Thread: Doing 2nd time HCG diet after baby

    Doing 2nd time HCG diet after baby

    I have been reading that you shouldn’t have feelings of hunger on the diet, otherwise you would be losing normal fat instead of abnormal fat. I am on VLCD day 3 and I do have some hunger the last two days. The hunger goes away after my meal but I always feel like I want to eat more. The hungry feeling or wanting to eat is more prominent during the day and usually goes away after dinner. Like this morning I had 100g of shrimps with a little bit of tomatoes and now at 11:30 I am feeling a bit hungry again now. Not hungry like I want to eat my child but just a feeling of wanting to eat something. I am wondering if my dose is right. I am on 150iu. I haven’t been eating my full 500cal either. I have been eating 2 portions of shrimps with the tomatoes and one apple a day, which comes to about 350cal. Should I eat more?

    Yes, you should eat more. Staying close to the 500 calories gives you the best result. You can add another fruit and increase veggies to get there.

    You also can split your meals up so that you eat 3 or 4 times instead of 2. For instance, you could have an apple for breakfast, lunch and dinner protein and veggies, and a snack of the other fruit. That might keep your blood sugar more even and work better for you tomorrow. If not, then you can try a skip day the next day.

    You have to have 4 effective doses in a row before you can do a skip day to test dose. After tomorrow, you will have had those 4 and you can skip your dose, and we can see if you need to increase dose or decrease it.

    But lets see how tomorrow goes for you. You might find adjusting your meal times and increasing your calories takes care of things. Mild hunger just before meal times is normal, and not a reason to change dose.

    So I have been trying to eat more, eating some cabbage with my shrimps to get more calories in. I have been splitting my meals into three, breakfast with protein, apple for lunch and protein again for dinner. I still have a hungry feeling or maybe it’s just a craving to eat something. Even looking at chips makes me want to eat it. I can ignore the feeling and usually about 30 mins before I am due to eat again I will be very hungry. The feeling of hunger or wanting to eat anything goes away after dinner which is around 5pm. I am on VLCD day 5. I didn’t skip my dose today. So am I just craving for food I can’t eat or am I really hungry and my dosing is off? I started out 121.6 after loading and today I am 114.6 and I do feel my stomach area is smaller.

    It really depends. Several things may be in place. First, the first week you can have some hunger if you didn't load quite enough or properly. It is also normal to have some hunger just before regular mealtimes. Hunger that rages after you've eaten is a dose problem. Strong cravings can also signal a dose problem if you can't ignore them.

    So with dose related hunger and cravings the way to identify is that they don't go away when you eat, and the hunger can be almost painful it is so strong.

    If you are able to drink something and the hunger settles down, its likely not dose related. Or if you give in to the hunger and it continues or worsens, it is dose related.

    Help!! I am gained 0.4 today instead of losing. I feel like I am not losing as much this time around compared to my first round. I am on VLCD day 7 and I only lost 6lbs versus the first round I lost 10lbs. It is definitely harder this time around as well to not just give up. I was also on my period since Monday, so maybe this was part of the reason? The last time I only did the diet for 23 days and I lost 19lbs and was able to maintain the weight off, I started that round at 130. This time after my baby #2, I started the diet at 119.6, after loading is 120.6 and today I am 114.6. I want to get to 105lbs. But the weight aren’t flowing off compared to last time. I don’t think I am doing anything differently except where I got my hcg from. Is this normal?

    Normal weight loss for women is a half pound a day averaged over the total of Very Low Calorie days. So you did much better than the average the first time. Starting the round and your period at the same time could definitlely change your loss pattern. It is recommended to begin a round at the end of your period instead of the beginning for this reason. Your first week loss is normal, just not spectacular. On a short round (23 days)
    , most people will lose about 12 pounds.

    Once your period is over and considering your loss total last time, it is quite likely that you will reach your goal this time. There is water retention during your period, so you may see good losses as that subsides.
