You may eat cheese but only low moisture skim mozzarella and very sparingly in this 21 day period. This could become the most exciting new part of your diet.  It is also a radical change from the typical HCG programs available and we love it.

During this period, the “starchy” carbohydrates, such as sugar, rice, bread, potatoes, pasta, pastries, etc., should be avoided. Other foods to avoid are nuts, legumes, cereal, granola bars, protein bars (unless low in sugar and carbohydrates), and oatmeal. I recommend healthy carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables, and good fats obtained from specific oils. If you shock your body quickly and load up on complex carbohydrates, the potential for weight gain is possible. This must be carefully observed during the first 3 weeks (21 days) after the treatment has ended, otherwise, you may gain a few pounds back and your metabolism may not reset properly.

After the initial 3-week period, you can start adding back in complex carbohydrates in moderation to your diet, one at a time, during the following 3 weeks. The reason for adding only 1 new food item at a time (1 per day) is so that you can determine the following day if that food agrees or doesn’t agree with your body system, based on the feedback from your scale. A sudden increase in weight may mean you have eaten something that is causing inflammation or water retention in your body and you might want to consider avoiding that food, or having a smaller serving of it, in the future.

Try to eat six times per day. It is very important to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and have three snacks throughout the day. This will promote an increase in metabolism. You may exercise more aggressively now, as your body is taking in a higher amount of calories.

Resistance training is acceptable in this phase as tolerated and you may increase the length of your cardio workouts as tolerated. If you need to lose more weight, you must remain on Phase 3 for an additional 3 weeks for a total of 6 weeks until you start your second round of the HCG. The new protocol requires the prescribing physician to inform the patient that a 6 week break is required before starting another round.

  • Continue to avoid butter and margarine.
  • Seasonings may be used that are low in sodium.
  • Limit dairy products if possible.
  • Avoid nuts, breads, beans, and legumes.
  • Continue to avoid sweets.
