I'm on R1P2VLCD15 and the past weekish I've been STARVING leading to two cheat days (a panera cookie (the salad plate size one) one day and a subway sandwich the second, in case you were curious). I've read through here that this can be because of too high of a dose...I'm taking 17u of 5,000iu daily, starting at 150 and down to 140 as of Thursday. These are actual hunger pains that go away for about 10min if I chug water then come back with a vengeance. I've stuck to the protocol outside of the first week (I heard about HCG from a coworker and ordered through her with the instructions of 1 serving each of bread, fruit, veg, and meat for two meals a day, hcg to be taken daily...and not much else, no loading days, no calorie count, no food suggestions--which is why I'm here).
Am I missing something (nutritionally)? Would the dosage really change with such a small loss? I know hunger can be mistaken for thirst, but I'm drinking two 1.5L of water a day so I'm thinking that's not it.
Anyone with insight would be much appreciated!
