Hello ladies so as we've seen there are many ladies that have already done the HGC diet or who are starting and I wanted to create a space where we can support each other, share tips, reciepes and track process.
So here everyone is welcome. When posting lets include these stats so we can give everyone an idea where we are and where we are tying to end up weight wise and also how long you have been on the program
 
 
so again please include (if comfortable):
 
1) when you will start or when you did start program
 
2)which method you chose (drops or injection)
 
3)starting weight and goal weight (a picture would be great of starting weight and progress
 
4)how many pounds you are dropping a day
 
5)any receipes that you enjoy and  would like to share
 
6)any tips or tricks that have helped you stay on the diet
 
7) and lastly how often you plan on updating us on your progress
 
So lets get to losing weight and inches so we can achieve own personal goals and help each other along the way!

This is a very great idea Shay! ClapI've been lurking and lurking in the HCG forum but still proscratinating. I think this support forum will be a nice kick for me to get going.

I think my one concern is; Do i have to eat Organic food?...you know organic ain't cheap, so i was wondering if I could cut corners.

Jay22 it is not required to eat organic but of course its better overall. Personally I didn't buy organic food and the protocol didn't say u had to, to see results so come on girl and join the club!

Great thread! I had been lurking in one of the other hcg forums for a couple of weeks before I bit the bullet and decided to order. I ordered the homeopathic drops from a seller on ebay on the 16th but since I'm in England and he is in the states, I still haven't received them, still waiting anxiously.

I really went to town on this though. Straight after, I decided that I would also like to try the injections so I bought 5 vials from all day pharmacy. Also ordered a mixing kit from some american company. Waiting for all of them to arrive.

My plan is to do a short 23 day round before christmas with the hhcg
and since there are no immunity issues with this version after a one week break, I will move on to the injectable kind for a 40 day round at the begining of January.

I have 80-90 pounds to lose ( I refuse to weigh myself until I have the hcg! lol)

Will update all particulars when I receive the hcg. Here's hoping it will be tomorrow!

I would like to join this group. I am starting on Monday 11/30/09. I am not ordering anything yet though. I am going to the clinic to get it. They accept payment plans.LOL. I am going to do the injections. I would like to lose 40 lbs. I will start reading Dr. Simeons guide this weekend to prepare me to do this diet the right way. I have to lose this weight. Oh... by the way someone asked if B12 is important, yes, if your losing any substantial amount of weight B12 is important to take it will prevent fatigue, hair loss etc.

Hey Shay,
 
1) I started HCG on Nov 10, 2009.
 
2)I started with the drops and changed over to the injections.
 
3)My starting weight was 216.6, and went up to 218.8 after my load days. I am now down to 202.2 as of 11/30/09.
 
4) It varies anywhere from .4 to 1.6 daily, but after the load day it was as high as 2 to 4 lbs daily!
 
5) the Chili is so good!!!!!http://www.drjosephaiello.com/uploads/THE_HCG_DIETER_COOKBOOK.pdf
 
6)Drink lots of water at least a gallon a day!!!!
 
7) I will attempt to update everyday!!
 
This has been a life changing experience for me. I have tried every diet in the book and although some worked. I would always get frustrated because I like quick results. Well, HCG is quick and the motivation is watching your weight decrease daily. I didnt grow up heavy so it's harder for me because I had no idea on how to change my eating habits. Now that I know what 500 calories looks like I think I will be more concious of overeating and skipping meals, which was the case with me! I would go all day and not eat then towards the end of the day I was eating everything in sight!!!

Okay it was my first load day and to tell you the truth I didnt eat like the doctor told me to.  I can't just eat and eat and eat.  But the things I did eat was fatty foods like Mcdonalds and I did have a big dinner.  I really wasnt all that hungry today but I dont know if it was because of the HCG or what. Is it important to eat a WHOLE LOT during your load days?

Hi Ladies, will I started on Nov 28 loaded up on Thanksgiving leftovers.  At first I couldn't figure out how I went from 176 to 182 Cry.  Well by my 3rd injection Aunt Flo came by, so that plus load = 182.
No injections day 4 did injection day 5 because of feeling hungry and also it was a light flow.  My new WT is 170 Clap.

I am going to give this a try ladies! A co-worker is on a Dr. monitored/administered version of this and has virtually SHRUNK right before my eyes. I had ruled this out before finding this thread think that it was a Dr. prescribed process only.
I'm 6'3" and have passed the 300lb mark (even though I carry it well) I have a gut and I absolutely want to get rid of it.
If I'm reading correctly the injections are more productive than the drops??
Where should I start?


