    Constantly HUNGRY

    I have finished phases 1 and 2. I stayed HUNGRY. I am now in my second week of P3. I am still HUNGRY. I really don't want to gain this weight back and I am fighting it daily. I lost inches everywhere EXCEPT the hips-lower stomach area. Any advice?

    Unfortunately, if you were hungry throughout the whole of P2 it is very likely you lost the wrong kind of weight and even some muscle. Losing muscle means you have a smaller "furnace" for calorie burning. That, coupled with a metabolic slowdown from too low calories too long without HCG support is why regain is likely. The hunger is an indicator that your dose is not right for you. Continuing in P2 without addressing the hunger issue also makes it probable that you will not be able to stabilize at your last day weight.

    Your report that you shrank on top but not on the bottom is another indication that the HCG was not able to work in the right way.

    I'm very sorry, but there may be nothing you can do to prevent some regain at this point. I know that is not what you wish to hear, but it is what you may be facing.

    At this point, I think the best you can do is finish P3 as best you can and then go into one of the healing eating plans like Fast Metabolism Diet, Lyn Genet's The Plan, or Trim Healthy Mama. You may gain for a little while with any of them, but it should not be a lot and you should be able to at least maintain until your body recovers.

    To try to get control of the hunger, work on your leptin signaling. Start off with a huge protein breakfast of about 50 grams of protein. So eggs plus some meat will get you there. This will help stabilize the leptin that's driving the hunger. Good luck!

    I'm guessing you were either using fake drops or a dose too high of prescription hcg since you had hunger all through your round. So sorry this happened to you!

    I went through a doctors office for my diet. My HCP was just as baffled as to why I stayed hungry. I started around 197 lbs and 20 units. Because I was hungry at about 188lbs I was reduced to about 15 units daily. I am 49 yrs old and don't know if I am starting the perimenopause/menopause time of my life as I have not had a menstrual cycle these last 2 months. Some days my hunger is manageable and others I can hardly control it. I have lost 29 lbs. Thank you for your advice.

    Hey there..in P3 are you eating good fats and protein until you are full but not overstuffed. Are you counting calories. I don't count in P3. I eat if I am hungry good fats and good proteins and do not limit calories. If you are in week 2 of P3 are you stabilizing..in your 2+- window? Can you up your protein. I agree with grammy and get a nice solid breakfast in.

    I'm assuming your dose started at 200 iu then was reduced to 150 iu since many clinics mix in that very potent way. 150 might very well have still been too high for you. We always recommend skipping a shot and assessing your hunger after 4 and into the evening. Hunger is almost always from a dose that's too high and it results in poor stabilization. If you do another round, I'd suggest starting at 125 iu and assessing your hunger at that dose.

    Good luck!
