    So even then, its not really a load he is talking about, but eating normally as the HCG builds up in your system again.
    Leez is correct, I was always worried I'd be hungry after the PI, but have never really had hunger at any time on HCG. I would only do the min-load if I had been on the interruption close to the two week period though - say 10-12 days which both my interruptions were, I didn't do one on Round 1 because I wanted to do the 40 day round uninterrupted the first time to make sure I did it BY THE BOOK!!!

    Now there is an interesting idea that I don't think has come up before.

    The whole idea of doing the planned interruption is so you don't have to be rigidly following the diet or taking an special measures. I suppose if you went off the rails and had some kind of massive inflammation gain, you could do a steak day, but its not something that is addressed in the protocol. I think its presumed that you would have some control during the PI.

    Most people do find that whatever they gain in the PI comes off very quickly once they are back in P2.

    Thanks Leez,

    Yes I really plan to just do larger portions of what I eat now with fats and more vegetable options so keeping it basic I have a sensitivity to yeast so I can't even go off the rails really LOL. I just worry because in the past when I've stopped my diet here on day 40 and I didn't eat enough I gained so just figuring out the balance.

    In my final round's planned interruption, I decided to eat some buffalo wings (I'm sensitive to the hot pepper sauce), and I gained over 2 lbs. Since I knew the gain was due to inflammation, so I just had dandelion tea, ate a grilled chicken salad the next day, and took a detox bath and was back down from the gain the next morning.

    I've done a planned interruption on almost every round. I usually do a week because if I go longer than that, it's difficult for me to get back to P2, mentally. I eat P3-style, which means I eat plenty of non-starchy vegetables, fat and protein. I do not have starch, sugar or alcohol. I eat cheese and heavy cream, but I do not have weight gain issues associated with dairy as so many people do. I do not eat 800 calories...I eat until I am satisfied which means I eat a lot and when I get hungry again, I eat more. I've never gained enough to need a correction day so I haven't done one during a PI, and I've also often done them while on vacation so I really had no intention of correcting even if I needed to. I usually end my correction about 1 lb up from my LDW. And that weight and sometimes more is gone after the first day back on P2.

    Correction days are't a "thing" on an interruption. You already know you're going to go back to hcg and if the break is fairly short as it's intended to be, any weight gain is likely inflammation anyway.

    I will say I've never done an interruption. I don't like the mental game it plays with me because the first week is always the hardest and I don't want to go through that more than once in a round. LOL

    I'll keep that in mind. Sometimes when I'm on HCG for a while I move into P3 badly because I go right to all the P3 foods I've been dying to have. I think doing it the way you are saying should be good for me in general.

    Hey Grammy! LOL I hear you on that. I think I did a PI once on a SUPER long round because I needed a break. It actually helped me refocus but I will say that in general I will delay delay delay starting a new round because I feel like I'm about to torture myself for weeks. Once I start it's not bad but getting to start is sooo hard.
