Thread: 800-1000 Calorie Diet while taking HCG

    800-1000 Calorie Diet while taking HCG

    Hi,

    I am new to HCG and am going to a HCG clinic. I was told that I should consume 800-1000 calories per day. When i first started the injections i was losing weight daily. I was NOT losing 1 pound like most people on the 500 calorie diet was losing, but i was losing... Now the weightloss has almost stopped. I am doing everything I was before but the weight is not coming off. I have another appointment on Monday and i am debating on whether i should do another round. I have lost 10 pounds in 4.5 weeks.... I need advice. With the HCG injections i am also taking Liprotropics, B-12 along with CLA...

    Imho, it makes NO sense to change the original protocol. If your dose is right, you are not hungry on 500kcal. It is not a hardship at all. PLUS, you aren't really on 500kcal since with hcg, your body mobilizes all the additional energy it needs from the fat cells.

    Doctors are delusional at times, because they still have a huge "starvation diet" sign blinking above their head. That would mean the body goes into starvation mode on 500kcal, with the metabolism slowing and the body holding on to any fat it can. Which does not happen with HCG. If a doctor cannot disregard his definition of a "healthy" standard American diet, or cannot disregard his preconceived notion of a starvation diet, he just shouldn't offer HCG.

    of course the clinic wants you to lose slower so that you are paying them longer.

    Good point Beth!

    What you could do Justice is do another round and try the 500 cal version and see how you get on with that. If you're not hungry then it must be right. You could tell the docs that you're doing the 800-1000 one (a little white lie!) if you think they'll start moaning at you about it.

    That's everyone.. Good points..I may do another round and reduce my calories to 500. The only thing is I get 2 injections a week, and with the original protocol I know u are to take the injections everyday. I can't afford going to the clinic and purchase the injections for everyday. Is there a safe reputable place I can get them online?

    Hi Justice,
    My doctor wanted me on a 1,000 calorie diet as well while taking the HCG RX injections but I have been following the 500 calorie instead and it's working. He also didn't want me to do load days but I made sure to them as well. I started HCG 9 days ago with the 500 calorie protocol and I'm down 11 lbs!

    I would listen to the veterans of the forum and follow protocol. If your not doing strenuous activities the low calorie diet will work well.

    Hope this helps!

    Injections only 2 times a week? Maybe one of the veterans can advise. I have my pre made injections in my fridge and I'm doing 5 days injections and 2 days off as instructed by my doctor.... What state do you live in? Maybe instead of injections you can invest in drops?

    Sorry I'm not much of help...the people on this forum are super nice and very knowledgable...

    Zazagirl - That is a great idea, to just go ahead and do the 500 calorie instead. I have heard so many good results from people who follow the protocol. That is amazing that you have lost 11 pounds in 9 days.

    Well i go back to my second round tomorrow... should I load for two days since i am following the 500 calorie protocol? or can i just start the 500 calories? I did not load on the first round as the dr. said it was not necessary.

    I am so confused and so frustrated with it. i just want to lose weight and it seems impossible :-( Any help you guys can provide would be so appreciated.

    Thanks!!!

    I would load up for sure, don't skip this if your going with the 500 calorie diet. Your suppose to be taking the hcg while loading for those first two days. Also I am not sure if you can take both injections and drops....you should probably stick to one.....I have seen people have great results with homeopathic drops which can be bought on line or even at GNC.... I'm a bit skeptical about the HCG clinic you are going to..... I would try to message some of the veterans on here about the 2 times a week shots.... Not sure if that's enough HCG.... Hope this helps..
