Help!!! this is my 8th day diet and i have not lost any pounds yet, is it because I didn't take my B12 vit? I've been going obeying the my 500 calorie.
I've notice that postings in this blog ended last year. I am wondering if there are people doing this diet still besides me. I started the HCG drops under my tongue on May 11 along with the loading day, now is May 15 and had dropped a little bit over 10 lbs. I am followint the diet but I am still concern in the amount of vegetable that I should eat.... (e.g. Lettece, spinach, celery, ) What's the amount that I should be eating I have been been looking on line but no one seems to mention anything about the amount of vegetables that should be eattin. If somebody has that info, please, please let me know thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The reason this diet works is because it severly restricts your calories! There is no magic to the "hcg drops". In fact, if they are homeopathic, there is literally nothing in them.
Homeopathic products are made from minerals, botanical substances, and several other sources. If the original substance is soluble, one part is diluted with either nine or ninety-nine parts of distilled water and/or alcohol and shaken vigorously (succussed); if insoluble, it is finely ground and pulverized in similar proportions with powdered lactose (milk sugar). One part of the diluted medicine is then further diluted, and the process is repeated until the desired concentration is reached. Dilutions of 1 to 10 are designated by the Roman numeral X (1X = 1/10, 3X = 1/1,000, 6X = 1/1,000,000). Similarly, dilutions of 1 to 100 are designated by the Roman numeral C (1C = 1/100, 3C = 1/1,000,000, and so on). Most remedies today range from 6X to 30X, but products of 30C or more are marketed.
A 30X dilution means that the original substance has been diluted 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times. Assuming that a cubic centimeter of water contains 15 drops, this number is greater than the number of drops of water that would fill a container more than 50 times the size of the Earth. Imagine placing a drop of red dye into such a container so that it disperses evenly. Homeopathy's "law of infinitesimals" is the equivalent of saying that any drop of water subsequently removed from that container will possess an essence of redness. Robert L. Park, Ph.D., a prominent physicist who is executive director of The American Physical Society, has noted that since the least amount of a substance in a solution is one molecule, a 30C solution would have to have at least one molecule of the original substance dissolved in a minimum of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 molecules of water. This would require a container more than 30,000,000,000 times the size of the Earth.
Please feel free to ask anyone practicing homeopathy about these rules. Please feel free to look this information up on your own as well!
