Attention: Thanks to the increasing hurdles imposed by our beloved government and other unforeseeable circumstances, it is my sad duty to inform my dear clients that this web site  has had to reduce size by removing many of its pages.  The Shoppe is now  unavailable for purchases.  

I have tried to continue what I considered a ministry as well as a business for as long as possible, but it has become no longer financially feasible as I have been operating 'in the red' for over a year now.  Thanks and much love to all those who supported this effort.  I pray the HCG Protocol will continue to help people who need this natural means of weight reduction so very much.

  Phase 1

Preparatory Phase

Phase 1 is a preparatory stage for the protocol.  It is entirely a creation of Kevin Trudeau's.  He has some excellent suggestions in his 'The Weight Loss Cure' book for cleansing, exercise, foods, supplements, and other techniques to improve overall health and prepare the body for weight release.

This phase is only recommended by him, and, as he clearly states, it is not a requirement for the Protocol to be successful.  I recognize that his suggestions are likely to help to optimize your results, however.  Most people do not do the majority of the Phase 1 suggestions.  I did not, and I have had very good results. 

I will say that I have had some clients who had some problems with the intensity of the inherent cleansing that occurs when going into Phase 2 that was undoubtedly a result of their need to detox.  Things would have gone much better for them if they had done so before beginning Phase 2.  So, if you know that you have some issues, such as candida, overburdened liver, tendency to kidney infections and such, it would benefit you greatly to take a bit of time before beginning the VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) portion of this regimen and perform some simple detox cleanses.

Try not to drop any weight during this Phase &/or while waiting for your hCG shipment to arrive because it can impact your hunger levels in P2.  The reason we load in P2 is to get the body to start drawing on the brown/abnormal fat stores, and if it has recently been drawing on the other fat stores that is more difficult to accomplish.  So right now, just try to hold steady and eat healthy. 

I did do a few of the things Trudeau outlines myself, although many I was already incorporating into my lifestyle.  I recommend that you add items like these slowly, just one item one week at a time over several weeks would be ideal, as the changes will become permanent more readily that way.  Here are the Phase 1 items I used and recommend:

This is a nice cleanse to do to prepare for Phase 2 while you wait for your hCG to arrive!

Kit Includes: 1 Bottle of Oxy Powder®, 1 bottle of Livatrex™ and 1 bottle of Latero-Flora™.

Cleanses: One 7-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse and One Liver & Gallbladder Cleanse. Takes 12 days to complete both cleanses.

Shalom's Opinion: Easy to Perform, Minimum Dietary Changes, Cost Effective.

 

 

"Should I get any Blood Tests before I start?"

That is a really great idea!  You see, it will give you an opportunity to compare your current health with what you achieve after you have completed the Protocol.  Many folks are astonished at the improvements in numerous areas!  I personally had thyroid testing, blood sugar, Vitamin D3, adrenals, and more.  And it is super easy and inexpensive to set it up yourself without even having to pay your doctor for a consultation!  Check out the discount that is going at these labs in the banner below!

I have found that it is also beneficial to overall health as well as reducing weight to only eat during daylight f hours.  This concept has been explained thoroughly in Paul Nison's

'The Daylight Diet',

which I highly recommend.  In this video, he discusses the concept, as well as the Genesis 1:29 way of eating: 

Phase 2

Reduction Phase

This is the Reduction Phase of the Protocol.  It consists of:

  • Loading (2 days)  click link for details and tips

  • VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet)

The VLCD only allows 500 calories and only of certain foods: 

For Simeons' Original Protocol MENU<----CLICK

 Calorie Tracking:  It is important to keep track of your calories carefully, therefore I recommend that you use FitDay to calculate your daily consumption.  Best Calorie Counter I have found, with lots of other really useful features to help keep you on track and encourage you!

The best way I have found to do the VLCD is to

PLAN AHEAD! 

This is an important practice for anyone who has bondage to food issues in all the phases.  At a minimum, one will do well to plan the day before what your menus will include.  Best would be to plan your week in advance. 

Here is the way I recommend that you calculate your calories for each day's menu:

bullet

It is helpful to start by inputting your protein. 

bullet

Now you can add in your 2 small fruits for the day, one for each meal. 

bullet

Next, you will want to add in the allowed vegetables.  I find it nutritionally as well as psychologically fulfilling to include 1/2 lb of green, leafy vegetables daily.  The easiest way to do this is in a SheepRAW Smoothie

bullet

Now, you can figure out how many calories are left over for your second veggie.  Go ahead and take it up to at least 475 calories.  Don't get overzealous and think that choosing a lot less calories is going to make this work better!  Been there, done that, doesn't work! 

bullet

Also, please note that if you are using spices, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, etc. for recipes, these items DO contain calories and must be added in as well!

