    November P2'ers

    I made chicken soup last night with 100 gr chicken, 400 ml canned chicken broth, a lot of ginger and garlic, and thinly sliced celery. And I've eaten 4 cough drops. The scale didn't move yesterday or today, still 245, but I don't think there's much I can do about it. The canned chicken broth doesn't have have many calories and says its 99% fat free. I guess that 1% is the culprit. Has anyone else broken protocol and used canned broth? Did it stall you?

    Of course, what I really want is to send my husband out to get me a big bowl of ramen or pho. Sigh. Ain't happening!

    Hope you all are doing well and losing.

    Good luck!
    I used Swanson chicken and beef stocks and broths(those containing only vegetable juices and no starches or sugars) almost every day on P2, and would still lose 1 lb. or more each day. They have different varieties containing different ingredients, so check labels carefully.


    The only time I stalled was after eating shrimp , strawberries, cabbage, and cooked tomatoes.

    My cold is mostly gone and I dropped from 247 back to 243.6. I think the 3+ lbs. were the result of sodium from the broth and inflammation. Thanks for the advice on broth and on inflammation. I'm out of panic mode.

    Good luck everyone!

    Anyone still out there? Just want to report that I stalled for a 4 days and then dropped nearly 3 lbs. So that's good news.

    I'm just past the half-way point for this Round of VLCD (I'm doing 42 days) and took a break yesterday. Joined some friend's for a b-day celebration at a Japanese restaurant. I love Japanese cuisine and know that it can be very light so I decided it was worth the risk. I avoided the tempura, mostly, and really enjoyed the different tastes and textures of everything else - and even a little warm sake! Scale showed .2 wight loss this morning. I'm being very careful today and hope the scale won't jump up tomorrow.

    Hope you're all doing ok and facing the glut of food EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK! with serenity and grace.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for all the support ladies, I hope everyone does well on their HCG journey. I'm at 116.6 and decided to stop my shots. I took measurements everywhere before but what really matters to me is the belly area and I went from 36.5 to 33 there which is great. I've lost a total of 11.2 lbs this 21 day round and probably have 8-10 more to go to get my stomach back to flat. I'm starting back up on my daily burn routines on Monday and hopefully I'll stay at 116 until my next round in February.

    BTW day 2 since LIW yesterday and I'm starving so I plan on eating a way bigger portion of protein tonight at dinner. My plans for turkey day are P3 peanut butter cookies for desert and sticking to veggies and turkey for dinner. I may even bake myself some low carb bread to enjoy with turkey. Good luck everyone and see you next round!

    Round 3 - Injections

    So im ending week 3 of P2 (down 19.4 pounds in 20 days) and I just received my order of HCG today because my other finished. So I have a 5000 iu HCG and I wasn't able to purchase a bigger vial to mix my HCG in. I was only able to fit 4mL of bacteriostatic water with the 5000iu, so how much should I inject? I tried to research it and could find anything so I decided to go ahead and inject 12.5 units. Is that okay, or should I inject less?

    This may be an inappropriate place for me to post my question and if so I apologize lol. But I begin my round November 9th and this is the first time I've done HCG and made it more than 3 days without cheating!

    I believe it's 10cc's of BAC water for 5000 iu's:
    5000/10=500 iu's
    Assuming your syringes are 1cc, that means that one full syringe is 500 iu's. When you divide that by the 10 marks on the syringe that means 50 iu's in each mark. If you are doing 150iu's you would pull up to the "3" or ".3" mark on your syringe to make 150 iu's.

    With they way you've done it, it's going to be difficult to get an accurate dose, especially if you have to adjust it for any reason but you've got to work with what you've got. 5000/4=1250 in every cc, so every mark of the syringe has 125 iu's in it. What dose are you hoping for, 150iu's?

    Are you starting a new round or just extending the one you're already on?

    My syringe is 1/2 cc (mL) and I'm hoping to reach about 150 iu. So would that mean that I would double the number that you've given me? So, 6 units?

    Nope, I'm not starting a new round. I began this round on November 9th and ran out of my HCG last week..I had ordered new HCG at the end of October but it got lost in the mail so the company sent me a new batch and it just got here this weekend. I did go about a week without injecting which I know is really bad but had I stopped I would have messed everything I worked hard for. I was tracking my ketones and I was still burning the same amount of fat though, if that even means anything lol.

    Thank you so much for helping me!

    Hmmmm....I'm not familiar with the markings on a 1/2 cc syringe so I'd be hesitant to suggest which number to pull to, but your mix will make 625 iu's in a full 1/2 cc syringe so if you divide 625 by the number of markings on your needle, you can figure out how many iu's are in each marking and then add up how many will make 150 iu's. I wish I could give you an exact number but I just am not familiar with your syringe size.

    As for missing a week of injections, I've heard of some people taking week-long planned interruptions who then start taking injections again and continue with their Phase 2. I've never done it but if it works for them, maybe it will work for you!

    How long of a break since you've had an injection?

    So, that would put me at 12.5 units on my needle which is the number I came up with yesterday but I wasn't too sure. You helped a lot, so thank you very much. On the next round I'll have to follow what everyone does because this was way too confusing.

    I went 10 days without an injection while staying on the 500 cal diet 🙈 I was still continuing to lose at a steady rate. This week my weight fluctuated almost everyday, but that could have been due to TOM and I wasn't hungry or exhausted so I figured I was fine lol
