    You can’t do heavy exercises when doing the HCG program. It may even be counter productive in your weight loss. You can do light exercises such as walking, swimming, or a short jog, but that’s it.

    As much as it would be better to have a the same skip day every week, you are still allowed to change your skip day as long as there is at least 4 days in between your skip days.

    Actually, the 23 or 46 days program refers to the total number of days you are on the 500-calorie diet. Dr. Simeons’ said that a course should have a minimum of 23 injections or a maximum of 40 injections.
    Therefore, a 23 days program (short round) is:
    (23 injections) – (2 days of loading with injections) = 21 days of 500 calorie diet with injections
    then since we need to do 2 days of 500 calorie diet without HCG at the end of the last injection, then 21 + 2 = 23 days of 500 calorie diet total.

    Yes, the manuscript, Pounds and Inches, discusses the original HCG Diet as designed by Dr. Simeons.

    You can skip tomorrow and change your skip day to every Friday. Or if you don’t want to change it to Friday, you may adjust your skip day next week depending on your choice of day as long as you have at least 4 days in between your skip days.

    The weight you lose during the HCG diet varies from person to person. However, there are certain numbers that you could use as a benchmark for your weight loss during the HCG diet. 1 Full round (46 days) are sometimes enough for some and others need one more short round (23 days) to reach their target weight loss. There are a lot of factors that could affect your weight loss, which includes your metabolism, your body’s responsiveness to HCG, food sensitivities, etc.. For most, they are able to lose between 0.5-1 lbs per day.

    i don’t think that this is the right place to discuss about conspiracies about the virus. We respect your beliefs but the truth remains that there are people infected, people are dying and some of us here has relatives who were affected by it as well.

    Although, you can simply get some of these products online. It would be best to seek assistance with your doctor just in case you have some underlying conditions that may trigger just in case you do the diet

    Well, it’s not the HCG itself that causes your weight loss. It is the diet program that causes you to lose weight. However, when you eat less, you not only lose fats, you also lose the muscles. Plus the coping with hunger is the greatest struggle of all. HCG hormones helps target you to lose the abnormal fats in your body. It also aids in handling your weight loss. Plus the eating discipline that you will acquire as a habit during the HCG program.

    Right. Too many immune cells would cause your immune system to be unbalanced. Instead of helping your body heal, it causes too much inflammation, causing damage. So the best way to prevent severe Covid infection is to lose those excess fats. Of course, wearing a mask, proper hand washing, and social distancing is still very essential – whatever your weight is.

    Yes, that could pose as a bit of a problem when managing obese patients. Another thing, in general, it has been found out that obese patients most commonly requires a breathing tube and a mechanical ventilator when suffering from severe covid infection.

    This could be because it will be hard for them to fill their lungs with air since there is a greater amount of fat in the chest and abdomen that could put pressure on their lungs. This would then contribute to them becoming more respiratory distressed.

    I’m sorry you had to experience losing a friend to the pandemic. The virus is indeed scary. Being a nurse, I can say that seeing your patient pass away without any family beside him because they can’t go near him is really heartbreaking. That is why I am really campaigning to educate people on how to lessen the chance of the virus to take a hold of you or to at least give your body a fighting chance in the event that you do get it. There are a lot of risk factors and underlying medical conditions that could impede your defense against Covid. And among these, one of the risk factor that could be modified is obesity since this is a lifestyle disease. A change in lifestyle could really tip the balance in your favor.

    It is normal to experience a stall when you get to your second week. You could try to cut out the melba toast and one fruit in your daily diet and see if you are able to get off the stall. Some dieters experience less stall when they skip the toast. Best of luck!
