Phase 4 of the HCG Diet -The Maintenance Phase


HCG Phase 4 Begins Once:

The traditional view of the HCG Diet contains only 3 phases; however, we find it useful to think of a fourth stage, we'll call the Mainentance Phase.

HCG Diet Phase 4

The 4th Phase of the HCG Diet begins 6 weeks after the end of the HCG injections. This is immediatley after the 2nd stage of Phase 3.

Phase 4 of the HCG Diet never ends, it is a lifelong committment to a healthy lifestyle. Without such a perspective, the benefits achieved in the HCG Diet will be slowly erroded over time and the body will return to its previous state of obesity.

The HCG Diet will take off the weight, reset your metabolism and give you a second chance. However, it is certainly not a cure-all for a lifetime. You simply can't return to the bad eating habits that created the problem in the first place and expect the HCG diet to protect you indefinetely.

HCG Phase 4 reguires you to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and avoiding overindulging. This doesn't mean that everything eaten must be healthy - it simply means to keep everything in moderation and avoid overindulgence.

In HCG Phase 4, you will use a scale to keep your weight within 2 pounds of your weight on the date of your last HCG injection. If you weight increase by more than 2 pounds, you will have a "Steak Day." If it drops by more than 2 pounds, you will have a "Philly Steak Day."

Steak Day

If you have gained more than 2 pounds since your last HCG day, you will need to immedately have a "Steak Day." On a Steak Day, you should skip breakfast and lunch and drink plenty of water. For dinner, go to the butcher and buy yourself the biggest, fattest, most marbled cut of meat they have (you don't have to watch the fat now). If you're not sure which cut is best, ask your butcher. Take it home and sauté it in oil, butter, garlic, or whatever other seasoning you'd like. Relish every bite of the steak until you are full. Follow with an apple or  you can substitute a tomato if you prefer. Some have lost as much as 7 pounds of gained inflammation in just one day using this technique.

Double Philly Cheese Steak Day

If you lose more than 2 pounds since your last HCG day, you will need to immediately have a "Double Philly Cheese Steak Day." On a Double Philly Cheese Steak Day, you should eat a healthy breakfast, followed by a Philly Cheese Steak for both lunch and dinner. The extra calories consumed should quickly correct the weight loss to be within 2 pounds of your last HCG day. Your goal is to stabilize your weight, not to continue more during this phase.