VLCD days must last for a minimum of 23 days, where the last 2 days are without hCG.  This means that Phase 2 consists of a total minimum of 25 days (including the 2 Load Days). 

According to Simeons, the 23rd day is your last dose day.  If you are doing sublingual, you will do your doses as usual that day, AM & PM, then begin the 2 days VLCD without dosing the next day.  With Injection you really are still only doing 2 days without dosing, but it is 72 hours from your last dose by injection that morning of the 23rd day.  Start Phase 3 the morning of the 26th day.
Now, it is not necessary to stop the dosing on the 23rd day.  Though Simeons only provided for a short & long reduction phase, it is entirely reasonable to do any number of days in between, e.g., 27 days (which is approximately what results when one uses a 10000 IU vial, and what I recommend).  The last dose day would still be followed by 2 days of VLCD without the hCG.

If you are using SL dosing, it is possible to continue to goal, for some people, without reaching an immunity to hCG, which is readily discernable by a sudden onset of hunger.  I don't recommend this, however, for the following reasons:

  • Psychologically it is stressful to do a course much longer, and one begins to experience feelings of deprivation in spite of lack of hunger due simply to having to restrict the diet to such an extent, which can weaken resolve to go forward;

  • One would have to purchase a 10000 IU and a 5000 IU to do 45 days for sublingual, which gets a bit pricey and impractical for many folks and involves mixing twice during the round.

  • The weight release typically slows toward the end of a round so that you will have better results doing shorter rounds frequently and getting the higher release rates at the beginning of the rounds more often.

You will find an example of how the timing of phases can work (although if I had it to do over, I would insert Phase 4 as described further down this page, and I would also not go for Phase 2 lasting more than 40 days of dosing) by going to my Personal Statistics charts of my own experience using hCG here:

Personal Progress Statistics

The last day of dosing with hCG on the VLCD, one must make particular note of the morning weight as that becomes the Last Dose Weight (LDW).

A peculiarity about Phase 2 includes the admonition by Dr. Simeons to avoid any products containing oils, including cosmetics & other personal care products such as soap & shampoo that typically contain oils.  You may find alternative options here. Note that this site uses statistics for wearing 1" heels and 3 lbs of clothes, so take those amounts off the height and weight to be accurate. 

Phase 2 Recipes These are my faves that really helped me to not feel deprived at all on Phase 2!

One will find that the greatest weight reduction rate occurs the first week of Phase 2.  It will then drop off to as little as .4 lbs/day for ladies.  One may also find that the releases will begin to 'stairstep' such that one day there is a release, while there is none the next day or two, but then it drops again the next day or two.  There will even be the likelihood of plateaus, or 'stalls' that must be endured.  Folks get so spoiled from the large releases in the first week that this can be very frustrating.  It will pass, and the release rate will usually end up averaging from 2 to .7 lbs per day overall for the a 21 to 43 day round. 

However, for those who become terribly discouraged and need to see the numbers drop more regularly, an Apple Day is in order.  This is a method used in the Phase 2 Reduction Phase to help break a stall.  It consists of eating up to six apples of any variety and nothing more besides just enough pure water to satisfy an uncomfortable thirst throughout the day.  According to Dr. Simeons, it is primarily psychological as the weight will continue to reduce without an Apple Day in good time, and the weight release after an Apple Day is primarily due to water loss.  It may also help to drink Dandelion Tea, which acts as a diuretic, instead.  I really don't recommend an Apple Day because it is primarily psychological and interferes with the routine that gets established of eating according to the Protocol.

A good site to

check out the ideal weight for your height & frame is here.  If you find that you are having problems with the Protocol and are near your ideal weight, you may have reached the point where the hCG is no longer working properly as Simeons observed that when all abnormal fat supplies are depleted there is no longer the addition to your 500 daily calories to keep hunger and weakness at bay and one becomes ravenously hungry.  At this point it is best to either increase calories to 800-1000 daily or move into Phase 3.

Here is another way to determine if you have reached a weight that may be considered by your body to be 'ideal':

If you have a situation arise that will interrupt your Phase 2 unexpectedly, please see Dr. Simeons' explanation of how to proceed here:

Unforeseen Interruptions of Treatment

Phase 3

Intermittent Maintenance Phase

Phase 3 is a Maintenance Phase of sorts.  It is necessary to remain on this phase for a minimum of 21 days

One must now ensure that the morning weight (preferably taken at the same time daily after urination but before bowel movements) stays within 2 lbs above or below the Last Dose Weight (LDW). 

