Common Diet Problems During the Maintenance Phase of the HCG Diet

Many find diet maintenance to be so easy but not with the HCG Diet. Unlike other diets, excluding sugar and carbohydrates from the diet is a real-life challenge. Gaining the weight back after losing them seems unimaginable.

Here are the most common problems dieters encounter when on the maintenance phase of the HCG Diet:

  1. The problem: Gaining the weight back

After losing all those pounds and inches you suddenly feel that your body has changed. Now, you have the right to eat whatever you want only to find out the next morning you have regained the weight you’ve lost, worst added more pounds. When this happens, you feel ashamed, frustrated, and powerless. Probably, ready to throw up your hands in defeat.

How to fix: Don’t be so reluctant to going back consuming a whole box of cookies. Instead, continue eating the same type of foods that have helped you shed pounds.  I am not saying that you should go back eating the 500 calorie diet. You need to determine how many calories you need each day based on your current weight, age and sex. Remember that the Maintenance phase is not a weight loss phase. If you try to keep eating the 500 calories a day without the hormone, your body will think that it is in the starvation mode and will start to store fat again and burn muscles for energy. Eat foods that are healthy, tasty and not bland and boring.  

  • The problem: Eating starches and sugars

Consuming starches and sugars will definitely sabotage your success during P3 and you wouldn’t want to gain all the weight back, do you?

How to fix: Avoid overly starchy veggies and fruits like potato and banana. Stay away from pre-packaged foods because most of them contain added sugars. Avoid eating ultra-sweet fruits like melon and mangoes. Be mindful of what’s in the food you are eating too.

  • The problem: Not addressing hunger pains during the P2

Hunger pains during P2 likely happen due to many reasons. Perhaps you are not following the hcg protocol to the letter, maybe you are not using the right dose or you have used up all the stored fat.

How to fix: You can increase your calorie intake from 500 calorie to 800 calorie if you think the reason why you are hungry is that you have lost all the weight you need to lose.

  • The Problem: Cheating

Phase 3 is still part of the diet and cheating can happen to the best of us.

How to fix: The first thing that you need to do is to forgive yourself and don’t cheat anymore. You have a lot of food choices and a bigger amount of foods but do not overdo.

Statement from the FDA : “HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or ‘normal’ distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
