HCG, Working great.
« on: Fri Oct 15, 2010 - 15:38:10 »
I swore I would never diet again.  Every time is did I lost too much muscle and the weight came back with a vengeance.

So, I changed my life to eat the way God made food (avoiding all man-made and processed stuff), lost a lot of weight over 10 years, but VERY slowly.  I really needed to drop another 50 to be college weight, and I didn't want to wait another 10 years to get to that goal.

My friend and his wife lost a lot of weight on HCG, told me about it.  I disregarded it as another failure waiting to happen.  Then, for some odd reason, I started studying HCG.  Much of what is on the internet is inaccurate hype.  But there is good information out there. 

I studied up, read the little book written by the Dr. that came up with the program.  He does not make any money from all this hype, that says something.  This program started development about 50 years ago, so it is nothing new.

I read enough to decide to try it out.  The proof in in the pudding....  Lost 30+ so far very rapidly, and I'm happy to say I'm NOT losing muscle!  In fact I've gained a bit of muscle as I've exercised a bit more than the Dr. says I should.

I'm so close to my ultimate dream weight goal I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

BTW:  Before anyone starts on a rant about how losing weight slowly is supposed to be "better," come up with some proof.  Come up with a study.  Don't just repeat what we've already been told all our lives.  Dumping the obesity is a great thing, there is nothing healthy about hanging onto it for a few extra years.

Also BTW:  Homeopathic HCG is an absolute scam.  Don't waste time or money on it.  If you're interested, go to a real Dr. and get the real stuff.

And the most important thing is;  They teach you how to keep the weight off!

Here is an update:

I've lost 50 pounds under the doctor prescribed HCG program.  I'm down to my college weight of 30 years ago.

Needles to say, I'm quite pleased.

They tell people that many experience very little, or even no hunger.  I was not so lucky.  I had significant hunger days, but also a lot of days with minimal or no hunger.  It wasn't always easy.

In about a week I will stop this phase of the program and go on to the next phase.  The next phase is three weeks of eating about anything I want with no limit on calories, but absolutely no sugars or starches.  This includes no breads or excessive fruits.  The purpose of these three weeks is to get the body eating normal amounts of food while maintaining the same weight by not spiking insulin.

It is impossible to gain unhealthy fat if insulin is not spiked beyond what your body considers normal.  (So says the Dr.)  Sugars and starches spike insulin.  Meats, fats, and vegetables do not.  Real fresh ground grain breads may not, depending on the person.

During these three weeks, the new weight set point is being set.  After that, all foods in moderation are allowed, but a careful watch of the scales remains so foods that force fat gain are detected so they can be better controlled.  There are no calorie restrictions, but a person is to learn what works and what does not work for their body.

I went from a size 40 pant to a size 32 on this program and still have the muscle I started out with.  2 1/2 months to lose 50 pounds.  An average of almost 3/4 pounds per day lost.  The healthiest weight loss I've ever experienced.

Amazing.

just look up hcg on the internet, there are thousands of sites.  Beware, if it isn't from a Dr. or from an overseas pharmacy, it is a fake. 

find and read "Pounds and Inches" online if you really want to know.

I too am turning to HCG...I start Phase 1 on March 1. I did an extended phase last year about this same time and lost 30 pounds. I did not gain back any weight that I'd lost and now intend to lose the last 30 pounds. It does work and I really enjoyed the food choices. Lots of whole, fresh fruit and vegetables - I love spinach and asparagus as a result of this protocol, and bring mostly chicken and ground turkey into my house now. Rarely any beef or fatty fish.  I'm proud of your weight loss and commitment to a healthier life!
