Featured Member Blog Post: hungry on hcg p3

Hi guys, wanted to know if I’m eating enough calories on p3. Finished 30 days of hcg shots at 250 iu from an hcg clinic. Loss 43lbs. and now on day 6 of p3. I am eating between 1200 to 1500 calories a day. No sugars and no starches. My weight is very stable @ 1 lb above LIW. For some reason today for the first time I feel hungier than usual. Have doubled my protein intake and not excercising. Should I increase my calories? I’m male, 5’8 and 300lbs. Read more….

Featured hCG Diet Info Member Blog Post: P3 and TOM

Hello everyone! I need some advice on a possible correction day for p3. Today is my 10th day into p3 of hcg. (My last LCW was 127.6) So far stabilization has been good with no issues. I began to add things slowly into my diet, and I seemed to stay at 127.8 all week for the most part. However three days ago I noticed the weight peeking up slightly first by 1.2 lbs. the next day it was another 1.2, and today it was another .4 gain. So at this point I’m considering a correction day TODAY! My only confusion is that I’m not sure if these gains the last three days have been because of me not eating enough protein or because I started TOM. I have to admit I have not been eating enough protein. I have not cheated or eaten anything rogue off protocol. I did however made a pizza of almond bread crust two days ago, and ate that baby up like it was going out of style! Perhaps too much almond bread? Idk I’m really confused. I have been eating almond bread since day 1 of p3 and have not seem to have any issues until 3 days ago. Then again like I said TOM also arrived 3 days ago, and to be clear on that, TOM has not fully let completely loose if u know what I mean. It’s been there, a little shy but it has begun. So my question is, should I do this correction day? Or is it possible this slight gain is hormonal? Are corrections days recommended during TOM visits? Read more….

hCG Diet Forums: Food prep

Phase 3 is drawing near and I am getting nervous about leaving my safe phase 2! One thing I really like about phase 2 is having everything on hand…the meats are weighed so I can just grab a meat, cook up a veggie…everything is easily prepared. So, I was wondering what some of your staples are that are quick for phase 3. I don’t have a whole lot of time to cook breakfast with 3 kids to get ready so I need grab and go stuff or things to prepare ahead of time! Read more….

hCG Diet Forums: Replacing electrolytes on P2

Hey all! I have yet another question :) I started R2phase 2 this last weekend and then of course Monday i came down with the flu. I have been staying to protocol foods, just ate less some days because of lack of appetite. I know losing electrolytes is a serious concern with this and typically I would drink gatorade or pedialyte or make jello. However those are obviously not protocol so what can I do? I have been drinking Smart Water all week b/c it claims to have some electrolytes in it. Thanks! Read more….

HDI Health Member Blog Update: VLCD 16 195.4lbs

Down .2lbs today to 195.4. Not as much as I would have liked but I’m just thankful to see the scale moving! I’m down a total of 11.4 lbs in 15 days which is unreal! It hit me today looking at what VLCD I’m on that I am doing a really good job sticking to this plan this time! I was feeling a little tired of the food yesterday but I only have 1 more week until my planned interruption. I just hope that I will be resolved enough to get right back on the wagon after returning from Mexico! I have a lot of weight I still need to lose. I know it will be hard to go back to this style of eating but if I can make it as painless as possible with my rogue little eating ways than I feel like I can do it. Yesterday’s eats: Apple Beef Jerky 4 Aidell’s chicken meatballs Chipotle salad with double meat and pico de gallo and fajita veggies (I was feeling like “ugh” about food yesterday so I thought I’d give myself a treat) 3/4 square dark chocolate (full disclosure…I also had the last 1/8 of my son’s salted carmel mocha frapuccino) it was just a few sips Today, I know I have to get a little more on track with my eating. I feel like maybe I should do another steak/carmelized onion day but I don’t want to lean on that too much because I don’t want to get tired of the one meal that still tastes really good to me!
