    Hello Lonim!
    I had the same problem. On loading days, I simply wasn't very hungry. It was hard to eat at all. Isn't that just awful? Finally you can eat whatever you want...and then you have no appetite! It's like a sick, cosmic joke.

    Some people had luck getting their calories in by drinking them. (i.e. milkshakes, etc.) I ate steak and fatty meats. I have to stay away from sugar anyway because it gives me cravings for more and more sugar...I think I ate a baked potato with a LOT of butter, too. I didn't eat until I felt sick...but I felt VERY full after eating and ate to capacity.

    Good luck!

    Thanks KitCat24 and Melloyello!

    @Melloyello- I have the same sugar addiction issues and really try to be vigilant but sometimes I get ridiculous cravings, so I am hoping this load helps me get it out of my system for a bit. I really want to use these next 6 weeks to break the sugar cycle. I could be wrong but I think that the Hcg is actually working to keep my appetite in check. We'll see tomorrow!

    We can do this!!!!!!!
    Did your HCG come in powder form, then you mixed it with the bac water? If so, I've "heard" (on the boards) that it starts to lose potency around 23-25 days... If I were you, if you're planning on a 40 day round, I would plan on mixing another batch. I got 2X5000iu of the HCG, I will use the first one for 20+/- days, until I notice a change in hunger and then re-mix.

    Good luck!!

    I wouldn't worry about the kale with wine, don't tell anyone , but I drank a whole bottle of wine the other day (don't judge me, I was REALLY STRESSED!!!) and still lost the next day. If it was sauteed in oil, I'd be more concerned... And a bit of milk and peanuts... Goodness, when I think of a cheat, I'm thinking Cheesecake Factory! lol I've never actually gone that far off the deep end, but that's what I **dream** of!

    BTW: I 'cheated' today too, I had an egg plus a white (which is allowed "occasionally" per P&I...) but I fried it in just a tad of coconut oil, then I fried some turnip (low carb) in a tad of coconut oil with a bit of onion. It was heavenly and I feel so guilty, but it's a good guilty... 'eh!?! It's not Cheesecake Factory!!! (I am ever the optimist!!!)

I understand. I have been wanting to try the miracle noodles. I've heard that they are sort of tasteless and they soak up the flavor of whatever they are mixed with.
    I am staying here too! I like our group of groupies!

    The Miracle Noodles are kind of yucky, but they convince your brain you are eating something a little more hardy... You definitely have to really rinse them well. They are stinky. They do tend to take on the flavor of what you eat them with, but they are chewy and still taste a little yucky even with the added flavor of the additives.

    I should be a sales person for Miracle Noodles, 'eh!?! NOT. lol

    Great losses, keep up the good work!!!

I have a little one so its hard to get food organized and I worry I am not eating enough. Does anyone know if your body reacts the same to coconut oil as it does to other fats when loading? I have some MCT oil and I think it just might be easier to put that in a few protein shakes and drink my fat.

    Also, yesterday and today I've had almost zero appetite. Uncommon for me. I normally don't keep ice cream in the house because, Ben and Jerry are always begging me to open the freezer door and hang out.

    Good luck to everyone!
    I would not count on the coconut oil to help you out with loading... From what I've read, your body processes it totally different than other oils, so you won't be getting the needed fat, and YOU. NEED. THE. FAT. during loading. (I seem to be able to use coconut oil, minimally, in P2, so I'm pretty sure it's not the same as regular oils, but I'm no chemist...) As gross as you feel, eat a candy bar, eat french fries, eat a Big Mac, eat fish & chips, throw in an avocado and lots of nuts for some healthy fats! If you've only gained 1lb, you're not loading right. Most people gain 4+ lbs during loading. You will drop this weight within days and if you don't load properly, you will be hungry and miserable during the first few days VLC.

    Good luck and go eat some junk!!!

    Bear in mind, loading is about FATS, not about SUGAR... Sugar won't get you what you need... Not that that stopped me from eating a giant candy bar (and tonnes of cheese and other fatty stuff) while I was loading! lol

I'm not sure how to count it from VLCD1-VLCD7, or VLCD 8? Then I think maybe VLCD2-VLCD 8, d/t on VLCD you are just putting down your load weight!
