The HCG Diet Steak Day is used when you hit a plateau point or stall in your weight loss during the HCG Diet. Most people who do the HCG Diet will get to a point where they stall or will stop losing weight for a few days in a row. This period is known as a plateau and can be overcome by completing a Steak day. A stall consists of 4 days without losing weight. When you hit the plateau most people worry that they have done the diet wrong or messed up somehow. Do not worry as a stall is very normal and can happen even if you follow the hCG diet protocol to perfection. Knowing that plateaus are normal on the HCG Diet, knowing what to do, and taking action to get back on the “weight loss train” will have you set up for success right from square one. The best way to get over a stall or plateau is a Steak Day. Dr.Simeons, the creator of the HCG Diet, talks about doing the Steak Day for Phase 3, however, most hCG dieters use the Steak Day for Phase 2 to get over a stall. How to break a plateau using a Steak Day1. Drink 8-12 glasses of water.2. For dinner, eat a steak the size of your hand. That is all it takes. Do Not eat for the entire day and have a steak for dinner and then the pounds will start melting off again. Steak Day works by giving your body a shock. Your body most likely has adapted to the diet plan you are eating on and you need to send your body a curveball to keep that metabolism melting those pounds away.

What should Vegetarians and Vegans do?
Great question..continue to take the HCG drops but limit food and liquids to six large apples and water. The apples can be eaten at any time. Water should be limited to only what is needed to satisfy thirst. I also recommend drinking a lot of caffeinated black coffee or Tea with no sugar or milk.. That should get you going. However if this does not work then go with An HCG Diet Egg Day>>
You are allowed to eat a total of 12 whole eggs and nothing else throughout the course of the entire day. Drink about 4 quarts of water. This is another way to shock your body into action. Hope this helps!
Really 12 whole eggs? What size?
isn’t that quite a bit of fat? i.e. 5g fat per egg x 12 = 60 grams of fat?
Yes that is a lot of fat. The egg day is meant to shock your body out of the plateau and it has worked for a few vegetarians that I know of. However, I recommend the apple day first and if that doesn’t kick the plateau then move to the egg day.
We are just into day one of Phase 3. After a 3 egg breakfast and half a cup of fruit we are still stuffed at 1 o’clock. Do we have to eat or can we just have a snack (tuna and tomato) and then have a proper meal for dinner?
Also, is there a list of the different foods with the accompnying calories per 100 grams?
