I have a question for you all. I am approaching the end of this round's phase 2. I have been very happy with my results and have lost more than I thought I would thus far. I am wondering if all of you have experienced a slower loss once you get to the end of your rounds? I would like to lose another 14-20 pounds in my next round before I try to maintain. I think I will be comfortable with my weight at that point. I am wondering if the HCG stops working as well near the end of the phase? It looks like the losses I am having these last few weeks would be the same as if i were on any other diet and not on a strict 500cal. Any insight would be great I'm excited to take a week off for Phase 3, but I'm planning to jump back in for the last round, after Thanksgiving and some birthday celebrations. At least with low carb, I know I'm not going to gain. I've been successful with Atkins in the past...hopefully my body adjusts to it as it has before.
