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.

@DONNA, Walden Farms dressings are legal. We find ours at Drug Emporium.
@P. Little, Yes and some do not like it and it may stall you as Splenda does stall some people and cause cravings. Everyone is different. Apple Cider and Stevia rocks.
@DONNA, Sugar free. AVOID fat free, Olive Oil and Vinegar is excellent, Apple Cider Vinegar with Stevia,
Question: I am at the end of my first week of Phase 3 after 30 days on the drops. I was admittedly nervous about Phase 3 but had been proceeding fairly well. I am strict about no starches/no sugars however in tracking my food have discovered that I am ingesting what I think to be a high number of natural carbs? Today I woke up and weighed, only to discover I had gained 2.2 pounds! I was concerned that I might not be eating enough protein which could be the case but now must do a steak day which I was trying to avoid. Any points to avoid this in the future? I do not wish to bounce around and keep doing steak days. Any recommendations on how much protein to get? I set my protein/carbs/fat %s to 40/30/30 but have a hard time getting enough calories. Any analyses you provide would be of help. Thanks
@Linda, The best advice is on the post hCG Diet Phase 3 foods. I gave myself a 10 pound ley way as I was also exercising and knew water gains would happen and mucle gains would cause scale to act nutty. Barring that, you will always have natural weight gains due to hormones. Follow P3 food list eat red meat occasionally and you should be fine.
@Dez, Thank you SO much. I did a steak day and was down 2 pounds today. Think things will settle out as I get further into maintenance but you've given me the reassurance I needed at this point. My hormones are always acting nutty and have been for the past ten years - in fact, the first time they've settled down to any kind of consistency was during Phase 2 - what a blessing! This eating healthy is really a challenge to get enough food for a decent day's calories; never thought I would be making THAT statement. Thanks again for the encouragement. I love the HcG regimen for a myriad of reasons.
Question: I'm on day 43, so no more injections of HGC for me - hurray! However, my HCG "advisor" said it is a good idea to continue to inject B12 until the bottle is empty. I was thinking of doing the B12 just through the remaining 72 hours of VLCD. Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
Go to and try recipes from George Stella. He is a chef who embraced the Atkins diet and lost over 200 lbs, but his show is off the air now. All his recipes are no white flour, no sugar and taste fabulous! I have his cookbook "Eating Stella Style", and it seems that a majority of his recipes are going to work for phase 3...unless they call for dairy. I believe he calls for Splenda occassionally, so you should exchange that for Stevia if required. He also uses Soy Flour and Almond flour for some recipes which might be a good road for phase 4. Both food network and the book recipes include prep time, cook time AND nutritional analysis. So eat until your tummy is full - not stuffed - and watch the scale. Have fun!
@Tanya, Sorry... dairy is ok. I'm just lactose intolerant, so I tend to avoid it. However, I am going to be very cautious about cheese because it can be so fattening! Eggs - bring 'em on!
I have 5 days of HGC injections remaining of my 43. I've lost just over 20lbs and an amazing amount of inches. My husband is very pleased, and generally so am I. People asked why I would do such a program over Christmas / New Year's, and it was an easy answer. What could be a better gift to myself or way to ring in the new year than feeling healthier and looking better? That's after 4 years of improving my eating habits/workout routine with no weight loss (my cholesterol & blood work went from good to fabulous though)! As I count down to Phase 3, I think I've determined that I am looking most forward to olive oil, eggs and oddly enough... salmon! Phase 4 - ahhh.... that glass of red wine!
