You’ve enjoyed the loading phase (who doesn’t?), you’ve endured the very low calorie phase, and now you’re triumphantly in phase 3. You’ve made it, and now you just have to keep the weight you’ve lost off.
But when you check your weight in the morning, you notice something that makes you scream: you’ve gained some weight! What happened? Wasn’t all that dieting supposed to make you lose weight and keep it off?
As it turns out, you might be making a little mistake that keeps many phase 3 dieters from meeting their diet goals. In fact, this mistake could be causing you to cheat without you even knowing it!
So what’s this big secret? Filling your new diet with the right food. Keep reading to learn more (and discover a tip to help you when the temptation to cheat strikes).
Empty Calories, Empty Stomach
Have you ever noticed how soon you feel hungry again after eating junk food? Or the rush of energy and accompanying crash after a candy bar? That’s because those foods are mostly empty calories, not nutrition.
So what’s the big deal? Well, you’re basically filling yourself up with everything except what you really need – nutrients. When you eat nutrient-rich food, you’ll feel full faster and stay satisfied longer. This helps keep hunger pangs at bay and makes it easier to stay within the 1500 calorie per day requirement of phase 3 on the HCG Diet.
Choose Nutrient-Rich Food
The secret to choosing food that will keep you from cheating is to choose nutrient-rich foods. The good news is the HCG Diet protocol is full of foods that are rich in nutrients, vitamins, fiber and more. Fiber is shown to quickly reduce appetite, and having vitamins and minerals in your diet will naturally reduce your desire for unhealthy foods.
Get a Little Extra Help
If you’re eating lots of fruits and veggies but still find yourself fighting off cravings, get your hands on some Appetite Control capsules. They’ll give you more power to overcome cravings, manage your appetite, boost your metabolism and more. That’s right – Appetite Control capsules help you burn more fat while beating hunger. Simply take 1 capsule twice a day, and it’ll be easier to stay on protocol and maintain your weight loss.
Eating food rich in nutrients and vitamins isn’t rocket science – it’s all included and explained in the HCG Diet protocol. Focus on adding healthy, low-calorie, high-fiber foods to your diet – and don’t hesitate to get some Appetite Control capsules for extra help – and you’ll avoid the little mistake many phase 3 dieters make: filling up on empty calories.
