    Old thread, I know... I'm adding my experience here because when I was looking into 2.0 this round, I didn't see a lot of recent activity on the 2.0 threads, and if anyone else is in a similar situation, figured more info can't hurt.

    After multiple rounds on the OP (the last one a year ago), I was introduced to 2.0 on VLCD1 by someone on another board here. I downloaded the book, read it, and decided to swap beginning on VLCD2. Full disclosure: I have tweaked the OP over the rounds to help me with food aversions that come up for me during rounds, and have been somewhat "rogue" (mixing veggies, using protein shakes, eating Fage, mostly).

    Today was VLCD8, and I love 2.0. My first week losses were 8.4lbs, which isn't lower than OP for me (it's actually a bit more). I've had trouble eating the full amount of my 2.0 allotted calories in protein. It's just WAY too much protein, and from my experience with keto/LCHF over that past year, will kick me out of ketosis if I eat it all (your body turns excess protein into glucose, so keeping protein in check when concerned with ketosis is important). Having the wider ranges of food available (hello salmon!) is so wonderful! I feel much more confident in my ability to stick through 30 days this round. I don't add the MCT or coconut oil, but haven't been worrying so much about Omega 3s and 6s from my proteins. I've been eating 10-15 grams of fat per day (contained in my proteins). My body seems good with it.

    Will update again at the end of my round and P3.

    I am thinking of going a little more in this direction. I have never had the breadsticks and only one apple. I dropped the apple today and had a protein snack, small, and then a little more protein at dinner. I am stuffed..actually full for the first time. i did not eat breakfast but did not think about it. I may download the book tonight and read on my way into work tomorrow on the bus. I guess we will see what happens tomorrow.

    Welcome to the dark side, april! Bwaaahahahaha! Just kiddin'! I also never ate the breadsticks and usually only had one fruit, an apple. Switching was easy for me, and it's worked very well! VLCD12, down 13.2lbs. Best losses in any of my rounds and I'm literally shocked when I see the scale in the morning. My best losses have come o the days after closer to 18-20 grams of fat, and while I'm not going to aim for that each day, I now certainly won't shy away from eating a whole egg instead of just the white, etc. Hope your tweaks work well for you in your quest for the 140s!

    Thanks.. I am not sure about fat but that is interesting. I have keto strips and a meter I may check at some point to see.

    Hey all

    There is a few of us who are still active that did the HCG 2.0

    We posted in Hcg 2.0 411 Information thread - Hcg 2.0 411 Information

    Here are a couple of my posts on how I did it. Good luck to you both.

    I would use my fitness pal app to check your tuna, as not all are that high, and some have more protein than other depending upon light, or white etc.

    Yes I ate more than on OP, as we are having more calories per day, plus larger portion of protein. I liked it as well

    I listed lots of P2 recipes , and there is lots of dressing for salads etc that are on OP.

    The balsamic vinegar I used is by Renee, with no sugar, and only 1g of Carbs per tablespoon

    I can't comment on the MCT Oil as I didn't use it on Phase 2. I saved it for Phase 3. I just don't agree that it should be a part of P2.

    That's why I say, I didn't follow everything he writes. I would say just try it and see how you do.
    There were certain foods in OP, that didn't work for me, and I avoided. So same really in HCG 2.0

    I cooked with broth or lemon juice. Or grill on the BBQ

    Let us know how it works for you.

    I did a modified version of HCG 2.o
    I basically upped my protein according to the BMR calculator multiplied by .4

    I mostly ate from the OP , except for I did have pork chops, tuna broccoli, , once in awhile
    For the most part I ate chicken , added whey protein to my coffee in the morning and ate turkey jerky (zero carb) before bed.
    In the chart you have to keep total carbs under 30, so you may have to adjust portions. If kept at 30 and below then no need to count calories from veggies.

    Also the fat from your protein is ignored because it's a by product of the protein.

    Not sure if any of that answers your questions or not.

    Do you have his book?