Posted By: disrupteddiamon
Date Posted: Dec 03 2009 at 2:36pm
I think the injections are more productive but it is truly an opinion

Its just an insulin needle if you don't feel comfortable giving yourself injections into the muscle

its pretty simple

Idid not know about this diet until 3 days ago when I read about it in the other thread. Since then I have been googling, reading and watching youotube. Last night I stayed up until 3 am gathering information. Soooo
I decided on injections, I placed my order for hcg with alldaychemist. I ordered  (6) Hucog 5000 IU vials.I also purchased B-12 injectables I did not purchase a kit, I have access to the syringes and the mixing supplies. I cannot answer how long my supplies will last, it depends on the administration mode. If I switch to sublingual I will have to reorder within the month

Thanks ladies for all this info. This information is very helpful for those of us who are looking at starting HCG. I'm starting on Jan 1, so myI want my load days to be Dec 30 and 31 (can you say last round of alcohol on New Years eveLOL) I'm not sure where I will be purchasing my HCG, so i was going to look to you ladies to help me out.
Can you include the website where you purchase the HCG(drops, injections, spray) and the cost? That would be really helpful. You know a sista gotta have a budget for the New Year, and the HCG is at the top of my list.
Thanks Ladies!!

I think you all are wounderful. I truely appreciate you all sharing your journey.  I'm looking to purchase  the hcg injectables. One company charge  1,500 including doctors vistes . Another site offered injections for 250.00 per unit.  I was told in my case, i would need 3 unit to get to my idea weight.  I would truely appreciate feed back, I'm  not sure if i  should used any of these two companies, would  I be paying to much or to little? Considering 1,500m to 250.00 is a drastic difference in price. thank you all Thumbs%20Upand happy hoildays .  Oh my starting weight is 235 my over all goal is 135.

WHOAOuch...you can do HCG shots/drops for SOO much less. I encourage, no, IMPLORE you to read the HCG thread (it lead to the development of this Support Grp thread). You'll find a wealth of info abt HCG including vendors. Many have chosen to use ADC (alldaychemist)--they definitely offer value for the dollar (see dimein09's post & the links for adc --page 6). There are also US vendors that cost less than $250 for what you need.
 
Also for additional info go to hcgdietinfo.com

I keep wanting to do this, but I worry so much about how safe it is.  Also, do you have to use any pecial products like soaps or anything like that?  i got that impression from one of the sites i went to.

@ 2nd Chances....

 
Thanks a bunch! I actually checked this out Friday and found out about Jay Robb Whey Protein Shakes. I tried the Vanilla flavor and OMGSmile it was so good!!!! I mixed some strawberries, water and some ice and wow I created a Mcdonald Shake. At least that's what it taste like to me. The  next day I loss only .4, but I think it was due to me skipping lunch. Saturday I drank the shake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with veggies for lunch and dinner and Sunday I lost 1.2 lbs!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!! I am back in business! Oh, by the way I lowered my injection dosage as well and that decreased the nausea feeling also.

I am glad to hear that you liked the shakes and lost weightClap I have not started yet I am waiting for my delivery from adc, I will order the shakes tonight. I LOVE strawberry shakes, had one from mcdonalds todayCry I have been reading blogs and forums for the past hour because I want to know if I can use the shakes daily. I am very concerned about protein intake because I do not want any hair shedding, (shed enough with megatek).

hey ladies! just wanted to update... i've been in phase 3 for 2 weeks now (since thanksgiving) i have found this phase soooooooooooo much more difficult than phase two. im surprised to hear my self say that, but omg everything i want to eat has carbs in it and avoiding sugar is way more difficult than i expected. I have gained just under 2 lbs back... and am now stable at that weight. i had some difficulty in the begining, and needed to do a few "steak days" but i think that was related to issues with my bowels, because i was diagnosed with IBS in the past. overall, my experience has been satisifying and i fully intend to do another round in january. this time i will time it to begin right after aunt flo leaves- i def regret not doing that the first time, as it slowed down my loss immensely.

My hcg from adc arrived in customs on the 12th. I am so excited, I can't wait to get started.
Does anyone have any information about protein shakes, is the weight loss consistent if I drink a shake daily? I am concerned about getting enough  protein. I was thinking about getting the atkins shakes no sugar

Connie1458,
It's a small thing but it might help..as I understand it, you should mix your proteins..if you have chicken for lunch, you should have a diff protein (for ex. fish) for dinner. HTH

Strawberry Smoothie
 
Mix strawberries, ice water, stevia (optional) & lemon juice (optional). This equals one fruit serving.

