DIY HCG was the first online company to sell HCG drops and has continued to work with our customers to bring them the best and most reliable HCG drops and HCG diet information. We use HCG that is manufactured in the United States and that is held to the highest standards in homeopathic supplement creation. Plus, we make sure to give you ONLY products and information that adhere 100% to Dr. Simeons’ Manuscript: Pounds and Inches, A New Approach to Obesity because we want to make sure that you have only the highest success rate possible while taking the journey of the HCG diet.

If you don’t already know, Dr. Simeons was an Italian doctor in the 60’s who formulated the HCG diet process. He worked with obese patients of all ages for over 20 years to create the perfect formula for the HCG diet to allow maximum weight loss and maintenance. He tried many, many things before releasing only those that worked in his manuscript for other medical professionals to see. However, since the diet was discovered, many people (patient and doctors alike) have made up their own ways to change the diet and make it so it is “easier” for their client/customer to lose weight. This may include allowing foods that weren’t on Dr. Simeons’ original food list or saying it is okay to use normal lotion/beauty products. However, while it may make the diet and beauty routine less strict, these changes can hinder speed of weight loss and also stop the detoxing effect that the HCG diet is supposed to have on your body and your hypothalamus (see Dr. Simeons’ Manuscript for more information on this).

So, all of our products and recommendations will follow the strict Dr. Simeons protocol. In fact, we created many of our products specifically for people who are on Phase 2 also known as the VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) Phase of the Diet or for those on Phase 3 (also known as the Maintenance Phase) of the HCG diet. Furthermore, we are the home of Linda Prinster, Leanne Mennemeier, and Tiffany Prinster, all creators and authors of successful (and helpful) HCG diet books.

Our specially designed Phase 2 products include: HCG P2 Salad Dressings (Including Citrus Ginger, Vinaigrette, and Sweet Mustard), BBQ Sauce (which is an EXCELLENT addition to your VLCD meals and the ONLY one currently on the market that is allowed while on HCG), Hot Sauce, Spices (Including Lemon Herb Seasoning, All-Purpose Seasoning, Hot Pepper Steak Seasoning, and Louisiana Sweet Seasoning), and we are always adding more food items.

We also offer Phase 2 Safe beauty products. Again, if you are just learning about the diet, you may say – “Why would I need new beauty products while on the HCG diet?” Well, let us tell you.

While on the HCG Diet, you are not allowed to put anything that has any fats or oils in it onto your skin (EXCEPT baby oil, which makes no sense, but that’s the rule). So, you need to check all of your make up and items such as soap, shampoo, hair products, LOTIONS, and more before you apply to your skin during the VLCD because if they contain any fats or oils, they WILL stall your weight loss OR make you gain. Don’t believe us? Try it yourself. Although, we wouldn’t recommend it as it will only slow you down. :)

So, we created a line of beauty products to use while you are on the HCG diet that includes Tiffalina’s HCG safe lotion, lip balm, shampoo, and conditioner. And although these products aren’t the most creamy and luxurious products out there, they will help you make it through the VLCD until you can use your normal products again.

Finally, for Phase 3 of the diet, we have developed an “Easy Protein” line that are snacks and foods that are high in protein and low in carbs, making them a great addition to your HCG Maintenance food list. With these yummy snacks, P3 will feel like a breeze to you.

If you decide that the HCG diet is right for you, good luck! There is so much information to be found about the diet, but it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Just take a deep breath, find some great P2 and P3 recipes, get your shopping done, and find something to distract you as you make your way through this awesome (yet sometimes difficult) weight loss plan.

Also, please feel free to check out the site and Dr. Simeons’ Manuscript: Pounds and Inches, A New Approach to Obesity. And never hesitate to call us with any questions that you might have. You can reach us at 888-389-0626 or email us at info@diyhcg.com. Even if you don’t want to talk to a live person, you can call our phone number and follow the instructions to listen to a short 5-minute recorded overview of the HCG diet. Sometimes just hearing it all in one place can help to clear up some misunderstandings that you may have.

HCG Phase 2 Recipes: HCG Grilled Shrimp Salad

This 'Grilled Shrimp Salad' for phase 2 of the HCG diet is one of my favorites! It's fresh, clean, and taste amazing when topped with the right type of salad dressing!HCG Diet Grilled Shrimp Salad Recipe

  • 100 grams (3.5 ounce) medium sized shrimp
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 grissini stick (see the kinds we recommend here)
  • 2 cups of lettuce
  • 2 tbsp your chosen type of HCG safe salad dressing (see the kinds we recommend here)

First, make sure you have the correct type of shrimp. We recommend using pre-cooked, medium size thawed shrimp (in the frozen food section). If you have fresh or non-precooked shrimp simply boil the shrimp to thoroughly cook before grilling. Large sized shrimp take about 5-7 minutes to boil, medium sized shrimp take about 3-4 minutes to boil. 

Next, skewer the shrimp.  If using wood skewers, make sure they were pre-soaked for at least an hour before use.

Then, in a small bowl mix together the spices (salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne pepper) until well combined. Next, sprinkle or rub the spice mixture onto the shrimp skewers. Then, preheat a non-stick surface such as a george foreman grill, out-door bbq grill, or similar. Sear both sides of the shrimp over high heat for 1-2 minutes a side.. Remember the shrimp is already cooked, and this step is just for the sear. Do not overcook the shrimp or it may become tough. Remove the shrimp from grill when ready, set aside to cool. 

Once the shrimp are cooled, remove from skewers and place in a medium sized bowl. Cut lettuce into bite-sized pieces (about 1/4 inch) and add to the same bowl. You can choose any type of lettuce for this recipe, we used romaine lettuce and it turned out great!

Add your chose type of HCG safe salad dressing to the bowl with the shrimp and lettuce. Toss until well combined. For this recipe we used the Simple Girl brand of HCG Diet Safe Vinaigrette Dressing. Transfer the salad mixture to a serving dish. Serve with any flavor of grissini stick (original, garlic, or multi-grain), for this recipe we used the original flavor grissini sticks). If you want to get really fancy, break the grissini stick into smaller pieces and sprinkle over the salad for an add crunch, like croutons. 

This recipe is safe for phase 2 of the HCG diet and counts as 1 vegetable serving, 1 'carb' serving, and 1 protein serving.
