I don't know if anyone else has answered your post, but it caught my attention. A steak day is only to correct a weight gain of more than 2 lbs during maintenance phase. While you are taking HCG you must stick to the Low Calorie Diet with it's low fat options. An apple day is allowed, but usually isn't necessary. It is normal to stall, but drinking extra water will often correct this. I am on Round 2 ( I broke with protocol and started Round 2 after only about 5 weeks instead of the recommended 6). If you check my weight tracker, you will see that I stalled, and even sometimes gained in Round 1. But eventually I lost all the weight I would gain within a couple of days. I never did an apple day. I started VLCD phase of Round 1 weighing 190.5 lbs, and when I ended Round 1 after 29 days of VLCD weighing 172.5 lbs.
I hope you have great success. I love this protocol!
