    Hi Megan,

    I hope you have a great round! I do 3.0 because I my regular diet is keto - but 2.0 is much easier then the original protocol for sure!

    So far it is going well. I'm not hungry, and I have trouble eating all the calories I'm supposed to. I love that I am getting more protein. On original protocol I would get weak, no issues with that!

    I'm planning on this being a longer round so I will be skipping a shot on day 7. I'm usually keto, so this version fits with me well. It will train me to eat what I want to be eating anyway.

    Today is Day 7. I'm down 1.6 lbs. from my starting weight. I chose to eat festive foods during Thanksgiving so I got to get rid of that weight first (4 lbs.) Yesterday was my first skipped shot, and it was no problem at all. One day this past week I could only manage to eat 520 calories!

    I figure my numbers will be slower than most, and I'm okay with that because I know it works.
    ** I just stopped Metformin 3 - 4 days ago, and my fasting blood sugar is staying low. I just didn't want it going too low, so coming off that medication might slow down my numbers.
    ** I just had minor surgery on my leg (varicose veins) on Monday and I know I have a lot of inflammation going on, so that will probably slow down my numbers as well.
    ** I'm also hypothyroid, and on medication, and that tends to just slow things down.

    The big thing that I can't stress enough is that especially the 2.0 version, I am changing my eating habits. The foods I am eating now I'll be eating for the rest of my life. Meat and vegetables. Some day I might be more low carb than keto, and that isn't right now. With the metabolic syndrome kicking in, I watched my body change shape while my weight didn't change and that was disturbing. Same weight, and all of a sudden my clothes aren't fitting any longer. I had a stomach that I never used to have and my waist disappeared.

    When I was low/carb keto before, I was only counting net carbs, and I think that was a big mistake. I love some of the protein bars from kirkland, and they had 22 total carbs, and only 5 net carbs. When you eat 2 - 3 of those a day, I don't think there's any way for my blood sugar to handle it properly. I even knew I was getting a sugar rush from them and kept eating them anyway. Sigh.

    I'm still here, and still trucking along.

    Hi Megan,

    Some people can eat more carbs, I limit mine to 20 total, not net. I also track my calories, I eat too fast and miss the "satiety" signal. I find I am most successful when I eat whole, unprocessed food. It takes more time to prepare my meals, but I do big batches and reheat in the microwave.

    I don't lose weight on keto, but I do maintain well.

    Good luck in your round,

    Lynne

    December 1st. I took my second set of measurements today.
    When I started loading, my weight was 202.8.
    11/24 was my first low-calorie day and I was at 206.4. I gained 4 lbs. in water weight eating crap, basically.
    12/1 my weight is 200.4.

    So although I've only lost a couple of pounds, the big thing is that I'm down 7 inches through my waist, belly, and hips in one week!
    Since I have a scale that computes body fat percentage and a host of other things here's the real reason for doing hcg...
    My body fat percentage has dropped by .6% or 1.2 pounds, and my muscle mass has increased.

    As far as I'm concerned, the true magic of hcg is that it preserves lean body mass.
