I did it in two rounds. From mid-November to December, then a good 30 day or so break on the maintenance phase and then from January to mid-February, and of course another maintenance phase. I step on the scale every morning before I take a shower to make sure I am still 120 lbs and so far so good. But I still love to eat this way better than my old way of sugar, sugar, sugar.
I know I am a sugaraholic, so the best thing is not to eat any. Plus most of my protein on the diet was non-fat cottage cheese. I feel better than I have in years and vegetables look so appetizing to me now than they ever have. I watched your video with the 2 doctors, one for hCG and one against hCG.
Hey, I’ve tried low-calorie diets before, and I know you are darn hungry when you are on them and your stomach hurts all the time.
But not on the hCG – I was never hungry and it took 3 days off the hCG before my tummy ever growled. I know it is the hCG – like that 2nd doctor ever tried the diet!!!!!!
Plus I have a problem in the past of gaining the weight mostly on my hips and thighs & legs, but that is where I lost the most inches (in my problem spots). I read the Kevin Trudeau book about the diet last Summer and thought it would be just wonderful, but as I am on medication, I thought I could never do the diet, but a girl at work told me her husband lost 35 lbs on the diet, and I asked her about medications, and she said “oh the drops are different.”
Maybe I would have lost even more if I was able to not be on meds. I did keep a record of my weight every day and what I ate also as well. The only problem I had was at Thanksgiving when I make pies – I usually taste them, but I had to restrain myself and it was very hard that day, but then at Christmas time, I had no trouble at all not eating, or tasting anything. My kids don’t want me to lose any more weight as my face looks thin, and I have more wrinkles.
I was about 15 lbs less when I got married and that dress was baggy on me, so you can imagine how thin I was. One of my kids said that I lost the fat that holds up the wrinkles! Ah, better to be wrinkly than fat!!!!. But I’m almost 55 – what do you expect at this age!
