Transition Phase of the HCG Diet

Now you are about to end your journey with the VLCD of the HCG diet and you are about to get yourself into the heavenly Phase 3 of the HCG diet. But wait! Before you to go the heavenly Phase 3 you need past through the transition period first.

What is the TRANSITION period from Phase 2 to Phase 3 of the HCG diet?

The transition period is the 72 hour period during your diet with HCG where you stop taking the HCG but you still continue with your 500 calorie intake a day. The transition period lasts for 72 hours. The 72 hours starts right away following your last dose of the hormone.

Don’t get mixed up. Your last dose of the hormone is included in the 72 hour period and not for 3 days after your last injection. If your last dose is Friday then Phase 3 of the HCG diet starts on Monday. If your last dose is Sunday, then your P3 starts on Wednesday.

The Transition period is very important because this makes sure that all traces of HCG are out of your system before you will reintroduce back a large portion of foods.

Why continue with the 500 calorie diet during the Transition period?

It takes about 72 hours for the hormones to leave the body thus making you more susceptible to losing or gaining fat. When you take in more calories even if there are still traces of HCG in your body, you could gain weight. Now as the 72 hours period comes to an end, you might get hungrier and hungrier. Now what to do about it?

How to do EAT properly during the Transition period?

Your first 24 hours following the very low calorie diet would be just like the other very low calorie diet days. But as the last 24 hours unfold, you will feel symptoms of TRUE hunger. You can do the following:

  • Add more calories towards the tail end of the transition period. You can add about 200-500 calories.
  • Eat more proteins and vegetables. Stay away from fats and oils.

Can I skip the Transition period and do the Phase 3 of the HCG diet right away?

The answer is NO. There are still traces of HCG in our body. The hormone can make your body extra sensitive to fats. So if you screw up, you can easily gain weight.
