Hey, I am new to this forum but I am beginning my loading tomorrow for my second round. I did HCG last Sept. and lost 38 lbs. I managed to gain back 15 lbs due to the fact that I am a baker and I am a professional chef's assistant for special events. I am also what many would call a "foodie" and an emotional eater. Being on HCG is really a huge thing for me as I go for the 30 plus days with basically nothing to eat. I do the injections from my Anti-Aging Dr. Last time I did HCG I experienced crushing grinding hunger that was one of the most painful things I have ever been through. The extreme hunger did not improve until the last 3 days on HCG. I hope that changes this time.
