Loading days 1 and 2

 Loading: Day 1 and Day 2 of the protocol

This is your free pass for 2 days to seriously PIG OUT!

    1. Do NOT try to limit your food during these days; the fattening food is necessary for the diet to work correctly, and more importantly to re-establish the structural fat that’s been reduced or lost by years of fad-dieting. The more you eat, the better results you are going to have. Those who do not load to the fullest also experience difficult hunger pains throughout the protocol. You SHOULD gain weight on the loading days, you will lose it all within the first week, probably even the first 2 days!

   2. It may seem impossible to load yourself with really fatty, unhealthy items (especially if you’re on your second or third round of the protocol) and by the end of the first day your going to be thinking “OM Gosh!  What was I thinking”, but  here is a list of healthy items you can load on that are high in fat You want high fat foods not necessarily high sugar foods. But of course those two seem to go hand and hand.

          * Healthy Cold Pressed Oils

          * Drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sesame Oil, Coconut Oil on everything!

          * Avocados : 26.5 grams for just one of these beauties…slather some Veganaise in the pit dent and eat with a  spoon!!!       

          * Nuts: Especially Walnuts, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, Pine Nuts, in that order, can really boost your fat gram load

          * Nut Butters & Tahini

          * Seeds: Sesame, Sunflower, Pumpkin are all great!

          * Coconut: The oil, the milk, the meat … fabulous! May also contribute to healing thyroid gland.

          * Olives: Green or black, and stuff them with Tahini!

          * Eat foods that you crave that are especially high in fat such as Dairy Queen, cakes, cookies, custards, creams, pastries, chocolate, etc. as it has a psychological effect of saying good bye (for now!)

          * Focus on high caloric creamy foods.

          * Drink whatever you want on your load days; including soda, beer, wine, sake, etc.

   3. Be sure to take pictures and measurements at this beginning stage so you can see the difference in your body and watch those inches melt away!  The best thing to remember is to always measure in the same location. Also, if you do not have a measuring tape available, use twine or cording to take the measurements, and mark with a black permanent marker…watch the lines get smaller and smaller.

   4. If you are concerned about cheating, go through your pantry and cupboards and remove anything that might tempt you. Donate the food, do not THROW it away.

   5. Dr. Simeons specifically lists milk chocolate, pastries with whipped cream, sugar, fried meats (particularly pork), eggs and bacon, mayonnaise, bread with thick butter and jam, etc. We recommend you eat at least SOME of these foods.

   6. Get your kitchen prepared with the food that is on the low calorie protocol, make sure you have a scale to weigh yourself daily, have a food scale for weighing your protein portions. fruits, vegs, spices and seasonings.

   7. The BEST suggestion is to read, and re-read, Dr. Simeons manuscript. Take the time to print it out, read it, and highlight important sections. Then you can prepare your grocery list for the protocol ahead.

HAPPY Gorging! HAPPY Losing!


  1. The first phase is 3 days, second phase starts on the 4th day. So your gorging 3 full days

  2. The gorging is for the first 2 days. You will want to dose and gorge for both days and then on the third day you will dose and start on the vlcd (very low calorie diet).
    I would be happy to send the protocol to you.

    Thank you
    I hope this helps

  3. How many days you gorge is up to you. I’m an expert on this protocol. Most people want to gorge as few days as possible and that contributes to stumbling through. I personally gorged 2.5 days my first roung and I was NEVER hungry for the 27 days I was on it. Not once- not ever. And, I struggled to fit in 500 calories. I generally ate between 350-400 calories a day.

    2 1/2 loading days were perfect me, and I was not a habitual dieter. Truth be told, my structural fat and normal fat stores were probably fine, lol. I hadn’t done any low fat dieting in years- but the 2.5 days were absolutely perfect.
    If you have been low fat for any length of time in the 6 months, go 3.5 days. If you are habitually a low fat eater, go 4 days. The more recently and more extreme your low fat dieting has been, the more loading days you’ll need.
    Under no circumstances should you go more than 4.5 days of loading.
    Your target fat each load day is 250 grams. That’s why emphasizing non-meat and dairy sources is a good idea. That’s a whole lot of saturated fat.

    Peanut Butter is fabulous for when you are sick of eating (by the end of the 2nd day for me) but still need to load. Measure out 1/4 or 1/2 cup and eat it with a spoon. Another easy thing to eat was a whole jar of olives. Throughout the day, I’d just eat some random olives straight out of the jar and by the end of the day they provided me with tons of semi-good fats.

    For my 2nd round, I did 2 full days and again was not hungry at all for the first 3 weeks. I cheated into the fourth week, and that created some hunger, but that’s a whole ‘nother phase :)

    I’m starting my 3rd round this week– I’ll likely gorge for 2 days again.

    And, not to digress too much, as a hands on expert I highly recommend doing a ketosis diet during your 3 week stabilization phase. It’s worked for me twice now– have never had to do a steak day, have never gained or lost more than 2 pounds between round.

    Good luck– and remember– you are loading FAT. Read labels and make sure you aren’t eating too many no -fat, high starch items like Hershey’s syrup, sherbert, and such like that. Make your goal 250 grams of fat a day, emphasize non-meat, non- dairy (but both are fine to eat) and Good Luck! :)

  4. Thank you for your info… It’s nice to get other peoples input.