One is allowed to eat virtually whatever one desires with the exception of limiting heavy starches (e.g., beans, potatoes, rice, bread) and sugars (high glycemic, e.g., watermelon, refined sugars; click here for more info and Tables of Allowed and Not Allowed) as long as the weight remains within these parameters.  However, keep in mind that if one goes back to eating the same highly processed foods, including fast foods, that one ate before the Protocol, the hypothalamus will not retain it's re-setting to normal, and will again be skewed in function by MSG and other chemicals that have adverse effects.  Try to get as much fresh, organic veggies & fruits as possible into your diet.  It should be easier than ever at this juncture.  After Phase 2, one generally has a much greater appreciation for these healing, delicious foods as the hypothalamus is in peak function and the body responds properly to ingestion of excellent nutrition.

The emphasis in this phase is upon consuming protein, which should be significantly increased from P2, especially early in this phase, and fats.

DON'T OVERDO the protein.
60-75 grams protein daily is normally adequate without being
excessive.
 

Note:  This phase is NOT Atkins!!!  If Atkins worked, we'd be doing it and not this!  There are some similarities, but one may not eat unlimited protein & fat and maintain the health or weight reductions accomplished in Phase 2!!!

 

At this stage, I usually add

to my menu. 

You will probably be surprised at how much food you can eat with a properly functioning metabolism!

Recipes

If the weight exceeds the 2 lb limit, action must be taken that very day in the form of a 'Steak Day'.  If it falls below the limit, one must increase one's caloric intake to remedy this situation ASAP.  It is believed that if the weight goes more than 2 lbs under LDW, the body begins to draw from structural fat stores which can cause the hypothalamus to begin to malfunction again. 

If you are having a lot of fluctuation gaining weight, attempt to reduce fats & increase water, protein & veggies.

Then use this calculator to find your minimum calories that must be consumed on Phase 3 to MAINTAIN your LDW (Last Dose Weight) from the end of Phase 2 (use the sedentary calculation for minimum & active for maximum):

This will come in handy for both Phase 3 & 4: you will have an idea of how many calories you will need to adhere to in order to maintain within the 2 lb limit!

Phase 4

Final Maintenance Phase

This is the final Maintenance Phase.  One is advised to slowly add in starches and sugars to the diet, but to continue to monitor the morning weight daily with the same weight parameters described for P3, requiring immediate use of the 'Steak Day' should they be exceeded above the LDW.

If you will be doing more than one 'Round' of weight reduction on the Protocol, Simeons recommends, as do I, that one spend increasing amounts of time in Phase 4 before proceeding to attempt another Round as follows:

  • 3 weeks for Round 1

  • 5 weeks for Round 2

  • 9 weeks for Round 3

  • 17 weeks for Round 4

  • 21 weeks for Round 5

 

I did the P3 & P4 as required after Round 1, but didn't do P4 for any significant length of time again after that.  I have changed my recommendation for this, however, as I believe it is part of the reason I have experienced some issues with hunger after Rounds 4 & 5.  Many believe that P3 is important for completion of re-setting the hypothalamus. 

I think that it is important to do those  P4 weeks in order to:

  • allow the body to become used to the lower calorie intake while eating normally, and
  • psychologically avoid the emotional stress of food deprivation that can occur otherwise.

Phase 4 Recipes <----- Nice transition recipes to keep you on track!

Now you are ready to optimize your health with the ultimate eating plan!

There are two eating plans that I advocate for long term maintenance:

The Hallelujah Lifestyle

or The AntiFungal Kaufman 'Diet'

 

 
AntiFungal Phase One diet :  The initial phase is 10-14 days.  You can consume
  • fish,
  • eggs,
  • carrot juice,
  • herbal teas and
  • fruits, such as green apples, berries, grapefruits, lemons, limes and avocados.
  • You can eat just about any meat. Grass-fed beef is more healthful than feedlot beef, Kaufman says, because the cattle have grazed on fresh grass instead of being fed moldy grain.
  • Plain yogurt, butter, olive oil, nuts -- other than pistachios and peanuts -- and
  • vegetables excluding corn, potatoes and mushrooms are also among the foods you can eat.

All these foods have antifungal properties.  Grains are prohibited in the Phase One Diet for multiple reasons. Grains supply the body with sugar, which, the website states, provide the fungus with fuel. Additionally, many of the grains that Americans eat are infected with fungi.

It is possible that a fungal infection with candida may be helping to fuel any eating disorder you may be experiencing.

 

It is my opinion that another one of the best possible Phase 4 eating plan can be found at

Hallelujah Acres site. 

If you should find something wonderful, and there is quite an array of choices, to purchase there, please remember to use Health Minister ID # DUI when ordering so that we might get a tiny credit for referring you.

