  1. Hi

    Your weight loss journey is so impressive.
    I want to try it out , i trust the process im sure it works, but im just worried that with a low calorie intake the minute i get off the diet and start eating even 1500 calories (which is below normal daily consumption) that i would gain all the weight back. Please help?

      Leez has explained it well in her response, but I’ll add a little from my own experience.

      When I finished my first round, I was so scared that I would gain the weight back… I went to the grocery store, walked around getting more and more anxious everytime I went to put something into the cart… I ended up with an empty cart and leaving without buying a thing! haha. This was back long before we had easy access to the manuscript, or I wouldn’t have had this issue. Now I know, it’s as easy as following the phase 3 guidelines to avoid eating the wrong foods and stick to the same portions. I have always found it surprisingly easy to maintain during phase 3- even this last time, when I was moving and couldn’t always eat perfectly on protocol. I still didn’t gain the weight back.

      I think it’s also important to focus on your “after hcg” plan even before phase 3 comes around. Start considering which exercise or activities you enjoy that you can do a few times a week. Learn a few yoga poses to do every morning. You’d be surprised how little it takes to maintain your new weight point.

      Also, get used to the portion sizes you eat during phase 2- this is something I have adapted and it is surprisingly satisfying. There are other aspects of phase 2 that you can incorporate for the long run as well- like food choices. Recognize the hcg diet food list as forever-acceptable foods. In phase 3, as you start adding foods to your menu, you can add more foods to your “these keep my body fit and healthy” list. For example, I know I can eat strawberries and any other berry and my body loves them. Same with almonds. My body tends to gain weight with dairy- I have even realized that my body doesn’t do too great with eggs too often. I gain a little. These will be things you can discover during phase 2 and phase 3, before moving on to lifelong maintenance in phase 4 🙂

  2. Hi Sara,
    That is a very common fear, because our experience has told us that once you get off a diet, the weight comes back. This protocol, when precisely followed is very different. I know its hard to believe, but it is more common for people to gain weight in the 3 weeks after the diet from eating too little than it is from eating too much. Coming out of Phase 2, your metabolism is in fat-burning mode and it is really important to stoke those fires to keep it going. You will be amazed at how this works once you get into it. I know I was. The stabilization period (3 weeks following Phase 2) is a critical part of the protocol. It is important to do it correctly in order to keep your progress. That means getting your calories up quickly.

    Don’t let your fear rob you of the joy that is part of Phase 3. Try to embrace both phases as part of the same prescription and trust the process for the whole of it. People report over and over how amazed they are at the amount they can eat in P3 and not go out of their 2 pound window. It is the normal result, not the exception. I hope that relieves some of your apprehension.
