HCG Final week, Week 3 of Stage 2

This last week has been a rough one. Jose’ and I have had to lift each other up on more than one occasion…but the results of our efforts have paid off and we both are so close to goal! He has lost a total of 15.8 lbs! 4 lbs to goal…I’m standing at 9 lbs lost! With 2 lbs to goal. Go us!

So here comes week 3, the final week of Stage 2. I have been doing my best to keep the recipes interesting, tasty and varied. And trust me that is no easy task.

Because we have seen results fast, we now have to plan to move to the next stage, Stage 3, to set our weight and keep the results permanent. At Stage 3, we get to work out again! Something I’ve missed a lot. There is a final Stage 4 that is the lifetime plan.

I have half a dozen or so links to Paleo recipes/blogs…and I am researching how to best modify our old family favorites to meet this goal. Here are my top 3 links:

As I said in the beginning it’s a lifestyle, not a diet. The HCG just gives it the kick start.
So…the following is this week’s wonderful meal plan! Enjoy!

****LOTS OF WATER and Green Tea***
And We’re done! Once we finish out this week. Next week we move towards Stage 3…where we can have ANY and EVERY fresh fruit, vegetable (except white potatoes) or lean cuts of any meats that include chicken, beef or pork. That includes yummy Salmon and Catfish. And of course the addition of healthy oils, like extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and butter; all in moderation!
We will continue to avoid anything ‘white’ for 3 weeks like flour, sugar, rice, pasta and bread. I will continue to avoid most of those, unless they are gluten free, forever.
Next week! Stand by for some delicious alternatives! I miss real food. But I love the results!
