HCG Diet Blog

There is a bit of a misconception out there about exercising on the HCG Diet, and today our goal is to try and straighten that out. On the standard low calorie protocol it is recommended to limit exercise to walking or yoga for no more than 30 minutes per day.


Check out this delicious meal for phase 2.  It is perfect for getting the nutrition you need during Phase 2 of the HCG Diet, while remaining under 500 calories per day. It is delicious, heaps of flavor, and of course healthy. You can’t ask for more than that.


So often we get caught up in the latest rage, and nutrition is no different. We're told that if we would just all but eliminate a single macronutrient such as carbohydrates or fat, then we fix the problem. Well, as simple as that sounds... it's actually MUCH simpler than that..


Can a lack of sleep effect your weight loss results? A question we get asked many times here at the The HCG Diet.

On many occasions, we have discussed with our clients the importance of getting enough sleep each night. One client recently was getting frustrated that her weight loss was not as rapid as many of our other clients. She was only losing about 50% of what she should on a weekly basis. She was also only getting around 4-5 hours sleep per night. Once we identified this, she was able to make the changes so she could get 7-8 hours sleep per night and her weight loss picked up within a couple days and she began losing 300-400 grams per day.

But why is this?


Here is an easy, super low calorie, super delicious cheese cake. It easy to make and tastes unbelievable!

A classic New Zealand dessert that is perfect for Phase 3 of the HCG Diet.


With Summer quick approaching, here at the HCG Diet NZ we get inundated with calls and emails asking if diet drinks are allowed on the diet. Short answer no. Even though it is not actually sugar it is still not allowed. No artificial sweeteners are allowed unless it is Stevia. Stevia has become increasingly popular over the last couple years and can now be bought at pretty much any Pak n Save or New World.
Just because we can't have a Coke or Spite doesn't mean we have to miss out! Try this HCG Diet approved fizzy drink the next time its hot and your thirst needs a quenching.
