The purpose of the maintenance phase is to allow your body to
stabilize to your new weight. In order to do this, you should follow the maintenance plan exactly, adding in more foods to
allow your body to stabilize at your new weight.
When you stop taking the drops, you need to continue the diet for another
three days. At the end of the three days, you can start eating anything you please, EXCEPT sugar and starch, provided
you faithfully observe one simple rule. This rule is that you must have your own scale always at hand, particularly while
traveling. You must weigh every morning as you get out of bed, without clothes, after having emptied your bladder, before
breakfast or liquids of any kind.
It takes approximately 3 weeks before the weight reached at the end of the
treatment becomes stable. For example, it does not show violent fluctuations after an occasional excess. During this period
you must realize that carbohydrates, meaning: SUGAR, RICE, BREAD, POTATOES, PASTRIES, etc are by far the most dangerous and
i would watch for hidden sugars in foods, stay away from them. If no carbohydrates are consumed, fats can be indulged
somewhat more liberally and even small quantities of alcohol, such as a glass of wine with meals, will do no harm. When fats
and starches are combined, weight gain can get out of hand. This has to be observed very carefully during the first 3 weeks
after the treatment is ended otherwise weight gain is very likely.
Weight gain of more than 2 lbs in one day:
As long as your weight stays within 2 pounds of the weight reached on the
day of the last dose, you should take no notice of any increase, but the moment the scale goes beyond two pounds, even if
this is only a few ounces, you must on that same day entirely skip breakfast and lunch but take plenty to drink. In the evening
eat a huge steak and 1 apple or 1 raw tomato – nothing else.
It is of utmost importance that this is done on the day the scale goes above
2 pounds and not postponed until the following day. If a meal is skipped on the day in which a gain is registered in the morning,
this brings about an immediate drop of often over a pound. But if the skipping of the meal (and skipping means literally skipping,
not just having a light meal) is postponed, the phenomenon does not occur and several days of strict dieting may be necessary
to correct the situation.
Most people hardly ever need to do this and if they have eaten a heavy lunch
they feel no desire to eat their dinner, and in this case no increase takes place. If they keep their weight at the point
reached at the end of the treatment, even a heavy dinner does not bring about an increase of two pounds on the next morning,
and does not therefore call for any special measures. You may be surprised at how small your appetite becomes! And actually
how much you can get away with eating and not gaining a pound! You will find that you are much more satisfied with less food
to eat! In fact, many people are usually disappointed that they cannot manage their first normal meal, which they have been
Losing more weight:
If you have not reached your desired weight after the first cycle of
you can do 2 cycles back to back. After your second cycle, then you can go into your maintenance stage.
Beware of over-enthusiasm
After treatment has ended, most people are afraid to begin adding foods back
into their diets, afraid they may gain weight. If you do not begin to add foods back in again, the opposite may actually occur
and you may gain unwanted weight. So make sure you begin to add some of the foods again.
Many people think that this is unnecessary to weigh daily and that they can
judge an increase from the fit of their clothes. Some do not carry their scale with them while traveling, as it is cumbersome
and takes a big bite out of their luggage allowance when flying. This is a disastrous mistake, because after a course as
much as 10 lbs can be regained without any noticeable change in the fit of their clothes. The reason for this is that after
treatment newly acquired fat is first evenly distributed and does not show the former preference for certain body parts.
Pregnancy or menopause may annul the effects of a previous treatment. Women
who take the treatment during one year after the last menstruation – that is, the onset of menopause – do just
as well as others, but among them the relapse rate is higher until the menopause is fully established. The period of one year
after the last menstruation applies only to women who are not being treated with ovarian hormones. If these are taken, the
pre-menopausal period may be indefinitely prolonged.
If you experience weight gain, coming back for a second course of drops is
completely acceptable. Repeat courses are often even more satisfactory than the first treatment and have the advantage that
you already know that you will feel comfortable throughout treatment.
