finished round 1 question about phase 3

Hi, I did fabulous on round 1- I stopped at 23 days(last day Monday this week). because I am going away to Disney the end of the month and wanted to be through phase 3 before I go which seemed easier for my trip to Disney world! I lost 16 lbs and 20.5 inches (I measured on Saturday so not at end of round 1). and that is why they say pounds and inches!! So my question for phase 3 are you allowed to have eggs? I truly miss my omelet (veggies with no cheese) on the weekends! I also loved packing a hard boiled egg for a high protein snack during the day sometimes. I get fresh eggs from my free range chickens and they are fed very well ....I just don't see anything about them unless I missed it in the ebook. In the e-book it says maintenance calories 800. Is that the total for the day or a minimum amount? My goal this time with my Hcg is to really stick with the plan /guidelines for Phase 3... in the past I did some cheating, indulging and I am thinking that is why I put half of my weight loss back on over a year.... thanks so much Sue

Hi EllieSue. Phase 3 calorie range is between 800-1000 typically. This varies depending on your weight fluctuation each day. Eggs, vegetables, and even cheese sparingly is acceptable on Phase 3. No carbs and sugars are allowed. Best of luck to you. Carolyn Cannon, RN Nu Image Medical

I am in a strangely similar situation with Disney World. I'm planning on doing a short (23) day round so I have time to stableize before going on vacation, then continuing when I return. How did this work out for you?

Hi Becky, You may certainly have eggs on Phase 3. You may also have any kind of vegetable, fruit, nut, etc. and in larger amounts that in the 500 calorie phase. There are may foods that you can eat on Phase 3 that are not allowed in Phase 2. The only foods you may not have are those that contain starch and sugars. For example, corn or oatmeal. The 800 calories is a minimum requirement that you must eat each day on Phase 3. This is not the maximum. As your weight stabilizes during the 21 days, you will find that you can add more foods in without weight gain. The key is to focus on protein and make sure to get in an adequate number of calories each day. (Remember, there is no HCG in your system at this point). Many times, patients tend to continue to under eat on Phase 3 because they are scared to add food or perhaps want to lose more. Doing this almost always proves disappointing. If your food choices and calories are correct, and you stay within the 2 lb range (by doing a steak day if you go up) then you should have no problems maintaining your new weight loss. I hope this information helps. Enjoy your trip to Disney World! Carolyn Cannon, RN Nu Image Medical
