Thread: VLCD4, Very Hungry, Not Losing Weight!

    VLCD4, Very Hungry, Not Losing Weight!

    I loaded for 2 days on 16&17and today is my VLCD4. I loaded pretty good too but I'm extremely hungry and haven't even lost an ounce! I've done this diet 2 years ago and lost 25 lbs and this time I'm 30lbs heavier than when I last started 2 years ago (added pregnancy weight). I'm obese (bmi 31) so it's not like i don't have much to lose. I'm on the same dose I was last time. I ordered from safemeds. It's 5000iu and I mixed it with 15ml saline and I take 0.5ml twice a day. I tried 0.4, 0.5, and 0.6ml doses and hungry every day. The most annoying part is I haven't even lost an ounce! I don't know what's wrong. The hcg was in customs for about 17 days (freeze dried kind), could it have lost potency? And one day I forgot to put it in the refrigerator but it was still in a dark place at about 70degrees. What's happening, I'm so frustrated! I'd appreciate your response, thanks!

    You can't just monkey with your dose every day and find the right one. The usual cause of hunger is a dose too high. Skip a day's worth of your hcg and see how you feel the next day. If better, then the dose is too high and you should lower to about 125 -135 iu. If no better, then try raising to 175 for 2-3 days. But it's most likely too high.

    Can you tell me how many milliliters will make 125, 135, and 175 IU? I was just told to do 0.5ml (which I also did last time), I'm not sure of the IU. Thanks!

    What did you mix and in what proportion?

    I mixed the 5000 HCG (freeze dried) in 15ml (total) saline and I take it sublingually. I started with 0.5ml, went to 0.6, and now 0.4ml. I can't figure out the 125, 150, 175 IU. Thanks!

    I don't do sublingual. I do injections.
    Regardless... every 0.1 ml in your mix is 33.33 units of HCG.
    0.5 ml = 33.33*5 units = 166.65 units

    I can't comment on sublingual at all, but
    a) I am not sure it is OK to mix it with saline. May be it is, but please check if it keeps the mix potent.
    b) did you wrap the vial in foil preventing any light from going in?
    c) do you keep it refrigerated?

    .375 is 125 iu. Crystal, most who do sublingual mix with saline.

    I did not wrap it but it's behind a lot of stuff so it's kinda hidden. Also, I did forget it outside for one day (vlcd1) but it was under the bathroom cabinet in dark and the temp in my house was at 70degrees. I still haven't lost an ounce!

    Colleen: if I skip one day of hcg (for dose altering purposes), should I still be on the protocol during that day? Thanks!

    I would buy an $0.88 pregnancy test at Walmart and test it.
