HCG Phase 2 (fat loss phase): Apple day!

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Why did Dr Simeon’s come up with an apple day for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet…

Surely if someone is following the protocol:  RFM HCG Drops (available from New Leaf), eating correctly, then the weight should just fall off, right?  Well – not exactly.  The apple day seems to take any mistakes away – and helps to eliminate a build-up of fluid in the body.   There are reasons for weight stalling:

  1. mistakes in food intake:  re-check your allowable foods – proteins, vegetables, fruits and starches.
  2. drink plenty of water.  Sometimes the body is detoxifying so quickly throughout this process that the body stores fluid to ‘dilute’ the toxins.
  3. drink plenty of herbal teas.  Herbal teas not only add fluid to the body, but are nutritious and beneficial medicinally as well.
  4. weight loss stalling is often due to fluid retention – but it can also be moisturisers, incorrect supplements, marbled fat throughout the proteins (no more than 1 x red meat per day) etc
  5. as fat cells start to ’empty’ sometimes they will ‘fill with fluid’ again before the fat cells are dissolved and released into the bloodstream

What is an apple day??

  1. if you wake up and are unhappy with a stall in weightloss, you can do an apple day.  Or if you have a VLA bio-impedance analysis check at New Leaf, and your fat mass has gone up, you need an apple day.
  2. it means that you wake up, as normal, and drink water and herbal teas until lunchtime and then have up to 6 apples for the rest of the day.  Eat as little as necessary to quench thirst and hunger, remember to take your drops.
  3. apples help to sop up toxins and fluid, remove fat completely from the diet for a day, remove starches completely from the diet for a day – thereby eliminating some of the major reasons for a stall in weightloss.