 

 

 

 
The Hallelujah Diet & LifestyleThe Hallelujah Diet Explained

The Hallelujah Diet book is available here

So what is The Hallelujah Diet® exactly?

It is the NUTRITION portion of an overall healthy LIFESTYLE

Once you understand The Hallelujah Diet®, you will find that it is very simple to prepare and follow the ratio of 85% raw and 15% cooked food each day.

The 85% Portion

This is the Hallelujah portion of The Hallelujah Diet®! An abundance of God’s natural foods that are uncooked (raw) and unprocessed. The dense living nutrients found in raw foods and their juices are the things that meet and satisfy your cells’ nutritional needs. When you eat these living foods, you will find that you no longer have to deal with hunger pangs or cravings.

Live foods are also what produce abundant energy and vibrant health. The following are items from each food category that fit into the 85% portion of each day’s food intake:

Beverages
Freshly extracted vegetable juices, BarleyMax®, and distilled water with WaterMax added.

Dairy Alternatives
Fresh almond milk, creamy banana milk, as well as frozen banana, strawberry or blueberry “fruit creams”

Fruit
All fresh, as well as unsulphured, organic dried fruit. Limit consumption to no more than 15% of daily food intake. (Fruit juice is included in this 15%, and is not recommended in large quantities.)

Grains
Soaked oats, millet, raw muesli, dehydrated granola, dehydrated crackers, and raw ground flax seed

Beans
Raw green beans, raw peas, sprouted garbanzo beans, sprouted lentils, and sprouted mung beans

Nuts and Seeds
Raw almonds, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, raw almond butter or tahini. Eat sparingly.

Oils and Fats
Extra virgin olive oil, raw unrefined flax oil and avocados



Seasonings
Fresh or dehydrated herbs, garlic, sweet onions, parsley, cayenne pepper and salt-free seasonings

Soups
Raw soups
 

Sweets
Fruit smoothies, raw fruit pies with nut/date crusts, date-nut squares, etc.
 

Vegetables
All raw vegetables



 

The 15% Portion

The following cooked foods make up the 15% portion of The Hallelujah Diet®, and follow the raw salad at the evening meal. This portion can be very delicious, and actually proves beneficial for those trying to maintain body weight.

Beverages
Caffeine free herb teas and cereal-based coffee-like beverages, along with bottled organic juices

Dairy
Non-dairy cheese, rice milk, and organic butter, all sparingly
 

Fruit
Stewed and unsweetened frozen fruits

 

Grains
Whole-grain cereals, breads, muffins, pasta, brown rice, millet, etc
 

Beans
Lima, aduki, black, kidney, navy, pinto, red and white beans


 

Oils
Mayonnaise made from cold-pressed oils


Seasonings

Light Gray Celtic® Sea Salt (use sparingly)


Soups

Soups made from scratch without fat, dairy, or table salt


Sweeteners

Raw, unfiltered honey, rice syrup, unsulphured molasses, stevia, carob, pure maple syrup, date sugar (use very sparingly)

Vegetables
Steamed or wok-cooked fresh or frozen vegetables, baked white or sweet potatoes, squash, etc.

While this list may appear a bit limiting at first, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of exciting recipes that meet these criteria.


The foods listed below create most of the physical problems we experience, and are not a part of The Hallelujah Diet®. To have real health, eliminate them from your diet as quickly as possible.  

Foods to Be Avoided

Beverages
Alcohol, coffee, tea, cocoa, carbonated beverages and soft drinks, all artificial fruit drinks, including sports drinks, and all commercial juices containing preservatives, salt, and sweeteners

Dairy
All milk, cheese, eggs, ice cream, whipped toppings, and non-dairy creamers
 

Fruit
Canned and sweetened fruits, along with non-organic dried fruits
 

Grains
Refined, bleached flour products, cold breakfast cereals, and white rice
 

Meats
Beef, pork, fish, chicken, turkey, hamburgers, hot dogs, bacon, sausage etc
 

Nuts & Seeds
All roasted and/or salted seeds and nuts. Peanuts are not a nut but a legume, and very difficult to digest.  

Oils
All lard, margarine, shortenings, and anything containing hydrogenated oils


 

Seasonings
Table salt, black pepper, and any seasonings containing them


 

Soups
All canned, packaged, or creamed soups containing dairy products


 

Sweets
All refined white or brown sugar, sugar syrups, chocolate, candy, gum, cookies, donuts, cakes, pies, or other products containing refined sugars or artificial sweeteners

Vegetable
All canned vegetables containing added sodium or preservatives, or vegetables fried in oil

Once you have stopped eating the foods that will harm your health and started eating the foods that will enhance your health, you may experience some symptoms of detoxification. If you do, take heart! This means you are getting rid of toxins that have been stored in your body!
