The 3-Day Stall on the HCG Diet

HCG Injections

If you’re following the HCG diet, you’ve probably heard about the infamous 3-day stall. It’s a common phenomenon where your weight loss seems to come to a grinding halt for a few days, even if you’re still strictly adhering to the diet. But before you get discouraged, let’s take a closer look at the 3-day stall and what it means for your weight loss journey.

What is the 3-Day HCG Diet Stall?

The 3-day stall refers to a temporary halt in weight loss lasting for 3 to 6 days straight in a row. Despite following the diet program, the weight on the scale remains constant or even increases slightly throughout this time.

The HCG Diet stall normally happens during the second week into your very low-calorie diet or phase 2. It typically happens after an initial period of rapid weight loss in the first few weeks of the diet. 

Will I Lose Weight Again?

Here’s the good news.

Since the 3-day stall is just temporary, most people who experience a 3-day stall will start losing weight again within a few days. 

Instead of feeling down, think of the stall as a short break before your weight loss journey resumes.

Another positive aspect of the 3-day stall is that it can be a great opportunity to reassess your diet and make sure you’re following it correctly. Ask these questions:

·      Are you drinking enough water? 

·      Are you measuring your portions accurately? 

·      Are you avoiding all sugars and starches? 

Reviewing your diet during the stall can help pinpoint any slip-ups and make necessary adjustments.

Additionally, the 3-day stall can be a good reminder to focus on other aspects of your health beyond just the number on the scale. Ask these questions:

·      Are you getting enough sleep? 

·      Are you managing stress effectively? 

·      Are you incorporating movement and exercise into your daily routine? 

All these can have a big impact on your overall health and well-being.

Finally, keep in mind that weight loss doesn’t always happen steadily. There will be ups and downs. There will be plateaus and bursts of progress. 

The 3-day stall is just one of those ups and downs. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re doing anything wrong or that the diet isn’t working. 

Key Takeaways

The 3-day stall on the HCG diet can feel frustrating, but it’s a normal part of losing weight. Use it as a chance to check your diet, focus on your health, and stay patient. Keep pushing forward, believe in yourself, and progress will happen!
