P3 of the HCG Diet is one of the most important parts of the HCG diet. Understanding how to do this phase is the key to a lasting success.
But what exactly is Phase 3 of the HCG diet?
Phase 3 of the HCG diet is often known as the HCG maintenance phase of the diet. After you’ve successfully done the first 2 phases, whether you are doing the 46-day round or the 26-day round, you will have to go to the next phase which is the maintenance phase. The maintenance phase starts immediately after the hormone is out of your body, that’s about 3 days after your last dose of the HCG.
How to do the P3?
Since there will be no HCG left in your body, you must increase the amount of your food intake. You will start to increase your calorie consumption from the 500 calories a day to 1200 calories.
You may start reinforcing back varieties of food. However, you cannot do these too fast. Calories must be brought back in a way that will not shock your body or may lead you to gain weight.
From Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches, he explained that dieters can start consuming back a higher amount of any kinds of proteins, vegetables and fruits. But dieters have to be careful of the fruits with higher sugar content. Dieter can also consume other foods in the diet provided they are very low in carbs and in sugar. Here’s how you can do phase 3 of the HCG diet:
How important is Phase 3?
Phase 3 of the HCG diet is as important as the P1 and P2. This is where a lot of dieters don’t really understand how important this phase is. That’s why there are dieters who skip this phase and end up gaining more weight back. Phase 3 is so crucial in order to maintain your new weight. During this phase, you do not have to continue eating only 500 calories a day to maintain your new weight.
