HCG Patch

This recipe is a fantastic break from things such is P2 Chili.   Make a big batch and split it equally based on the number of portions of ground beef you added.

Makes 4 Servings
16 oz ground beef *  Use 95% or 96% lean for P2  or 85% lean for P3(grass fed if possible)
1 28 oz can diced organic tomatoes (or 5-6 Roma diced)
2 cups low sodium organic beef or chicken broth
1 1/2 packets stevia or 1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
2 tablespoons chili powder
Chili flakes to taste (spicy 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 lb. fresh baby spinach

1)Brown beef in medium high pan for 3-5 minutes. Use a paper towel to pat out excess fat.
2)Add all spices and 1/2 salt
3)Add tomatoes, broth and stevia, stir bottom of pan. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low for 3-4 minutes.
4)Pick stems off spinach (optional). I do this as I'm adding it to the chili.
Add spinach a couple cups at a time. Stir to incorporate. Just wilt, do not cook.
Turn off heat and serve!

Each serving is 280 calories with chicken broth and 85% lean beef. Should you use 95% lean beef, each serving is 240 calories! Packed with flavor and a very sustaining meal! 

In P3, garnish with fresh cilantro, avocado and sour cream.

  ½ head of cabbage, chopped
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup white or yellow onion, diced
1 cup carrots, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken broth
14 oz can basil, oregano, garlic diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
few shakes of black pepper
½ teaspoon salt (optional)

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add celery, onions, bell peppers, and carrots.
Saute until slightly tender.
Stir in garlic.

So here is a brief overview of the 7 Day Cabbage Soup diet plan.

Remember: This diet should only be followed for 7 days at a time, with at least two weeks in between.

Day One: Fruit: Eat all of the fruit you want (except bananas). Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. For drinks- unsweetened teas, cranberry juice and water. (I had coffee, no cream or sugar).

Day Two: Vegetables: Eat until you are stuffed will all fresh, raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. Try to eat leafy green vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup. At dinner, reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter. Do not eat fruit today.

Day Three: Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want. No Baked Potato.

Day Four: Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets.

Day Five: Beef or Chicken And Tomatoes: Ten to twenty ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day. You may eat broiled or baked chicken instead of beef (but absolutely no skin-on chicken). If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for beef on one of the beef days (but not both).

Day Six: Beef and Vegetables: Eat to your heart’s content beef or skinless chicken and vegetables this day. You can have 2 or 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green vegetables. No Baked Potato. Eat your soup at least once.

Day Seven: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables: Again stuff, stuff, stuff yourself. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day.

Stick With The Cabbage Soup Diet For 7 Days…And Look Amazing Later, Too!

Be sure to eat your soup at least once to day.

No bread, alcohol, or carbonated beverages, not even diet soda.

R6 Phase 2 Day 23

Weight - 133.6

No loss today.  That's okay.  At least there's not been a rebound.  My calories were on the low side tonight so I did have some chocolate delight in the evening.  That adds about 200 calories of fat that is used by the liver rather than normal means.

Lunch - (193 calories)
100 g beef eye of round roast
150 g cucumber
100 g tomato
P2 dressing
1 grissini stick

Dinner - (139 calories)
1.5 portions of Shredded Tex-Mex Crock-Pot Chicken
100 g romaine lettuce for wraps

Shredded Tex-Mex Crock-Pot Chicken

This recipe comes from TKSinclair's Blog.  The original recipe was made for use in the 17 Day Diet Cycle 1.  I have modified it for Phase 2 purposes.  The original calls for 1 tbsp of oil to saute the onions.  Instead I added a bit of chicken broth.

Don't forget to weigh your chicken raw to calculate the number of servings you will have when done.  ie 1000 g of chicken would be 10 servings.  Weight the finished product and divide by the number of servings to get your P2 portion weight.

Serves 4
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup (packed) cilantro leaves, chopped
2 limes
1 large onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil  **Not in P2


**(Heat the oil in a medium sized sauté pan)  If for Phase 2 of hcg, heat a couple of tbsp of chicken broth or water. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the cumin, chili powder, coriander, paprika and garlic and sauté two more minutes. Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth making sure to scrape up any browned bits. Turn off and set aside.

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Add to crock pot. Squeeze the lime on top, add the cilantro, jalapeno, and pour the onion and garlic mixture over top.

Cook on low for 3-5 hours, or until cooked through (different crock-pots cook at varying heats) and tender. Remove chicken breasts from the crock pot, shred and place in a bowl. Scoop out the onions and add to the chicken. Depending on the amount of juices produced, you may want to add some or all of the juice back to the shredded chicken.

Kitchen Tip: To easily juice the lime, heat in the microwave for a few seconds and then roll it on the counter top a few times like you are kneading it. Then slice in half and squeeze. Or use a hand juicer.
Recipe Note: You could also prepare this recipe in a pressure cooker.  Cook for about 12 minutes on high pressure.

R6 Phase 2 Day 22

Weight - 133.6

Well, that's something new.  All prepared for a rebound after 2 lbs yesterday and I get another .8 loss.  Amazing.  Could it be that the rx was just not what my body needed and the MyHCGWay Patches?  I know when I did a planned interruption last round and came back on with the patches, it really kick-started the losses.  This time I switched over from injections to the patch with a couple of days overlap.  Now that the rx is out of my system, suddenly I've lost 2.8 lbs in two days.

Lunch - (210 calories)
100 g beef eye of round roast
160 g romaine
P2 mustard dressing
110 g apple

Dinner - (244 calories)
**P2 Egg Salad & Greek Yogurt
1 large egg, hardboiled and smashed
1 tbsp dill relish
2 tsp mustard
227 g Kirkland Signature Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
100 g strawberries

I had to check the scale several times this morning.  2 lbs?  and in the right direction.  I'm fully braced for rebound tomorrow.
