So, you are done with the hCG diet.....
You have been successful and followed the program all the way through and still concerned you may gain weight back. Not to worry, as long as you have followed all the phases of the diet and locked in that weight loss you will be fine providing you have not fallen back into your old habits.
Remember when you did the maintenance phase of the program and added in one starch per day in week one and then two a day in week two and three in week three? Use that as your guide to keep the weight off. Only add in the amount of starches per day your body can tolerate with out weight gain.
