You should discontinue your HCG dose under any one of the following conditions:
1. Itís been 21 days or more on maintenance phase and you have reached your goal weight.
2. It's been 40 days on Maintenance Phase.
3.You have lost 34 pounds (15kgs) on maintenance phase.
You should move on to the phase III, i.e., stabilization phase. You donít need to stick to 500 cal per day diet any more & can consume up to 800 to 1000 calories per day, but avoid sugar and starch. The Stabilization phase takes care of rebound weight gain & is very important step of HCG Diet Protocol which cannot be skipped.
