Hi guys, so I am a HCG newbie
and I was looking over the forum and saw many posts and helpful hints. I started my process this past Saturday. I had a very bumpy start. For starters I didn't load properly. I felt so guilty eating continually throughout the day and didn't plan properly so I only at like 3,000 each day which needed to be like 4,000 or 5,000 per day from the research I've done. I also had stomach pain due to the fact I was eating fried foods and cheese which never fall good in my stomach! Needless to say I made it through and now on my 3rd day of Phase 2 - 500 calorie.
Here are my stats:
Day 1 - 261.5
Day 2 - 261.5 - as you can see I had no weight gain so definitely didn't eat enough
Day 3 - 264.3
Day 4 - 265.7
Day 5 - 261.5
Day 6 - 259.0
6.7 lbs down from Day 4 - Day 6. Not bad. I look forward to future days & weeks to come.
It has definitely not been easy. Mentally this process is so hard but I am so determined to lose weight. I have been plus size all my life and my motivation is having healthy body so I can have kids. I've been diagnosed with PCOS for 2.5 years now. I was very discouraged today. Just knowing I can't have what I want to eat makes me angry. Food has been such a strong hold in my life but I want to rid my life of that.
On side note. I have been hungry each day and waiting to see if it will go away. I think it's normal hunger but not sure if the pellets are working good enough for me as I've heard that people taking injections feel NO hunger and have to remind themselves to eat lol. I am eating 500 - 575 calories a day. I usually eat an apple or strawberries in the morning because if I don't eat before 10am I am usually shaking. Lunch I've been having the 3.5 chicken, beef, or tilapia with salad, broccoli, or asparagus. I repeat the same for dinner. Next HCG round I definitely will do the injections. I have a work trip in July so I bought the pellets because I was so anxious to start.
Anyway if you are a Pellet taker and have any suggestions or feedback I definitely would love to hear your process or tips!
thanks for listening.
