Summary of the HCG Phase 3 - HCG Diet Maintenance Phase
**information taken from diyhcg.com**
1st 3 weeks: NO sugars and NO starches, Low Carb Diets
That means N-O bad for you sugars and N-O starches
If you cheat during this phase you may mess up all of the hard work you endured over the last month and take the chance of making maintenance in the future much more difficult. Believe me, you don’t want to do that.
Good foods to eat on this phase are protein-rich sources such as meats, eggs, hot wings, jerky, low-ish carb fruits and veggies, a few almonds, a little bit of cheese, some healthy fats, and some fantastic salads with extremely low-carb dressing such as Ranch dressing and Blue Cheese.
2nd 3 weeks: S-L-O-W-L-Y adding back sugars and starches in (starchier fruits and vegetables, good whole wheat bread, etc.)
Slowly, very slowly, add back sugars & starches (starchier fruits and vegetables, good whole wheat bread, etc.)
Your body needs time to adjust as the new food is being introduced.
Good foods during this time are all the foods listed in the 1st 3 weeks with a little more leniency, any fruits and veggies, a little more dairy (yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, etc.), still lots of salads, maybe a little more peanut butter, more milk, low carb/high fiber cereals like Kashi, oatmeal, etc. and your other favorite sugars and starches in very small portions and only one or so a day as the scale allow.
