Phase 3 Stabilization & Maintenance – 21 days VERY IMPORTANT

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.

There are two ways to go on the maintenance phase of our programs.

First is the tried and true hCG Maintenance phase.

Second is to make a change to the Paleo/Primal/Caveman diet.

  • We urge you to go Paleo at this point. There are great reviews and you can research this for yourself if you want. If you want to learn all about Paleo, Google www.jackkruse.com
  • Please keep us posted about your progress during this Phase of your Program.
  • This is a very Important Phase. Follow it carefully: DO NOT THINK YOU CAN SKIP THIS PHASE.
  • BEFORE YOU BEGIN PHASE THREE, CALL THE OFFICE. We will help you decide Paleo or HCG
  • After using all your HCG and you have done three days without hCG while staying at 750 calories, you will now begin Phase 3. You must increase your calories in this phase. In Phase 3, your body no longer has the hCG working to protect your lean muscle. During Phase 3, it is very important to maintain lean muscle tissue to prevent a slowed metabolism. Get lots of Protein.

This plan was developed to add in allowable fats and a fast jump right up to 1500 calories on P3, day one. This can be safely carried out, without the possibility of gaining weight, due to the omission of nuts, breads, beans, legumes, and limiting dairy. However, most dieters prefer to slowly add back in their calories and that is fine. For dieters who want to stabilize at their new weight, during the next 3 weeks you must keep your weight within +/- 2 pounds of where you were when you stopped taking HCG. This will allow your hypothalamus to reset and establish your new weight as your normal weight. If you gain more than 2 lbs., you may do a correction day (depending on the cause of gain). If you lose more than 2 lbs., increase your food intake by 100-200 calories. You will use the new calorie limits on the second weight chart attached.

By week 2 you can start adding healthy oil fats such as avocados, cooking oils, whole eggs, and low moisture, skim mozzarella cheese. Full fats are allowed but no sugar, salad dressing and mayonnaise. (Please make sure to observe the sugar and caloric content.) Some dieters may choose to add these back in the first week, just make sure you watch the scale and don't overdo it. To obtain optimal stabilization, especially if this is your last round, hold off on adding in nuts, grain breads (sprouted or un-sprouted - aka, Ezekiel bread), beans, legumes, and limit dairy in the 21 days of stabilization. All too often people over-indulge on these items which can stress out the adrenals and engage a whole chain reaction leading to weight gain.

Increase your protein to about 6 oz. per serving.

  • Continue to drink plenty of water daily.
  • Increase your daily caloric intake to about 1500-2300 calories depending on your weight. Learn how to estimate your caloric daily intake by using our simple calculation method.
  • You may have any fruit or vegetable you wish except corn, yams, and bananas (in moderation) as they are high in sugar and carbohydrates.
  • You may eat any kind of meat, fish, shellfish, or poultry desired.
  • You may use extra virgin olive oil, organic coconut oil, or MCT oil in moderation.
  • You may eat cheese but only low moisture skim mozzarella and very sparingly in this 21-day period.
  • 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.

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 number 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.

For Phase 3 Maintenance, there are three more weeks of work on your program. If you started at 750 calories, you need to add 250 additional calories each week. Remember that you are to stay at 750 calories without the hCG injections for three days after using all your HCG. After that add 250 calories per week starting at the beginning of week 1 until you reach your goal weight.

