This is in the time that you will slowly add food portions to your meal. This is phase 3 of the HCG diet. Do not do everything so fast. In adding the foods to your meal, you have to do it slowly. It is important to give the body a chance to process foods. Allow the digestion and metabolism to adjust slowly from the VLCD. Phase 3 is weight stabilization. This is the toughest part of the HCG diet. You will possibly encounter some situations that may cause you to gain weight. However, you have to get through it so that you can go to the next phase. Be familiar with the common difficulties a dieter usually encounters. This will help you determine and plan for a possible solution when it comes.
In Phase 3 of the HCG diet, you will start to add more calories to your meal. There are cases that you will struggle in having 700 to 800 calories a day. This is because your body is already getting used to the VLCD. However, adding more calories is important to succeed in the stabilization. You may feel bloated or stuffed, but then this is just normal. Consume the required amount of calories that are needed for the day. This will allow continuing to go through the success of the HCG diet.
Overwhelming that causes eating too much
Be careful of the overwhelmed feelings it may add unwanted weight. This part of the diet may seem so overwhelming that may cause you to eat as much food as you want. Remember that this is not Phase 1 or the loading phase. The purpose of phase 3 is to stabilize the weight and not gorging. Your goal in this part is to maintain weight loss. Overeating will cause sudden weight gain. If this happens, your choice is to do the steak or apple a day as soon as possible. This will help you take back the weight loss goal. Follow the diet instructions and guidance in overcoming difficulties.
