One of the basic principle that is extremely essential, and must not be disregarded even after doing the protocol, is Daily Weighing.
This should be continued when maintaining your weight so that you could immediately remedy any increase. It would be a mistake to rely on how your clothes fit you in determining whether or not you have gained weight because after going through a course of HCG, you could regain as much as 10 pounds without noticing any change on how your clothes fit. This is because newly acquired fat gets distributed evenly throughout the body and therefore will not cause any drastic visible changes.
So keep that habit of doing your daily weigh-ins to prevent those fats from creeping silently back in. =)
After three weeks of Phase 3 wherein you were allowed to increase your calorie intake and was given more freedom in food choices except sugars and starches, here comes Phase 4 wherein you start introducing more food without any restrictions. (You are, however, still advised to continue a habit of healthy eating.) This is the start of your MAINTENANCE PHASE.
During Phase 4, sugars and starches are now allowed. You should introduce this back to your diet gradually. As much as possible, start reintroducing foods one at a time. This way, you will be able to observe and determine if that specific food is a weight gain trigger for you. Different people have different food triggers so you will not be able to rely purely on their experiences for this Phase. It is essential that you do not skip this step because this would aid you in maintaining your weight long-term.
If a certain food that you reintroduced to your body causes you to feel bloated, gain weight, or crave for more, it would be wise to avoid that food or consume it infrequently.
Make wise decisions when choosing your food and always eat in moderation.
Best of luck in maintaining your loses!.. =)
When going on a diet, there are times that interruptions in our dieting cannot be totally avoided. Therefore, it is essential to know what to do when the circumstance arise.
If the need for an interruption will last for more than four days, you must increase your intake to at least 800 calories. This is done by adding meat, cheese, eggs and milk to your diet AFTER the THIRD DAY. If the interruption lasts less than two weeks, injections and the 500-calorie diet may be resumed directly. In the event that the interruption will last for two weeks of more, you must eat normally again until you’ve had your 3rd injection.
When you are scheduled to travel and you already know that you will not be able to stick with your diet for more than four days, you may stop your injections three days before you are scheduled to leave while still following the 500-calorie diet. After which, on the fourth day, during your travel, you will not have a hard time preparing your 500-calorie diet and thus have more freedom in choosing your meal.
Safe travels! =)
