1 pound daily)
• Your stored fat will help support your daily caloric needs
• You will burn fat from areas that are typically hard to

How you start
The Dr. Simeon’s diet is divided into 3 phases. Please read carefully
as these instructions are vital to your success.
*Women: For best results, begin the program on the first day after your
menstrual cycle ends.
Days 1 and 2, “The Fat Loading Days”
-Indulge! – Eat all the fatty foods you have ever wanted to eat for 2
days. Nothing is off limits; pastries, butter, avacados, hamburgers, fried
food, etc. -Weigh/measure daily and record your weight.
These loading days are very important energy-building days, to
assist you in your transition into the Very Low Calorie Diet. To have
the most success and fewer hunger pains, these days are necessary.
Days 3 – 44 , “Very Low Calorie Intake Days”
-Drops – Continue taking the drops 3 times a day and begin your
very low calorie diet.
DR. SIMEONS VERY LOW CALORIE DIET
There are no substitutions or exceptions to this diet. We follow Dr. Simeons exact diet protocol
for best results.
Breakfast: Tea or coffee in any quantity without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk is
allowed in 24 hours. Saccharin or Stevia may be used.
Lunch: 1) 100-gram (4 oz) piece of lean protein. (This is about the size of a deck of playing
cards). Choices include: beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp (No eel,
tuna, or salmon).
2) 2 cups of vegetables. Choices include: spinach, asparagus, cabbage, green salad, tomato,
celery, fennel, onion, chicory, beet-greens, red radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, or

and lettuce may be served together.)
3) One Grissino breadstick or one slice of Melba toast.
Dinner: Eat from the same choices as lunch.
Snacks: Choose one fruit 2x per day to have whenever you want: apple, half grapefruit, or a
handful (6-9) of strawberries.
Hint: You may choose to eat one portion of fruit as your breakfast, and the other portion as a

