Is there a Simeon's Protocol for Dummies?
I have tried to read Inches and Pounds on the computer but find it very hard. I will have to print it out this weekend.
I'm just trying to grasp the basics of the HCG plan... Here is what I think it is. Please correct me.
2 days of loading... excessive calories and fat and good carbs with drops
21 days of 500 calories- 3 oz meat and veggies for lunch and dinner with drops ????some go longer on this phase?
Then excessive calories around 2500-3000 doing a low carb type of plan with no drops??????
How long is that phase?
Then if you have more to lose, you go back to the 500 calorie plan with drops?
Then once the weight is off, you go into maintenance... but at what calorie or carb content? and for how long????
I know I need to read I & P more thoroughly but just wanted to get more of an understanding from those that are or have been through it.

Here's the overview:
Tea or coffee in any quantity without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk allowed in 24 hours. Saccharin or Stevia may be used.
[100 grams of veal, beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp. All visible fat must be carefully removed before cooking, and the meat must be weighed raw. It must be boiled or grilled without additional fat. Salmon, eel, tuna, herring, dried or pickled fish are not allowed. The chicken breast must be removed from the bird.
[One type of vegetable only to be chosen from the following: spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage.
One breadstick (grissino) or one Melba toast.
An apple, orange, or a handful of strawberries or one-half grapefruit.
The same four choices as lunch (above.)
"What can I eat on the hCG Diet?"
Drinks and Seasonings permitted on the hCG Diet based on Dr Simeons original hcg diet protocol as written in Pounds and Inches.
The juice of one lemon daily is allowed for all purposes.
Salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic, sweet basil, parsley, thyme, majoram, etc., may be used for seasoning, but no oil, butter or dressing.
Tea, coffee, plain water, or mineral water (2 liters of water per day is recommended) are the only drinks allowed, but they may be taken in any quantity and at all times.
The fruit or the breadstick may be eaten between meals instead of with lunch or dinner, but not more than than four items listed for lunch and dinner may be eaten at one meal.
No medicines or cosmetics other than lipstick, eyebrow pencil and powder may he used without special permission.
Portions and specially prepared unsweetened, low calorie foods
"In many countries specially prepared unsweetened and low Calorie foods are freely available, and some of these can be tentatively used... the total daily intake must not exceed 500 Calories if the best possible results are to be obtained, that the daily ration should contain 200 grams of fat-free protein and a very small amount of starch." From Dr Simeon's "Pounds and Inches."

Depends on which drops you choose. I used DIY and those were 10 drops, 3X a day.
Each set of drops should come with instructions.
