    I considered that, but I have done that even on my serious loss days, and I seem to do better on the days when my carbs aren't too low. Because I'm not doing melba, I end up with less than 15 carbs if I don't have any apples, and around 30 if I do. My protein is pretty capped by the calorie restriction (well, everything is ) but it looks like the days when my carbs were only slightly less than my protein I did best. Thanks for your feeback! Anyone else want to weigh in? (no pun intended)

    Yes I have had the metallic taste before, it does go away, I believe it is part of the ketosis thing. Brush and brush again, drink more water or try a tea.
    Congrats on the 1.8 awesome!!!

    I had that for my entire last round and part of the way into P3 without reprieve.

    My naturopath spoke of it being my liver detoxing. Now, she's a moron, so I wouldn't trust that but a broken clock is right twice a day, so perhaps this is one of those times.

    Here's her picture:

    Stinky breath = ketosis.

    Subject: Inquiry for Dr. Belluscio regarding dalton units and hCG absorbtion (from moi):

    Dr. Belluscio,

    I was scanning through different literature and came across some information that has me questioning a sublingual application of hCG.

    I was wondering if you could speak to the truth of this.

    - ~300 daltons is the maximum weight of a protein that can be readily absorbed by the submucosal membranes
    - Insulin is over 5000 daltons, which is the reason why there is no sublingual applications offered, forcing diabetics to inject themselves
    - hCG is even larger still (30000+ daltons)

    If I am understanding this correctly, then no hCG would be able to be absorbed sublingually via drops.

    Thank you for your time and consideration of this question.
    Dr. Belluscio's reply:

    Subject: Re: Inquiry for Dr. Belluscio regarding dalton units and hCG absorbtion

    Hello:

    Good point, which has been the subject of my interest for the past 25 years.

    We have, on one side, the Double Blind studies concluding oralhCG decreases fat masses from conspicuos body areas more efficiently than placebo.
    http://www.oralhcg.com/english/in2.6.htm

    Also in rats, using the intrarectal approach, a mucose quite similar to sublingual mucose.

    http://precedings.nature.com/documents/5781/version/1

    But: how is that oralhCG has a metabolic action, and cannot be detected in plasma using the standard radioimmunoassays for hCG?

    And here comes a new approach to detect hCG in plasma: High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).

    Sorry I cannot be more explicit, since our Research program is underway, and cannot disclose any detail on the protocols.

    Anyhow, many thanks for your smart inquiry.

    Best regards,

    Subject: RE: Inquiry for Dr. Belluscio regarding dalton units and hCG absorbtion

    Dr. Belluscio, I cannot properly express my gratitude at your speedy reply to my question. I appreciate you taking the time to address my concern, as far as your own research will permit.

    With your permission I would like to post the content below on an hCG forum (http://hcgdietinfo.com/hcgdietforums/f22/), where others may view it to help disperse some of the anxiety that has grown over the issue of dalton weight. I would remove all e-mails and refuse to provide any means of contacting you or your clinic.

    Would you be comfortable with me posting the information below?
    Dr. Belluscio's reply:

    Hello:

    Feel free to post the information on your web.
    A word of caution ,however: until we gather all the data that will allow us to fully sustain our working hypothesis from a Scientific point, our Research Center keeps a low, academic profile.
    We will appreciate your cooperation on this issue.

    Perhaps you could brief these investigations explaining your readers that a serious and responsible research program is actually underway.

    Thank you for your understanding,

    Oh my gosh!!! Today is vlcd 2 and not only am I starving but I am fighting the mind games already.....I have been reading the forums and loved hearing about everyones losses. But now I am trying to talk myself out of doing the HCG. I guess I need to finally admit that I have a huge problem with food. I am dreaming about it and thinking about it non-stop. I sit here and try to tell myself that I can eat whatever I want to and just start working out. Then I look at myself in the mirror and am totally disgusted with what I see and get some motivation back. I know that I need to lose weight but I feel like I am fighting a losing battle. I am sorry I am being so down but I am just going crazy here.

    The first few days are the hardest for me mentally. I find myself rationalizing if "just one bite" will hurt... it will!!!
    If you can stick it out for the first week (or even the first few days), the craving subside and your body adjusts to the 500 calorie diet.
    You can do this, and you will be happier and healthier for it!
    Good Luck!

    I toyed with those mind games at the beginning of my first round and on occasion give in to temptation but after you loose about 10 lbs and start to see your body change, that's when the motivation kicks in! Challenge yourself and visualize the good, clean food this diet consists of cleaning out your body. it's definitely not a losing battle, were all in this together!
    Starting weight: 182.2 lbs

    Goal weight 135!

    Sunshine, I felt the same EXACT way. On day 2 I was trying to make excuses to eat something I wanted.. not needed, wanted. I was hungry (at least I thought I was). What was really going on was I wanted something I knew I couldn't have. It really is as simple as that. When I ate whatever I never wanted to eat, the MOMENT I was restricted I started getting so anxious and "craving"/"needing" to have that chocolate or that burger. I really do know what you are going through.

    But you know what.. here I am on R1 VLCD 34 and I honestly rarely feel the same things anymore. Do I want chocolate, yes. But I realized it's not true hunger, it's desire. I finally said "F" it (pardon the language) and decided that what I was doing was to better myself. To feel good about myself and NO piece of chocolate or burger was worth more to me than that. I also know this isn't forever. When I get to where I want to be I can still have chocolate, I can still have a burger... I just can't have it all the time and I'm ok with that.

    You CAN do this! <3 *hug*

    Sunshine, you need to make up your mind that you are worth it. These first week losses would take months with eating whatever you want and working out. Do you have any reason to want to put your weight loss off?
