We often hear HCG dieters telling us “I missed my shot of HCG, what will happen next?”,“ I forget to take my daily morning shot. Will I lose weight today?” or “I went for a short vacation and I just realize that I left my HCG kit back”.
Now, why not take a deep breath, relax, don’t panic because everything’s going to be just fine. You are not going to starve nor you will experience a weight-loss stall.
How long does it take to get the HCG hormone out of the system?
Typically, it takes around 10 days for the HCG hormone to leave your system. Now, that is, if you are using a higher dose in treating fertility issues. In the case of the HCG Diet, the hormone remains in your body for roughly 3 days. Why is this? In the HCG Diet, you only use a minuscule dose between 125 iu to 200 iu depending on how much weight you want to lose and how the hormones affect your hunger level, so it won’t stay in your system for too long.
If you are worried about missing your shot, well, you still have HCG running in your system for three days. That means to say, you still have the hormone in your body to stimulate your brain in releasing stored fats for energy- meaning, you won’t go starving for the day, nor you will experience a stall.
So, what next?
Have you HCG shot if it is close to when you should have taken it, for example, within two hours or so? Then continue with your normal dosing schedule for the rest of the doses. If you have totally forgotten your dose, relax, as you have plenty of HCG left in your body from your last few doses. It’s not the end of the world. Remember that it takes three days for the hormone to leave your system. All you have to do is to get back on track as soon as you can. Also, always stick to a very low-calorie diet. You don’t have to change your eating plan just because you have missed a dose.
It’s best to take the HCG injection each morning upon waking up. Make it a part of your daily routine, like drinking your coffee or brushing your teeth. As you get into this type of habit of taking HCG after brushing your teeth, it becomes part of your daily routine. You can, however, take it later if you forget. This only applies to those who do not work. In case you forget to take the HCG one day, don’t panic and don’t double dose the following day, just keep taking it as usual.
You’ll do great!
