I can’t believe it! After a few scribblings on a notebook 6 months ago, many many hours of painstaking writing and design, much feedback from both my email list and Facebook (you guys are truly awesome – be sure to check out the gratitude page of the workbook if you guys purchase it ;), the hCG Diet Workbook is finally ready for you! It clocks in at 272 pages and 6 sections. This was not thrown together by any means. I carefully crafted this to be as useful and appropriate to us hCGers needs as possible. Since I have done this protocol, I understand what these needs are.
My Dad and I had a laugh the other day. It went something like this.
My Dad: “Well! So now you are a published author…the first of the family.”
Me, “Welllll……kinda. I mean, it’s self-published, which means a dog could be a published author too.”
Not so notable when you realize that lol. Although, I don’t think a dog could put together an hCG workbook like this, so I suppose on some level it is special. 🙂
I also have a special thank you gift for everyone who supports the release of the book by purchasing it during the first month.
When you buy the workbook between April 19th-May 20th, just email your book receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will get a 5 Day hCG Video Course that I created specially for this – brand new stuff that’s not currently on my blog.
Thank you all SO much for all the support and goodwill that you have have sent my way. Honestly the workbook would not have been completed without your positive input. It was just so much work, knowing that you all really wanted it made me keep hacking away at it. 😉 In fact, I don’t know if you guys recall a couple months ago I sent an email out to everyone, asking them to send me their photo and their story. I wanted to see WHO I’m writing to on this blog – your faces. I knew it would help me keep going. Here you all are on my wall: 🙂
Video Tutorial of Workbook Coming Soon!
I will be adding a video tutorial where I’ll actually show you visually all this stuff I’ve about to talk about in a few more days – till then, here’s a little rundown of what you’ll find inside the hCG Diet Workbook for Phase 2!
It was a feeling I didn’t expect when I opened the box containing my first proof copies of the workbook in a real book. I’ve been looking at these same pages for several months, but they’ve been three whole punched papers printed of my printer in an orange binder. When I opened the box (you can see my reaction above! I waited so I could share it with you all) I felt giddy inside! It was a weird feeling – pleasant and happy of course, but just so weird!
I am truly hopeful of it’s usefulness for you guys.
When I am deciding if I need something, I like to get as much information about it as possible. I hate when there’s only 1 image and I have no idea what’s inside.
But I may not be normal. I probably have a syndrome actually because I’ll stand and stare at a package of socks for like 15 minutes, trying to decide if I really need them, or if I DO need them, if they’re really the socks for me.
So in case you’re like me and need to be fully briefed on the content on your socks, I am going to share with you exactly what you will find inside the Phase 2 hCG Diet Workbook, as well as what you won’t find, so you can see if it will be useful for your needs.
If you’re new to this diet and want to succeed the first time through, or if you’ve failed at this diet before, this just may be the book to change your outcome next time. In this workbook you’ll find what I truly hope is the right combination of extensive guidance, journaling & detailed daily tracking worksheets to aid your success.
Let me break down the 6 sections of the book for you guys:
Section 1: Guidance for Success
This area covers the type of stuff that no one else tells you about because they don’t know about it. It’s all the realizations that took me from yo-yo dieting for years to being able to lose and maintain. The thoughts here are based on a marriage of both logic and mental outlook.
Inside this section we’ve got:
- 4 Reality Checks
- Discussion on Expected Weight Loss on hCG
- Stalls/Plateaus on the Diet
- When to Allow Failure and How to Plan Better for Next Time
- Should a Number Be Your Ultimate Goal?
- Happiness & Health as an Ultimate Goal
- Never Say Never…Or Say Never, but Then Embark on the Journey Anyway
Section 2: Diet Instructions
The complete directions for the original diet that Dr. Simeons created, along with modifications that many are using that I feel comfortable recommending. I’ve laid it out visually in a very easy to understand way – at least that was my intent. I guess the feedback will let me know if I succeeded or not!
Section 3: Quick Glance Progress
This section contains areas for:
- Starting and ending photo
- Tips on Measuring Yourself
- Inch Loss Results
- Inch Loss Tracking Log – Phase 2
- Inch Tracking Log – Phase 3
- Quick Glance Weight Tracking – Phase 2
- Quick Glance Weight Tracking – Phase 3
- Troubleshooting Log – Phase 2
Essentially, these areas are designed so that you can see a lot of your basic stats that you’re keeping track of, at one time.
Section 4: Main Phase 2 Tracking Area
This is the main section for DAILY tracking of your round of hCG during Phase 2. There are 9 full weeks worth of daily tracking charts! So if you have a very long round, you’re covered.
Features on these pages: Daily tip, quote, or recipe from either myself or other hCGers.
Types of stuff you can track on these pages:
- hCG Dosage
- Hunger level
- Hours of sleep
- Injection location
- Drops/Pellets Dosing
- Simple check off boxes for foods you eat each day.
- Liquids/Water intake – in either Liters OR Ounces!
- Space provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner for those who include a breakfast.
- Space to indicate if something was an in between meal snack.
- Daily personal notes area
- Calorie area for each meal (should you choose to do this)
- Areas to fill in your own “other” foods of your own choosing.
- Weekly inspirational Quote
- Weekly personal reflection area
Section 5: Reflections and Personal Notes
This area has a section for reflecting on your entire round at the end – the triumphs, the struggles, as well as several pages of blank note area for you to write whatever you need.
Section 6: Phase 2 Calorie Count Charts
This area has the approximate calorie value/carbs/protein/fat for various amounts of the Phase 2 foods, as well areas to input your own off protocol foods should you choose to include them.
How the Workbook is Flexible and Can Adapt to Different Methods on the Protocol:
I’ll add this section soon!
If you have any questions please feel free to ask, I’m one of those have-to-go-overboard-on-research-before-i-buy type people too.
If you think it will be useful for you, you can purchase the hCG Diet Workbook on Amazon.
