Day 3

Good morning...

Today is your first day of dieting. You will eat just 500 calories today and every day until the end of P1.

After going to the toilet and before you eat or drink anything, weigh yourself naked and record your weight in the Daily Log

Take your HCG Application - Depending on method: Inject, Take or Apply.

You have gained a little - … kg/lbs - don't panic. It will all drop off in a day or two.

Drink lots of water, this is good for your kidneys (produces more diluted urine - wee-wee) and it will help with elimination through your bowels too (softer faeces - poo). Make a habit of drinking lots of water all the way through the diet.

You can also drink black, green and herb tea, coffee - no sugar though. If you can’t live without sweetener, Stevia is the only one that is permissible - BEWARE: some brands add sugar to improve the flavor, so check the label, make sure it really is sugar free.

Arrange My Fridge

Before you go to bed tonight, pull out a portion of chicken breast fillet and fish for tomorrow’s dinner.

Prepare Food in Advance

If you want to get organized for tomorrow, you can get your Skinny Chicken Waldorf cracking tonight. Once the steamed chicken cools down, you need to tear it up into little skinny strips with your hands. Skinny Chicken Waldorf is eaten cold as a salad with finely diced celery and apple. Don’t prepare the apple until you are ready to eat it though because once it’s cut it starts to go brown.
