Hi fatima! You can check your scale by weighing yourself five times in a row. If the result differs by more than .4, then your scale is not consistent and you might want to look for another one.
You wouldn’t need to count it towards your loses since you will just gain back the weight you’ve lost from the vomiting once you’re vomiting stops and you are able to hydrate yourself again.
You could definitely do a switch to injections if that is your case. There are some dieters who lost better when doing the shots. When switching from drops to injections, there are no special instructions. You simply switch the next morning. Skipping a day is not necessary. Hope your loses improve. Best of luck! =)
If you were not able reach your ideal weight on your first round, a multiple round of the HCG diet will be necessary. But you cannot simply proceed to the next round without doing the recommended break period. This is essential to give your body time to adjust to the loses and to also prevent immunity from the HCG hormone. The least you would want to happen is for the HCG diet to be ineffective to you in the succeeding rounds. The break between first and second round is at least six weeks; between second and third round is eight weeks; between third and fourth round is twelve weeks, and so on. The breaks between rounds becomes progressively longer.
When doing diets, we reduce our calories so less energy from food will be available. After which, your body will burn up some of its stored fats to use as energy. Unfortunately, those abnormal fats in our belly are the most stubborn stored fat. They wouldn’t budge even if you have been starving yourself. So this is when the HCG hormone comes to the rescue. The HCG hormone will be influencing a part of your brain to release those stored abnormal fats to serve as your main energy source. That is simply what it does – it convinces your brain to let it go. So those belly fats can now easily be melted off. =)
Hi Lauren! =)
Your best course of action would be to start weaning yourself off from carbs weeks before you plan to start your HCG round. You will need to lessen your carbohydrate intake gradually prior to doing the diet. First off, start by removing starchy carbs (especially those highly-processes starchy foods) from your menu for at least a week. Oh, and you also nee to cut out those sugary carbs, too! So, say good bye to the candies, chocolates, and sugary-beverages.
At the same time as you decrease your carbs, increase your fat intake. This will be able to help you not miss your processed carbs too much. Once you get the hang of these, you could now proceed with your HCG round and load with high-fat foods instead of carbs.
If you love lavender, instead of using essential oils, use lavender leaves in your bath. You could also try to make use of mint leaves. It is very relaxing! =)
According to Dr. Simeons’ original protocol, you may take aspirin. This is the sole OTC medication that he had permitted to be used for persistent headache while on the protocol.
No need to worry, amie. All powdered HCG are actually designed for injection. Even those you got from the local clinic are also used for injections. But it is up to us to decide mix and use them. The powder for the injection is still the same as the powder for sublingual. But, taking 2 ml under your tongue seems like a lot of fluid. Also, dosing at 250IU is a very high dose. This would most likely cause you to experience hunger.
This is what you could do. Mix 20cc of fluid with the 10,000 IU HCG. You would then take 3 ml (30 units on the 100-unit syringe or 12 units on the 40-unit syringe) for a dose of 150 IU to be taken twice a day. But if you really prefer to stick with your 250 IU dose, that would be 50 units on a 100-unit syringe and 20 units on a 40-unit syringe.
HCG will definitely be able to help you to get rid of those well-preserved belly fats.. =D
Belly fats are really the most stubborn of fats in your entire body. While your body is already working on breaking down your normal fats and structural fats, your body will still be holding on dearly to those stored abnormal fats. When you introduce HCG into your system, the abnormal fats on your belly will be released and your body will now be able to melt them off. So if you do decide to do this diet, you can be assured knowing that you’ll be able to get rid of those bulges.
Nice plan. I was able to read an article that provides a detox plan. It tells you what you need to do for the detoxification process and also the ingredients and recipes for the detox. You could check the article: https://www.hcg-injections.com/hcg-diet-detox-tips/
When doing dose adjustments, you should first skip your dose for the day. Then observe the level of your hunger by early evening. You will be able to know whether you need to increase or decrease your dose based on your hunger level. If your hunger has decreased by early evening after skipping your dose, this means that your current dose is too high. However, if your hunger has increased, this signifies that your dose is too low. After determining if your dose is too high or too low, increase or decrease your dose by an increment of 25IU and start on the new dose on the next day.
Hi amie, It is highly discouraged to suddenly end your round without going through all the phases. It would just mess up your loses and metabolism. Cutting your round short is only allowed if you have already had 20 injections (not counting your injections during loading). If you already had at least this much, you can already end P2, then do P3, then P4.
But since your travel is going to be in a few days, you wouldn’t have enough time to go through phases 3 and 4 before then. What you could do is to follow the instructions for treatment interruption as discussed in the in the post above.
I feel you. I’ve always loved my tea sweet. =)
So I was glad when I’ve learned that natural sweetener such as stevia or saccharin, can be used to sweeten food and beverages while on the HCG diet – provided that it is used in small amount only.
You wouldn’t have to worry about that. The HCG hormone is amazing that even when your intake is only 500 calories, you won’t be at risk of having a shortage in nutrients. This is because HCG releases your stored fats which actually has nutrients. That said, our fatty tissues not only contains fat, bat also vitamins, minerals, blood, and proteins. When losing weight through this diet, only the fat is being melted off while the other components of the fatty tissues are being circulated back into your system for your body to utilize. I hope this eases your concern. =)
