hCG Diet Phase 3

Depending on which hCG diet protocol you are following, this is a very critical phase. It's critical for Dr. Simeons followers and critical for The Weight Loss Cure followers, and for those that take a little from each and combine the two hCG diet protocols.
If you lost the weight you wanted and don’t need another round, this will be your maintenance phase. If you have more to lose this, it will be part of your first round of the hCG protocol.
Again, if you’re just gathering information about the hCG diet for weight loss, you may want to read hCG Diet Phase 1, then hCG Diet Phase 2 before reading this post. If you have been waiting for us to finally write this, then here it is!

Dr. Simeons’ hCG Diet Phase 3

Now that you have lost weight, this becomes the critical phase for two reasons. One, if you have lost all the weight you wanted, you want to maintain your loss. Two, if you have more to lose, you want to maintain your loss and continue to lose. Either way, hCG diet phase 3 is where you reset the hypothalamus.

The rules are pretty easy. Eat whatever you want, watch your weight, stay within 2 pounds of your total loss. If you gain more than you should, do an apple day or steak day. BUT the reality is that eating whatever you want is not the smartest way to maintain your loss.

If you eat cookies, fast food, chips, dips, pizza, cake, and cookies, the weight will come back. Liposuction, Lap Band, and Gastric Bypass people all regain weight if they ‘go back’ to eating the way they did before.

If you lift weights, you will gain muscle, then the 2 pounds may not apply either because muscle weighs more than fat. This is why taking your measurements is just as important as scale weight.

The reality is that maintaining your weight loss is an Inconvenient Life style change and a commitment to that change. The hCG diet protocol gives you a huge advantage because you have learned a lot about portion control, a different way of cooking, a different way of nourishing your body, and you have substantially decreased your taste for sweets. All these things are to your advantage as your real challenge commences. Your Life Style Change.

If you have more to lose, you will stay on phase 3 for 3 weeks but wait various times between your next round of oral hCG or hCG Injections. For example, when you end your first round of the hCG protocol, you stay on hCG diet phase 3 for 3 weeks but wait 6 weeks to restart.

When you end your second round you wait 8 weeks to restart the hCG diet protocol.  And when you end your third round of the protocol, you wait 12 weeks before starting your fourth round. This comes from the Pounds and Inches manuscript and is strict Dr. Simeons' protocol.

You may see around the web, on other sites, or at your hCG diet clinic, people who do 3 weeks between rounds or even not stopping until they have lost the weight. This is not meant to debate what is right or wrong but simply to give you Dr. Simeons’ method.

The #1 question that persists with this phase of the hCG diet is “What Do I Eat?.” If you have read a previous post, After The hCG Diet, then you know it’s not an easy question to answer, and Dr. Simeons didn’t elaborate. In general, the best choices keep company in the low carb realm (this includes low carb variations such as South Beach, 40/30/30, etc.), eating in moderation, and eating healthy Omega 3 fats and mono-saturated fats, like olive oil.

We have helped hCG dieters with a good list of hCG Diet Phase 3 foods they can eat and enjoy. It's in the vein of Low Carb and Mediterranean eating and will help you keep your weight within the 2 pound limit as required in Phase 3.

If you are finished with the diet, and lost all you wanted, then these rules apply; if you have more weight to lose, then these rules apply. Just watch what you eat, eat in moderation, make healthy choices and make a life style change.

Kevin Trudeau’s hCG Diet, Phase 3

For Kevin Trudeau’s hCG diet devotees, you will begin your actual diet of the hCG protocol by following Dr. Simeons hCG diet food list, only eating organic and hormone free foods.

During KT’s phase 3 protocol, you will also continue to do colonics. 15 colonics are suggested, aiding in further detoxing of the body and in promoting weight loss.

You will also take the hCG diet supplements. Supplements include Krill oil, L-Carnitine, CoralCal, and Natural Calm.


Hi:  you read what was said so the answer is in what you read.  However can you help with both starting and ending?  No so you have to do the best you can.  Follow the diet.

I had a question about excercise in phase 3. It states that your are supposed to eat between 1200 and 1500 calories. I assume that is without excercise, now if you exercise do need to eat even more calories?

You can exercise, you may not need more caloires.

HTH starting on phase 3.. my ldw was 228.. my first day after with no drops i lost another im at 227 right now.. so my question is it safe to say that i will gain what ever weight i lost back bringing me back to the 228 pounds that i was on the last dosing weight.. what foods are good for people like me who are starting phase 3? how many weeks is phase 3 if youre not dieting again until next year say around january 2012?
@dawn walton,

For Phase 3 foods just click that link for the best hCG diet recommended foods. (a lot of information is listed on the right hand side with red heading to make it easy to find).  You have a 2 pound leeway from the last day you were on P2 that would be your weight to maintain.  You will need to Between rounds 1 and 2 6 weeks to start again. P3 is 3 weeks. 

Hello again! I am in P2 and will be there until November 20, 2011 where I stay on P2 for three more days but not taking the HCG drops, of which I start P3 on November 23 eating 1500 calories per day. Looking at the calendar Thanksgiving is on the 24th I feel I am going to fall since I have large family and I am doing the cooking this year. What tips can you give me and others facing the same problem? It’s easy to say just don’t, but it is Thanksgiving and with all the pies, stuffing, potatoes, and gravy! I just know I will eat the things I should not! Ps. I have lost 44 pounds on this round and a total of 95 pound lost using Real hCG Drops (Of which I don't want to lose them ever again!) I went from a 54 inch waist ro a lose 42. I am looking for 38 inch waist!

@Kris ,

You will be in P3 and still need to avoid foods with sugar and starch.  The list would be too long of foods to avoid so here is the recommend hCG diet phase 3 foods too eat.  By eating starch and sugar your hard work to loss weight will suffer and you will wreck havoc with resetting the hypothalamus aka your metabolism at this delicate phase.


I hAve a couple of question, phase 3 day 4. can I take protien shake without gaining weight? Also Can I eat almond and cottage cheese on phase 3?

IF you follow the Phase 3 hCG diet food list that will be your best bet.  You will have to read labels for sugar and starch if you falter from the list of P3 foods

I don't see in the information, how long a person should stay on P3 with the exceptions of those starting another round. I don't need to do that, but was wondering do I stay on P3 for 3 weeks or more?
