Here is everything that you need to know about the first week of the HCG Diet phase 3. Keep in mind that your official HCG Diet Phase 3 starts three days after your last injection.
Your Day One: Double the amount of your meat intake from what you use to consume during the P2. Your goal is to consume about 700 calories per day. Do not start doing Phase 3 without doing the transition period. You can only begin with the P3 if you finish the three-day transition period.
Your Day Two: After doubling up the amount of protein intake, you will start to add some vegetables to your food intake. You may begin to introduce new vegetables like zucchini and Brussels. Try adding new meats too like turkey. Remember to count your calories and weigh yourself each day.
Your Day Three: During your third day, continue doing what you’ve been doing during your first and second day. You can now start introducing back fruits into your diet.
Your Day Four: Increase your calorie intake by 500 calories. One way to do this is to introduce back dairy to your diet. You can have yogurt or white cheese and sweetened it with fruits and stevia. However, add only one type of dairy at a time and see if it affects your weight.
Your Day Five: If you didn’t notice any weight gain after adding dairy into your diet, go ahead and adds another kind of meat or perhaps a few more dairy. At this point also, you may start incorporating exercise into your daily routine. Exercise will help your metabolism adjust to your new weight.
Your Day Six: You may continue experimenting with meats, veggies and dairy together. However, do not forget to add new foods one at a time only.
Your Seven Day: Take note of any changes in your weight and the foods that you are eating. If a particular food causes you to gain some weight then try to avoid that food. During this day, your calorie intake should be at 900 calories per day. Make sure that you will follow the “2 Pounds rule” of the P3. Your weight must be no higher than the 2 pounds from your end weight during Phase 2 of the HCG diet.
Phase 3 of the HCG Diet is so crucial that you must NOT skip. Your first couple of days must be hard but you need to do your best and follow the 2 pounds rule. If you will gain more than 2 pounds then do the Steak day. During your last 2 weeks, you will continue to increase your calorie intake gradually adding more foods until you reach 1200-1500 calories a day.
