P2 Stabilization Tutorial

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Congratulations! You made it through P1!  

You are on the home run. P2 Stabilization lasts 21 days. You can eat anything in any quantity… EXCEPT

NO starchy carbohydrate rice, bread, potatoes, pasta, pizza, pastry, noodles, and anything that has flour or starch in it such as pies, cakes, cookies, crisps, chips, French fries, sauces, soups etc.

NO sugar in any form including table sugar, honey, maple syrup, glucose, high fructose corn syrup, maltose, dextrose and anything that has sugar in it such as most processed, packaged, preserved and canned foods, commercial beverages including fruit juice or flavored milk – even plain low fat milk has sugar in it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13083" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13084" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Fruit is high in fructose. Limit yourself to a ‘normal’ amount during P2. This means two to three servings of fresh fruit per day – e.g. 1 apple and 1 large banana, OR a handful of grapes OR cherries and 1 kiwi fruit.

Avoid dried fruit e.g. sultanas and dates until P3 due to the concentrated sugars. Canned fruit is prohibited until P3 because it has added sugar.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]There is a big green light on fat now - oil, butter, cream, cheese, animal fat coconut milk and cream are all ok. But to establish your new ‘weight-set-point’, your brain needs a rest from sugar and starchy carbohydrate. Having carbs together with fat at this stage causes wild fluctuations in your weight so even grissini sticks or Melba toasts are NOT allowed in P2.

You will resume eating normal calories mainly from protein, fat, unsweetened dairy, fruits, vegetables and pulses - but of course no starchy vegetables - potatoes or grains.

Calorie counting is not necessary because your brain will tell you when you have had enough. You will be satisfied with less food than before because you now have less body weight to maintain.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13085" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13086" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Approximately 70 percent of HCG dieters have little difficulty maintaining their new lower weight. By strictly following the P2 no starchy carbs or sugar rule, you will most likely be one of them.

WARNING: DO NOT continue dieting

If you diet further immediately after come off P1 it may cause your weight to go up!! If that happens see the P2/3 Troubleshooting slideshow.

If you need to lose more weight, be patient, you can do another round of the HCG Diet after your brain has had the chance to stabilize this round's new lower weight.

First this round’s 'weight-set-point' needs to stabilize within 1 kg (2 lbs) of the weight you achieve on the 'last weight day' (LWD).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Continue to weigh yourself every day without fail and record it in online. You have to stay within 1 kg (2 lbs) of your LWD.

If your weight increases by more than 1 kg (2 lbs) you MUST do a Steak Day. On the day the scales register the increase you cannot eat anything whatsoever until dinner when you have a big fat juicy beef steak and either a raw tomato or apple.

The following morning you will achieve a drop in weight of ½ kg (1 lb) or more.

NOTE: People who don’t eat beef may experience the same benefit by substituting the steak with a large amount of salmon.

For further information about doing a Steak Day see the P2/3 Troubleshooting slideshow.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13068" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13087" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]In P2 you CAN eat:
