Reduces Stress

Over time, stress can leave the adrenal gland exhausted by constantly producing adrenaline and CORTISOL. Licorice supplements can give the ADRENAL GLAND some relief. Licorice root extract can stimulate the adrenal gland, which promotes a “healthy level of cortisol in the body. “

Why does cortisol increase Weight Gain

Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Whenever you experience something your body perceives as a threat, like a large dog barking at you, a chemical known as adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is released in your brain. This triggers your adrenal glands to release cortisol and adrenaline.

Cortisol is the main hormone involved in stress and the fight-or-flight response. This is a natural and protective response to a perceived threat or danger. Increased levels of cortisol result in a burst of new energy and strength.

In the fight-or-flight response, cortisol suppresses any functions that are unnecessary or detrimental to that response. During a fight-or-flight response, you can have:

  • a rapid heart rate
  • dry mouth
  • stomach upset
  • diarrhea
  • panic

Cortisol release also:

  • suppresses your growth processes
  • suppresses your digestive system
  • suppresses your reproductive system
  • changes how your immune system responds

Phase 2 hCG Blueberry Vanilla Frozen Yoghurt

INGREDIENTS1 cup Blueberries fresh or frozen1 1/2 cups 
Greek yogurt fat-free – AP
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
5 scoops powdered stevia  (1/32 tsp per 1 scoop)


  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor or a blender and mix until smooth
  2. Pour into a bowl or pan and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  3. Scoop and serve, or re-blend frozen chunks in a vitamix for a nice soft-serve thing.


Any berries can easily be substituted in this recipe, use a mix of berries for a new type of yogurt. Peach blueberry also works well!

Once frozen, scoop the yogurt back into the food processor and pulse two or three times to give it a nice soft texture.

Scoop the frozen yogurt into a blender and add 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk for a great smoothie!

You can also freeze these in ice-cube trays and add them to the blender with some water if they are still fully frozen at the time you want to serve and eat them.

Here we balance the mildly grassy flavor and slightly astringent mouthfeel of green tea with honey and lemon. Oversteeped green tea can be bitter, so don’t brew it any longer than 3 minutes. And be sure to steep in simmering water: water that looks like it’s steaming, with little bubbles, but not boiling.


  • 1/4 cup loose green jasmine tea, or 12 green jasmine tea bags
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, plus more whole sprigs for garnish
  • 4 cups simmering water
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 4 cups cold water


  1. Steep loose tea (or tea bags) and mint leaves in simmering (not boiling) water for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Strain the tea (or remove tea bags and mint leaves) and pour into a large pitcher. Stir in lemon juice and honey until the honey is dissolved. Add cold water. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Serve over ice with mint sprigs, if desired.

hCG Phase3 &,4 Low Carb Cauliflower Hummus Recipe

I have been missing hummus in a major way lately, and finally got around to trying this experiment with cauliflower to stand in for the chickpeas.  I noticed recently that my low carb cauliflower puree has the consistency of hummus when cold, and thought if I added just the right ingredients I could mask the cauliflower flavor enough to convince people that it was the real thing.

  • 3 cups raw cauliflower florets
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 whole garlic cloves
  • 1.5 Tbsp Tahini paste
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 raw garlic cloves, crushed (in addition to above)
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • smoked paprika and extra olive oil for serving
  1. Combine the cauliflower, water, 2 Tbsp avocado or olive oil, ½ tsp kosher salt, and 3 whole garlic cloves to a microwave safe dish. Microwave for about 15 minutes – or until softened and darkened in color.
  2. Put the cauliflower mixture into a magic bullet, blender, or food processor and blend. Add the tahini paste, lemon juice, 2 raw garlic cloves, 3 Tbsp olive oil, and ¾ tsp kosher salt. Blend until mostly smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.
  3. To serve, place the hummus in a bowl and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika. Use thinly sliced tart apples, celery sticks, raw radish chips, or other vegges to dip with.
