Phase 3 of the HCG Diet

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

How to Transition into Phase 3 of the HCG Diet

 

  Phase 3 is a MAJOR part of the HCG Diet. This is the phase that will solidify your weight loss.
Here are a few things to remember during Phase 3 Week 1:
-Double the servings you ate in Phase 2
-Cut out Melba Toast, it’s not allowed in Phase 3
-NO DAIRY..yet
-Only add in a couple of fruits and veggies during this week
-Start exercising
-Aim for 950-1000 calories
-You can start adding regular cosmetics back into your routine
-Continue to drink 1/2 gallon – 1 gallon of water
-Keep a detailed food journal
-Avoid Carbohydrates unless they are coming from fresh fruit

I constantly get questions about Phase 3 from anxious HCG Dieters. Understandably, people are nervous to start adding in more calories after being restricted for so long. Today I want to provide you with a very basic, but thorough Phase 3 outline. These are my recommendations based upon my experiences. Sometimes what works for me may not work for you, but hopefully you’ll find the guidance I give helpful.

I get it, you’ve been eating hardly anything for 26 days or more. You’re excited to have more variety. Take a breath and slow yourself down. I’m not trying to burst any bubbles here, but your Week 1 on Phase 3 is going to be pretty similar to Phase 2.

Week 1 Phase 3 Sample Menu:
Breakfast: 2 boiled eggs – 140 calories
Snack: Apple – 85 calories
Lunch: 6 oz Chicken – 256, 1/2 c. cherry tomatoes – 45, 2 c. lettuce – 10, Pace salsa – 35
Snack: 1 scoop Triumph Slim – 80, 1 cucumber – 45
Dinner: 6 oz shrimp – 168, 1/2 c. broccoli – 30
Snack: 1/2 c. raspberries w/ Trulicious – 32
Total Calories: 926

You’ll notice that the only additions were extra servings of food, broccoli, and raspberries. It’s pretty straight forward. You’ll also notice that there isn’t Melba Toast added or diary. Now I know that this is rough because it isn’t the added variety you were hoping for, but trust me when I say you don’t want to rush into adding too many foods too quickly.

Moving on to Week 2 of Phase 3, you can try adding in a couple of dairy items and some more veggie options.

Things to remember for Week 2 Phase 3:
-Continue to keep a detailed food journal
-Don’t purchase low-fat dairy products, they may have less calories, but they usually have more carbs
-Add dairy in one serving at a time
-Continue to drink 1/2 gallon – 1 gallon of water
-Aim for 1000-1100 calories
-Continue exercising

Week 2 Phase 3 Sample Menu:
Breakfast: Apple – 85 calories, Boiled egg – 70
Snack: 2 thin slices of Swiss cheese – 140
Lunch: 6 oz lean beef – 411, broccoli – 30
Snack: Triumph Slim – 80
Dinner: 6 oz chicken – 256, 2 c. lettuce, 1/2 c. – 10, cherry tomatoes – 45
Snack: 6 strawberries – 45
Total Calories: 1,127

Once again, you’ll notice that the addition was minimal. If your body responds well to this change you can slowly start to add a bit more.

As you progress toward Week 3 of Phase 3 you can start adding in various healthy fats like avocado and yogurt.

Here are some things to remember for Week 3 Phase 3:
-Continue to keep a detailed food journal
-Don’t purchase products that are low-fat
-Add healthy fats in one at a time
-Continue to drink 1/2 gallon – 1 gallon of water
-Aim for 1100-1200 calories
-Continue exercising

Week 3 Phase 3 Sample Menu:
Breakfast: Greek yogurt w/ stevia – 146,
Snack: Apple – 85, 2 thing slices of Swiss cheese – 140
Lunch: 6 oz chicken – 256, 1 cucumber – 45, 1/2 avocado – 161
Snack: 1 scoop Triumph Slim – 80
Dinner: 6 oz shrimp – 168, zucchini – 120
Snack: orange – 70
Total Calories: 1271

So by this point you’ve made it to Week 4 of Phase 3. Your body should be stabilizing. You should be learning the foods you can and can’t eat, and hopefully you’ve developed some good exercise habits.

