hCG Diet: What to Eat During Phase 1?

Unbeknownst to a lot of people, the hCG diet actually entails a lot of phases (4 phases, to be exact). Each phase of the said diet plan serves a purpose to help you lose weight.

Phase 1 of the hCG diet is considered to be the “loading phase” and in this phase, you are supposed to “load up” on calories.

What I mean by this is that you will eat the fattest, most calorie-laden foods you can get your hands on. Do you like Pizza? Go ahead and eat it. Maybe you want some donuts after that? Go ahead and eat it.

The idea of phase 1 is to prep your body for the rigorous calorie restriction that is to follow. I say rigorous because people who want to lose weight always struggle when the calorie restriction begins.

Now, the foods that I’ve mentioned are just some of the foods you can eat safely on phase 1. But in this article, I will talk about the foods that you can eat on phase 1 and how you eat affects your overall hCG diet progress.

1. Fatty Fruits. There is actually a group of fruits that are considered to be “fatty”. These fruits, albeit healthy and nutritious, contains a lot more calories than other fruits. Some of these fruits are avocados, passion fruit, Kiwi, among others. If you want to prep for phase 1 of the hCG diet, then be sure to eat a lot of these.

2. Nuts. Another fatty food you may want to gorge on in this phase of the hCG diet is nuts. Nuts contain not only fat but it also contains a lot of goodies that your body needs. In fact, studies have shown that people who eat nuts have better cognitive functions than those who don’t. My suggestion would be to eat some pine nuts, cashew nuts, and sesame seeds.

3. Heavy-Calorie Foods. I’ve previously mentioned that you can eat donuts and pizza while you’re loading up. The thing is, you want to eat foods that, although contains a lot of calories, it must also contain the macronutrients your body needs. The Macronutrients that you need are Protein, Carbs, and Fat. For example, if you eat a pizza, you may want to opt for the meatlovers pizza because it contains a lot of meat and meat equals more protein. Protein is an essential part of any diet as it is the building block of muscles.

4. Dairy Products. I am especially weak when it comes to Ice Cream. So, if you feel the same way, now is the perfect time to eat a lot of it. Also, you can drink milk as well as it contains calcium and a host of other nutrients that are good for your body.

These are just some of the foods you can eat during phase 1 of the hCG diet. Again, the idea of the loading phase is to prepare your body for what’s to come (calorie-restricted meals).

Armed with this knowledge, you can now face the hCG diet plan with a renewed vigor and determination.

T-Mobile Personal Cellspot Router

Wouldn’t it be great if you can have a router that not only has great performance, but also gives you the ability to make calls? That’s a really great feature to have, right? Well, that is no longer a dream, because it has become a reality!

Introducing the T-Mobile Personal Cellspot Router. The Cellspot is just a rebranded version of the Asus RT-AC68U, but do not be fooled, the ability to get call signals is just an absolutely great addition to this router.

The Cellspot is like your normal router, but it offers great performance. For starters, it is a three-stream WiFi Router that intelligently discerns the stream where you can get the best possible speeds at a time.

The router also has 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports if you want to have wired connectivity. It also benefits from the new WiFi technology 802.11ac, which boasts of speeds of up to 1.3MBps on the 5GHz and 600MBps on the 2.4GHz band.

The Cellspot also comes with one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 port for media sharing and the sharing of printers within your network.

The setup of this Router is very easy. You just fire up your browser, and you will then be redirected to the router’s main GUI. When you are on the GUI, you will be prompted to set up both the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands according to your preferences.

Even though this is just a rebranded router, there are a few limitations that come with it. First, it doesn’t have the original dual-wan feature, wherein one of the Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports act as a second WAN port. Plus, it doesn’t have 4 guest WiFi access, as it is only limited to 2. Still, this won’t really be a major bother, but this is just a heads up just in case you want to know.

But, the biggest difference of the Cellspot is the WiFi-calling capability. It seems to be prioritizing any cell-related services such as WiFi-Calling and texting. The feature is just baked into the router, making it one of the best routers if your phone supports WiFi-Calling.

All in all, this is a very good router/WiFi-Calling device. But, how does this translate to the real world? Let us find out:

Reggie: “I’ve got the new iPhone 6s and it’s got WiFi-Calling on it. I am really on the lookout for something that can boost this capability, and luckily, I found the Cellspot. It not only acts as an amplifier to the WiFi-Calling feature, but it is also a robust router. I am very pleased with the Cellspot.”

Deshaun: “The Cellspot’s ability to prioritize WiFI-calling I think is its strongest feature. Even when I streaming movies over the internet, and I needed to use the WiFi-Calling feature on my Galaxy S6, I can hear the call clarity and the voice on the other side can be heard as well. This is a really solid product!”

The T-Mobile Personall Cellspot Router is a really good router, and it only costs $99!
