I love hCG!

I am a believer in both the effectiveness and safety of hCG. I have only done and would only ever do hCG given by injection, in prescription strength, subcutaneously.

....hCG ROCKS!

  1. Veggies to Eat When You're Re-Introducing Carbs with the PCDS

    ORGANIC VS. NON-ORGANIC: POINTS TO CONSIDER WITH THE POST-CORRECTION DAY STRATEGY
    In my experience, there are certain veggies that have always helped with weight loss, both in P2 and P3. And, perhaps not so coincidentally, they're "low-glycemic" vegetables. I also only eat ORGANIC vegetables whenever I can; some are more important to have as organic than others. The guiding principle: if you CAN'T SKIN IT, you need to buy it as an organic veggie. IF YOU CAN skin it, you probably ...

  2. Your protein limit: Phase 3, Phase 4, etc.

    Hey all. I have to thank Beth_M for this; I had no idea that someone could eat TOO MUCH protein and gain!

    So, when I once had a gain, and Beth let me know it could be from eating too much protein, I went back and looked at my history that was present in my tracker. I discovered:

    Whenever I went over 120% of my weight in cooked grams of protein, I gained.

    So...if you want to be sure you don't gain from protein, I believe this calculation will be helpful. ...
  3. Reader's Digest Version: The First Two Crucial Days After a Correction Day

    READER'S DIGEST VERSION OF THE FIRST TWO DAYS AFTER A CORRECTION DAY

    Okay, this ORIGINALLY started out as a brief bulleted list, but folks seemed to want more of an explanation of the points. So it got longer. It's STILL shorter than the whole guide, so it qualifies in a sense as a "shorthand" version.

    Here it is:

    Sooooo....no carbs the first two days -- NONE whatsoever. Higher calories from grams of fats than calories from grams of proteins ...

  4. How to Lock In Your Loss After a Correction Day, and Get Back on Track: Ch. 7

    EARLY ON
    If your body loses weight the first no-carb day, continue on until through you complete the next no-carb day. Then, if you've lost weight two days in a row, and you're about to go lower than 2 lbs from your LIW, you'll need to proceed with upping your carbs and calories (but not before then!). If you're losing weight the first two days, but you aren't in danger of going 2 lbs below your LIW, it stands to reason that your body is adjusting itself to get back there, and you should ...

  6. How to Lock In Your Loss After a Correction Day, and Get Back on Track: Ch. 5

    NO CARBOHYDRATES EATEN THE FIRST TWO DAYS
    In this Post-Correction Day strategy, calories from fat grams will always need to be higher than calories from protein grams, and calories from protein grams will always need to be higher than calories from carbohydrate grams. Keep this in mind as you use a tracker.

    LISTING OF RATIOS AND THE ORDER OF IMPORTANCE
    Note: many trackers display their ratios in the order of fat/carbs/protein. So don't get this mixed up with your order ...

    TRANSITIONING TO NO-CARB EATING
    For some people, eating no carbs at all is quite a switch. When I first did this, on the first day, I could feel my stomach increasing its acid to break down the fat and protein in my meals. As someone who has healed 6 peptic (that's "stomach") ulcers in her life, with two of them requiring hospitalization to do so, it was somewhat of a "uh oh" moment for me to feel the acid level in my stomach rising. Thing is, if I'd taken an antacid, ...

    THE IDEAL RATIO
    In the beginning you will need to keep your calories from fat highest (58-65%), with no carbs eaten (0%), and then some calories from protein (42-35%). This is the Ideal Ratio.

    So when you start to re-introduce carbs after the first two days, the percentages of calories from fat grams and from protein grams will decrease slightly, because carbs will be taking up a little room in your diet previously filled by some fat and some protein calories. BUT, remember: ...

    HOW MANY CALORIES TO EAT AT EACH MEAL
    Once you've calculated your Post-Correction Day Daily Caloric Limit, which is your new calorie limit, you'll also need to calculate how many calories (a percentage) of your total calories will be eaten at each meal. In short, it's eating very little in the morning, more at lunch, much more at an afternoon snack, then easing back at dinner.

    Breakfast will be lowest, because you want to not flood it with calories in the morning. This is ...

    HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR NEW DAILY CALORIC LIMIT
    My previous calorie load that I'd been stabilizing at just fine during the first week of P3 was 1900 to 2000 calories. That was before I ate too late, ate WAY to much protein, and didn't drink enough water and caffeine -- it was a bad day. That's why I gained, and had to do a correction day. Unfortunately, I chose to do a Steak Day first, and it was a disaster. But, the good news: out of that horrible day, and my body's seemingly endless quest ...
