Thread: P3 Progress

  1. #13
    Oh you are right! I have issues with cortisol/adrenals already as I have some stress with kids with health issues and we homeschool so any form of stress even a lot of exercise can up my cortisol. I am just doing walks and occasional bike ride. I tried exercise classes and I think it spiked my cortisol and too much fasting can also. Cortisol can cause weight gain and resistance to loosing. I think small balanced meals work best for me overall.

    I woke up to 123.6 2 days in a row so exactly 1lb above LIW but that's within range. I've been doing so many veggies along with my meat and I get full pretty quickly. Having dairy daily.

    I'm still surprised at how low my appetite still is at almost a week into p3. I'm just not very hungry even at meal times. I can tell it's time to eat because my blood sugar tells me. I am focusing on lots of veggies and meat with some 2 percent Fage yogurt smoothies with collagen. I've been so busy with the kids and family I haven't branched out and tried new recipes although I meant to do HCG Chica's P3 plan it's been too busy with 5 kids. At some point really want to try some more of her recipes. For now just sticking with the normal ones.

    I'm following this thread with interest - 5 kids!! Well done. I have 2 little ones and that is hard enough. Zero time for exercise, unless I get up at 5am or some stupid time like that.
    I am also in P3, my first go at the HCG. I started another thread just now in the P3 zone because my doctor's program is adamant there should still be NO FATS in P3! I'm finding that tough to do and tough to understand. Try doing P3 with no fats it's nearly impossible to eat the 2200 calories he's set me as a goal with just lean protein, veggies and fruit! I'm a few days in and my body feels sick of meat already.

    Aw thanks! It is busy! Phew.

    Oh my! Please do add fats Leez talks about this. Your body was using it's own fat during p2 and in P3 your body uses the fat you eat to stabilize and helps you become a fat burner. Just as long as keto no sugar or starch. Def add in fatty meats and some coconut oil and avocados. You don't have to eat a ton of it but def add some fat in! It's healthy too! Also I take fish oil capsules to help my body recover the omega threes.

    Nice to meet you and hope the rest of your p3 goes great!

    I'm stumped this morning. My scale might be acting up. May change the batteries in it. First it said I weighed 84 lbs um no. Then it said I weighed 124.6! Which is almost 2lbs over my LIW of 122.7.

    Do I do a correction day?

    I did eat a bowl of steamed summer squash and lean beef at 8:30 pm which is quite late for me. I also drank some electrolyte drinks that were sweet but I didn't think they had sugar in them before bed.

    I don't look fat or bloated but this was not a happy thing to wake up too. I thought I'd have a loss possibly. I did not overeat at all yesterday in fact I was very careful with my portions and ate normal foods beef/veggies/greek yogurt. In fact I've been trying to eat lighter.


    Leez, what would you suggest? A clean protein day? I feel like my body wants less veggies and a bit more fat.

    I would get a more reliable scale. I use an old doctor's office balance beam scale, no batteries or electronics at all. Yeah, it takes up space but it is very accurate.

    My old scale did this a few times and I ended up throwing it out and getting a new one. Taking out the batteries and putting them back in seemed to help a bit, otherwise it would get stuck showing the same weight (the wrong weight).

    Don't do anything until you change your batteries. I wouldn't trust that reading after getting a wonky one like 84 pounds. Especially since you are not feeling the extra weight.

    I'm not recommending this, but if it makes you feel more in control, you can do a high protein day. But don't do a correction day until you know for sure you need one. Go with your gut feeling that you need more fat.

    In Linda Prinsters HCG Diet Guide, she gives a sample of a high protein day that can be used when you are getting too close to your 2 pound gain limit.

    It is:
    Lunch: whole can of tuna with mayo on lettuce or celery
    Dinner: big portion of protein and small salad with 0-1 carb dressing

    If extra hungry in the morning: 2 eggs

    The above are not meant to replace a steak day. You will likely drop back about a pound after the protein day.

    '

    Most digital scales have to be reset to erase their "memory" of your last weight. So basically, you have to turn it on, let it zero out, turn it off again, then do your weigh in.

    Shifting the batteries may have accomplished the same thing.

    Thank you Leez! That is excellent and I think I will do that tomorrow. Today did the best I could but I was actually hungry so did eat what I needed too and just was careful about portions. Going to check the scale batteries tomorrow.

    Well, I don't know what was going on with the scale yesterday. Maybe one of the kids tripped on it and moved the scale around or something because this morning I got on and I was 122.4 so down 2.2 lbs and back to my LIW. I didn't have to change any batteries or anything.

    I had sensed my body was needing more protein and fat so I ate a large plain burger breakfast with some onions and mushrooms. Then had a protein collagen smoothie for lunch. A bowl of ground beef for supper with hot sauce and mushrooms and then a super small slice of keto chocolate cheesecake for desert as I had been craving fat/cream cheese. I felt like my body needed the fat in it.

    I did cut down on the amount of veggies for some reason I seem to be more prone to gaining on summer squash sauteed. Its sad because I love it but in time will add more in.

    Anyways I appreciated the idea of the clean protein day and will keep that in mind in case something happens again. Thank you Leez!

    MissJess, I'm not sure what you call "summer squash" but remember, all squashes as well as cucumber are closely related to watermelon. So the larger ones can have more sugar and starch than you might expect. I generally buy the smallest zucchini that I can find, and I eat them sparingly.
