hCG Diet Phase 3 Food List

Everyone seems to have questions about what to do on Phase 3 of the hCG diet when it comes to food and calories. All Doctor Simeons says is no sugar or starches, but that does leave room for one to wonder and still doubt what to eat, how much to eat, and what are the best foods to eat on Phase 3.

 

This is a list Phase 3 foods that hCG Diet Journey believes are healthy and good for long-term maintenance. This is NOT an official list (as there isn’t any) but a combination of what the hCG Diet Journey team has always suggested to people, Atkins Low Carb Maintenance & Mediterranean Style eating.

This Phase 3 food list along with a good book on food counts, values, and calories, like Netzer’s is an excellent resource. And yes, Miracle Noodles are, as always, on any phase!

There are 7 keys to Phase 3 foods and long term success with your weight loss.

1. Avoiding man made pre packaged foods
2. Avoiding sugars, processed foods, and refined white flour
3. Portion control (especially at restaurants)
4. Eating bad foods in moderation
5. Exercise
6. Knowing what foods work best for your health and weight
7. Your desire for long-term success & willingness to eat better

After Phase 3 Food List Long Term Maintenance and Beyond

For Long Term maintenance after Phase 3 you would include the all the above and you can add the following to your menu. There isn’t any calorie restrictions for maintenance or any particular ratios.

A general rule of thumb is 40/30/30 40% of protein, 30% of carbs and 30% of fats, however you may have to adjust according to what works for you. It takes experimentation, listening to your body, and watching your mood as to your reactions.

Another good rule is limiting dairy and really watching your how your digestive system reacts.

Add foods back slow to better judge if they are working for you or not.

The idea here is to develop your personal list of foods that make you feel great and maintain your weight.

Dairy

Cottage Cheese
Heavy Cream
Mozzarella Cheese
Ricotta Cheese
Blue Cheeses
Cheddar
Cow, Sheep, and Goat Cheese

@shell,

Once you lose the weight, phase 3 means that you eat an amount that will keep the weight off. 1,200 calories sounds right, just keep weighing yourself to make sure the weight doesn't creep back on slowly. If you watch your calories and do some of the things you learned, you will keep the weight off long term.

@shell,

You are on the page of the foods to eat, the calorie count to go by and you are on Phase 3 of the hCG diet.  Not sure what else we can say or other suggestions to give.

I started the HCG diet a few weeks ago and did really well on my first week of the VLCD. (I lost 16.2lbs!!) BUT then I went out of town for a week. Staying in a hotel, having no vehicle, and only ordering room service, I came back home with a 2.6lb gain. I've been having a very hard time getting back on protocol. Its almost as though the drops (which are real HCG drops) are no longer helping the hunger and I just keep eating and eating. I did manage to lose another 1.4lbs, but have now been stalled for 4 days. I am now on day 18 of Phase 2. Should I stop Phase 2, go into Phase 3 and start over in a few weeks? Should I continue with Phase 2 and just see what happens? HELP!!!!!
@Andrea,

The drops are still working, you have, by eating carbs, kicked yourself out of ketosis and turned your body back to carb burning for fuel and cause yourself to have cravings for sugars and fats.  Even ordering only room service, sticking for low carb choices would have been better then the high carb dishes you more than likely eat.

Nothing in walking distance?  2 miles is walking distance or rather whatever distance you are willing to walk is walking distance. No exercise room while out of town?

Tough love as there is always an excuse to fail and seldom and excuse as to why you succeed.

Yes you need to stop P2 move to P3 take 6 weeks off then go back to the hCG diet.  Your drops won't be good by then so ordering some hCG diet pills will work as we do not have drops any longer.

Im ending my 3 weeks of phase three and i havent lost a pound. Ive eaten lean meats, veggies and fruits. I was told i could lose an additional ten pounds in this phase althought id like to lose about 5. I only gained once, which i did a steak day. I gained .2 today, so i'll do another one. Could it be possible i havent lost because i was under calorie? What can i do to continue to lose the last bit, while i add some carbs back in? I decided to go with low carb bread and pasta, rather than jump into whole wheat varieties.. will that help? And doesnt that mean im basically doing Atkins? I need advice! Im terrified to eat now! I dont know what to do... Im so close, just 5 more pounds...
@jenny,

Phase 3 isn't about losing it's about maintaining what you lose on Phase 2 and staying within 2 pounds of that loss.  You have done that.  

The creator of the diet says cheese, dairy, nuts are okay. Why does the person answering these questions say otherwise?
@Marie,

These items are high in carbs so they are disallowed.

Hi, I have just finished phrase 2. I am on my first day of 500 calories for three days without the drops. For the first time since this diet I am so hungry. Do I just not eat, and stick to the 500 calories or is there something I can do. I am drinking lots of water. So want to keep the weight off. I guess I'm scared I'll eat more since I am hungry. Any suggestions. Thanks
@Pat,

At the end of Phase 2 you have to get the hCG out of your system that is why you do 3 days of 500 calories or else you will gain weight as in Loading Days.  That is not the intent or your intent.  Miracle Noodles, Coffee, Tea anything with caffeine in it would help.  IF really that hungry try increasing protein as well, 200 grams each meal.  Salad, load up on salad.