Here are some things to remember for Week 4 Phase 3:
-Continue to keep a detailed food journal
-Experiment with condiments, just make sure there isn’t added sugar
-You can start testing other fatty, healthy foods like peanut butter, squash, nuts, ect.
-Continue drinking 1/2 gallon – 1 gallon of water
-Aim for 1200-1300 calories
-Continue exercising

Week 4 Phase 3 Sample Menu:
Breakfast: Plain Greek yogurt w/stevia – 146, raspberries – 32, poached egg – 70
Snack: 2 thin slices of Swiss cheese – 140, 1/2 c. Cherry tomatoes – 45
Lunch: Chef salad w/ ranch – 502
Snack: Triumph Slim – 80
Dinner: 6 oz beef – 411, grilled peppers & onions – 62
Snack: Cottage cheese – 161, avocado – 81
Total Calories: 1360

Phase 2 to losing weight on HCG diet.

7 days of food for Phase 2 on HCG diet

 

” I spend a lot of time at work; the last thing I want to do is think about what I’m taking for lunch. But let’s face it, while on the HCG diet you have to be aware of everything you eat. Now, I know I’m not the only one out there on the HCG diet who works. In fact, we constantly see people on Facebook asking for a more detailed meal plan so they can prepare food the night before.

Well, HCG Triumph hasn’t released an official Phase 2 weekly meal plan yet, but I have my own that I’d be more than happy to share. Below is an image of the actual document (click to make it bigger!). Feel free to e-mail me at Lowery@hcgdiet.com for a downloadable PDF Losing Weight version.

I’m not very creative with my meals. I like food that’s easy to grab as I’m headed out the door. You’ll notice that I also have broccoli on my menu. This is listed under the additional vegetables section on page 10 of the HCG Triumph Guide Book. It has never made me gain, and I prefer it over asparagus. If it doesn’t work for you, substitute it for something else! I also put tomato on my lettuce or spinach with no problems. The recipe for spinach chips can be found here, and the recipe for phase 2 chili can be found here. Hope this helps some of you out!

Menu_ for_Losing _Weight

I’ve lost 22 lbs. This has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It’s so worth it though. Every liter of water, every bad day that goes untreated with chocolate is more weight gone and more confidence in myself. I’m staying positive, eating healthy, and getting closer to my goal weight! ”

Concrete Fitness Innovation of the Year –

Fuel Band 2013

Tomas Donovan about 2013 Fitness gadgets

With thousands of social problems, concrete 2013 social innovations have become the need of our society in order to keep it in the right tone of a perfect living. We all are very well aware that whether it is the Americas, the African region or the Asian, obesity is the issue that is growing throughout the globe. Thus my vote for the concrete innovation of the year goes to the best innovation made to solve the fitness issue; the Nike+ FuelBand 2013 SE.

There are very less technology firms concentrating towards social innovations but Nike proved that not only it can invent the best sportswear but it can force the lazy people into putting them on and start running! Literally the fuel band has the power of convincing the laziest people into adding ‘energy’ and ‘activity’ to their lifestyles.How?The question remains, how does the amazing FuelBand Fitness gadget do it? Since today, people are into Facebook or twitter more than in their track suits it is necessary to give them a related attraction.

This innovation actually allows them to link their daily activity (in form of Nike points) with their social media sites to motivate them.</p><p>The device calculates calories burnt and steps taken, converts it into Nike points and allows the users to boast them on the social network. Also they have created an online community where people with these devices keep updating their profile with the points they earn. This creates a friendly rivalry among the users giving them a mental push to reach the goals they set themselves.

Moreover, those who tend to use phones more than computers may download the application that connects the FuelBand gadget for fitness  with a smart phone via Bluetooth or USB. Not only then the users can compare their data with that of their friends but also keep themselves updated with their physical activity.

Scientific Aspects: According to a study it is proven that with competition and guilt can a person is motivated ten times more to reach goals than without them. This is where this handy device does its trick! It keeps the guilt alive when at the end of the day a user compares his results with his friends’ stats.

Such a social innovation can revolutionize the concept of fitness by making the results socially visible and adding the affect of competition to it. It is better to run with a push of victory than to run for no reason isn’t it?
Another study shows that if a person has negativity monitored with concrete figures he is more likely to fix it than without them. If a person gets an omnipresent monitor of his excessive use of electricity he will cater it to see the green light on that monitor; that is exactly what this device does but with the subject being ‘activity’.

All in all, with such innovations we are motivated to fix the issues and adapt self-improvement. Definitely such modernizations are needed in our society so that we may enhance our lives to the best extent. Do you vote it as the concrete innovation of the 2013year concrete 2013 innovation, check this web-site to learn more about concrete innovation.
