Stabilise HCG weight loss

Stabilise HCG weight loss

Re-introducing foods, adding new foods, and increasing your food in-take

We learned from our experience that the importance of this stage cannot be underestimated. Stabalise HCG weight loss is your prime concern after loosing that weight.

This is a very important part of the diet as this is your stabilisation phase to keep the weight off,
maintain, and educate yourself to a healthy lifetime eating plan. Just as an extra bonus, you
may find you will lose a little more weight over the first few weeks.

From a psychological point of view this is the hardest stage for most people. After the success
of the diet (which I rate “high”) we are now eager to eat more, eat better, drink alcohol and
socialize. For some people, the red light turns green to allow the return to the old habits.
Other people are afraid to eat and continue to starve themselves until the primal instincts
take over and they start binging.

It is my personal experience as a HCG dieter an as a Diet4Shape practitioner that this is the
stage that “makes it or breaks it”.

The Introduction Phase works by allowing you to begin introducing other foods that you were
not able to eat whilst on your 500 calorie daily in-take.

What to Recommend: 

  • Plan your stage 3 the same way as stage 2
  • Plan a 3 weeks menu; I would suggest: daily calories ,
    daily protein, daily carbohydrates, daily fats with a calorie
    intake of 1200 calories a day for women and 1500 calories
    for men
  • Write a shopping list and store the appropriate foods
  • Prepare meals and portions
  • Prepare snacks
  • Write and display lists of foods allowed and foods not allowed
  • Eat small portions, chewing well and enjoying every mouthful
  • Re-introduce foods gradually, one category at a time and watch
    for adverse symptoms.
  • This may indicate food allergies or
    intolerances that deserve further investigations.
  • Increase your daily Protein foods from 200 grams daily to 400
    grams.
  • Keep weighing yourself daily to monitor your weight.
  • This Phase is very different for everybody due to our individuality – the impact
    of the foods introduced will be different in all cases as no two bodies are exactly
    alike. Make sure you have some fun with this phase and remember you are on a
    healthier eating plan now, so you will still need to be mindful of harmful foods
    such as added sugars, refined carbohydrates, and unhealthy, saturated fats.Daily recommendations during this stage:

    • In General a total calories count of 1200 for women and 1500 for men
    • This should be broken down into 3 meals and 2 snacks
    • 400 grams of lean protein
    • 2 to 3 servings of vegetables
    • 2 to 3 servings of fruit
    • 2 servings of Low carbohydrate and sugar free dairy
    • 300 grams of Grains/Starches of which at least 50% are to come from
      whole grains
    • 2- 3 servings of good quality fats which can be used in cooking preparation
    • Alcohol can be introduced but needs to be kept to a minimum
