    I started the ECA Stack (there is a thread about it if you search). I need it to help me in P3. I wrestle with the urge to just overeat once I am here. It's almost noon and I have yet to eat. That is never the case in my reality. I don't plan to use it non-stop or for long periods of time but I totally understand the need.

    I may not be actually hungry but for some reason my brain wants to me eat until I am uncomfortably full before I feel satisfied. What I am taking takes that away. Or at least it is so far.

    I also struggle with being able to stop eating once I start. I'm hoping that this will help me reconfigure my relationship with food.

    Twinma, I'm so impressed with your weightloss!! I would love to be at your weight! **Inspiration**

    I wanted to try HHCG before we decided to sell it. I didn't need to lose much. I lost 10lbs in 1 wk

    I believe there are so many various factors on the hunger issue from genetics, mental, eating habits etc. I think some will find the HCG is enough and others can benefit from appetite suppressants. My wife didn't need any additional help while I found an A.S. helpful. That is why we developed some A.S. products that also benefit you in other ways so if someone needed the help they would have it. Just be careful with what you try. There are a lot of bogus products out there.

    My own personal experience has been this:

    3 pregnancies. EACH and every single pregnancy- I DID NOT change my eating habits. Now remind you I started at over 300lbs- so I was obviously eating a Very high calorie diet to sustain that. Pregnancy = hcg in your body. EVERY single pregnancy- instead of gaining weight like most women- I LOST weight- and significant amounts of it. Obviously this doesn't represent causation- but in my mind I like to think it was because of the hcg- again, I didn't change my caloric intake or exercise more or less or anything. Aside from being pregnant- nothing in my lifestyle/daily routines changed. So in my opinion- hcg DOES and can work even on a higher calorie 'diet'. You obviously aren't going to get the huge losses as quickly as with VLCD- but you still should have losses (if my theory is correct LOL).

    According to "Pounds and Inches" Dr. S stumbuled upon this treatment while treating some young men in Inda for Froehlich's dease. The side effects of the disorder made the young men fat. HCG was the treatment to correct the disorder. He noticed their appetites were supressed and they were loosing fat althought they were not on a calorie restricted diet. The VLCD was what he came up with later soley to encourage faster losses in obease patients. So, it will work on higher calorie diets. Obviously it will take longer to reach your goals. However, an supressent shouldn't be needed. If you are still hungry, likely your HCG dosage needs an adjustment.

    You should never ever take an appetite suppressant with hcg if you want the weight to stay gone. Here's why: HUNGER is the signal that the dose is wrong. If you don't hear the signal and keep on the diet with the wrong dose, you will be losing the wrong kind of fat. When you get to goal and start eating again, your body will quickly try to replace the fat you lost. You will also lose muscle which is not good.

    Hcg is not an appetite suppressant itself. I hear people mistakenly say that all the time and it's simply not true. The reason you aren't hungry is that when hcg is doing what it's supposed to, your body is releasing a great deal of fat that you are burning for calories instead of ingesting them. When it's not working, those calories aren't being released and you're hungry. So then we work to tweak the dose to get to the happy place. If you are weak and hungry and no dose adjustment fixes it, then I tell people to stop because it's not working for you. So you don't want to suppress what tells you if things are right or not.

    I agree with hcg stopping hunger because you are burning the calories so you shouldn't be hungry. I also know people are hungry for others reasons and it's not always true hunger. Dehydration, emotional issues, etc. can cause what we "believe" is hunger. I have used an appetite suppressant patch for just these issues. It helps with the emotional need to eat. Sometimes eating is our pacifier.

    I agree you need to listen to your body as far as hunger on hcg, but also feel it's ok to do something to help my appetite especially when I know it's from transitioning to hcg as well as emotionally liking food.
    70 Lbs lost on hcg diet homeopathic drops

    So this is exactly what has been happening.

    I bought the 26 homeopathic drops. I started at 116 on the 9th, started the drops on the tenth went up to a 119, today is the 24th...I am 110. I have stalled a lot. (I am only 5'1, my healthy weight should be 105, I am trying to loose weight from my baby) I have been stalling every three days or more. I have felt like I have been starving the whole time. I still have a little less then half a bottle. I feel as today should be my last day. I am starving so much, I have felt like crying. I can't keep up with daily routine of even being a stay at home mom. The lady on the phone said to start walking more, and perhaps breaking up the food through out the day. So I am today. I don't want to quit, I hate feeling like a quitter. Spending money, starving, for only 6 lbs? Advice?

    I would work on adjusting your dose. There is a lot of helpful information on here about adjusting. I believe you need to skip your next dose and see how you feel. Then, you would either increase or decrease the amount of drops you take depending on how you feel.

    As for taking an appetite suppressant in P2 - I think if you're going to do it for mental reasons, it's ok as long as your dose is right. You should first make sure you're not physically hungry with the dose you're taking, then if you need something for mental support, go for it. I've tried appetite suppressants before but never found anything that didn't have massive side effects. I don't think it's healthy to not eat much throughout the day. If you don't, you'll likely gain weight when you start eating normally.

    Just my 2 cents

Whatever works for you though is good =)
    I agree with the fact that the main problem is within our mental state. Most people cannot give up eating, as they cannot overcome this desire on mental level. Therefore, the problem cannot be resolved that easy. For this purpose, there can be used some good otc hunger suppressants. Taking chemicals is not the safest thing. Still they can stop hunger sensations instead of you.

    It's detrimental to the protocol to take an appetite suppressant. You need to know if you're hungry because that is dose related and if you don't fix the dose, the weight is easily regained and you lose in the wrong places.
