Overcoming a weight loss stall
When stalls happen be aware but do not get alarmed or discouraged. It is natural and they happen to everyone. Stay focused and remember these tips to get yourself past them.
Basic Troubleshooting for A Stall on our HCG Diet
If you encounter a stall on our HCG Diet for a couple of days, review what you ate and make sure that you didn’t eat something that was off protocol. If you did, you don’t need to do anything to break your stall unless it lasts for more than three days. Usually a stall that is the result of a cheat only lasts for a couple of days before it corrects itself automatically.
During A Set Point
A plateau can
also occur when you reach a former level of weight you were at for some time.
This one can last even longer but will always correct itself. Go by how you
feel. I have never gone beyond a 7-day plateau without doing an apple day or
above protocol which always seems to get the scale going in the right
During Your Menstrual Cycle
For woman they will also usually see a plateau or even an increase a few days before and during their period. This is still due to the body retaining water. This is water weight and it will correct itself. Stick to the diet!
Breaking your stall:
So, once you established if you have reached a stall then you can do either an apple or a steak day. Read more on how to do a steak an apple day below.
The Apple Day
An apple day is when you each 6 apples in a 24-hour period. Begin at breakfast and eat 2 apples then 2 apples for lunch and 2 apples for dinner, if you are still hungry you can have a whole bag off apples. Granny Smith apples are the best, for weight loss but you can have any apple you fancy. Drink water, ONLY TO QUENCH YOUR THIRST throughout that day. Then, the next day, AFTER YOU WEIGH, you continue phase 2 as normal.
The Steak Day
A Steak Day consists of not eating anything until dinner (drink plenty of coffee, tea and water). For dinner you would have a large steak with either one apple or one raw tomato. The reason you would do a Steak Day during is if you are stalled more than 3 days and you want to try and break the stall. A Steak Day is not advised to be used every day just to reach your weight loss goal. So, you will only do an apple or a steak day if you are 100% sure that you have reached a stall.
