October HCG Diet Support Thread!
 
Welcome to October! Feel free to post your stats or introduce yourself or ask questions! Info below originally posted by rebeccalynne15.


Last months thread

What is the HCG Diet?

Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a specialist on obesity and weight regulation, introduced a program that has helped many people overcome weight loss resistance. The program utilizes a natural hormone that is produced during pregnancy called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). Dr. Simeons’ theory is that HCG causes the hypothalamus area of the brain to trigger a release of abnormal fat stores. When administered in relatively small doses and coupled with a very low calorie diet, people routinely lose 20 pounds in 30 days. HCG has helped thousands of people lose those stubborn pounds. In addition to weight loss, many patients who have completed the HCG program also experienced many other health benefits, including a drop in cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.

How does HCG help me lose weight?

HCG appears to act on the hypothalamus, signaling the body to release stored fat into the bloodstream where it is then available to be used by the cells for nourishment. This alone will not cause weight loss, though, unless you reduce your food intake. This forces the body to use the mobilized fat from the bloodstream. HCG causes the release of abnormal fat without affecting structural fat and muscle tissue. Which means you lose in those stubborn areas--hips, thighs, buttocks and upper arms!

Do I have to follow a special diet while I take the HCG drops?

Yes. You must follow the entire HCG Diet Protocol as described in Dr. Simeons' manuscript, "Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity", where he outlines a special 500-calorie-per-day diet that was tested on thousands of patients. HCG is only effective for weight loss if it is taken while strictly following Dr. Simeons' HCG Diet Protocol, including the 500 calorie diet. Taking HCG alone (without the diet) will not cause you to lose weight. HCG takes effect when you reduce your food intake so that the mobilized fat will be used for your body's energy needs. If you fail to follow the diet you will fail to lose weight. If you only follow the diet without taking HCG, you are simply starving yourself because there is no fat in the bloodstream to burn. Simply put, both are required.

**************************************************
NOTE: THE HCG PROTOCOL MUST BE FOLLOWED EXACTLY, AND MANY OF THE RECIPES LISTED HERE AND ELSEWHERE ONLINE AS "HCG Diet Recipes" DO NOT FOLLOW THE PROTOCOL, OR ARE NOT INTENDED FOR PHASE 2, WHICH IS THE ACTUAL HCG + DIET PHASE. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO READ THE ORIGINAL PROTOCOL AND FOLLOW IT PRECISELY FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS.

This is the best reference I read for cycling. I had to read it 3 times through before I felt like I really understood it all though
http://www.happilythinnerafter.com/c...php?11-Cycling

I cycled between rounds. Here's my history:
I did 26 days of P2 (2/20-3/15) 163.6-145.4= 18.2lbs (not count load lb)
5 days of P3 (3/16-3/20) 145.4-148.0= +2.6lbs
28 days of P2 (3/21-4/17) 148.0-135.5= 12.5lbs lost
14 days of P3 (4/18-5/1) 135.5-138.3= +2.8lbs
29 days P2 (5/2-6/2) 138.3-127.9= 10.4lbs
26 days P3 (6/3-6/27) 127.9-131.3= +3.4lbs
28 days P2 (6/28-7/25) 131.3-118.7= 12.6lbs
22 days P3 (7/26-8/16) 122.5-124.4= 1.9lbs
50 days of P4 (8/17-10/5) 125.5-130.1= +4.6lbs
started back P2- October 6th loading

My husband did a full P2, 10 day P3 (had trouble stabilizing), 7 day P2, and a full P3- and doing that extra week cycle in there helped him. He stabilized perfectly after that.

Posted yesterday in the sept oct thread:
Hey ladies :)

Last night of loading. Starting again tomorrow. I somehow gained back all the weight I lost on my last round in June. Pretty depressed about it. Not sure how it even happened. I did P3 and P4 okay I guess I just didn't stabilize and never tried to correct it until it was too late. Sigh. This time I'll get there and stay there! Planning on doing a round until just before thanksgiving, taking a break and cycling until Christmas with a short round.

Wish me luck, I couldn't have done it before without your support.

:)

I indulged in about every sweet in the house yesterday. I am going to do an apple day today to get myself back into disciplined mode and keep on to day 40 with a very clean round.

mysticmomma1879 10-16-2012 10:18 AM

Having an apple now. Had a bottle of water and 2 cups of coffee with a little stevia. Been up since 5.

Woohoo!!! My HCG came in the mail today! (took 12 days to get here from India, including customs time, not too bad!) Tomorrow starts loading day 1 for me! I lost 23 lbs the first time I used HCG back in July, and then my husband came home from deployment and my eating habits went down hill quick because all he wanted was yummy food, so I gained most of it back unfortunately :banghead: I cant wait to start seeing results again!

tiffCMR78 10-17-2012 08:33 PM

Hey ladies. :)
Down 8.6lbs in two days! Woo!! All of that was loading weight, so I guess I won't count it. Sooo much water weight! Tomorrow will be the loss hopefully below loading. I.cant.wait!

Re: October HCG Diet Support Thread!
 
How is everybody doing?
I'm on VLCD 15 and down 9lbs or 11lbs (counting load weight)... it's looking to be a slower loosing round for me. I can't complain though- I'm down in the normal range for weight again :mrgreen: and still dropping, albeit slowly.
