What the body lacks in protein, it receives from the breakdown of fatty tissue in your system. It is very important that all of the required protein be eaten during the day. If a protein serving is skipped, you can expect to not lose weight. This is because your body will go into “preservation mode”. Basically, it will not burn nutrients or dispel water from your system for fear it will need it later. Therefore it will “preserve” its current storages.
The best options for meats are chicken and white fish. Most are able to eat these two for dinner and lunch every day and lose a great deal of weight. The meats that need to be limited are ground beef, steak and seafood. Seafood has lower protein content and is not good for the protocol on a daily basis. Also, these meats aren’t as light and lean as the chicken and white fish, therefore should be limited to 3 times a week, maximum.
You are encouraged to drink 1 gallon of water per day. This is the key to losing weight during the low calorie phase. The HCG will be releasing fat cells from storages in the body. These cells will gather in the stomach. Water is necessary for dispelling fat cells outside of the body. The only way to rid these cells is to urinate often. If enough water is not consumed, the body will reabsorb fat cells into the stomach lining resulting in less weight loss for the day.
Fluctuations in Weight Loss
After the fourth or fifth day of dieting the daily loss of weight begins to decrease to one pound or somewhat less per day, and there is a smaller urinary output. Men often continue to lose regularly at that rate, but women are more irregular in spite of faultless dieting. There may be no drop at all for two or three days and then a sudden loss which re-establishes the normal average. These fluctuations are entirely due to variations in the retention and elimination of water, which are more marked in women than in men. The weight registered by the scale is determined by two processes not necessarily synchronized under the influence of HCG. Fat is being extracted from the cells, in which it is stored in the fatty tissue. When these cells are empty and therefore serve no purpose, the body breaks down the cellular structure and absorbs it, but breaking up of useless cells, connective tissue, blood vessels, etc., may lag behind the process of fat-extraction. When this happens the body appears to replace some of the extracted fat with water which is retained for this purpose. As water is heavier than fat the scales may show no loss of weight, although sufficient fat has actually been consumed to make up for the deficit in the 500-Calorie diet. When such tissue is finally broken down, the water is liberated and there is a sudden flood of urine and a marked loss of weight. This simple interpretation of what is really an extremely complex mechanism is the one we give those patients who want to know why it is that on certain days they do not lose, though they have committed no dietary error. People, who have previously regularly used diuretics as a method of reducing, lose fat during the first two or three weeks of treatment which shows in their measurements, but the scale may show little or no loss because they are replacing the normal water content of their body which has been dehydrated. Diuretics should never be used for reducing.
A plateau is defined at waking up on the 4th consecutive morning without showing weight loss. It is normal for a patient to experience a plateau during Phase Two. The most common reason for a plateau is water retention. Other reasons include exceeding the calorie limit, drinking under 1 gallon of water or eating foods off the approved list. In the case of a dietary error, you are told to do an “Apple Day”. An “Apple Day” begins at noon the first day and continues until noon the second day. On the morning of your apple day begin by eating 3 egg whites for breakfast, drinking any approved fluids as you wish. Starting at noon, and going until noon the second day, you will limit your water intake and eat between 6 and 8 apples until noon the second day. One the second day you may have your typical HCG dinner, a 4 ounce serving of protein and one or two vegetables. Please keep in mind that you will want to stay within the 500-750 calorie restrictions each day.
Dieters are discouraged to break up their cycles of HCG. The reasoning behind this is it takes a consecutive 23 doses for the hypothalamus to reset your metabolism. You might successfully lose weight, but you will gain it back once your therapy is complete. Another reason, immediately following a cycle of HCG, the dieter must complete the 21 day Phase 3 maintenance phase. That follow up phase is required regardless of the length of the cycle. If the dieter decides to break up their cycle, it is typically because they have a vacation or party planned and dieting is not desired. If eating foods containing starches or sugars occurs, you will gain all of your weight back. For best results, plan ahead for your HCG drops.
