I have done a round of HCG before, losing 30 pounds in 40 days (I would have lost more but I cheated quite a bit). I attempted a second round but began getting sick from only eating such a small amount of food. I am wondering if it is possible to create my own variation of the diet with slightly more calories and different (healthy) foods and still lose weight? I understand that I would get better results if I followed protocol, however, i would prefer not to get sick again. I just want to lose about 10 more pounds with this next round....Possibly 15. It is going to be a 23 day round. Since I won't be following protocol, I will be incorporating exercise into my plan.
My current weight is 230. My ultimate goal is between 175-180.
