Are you following our new program: The hCG Diet and Protocol? If so, there is a handy application available on smart phones called hCG Companion by Appilicious. Of course, first things first, you should always consult with one of clinicians before using the application.
To Get Started
The application is $10.99 but worth it if you are looking for something to keep you on track. On the main screen you will want to pull down the menu bar to get to the setup screen. Under the ‘setup’ tab you can put in your start date as well as your first weight-in and measurements. Make sure to tell your clinician you are keeping track and need your measurement numbers. In the setup screen you can also set up a daily reminders for your injection.
In the plan section you can plan out your meals. This is a great feature that allows you to select your veggies, fruit and meat for each meal. After selecting food for one day, you can also tab over and enter in meals for multiple days. The section will also allow you to view the menu for each day and it has a convenient shopping list that you can bring with you to the grocery store.
If you are uncertain about what foods you can eat, you can select the “Can I eat?” tab and it will tell you what foods are allowed during each stage of the program. Please keep in mind our specific recommendations may vary a little from the actual hCG Diet and Protocol. If you have specific questions about a particular food on the list please check with your clinician or office support team.
In the track section of the application you can graph your changes in weight and measurements throughout the process. This may help you to stay motivated as you progress through the different phases of the program. You also have the option of taking a photo journal and keeping notes. You could write about your experience and take pictures along the way. What a great way to track changes!
This section is pretty neat. It gives you the opportunity to look over the manuscript that started it all, Pounds & Inches. There is also a Podcast available and additional information about each of the stages of the program.
Are you looking for further information or a site that offers members the opportunity to share and support one another? You will find this under the ‘Help’ tab. Don’t forget our clinic staff is always available for questions and support too!
After entering in all your data, the main screen is the best place to see your daily plan. You can check off meals eaten, water intake, shots, and any exercise your performed. The main screen will also tell you what phase and day you are currently in.
This is a fun interactive tool that will keep you interested and makes it easy for you to keep up with the protocol if you are challenged with a busy work/life schedule. It will provide you with daily reminders and is very user friendly. Logging takes minimal effort but provides you will plenty of information and support. Try it for yourself!
