Thread: Do Muscular People Tend to Have Slower Losses?

    Question Do Muscular People Tend to Have Slower Losses?

    Hi! I'm new on here! But I am frustrated about my loss on P2. I only lost 15 lb in 30 days. My goal was 21 lbs. I know it's "only" 6 more lbs, but for me, it's a HUGE psychological goal. I used to be at that weight before gaining the 21 lbs & just wanted to return to where I was. I'm physically active & just couldn't lose any weight, which is why I decided to try the HCG Diet. I am excited that I actually have lost! But it seems that everyone else tends to lose more rapidly than me. I have not cheated at all & in fact cut out 1 fruit/day. My sponsor said that "my body wants to be at the current weight" and to stop P2, and go on to P3 for now. I was just wondering if people that are physically active & have a bit more muscle tend to lose less rapidly (I'm not "ripped" or anything, but athletic)? Or is it just "me"? I really, really wanted to get to my goal, but the longer I was on P2, the more apparent it was not going to happen. So just wondering...Thx!

    5 rounds, down 78# and at goal
    No they typically lose much faster than others so that's not the problem. Did you follow the exact protocol or an adapted one? You're actually in the average weight loss for a woman, but on the lower end. You probably had a stall in the middle which is normal. If you continue on, you would likely lose those other 6 pounds.
    My expert Hcg Diet advice is based specifically on the original Simeons Protocol and over 10 years experience as a weight loss and nutrition coach. Grammy's personal protocol:Grammy's Hcg Diet Protocol

    Smile Not Original Protocol

    Are we allowed to say what Brand/Protocol we are using on this Forum? I don't want to get into trouble! I use sub-lingual homeopathic HcG drops. But from what I gather by reading a lot of posts & info on this site, it is not the 500 day original calorie protocol that was suggested. It was 2x 4oz protein, 2x 4oz veggie, 2 cracker, 2 fruit/day, which when I put it into My Fitness Pal, came out to be between 550-650 cal/day (they said not to look @ calories, but I did anyway). And I was told that 2T of cream/day for coffee was OK on P2. Maybe that's the problem? There's no way I could do black coffee!

    I'm still super excited at my losses, but I had already started the transition to P3 not only because I was frustrated & my sponsor said to go to P3, but I have a tennis tournament coming up & didn't want to be on P3 during that time. I have been playing tennis 2-3 times/week while on the VLCD & have been pretty energized, which was surprising (well, after the 1st week I got lots of energy!). But all of my friends who have done this same protocol (not sure @ the cream part) have all lost way quicker than I have. Like I said, I have not cheated at all! I've even taken out a fruit, unless it was a tennis day, then I ate the fruit.

    And, BTW I've been FREEZING the last few days!! I guess that's a good thing after I read more on this site! Thanks for your help, Grammy!! It's nice to have someone knowledgeable to ask questions & get support!!
