HCG Phase 3

HCG Phase 1  •  HCG Phase 2  •  HCG Phase 3  •  HCG Phase 4


Phase 3 of the HCG Diet -The Stabilization Phase (3 Wks)

HCG Phase 3 Begins Once:

1) The ideal weight is achieved, or
2) After the 23rd or 40th day cycle is complete, or
3) Once the body has become resistant to the effects of HCG.

HCG Phase 3 is also known as the Stabilization Phase and usually begins 72 hours after the last injection. For example, if the last HCG injection occurred at 7:00 a.m. on a Monday, Phase 3 would begin at 7:00 a.m. on Thursday. The HCG Phase 2 Diet is followed until the 72 hour period has been completed.

There are conditions that would end the HCG Phase 2 earlier than the typical cycle. Some dieters achieve their ideal weight in less time and do not need to continue. In fact, once the body reaches its ideal weight, HCG becomes ineffective for additional weightloss.

HCG Phase 3

Additionally, after about 40 days, the body adjusts to the daily injections of HCG and the cycle should be ended. This is what makes the last 7 days of Phase 2 is so important. The key signals are hunger and difficulty losing further weight. As the body becomes resistant to HCG, hunger returns and the cycle should be ended.


The diet is much less restrictive in Phase 3 of the HCG Diet and is determined by your daily weight. It is CRITICAL that you weigh yourself EVERY day - even when traveling. Your weight should be taken at the very begining of your day, after using the restroom, and should remain within 2 pounds of your weight on the day of your last HCG injection (this creates a 4 pound range of 2 pounds above and below this key weight).

HCG Phase 3 Eating Plan:

Phase 3 of the HCG Diet can be divided into 2 stages:

Stage 1: Weeks 1-3
Stage 2: Weeks 4-6

HCG Phase 3 weeks 1-3

In the first 3 weeks of HCG Phase 3, you may eat anything you'd like except starches and sugars, but the amount that is eaten is controlled by your morning wieght.

The bodyweight should become stable and should not have dramatic swings upward after an occasional intake of excess calories. Accoridng to Dr. Simeon, "If no carbohydrates whatsoever are eaten, fats can be indulged in somewhat more liberally and even small quantities of alcohol, such as a glass of wine with meals, does no harm, but as soon as fats and starch are combined things are very liable to get out of hand. This has to be observed very carefully during the first 3 weeks after the treatment is ended otherwise disappointments are almost sure to occur." This is critical in HCG Phase 3.

HCG Diet Phase 3

It is important to eat an adequate amount of protein and enough food in HCG Phase 3. A good rule of thumb, is to double your intake of protein and triple the amount of calories. Instead of 2 servings of 3.5 oz. of protein (100g), you would have 2 servings of 7 oz. (200g), with a daily target of about 1,500 calories. These numbers would be adjusted based upon your hunger and daily weigh-in to maintain your weight in the 4 pound target range.

If your weight goes up 2 or more pounds, you must immediately have a Steak Day. If it goes down more than 2 pounds, you must have a double Philly Steak Day.

Restaurants in HCG Phase 3
Most restaurants use large amounts of sugar, fats and other unhealthy ingredients like MSG to improve the flavor of their foods, whcih are not allowed in HCG Phase 3. Be careful of the frequency you eat out, as well as the portion sizes which seem to grow each year.
