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….

Hello everybody, as most of you reading this are probably aware the forum suffered a major outage yesterday (April 16th).

It looks like we are back up and running for right now though, but if you notice any issues plesae let me know. That said, we are going to be working on moving things over to a better hosting provider so that we no longer have issues such as yesterday. I’ll keep you updated on the progress. 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!

HDI Health Member Blog Update: VLCD question for everyone :)

I have a question for you. I am 5 pounds to goal and I wanted to stop this diet so I can eat something with my family on Easter but I will only have been on it 20 days and that is including the loading days. What is the difference between stopping a little early and a planed interruption? Everything I read says stick it out but I don’t need to loose anymore and this is my second round of phase 2 this year. I just don’t no what to do. Read more….

HDI Health Member Blog Update: Maintenance in between rounds?

So, I have attempted to do HCG before, but sadly could not do it. But that failure only makes me more determined. Having done it before, I know my body loses 2 pounds a day, so my aim is to do 23-30 days depending on whether or not i have a cheat day. Anyway, my question is, since I have about 50 or so pounds to lose, should i split it up into two rounds? I’m definitely leaning on doing it all in one go, because I don’t think I’d be able to do it twice. But someone on here said it was better to give your body a break in between? Is that true or would I be able to do it all at once? I definitely prefer the latter, but if splitting it up would be healthier for my body, I’d be willing. Please reply ASAP! I appreciate any help! :D Read more….

HDI Health Member Blog Update: Vlcd 20

Stall… I was bad yesterday..I just felt at the end of my rope as far as eating on plan goes plus I was out of apples. I had chipotle barbacoa salad for lunch..all pretty much on protocol. However, for supper, my hubby and I went out to Longhorn Steakhouse. I got a 6oz sirloin with steamed asparagus..still on protocol…skipped the bread (YAY!!) but I did eat my side salad with ranch dressing and croutons. (BADDD GIRL!!) At least it was all very low carb right? Today I still weigh 195…at least I didn’t gain! I decided to take a water pill this morning to shed this bloat and see what the scale says tomorrow. I’ve already weighed in at 193.2 a couple hours after taking it so it’s good to know that I am carrying around extra water and am probably still losing fat. Today, I am going to eat on plan and I will go to the grocery store to get my apples!! Thursday is my last day before my planned interruption and I really really want to get down to 192 or lower!!!
