Original email for context: I’m wondering if you have any insight as to why you load for only 48 hrs (2 days) but to get off the hcg you need to still do vlcd for 72 hrs (3 days). Why would that be?
The 72 hours at the end of the very low calorie diet actually includes the last day of your injection or dose of hCG – meaning 72 hours starting immediately following your last injection (not the following day)- so technically it’s only 48 hours of non-injection days total – does that make sense? So it’s the same technically!
I have a post with a handy chart to show you more about the 72 hour period to get off hCG properly.