Paleo Diet Food Lists

This is the definitive paleo diet food list. In it, you’ll find a list of the paleo diet meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and oils that are allowed on the paleo diet. You can throw these into any delicious paleo recipe (or make up your own) and be 100% sure that your paleo diet compliant :). Let’s get started

Eat
  • Grass-fed meats
  • Fresh fruits
  • Eggs
  • Fish/seafood
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Nuts
Healthy oils (olive, walnut, flaxseed, macadamia, avocado, coconut)
Eggs (duck, chicken, or goose)

Paleo Diet Allowable Meat, Seafood and Poultry
This is a list of paleo diet meats allowed on the diet. Almost all meats are paleo by definition. Of course, you’ll want to stay away from highly processed meats and meats that are very high in fat (stuff like spam, hot dogs, and other low-quality meats), but if it used to moo, oink, or make some other sound, it’s almost certainly paleo (and that means you can still have bacon). Here’s the full list of paleo diet protein foods.
  • Turkey, Chicken breast, Pork tenderloin
  • Veal
  • Ground beef
  • Chicken leg
  • Pheasant
  • Ostrich
  • New York steak
  • Bison jerky
  • Lamb chops
  • Pork chops
  • Bacon
  • Grass-fed beef
  • Chicken wings
  • Wild boar
  • Venison steaks
  • Bison
  • Bison ribeye
  • Rabbit
  • Steak
  • Pork
  • Chicken thigh
  • Lamb rack
  • Beef jerky
  • Buffalo
  • Bison steaks
  • Bison sirloin
  • Goat

 

Fish and Seafood Items
Fish are on the paleo diet and they’re chock full of good stuff like omega-3s as well. If it swims and has fins, it’s paleo diet food list worthy. Have it!
  • Bass
  • Sardines
  • Sunfish
  • Walleye
  • Shrimp
  • Oysters
  • Salmon
  • Tuna
  • Swordfish
  • Crab
  • Clams
  • Salmon
  • Halibut
  • Red snapper
  • Tilapia
  • Crawfish
  • Lobster
  • Mackerel
  • Shark
  • Trout
  • Crayfish
  • Scallops

 

Paleo Diet Vegetables
Almost all vegetables are paleo, but you need to be careful here. Vegetables with high starch content such as potatoes and squash tend to have low nutritional value in comparison to the amount of starches/carbs/sugars they contain.
  • Asparagus
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Parsley
  • Avocado
  • Spinach
  • Cabbage
  • Eggplant
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Celery
  • Peppers (all kinds)
  • Green onion
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Starchy Vegetables

These vegetables are quite starchy, so eat them in moderation especially if you’re trying to lose weight.
  • Butternut squash*
  • Sweet potato*
  • Acorn squash*
  • Beets*
  • Yam*

 

Paleo Diet Oils/Fats
Contrary to popular belief, fat doesn’t make you fat; carbs do (and the Standard American Diet contains a ton of them!). Natural oils and fats are your body’s preferred sources of creating energy, so it’s best to give your body what it’s asking for. The following are some of the best types of paleo diet oils and fats that you can give your body if you’re in need of some additional energy.
  • Coconut oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Olive oil
  • Grass-fed butter

Please note: peanuts are NOT paleo as they’re not actually a nut. They’re a legume!

 

Paleo Diet Fruits
Fruits are not only delicious, but they’re also great for you. That said, fruits (even paleo-approved ones) contain large amounts of fructose which, while much better than HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup), is still sugar. If you’re looking to lose weight on the paleo diet, you’ll want to cut back on your fruit intake and focus more on the vegetables allowed on the paleo diet. However, feel free to have one or two servings of fruit a day. (We’ll admit, we’re partial to blackberries!)
  • Apple
  • Peaches
  • Blueberries
  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Bananas*
  • Avocado
  • Plums
  • Grapes
  • Pineapple guava
  • Tangerine
  • Blackberries
  • Mango
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Figs
  • Papaya
  • Lychee
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Oranges

*While these starchy foods are great for energy replacement for paleo diet athletes who are spending long periods of time exercising and who need some of the starchier foods to sustain their energy levels, if you’re trying to lose weight on the paleo diet, you’ll want to limit the quantities of these that you’re eating.
Eat high-sugar fruits in moderation. They’re great for you, but it’s easy to overdo it. Remember, your caveman ancestors didn’t have access to Florida’s orange groves 24/7, so you probably shouldn’t try to eat a bushel of oranges in your next paleo diet meal.
