Stay Motivated With These HCG Maintenance Breakfast Recipes
While dieting with HCG, only coffee or tea is recommended for breakfast because the HCG allows your body to pull the additional calories it requires to function directly from your excess fat. By skipping breakfast you are not depriving your body of those needed calories. However, when the HCG is out of your system, (72 hours after your last drop) breakfast becomes the most important meal of the day. If you wish to maintain your weight loss take note of these HCG maintenance breakfast recipes. Many breakfast foods however, do contain sugars and starches so it is important that you tailor breakfast to the HCG maintenance protocol of no sugars and starches which means no toast, cereal or starchy fruits such as bananas. These will help you figure out how to keep the weight off after the HCG diet.