Hello, I only started 4 days ago, and I am on day 2 of my LCD but I am dieing of temptation and hunger, I am a big eater but I never expect it to be THIS hard. I know everyone has been updating with weight loss but can anyone share ther journey as their getting there, maybe it can serve as motivation for me and others who may be a lot like me.


Posted By: NoHo_MA
Date Posted: Dec 20 2009 at 5:11pm
^^^I'm on day 5. The first two days of my LCD were ok. I guess I didn't feel hungry b/c of all the running around I was doing (I drank a ton of water). Today has been rough--probably b/c of all the work I put into shoveling over a foot of snowLOL.  Drinking tea/water and distracting myself (walking my 2 dogs, phn calls,..) has also helped when I felt tempted. Just remember, if you give in to temptation the effects won't be immediate but they will show up in the form of weight gain...IT"S NOT WORTH IT! Just walk away/stay away from the kitchenLOL.  I saythis b/c, I did lose the first day but not as much as I had hoped--I'm thinking the stevia (Stevia in the Raw)I used in my tea and in a recipe affected the loss--the first ingredient is dextrose. So, no sweetener of any kind yesterday and when I weighed in I had lost 1.1 lbsSmile. Hang in there! It has to get better.

confession time!

ok ladys lets confess who fell off the ban wagon
lets tell why and when.......

i will go first.....
i started hcg around the end of Oct. or begriming of November. from then up untill thanksgiving i lost like almost 20 pounds but when that d@%$ turkey came out the FRYER (yes fried turkey) on thanksgiving i started to eat and did not stop it is now pass Christmas and the food games started again. But my new years resolution will be to loose weight for 2010
i will start the hcg and the gym membership on January 2
ok i feel so much better...
any other confessions? speak now.


1) when you will start or when you did start program
january 2 2010

2)which method you chose (drops or injection)
drops

3)starting weight and goal weight (a picture would be great of starting weight and progress
start:271
end: 150 (fingers crossed)

4)how many pounds you are dropping a day
1 pound a day around (the first time i did the diet)

5)any receipes that you enjoy and would like to share
salad with lemon

6)any tips or tricks that have helped you stay on the diet
non
but this time i will do the diet like i need to
no more variations like splenda it slowed down my weight loose.
word from the wise...
        (1) don't eat what every you want until you hit 500 kcal. it just don't work the same
        (2)no variations even splenda it just slows down the process
        (3)drink the heck out of some water ... helps big time

7) and lastly how often you plan on updating us on your progress
when i start i will try to be on her almost daily but update bi-monthly

low fat sweet treat
Smoothie (to make you forget ice cream - serves one) by rhoC

few frozen strawberries
1/4 cup frozen mango or any pref. fruit
1 banana
Crystal Light single serving pack (of your choice flavor)
1 1/2 cup water

Place ingredients in tall large cup and use hand blender to mix to desired consistency. (or blend in a blender).

Enjoy 150-200 calorie large frosty smoothie. Depending how you make this it will have 2-4 servings of fruit and no fat!! Personally formerly being addicted to Häagen-Dazs Strawberry Ice Cream at 1200 cals for 2 cups this is a low calorie healthy guilt-free alternative....

Thanks for the response. Yes I can deff. say the first 6 days was the toughest. I was sooooo Hungry. I nearly went crazy. Then I did not even realize that when I started I was only 4 days away from the time of the month. During the 5 days of my mense I lost NO weight. I was so aggravated. Did this happen to anyone else? Being that I lost 10 lbs in 15 days with 5 of those days being my period days I guess the protocal is working right?

Hi ladies--I started taking the HCG drops 3 days ago. The instructions that came with it said to do 3 load days (not sure why because I thought it was 2 days). Anyway I have a question, the diet calls for no oils on your body--is baby lotion ok?
My Stats for the 3 load days:
12/30= 194.4 lbs
12/31= 198.2 lbs
1/1= 200.2 lbs (wow! I couldnt believe the scale this morning, I've never weighed this much in my whole life!)

hey joy 22- to answer your questions about oils its no oils with nutritional value (ie avocado, castor, etc.) you can use mineral oil, which is the base for baby oil products. vaseline is also okay.
 
 
i started again guys! 12/31 and 1/1 were my load days- last time i only gained 2-3 lbs during them but this time i gained 7 this time around Shocked
 
I am going to try to get myself together to put up weekly pictures... but just so u have a little info about me, i'm 5'9 and 198. This is my second round of hcg- the first one i began at 210 about- i dropped to 194 but I did a short cycle then- only 16 days. I did struggle more than most to keep it off because of that... so, back at 198... i am starting again.
 
