HOW TO END THE DIET
Once you have reached your goal weight, stop taking the hcg, but continue the VLCD for 3 more days. At the end of the 3 days, you can eat anything except sugars and starches, as long as you weigh yourself each morning after emptying your bladder, and before eating or drinking anything.
It takes about 3 weeks before the weight reached by the end of the diet becomes stable. During this 3 week period, the intake of carbohydrates must be carefully limited. To prevent weight gain during this 3 week period maintaining a low carb diet like Adkins or South beach.
If your weight goes up by 2 pounds or more, that day you must skip breakfast and lunch, but drink at least 2 liters of fluids. That evening eat as large a steak as you can, along with an apple or a raw tomato. It is of utmost importance that this done on the day of the weight. Do not postpone this to the following day.
LOOSING MORE WEIGHT
You should never gain more than two pounds ,and you should never lose more than 2 pounds either because this loss will be due to the loss of normal fat. Any normal fat that is lost can be regained without fail as soon as more food is taken, and it usually results in a gain of more than 2 pounds.
BEWARE OF OVER ENTHUSIASM
After treatment has ended, a problem can be encountered with people who are skeptical that they can resume eating normally. If you continue, more or less, on the 500 calorie diet, adding only a few things to the diet, you will gain weight. Follow the rules listed above and this will not happen.
Dr. Simeons had to 60% to 70% of his cases who experienced little or no difficulty in holding their weight permanently. When relapses did occur it was usually due to the negligence in the basic rule of daily weighing. Many patients think that this is unnecessary and that they can judge an increase from the fit of their clothes. Some do not carry a scale with them while traveling as it is cumbersome and takes a big bite out their luggage allowance when flying. This is a disastrous mistake, because after a course of HCG as much as ten pounds can be regained with any noticeable change in the fit of their clothes.
The reason for this is that after treatment newly acquired fat is first evenly distributed and does not show the former preference for certain body parts.
Pregnancy or the menopause may annul the effect of a previous treatment. Women who take treatment during one year after the last menstruation – that is at the onset of menopause do just well as others, but among them the relapse rate is higher until the menopause is fully established. The period of one year after the last menstruation applies only to women who are not being treated with ovarian hormones. If these are taken, the pre menopausal period may be indefinitely prolonged.
If you experience a come back weight gain,you can go for a second course of hcg and it is completely acceptable. Repeat courses can often be more satisfactory with the results than with the first one.
