The HCG Maintenance Phase


Maintenance/Stabilization Phase

The maintenance phase (or phase 3) is the period after you finish your hcg drops or hcg injections.

Dr. Simeons outlines a few rules here:
You must weigh yourself every day
You must remain within 2 pounds of your last injection weight (over or under) and,
You cannot eat sugars and starches (which is carbohydrates minus the fiber)

It is extremely important to eat plenty of protein during this period, a lot of people can eat at least 100 grams of true protein (about 400 grams of actual meat weighed raw). If you go over the 2 pounds, you must do a steak day immediately. When you start the maintenance/stabilization process, increase your calories to at least 1500 calories per day.

Don’t try to continue the 800 calorie diet after the hCG is out of your system, because you will become weak and tired, and your body will begin to go into ‘shutdown’ mode where it doesn’t burn calories. This will completely ruin your Phase 2, and you’ll have to start all over. Don’t worry, your weight will go up and down a bit the first week or two; this is normal.

Use healthy fats and dairy products to up your calorie intake if necessary. Drink enough water. Get your sleep.
