THE PROGRAM: PHASE 3

You’re probably now just 10 pounds from your goal weight, which you’ll achieve in Phase 3, Pre-Maintenance (Fine-Tuning). In this Phase, you will gradually see how much you can raise your daily Net Carb intake while exploring the final three rungs of the Carb Ladder.




THE PROGRAM: PHASE 3

Objectives of Pre-Maintenance (Fine-Tuning)

How long

Until you’ve reached your goal weight and maintained it for a month.

Purpose

Trim your final excess pounds, continuing to explore your personal carb balance. Then find your tolerance for carb intake while maintaining your new weight. This phase is a dress rehearsal for Lifetime Maintenance.

Goal

Gradually increase your daily Net Carb intake in 10-gram (or 5-gram, if you prefer) increments, continuing to reintroduce new carb foods, as long as you continue to slowly lose weight and then to maintain that loss.
