    What are the ingredients? Numbers might be ok, depending on how much you use, but ingredients matter.

    An egg yolk has 5 grams of fat, and only one whole egg is allowed in a P2 meal. It may be too much fat to add.

    Vegetable oils are inflammatory. Soy is a hormone disrupter. And sucralose messes with your gut biome.

    What does that mean to the HCG diet? It could mean your body holds a little extra water weight to deal with inflammation. It could mean the soy may interfere with the HCG hormone. It could mean a less efficient digestion of your foods.

    That being said, you can try it and see how you do. If it is a small enough amount, and you don't notice any problems, then it may work for you.

    I find that wine vinegar, a little stevia, pink salt and chopped fresh cilantro and fresh cracked pepper make a great P2 dressing. You might give something like that a try and see if you like it.

    Soy, canola, and other seed oils are extracted with heat and pressure and the process creates traces of toxins. They also have high levels of Omega 6 fats, which are inflammatory, and distort our Omega 6 / Omega 3 balance. Olive, avicado, and coconut oils are cold-pressed from fruits and are a better choice.

    P2D5: -1 pound. Total loss so far: 5 pounds.

    Did too much yard work yesterday, so expected some inflammation to pause the losses, but it didn't seem to. I don't actually feel sore, but I had to stop part way through mowing to rest because I got dehydrated and weak. Once I rehydrated with some pink salt/potassium water (to restore minerals/electrolytes) I was fine. There was apparently too much sweating going on.

    P2D7: -1, total of 6 pounds down

    No loss yesterday, so was hoping for a whoosh since its the first week still. No big whoosh, but a pound is good.

    May get out for some shopping later. Or lawnmowing.... I have a jungle in the backyard. But there are so many wildflowers--- I think of it as a spring meadow.

    Yes, make your own dressing....it is always better! After a few days in P2, I don't want anything that has any kind of unnatural taste. I hardly even use sweeteners

    Hi y'all! Last day of April and I'm on load day one... just in the nick of time! I posted a couple of questions over in the medical issues section, but I also wanted to post something here to say hi and re-introduce myself since I've been away for a while. I'm Jenny. I live in NW GA. I lost 60 lbs back in 2010 using HCG and kept it off for 5-6 years. Then life and emotional distress tanked everything. I was able to try again and got back down to 155 (twice!), but the older I get, the easier it comes back, and the harder it is to keep off. This round is very different than previous rounds bc I am navigating it through some health and hormone issues. I feel like my body is a perfect storm of crap right now, thanks to perimenopause!

    I turned 50 last year, and I gain now for seemingly no reason at all! It would pack on every month with my period, in like 2 days, but then wouldn't leave. I've put on 25 pounds in the past 2 years. And a lot of it is around my middle, where I never used to carry weight. I know that once I get it all back off, keeping it off is going to require a different way of eating and living than has worked in the past, thanks to hormone changes. And frankly, I want to do things differently. It's just hard.

    I was in law school until early March but my health took a nosedive and I had to step away. I'm also sandwiched between being a caregiver of two elderly parents with serious health issues and two young adult children at home with autism, so obviously I have no stress in my life at all.

    I want the second half of my life to be better, and I know that means making meaningful changes now. I need to be strengthening my bones and muscles. I need to be letting go of things that aren't serving me. And I need to be surrounding myself with people and things that bring me joy and contentment. These are all things that, while maybe not directly related to HCG, they are intertwined with my overall health journey. They are also things that weigh on my mental health, which definitely has an effect on everything else, especially my weight.

    I got up to 207 in January, and LDN plus HRT have gotten me back down 8 lbs. I'm praying HCG will get me the rest of the way back down. My Load day 1 weight/starting point: 198.8.

    Anyway, short story long, I'm glad to be back.

    Hey JennyV, I feel your pain! But I know you can succeed.
    I was always in the 130s (when I ran daily) or 140s (when I regularly worked out with weights); then I hurt my knee and started menopause . . . got up over 190 for years. Then at 61 YO, I got a high/abnormal A1c test so I tried hcg. When I ended my first round, I switched to a ketogenic diet. Between keto and three hcg rounds, I lost 55 lbs in a year. I have stayed with the keto diet, and the only time I regain is when I don't exercise, or when there's a family reunion/party where I overindulge in carbs. So I know it can be done!

    @gz9gjg, I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but I'm glad to know I'm not alone in it!

    You are certainly not alone. I started HCG at 210. (I've been as high as 235--so miserable.) It took 5 rounds to get all the weight off because I had some regain in between along the way as I learned about maintenance. You definitely have a challenge ahead of you, but you will be able to do it if you stay focused. And healing will happen along the way. HCG works no matter what your metabolic challenges are. Having that confidence was so motivating to me, cause I was kind of a mess too.
