The Zola Diet
This hCG diet is no longer available.
"'The Zola Diet' is no longer in existence. We have since rebranded and redeveloped the diet under the name, Plan Z by Zola. Our homeopathic formula does not contain hCG. We are not affiliated with Dr. Paul Branch." - a message from a Plan Z by Zola representative on 6/19/13.
The Zola Diet is an hCG combination diet that incorporates human chorionic gonadotropin hormone into its low-calorie meal and special homepathic remedy for weight loss.
Dr. Paul Branch has developed a proprietary homeopathic formula just for The Zola Diet called Dr. Branch’s ZReduction Formula . You squirt Dr. Branch’s ZReduction Formula under your tongue four times a day.The formula claims to works with your body to unlock the abnormal fat at a rate of 2500 – 4000 calories a day.
The homeopathic remedy contains a combination of cell energizers including human chorionic gonadatropin, hypothalamus energy, citric acid (same as in lemons) and L-Carnitine. Dr. Branch’s specific formula opens up your body’s fat burning stores and allows the abnormal fat to release. This process, along with a very specific calorie-restricted diet spread over four different phases will work to help you lose weight quickly.
According to The Zola Diet, a successful weight loss program must address five challenges:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Poor diet
- Energy loss
The Zola Diet not only addresses these challenges but it is also designed to reboot your metabolism so that you can lose weight and keep it off.
- Will result in weight loss
- No hCG injections needed
- Diet focuses on eating clean foods including tons of fresh vegetables and lean proteins
- Not a long-term solution for weight loss
- Using hCG to lose weight is very controversial and is linked to health risks
- Expense of Zola Diet may dissuade potential followers
- Has a fad-diet feel to it
The Zola Diet is a highly-structured and very low calorie diet plan that includes not just eating specific foods, and closely monitoring portions but also, using Dr. Branch’s ZReduction Formula homeopathic remedy four times a day.
There are four phases to The Zola Diet:
- ZBinge: ZBinge is the beginning of the diet and is two days long. During these two days you eat as much as you can. You eat all the fun, bad stuff! Ice cream, fried foods, pizza, whipped cream, desserts galore, breads, pastas, and more.
- ZReduction: How long this phase takes depends on how much you have to lose. If you have at least 26 pounds to lose this phase will last 40 days. If you have 25 pounds or less, this phase lasts 26 days.
During ZReduction you get to eat fresh food and healthy meals. Recipes are included on the website as are dining out guides. This portion of the diet is a high protein, low carbohydrate eating plan that is done to dip into fat stores for energy. You eat two meals a day during this phase and one small additional meal only if you need it. - ZReboot: This phase focuses on cycling the amount of carbohydrates and proteins you eat in order to reset your metabolism so that it becomes more efficient and effective at utilizing energy. ZLife: This is the maintenance portion of The Zola Diet that can be followed for an indefinite amount of time in order to sustain weight loss.
You will be able to access recipes for each of the phases of the diet. These recipes are easy to prepare, and range from comfort food to gourmet meals. The recipes are quick to cook. Almost all of them take less than 20 minutes to prepare. You can also share your recipes with other Zola Diet followers.EXERCISE

The Zola Diet is an hCG combination diet that combines the use of the hCG hormone with a low-calorie meal plan that is spread out among four different phases. The diet is designed to reboot your metabolism with its use of hCG liquid drops as well as its strict eating plan.

Plus, it has a pretty high price tag in comparison to other diets.Common Misspellings
