Both formulations Weight Management Diet Drops or VLC Soft-Gel capsules, cannot be taken just on their own they must be taken in conjunction with the diet for the best optimal results.
The first two days of the diet program are called the ‘Loading Days’ Many people feel excited about doing this phase it is good to start to the program but by the second day you will probably be sick of eating so much food.
Loading phase consists of the first 2-3 days, during this time you are encouraged to eat plenty of calories and healthy fatty foods for example nuts avocados ,olive oil, salmon, bacon ,eggs. Eat as much as you can without feeling uncomfortable. Make the most of this phase and eat the foods you like as you won’t be able to eat them for a while after this phase.
Phase-1: Is preparing your body for the VLCD (very low-calorie diet) ahead of 500 calories. The purpose of the loading days is to build up normal fat stores if you do not complete the loading days properly you may be hungry on the protocol. Give your body time to absorb the drops into your system.
Some customers have commented they will gain weight do not worry this extra weight will come off during a short period of time this is a very important part of the diet and must not be missed this process will make it easier moving on into phase 2 – (500 calories) without feeling hungry.
Phase 2 The VLCD (very low calorie diet) Take your selected formula choice and begin the very low calorie diet of 500 calories daily. Follow phase in the step-by-step guide in the printed book. Drink plenty of water daily including lots of plain filtered water, tea or green tea a good idea is to carry bottle of water to sip throughout the day to stay well hydrated. Water plays an important role to move nutrients around in your body and flush out the toxins and waste.
If your weight loss comes to a plateau the Apple Day is used to get your weight moving again during the VLCD phase. Included in your diet plan are step-by-step guide sheets for either 23 days or 40 days program.
You must be fully committed to follow the specific foods not eating any sugar or fats instead having fresh vegetables, fruits,proteins along with the specific amounts as set our in the All-In-One-Printed guide you must not go over the 500 calorie limit daily.

Transitioning from Phase 2 to Phase 3
After you have completed phase 2 you stop taking the Diet Drops, you will need continue to follow the restricted 500 calorie diet for two days so the formulation can leave your body. 2-3 Days is an estimated time for the formulation to be flushed from your body then you will continue on to the maintenance phase.
Phase 3: ‘Maintenance Phase’
No Diet Drops are taken(No Sugar or Starch)
You will now begin to normalize your calorie intake although you can have as much calories as you like,we have placed a daily limit this will stop you from going over board undoing all your hard work.Have 1200-1600 per day select healthy fresh foods and good fats, good oils for a minimum of three weeks,you do not take the diet drops and you must avoid all sugars and starches grains and potatoes,beans corn.
During this time your body stabilizes the weight you have lost. Your weight may fluctuate if you gain more than 2 kilos from your VLCD weight in phase 2 Dr.Simeon’s recommends doing a high protein day called Steak Day.
Steak day is used to correct gained weight and only used in the maintenance and after not in phase 2. Make sure you eat as much whole foods a variety of fresh vegetables, proteins, fruits ,healthy oils nuts and seeds.
