Cheating on HCG diet will delay or stop your weight loss. It can also cause weight gain because it worsens hunger. You cannot reverse what you have done the moment you see that you are gaining weight. However, you can still correct your weight gain. The common way of correcting your weight gain is to do a steak or apple a day. These steps are created not for you to keep cheating but to help you get back on your diet track. Take note that you cannot do these two steps all at once. You have to choose either you will do the “steak day or the “apple a day”.
