Ending Phase 2
You can end Phase 2 and stop taking your drops anytime you wish before the 45 days and move into the maintenance phase (phase 3).
This phase is extremely important and will determine your success, so DON'T SLIP NOW!!!!
You will transition into this phase by simply choosing a day to stop taking the drops. They are Homeopathic and have no addicting qualities (except for you being spoiled by the weightloss)!
You will continue with the very low calorie diet for the next 3 days without taking the drops to allow the HCG to exit your system. You should not feel hunger.
For the next 3 weeks, avoid starches and sugars like the plague and begin eating normal sized meals.
Your calorie restrictions have been lifted.
For the next 3 weeks, avoid starches and sugars like the plague and begin eating normal sized meals and please know that if you go back to eating poorly during this phase, your hypothalamus will lose it's reset and you will quickly regain the pounds!
Now, pay attention. During this phase, your hypothalamus is teetering on your new set-weight point and your job is to avoid starches, sugars, and senseless eating. This will cause your new lower weight to settle in and stop teetering.
Continue to weigh yourself each morning as usual and be careful not to allow your weight to go any more than 2 pounds above your new set-weight point. If at any point it does, take a steak day (see below). Your ability to keep your weight within 2 lbs of your final weight for 3 weeks is what sets this lovely new weight that your hypothalamus will signal your metabolism to fight for!!!
No other diet system on the planet will reset your hypothalamus and allow you to safely lose this kind of weight, this fast! Period!
Steak Day: If you awake to find that your weight is beyond 2 lbs over your new set point, even slightly, you should immediately proceed with Steak Day. Drink as much water, coffee and tea as you like throughout the day, but do not eat anything until dinner. Have a steak weighing between 8 and 14 oz.
Do not add sauces and avoid salt. Immediately follow the steak with a medium raw apple or raw tomato. When you weigh-in the following morning you will have lost the excess weight! Tah-dah!!!
