    First, drop your “carbs”. This means your melba toast and grissini breadstick. Those are not always necessary at all and are purely a psychological treat.

    Second, drop your fruits, one at a time and see how you feel with each.

    You should at least try to eat you veggies and protein, you can "drop" you veggies if you need to.

    It is NEVER recommended to skip your protein servings! You need that protein and if you do not eat it, you may slow, stall, or gain.

    I am speaking from past experience and a lot of research on these boards. I hope this helps!


    Thanks for this....for the past 2 days I have skipped my 2nd protein and noticed I am (stomach growling) hungry in the morning and only lost .2 yesterday and nothing today. I am not doing that again. I am on R2 P2 D17 so I know I shouldn't be hungry.

    Day 5 and I'm about to give up despite losing 8 lbs!

    I am hungry all the time. Day 2 was the only day I wasn't ready to jump out of my skin from hunger. For the last 2 nights I have been near tears I am so miserable. I am snapping at my husband and completely miserable. Help! I am taking the Rx prescription hcg drops, 10 drops 3 x day. Any suggestions? I'm not craving sweets or carbs, it isn't cravings, those subsided pretty quickly. It's just pure hunger. Should I switch to the Triumph homeopathic drops? Oh and who else is on Nu Image prescription drops?

    Drink something satisfying like green tea or sodium free seltzer it helps some..Break up your foods some, and eat your apple in the evening when you are grumpy. Make it good in the oven with cinnamon and stevia or something..Those things should help some..Also adjust your dose may..Like they say to which is skip a dose if you are more hungry then you need to take a bit less if you are more hungry than you need to take a bit more.

    Also make sure you are using a great quality brand of hcg. Both New Edge (now Rejuvi Medical) and Nu Image have great reputations for prescription hcg. Triumph 40 homeopathic drops are popular too.

    How I generally deal with hunger in my head is I tell myself that feeling is not my body wanting food it is my body eating fat

    another not protocol thing you could try eat only one fruit and eat an extra serving of protein. protein seems to fill you up.


    Started at 179 (5'3") June 5th 2010. Lost 40 pounds eating no sugar, flour, wheat, rice, or dairy, and eating 2 times a day breakfast and lunch. Stalled at 138 for 4 months then decided to do HCG.

    I am a late evening snacker. Just like on Atkins, I dont sleep as much on the hcg diet. When I am up late, the snack monster is kicking my butt. Now I have pretty much snacked on protocol approved foods, but I have had extra protein and fruit. Still have lost over 2 lbs a day. Need to work on the mental aspect of this thing and take my butt to bed at night.

    I also heard that adding the Diet Doc prescription hcg and lipo shots can help you sleep better. Does anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks grammy ~ I did cut the drops to 10 the past few days, and it does seem to help. I feel I'm still getting hungry when I shouldn't. I'm not having the "out of sorts" feelings which is good. Today I ate dinner per/protocal and was pleasantly full, then 1/2 hour later felt pretty hungry. I'm going to lower my drops tomorrow to 8. That shouldn't hurt anything should it?

    I am a newbie that just started the diet. I my load days were Thurs/Fri and starting the vlcd today. I am getting my hcg shots from Rejuvi Medical (used to be New Edge ) and am concerned about the dosage. They have me starting on 150iu with all the syringes with the instructions to give one injection daily and contact them again in a week to track my progress. Do I fill the syringes to .05 (halfway to the .1 mark on a 1ml syringe)? which seemed like a tiny amount compared to what everyone is recommending here but I figure they know what they are doing. Anyway, I had no problem whatsoever gorging for the two load days and am hungry this morning...not starving but hungry and would have no problem doing a third load day:-) I am concerned that I might be getting too much hcg and would need to lower my dose but I am getting such a small amount of liquid in the syringe that reducing is nearly impossible. I called their support line today and they said that they do not dilute the hcg, which explains the tiny dose, and I still didn't know how many iu's I am getting with each dose. Anyone know how to figure out what my current dose is or how to dilute it if needed???

    This is my fourth day and I have already drank 32 oz of water and a cup of coffee this morning. I'm taking the Nu Image prescription Hcg and they said to lower my dose but that doesn't make sense to me. My stomach thinks my throat is slit and is driving me nuts. So hungry! I am doing the. I think that's the proper abbreviation. I am 52 and am approx. 5'1". I'm not supposed to be hungry!

    I'm dealing with the same thing. I loaded on sat and sun 5/14 and 15 (loaded at disney....how fun is that!?). Started my vlcd yesterday and felt hungry all day (worse in the evening). Woke up today and did my homeopathic drops, waited an hour or so and had my grapefruit and melba for breakfast.....starving now! It's not so much the hunger pangs as it is the weakness and dizziness. I am taking 10 homeopathic drops 3x/day.....any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    How's it going, johnnysangel? Did lowering help?

    gunn, you'll have to ask your dr how much you're taking. I abhor those tiny, concentrated doses. I don't understand why some of the clinics insist on doing it that way.

    Atrueheart, what dose are you on? it definitely needs adjusting.

    skinnymeg, check on the homeopathic thread about your dose. Someone there will know the brand and whether you should go up or down in drops.

    Above all, use quality hcg suppliers or all else is shot!

    Hi grammy ...... on VLCD12 and down 11.5lbs. & I'm doing real good.

    I am now doing 8 drops 3 x day and have totaly stuck to protocal. I get "normal" hunger at meal time ..... and am pleasantly full, but seems like no more than a half an hour after I eat ..... I feel REALLY hungry???? Hungrier than before I ate. Not sure what that's all about. I did notice I'm not drinking as much as I normally do so I'm wondering if that's it. I really like my lemon water, tea, coffe etc..... just have been busy and haven't remembered!! Probably the problem????

    I only get hungry shortly after eating when my dose is too high still. Try 7 drops. You're doing great though!

    Thanks for the encouragment and advise ..... I will try the 7 drops!

    I'm pretty pleased with what's happening. I have energy, look healthy & sleep good. Who'd of thought all this and only eating 500 calories! I told my husband of my newest loss and he was very happy for me. I told him I was, too but that I still had 18 lbs. to lose and he said "Nooooooo you want to lose another 18 lbs. you don't need to". That was pretty cool ..... he's always been a sweet guy.
