    HCG is a hormonal protocol. It's possible it could be beneficial in clearing up your skin condition.

    If not the HCG itself, the elimination diet aspect of the protocol might help as well.

    My skin was horrible(dry, flaking, itchy, blotchy, spots & blemishes) in all of my rounds by the end of P2. But miraculously by the middle of P3, it would transform into beautifully smooth re-hydrated, even-toned skin - almost like it was revitalized or "turned over" during all the unpleasantness just weeks before.

    Jumping in here! Now given I'm 55, I have old lady skin issues, but HcG has cleared up my rosacea and my excema. The benefits start for me in P2 and through P3. I only run into trouble when in P4 I over indulge in spicy food (rosacea) or cheese (excema)

    I have to say, I noticed today that my skin looks AMAZING and Im on day 5 of Phase 2. I'm not sure if it's the Hcg or the Lipo blend or what, but my skin is absolutely glowing and tight. I'm eager to see if it stays like this for the rest of the round.

    Hey, Jen. You mentioned the lipo blend on another thread. What are taking and how much do you inject each day? Or is blended into your HcG? Thanks!

    Yes, I'm a long time lipo fan. It was a huge part of my health regiment before the baby. I'm updating my post to explain more about it, because it's really powerful stuff. I'm using Diet Doc's lipotropic injections right now. They have tablets too, but I have never tried lipo tablets before. I can say this- it's STRONG. Like, the most potent blend I have ever taken. I had to lower my dosage while on P2. I suppose that's a good thing tho- now it will last longer lol. So, Dr. Rao prescribed 50 units. i dropped it to 30 and will talk to him tomorrow to see what he suggests and how I feel.

    Ps, I've been trying to finish this reply for hours- my son keeps jumping on me and asking for netflix cartoons on Mommy's computer lol.

    Hi,

    I've done the hcg diet two times. Both times I had severe cystic acne. I'm severely allergic to soy and whenever I consume it I break out. My skin clears up immediately if I avoid it or if I go on the elimination diet.

    Once I go off the diet my skin clears up again. All the best, with your diet.

    Hi Merange99. I find your report a bit confusing.

    There is no reason to be consuming soy in the protocol. It's not a part of the allowed menu. It's not surprising that soy triggers your acne though, as it is a known hormone disrupter.

    The HCG menu is a kind of elimination diet. You might want to compare it to whatever other elimination diet you have used and see if you can figure out your acne trigger.

    You know, my hubby was the first one to introduce me to the true magic of lipo and sermorelin (hgh therapy) etc. He's a former chippendale and competing professional natural body builder (whew, that's a mouthful) so he's a pro at these things and really opened my eyes to their benefits. I don't think they are absolutely necessary on phase 2, but man, I can tell you I just love how they make me feel, and thats' why I recommend trying them.

    When I'm not losing weight, I was happy to use them to increase my energy, motivation and nip my waistline fast (a welcome benefit if I knew I was going to be in a bikini that weekend). Anytime I was going through that phase of "I just don't feel like working out today" I would add lipo shots to my routine, and have plenty of energy and drive to get moving. I also noticed a huge improvement in my mental clarity and sleeping patterns- these are a big deal for me, especially since I've been a notorious night owl my entire life.

    If you decide to give them a try, I'd love to hear what you think. I hear plenty of feedback on Hcg but I do wish more people would share their results from Lipo, B12, Sermorelin, etc. I think a lot of people see these as "celebrity" weight loss and anti-aging strategies, but they really are a great option for just about anyone.

    Hi Leez,

    I developed acne in my mid 20's and couldn't figure out why the sudden onset. Then 5 years back I did the elimination diet and found out I was severely allergic to soy. It made me break out terribly. I have avoided it ever since.

    I am doing the original protocol and only consuming the approved foods. I agree this diet is basically like the elimination diet but with the hcg. I have taken prescription HCG (NuImage) and each time I do this diet I break out. As soon as I stop the hcg, my skin starts clearing up. For me at least, I think the hcg breaks me out.

    When I have done a round with the homeopathic hcg, I never had any acne issues.
