    Protocol and many on this forum say 150IU - but I had other advice to start at 200IU. I've been on 200IU Corion injection for almost 4 weeks, no problems at all with hunger. On skip days hunger does come up - but I've learned to curb it with coffee. I think it's best to do small trial and error on your dosage - everyone seems to be slightly different. And it depends on the brand and how you take the dosage (drops vs. injection).

    For example: lots of strong advice here that Corion brand is really "strong" so to lower the dosage to 125IU. I did it one day at 125 and major hunger - 200IU works for me. Male, 40's about 220lbs.

    I am in P3 (day 8) and did not cheat at all. I got TOM at the beginning of this phase and was up almost two pounds above LIW. The past two days I dropped back down. I have eaten mug cakes I made sure to make lots of cut up veggies, dips, deviled eggs, and broccoli cheese casserole. It wasn't easy but I did it!

    2nd Loading Day 11/26- 155
    1st VLCD 11/27- 153

    I didn't cheat, and I was down 1.4 on the 26th. But, I was sick on Christmas eve and Christmas day, so I wasn't all that tempted.

    I have a scale that measures muscle, water, fat and BMI. It is a Taylor brand scale that you can buy at Meyer.
    I may take a few steps back but that will never stop me from trying to run forward!

    My first dose I started at 125 with shots to the belly with insulin syringes. I was mildly hungry most of the time, not ravishing hungry. I got some advice here to increase the dose. Dr. Simeones suggested IM doses and supposedly this requires less than injecting into belly fat. Once I increased the dosage, I finally settled on 175 ui daily while injecting just under the skin vs, deep into the msucle. Too much HCG can be the same as too little. So, more is not better. I think that's what I'm dealing with now in the 2nd batch....the dosage is off and I am miserable.

    Masbirdies, read your blog today, good stuff! You're about a week ahead of me, I'll try the gas experiment and see what happens. Keep it up, the end is near!!!
