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:
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
which I highly recommend. In this video, he discusses the concept, as well as the Genesis 1:29 way of eating:
This is the Reduction Phase of the Protocol. It consists of:
The VLCD only allows 500 calories and only of certain foods:

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!
your Protocol on budget
The best way I have found to do the VLCD is to
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:
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
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:
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:
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.
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:
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.
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!
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):
Here are the foods to choose, then, in red chart, to avoid during Phase 3:
Green Chart is relatively safe, low glycemic, low starch.
(Note: *='Negative Calorie Food')
(Note: This chart does not include meat, dairy, or eggs, though those items are allowed by original Protocol as long as they are low in sugar, this author does not find them optimal for health)
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:
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:
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
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.

The 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:
Soaked oats, millet, raw muesli, dehydrated granola, dehydrated crackers, and raw ground flax seed
All raw vegetables
The 15% Portion
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
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!
