I agree that cheating is not a good thing on hCG. And I do think that you will gain fat from a cheat much more quickly than if you were to eat those same foods off of hCG. Ie. chocolate cake off hCG might give you a .2 gain, but chocolate cake ON hCG might give you a 1 lb gain. It’s crazy stuff. That said, I don’t believe in scaring people into thinking that cheating will ruin their entire course on the diet or maintenance after. I just don’t think it’s that drastic. I have had at least one cheat I think on most of my rounds, and I managed to stabilize and maintain my weight loss. I did indeed gain from the actual cheat, and it took some days to start losing again, which was totally not worth the cheat true, but once the cheat was behind me, I do not feel it hampered my long term results, if that makes sense – and this is coming from someone who maintained her weight loss between rounds, and now almost 3 years after my last round. So don’t beat yourself up over those mistakes and fear super long term consequences. I think our bodies are quite resilient and if you do the logical things to get back on track, your body will get back on track too.