EXAMPLE OF A DIET DAY
When you take the drops (whether before or after meals) is not
important. Make sure to take them three times a day: morning,
afternoon, and evening. The exact time is not crucial.
Wake Up & Empty Your Bladder
Drink 32 oz. of tea, coffee, or water before lunch
Take drops before or after breakfast, making sure to wait 15 minutes
before or after eating
4 oz. Grilled chicken with approved seasoning
2 cups cucumbers
1 apple *
Take drops before or after lunch, making sure to wait 15 minutes
before or after eating
4 oz. Grilled halibut with approved seasoning
2 cups asparagus
One handful (6-7) strawberries*
Take drops before or after dinner, making sure to wait 15 minutes
before or after eating
* A fruit may be substituted for breakfast or a snack instead of lunch
HOW TO TAKE THE DROPS
Fill your HCG Nexus dropper to just above
the taper line (as shown in the photo to the
left). Do not fill past this point. This is equal to
Place the drops under your tongue for up to
five minutes. Hold them there as long as you
can. This will increase absorption.
Do not eat or drink 15 minutes before or after
taking the drops.
HOW VLCD WORKS
Without HCG Nexus, a very low calorie diet (VLCD)
would not be a healthy way to lose weight. However, the
HCG Nexus drops allow you to get the additional
calories needed from your body’s extra, “abnormal”
fat. Dr. Simeons, the developer of this diet reminds us:
“Under the effect of HCG the… body is always able to
obtain all the calories it needs from the abnormal fat
deposits, regardless of whether it uses… 1,500-4,000
per day. The participant is living to a far greater extent
on the fat which he is losing than on what he eats.”
Take the drops and follow the very low calorie diet protocol
each day for at least 23 but no longer than 40 days
to help your body transition to a new lower body weight
and lower “set-point.” The day after you stop taking the
drops is the day you have a new body “set-point”, which
is your body’s new comfortable weight. This is when you
begin Phase II.
HOW YOU MOVE TO THE NEXT PHASE
If you reach your weight loss goal before 23 days:
Keep taking the drops and increase your daily caloric
intake to between 800 – 1,000 calories through day 23. This is
not about counting calories. It is about the type of foods and
the amounts you eat. Please follow carefully to be successful.
If you do not reach your weight loss goal before 24 days:
Continue taking the drops and stay on the very low calorie
diet (VLCD) through day 40, or until you reach your goal,
whichever comes first.
If you have more weight to lose, you can begin another
protocol cycle after Phase III. Do not skip Phase II or III,
this is crucial for your weight loss success.
In any case, DO NOT take the drops beyond 40 days, nor
stay on the very low calorie diet beyond 42 days.
HOW YOU SUCCEED WITH PHASE II
Phase II: NEW BODY WEIGHT MAINTENANCE
This is the most critical part of your weight loss program. Over these 3 weeks your
body will lock in its new “set-point.” This is where you can comfortably maintain your
new weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
-Eat the same type of foods as on your VLCD and gradually introduce additional
fruits, vegetables and proteins into your diet without sugar or starches. It is important
to double the amount of protein during this period. (No pastas, breads, pastries,
-Consume 1,500 to 2,000 calories per day to help maintain your new “set-point”
weight making sure to stay within 2 pounds of that weight.
-If you gain more than 2 pounds at any point during this phase, have a steak day: This
is where you drink only water all day, and have only one large, lean steak for dinner
with either a tomato or an apple.
Phase III: Final transition
-Gradually introduce sugars and starches into your diet, but be careful not to form
poor eating habits. It is up to you to keep the weight off!
-If you have obtained your weight and size goals, congratulations!
-If you have not met your goal, start a new weight loss cycle. It is up to you to decide
how many weight loss cycles you go through.
HOW TO MANAGE A PLATEAU
If you reach a plateau (where you don’t lose weight for two
days in a row) do not be discouraged. This is very common.
Your body is simply adjusting to a new, lower calorie diet and
body weight. We suggest doing one or all of the following:
• Drink more water. Water intake should be between 2/3 to
one gallon a day.
• Dr. Simeons suggests an apple day. For one whole day eat
only apples (up to six apples).
“During an apple-day no other food or liquids except
plain water are allowed and of water they may only drink
just enough to quench an uncomfortable thirst if eating
an apple still leaves them thirsty.” – Dr. Simeons
• Take more HCG drops to help break the plateau
and kick your weight loss back into gear.
HOW YOU EXERCISE
Healthy eating and regular exercise are the keys to a healthier you and long-term weight loss. Therefore, we recommend moderate exercise. On the Dr. Simeons protocol it is not necessary to exercise for weight loss to be effective. Strenuous exercising on the diet is not recommended. If at any time you feel weak or light-headed stop exercising immediately. Your daily exercise depends on your personal fitness level, and what you feel comfortable with.
-How much weight can I lose?
Following the HCG Nexus protocol can allow for up to a 1 pound
weight loss per day. However, the unofficial average is around 20 pounds
per month – a little less than a pound a day.
-How can I survive on such low daily calories?
HCG allows your body to release 1,500 to 4,000 calories from your
stored fat. With the additional few calories you eat, you will have 2,000 to
4,000 calories to burn for energy.
-Will I feel hungry all the time?
It is common to experience mild hunger the first few days. However, this
should pass. Some find even very small portions of food to be completely
satisfying while others feel that it takes extra effort to eat what is allowed.
If mild hunger continues, increase the number of drops taken each time.
-Should I eat more if I work out hard or live a very physical lifestyle?
If you are active and hard-working, do not eat more than your very low
calorie diet (VLCD) per day. The HCG Nexus drops allow your body
to let go of the additional needed calories from your abnormal fat storage.
If you feel hungry, increase your dosage by one or two drops each time.
-Will I have to “diet forever”?
The HCG Nexus diet allows you to lose weight quickly, but it is up to
you after the diet to eat healthy and exercise regularly for long-lasting
-Is HCG safe to take with my prescriptions?
We recommend that you consult your prescribing physician before
starting HCG Nexus or any other weight loss plan.
-Does HCG Nexus need to be refrigerated?
HCG Nexus does not need to be refrigerated because it is homeopathic
and mixed with 20% alcohol as part of its liquid medium. The alcohol acts
as a preservative and keeps the HCG Nexus active and effective. HCG
Nexus should not be exposed to sun or extreme heat.
MEASURE YOUR SUCCESS
-Weigh Daily: You will be motivated to stay on the protocol as you
see the weight melt off.
-Food Scale: This will help to keep you on track, without pushing
beyond the boundaries of your VLCD.
-Cloth Tape Measure: You should feel your clothes begin to loosen,
but the tape measure can help you track how fast you lose inches.
-Take Pictures: Take photos before you start the HCG Nexus protocol and at the end of each phase.
-Continue Your Schedule: Exercise is always a healthy option, but
is not required to lose weight with HCG Maxim.
HOW TO MAKE THE DIET EASIER
-Start HCG Nexus weight loss with the intention of sticking with it for the long run.
-Drink plenty of water to help flush out the bad fats.
-Pre-measure and prepare foods, so they are always ready to eat.
(For quick measuring: 4 oz. of lean meat is about the size of a deck of cards.)
-Get a friend to lose weight on HCG Nexus with you. The buddy system works!
-Take potassium, calcium supplements, and a B-complex vitamin.
-Eat a variety of foods from your approved list to prevent boredom.
-Do not try to make substitutions to Dr. Simeons’ diet. The diet gives you all the calories,
protein, and vitamins you need.
-Use mineral powder and oil-free moisturizers, lotions, cosmetics, and sunscreens. Any
oil eaten or on the skin will be the first consumed by the effects of HCG—lessening its
impact on abnormal fat.
-Women: If you experience extra bleeding or cramping during menses, discontinue the
drops but stay on your VLCD. Restart the drops when symptoms subside.

will vary from person to person. Each person’s actual experience will depend on the reasonableness of their weight
loss goal, the time they allow themselves to lose the weight to attain their weight loss goal, their age, state of health, how
closely they follow the weight loss protocol cycle, any subsequent weight loss cycles followed, and any limitations placed
on them by their health care professional due to the above or any other factor.
