The 4 Phase Fat Elimination Protocol was conceived and developed around the principles of fat storage and fat metabolism. The Protocol uses your body's natural hormone known as hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) and real food to isolate and rid the cells of toxic, stubborn fat and reset your system to support you on your path to optimum health and vitality.
The Protocol also educates on the different types of fat that are used by the body, how and why it is stored and then how to safely and quickly eliminate it, restoring you to your natural weight..
Using the principles of fat storage and fat metabolism, the Protocol uses real food with hCG support drops to reduce the body's abnormal fat reserves (hips, thighs, tummy, cellulite etc) whilst maintaining its structural and reserve fats (the fat in your cheeks, heel pads and around your organs, and the fat that is converted to energy to maintain hormonal balance and mental clarity).
Not only does it help you with any stubborn stored fat, it will also change your body's reaction to Leptin - the master hormone for appetite, fat deposits, sugar cravings, fertility and metabolism. It is also a protocol to teach you what foods are causing inflammatory processes, which over a period of time, can cause an array of diseases that slowly creep up and cause years of ill health.
The Protocol has been divided into different sections to ensure that you have all the information you need to get the best results, are constantly supported and also limit ‘information overload’. Sometimes it is easy to become overwhelmed and get stuck, so what you will receive to begin with is the ‘practical diet’. This will include the instructions for each Phase with food lists, tracking resources and more.
While you are completing the practical side of the Protocol, you will also receive a variety of information to explain what is happening in your body so that you understand the changes you are experiencing and how this effects your food changes, thoughts, and energy. This is important information that you need to read to have the most success on the Protocol!
Throughout each Phase, the Changing Habits team will be on-hand to guide and support you as you educate yourself about the foods that work and don’t work, the right amount of fuel you need for your body and how to create a daily routine that is the foundation of your new self.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT about this Protocol is that it is educational - not only for the mind but also for your body – and that is where the magic happens. Throughout the process of the Protocol, your body will change its biochemistry as a result of the foods you are eating and with this your taste buds, cravings, satiety, wants, needs and love for different foods will change too.
The length of your 4 Phase Fat Elimination Protocol is completely up to you and should be designed based on the amount of weight you need to lose in each round.
The first 3 phases must last from a minimum of 18 days to a maximum of 48 days. Keeping this in mind, Cyndi always recommends a goal of 26 days for the first 3 phases on your first round and based on your energy, mood and results, you can then stretch it out to the maximum 48 day regime.
Note: it is also important to remember that the length of Phase 1 and 3 never vary - it is only the time you spend in Phase 2 that will increase.
PHASE 1 - Days 1 & 2
Eat as much as you want, focusing on adding good quality fat such as cream, butter, eggs, coconut oil, nuts, high fat meat and fish etc. This is so much fun!
PHASE 2 & 3 - Days 3 to 24
Eat fruit, salad, vegetable and meat (there is a vegetarian version) but in specific quantities. This is where you will begin to lose approximately 300gms on average a day - we've seen people lose 2 kg in 24 hours. The stored fat that is being released per day equals approximately 2500 calories of fat and nutrients that your body will use for energy and health. It is important to drink a lot of water to flush the fat cells.
PHASE 4 - Days 25 to 35
This is where you stop counting calories and you start adding foods to your diet again. This is where you will learn your greatest knowledge about the foods that make you healthy and the foods that cause inflammation and sickness. This is a very important phase that educates for a lifetime health and maintenance of weight. Done properly, this will help you forever maintain a perfect weight and an increase in energy and health.
The 4 Phase Fat Elimination Protocol is for people who have been doing the hard yards with their health, have changed their diet from a SAD (Standard Australian/American Diet) to a diet free from additives, flavourings and modified packaged foods and wanting to lose at least 5kg or more.
This is not an easy Protocol; it takes time, organisation and discipline, but if you are wanting to take your health to a level you didn’t know existed, then this Protocol will do it.
Please note we do NOT recommend this protocol for anyone who is breast feeding or pregnant! If you have an existing or previous eating disorder and/or digestive (gut) issues, we recommend that you contact our Nutritionists before commencing the 4 Phase Fat Elimination Protocol - firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07 5493 7135.

What is in the 4 Phase Fat Elimination Support Drops?
The homeopathic Support Drops formula is non steroidal and remains closed and of private dominion. However, dissected molecular components are used along with several vibrational remedy techniques in a sequential combination to establish the link with appropriate messaging frequencies. It is a complex process and the methodology will not be revealed nor the harmonics in the homaccord. Other ingredients include: l-carnitine, ornithine and arginine.
Can I do the Protocol with just the Drops?
No, you will need to purchase either the starter pack (drops + information) or the complete package which is what we recommend to those who have never done the protocol before (drops + Information + recommended supplements).
