If you are concerned about whether or not the HCG diet works the second time you really shouldn't be. The diet definitely works the second time around and you can lose just as much weight as you did the first time if not more. The second time around will also usually be much easier because you will be familiar with the diet protocol and the requirements. You'll very likely be able to stick to the protocol much better than you did the first time around. Your body will also be accustomed to the hormone. You will need to wait at least six weeks before your second round of the diet. You will also need to wait a longer period of time between the second and third round, and so on, but as long as you wait for the appropriate amount of time starting the diet the second time is perfectly fine.
You can build up a resistance to HCG if you don't wait long enough
If you don't wait for the recommended amount of time between rounds of the diet, you can definitely build up a resistance to the hormone. The recommendations for waiting periods are based on the original Simeons protocol and his findings when he administered the diet to hundreds of patients. He found that if a second round of the diet was administered too quickly, that patients were not losing weight as quickly. As a result, you need to be careful to wait the recommended length of time. As mentioned previously, before the first and second round you will need to wait six weeks, but between the second and third round you will need to wait eight weeks, and between the third and fourth round you will need to wait ten weeks.
Try another round of the diet if you didn't lose enough weight
A second round of the diet not only works, it may be necessary if you didn't lose enough weight the first time around. There is a small learning curve with the diet, and it can take at least one round of the diet to get over that learning curve. A second round of the diet can help you lose an additional 15 to 40 pounds depending on how long you try the diet for. You will also often find that you are much better at sticking with the diet and you will be familiar with the injection and food requirements. In general, a second round is not just a good idea, it can help you get back to a normal weight and you can continue with multiple rounds of the diet if needed.
Don't wait too long
You should wait the minimum amount of time before starting another round of the diet, but don't wait too long. If you wait too long you risk putting on some of the weight that you lost during the first round of the diet. You want to stabilize your weight during the period between rounds, and that means that you will probably have to continue to stick to some of the phase 2 or phase 3 diet requirements such as avoiding starches and sugars, and other requirements. Don't rush into the diet but don't wait several months either; ideally you want to start between six to eight weeks after your previous round of the diet to avoid gaining too much weight while also avoiding the problem of HCG immunity. Ask your doctor for advice on a waiting period if you have already completed multiple rounds of the diet.
You may need multiple rounds to reset your metabolism
One effect that the HCG hormone has is its ability to "reset" your hypothalamus and your fat metabolism. You may need more than one round of the HCG diet in order to reset your hypothalamus. One round can certainly go a long way in doing this, but several rounds of the diet can be much more effective and allow the hormone enough time to have a long term positive effect on your hypothalamus and fat metabolism. The hormone is very effective helping your body reset from the damage of a poor diet. You can get a metabolic boost every time that you try a round of the HCG diet, and the boost will usually last longer if you try multiple rounds. Many people respond quickly to the first round, but everyone is different and you may need more than one opportunity for the hormone to have an effect.
The more rounds of the HCG diet you try, the easier it is to maintain a normal weight
You will find that it is easier to maintain a normal weight the more rounds of the diet that you try, and you will also find that your cravings for food will start to change as well. Many people find that just one round of the diet can change their food cravings dramatically. They don't crave the same junk foods or processed foods in most cases after a few rounds of the diet because the hormone and the diet helps wean you off of unhealthy foods and also changes your brain chemistry. By doing multiple rounds of the HCG diet you are effectively detoxing your body, giving it a break from the damage that unhealthy foods can cause, and giving your brain and body the opportunity to reset back to normal.
The HCG diet is safe no matter how many rounds you try
As long as you have the right amount of weight to lose, the HCG diet is perfectly safe. You should never try multiple rounds of the diet without the approval of a medical provider, because you do need a sufficient amount of body fat in order for the diet to be safe. Remember that most of your energy during the very low calorie diet will come from abnormal fat. You don't want to try another round of the diet just to maintain a normal weight. There are ways that you can maintain a healthy weight without the HCG diet, but when you have a specific amount of weight to lose the diet is a perfect option for you. As long as you get medical supervision and try the diet at a licensed clinic like Nu Image Medical, it will be perfectly safe for you.
Does the HCG Diet Work the Second Time? The answer is YES!
