Interruptions on the HCG Diet

Interruptions during the HCG diet are done for a very important reason. However, you have to be careful because you might gain weight. An interruption is done carefully along with the intake of 800 calories per day. This regimen is only permissible after the 20 days of your Phase 2. 

What are the Steps to Start an Interruption?

  • If you do an interruption period, you do need to plan ahead a bit. 
  • You will transition off your HCG injections in the same way you do at the end of a round.
  • Stop the HCG, but continue the 500-calorie diet for 72 hours following the last dose.  At that point, your interruption will begin.
  • You have to avoid sugar and carbs to avoid weight gain. Gradually increase your intake of calories to give your body time to adjust.

What can I Eat During the Interruption?

After the third day, you should add meat, eggs, cheese, and milk to his diet to increase his calories. This is essential to avoid getting hungry and weak so that he is unable to go about his usual occupation. Note that only a minimum calorie level is given.  You do not have to restrict calories on an interruption.

How Do I End the Interruption?

In the case of an interruption for less than two weeks, the patient may immediately resume injections and the 500-calorie diet, but in the case of a longer interruption, he must again eat normally until his third injection has been administered.

If observing the 2-week limit for the interruption, there is no need to repeat the loading phase. You can resume the injections and the low-calorie diet the next day. The build-up of HCG in your system will require 3 days if the interruption lasts longer than 2 weeks.  

When Can I do an Interruption During my HCG Round?

With less than 20 effective injections, some weight is likely to be regained if an interruption occurs before 20 effective injections have been given. After the 20th injection, an unavoidable interruption is merely a loss of time. You may not be able to stabilize later if you have to take an interruption before then, or you may not be able to recover from the weight gain accumulated during the interruption.

What Are the Benefits of a Planned Interruption?

The most obvious benefit is to give you some social grace for traveling or events where it would be difficult to maintain the diet.  Following the guidelines and time limits will only affect the length of time you spend in the protocol during your round.
