RE-INTRODUCING FOODS

Many people find it hard to increase their intake after Stage 2 and most will find that they are very sensitive to carbohydrates (if they eat carbs, they find it difficult to stop). Therefore, it is best to add foods gradually, in the order listed below, and monitor your weight daily to assess the response.

Day 1-2:


Weigh yourself on day 1 of Stage 3. This is the weight you need to re-set.
Continue the Diet Meal Plan for another two days after completing injections as the hCG hormone is still effective.

Thereafter, you must gradually increase your food intake and eat enough to be satisfied but not full. Research shows that low-carb diets assist with long-term maintenance however “low carb” isdifferent for everyone, so you will need to find the amount of carbohydrates that suit your new weight.

Only eat foods from the Allowed Foods List for Stage 3 and introduce new foods, as follows:

Day 3-7, slowly add:


Any non-starchy vegetables (these will provide you with some carbohydrates)

Any unprocessed, lean protein
All healthy fats
Extras (as per list)

Day 7-12, gradually add 1-2 servings of carbohydrates to your daily intake as follows:

1 serving of pumpkin OR beetroot for dinner
1 low sugar fruit with a meal or as a snack (only if you weren’t eating it in Stage 2, otherwise have nomore than 2 pieces per day)

If your weight remains stable, then on Day 12-17, add 1-2 more servings of carbohydrates, as follows:

1 serving of carbohydrate for lunch
1 low sugar fruit with a meal or as a snack (only if you weren’t eating it in Stage 2, otherwise have nomore than 2 pieces per day)

If your weight remains stable, then on Day 17-21, add another serving of carbohydrates, as follows:

1 serving of carbohydrate for breakfast

If you gain 1kg while re-introducing food, you must do a Protein-Only day (page 26) then return to the level of food and carb intake at which you comfortably maintained your new weight. This is the intake you need to follow until the end of Stage 3.

If you lose more than 1kg during this Stage, increase the size of your meals by 10  (while maintaining proportions of each food group).
