HCG Diet – Apple Day
The HCG Diet helps patients lose weight through the combination of a very-low-calorie-diet (VLCD) and injections of HCG. The metabolism human body can be a formidable enemy when it comes to weight loss though, and some patients will encounter a stall in their weight loss while on stage 2. When this happens, we recommend doing an “apple day.”
If your weight has remained the same for three or four days, you should do an “apple day”.
An apple day begins at lunch and continues until just before lunch of the following day. You are allowed six large apples and are to eat one whenever you feel the desire.
But remember, six apples is the maximum allowed. During the apple day no other food or liquids except plain water is allowed, and you should only drink just enough to quench your uncomfortable thirst. An apple day should not be done on the day on which there is no injection (a “skip” day).
The apple day will produce a gratifying loss of weight on the following day, chiefly due to the elimination of water. This water is not regained when you resume your normal 500 calorie diet at lunch and on the following day and you will continue to lose weight satisfactorily.
