    So it is perfectly logical to skip tomorrow, and use that skip day as a diagnostic test of your dose. There is no reason to go through the whole of P2 uncomfortably hungry, when that is not necessary. Also, you can lose muscle if your dose is off, so its important to get it right.

    Skip tomorrow and report back on how you are feeling in the early evening. That should tell us what we need to know. If your dose is off you will either be a lot hungrier and weaker, or your hunger will go away and you won't feel so drained and fatigued.
    Could it be that 125IU is too much for me?

    I'm doing the 40 day phase 2 in order to lose 40 pounds.
    That's what I'm planning to do to skip the injection tomorrow morning, and still continue on the 500 calorie diet. I've thought about this if the clinic doesn't increase the dosage from 125 to 150 IU then I might have to take matters into my own hands. What I mean by that is the syringes that I don't get to use them for skip day, I would inject the 125IU of hCG plus an additional 25IU therefore totaling 150IU of hCG in the mornings. I told the clinic why they don't provide patients with higher does, and they said that it would be dangerous.

    We don't know how the skip day will play out yet. You could just as easily be underdosing or overdosing. The symptoms can look the same for both, which is why the skip day is needed. Let's see what happens tomorrow evening for you.

    You are correct that you stay on the 500 calorie diet on the skip day.

    Its not dangerous to have higher doses, it just can cause problems with the effectiveness of the HCG. When a woman is pregnant HCG floods the body with HCG thousands of times more than what we take for this purpose. I'm not sure what they think is dangerous about it.

    Do you mean that I could be losing normal fat, and structural fat, instead of abnormal fat?

    No, I mean you could lose muscle mass if the dose is off and isn't corrected. And since muscle is what powers your metabolism furnace, it is critical to preserve your existing muscle mass.

    I weighed 202.4lbs this morning. I did skip the injection. Like you said if I feel no hunger, and weakness after 4pm today than that means that my hCG dosage was low? If I still continue to feel mild hunger pangs like I've been feeling for the past few days and weakness. Then that means the dosage 125IU is high for me at this point?

    During the VLC days I've been feeling mild hunger pangs/pains, weakness. I come to think of how is this hCG diet going to resolve my problem with excessive hunger, abnormal cravings, and slow metabolism whenever I start on phase 3, while on phase 2 feeling miserable.

    If I continue feeling weak, and hungry though out phase 2, then I would need to constantly spend 80$-90$ for vitamin B12 shots. The problem is that I work at Whataburger a fast food burger joint, and I need energy to move fast, and not get tired easily. I'm thinking if I must continue on 125IU of hCG while feeling miserable then I would need to either work part-time, or take 21 days off from work until I start phase 3.


    But as of yesterday I went to bed at 11pm, and woke up at 8am and have today off from work. In the early morning hours I've felt slight hunger and lethargic, as soon as I got up I started to feel a little better. As of now right after eating breakfast I feel like close to my old self, with some slight hunger on occasions.

    You've got it backwards. If your hunger decreases....dose is too high. If it increases....dose is too low.

    I'm glad you are feeling better this morning. But how you feel throughout the day does not matter in regards to diagnosing dose issues. It only matters how you feel in the early evening. If you report back in after dinner (say 6-8pm your time) we should be able to figure it out.

    Can the same thing be said for feeling weak/lethargic/fatigue/tired/sleepy?

    It could be related, or you could be drinking too much water and it could be the result of an electrolyte imbalance. Let's see how you are feeling this evening.

    What if my current hCG dosage has caused me to lose muscle fat, would I be able to regain all the muscle fat back with the correct dosage?

    You are not going to gain muscle during P2, because you need extra protein to do that, and in P2 our protein levels are just adequate.

    I don't think you are in danger of any major muscle loss at this point in your round, being only a few days in. Try not to worry, you'll be on the right track soon.

    What I want on top of all of this is I want to have a NORMAL metabolism, cravings, hunger at the end of phases 2, & 3. I just thought of just losing 40 pounds this phase 2 round, then get to do phase 2 again next year to lose additional 20-25 lbs in order to reach my goal weight of 150lbs. That way I don't spend money all at once.

    Following the HCG protocol give you the best opportunity to do just that. Most people find that cravings are gone after their round, and it just takes normal will power to resist former trigger foods.

    The HCG spares your muscle mass while reducing your fat stores. When you enter P3, your metabolism is burning at a high level. That is why you must eat enough in P3 to keep those fires going. More P3 problems are caused by undereating than overeating. You can sabotage youreself by trying to stay too low calorie in P3.

    If you have a successful P3 stabilization, you have a very good chance of keeping the new low weight as your set point with fairly normal eating. However, if you go back to eating patterns that put weight on your in the first place, that will happen again.

    HCG will help you reset your metabolism, but its not going to fix underlying issues like low thyroid or adrenal problems. If you have any of that, it needs to be treated separately. HCG does elevate thyroid levels while you are on it, and that can be why someone might feel really good on P2, but lose that sense of well-being after they are into maintenance a while.

    The time between rounds is extremely valuable, because that is when you have a chance to practice what you need to do to keep your results.

    Wanting to be normal again was my goal with HCG too.
