These make a great breakfast. Don't you get tired of eggs and meat for breakfast? I do.
PEA PROTEIN COOKIES (my version):
Pea Protein (I use the unflavored NOW brand-- 24 grams protein per scoop, no carbs, no fat)
1 ripe banana (you can substitute avocado--just add some sweetener and leave out the other fats)
1 scoop pea protein powder
1/2 scoop golden flax meal
1 tablespoon of almond butter, pumpkin seed butter, or coconut butter

So, I have attempted to do HCG before, but sadly could not do it. But that failure only makes me more determined.
Having done it before, I know my body loses 2 pounds a day, so my aim is to do 23-30 days depending on whether or not i have a cheat day.
Anyway, my question is, since I have about 50 or so pounds to lose, should i split it up into two rounds? I'm definitely leaning on doing it all in one go, because I don't think I'd be able to do it twice.
I know I run the risk of alienating people by bitching about this, which is why I'm keeping it to my own blog rather than being argumentative in the forums. Because, truly, I'm more confused than anything else. I firmly believe that everyone should do what's best for them and be adult enough to make their own choices, but it doesn't mean I always understand those choices.
I feel like many of us have fallen into a mindset of "I've been fat/overweight/depressed/unhappy/unhealthy/FillInTheBlank
Something I've always wondered about, and even moreso with the recent influx of first-timers: Fats. On a basic level, I get it. They're not the enemy. Many of them are good for you in moderation. When I'm not in P2, I definitely don't cut them out of my diet (moderation and type of fats is key).
But as many people that have done more than one round will readily tell you, they're shocked at how much food and fat they can eat in P3 and P4 while not gaining an ounce (and sometimes
I'll be honest... My first round of HCG was no shining moment for me. I lost 20lbs in a 40 day round (yay), got 4 days into P3, gained 4 pounds, and said to hell with it. And that was that. Yeah, not proud. But, that was a year ago, and I'm back with a vengeance now. I'm in P3 again and I'm being militant about it - probably to an annoying degree. Good thing I live alone!
Whether it be me painstakingly paying attention to what I'm doing or a little luck - or both - I'm currently
So I went on vacation and I gained 5 pounds. I am on phase3day11. Is it too late for me to lose those 5 pounds? I am now 10 pounds away from my goal weight and I am super bummed. Can I do a bunch of correction days back to back? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Well, I'm back down within my 2-pound range (actually, I'm .2 pounds below it) after my bad food weekend. I didn't do a steak day (don't like steak, and the thought of a meat-heavy meal right before bedtime isn't that appealing) but what I did do was eat my usual breakfast (Uncle Sam's Flakes w/ Flaxseeds and blueberries, plus coffee), have a huge protein shake for lunch (with a very filling 48g protein), and ate a light dinner consisting of a huge serving of grapefruit, lots of water, and some
It's been a while since my last blog! Summer life is picking up (and so are the temperatures, ugh) and DH and I have been busier than usual. I've had the opportunity to reach out to some of my church friends about the HCG Protocol and direct them to this site--I'm very excited and I hope they will join the rest of us losers-who-are-really-winners.
P3 has been going well for me; I have stayed within the 2-pound limit, though I'm still figuring out what foods I'm sensitive to (and

Yesterday evening I made a cauliflower crust pizza... and it was so good I ate half of it. Probably explains why the scale was a bit higher this morning than I'd like; I've got to learn how to use more self control. All the healthy eating in the world won't help you if you eat double portions of everything, and that's my biggest issue with my dining habits. If I can get that licked, I'll be much better off.
Also this morning, I officially am over my constipation if you know what
Tomorrow I officially begin Phase 3! I'm excited, especially since my weight has been holding so well. I've been staying at 156.something for the past 3 days of no drops/VLCD. I pray that P3 will go as smoothly!
