OK! So I have been very very naughty and totally went out side of my maintenance with lots of wine and food heheheh and went up a few pounds.. I am happy to say after some corrective days I am maintaining at 119-121!!! I think, sometimes we just see food and think OMG let me have it all. But remember this is the thing that got you into trouble in the first place... I think it is important to splurge and treat your self.. Otherwise what is life without indulging one's self? I think the true thing is to totally enjoy the moment, but know that you will also do something about it. Too many times I see people just continue on this downward spiral and your self pity wants to kick in. I would like to encourage you to just always have the mindset of getting back to the spirit of you! And know that with HCG you now have options. Thank goodness to Dr Simeons for figuring out corrective steak days.. Plan these when you plan to over indulge.
Always wondered why steak days on breaks?
Always wondered why apple days on stalls??
Ok here is my two bits... Well sometimes when we overindulge, we are taking in lots of fats carbs and salt... Having loads of liquids will help sort out water retention. And missing a meal and carbs all day will help you burn up what you took in the day before so you are not storing up too much glucose in the body. We know that our bodies run nicely on fat. So eliminating the carbs even for a day will help to trigger a corrective response. I a m sure there is science here at play but oh well. I studied art, so POOO! Again these are only my thoughts that I share, not cold hard facts.
Apple days help us release water retention. There is not much to say on this, except for the fact that I just learned that apples have been known throughout history to help release fluid that is retained in tissues temporarily! Woot, I have to figure out why??? Also when doing apple days, the more apples you have (close to six) the more water you will release... If you only have 1-3, I am afraid you wont see too much of a woosh. Trust me.. tried and true!
Also, something pretty cool you could do to get out of a stall... Works EVERY TIME! and I actually try to do this every few days when I am on hcg. IT IS CALLED THE MINI STEAK DAY. You pretty much have your dosage, have lots of water, tea and such and at around 4 pm (cause i can never wait until 6 pm) you have a 4 oz steak with a raw apple.. I even have a raw tomato as well and sure enough, I am usually down more than a pound. WOOT, only draw back? It doesn't work two days in a row.
