It is recommended to undertake the diet for 6 weeks. In total they will allow 40 injections to be administered and/or 15kg of weight loss, the injections will be stopped after one of these has been reached.
The HCG diet is a controversial diet aimed at losing between 1-2 lbs a day. The diet involves eating a mere 500 calories per day and self administering a daily injection of human chorionic gonadotrophin, which is a hormone present in the placenta whilst pregnant and helps to release fat cells as well as controlling your metabolic system.
This diet consists of three stages. Stage one involves eating excessively until the 3rd injection. After this, the 500 calorie a day diet is now applied and there are also restrictions on personal care products such as no lotions or moisturiser and limiting the makeup you use to items such as; lipstick, face powder and other products free of fatty substances for 72 hours.
After this time, you can eat anything apart from sugar (including sweet fruits) and starch for three weeks. Finally, after another 3 weeks starch is slowly included back into the diet in small portions and weight is monitored very closely. In total the injections can be administered for a maximum of 40 days.
There are many different plans you can opt for on the HCG diet; the one outlined above is the original HCG diet.

Wow.  Your drops are super expensive.  I pay $27 for mine and the ingredients are exactly the same.  I get mine at www.hcghomeopathicweightlossmethod.com and they work great.

I would love to know the answer to this question!
I stopped the shots 4 days ago and have a positive pregnancy test today.
I called FAQ and they said all traces should be gone after 3 days, and I should contact doctor.
I tested throughout the diet and had very faint positives but this test seems darker so I have big question marks...I guess I will have to wait a couple days and see if it gets darker...

Both of you are buying homeopathic hcg drops which contain little to no hcg. If the word "homeopathic" is invloved, it is NOT genuine HCG.

The recommended allotted time is 23 days with a couple weeks of safe eating to prevent yo-yo dieting.  I get my drops from www.skinnybunz.com they have great customer service.  Whenever my friends diet for longer than 23 days and he wasn't losing weight as fast.  Also when she stopped after going longer she gained more weight back.  I'd say stop the diet after the prescribed time and then wait a couple weeks and start again.
