My friend does a different regimen - has a cheat day

My friend has done this a couple different times. She originally lost 70 lbs and has gained back 25 so she is now doing it again. She originally got the product from a dr. in Texas and he had her not taking the shots on the 7th day thus creating a "cheat" day - of sorts. She can't go overboard, but can have a beer or a potato or something not on the plan. This plan has you taking the shots the whole way through. Can I do the "cheat" day regimen instead? Confused

Hi Eskia. Skipping the 7th day of HCG comes directly from Dr. Simeon's original HCG diet protocol. This is only an option if the patient is completing a full 46 day round. Skipping an injection once weekly is not necessarily required, however, it is thought to help keep you from building up a tolerance to the HCG hormone and thus keep it working well for you during the longer round. Different doctors and different practices may approach the HCG diet differently. However, it is important to know that the HCG stays in your system for up to three days after your last injection. This means, that cheating of any kind during your skip day should be avoided as this could lead to weight gain and stalls on the program. The 500 calorie diet must be followed strictly for the full 46 days for best results and no risk of weight gain. Carolyn Cannon, RN Nu Image Medical
