How to load?
Loading is typically done for 2 days. But some people can load for 3 days. How you load while on HCG Diet as is important as loading itself.
First, select a day to begin. Choose a day that is NOT close to your period if you’re women.

How much should I eat?
Everyone is different. There is no set amount of how much should you eat. It is suggested that you eat until you are satisfied and not stuffed. So go ahead and eat like there is no tomorrow.
