Thread: This Diet works! and here's the proof

    Well....it's been 2 years and @#$%^!!!!!! here I am again. Only good news is I called "knock it off" at 190 so I didn't get as fat. same deal as all the others...held well then slipped a bit, accepted it, slipped a bit more "oh that's not too bad" and then blamo! hit 190. water again key.

    Well my time would not allow a quality HCG round so I thought I'd try Keto...and I am NOT impressed. at 2 weeks I've lost 7 lbs, on HCG I've CONSISTANTLY lost 15lbs by this time. I'll do a comparison write up on it when finished, I'll only stick with it a bit more than stop for the summer, be a bit heavier than I want d just avoid the harpoons at the beach.

    Unfortunately, your experience with keto is not unusual. A seven pound loss in two weeks would seem to be a pretty good result by most standards, but with keto, it is artificial loss caused mostly by the water dumping that happens when you are in ketosis. When you cave and carbs pass your lips 5 pounds (or more) of that 7 can come back the next morning as water stores needed to process carbs re-balance.

    By the time someone gets to the point that they use HCG, they've usually already tried many other diets that didn't work for them. Seems logical that the reason would be underlying metabolic issues and hormone imbalances. No regular diet is going to really address those. But HCG does, and so many that can't lose weight any other way have success with HCG because it is a hormone and metabolism adjusting protocol.

    Keto does seem to work well for men, and for some women that can lose weight by conventional methods. But even then, women especially will hit a wall where their thyroid and adrenals become starved and function tanks. It doesn't look like you are in danger of going down the long-term keto road, but thought I'd mention just for information and for others reading.

    Thanks Leez, well I called "knock it off" after 3 weeks and using Phase 3 methods to stabilize at 185, not where I want to be but it's a matter of timing, I don't want a weakened immune system with C.V. going around. I did get back some of my discipline with water and food so this lose should tide me over till I can do a proper round again.
