The second round of the HCG diet is effective and safe to do. You can do this if you did not reach your weight loss goal or if you want to lose more weight. The second round of the HCG diet is also allowed when you gain too much weight during the interruption period. The HCG diet is all-natural and effective for weight loss even in the second round.
Round 2 of the HCG diet and the VLCD
The VLCD during the second round of the HCG diet is still the same. You still have to make sure that you are eating 500 calories per day. The HCG can still work fast and effective in burning your body fats. Go through a medical assessment before proceeding to the VLCD to see if you are still allowed to lose more weight. You also have to make sure that you took the 6 months resting period before restarting.
What will you do during the 6 months break?
The minimum of 6 months break is a preparation period to restart on your diet successfully. During the 6 months resting period, you have to continue to eat healthy foods. You still have to eliminate artificial sweeteners, starches, oils, and sugar gradually. Consume more on fruits, vegetables, and lean protein before starting the VLCD again.
Are you required to go through the loading phase?
The loading phase is required if you are practicing unhealthy habits during the resting period. You have to do this if you are gaining back your weight during the six months. See to it that your fat stores are filled before doing the VLCD.
