Day2 phase 3 weight gain

Rate this Entry
Wow, now I'm freaking out. This is my second day and I gain another pound. That's a total of two pounds!what do I do? My TOM is suppose to come sometime this week, but this has nothing to do with it, right? I'm in desperate need of help. I've been doing good until now. :-(
I have been following my handbook that the nurse gave me. I have been strict about it. Also I wanted to know, is biotin safe to use? These are vitamins for hair and nails.

    Biotin should be fine.

    I understand the "freak out" you're having. Are you now two pounds above your last injection weight? If you are, it's time for a "Correction Day". There are a few options, but the protocol specified by Dr. Simeons is as follows:

    "entirely skip breakfast and lunch but take plenty to drink. In the evening eat a huge steak with only an apple or a raw tomato."

    Google "hcg correction day phase 3" for other options (chicken thigh day, egg day, full fat greek yogurt day".

    HOWEVER, it very well could be due to water retention since TOM is about to appear. That's probably what has happened with me. I understand your frustration, truly.

    Hang in there!

    Yeah I am above my LIW by 2pounds. I will give it one more day then, before I do a correction day. I will look into the chicken thigh day. It's easy to get on panic mode after 6 weeks of successful weight loss.

    Dr. Simeons says to do the correction day immediately, so I wouldn't wait (if possible). I think the reasoning is because Phase 3 is the phase that "resets" our metabolic rate and weight, so you don't want to go too long at the higher weigh in. I could be wrong, but that's what I've gleaned from information I've read.

    I'm doing another round, so I'm stabilized higher than I want to be, but I'm STABLE and that's what is important to me right now.
