P3 Maintenance Tutorial

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]You are almost there!

Over the next 21 days you may eat anything you please at all BUT you need to re-introduce starchy carbohydrates and sugars slowly.

Do it one carb or sugar at a time so you can identify what effect they have on your body weight. It is essential that you weigh yourself every morning as you have been doing, before eating or drinking anything, after emptying your bladder and bowel, naked and with dry hair. Keep logging your weight so you can observe any patterns. For instance you might find that you increase weight a little on the weekends but drop back down during the week.

So long as you do not go above 1 kg (2 lbs) of your LWD there is no need to take action.

But if you do, you must do a Steak Day pronto. For more information see the P2/P3 Trouble Shooting slide show.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13054" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13055" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Ok back to P3 and reintroduction of starchy carbs and sugar.

Let’s say you are European, you will be hanging out for bread or maybe pasta. Try either of them on Day 1 of P3. Then see what the next day’s weight is. Did it rise or was it stable?

If you are a native English speaker you might be desperate for potato. So give that a go. What happens the next day? Most people find their main staple carbohydrate does not affect their weight adversely.

People of Asian or Middle Eastern background will be dreaming about rice.

Whatever you are, try all these staples one day at a time: bread, pasta, potato, rice, noodles, pastry and honey or sugar.

Check your weight the following morning and continue to record it in your Skinny Profile every day.

Because there is quite a bit of bad publicity about starchy carbohydrate and many so-called diet experts recommend they be avoided, some HCG dieters are worried about eating them again.

Please don’t avoid them. They are not ‘bad’ foods. It is really important to eat a balanced diet of protein, carbohydrate and fat. You need all these elements so your body can function properly.

The golden rule of thumb is the less refining the better. It will have fewer additives, higher nutritional value and more fiber which keeps your bowels moving and you healthy.

If you have been a white rice eater for all your life, try brown rice. If you or the family can’t stomach it straight up, do ½ and ½. Gradually you will develop a taste for it.

Also, if you are used to sweetener in beverages such as tea or coffee, try to wean yourself off it. Gradually cut back until you take it without sugar altogether. As motivation, if you haven’t already seen it, watch Sugar: The Bitter Truth in the video gallery.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]As you re-introduce the carbohydrates you might find that one or two of them don’t really agree with you. If a food causes the scales to go up you might need to consider reducing the quantity or avoiding it altogether. If wheat products cause you a problem for instance that might make bread, pasta, pizza and pastry a no-no. Try rye bread, sour dough or flat bread (sometimes called Lebanese bread).

Does that work for you? If not, you might want to look into whether you are wheat intolerant, have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), leaky gut, Candida, Crohn’s or celiac disease. More information about various health conditions such as these can be seen in the Eat Right For Health tab Condition slide shows.

Once you have tried all the different carbs one day at a time, then try having two of them in a day and see whether it tips the scales.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13058" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="13059" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]So, have you won the battle of the bulge?

If you still need to lose a few pounds and inches, stabilize first, wait a while and then do another round. After the end of the 21 days of P3 allow …

6 weeks between Round 1 and Round 2

8 weeks between Round 2 and Round 3

12 weeks between Round 3 and Round 4

20 weeks between Round 4 and Round 5

26 weeks between Round 5 and Round 6[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="10831" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]
