Lose 20-60lb or more in 20-60 days!!! hCG WORKS!

I've recently seen a friend of mine drop 40lb in 6 weeks and I want to help others do the same. I was skeptical when I first heard about the hCG diet, it's a very low calorie diet (VLCD) that helps people who have a large weight loss goal accomplish what they need to in the short term and helps set them up for long term success.

The drops are used for 26 days (lose 20-30lb), 43 days (lose 30-40lb) or up to 60 days in a cycle (lose 35-60lb). This is done in strict adherence to a specific diet based on the work of Dr. Simeons.

Keep in mind, with the Imagine Fitness program you will be supported with regular meetings to accurately track your progress and keep you motivated to stay on track. You'll need support to stick to it, but we can help you and you will see amazing result! Also, injections are NOT required, our program uses sub-lingual drops 6 times per day. Painless, simple and super effective for those who need to see immediate results to stay on track. This program works best for clients who need to lose at least 20lb up to 50lb or more in 60 days (that's only 2 months!).

Check out this link to see what's being said about hCG:

The hCG diet is balanced, unlike many extreme "fad" diets out there. It consists of a healthy variety of protein, vegetables and fruit, with a small amount of starch. You eat them in specific portions and combinations as outlined by Dr. Simeons.

  • Allowed proteins are veal (low grade), beef (95% lean whole cuts), chicken breast (boneless, skinless), crab, crayfish, lobster, shrimp, and any fresh, white-fleshed fish.
  • Allowed vegetables are asparagus, beet greens, cabbage, celery, chard, chicory greens, cucumber, fennel, green salad, onion, red radishes, spinach, and tomato.
  • Allowed fruits are apples, strawberries, oranges, and grapefruit. Limited starches include grissini (breadstick) or Melba toast. Vegetarian protein substitutions (may slow weight loss) are a protein shake, soy patty, egg (1 whole + 3 egg whites), cottage cheese or fat-free milk.
What foods are permitted on the hCG diet?

At least 2 litres of water each day.

Tea and black coffee in unlimited quantities are also permitted.

According to Dr. Simeons protocol, only Stevia, Xylitol or saccarin should be used for sweeteners.

In addition to that, 500 calories each day is made up of the following:


1 grisini or fat free melba toast and choice of 1 fruit (such as apple, orange, 1/2 grapefruit, or 6 large strawberries)

Lunch and Dinner:

100 grams of very low fat beef, veal, chicken, white fish, lobster, or shrimp, and 100 grams of one of the following vegetables - onion, tomato, celery, cucumber, spinach, or green lettuce (there are more protein and vegetable options listed on the actual directions)


1 grisini or fat free melba toast and choice of 1 fruit (listed above).

It is ideal to vary your fruit, vegetable and protein sources daily, rather than eat the same foods each meal or each day. It is also recommended to eat your fruit at least 6 hours apart.

Allergic to Pets? Try BIE!

Reactions to Pets? Consider BIE

I was recently speaking with a client who mentioned that she would absolutely LOVE to have a pet. A cat, a dog, she wasn’t picky – she has even considered a ferret. I thought maybe she chose not to have one because she worked long hours, or maybe she didn’t want the mess of animal hair. Perhaps she was worried about her new hardwood floors?
I was shocked to hear her say that she “couldn’t” have a pet because of allergies! I’ve had close friends over the years that’ve grudgingly come over to my cat-friendly home, taking their anti-histamines prior to their visit.
There is a great alternative that is 100% natural, painless, quick, no needles, no drugs – it’s called BIE.
I’m a cat person, so naturally I choose to have cats in my home. I’ve recently taken in a foster-cat with her brand new babies, and a few weeks later found a few more kittens looking for a new home outside my in-laws’ house. Come on over…why not? I have the space and a little boy who has had a wonderful experience interacting with newborn kittens.
There have been times in the past where I have been unable to have a pet; when my boy was little and I didn’t have the energy, or when we lived in an apartment and I couldn’t spare the space. Now we have several extra rooms and we love having new furry friends to share our home. Now, our second foster is about to have her kittens, who knows how many!
To think that all of this may not have been possible due of allergies is unthinkable.
Regardless of how long you’ve tolerated your pet allergy symptoms through medication, or whether your symptoms are a new and unwelcome visitor (due to stress, perhaps?), BIE can help.
Living in the basin between Hamilton and Toronto, we are exposed to a staggering number of allergens which we refer to as "stressors". There are varying levels of sensitivities from the well-known stuffy nose and watery eyes to the more subtle symptoms of itchy skin, weight gain or sleep disorders.
There are many factors involved in allergies and sensitivities including stress, sleep, environmental exposure and foods. Holistic BIE practitioners help clients manage all of these aspects to live symptom free.
Testing is done using a non-invasive, painless method called “muscle testing” where the body tells us whether it reacts or not to the specific item being tested.
We can test people of any age: infants, children, adults, the elderly and even animals.
Muscle testing is very accurate and can tell us much about the state of the body. Bio-energetic intolerance elimination (or BIE) is how we help the body to recognize the stressor and to no longer respond in an reactive manner. A painless electrical current is applied to various acupuncture points to allow the body to achieve homeostasis where it no longer views the stressor as such and the related symptoms are eliminated. Relief is experienced immediately, no needles, no drugs.
Many of these symptoms can be related to stressors:
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Arthritis
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Constipation/diarrhea
  • Gas/bloating
  • Depression/mood swings
  • Weight gain/inability to lose weight
  • Learning disabilities/memory loss
  • Many other symptoms that may not seem to be related
My friend of 20 plus years has seen me for treatment, and her symptoms are gone! The same friend who “couldn’t” have pets is now the proud owner of a Cocker Spaniel, and she loves him!
I’ve recently begun treating pets for their stressors, too. Often pets experience “hot spots”, skin rash/irritation, digestive upset/diarrhea and various other symptoms due to stressors. Our painless testing is done with the pet owner (we need your help) and we can uncover food reactions, as well as symptoms related to grasses, pollens, moulds and much more.
Your pet can’t talk, but BIE is a quick way to determine and eliminate their stressors as well. You don’t have to suffer and neither does your pet, let me know if I can help.
