Can you do a steak day in Phase 2

Rate this Entry
I am on R1 Day 29 and can't seem to get below 170. I have done ok I guess on this diet or as I like to call it a lifestyle change. I started at 187 and am at 170 on day 29. So not many days left until I get to the 40 days and am really wanting to drop the weight. My goal is 150 and from the looks of it I probably won't hit it on this round. I was wondering if can do a steak day on Phase 2. As I understand it it is only steak for 24 hrs. Water and tea as well correct? Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated. Would love to get to 160 by the time I am done with injections.

    How many days have you been at 170? It is my understanding, steak days are only reserved for P3. Accordingly to Pounds & Inches, Dr S says to do an apple day. Six apples throughout the day with only enough water to quench thirst, I believe. Best to refer back to his book. Have you checked the forum for stall info? Might be lots of good info there. It is also my understanding it's not all that unusual to stall for a few days especially the longer you are on HCG.

    If I could make some suggestions, maybe these will help. If you are eating beef, switch to only chicken breast and allowable fish. If eating oranges and apples, eat only strawberries. Try dropping the melba/breadsticks, after all, it won't be allowed in P3. Are you drinking plenty of water? It's very important never to be thirsty and to drink 2 glasses around bedtime. Try keeping a weight loss journey so you can go back and review. I think sometimes we get a little more relaxed and maybe go slightly off protocol so make sure you are strict protocol.

    I'm R1, P2, VLCD 11 and had my first no weight loss day. I've been warned about it so it's not a big deal. I'm sure my eyebrows will raise tomorrow if it's the same again LOL Hang in there; I think you are doing great. I understand your frustration because I want to lose it all and not have to do anymore rounds!!

    Blessings,

    Here's some info regarding stalls from grammy1952, a moderator. Hope this helps

    Stalls


    If there's one question that we veterans get more than any other, it's about stalls. We answer these every single day. So here is the skinny on stalls: THEY HAPPEN. You didn't do anything wrong. A stall after the first few days of great losses is almost a given. A long stall in the middle of the round is more common than not.

    But rejoice! Stalls aren't a bad thing. I know they feel bad because you've been so good and have followed the diet to a T. But what happens is that you are gaining back some of the water you lost early on. So the fat THAT IS STILL BEING LOST is not showing up on the scales. I really believe those stalls help solidify the losses for when you get to P3 too. I see way more people upset about gaining in P3 when they rushed there as soon as they could because of that typical stall. They assume their body is done, but that's not the case.

    So don't be fooled. Hold the course and don't let the stall upset you. It will break when it's ready to break. There is little you can do about it. You may read stories about having a handful of nuts or doing a mini steak day. But these things really don't work. It's just coincidence because the stall was about to break anyway. It would have broken no matter what you did. We get so desperate for it to break that we will try anything. Take your measurements. This will encourage you when you are in the middle of a stall. I have had 10 day stalls in the middle of every long round so I know how upsetting it can be. But put your sights on the end goal and know that you are getting there!
