HCG Diet Phase 2 Summary
(Part 1 of 3)
This part of the HCG Diet has many different names. You may know it as or hear it referred to as one of the following names: Phase 2, P2, VLCD, Very Low-Calorie Diet Phase, 500 Calorie Diet Phase. They are all the same part of the diet, just to clear up any possible confusion.
HCG Phase 2 basically consists of three basic parts: Gorging, VLCD (500 calorie) dieting, and exit days.
Part 1: 2 days of gorging while taking the HCG drops
Take the HCG Diet drops and eat as much fatty food as you can possibly get down without making yourself ill.
Part 2: Phase 2 VLCD (500 calorie phase)
Take the HCG Diet drops at eat according to the very, specific 500 calories per day, very-low calorie diet food plan.
Part 3: 3 days of 'exiting'

Part 1: HCG Diet Gorge Days:
- Day #1 & #2 are called gorging days or loading days
- This is when you take your HCG Diet drops and eat lots of fatty foods to prepare your body for the diet.
- Try to eat as much fatty food as you can without making yourself physically ill.
- Foods with a high-fat content are the key to gorging (cheese, meat, butter, salmon, nuts, extra virgin olive oil, etc.), not sugary foods.
- Some of the most common foods for gorging on the HCG Diet are pizza, avocados, anything fried in oil, whole milk, ranch dressing, etc.
- We have some example of gorge day menus so you can get an idea of what to eat, click here.
- Remember to also eat anything that you will miss during the next month while on Phase 2 of the HCG Diet.
- Enjoy these two gorge days as much as possible because you will be on a very strict low-calorie diet.
- REMEMBER: You must take your HCG Diet drops during the two days of gorging.
