Apple Day on an HCG Diet
An Apple Day on an HCG Diet can break a stall. An HCG Diet stall as others call it plateau happens from 3 to 4 days where you are not losing weight. Some dieters don’t really understand how an HCG Diet Apple Day works, so we answer some of your questions about Apple Days.
AN HCG Diet Apple Day may sound simple enough. However, it is very important for you to understand exactly when it is needed. It is also very important that you know how to do an apple day correctly so it can work properly.
What is Apple Day for?
Apple days are not actually for faster weight loss. It’s a stall breaker you’re having on the HCG Diet. If your weight has stalled for 1-2 days, that’s not a stall but if you woke up on the third day at the same exact weight then that’s the time you have to do an Apple Day.
When should I begin my Apple Day?
Begin your Apple day on the third day where you’ve woken up having the same exact weight. Remember that an Apple Day should only be done when a true plateau or stall has happened. So, it’s vital for you to understand what an HCG Diet stall mean. An HCG Diet stall is 3 to 4 consecutive days without noticeable weight loss in inches or on the scale. Don’t eat anything until lunch. Start eating apples at lunch and continue through lunch the next day.
How many apples should I eat?
You are allowed to eat 6 apples. You can eat them whenever you like but I suggest that you use them to replace your meal. You can eat them whenever you find yourself hungry but make sure you don’t exceed 6 apples within 24 hours.
What should I eat during Apple Day?
Only water is allowed when doing Apple Day. You can drink 8 to 10 glasses of water per day but drink only to satisfy your thirst. You may feel that you don’t need much water because the apple itself supplies a lot of water.
Can I start the Apple day on any days of the week?
Never start doing the Apple Day on the days you don’t take your shot. If you are skipping one injection a week, then don’t start the Apple Day on that day. If you are having your menstrual cycle and you are not taking your shot, don’t start the Apple Day on that day too.
Can I switch up the boring apple routine?
Yes, you can. Try chopping some apple into small pieces about a ½ inch. Place the chopped apples in a non-stick skillet with a little water. Bring it into a simmer until apples are soft. Add some ground cinnamon, stevia, stir and remove from heat. Enjoy!
Can I do more than one Apple Day in a row?
It’s not recommended to do more than one Apple Day in a row. If an Apple Day does not seem to work for you, then you have to look at what you are doing and see if there’s something wrong.
How to do An Apple Day on the HCG Diet?
An HCG Diet Apple Day is the most common plateau busters. It’s what you need to overcome the hurdle as you lost weight. Yes, your body can naturally correct a plateau but an Apple Day can speed up the process.
Keep in mind these rules when doing Apple Day:
- Do an Apple Day only if you have hit a plateau of 4 to 6 days. A weight-loss plateau or stall happens when you have not lost or gained any weight for a couple of days. Now, if you have gained weight, it’s time for you to look back into your meals and the ingredients you are using. If you are using too little or too many calories and have gained weight, an Apple Day is not necessary for this situation.
- If your weight has stalled only for a day or two, don’t panic and jump straight away in eating 6 apples. The fruits will only overload your system with sugars and carbs and can end you up with additional weight. Apples contain a lot of fluids, sugar, and fiber. One apple contains an average of 95 calories that will help you stay full throughout the day.
- You can drink water but you can do so only if you feel an uncomfortable thirst. Apples contain lots of water so you won’t be dehydrating yourself during an apple day. Therefore, you cannot drink the same amount of water you have had previous days. Doing so will allow your body to take on extra water weight which can further halt your weight loss progress.
- Do not do apple day in a row. If you find yourself frequently stalling, you need to look at what are you doing to see if what went wrong. If this plateau breaker does not work for you for some reason, you need to eat normally for one day and do another plateau breaker in between.An Apple Day Menu

Remember that an HCG Diet stall is perfectly normal and healthy. In fact only under certain circumstances an Apple Day is needed to correct a stall.

It can help you get back on track with your weight loss but that when you stick to the protocol there is no need for you to do an apple day.
