  1. The wonders of SAMe

    One other supplement that folks may be interested in taking to prevent stress-related gains and to possibly assist in stabilization: SAMe (also sometimes called SAM-e). It occurs naturally in the body, but is depleted in times of stress. It helps with things like insomnia (which I've suffered from), depression, "brain fog," all that and more. It helps your body function well, even when under stress.

    Information on it here, part of the information on SAMe that's posted on ...

  2. Transitioning from Phase 2 to Phase 3 Successfully: How to Stabilize your First Week

    PROTEIN LIMIT
    First, what's your LIW/LDW? Whatever it is, your weight equivalent in grams of COOKED protein, plus 20% of it more, is your protein limit/ceiling. If you go above 120% of your LIW/LDW in grams of cooked protein you will likely gain. Don't EVER go above this, even if you increase calories or carbs. And again, I'll emphasize: you're tracking COOKED protein grams. Weigh your food AFTER cooking, and you'll know how many calories you're ACTUALLY consuming; the "raw" foods ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Frenemies on the hCG Protocol: DO NOT TRUST These "Helpers" in P2 and P3...or even P4

    Recently, I saw a post from someone who was doing a few things "off protocol." Part of this was due to being hoodwinked, part of this may have been due to her personal ambivalence to stay on protocol. Whatever the reason, she is one of many folks I've seen make these mistakes. So, I'm listing these "frenemies" here -- they're things you should not trust as helpers when on the hCG Protocol or beyond it in Phase 4 (lifetime maintenance), even though they claim otherwise.

  5. 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. ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Gains: Inflammatory Responses, Food Intolerances, Allergies, and Goitrogens

    GAINS
    There are notorious foods that cause a gain for many people. Sometimes, this is due to an inflammatory response. Food intolerances and full-blown allergies can also be to blame. Last, but not least, it could be a thyroid issue at work; a certain class of food called "goitrogens" inhibit the function of the thyroid, and if you have thyroid issues, these goitrogens can make any thyroid issue worse.

    Ever wonder why some salt is iodized? It's ...

  9. 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 ...
