    I’m not complaining, really. But is it normal to lose weight while loading? Shouldn’t I be gaining instead?
    I’ve been loading lots of fatty foods, cheeses, and all the foods that I love. But after loading the past 2 days, I weighed myself this morning and discovered that I lost 2 pounds. I hope I didn’t mess up my round by not gaining during the loading phase.


    Hi Michelle! =)

    Losing weight in P1 is totally fine. Pounds and Inches mentions it:

    “During the two days of forced feeding from the first to the third injection – many patients are surprised that contrary to their previous experience they do not gain weight and some even lose. The explanation is that in these cases there is a compensatory flow of urine, which drains excessive water from the body. To some extent this seems to be a direct action of HCG, but it may also be due to a higher protein intake, as we know that a protein-deficient diet makes the body retain water.”

    So you most probably are losing weight while loading because your body is expelling those excess water in your body.
