That's very likely some of the gain then.
ok, new at this (2nd load day for both me and hubby). But I did the loading and somehow was DOWN 1.4 pounds this morning?!? If I ate any more yesterday I would've definitely threw up, and most of it was healthy fat - except the milkshake yummmmmmm But with all my pregnancies (and therefore regular hcg) I would lose weight until around month 5/6. So I'm guessing it's just the norm for my body but wanted to make sure that I wasn't in trouble for this week somehow.
Also, I've downloaded the gourmet cookbook and will definitely be going through that, since hubs will most definitely quit without it, but a couple questions: mixed green salad = iceberg salad mix? Or something else? Should I just buy a head of lettuce/romaine/spinach and mix it all up? Lean beef = ?% All I can find at stores in our area is 7%. So should I use that or skip ground altogether and use some other beef. Steak - sirloin? round? cube? I've tried finding answers but either I'm missing them (completely possible) or I'm the only person uninformed enough on this (also completely possible lol)
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!
In the initial protocol it states to stop injections while on our TOM. Is this still correct? To me it does not seem logical to do so.
Most people now do not stop for TOM and do not seem o find it a problem!
I did not stop for my TOM and found that weight loss did not vary much. Perhaps I'm lucky - it's only my first time taking the HCG!
Well, def no mustard. Went w/o it yesterday, down 1.4 today. Trial and error.
Another Q on hunger to Grammy. I have drastically reduced my exercise intensity but still so about 30 min of an elliptical (usually do high intense boot camp style with power lifting). From that, I experience some exercise induced hunger, nothing unbearable. Should I change my dose or just accept it? I need to do something as exercise is normally such a huge part of my life.
grammy & rachel ~ I think she read that on the same page I did.
There is an HCG diet web page that supposedly has Dr. Trudeau's guidelines. It says:
— The same choices as for lunch. Do not, however, have two meals exactly the same in the same day.
That's why I love these forums ...... you get the correct info. Sometimes I have the same thing for both meals (especially if something is working and tastes good) and I'm doing just fine.
