LET’S GET STARTED!!

Phase 1: Taking the MAGIC HCG Drops and Preparation (Days 1 – 2)

On day 1, start taking the MAGIC HCG drops.

1.How to take the drops:
Place 10-15 drops under your tongue and hold them there for 2 minutes. Swallow the remaining liquid.

**Note: Be sure to take 10-15 drops, 3 times per day, for a total of 30-45 drops. Once in the morning, 30 minutes before lunch, and again 30 minutes before dinner.

2.During the first two days of taking the MAGIC HCG drops, you will need to eat as much food as you possibly can. You will want to be storing fat to be used as energy during the low calorie portion of the diet.

**DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.

**Eat whatever you like. There are no restrictions these first two days**

Phase 2: Starting the Low Calorie Diet Along With the MAGIC HCG Drops (3 or 6 weeks)

1.On the 3rd day, you will begin stage 2, a low calorie diet, consisting of 500 calories per day. Depending on how much weight you want to lose, continue phase 2 of the MAGIC HCG diet from 3 to 6 weeks. You should see a weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds per day.

2.Keep the same routine. Every morning, after using the toilet, weigh yourself without clothes and keep a daily record of your weight.

Phase 3: Stabilization (3 weeks)

1.Starting in Phase 3, you can begin to add more food back into your diet.

2.Make sure you avoid anything containing sugar or starch during this 3 week stabilization period.

3.You can have meat, fats and oils, nuts and vegetables.

4.Do not eat fruits as they contain sugar.

5.Although you may choose to consume some dairy such as cheese and low fat sour cream, it is best to avoid dairy which has a high sugar (lactose) content such as milk and yogurt.

6.It is best to add foods back into your diet one at a time so you may see how your body reacts to each item.

7.Continue to weigh yourself every day, you are not to lose more than 2 pounds or gain more than 2 pounds. If you lose weight, you need to eat more. If you gain weight, you need to do a “steak day” the same day as the weight gain. This is NOT a time to reduce calories, you are training your body to be able to eat more calories and maintain your body weight.

**Steak Day:

Anytime during the stabilization or maintenance period that you gain 2 pounds, the very same day you weigh over, do not eat any food until the evening meal – and then eat a large steak (up to 14oz) cooked in oil or butter and 1 apple or a tomato. The weight should be gone by morning.
