    Question Fasting or just protein during VLCD?

    I can't remember why we were told not to fast during VLCD p2. Seems if 500 calories are okay, what about NO calories? If we are on HCG, shouldn't we lose more weight, and still keep muscle mass?

    Also, wondering about skipping the fruit and the bread stick, and just staying with protein and raw 0 calorie 0 carb vegs?

    Has anyone done a fast during VLCD p2? Not a fat fast, just ate nothing? Good or bad?
    Thanks for any stories!

    Started R2 10/26/11. Lost 6 pounds first week. Bad drops, no lost weight, the holidays did me in!

    For 4 years I stayed within 10# of my LDW. But, in last year, packed on 40#!

    In general we have seen here on the forum that the best losses are achieved by sticking as close to the 500 calories as possible. Going below that day after day seems to lower your metabolism which is probably why Simeons came up with the 500 calories. He says you can omit something on a day when you aren't hungry and that doesn't seem to do any harm. I also don't like to see all carbs omitted for an entire round. I've seen too many women tank their adrenals and thyroid that way.

    I'm on VLCD 28 and I'm using intermittent fasting. I was stalling a lot mid-round so I started eating only during a 8 hour period during the day (11 am to 7 pm). It seems to have broken the stall. It's been six days now and I've been consistently losing. Just dropping down a bit each day and maintaining a 0.5 pound daily average overall so I'm very happy with it.
    Good Karma

    Yes, I think the small amount of carbs does help the body cope when one goes off the diet. Thank you for your informed opinion.

    So, no carb helped me get over stall

    So, on day 6 of VLCD I didn't lose anything. I decided to ask this question, and give it a try. I decided to fast on day 7...but, I couldn't! I had dinner. I ate fish with peppers, zucchini, onions doused with lemon juice. I did not have the fruit, and I never eat the melba.
    So, I lost 2 lbs yesterday. I feel great. No carb helped me get over a stall, and more importantly, it pushed the hunger right out of my life. But, because of the danger of quickly gaining a in P3, I don't think I will continue. I am going to return to protocol.

    But, if anyone has done a fast or no carb, during hcg p2, I would really like to hear about your experience.
