Phase 3 Correction Day
What Is A Steak Day?
As long as your weight stays within two pounds of the weight reached on the day of the last injection, you should take no notice of any increase except when the scale goes beyond two pounds. Even if only a few ounces, you must, on that same day, entirely skip breakfast and lunch but drink plenty to water. In the evening you must eat a huge steak with only an apple or a raw tomato. Of course this rule applies only to the morning weight. Ex-obese patients should never check their weight during the day, as there may be wide fluctuations and these are merely alarming and confusing.
It is of utmost importance that the meal is skipped on the same day as the scale registers an increase of more than two pounds and that missing the meals is 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 patients hardly ever need to a steak day. If you keep your weight at the point reached at the end of the treatment, even a heavy dinner will not bring about an increase of two pounds on the next morning and will not therefore call for any special measures. You will be surprised how small your appetite has become and yet how much you can eat without gaining weight. You no longer suffer from an abnormal appetite and feel satisfied with much less food than before. In fact, you are usually disappointed that you cannot manage your first normal meal, which you have been planning for weeks.
