12 Reasons People Gain Weight During Phase 3 Maintenance

Are You Gaining Weight During The HCG Maintenance Phase And Want To Know Why?

Weighing SelfAfter completing an entire round of the HCG 500 Calorie Diet with HCG Shots, Pellets or Drops, you will start Phase 3, which is also known as Maintenance.

The Maintenance Phase was specifically designed to help you Stabilize and Maintain your new lower weight. If you did Phase 2 correctly, Maintenance should be fairly easy.

However, if you ran into some problems or found it hard to stick to the HCG Protocol, Phase 3 might be a bit more difficult. But be that as it may, most people will still be able to successfully stabilize and maintain during this phase despite any problems they experienced during the VLCD.

The most difficult situation to try and deal with is when you continuously gain more than the 2 pound limit during Maintenance, especially when you don't understand why.

12 Reasons You May Be Gaining Weight During Phase 3 Maintenance:

  1. Eating Sugars and Starches during the first 3 weeks of Maintenance.
  2. Using artificial sweeteners other than Stevia or Truvia.
  3. Eating out at fast food restaurants.
  4. Trans Fats.
  5. Not drinking enough water.
  6. Skipping Breakfast.
  7. Eating right before you go to bed.
  8. Portions are too big.
  9. Drinking Diet Soda.
  10. Having seconds with every meal.
  11. Cheating on your HCG Steak Day.
  12. You didn't do Phase 2 correctly

Now these are just some of the reasons for why you haven't been able to properly stabilize your weight during Phase 3 - Of coarse it could be something different altogether.

12 Things You Should Do To Help Stabilize Your Weight During The Maintenance Phase:

  1. Drink at least 1/2 Gallon of water everyday.
  2. Take daily walks.
  3. Exercise often.
  4. Get plenty of sleep.
  5. Eat breakfast everyday.
  6. Take a good Multi-Vitamin.
  7. Eat 1 to 2 Apples daily.
  8. Eat Grapefruit often.
  9. Eat organic foods.
  10. Drink Green Tea.
  11. Eat plenty of fiber.
  12. Use good portion control.

Up until this point you have been in weight loss mode. Now it's time to make sure that you don't start going back to the old habits that led you to need the HCG Diet Plan in the first place.

5 Tips For HCG Maintenance To Help You Change Your Old Behaviors:

  1. Don't eat in bed.
  2. Don't eat in front of the TV.
  3. Sit down at the table and relax during meals.
  4. Thoroughly chew your food.
  5. Make sure you are only eating when you are hungry and not just bored.

Of coarse you want to make sure that you are utilizing the HCG Steak Day if you do happen to gain more than 2 pounds over your ending weight as of the last day of taking the HCG Drops, Pellets or Injections.

Another Useful Tip For Phase 3:

Throughout the 500 Calorie Diet you are strongly encouraged to keep an HCG Journal for various different reasons ... To track your weight loss, your weight gains, what you are eating, if and when you cheat ... But why not keep a journal for Phase 3 as well.

Keeping a Phase 3 journal could be helpful if you are having a difficult time stabilizing and maintaining your new weight - That way you would be able to go back and possibly find out what is causing your issue.

And if you find yourself getting discouraged, just try to remember that everyone is different, just because some things work well for one person doesn't mean they will necessarily work the same for you. So pay attention to your body and do what you feel is going be best for you as an individual.
