Weight loss is not consistent with the HCG diet – some days you will lose more, some days less. You may not lose at all occasionally and possibly gain now and then. However in 30 days you should lose between 15 to 60 lbs. The weight loss is determined, not only by following the recommended HCG diet plan, but also by how many calories your body requires to function normally. The more calories your body requires to function normally, the more calories your body will take from your excess fat (which is being unlocked by the HCG diet for use) the more weight you will lose. Women burn an average of 1500 to 2500 calories per day and men burn 2500 to 4500 calories a day, roughly 500 calories will be coming from the food you are eating and the rest from your excess/abnormal fat which is why men lose twice as quickly as women do with the HCG diet because they pull more calories from their excess fat.

*Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water every day unless that amount is less than 68 (never drink fewer than 68 ounces in a day)

*Check ingredients in tea- make sure there are no sugars (anything ending in “ose), fruits or roots etc..
