Thread: How rogue have you gone?

  1. #1

    How rogue have you gone?

    Hey all! I am new to finally signing up to this forum, but I've spent many times searching to make sure I've done the hcg right!
    So.... I've done two short rounds of hcg with my last being completed in April for a total loss of ~35lbs. My second round had a long stall at the end since I'm getting close to my goal and I just couldn't take P2 any longer - I'm sure we've all been to that point.

    I'm thinking about doing another round - hoping to go as long as I can take it. I guess my question is how far have you gone rouge? Has anyone been successful with one meal containing carbs (brown rice, quinoa, squash), off protocol fruits, or protein products (Arctic Zero) or protein bars (I love a quest bar or FitCrunch)? I want to know if I go this route will it be disastrous...... Also, how many calories did you push and still maintain weight loss?

    I did quinoa a couple of times in p2 and still had good losses. I also had zucchini as a veggie and that was fine too. I definitely wasn't rogue in P2 as those were my only switch outs.

    I might have to try quinoa then! I should say that my first round was through a doctor and they didn't follow the original protocol to a T. I was able to eat things like turkey, cauliflower/broccoli, and other berries. So I guess I was always considered rogue

    Honestly... this last round I was pretty rouge. On my list of items (which produced a loss of 14lb in 21 days even with a HUGE cheat)

    Watermelon
    Chicken thigh (one bite lol)
    zuchinni
    mixing vegetables
    Vega One and Sport performance Protein
    Peas from my garden
    0% greek yogurt

    This doesn't even begin to address the foods I ate on my bad cheat day. I'm convinced I would have been closer to 20lbs lost if I hadn't gained 5 back and taken 5 days to lose it, but thems the breaks.

    Before you ask, I do not think my deviation from protocol had anything to do with my cheat one week in, that was totally family stress and bad decision making.

    That's still great losses. My first round was more rogue and my second was closer to the original protocol and I had serious trouble stabilizing after the 2nd. So far I'm up 4lbs from my LDW which is fine, but I think 15 more lbs and I'll be officially at my goal 😁

    So, Kay, with the protein and the yogurt were you able to be under 500, or did you aim a little higher?

    I had a disastrous experience with cottage cheese! I tried using it as a protein and my blood sugar crashed hard! It took me two days to recover! Too high in sugar for me.

    I was between 450-700 most day. I do hot yoga 2-3 times a week as well so on those days I let myself have extra protein calories.

    I'm pretty darn rogue at this point in my HCG experience:

    Mix veggies
    Diet soda
    Broccoli
    Cauliflower
    Carrots
    Green beans
    Full blown P3 steak days (with the fat!) to break stalls
    Peanut butter days (4 heaping spoonfuls of natural peanut butter in the morning, fast for 24 hours until the next morning) to break stalls
    Eating 700-800 cals a day
    Eating extra protein
    Having small handfuls of nuts every once in a while when I'm feeling despserate
    Fat free cottage cheese

    I'm losing really well! I'm only 8.8 lbs away from my ultimate goal weight that seemed IMPOSSIBLE when I made it. I've lost a total of 65 lbs on HCG and a lot of that has been from going rogue.

    The most rogue I've ever gone in three rounds was:

    1) Having 4 oz. of protein instead of 3.5 oz,
    2) Having both of my grissini at once as an afternoon snack.
    3) Eating 4 egg whites for breakfast if I would be missing a meal later in the day while traveling.

    In all of these situations, I still lost ..75-1.0 lb. per day., but I've never tried off-protocol foods, correction or stall-breaker days in P2!

    I'm doing a 100% plant based diet to lower my cholesterol and prevent heart disease. My protein is usually a serving of mashed sweet or white potatoes or a serving of brown rice and beans (season with cumin, chili powder, jalapenos). I'm not a fan of quinoa (feels like I'm eating air LOL) so I don't eat it. For salad dressings, I make the fat-free "Caesar" dressing, which is really quite good, or I'll take a tablespoon of guacamole and mix it with balsamic or champagne vinegar. I don't limit fruit to the Simeons protocol fruits, but allow myself one cup of any fruit - grapes, pineapple, blueberries, kiwi fruit, whatever. I keep Ezekiel bread in the freezer and once in a while will cut off 1/4 piece of bread and use that as a grissini serving, since it's a whole grain and not a processed Melba product. I allow myself any low cal veggies and don't limit it to the Simeons veggies. So broccoli, carrots, bok choy, green beans, eggplant, yellow squash and zucchini, mushrooms, etc. My P2 "chili" is black beans with mushrooms and tomatoes, and occasionally I'll have a portabello mushroom "burger" instead of my other protein serving.

    I'm losing about 0.6-1# per day. Since there's literally *no* fat in a plant based diet (other than any small amounts of guacamole or nuts you might add), the losses are terrific and you can keep eating this way post protocol since it's the healthiest diet out there. It's the only diet known to prevent and even reverse heart disease.
