Question re: Phase 3 (stabilization)

Rate this Entry
I start P3 next Tuesday. I read a few places, you ARE NOT supposed to lose weight during P3.

But, what if I'm working out, that's not fat I'm burning. I read if you're losing, its muscle. Also, will I continue to lose inches during P3?

    I started working out 5 days into p3 (supposed to wait until p4) and had trouble stabalizing, but only because I was having trouble consuming more than 800 cals a day. Make sure you're consuming roughly 1500. Since then I have figured out how to raise cals, and have been going to the gym for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week, and since adjusting have stayed within 1lb of my LIW (.5 above some days, .5 below others) That's just my personal experience in reguards to your question. Hope it helps.

    Thanks! That does help. I didn't know you had to wait 4 days. I read that you should start out eating 800-1000 cals the first week and go up each week.

    I'm so terrified, I won't stabilize.

    Sorry I confused you-I started working out after 4 days, even though you're supposed to wait 3 weeks when you're in phase 4. The third day after your last injection or drops is when you should start phase 3 and bring your calories to 1200. I wouldn't start at 800-thats how I gained-my body went into starvation mode. So just to clarify-day one of phase 3 consume 1200 MINIMUM of phase 3 approved foods.
