Sample Phase 3 Maintenance Guides
To help you be successful on Maintenance or also known as Phase 3 of the HCG Diet System we have created some sample menus.
As you know… on Phase 3 you have a lot more freedom thanks Phase 2.
HCG Maintenance is six weeks long, and during the 1st 3 weeks of the HCG Phase 3 are NO sugars and starches.
