The Importance of Phase 3 on the HCG Diet
|August 4, 2013|
HCG Diet Phase 3 Stabilization Phase Summary
Start Phase 3 of the HCG Diet SLOWLY!This cannot be stressed enough. After the HCG phase, do not fall into this trap of wanting to devour food. Start your P3 very slowly – the recommendation for the first couple of days is to concentrate on P2 foods, just double the protein, mix your veggies and add minimal fats (keep the recommended 2 fruits a day but add variety).Track Your Progress. Data is very important. Keeping a food journal is essential to maintaining your weight loss. This will not be forever. We highly recommend you at least keep a basic food diary of what you eat in a given day, along with your weight, the change from the previous day and how you're feeling in a few short words for a few weeks. Believe me when I say this will be invaluable to your success. You will learn what effects some foods have on your weight and the way that you feel. Take Action Immediately! As soon as you gain 2 pounds over your LIW, take care of it. Procrastination is your ENEMY. Diligence is your FRIEND. It is what Dr. Simeons advocated and he was right. Look into the different ways of doing “Correction Days”.
HCG Diet Steak DayA steak day is something you can do to get your body back to its final weight when you were on phase 2, or the 500 calorie a day portion of the diet.
A Note on Alcohol- Most alcoholic beverages have a very high sugar content. During HCG Diet phase 3 you will want to avoid those beverages. If it has less than 5 grams of sugar per serving, try it. We do encourage you to watch your weight carefully, and if you see a gain you should probably refrain from that alcoholic beverage until you are done with the maintenance phase.
