HCG Diet Plateau – No Problem

As you see, you have many ways to break a plateau on this diet, even if the apple day strategy does not work. Indeed, the apple day strategy often fails or has too small of an impact. It is really most appropriate for excessive fluid retention, which can be corrected very fast and lead to an easy loss of 4 to 6 pounds almost overnight.

Of course, if none of the advice from the links posted here work for you, then it is time to do some detective work and find out what the flaws in your protocol might be.

All the best in natural health,

    Dear Dr. Dennis,

    Thank you for your broad coverage of all things hCG. I am interested in what your response would be to those who say that transdermal hCG doesn’t work. Experience has shown that it does but the argument still persists that the molecule is too large to go through the skin. Any thoughts or direction?

    Many thanks,
    Ann Woods

    Hi, Ann:

    Great question. The notion that different membranes in our bodies do not absorb large molecules such as proteins has been cited many times. However, the key question is not whether the skin can absorb protein (e.g., HCG). The question is how efficiently can it do so. As you might expect, sublingual absorption and transdermal absorption absorb less efficiently than do injections. All that means is that the dosage must be adjusted upward for these two surfaces. That has been done experimentally for sublingual and transdermal forms of HCG so that they can be as effective as injectable HCG. The bottom line is that sublingual and transdermal HCG is as effective as injectable HCG.

    All the best,

    Over-the-counter weight-loss pills: Do they work?
    The temptation to use over-the-counter weight-loss pills to lose weight fast is strong. But are these products safe and effective?
    By Mayo Clinic staff

    The appeal of losing weight quickly is hard to resist. But do weight-loss pills and products lighten anything but your wallet? And are they a safe option for weight loss? Here’s a look at some over-the-counter weight-loss pills and what they will and won’t do for you.

    Over-the-counter (OTC) weight-loss pills: What you need to know
    A number of weight-loss pills are available at your local drugstore, supermarket or health food store. Even more options are available online. Most haven’t been proved effective, and some may be downright dangerous.

    How can companies sell potentially unsafe products? Dietary supplements and weight-loss aids aren’t subject to the same rigorous standards as are prescription drugs. Thus, they can be sold with limited proof of effectiveness or safety. Once a product is on the market, however, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) monitors its safety and can take action to ban or recall dangerous products.

    For this reason, it’s important to do your homework if you’re thinking about trying weight-loss pills. Read labels and talk with your doctor or pharmacist. Also check the FDA Web site for alerts about safety concerns and product recalls. The table shows common weight-loss pills and what the research shows about their effectiveness and safety. d

    To all my blog visitors: My comment on the above is just to show you the kind of absolute crap that contaminates the internet. The ‘article’ above is a fake. It says nothing. Its only purpose is to add a tag-along link back to a sales site. I normally do not approve these kinds of comments because they are just spam. In this case, in spite of crediting the link to the article publisher, I thought it worthwhile enough as a bad example to show you. If you have ever heard of someone who talks a lot and says nothing, this comment is an example of it. As I used to tell my children, this is ‘A number one crapola’.

    All the best,

    I have been on a plateau for over 2 weeks. I have tried all the ‘breakers’ I have found…I’ve done 3 apple days, I am taking the organic apple cider vinegar, I am only eating what is on Dr. Simeons plan, I am being ‘faithful’ to the diet as far as I know, I am not using any lotions or oils on my skin, I am taking the drops regularly…do you have any other suggestions for me. I will lose a pound or one-half pound one day and the next day I will have gained it back…I am on day 28 and am only one and one-half pound less than I was on day 13.
    thank you for any help!

    It sounds as though your body never went through the fluid-loss phase at the beginning. This is key. Fluid retention can stall your progress completely. Although it may seem contradictory, it is important to drink lots of water. The exception is when you are on an apple day. Dr. Simeons recommended taking in as little water as possible on such days.

    If I reach a plateau for a week and have done an apple day. Do I continue to take drops? and stay on the VLCD?

  9. by angela


    If you are holding fluid, does that mean you still may be burning fat? Even though the scales are not moving?

  10. by Dr. Dennis Clark


    Definitely continue on the HCG. Go back to the VLCD the day after your apple day.

  11. by Dr. Dennis Clark


    Good question, Angela. I’d say no, since we think that fluid retention comes from too much circulating food (generally carbs) in the first place.

    All the best,

    i’ve been on my second round of HCG injections for three weeks now, losing a pound a day. Now of all of a sudden I am at a plateau for 6 days now. I have had previous experience with plateaus from doing the diet before. unfortunately I only have 11 more days until my injections end and my doctor has told me that because I have been so previously successful, and my weight will be where it needs to be, that he will not permit me any more HCG. I have done an apple day, but had the feeling there was no water retention going on, I tried fiber pills for more frequent bowel movements, and even a laxative. But nothing has worked! I sat down and counted my calories to sadly discover I wasn’t reaching the full 500, so yesterday I made sure I had a full 500 and only lost two ounces! Are these two ounces a sign that tomorrow will be a bigger weight loss? These 11 days are extremely important, I need to loose at least five pounds to at least be near my goal weight range. Please help.

    Hi, Renee:

    I don’t know where your ideal weight is or how close you are to it. An apple day is effective, even after a 6-day plateau. If it still doesn’t work for you and your doctor suspects that you have become resistant to hCG, then go with it. Finish the protocol with a 3-day washout, followed by maintenance phase. Make sure that you wait more than 6 weeks to do another round, if that is your plan.

    All the best,

    I have found that consuming apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, grapefruit, and over a gallon of water a day has helped. On vlcd 25 and have lost 50 lbs and 25 inches. But I cut out red meat. Only steamed fish and chicken. When I started to stall I upped my protein intake by 1.5 times at lunch and lost 4 lbs overnight. Anyone else found any ways to accelerate this diet?
