I agree with Maia
First, this thread is for support
, for people doing the diet. It's not to discourage us hcg-ers from doing the diet.
Second, the hcg diet is sometimes the only way a person finally is able to lose weight. Some of us have tried numerous other things, without success, until finally getting rid of big chunks of weight with the help of hcg. Getting rid of a lot of weight is healthier than carrying it around.
Third, yes, you need food but you might not need all kinds of food (and not as much of it either
). I tweaked the hcg protocol a little bit (e.g. different veggies than allowed on the original protocol), and I think I've been eating just fine while on hcg. Sure, you don't have fats in your diet for a while, ot even the healthy ones, but it's only for 40 days, then you can add the fats back in. I'm sure doing without fats for a little more than a month is healthier than staying at that higher weight
Apart from that.....hi Maia
I have been off hcg for quite a while due to family situation, but I really need to get back to it. I'm a stress eater, and as you said, if I don't watch it all the time, weight keeps creeping back
Not even hcg can help with lack of control or will power
I hadn't noticed that there was a revival of this thread a few months ago. Just got an email about today's new postings, so I decided to have a look
