Thread: Can I stop HCG Midway?

    Can I stop HCG Midway?

    Hi there! This is already my third round of HCG. I am on my 10th day of P2 and I am down to my last 2 lbs before I reach my target weight. Can I stop HCG midway through (2-3 days from now) I do not really want to lose more than than my target weight. Is there any safe way to stop? Can I ease out gradually? Thanks in advance!

    You shouldn't stop, you can plan on a short round of 23 doses. Just increase your protein so you don't lose more weight than you want to lose. You'll only have to up your foods for about a week so it wont' be long. Congratulations on getting to goal.

    Your weight loss will probably slow in the third week, most of us stall then. It's best to continue for the 23 injections, the theory is that much time is needed for the hypothalamus and metabolism to reset.

    You can start increasing your foods while taking HCG, but do it gradually and don't over do it. Just my opinion . . .

    What a great problem to have!

    You've gotten good advice. You do really have to complete 23 doses in order to stabilize well afterwards. Its the minimum time needed for the ability to stablize at your new lower weight.

    Do stay on the diet for the whole time, but increase calories until you see the weight loss slow and stop. It may only take a few hundred calories to do that, so to find your level, increase by 100 calories a day until the losses stop.
