P4 Going Well

Rate this Entry
Things have been going really well for me after doing the last round, which is great. I'm only correcting once or twice a week, and I'm only ever a few ounces out of range. Today I'm 0.4 below ldw and I've added starches, I actually lost 1.4 after a night of drinks which is really interesting. But this is just an update that stabilizing seems possible for me now.

    Good for you! I am stabalizing at 2.6 over LIW and am fine with that. I only have to correct if I go out and have a few drinks. It is so nice to know we can do this. Congrads!

    That's great that you still lost weight after a night out drinking! wow! I have a concern this coming week, when my friends will be in town and all of us go out partying, that I will not be able to drink for fear of gaining too much. My hcg clinical consultant said "If you have to drink anything, only do vodka, because you'll gain the least". So that was what I had planned to do (in moderation), until I saw your post. What did you drink that caused you to still lose weight?

    Thanks Perseverance!!

    @ Misspriss:
    Honestly over the past two weeks I've drank three nights, one time was just white wine, one time was gin and vodka (mixed with diet ginger ale or light lemonade), and the last time I had baileys, vodka, and wine. I lost every time, but I also take carb blockers when I introduce starches, including drinks. I used Swansons C-120X (natrol is another one they sell in stores if you wanna try one) and idk it really prevents gains, but i don't think it necessarily causes loses. I think maybe it was the dehydration caused by the alcohol coupled with the fact that the carb blockers prevented my body from storing the other things i ate during the day to uses the carbs from the drinks for energy, since your body processes starches from alcohol first. I was also cautious that I gave myself a good bit of caloric wiggle room, and surprisingly I had not problems with it.

    I plan to go hunting for the (Swansons C-120X & natrol). What stores do you normally buy them from, and I presume they're in the weightloss supplements section? I like how you explained what you think the body might be doing in order for you to have still lost weight with alcohol consumption, but you also said you gave yourself 'caloric wiggle room'----which isn't much when on 500cals/day for me (on phase 2). But I'll have to hurry up and buy those items, since i'll be going out with the girls this weekend and wanna still lose a little bit.

    -please keep me posted about the store you bought the stuff from, so I can run out an purchase the items tomorrow.

    Hey, sorry for the late reply! The C-120X i order online from SwansonVitamins.com, i think they ae more powerful personally, but the most accessible is the Natrol Carb Intercept that you can find at Walmart, GNC or stores like that.
