  • Here's A List Of HCG Phase 3 Foods To Help Guide You Through The Maintenance Phase:

    Phase 3 Food List | Food Groups
    I have said it before and I will say it again, HCG Phase 3 Stabilization and Maintenance is just as important if not more so than the weight loss phase of the HCG Diet Plan. Because if you can't keep the weight from coming back, then what good was losing it in the first place.


    Of coarse with this new phase you have a new set of rules, as well as a new food list. And although you will have a much longer HCG Food List for this phase, it can sometimes be harder for people to regulate what they eat and how often they are eating.


    The guidelines for the Stabilization Maintenance Phase simply gives you a basic idea of what you can and cannot eat. For the most part you have to decide what foods are okay and which are not. Unlike the 500 Calorie Diet that tells you specifically what foods are allowed and exactly how much you can have, right down to the gram -- I guess the saying is true, with more power comes more responsibilities.


    What HCG Phase 3 Foods are listed in the HCG Protocol?


    Well, that's kind of the problem, the HCG Diet Protocol doesn't really say what foods you can and can't eat. In fact, it really only gives you a few very vague guidelines.


    Weeks 1 through 3 of the Stabilization and Maintenance Phase:



    • No Sugars.
    • No Starches.
    • Eat only when you are hungry.
    • No need to count calories.

    Weeks 3 through 6 of Phase 3:



    • Slowly introduce sugars and starches into your diet.
    • Use good portion control.
    • Don't go back for seconds.
    • Eat whatever you want, whenever you get hungry.

    To some people the second half of the Maintenance phase might seem like a free for all, but it's not. There really are some more specific rules that you should follow. So I have put together an HCG Phase 3 Food List along with a few other tips to help you along.


    A Few HCG Maintenance Tips For Success:



    • Eat somewhere close to 1500 calories per day for the first 3 weeks.
    • Avoid eating out at restaurants (Especially Fast Food).
    • Eat real fruits and vegetables.
    • Eat organic foods when possible
    • Drink plenty of water.
    • Start doing Yoga or some other form of exercise. If you were already doing this things during Phase 2, simply increase your workout regimen.

    You can also add nuts and grains to your diet as well.


    Keep in mind that the foods listed above are not the only foods that you are allowed to have. But this should give you a good idea of what you should be eating. If you ask me, the list above is a dream come true compared to the HCG Phase 2 Food List.


    Remember though, you are coming off of a very restricted weight loss diet plan, so you will want to take it easy at first. This means adding foods into your diet and then watching how your body responds to it; especially the dairy.


    Also, you should stay away from artificial sweeteners at all costs, aside from Stevia and Truvia ... Yes that means no Diet Soda.


    Now, if you do find that you have gained 2 pounds over your Phase 2 ending weight, don't worry, it's totally normal to fluctuate. Simply do an HCG Steak Day and you should be fine.

    Honestly, there are many different reasons people put half of their weight back on during the Maintenance Phase. But if you are just willing to do what it takes and pay attention to what you put in your body, you won't be one of those people.

    What foods would you add to the Phase 3 Food List above?
