For a quick reference: But Please at least scan the book, Pounds and Inches, the last tab on this website. The more you know the better you will do!
Phase 1 is LOADING. I trust we all know how to get that high-fat food in. 😉 But again, read more about this as well!
Phase 2, or P2, is the time during which one takes HCG and eats 500 calories per day from the list of approved foods.Watch the video if you are not sure what they are or go to the second tab. P2 should be a minimum of 23 days.
Phase 3, or P3, is the time after P2, where calories are increased, but NO SUGAR OR STARCH is consumed. Feel free to add in healthy fats, these are very satisfying. This phase is just as important as the low calorie phase and is 21 days, about 3 weeks.
Phase 4, or P4, is after P3, and is the time in which you can slowly introduce some starch and sugar back in, being careful to weigh daily to make sure you don’t have issues with the foods you reintroduce (causing you to gain).
On this site, I will be compiling the best recipes I have found on my hcg journey, for use by those doing hcg themselves, and also by anyone else interested in healthy, delicious recipes. They are sugar-free, many are gluten-free, low carb, and delicious. Half the time when I’m cooking my own food, my husband will ask me to make the same thing for them. In fact, I’m getting ready to make a birthday cake for tomorrow, which will be an amazing chocolate cake with chocolate icing, totally low carb, sugar-free and gluten-free. Perfect for P3/maintenance phase, Yum!
Even if you don’t need or aren’t interested in the HCG protocol, stick around because as I mentioned some of these recipes are great for Atkins or weight watchers, so you might get some ideas for yourself or want to share with a friend. 🙂
