  1. Chef and foodie here...

    Works out to about 150 calories! You can skinny this down (water down the broth) if you had beef that day. Excellent dinner meal for a higher cal day (apples and beef for instance)! I can get this down to 87 calories if

  2. Loading Fats vs P3/P4 Fats

    Something I've always wondered about, and even moreso with the recent influx of first-timers: Fats. On a basic level, I get it. They're not the enemy. Many of them are good for you in moderation. When I'm not in P2, I definitely don't cut them out of my diet (moderation and type of fats is key).

    But as many people that have done more than one round will readily tell you, they're shocked at how much food and fat they can eat in P3 and P4 while not gaining an ounce (and sometimes ...
  3. R2 vlcd 4

    WooHoo!!!! 3.2 lbs down this morning! I was so hungry yesterday and felt as if I grazed all day long. Oops, I did graze all day long!!!! My caloric intake was a little over 500 calories. I had a can of tuna, mixed it with everything I could that was legal...yuck! I won't do that again!!! I drank 2 large bottles (67.2 oz) of smart water, which I am definitely going to do daily! Also, drank several cups of green tea and a couple of cups of coffee!

    Losing that much in ...

  4. Back to LIW from last round (R3P2 VLCD 5)

    Wooo! Finally! Now I feel like my head is back in the game. I'm at 156.5, which is 0.1 below LIW from last round. NOW I feel like I'm "starting" this round. Of course, my losses always slow down drastically after the first week of each P2, so I'm not getting my hopes too high up on major losses for this round. I don't think I'll make my goal, but I'll be on the right track and hopefully only have to do one short round this spring/summer.

    After skipping yesterday's ...
  5. Can I start over

  7. Sick, oh my!

    My Little Miss could of picked a better time to get sick and pass her germs to me. It is kind of my fault, I did teach her to share after all. It would be so bad if I didn't have a bowel blockage. I still haven't passed it. The pain is manageable right now. I downed a bottle of Mag Citrate last night and it helped a little but wasn't strong enough. I am trying to avoid a hospital visit for a M&M, it's embarrassing and usually you aren't treated kindly when the nurses know they have to administer ...

  8. Day 6 and struggling!

    I mixed my hcg up wrong so I just threw it out and restarted a new batch. Does anyone else come up short sometimes when filling the shots? I think I was way ove 150. Should I skip tomarrow? Will I still loose if I skip? I gained .2 this morning but I didn't have a bm and I just felt like I wasn't going to loose. Yesterday I was great really energetic not really hungry. I just don't get it. Please any advice is really appreciated!!!!

  9. Early skip day - good sign? Bad sign? Not a sign? VLCD 4

    VLCD4, and it feels like I've been at it forever. Haha. In a good way, though, like it's already back to being a habit. I woke up 1.2lbs down, thankfully. That puts me at almost one pound over LIW from last round.

    I was absolutely ravenous yesterday. As I told a friend, I was so hungry I could've clubbed a baby seal and eaten it raw. It was pretty bad. I didn't deviate or cheat, but it was difficult. For me, it's a little early in the round to have to adjust a dose, but maybe ...
  10. R2 vlcd 3

    Well a little disappointed, I have only lost 1.5 lbs...I know, I know in 2 days down a 1.5 lbs. Last time, I was down close to 3.2 in 2 days....boohoo. I did not get my water in yesterday and barely got my calories. 9pm last night, I grabbed a handful of sliced chicken breast and 1/2 of an apple and I did make it to 503 caloric intake. When it is on paper, I see so many things I did wrong...LOL.

    I have already had 33 oz of water, plan to finish my food intake by 6pm. We will ...
