Bridge from the hCG diet to Normal Eating

1. Count calories. Use a calorie counting application on your phone, or look up calories online and write them in your planner.
2. Go over the maintenance plan.
3. If you can’t follow the maintenance plan exactly, then plan out what you may eat if you are going to cheat. Would you add a fruit? Add a protein? Both? Planning out foods you will eat if you are hungry will help you not to overindulge.
4. Eat three meals a day and two snacks. Don’t eat after dinner, as you may be tempted to eat treats. We have found that to begin to discipline your mind to maintain your weight loss, we recommend that you eat by the clock. Eat breakfast at before 8:00 am, lunch at 12:00-1:00 pm, and dinner before 7:00 pm. Make your snack fewer than 100 calories.
5. Weigh yourself daily at the same time, in the same clothes, with the same scale. Average your weights for the week and compare to the previous week. Daily weights can change due to water retention, do don’t rely on daily comparisons.
