    Thanks for the info. This will be my first round with exercise. I have been doing a routine all through p3 and its pretty easy. Good to know what the signs are!!

    This is really interesting information, thank you.
    I have cosistantly worked out my entire life, so with hcg I exercise at about 50-75% of my 'normal' in P2 (as energy permits), then in P3 I go at 100%. One thing that helps me is that I eat an apple prior to working out and within 30 mins after the workout, I have about 3oz of baked chicken (I bake up seasoned chicken tenders on Sunday to last throughout the week). If I stick to this, I do not experience any discomfort. My losses on hcg are greater when I don't work out, but excercise keeps me balanced, both emotionally and logically.

    For me, it was only hard the first week. To the point where I had headaches and a little bit of shaking. Getting rid of all of the junk in your diet will take its toll. But when the scale starts to go down, down, down - you realize that this is the most successful thing you've ever tried for (immediate) weight loss. Then it seems easy to me. Easier than doing your best and then sabotaging your progress on the weekend. Easier than going to the gym for a month, just to see that the scale barely moved because you "gained muscle". Get through round 1 and stay on task, or you'll risk messing up your metabolism and keeping on your load weight!

    I agree with MconHCG. I feel like I've been doing this diet forever, but I counted today and I've been doing it for 16 whole days... yes, 16 days lol. The choices come easy and the calorie counts do too. My cravings are pretty much gone, however I'm not following Dr. S's plan exactly, I do a clinic called UniqueU in Cincinnati and it's a vlcd with injections, so I can eat a jello if I need something really sweet (10 calories). That helps me keep the cravings away. I'm not sure if people following Dr. S's plan can do that or not to be honest. The weekends ARE the hardest, and so is going out. I've only gone out with friends once. It was really hard and the temptation was rough. I had to thoroughly research where we were going and pick what I was going to have before hand. I went to a family party the other day (they REALLY know how to eat- good old country cookin ya know) and if you don't eat you insult them. So, I had some turkey cold cuts and water and no one really noticed because I was stuffing my face. Dog and sofa might be low in calories though. Just sayin...

    It will get better. The mental cravings don't last forever......it's just a detox phase. Just remind yourself when you feel like that....that is what processed food tells you all the time. No wonder we find outrselves doing diets, striving so hard to lose when we're up against such a strong force. YOu are in the right place, at the right time. Win the mental battle, and the rest is easy!! (Give it a week or more)

    happydj- how are you recovering from your PI?
    COMPLETELY recovered and then some! B4 leaving on the vacay (PI) I was -38, gained 6.4 (as of Monday weight) and today I am -39.4. I wanted to lose it by Friday...perfectly happy having it gone by today

    Argh...double chin = my nemesis!
    Round 1 I lost alot off my butt (didn't know I'd even gained so much there?!) then upper belly. This round the chest is deflating like a balloon. Where can I buy a bra for udders? Then the legs, arms, and now it seems to be working away at the lower belly.

    I used salsa on P2 also, with ground meat and chicken and I didn't have a problem either. So good luck!

    just count your calories.
