R1 Ph2 VLCD 12

Rate this Entry
After losing about 10 lb while on vlcd, I notice the big differnce. My clothes are lose, I look smaller. It really works miracles this hcg thing.
Lately, for the last few days, I haven't been losing, and today I am up 0.8 lb. A little sad. But I know, I didn't cheat, I was fallowing POP faithfully, so I guess that is just my body adjusting.
The only problem I have right now is constipation. I feel backed up. I tried herbal tea from the health food store, it worked, but made me very uncomfortable and grouchy, because of the cramps.
I will try Magnesium citrate. Hopefully it will help.
I drink lots and lots of water, a minimum of 4 liters. I take psyllium husk with 2 glasses of water. I drink org. apple vinegar.
I know, a lot of people have this problem. I read, one of the remedies may be drinking HOT water with a juice of one lemon. I will try that too, especially that today is cold, windy and rainy outside.
My other issue is carb craving. For the last few days I had bad carb cravings. Didn't give in, but it was hard. Instead, I ate egg whites and tomatoe. At the beginning of my vlcd I was using some coconut oil, now I stopped. Maybe I should start again, because at first I was losing regularly about 1 lb a day. And I had no big cravings. I just want a piece of bread....
Morning are easy, i go to the gym, work hard, feel really good. Women at the gym started coming up to me and comment in amazement about my loss. I don't tell them about hcg....he he
Jackets I haven't worn in few years, are now lose and comfy. All my home clothes are hanging on me. What an awesome feeling. So, even lately I haven't had any great losses, I can see the losses on my body.
How do other people deal with constipation?
Do you use coconut oil?
How are your days going?
Any challenges?

    Hi There,

    Happy to see things are going in the right direction. I am on VLCD Day 12 and so far down about 11 pounds no lost today but thats ok. I knew sooner or later things would slow down not worried. NOT having constipation issues. Going just about everyday may miss one day max. Any who I drink just regular green Tea daily and that seem to work with a splash of lemon and 2 packets of stevia. I have noticed when i cut out one of my fruits i lose the next day. Did that for two days and lost both didnt do it yesterday and look at today. So I try to skip it if i can and if not oh well. NOt really beating my self up because 10 -11 pounds in a little over a week is still great. Any way hope your scale is back moving tomorrow hang in there.

    I am on the same boat with you. Have lost 11.3 lb since on vlcd. Have a gain today of 0.8...lost yesterday only 0.2 lb. Some say, it may be citrus fruit. I can try not eating any today. I had one full lemon juice with hot water, I was told that helps to go...
    It's good to know, at least, that I am right on track, like you are. That relaxes me a lot. I am a worry kind of person by nature...
    I don't like stevia, but it's good with raw ginger tea. Kills the spicyness.
    I will not eat any citrus today, just an apple later on for late breakfast.
    YOu are right, our losses are pretty good as it is! Plus, no hunger! And I am definitely losing inches! Which is the hardest and the most important. I have had eating issues (disorders, like bulimia and anorexia), when I was 20 y. old. NOw I am 35...and have dealt with those problems. But I know what it is to lose water...not inches, though. The skinniest I have been was 116 lb for my big boned 5.8 frame. I was passing out on the floor....
    My normal and healthy looking weight is 135-140 lb. Size 4-6. I would be extremely happy if I ever got into size 8! The last I checked, I was size 16. Scary.
    Anyway, too much blabbling. Sorry, it just kind of poured out...

    HI, thank you for your input. I got similar kind of tea, it helped, but was a little painful. Good job on losing almost 10lb! Together we can do it!
