500 Calorie Diet (VLCD)

Allowed foods each day totaling no more than 500 calories:

You can eat in any order throughout the day, but DO NOT eat less than 3 hours before bed.

2 Fruits/day Large handful for each serving.
Apple, ½ grapefruit, orange, strawberries, lemon
2 Veggies/day You can eat a LOT of veggies, but don’t mix the first round
Spinach, chard, beet greens, lettuce, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onion, radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage
2 meats/day 100 g (3.5 oz) each serving:
chicken breast
beef (steak, hamburger, roast, etc)
white fish (tilapia, orange roughy, etc)
lobster, crab, shrimp, oyster

Beverages: 1-2 cups coffee and all the tea and water you can drink.
2 tbsp milk if needed in coffee
some people make lemonade with their allowed lemon (but that is considered a serving of fruit)
Sweeteners: Minimum amounts of Splenda or stevia, xylitol, zsweet

Start out taking .125ml of hCG each time.

Day 1 & 2: Loading days:
~ take hcg in am. Hold under your tongue until it is dissolved.
~ Eat as much high fat foods you can stuff into yourself. You need
to force feed yourself on the 2nd day. Foods like cream cheese, ice cream,
donuts, cake, breakfast sausages, eggs, etc.
~ Measure yourself (waist, hips, arms, chest) and take pictures
~ Take hcg at bedtime. Hold under your tongue until it is dissolved

Days 3+: VLCD days:
~ Weigh yourself
~ take hcg in am. Hold under your tongue until it is dissolved
~ eat 500 calorie of food. Drink a TON of water to help flush out the fat
~ take hcg at bedtime. Hold under your tongue until it is dissolved

You may feel a bit of hunger the first week. Most of that is boredom hunger. Make sure you write down your weight each morning. Too much hcg or too little hcg will cause hunger. Most people experience NO hunger about day 5 or so, depending upon how well you load with fats.

This look like a promising diet. But still, if not combined with regular exercise, I'm not sure how much it will work.

This diet, combined with multivitamine taking, may do wonders for your health and body shape.

I've read in a book about this kind of diets, and the effects seem to be amazing. And in a very short period of time.

I know that this diet works, as my family has used it much to my initial skepticism. I am on day 4 of the diet and have already lost 7 lbs and feel much better than before I started. I highly recommend using this method.
