Thread: Day 2 of the 500 cal HCG and lost 5.8 lbs in one day?

    Day 2 of the 500 cal HCG and lost 5.8 lbs in one day?

    Hi, so glad to have found this forum. I just started the HCG diet and I'm very new. I had my 2 " binge" days & will admit, yesterday was hard! Switching to 500 cal. But I lost almost 6 pounds overnight! Is this real? I've got another 25-30 pounds to go and I need to stay committed.

    Yes, you can lose an astounding amount after the first low calorie day. Usually that happens when you have gained a lot loading with foods that are highly inflammatory on their own (like sugar) foods you are personally sensitive to, including salt. Some are more salt-reactive than others. The reason is that the inflammatory foods cause your body to hold on to a lot of water. The restrictions of the low calorie diet phase allow that inflammation to dissipate and your body releases the water.

    Whatever the losses of the first week, (its not unusual to lose 8-10 pounds, but some will lose even more), just be aware that losses will slow after the first week, but you will go on to lose an average of .5 pound a day for women when all is said and done. (men will generally average a pound a day).

    I'm excited for your big drop. Those first couple of big drop days are always super motivational for me.

    Thanks Leez! That info is very helpful. Does the hunger ever go away? Today was also tough, but I'm trying to stay strong since I still have 3 weeks to go and I want to succeed this time around since I've tried every diet on the planet! 🤐

    I little hunger the first few days can be normal, but it shouldn't be strong or unable to be ignored.

    What dose are you on? The wrong dose can cause hunger issues.
