But due to the nature of the beast, while on the HCG Maintenance Phase, consuming that delectable slab of meat is preceded by the unwelcome discovery that you’ve gained over 2 lbs. since your last HCG drops weigh-in. And that is never a fun discovery. But it is fixable as long as you have the guts to weigh every morning
What is a Steak Day
A Steak Day is simply to drink lots of water throughout the day then for dinner consume a large steak along with an apple or a tomato.
I know that part of the science behind it is that the protein helps your body release excess fluids, but for me I have also found a healthy mental aspect to it as well. It reminds me that I am in control of my body and not the other way around.
Often times I can get a little carried away with snacking, I allow myself to give into temptation and become very self indulgent with my wants vs. my needs. This inevitably leads to the need for a steak day. Steak days have a balancing effect on me; making me overcome that ever present ‘natural man’ and it puts me back in control over my eating, which is a vital place to be!
After my steak day I lose 2 lbs. and go back to eating normal (minus the unhealthy snacking).
What about a Double Steak Day
I’m embarrassed to admit that sometimes the damage I do in one day cannot be undone in one day. Meaning that even after losing 2 lbs. I still have one or two more lbs. to go in order to reach my last HCG drops weight. I’ve never read about doubling up on steak days, and I am in no way giving medical advice here, I am simply sharing my own experience of what I have found works.
I double up.
I know that some people, for health reasons, cannot go long without consuming calories. I am not one of those people. I also know other people who feel really crappy on their steak days. They lose energy and feeling fatigued. Fortunately, I am not one of those people either. I feel great most of the time, have energy even in the middle of my steak days, and feel satisfied afterwards. Heck, I like steak. So when I realized that I still needed to drop another pound after having just participated in a steak day, I boldly did another one the next day.
It worked. Preferably, I never want to be in such a position of losing such control over myself that I overindulge to such an extent, but the truth is that sometimes I do exactly that and I have been grateful for the effectiveness of ‘steak days’.
Good luck! Has anyone else experienced this?
