The 2nd 3 weeks of HCG Maintenance: S-L-O-W-L-Y add Sugars & Starches

  • Slowly, very slowly, add back sugars & starches during the 2nd 3 weeks of HCG phase 3... Did we say slowly?

  • It's best to start adding in natural sugars and starches first, such as higher sugar fruits and starchier vegetables.

  • After adding in the more 'natural' sugars and starches you can eventually reintroduce foods like whole wheat bread, pasta, table sugar, desserts, etc.)

  • The time is takes to reintroduce these foods varies from person to person because your body needs time to adjust and re-learn how to process and handle those certain foods without gaining weight.
  • Protein is still an important aspect in this part of the HCG diet, have protein at every meal and try to incorporate protein into snacks as much as possible.
  • Good foods during the 2nd 3 weeks of HCG maintenance are:
    • All the foods listed in the 1st 3 weeks of HCG maintenance with a little more leniency.
    • Any fruits (including high-sugar fruits: bananas, melons, etc.)
    • Any veggies (including high-carb veggies: potatoes, yams, corn, etc.)
    • A little more dairy (yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, etc.)
    • Lots of salads (with any type of dressing)
    • A little more nuts
    • A little more peanut butter (want lower calories, use powdered peanut butter, see more here)
    • Low carb/high fiber cereals (Kashi, GrapeNut, etc.)
    • Oatmeal
    • Protein Bars (see more here)
    • Protein Shakes (see more here)
    • Your other favorite sugars and starches in very small portions and only one or so a day as the scale allows.