I chose hcg because i am very fit and attend the gym at least 3-5 times a week, doing intense cardio for more than 45 minutes each visit, yet i was unable to lose fat. i actually found myself building muscle and thereby gaining weight... hcg is designed to burn only body fat which is ideal for me and convinced me.
 
I have 4 coworkers who have done this diet, two of whom have lost over 100 lbs doing it, and one who is my age and similar size, lost 35 over the course of 2 rounds.
 
Anywhoooooo i'm babbling--- here's my info so far :)
 
12/30- 198
12/31- 202
1/1- 204.6
1/2- 203.2
1/3- 202
1/4- 201
 
i understand the purpose of the load days as being to prevent hunger headaches and weakness the first two days of VLCD- i learned how important that is because since i REALLY loaded this time, i felt fine on 1/2 and 1/3 while last time i had had horrible headaches!
 
 
i will be continuing through 1/23 at least. my goal is to be at 175... which is 30 lbs from load weight or 23 from original weight. hopefully i'll get there. :) i will post every few days.
 
oh and fyi- i found a great recipe for hcg ceviche here: http://hcgdietinfo.com/HCG-Diet-Recipes.htm" rel="no follow - http://hcgdietinfo.com/HCG-Diet-Recipes.htm
 
a few questions:
since we aren't supposed to use oils- what are you guys doing for your hair? i'm natural, and no oil isnt an option- but i wonder if this is hindering progress?
 
any workout regimines along with this diet? the women at my job dont workout, and ive seen some sites say not too... i cut back to just walking, btu im curious what others are doing....
 
good luck ladies!

my first round i had the time of the month problem too... i lost about 1 lb over that 5 days... and an average of 1/day the other time i was completing. the original protocol acutally says to skip injections but continue the diet during that time period... but i probably woulda killed someone for a snickers if i had done that LOL

I am retyping, for some reason I can't quote
 
12/24 - 12/25 Load Days
12/26 - 230 OMG
12/27 - 227.8 (I kept getting on the scale I couldn't believe it)
12/28 - 227.0
12/29 - 224.6
12/30 - 222.4
12/31 - 220.4
1/1       219.4
1/2       218.0
1/3 Did not weigh, worked a double
1/4       218.4 I had a OH HELL NO MOMENT
The evening of the 2nd, I bought sugerfree chocolate mousse pudding (6 containers) I rationalized that becaue it was sugar free I could eat it. (they were sooo good). I ate all 6, three that evening and 3 the next day. I gained .4 lb. After jumping on the scale 2 or 3 times to confirm. Took a deep breath, swallowed a diet pill, grabbed some apples and sat down to have a long talk with myself.
I did not have any hunger issues until I ate the 1st chocolate mousse. I craved them until they were gone. The sweet velvety chocolate smoothness was damn near orgasmic. These are the kind of thoughts that got me 230 lbs.
I am back on the wagon, looking forward to the weigh-in in the morningBig%20smile

Thank you for the response Kheti. I will be using baby oil because i think it has mineral oil. How do you manage to exercise on such a low calorie diet.? I barely have the energy to breathLOL
This is day 2 on the VLCD, and I'm starving. Yesterday, i went to bed early so I wouldnt have to deal with the hunger. And today at work, I'm mean as hell because I'm hungry. I've been drinking my water, drinking green tea, and yerba mate, but nothing seems to help. I dont know how I'm going to survive the next couple of days. ..i heard it gets better each day, so i'll try to hang in there...here is what my diet consists of:
 
B/fast: green tea, apple, water, yerba mate
Lunch: apple, broccoli, tilapia, water
Dinner: chicken breast, spinach, tea
 
Any tips on how to cope with hunger?--I'm taking the sublingual hcg.

1/5- 199 (WHEW- passin that 200 mark feels soooo good)
1/6-198.2
1/7-197.8

a little disappointed cuz my loss is slowing down....

but i also cheated... :-/ so my fault...

going well... other than the one cheat which was a small cookie

joy- you shouldnt be hungry... did you load?

i would continue with the tea. also- you are allowed two grissini (hard breadsticks) or melba toast a day. the carbs may help you get past the hunger

i'm not hungry at all... i just have a mental problem. i see everyone with their food and it looks soooooo good. working on my willpower so i can lose 1-1.5 lbs daily and meet my goal.

spencer- no you dont need a scrip for adc

15 more days till my cycle is complete!
