    And yes, I started at a lower than normal dose: 2 pellets, 3x/day. That was based on my previous experiences with rx always being too high/always having to lower no matter how long I waited between rounds and a few posts I read on here from someone else who had a very low rx dose who switched to pellets and went down to 2 pellets 3x day. I realize (probably better than almost anyone else) that there is no ďone size fits allĒ dose - that just seemed like a good starting point based on the similarity and my experience with rx.

    Adjusting Intermountain pellets?

    So, around 6:00 it was like a switch flippedÖhunger nearly gone. So weird. If I drop down to 1 pellet 3x/day and thatís not quite right either, do I have to be on a consistent dose for 48 hours before adjusting again?

    3 days. 48 hours to get there and one more day on full dose. Then you skip and assess direction again.

    If you feel you know after two days which way you need to tweak, then you can do that. I'm not sure it would still work to go less than 3 pellets a day. But then, we can be surprised sometimes.

    Got it. Thank you. Iím hoping that given the low level of hunger I wouldnít need to try and lower further, maybe need to add one at one of the intervals as you suggested before. I donít know. I hate being the broken weirdo test case for ďletís see what the lowest effective dose might beĒ but Iím committed to this so I will soldier on and we will find out.

    Leez - thanks again for your help. I am not quite hitting 48 hours yet but the early signs are pointing to 4 pellets being my sweet spot. My hunger was so much better the night before that I was a leery about taking 2 pellets instead of one that night. I was pretty hungry yesterday morning coming off that skip the day before, and it was a different hunger than a dose too high, so I added one pellet at a slightly earlier interval yesterday and readjusted my schedule to account for that. I felt MUCH better in the afternoon/evening, my hunger was much better, and I was a whole lot better this morning too. So 1 pellet 4x/day seems to be good for me. Thank you again for all your advice and guidance, I would have been lost without itÖand starvingÖand probably would have called it quits early thinking it wasnít working for me.

    I have to say I am pleasantly surprised about how closely the homeopathic option aligns with the rx and actually does keep hunger at bay on the right dose, just like rx. Even with all the posts of people using them without issue and with great results, being the anomaly that I am, I was skeptical and was extremely nervous about whether they would work for me. So happy to be able to report they do. Now, hereís hoping I can sail through this round without many bumps in the road.

    Hopefully this helps someone thinking about trying the hhcg pellets either for the first time, or for switching from rx.

    Glad to hear the adjustment is looking to be successful.

    I am always amazed at the effectiveness of the homeopathic hhcg. By all logic it seems it should not work, but it does.

    It really is amazing and agree, on the face of it, it defies logic - but it truly does work. I was a skeptic but I have been fully converted. I am a believer!

    In case anyone is looking for help with pellets and is reading this thread I am updating with my new schedule after I was still having a bit more hunger than I should when dose is right and played around a little with timing/dose.

    4 pellets total still seems to be my sweet spot, but I found that 2 pellets at night 8:30ish and then 2 pellets at longer intervals during the day are most effective for me. I take 1 pellet at/around 8:30/8:45am and then another 1 pellet at/around 1:30/1:45pm then the 2 at 8:30ish pm. My body seems to need slightly more overnight/into the morning and then I seem to sustain the level/keep it even stretching smaller doses a little longer through the day.

    Having come off of the ďone and doneĒ of rx injections, playing with dose amount and times, having to take it multiple times, and the requirements of not eating/drinking for 15 minutes before/after taking a pellet(s) was a little intimidating and scary because I know how bad it can be when a dose is too high, and how good it can be when itís just right, so all those extras thrown in felt like it was going to be a rough road. It wasnít as easy as injections, but with the help I got here it also wasnít as difficult as I initially feared. Itís still slightly inconvenient to have to pay attention to when alarms are going off and remember when I last drank something (food is easy! Lol) or when I can next drink something, but itís not too terrible and I have kind of fallen into a rhythm/routine a bit after a few days.

    So, if anyone is considering making the switch to hhcg pellets from injections, donít be afraid! I will not say itís as convenient/easy as one and done with injections, but it has its positives too. Itís cheaper, there are no worries about bac water shortages and the mixing process/mixing to the right strength, and no needles (though for me, I got over that long ago). Also, no immunity fears and loss of this method as a tool entirely, which was a real possibility I was having to face despite following all the rules on timing and breaks to the letter, and sometimes longer breaks. From what I have read you do still have to adhere to the same number of days as a limit and the time in between rounds, so itís not a total free for all, but still a great option all the way around - and perhaps the only option for an outlier like me whose body seems to hate herself. Lol.

    So homeopathic Hhcg pellets allow the body to lose fat from the right places just like injections? Also, the body redistributes the inches in P3 in the same way? If it is really exactly as effective, I may consider pellets in the future. I have always used injections.

    I'm not sure you can say its exactly the same--people have reported various differences. But I can say that I've seen that people are able to stabilize from hhcg rounds just like you do from the actual hormone injections. And to me, that is powerful evidence that it is effective. If you were losing muscle during the hhcg round, stabilization at the lower weight would be unlikely if even possible.

    Adjusting Intermountain pellets?

    I agree with Leez, at least in spirit and from my early perspective. I am only 11 days into my round so I canít say personally whether this completely 100% mimics the rx injection process and reshaping, stabilizing etc. but what I can say with absolute conviction is that it FEELS the exact same. I have 0 hunger except meal times, my energy is good-better than before the round, in fact-all the very same things I have experienced before on rx during P2 when my dose is right, are happening now on the homeopathic pellets. I canít explain it, I was hugely skeptical while still slightly hopeful, and if there is a difference I could not tell you at this point what it is except for rx vs. homeopathic and the delivery system. There may very well be differences that I just havenít experienced yet, and I will document those as well, but right now in this moment at this point - if I didnít know I wasnít taking rx you couldnít convince me otherwise.

    Of course everyone is different - and if anyone is an example of that when it comes to HCG, itís definitely me, hands down - so your experience could be different and as they say ďyour mileage may varyĒ. But as an early first time switcher/user to hhcg, I truly cannot tell the difference.

    The pellets I used were 1 x per day. I took mine about 9 pm because that was convenient.
