If you are on the MediLean diet plan, you have to be very careful about your cosmetic selections and the use of beauty products. Certain lotions, ointments and oils can actually cause you problems when you are trying to get rid of excess fat. Dr. Simeons clearly stated “fats, oils, creams and ointments applied to the skin are absorbed and interfere with weight reduction by hCG just as if they had been eaten.” While such products may do wonders for the appearance of your skin, it can counteract the efforts you are making through HCG diet. Using oil free skin & hair care products is an important part of the MediLean program to avoid weight gain by the absorption of the body. You can find the protocol on pages 5 & 6 of your guidebook. If you're not sure about something bring the product in and discuss it with your nutritional counselor, or ask her where you can buy the list of approved products.
