Hi Victoria! How is your HCG journey? Did you do an additional loading day? Based on the Pounds and Inches manuscript, it is totally normal not to gain, or even lose some weight during loading days. As long as you did your loading days right, even when you did not gain any weight on P1, you would still have loses during your P2 so don’t worry. =)
Hi Bernadeth! =)
A glass of wine in moderation is allowed on P3.
The Pounds and Inches Manuscript states that “If no carbohydrates whatsoever are eaten, fats can be indulged in somewhat more liberally and even small quantities of alcohol, such as a glass of wine with meals, does no harm, but as soon as fats and starch are combined things are very liable to get out of hand.”
So, yes, you may drink your wine, though I would personally suggest you go with Dry wines since these wines are fully fermented and thus have very little or no residual sugars.
Congrats on reaching P3! =)
Monounsaturated fats and Polyunsaturated fats are identified as “Healthy Fats”. These are fats that are considered good for your heart, and for your overall health. Fats from unprocessed foods are also included. You may load up using sesame, canola, olive, or peanut oils. Nuts and avocados also contain healthy fats. For fish, you could pick fatty fishes such as trout, sardines, salmon, mackerel or tuna. If you like milk, soy milk would be a good choice.. Oh, dark chocolate and cheese definitely would be a yummy treat to indulge.. =)
If you base it on Dr. Simeons manuscript, he does say that you don’t have to eat everything if you are not hungry.. Just don’t starve yourself by depriving yourself of food when your hungry (based on protocol, ofcourse).. It wouldn’t be helpful to go hungry just to push the loses a bit more..
And for me personally, if you do plan to skip a meal, try to at least get the protein in.. =)
Hi Julliana!.. How are your losses? Are you done with your round? or are you doing a long round?
If you’re still on the protocol and having small losses right now, don’t worry too much. Usually, at the beginning of a round, you’re losing a lot of water weight that is why loses are higher during the early part of the round. Women tends to average around 0.5 to 0.75 pounds in the long run. So if you’re averaging this much over the course of the entire round, then you are doing well. It is common to lose little, or even stall during the middle of the round. Just hang on. =)
Nice! Let me know if you find it tasty as well.. =)
Hi jhasmine! =)
Dr. Simeons did mention it in his manuscript that: “During menstruation no injections are given, but the diet is continued and causes no hardship”.
Unless stopping your injections causes you problems, I don’t think you need to take your shots during your TOM.
