Only 1 pellet

I have done the hcg diet before, in Arizona, through a medical spa and had great success. Lost 80 pounds in 9 months, but of course life got in the way and I regained some of my weight back. Not wanting to go back to my old self I started looking for some place to get medical grade hcg at a reasonable price. I now live in Oregon and every med spa that had hcg protocol wanted $1500 - $2000 for the 46 day program, to much money for me to spend. So, I found Nu Image, the cost was perfect and somewhat similar to the med spa I went to in Arizona (there were some differences ). I ordered the 46 day program, but much to my surprise when my pellets came there were only enough for 1 pellet a day. The med spa in Arizona had me take 2 a day and that isn't the only difference I have noticed. I am on day 11 of the VLCD, I am always hungry, haven't lost any weight in 5 days and have been experiencing alot of muscle fatigue. I am very frustrated and that usually leads me to cheat and fall completely off the wagon. I need to know why only one pellet a day? It doesn't seem like enough. If someone can please respond I would greatly appreciate it. Also, what are the hours to call the support line. Thanks in advance.

Great Question! HCG remains active in your body for 72 hours, hence once a day administration is all that is required. There is a lot of confusion on the internet with the fake, other the counter drops that were being sold (and still are!) on the internet a few years ago. They made it seem as if you had to take it 2-3 times per day, etc, etc.. All marketing propaganda to make it seem as if you were taking a real product. This is not true with the real hormone since you continue the diet for 3 days at the end WITHOUT any HCG administration for those days. SO, the two main reasons for this to happen is: A. You're exercising / walking too much / or perhaps have a daily routine job that is very active. If your exercising in any way, STOP. If you have an active job, call us, we can compensate for that. B. You're not eating enough. Simply measuring your food is not going to work. You need to count the calories for every food you eat. Typically, people who follow the simple diet version of 2 meals per day eat between 275-325 calories, way less than the Simeons minimum of 500. WE CAN HELP WITH THAT TOO!! Our telephone medical support is from M-F 9am - 7pm EST, however our online support desk is 24 hours. While it may take a a few hours to get a response on the weekends, someone will address your issues. Once you give us call, we will get you on the proper track again.

Thank you for your quick response. I heard all the bad stuff about the online hcg and homeopathic hcg and steered clear away from that stuff, that is why I went with Nu Image because everything I read was positive and was the closest program to what I did in AZ at Red Mountain Med Spa/Weight Loss Center. I have been eating 4 times a day and averaging between 525 to 600 calories a day depending on what I eat for the day, sometimes I up my vegetable intake if I am super hungry but my protein never changes.. I have been using a calorie counter app to help me see how many calories I am consuming. My job isn't very active....I pretty much sit at a computer all day, although it is on the second story and I take the stairs up and down every day because the elevator is on the other side of the building. I also live in a 2 story house, so of course, stairs. I was walking at lunch but didn't yesterday and low and behold I got on the scale this morning and was down 1.6 pounds so I will cut that out for now. I will continue to halt any exertive activities and see where it goes from there. Thanks again.