Do I have to purchase 2 complete packs if my partner/friend ?
Yes you can, although to save on costs you could just purchase 1x complete pack + an extra bottle of drops as you can share the recommended supplements but you will each need your own bottle of drops.
When should I start the Protocol?
With the exception of menstruating women, you can start your 4 Phase Fat Elimination Protocol whenever you want. Before starting it is important to read the tips and hints sections and to go shopping so that you are prepared mentally and physically. I would also suggest you have a buddy or share with your family what you are doing so you have support throughout the Protocol.
Menstruating women: for women who still menstruate regularly, it is best to start the Protocol the day after your period ends. If this is not possible it is ok to start at other times of the month as long as you are at least 10 days out from having your period. The important thing is to not have your period fall during Phase 1 or Phase 3, so plan accordingly!
*During menstruation NO drops are to be taken. Simply continue the diet without the support drops and resume taking the drops again as soon as your period is over. Also, note that weight loss may slow during your period.
I am pregnant, can I do the Protocol?
No, you naturally have HCG production through pregnancy.
I am breast feeding, can I do this Protocol?
No, it is best to wait until you are finished breastfeeding. However, we recommend either our 21 Step Reset Program if you are quite new to Changing Habits or our Hunter Gatherer Protocol if you have been following us for some time.
I am on various medications, can I do the Protocol?
The drops are homeopathic and they are not known to interfere with any medications. The foods are REAL foods and thus there is nothing within this protocol to cause any concerns.
I am diabetic, can I do the Protocol?
Yes, however if you are a diabetic I suggest you monitor your blood glucose very carefully, you will probably need to reduce your insulin, but be vigilant with blood glucose levels and alter as needed. I also suggest that you eat a protein in the morning, such as an egg and three egg whites cooked in an omelette or a piece of meat, chicken or fish 100gms only. We also strongly advise that you purchase the complete pack with the supreme green blend, colloidal minerals and probiotics as this will give you extra energy.
I am vegetarian, can I do the Protocol?
Yes you can but please be aware that your choices of foods will be limited. You will need to replace some of the proteins/meats with eggs, cottage cheese, protein powder (Inca Inchi) and tofu.
I am on Hormone Replacement Therapy, can I do the Protocol?
Yes, it is perfectly safe to do whilst on HRT.
I am on medication for a Thyroid Condition and in the original Dr Simeon's program he has a medication warning - can I do this Protocol?
Yes you can do this program. With the use of homeopathics not the drug therefore the thyroid medication warning in Dr Simeons book does not follow with how we do it. We added Dr Simeons work so you knew where this protocol came from but a lot has progressed since the 1950's. He used the actual drug. The homeopathics have no known drug interactions. Having said that I notice that some people who do have thyroid problems do struggle somewhat on this protocol, although others have great results. The leptin reset is amazing and that in turn helps your thyroid, although you may have some damage that cannot be repaired due to what you have been through
I am trying to lose weight and increase fertility - is the Protocol ok for women trying for children?
Yes, It will enhance health therefore increase chances. Make sure you start the protocol after your period.
I was wondering if the eating plan for the Protocol allows for gluten free and minimal dairy diet? Also what are the main foods required, as I live in a regional area and am not sure I will be able to access some food?
Whilst on the core and transition phase there is no dairy or gluten. It is all about fresh lean meat and lots of fresh vegetables and fruit. You purchase produce that is local and in season, nothing complicated.
I don't have a great deal of weight to lose, is this Protocol suitable?
The whole 4 Phase Fat Elimination Protocol is all about losing fat from fat cells in order to create health and wellbeing and harmony within the body with regards to hormones and all connected with it. The fat cells collectively act as an endocrine organ disrupting other processes in the body. A master hormone called Leptin controls the fine line that should be maintained between food in and food used and food stored. If you have very little fat and you have no weight to lose, do not do the protocol. Most people have too much fat surrounding their body in stored areas, this releases copious amounts of Leptin which in turn causes Leptin resistance and then everything goes hay wire. The more fat you have the more leptin in your blood the more resistance. Instead, if you want to to do something that is cleansing to the the body we suggest our Hunter Gatherer Protocol.
My work has a zero tolerance level of alcohol, and urine readings need to read 0. Can I take the 4 Phase Fat Elimination drops?
Our supplier has told us that there is such a small amount of ethanol and that the liver metabolises it so quickly it shows no affect. However, if you have concerns, put the drops onto a spoon, light a candle under the spoon (about 6 inches from the spoon) for a minute or two, and this will cause the ethanol to evaporate. If you are in a hot climate, then you can even let the drops sit on the spoon for approximately 2 minutes and the ethanol will evaporate this way.
