MY HCG DIET - Steak Day
During the stabilization phase a slight rise of weight is natural. Dr. Simeons’, in his “Pounds and Inches” has mentioned about the ‘Steak Day’ to deal with the sudden weight gain during phase 3 . It is recommended that the dieter weighs him or herself everyday in the morning and if there is a gain of more than two pounds over the weight of his last maintenance day, he or she should immediately go for some weight correction. ‘Steak day’ is an effective technique for such purpose.
WHAT IS A STEAK DAY?
During the steak day, the dieter has to keep fast for the whole day. He has to skip his breakfast and lunch. In the dinner, the dieter is given to eat a large steak cooked in oil or butter with an apple or a raw tomato. The dieter is advised to drink plenty of water and other fluids during the day.
VEGATERIAN ALTERNATIVE TO A STEAK DAY
People who don’t eat meat have some alternative options for the ‘Steak Day’. The vegetarians can go for non-flavored pea protein powder burgers-with quinoa, and something to bind it. Tofutti sour cream can be a good binder, with olive oil, and seasoning mix without sugar. Otherwise, you can use olive oil, (or coconut oil), and liquid smoke, seasoning, and organic salsa. Miracle noodles/ magic noodles can be another option. You can make soup of it with tomato.
HOW TO PREPARE THE STEAK
The preparation of the steak is not very tough. Take care that the steak used is fresh enough. The whole process of preparation is discussed below.
During the second phase of the diet plan, the dieter continuously loses weight. However when the dieter steps into the third phase, he or she gains some weight as soon as he stops the 500 calorie diet. In case the gain crosses 2 pounds, the dieter should go for “steak day” that day itself. Within 24 hours, a remarkable drop in the weight can be observed.
