hcg info

Posted by coffeesnob (My Page) on

Hi all, I am using the hcg injections for weight loss and have a question. I am on day 15 of the injections and would like to take a break for 5 days as something came up. I am wondering if I need to do anything special before stopping and then after the 5 days do I just start it up again? I appreciate any advice I can get.

RE: hcg info

I began the HCG shots on Sept 1st and as of today I have lost 11 pounds, not bad for someone who has tried everything within the past 3 years only to watch the scale continue to climb. As much as I am thrilled with this diet, I don't find it as easy as some profess. For instance, I seem to battle hunger pains daily, and though some days are better than others I am hungry a lot. I also have days where I crave starchy foods, breads mostly. A few days ago I was on the third day of a plateau with horrible hunger. I decided to take Trudeau's revised advise and get a 30 minute accupresure massage (fully clothed). Amazingly my hunger was gone for 2 days and the next day there was a 3 pound drop in weight. though I'd love to be able to get a daily massage, weekly is much more realistic.
Can any one tell me if such hunger is normal during the protocal, if so what can be done about it?

RE: hcg info

I have decided to start the HCG diet although it will be a chore to inject myself (I hate needles)! Does it hurt or do you get used to it? Do you inject yourself each day? Does anyone recommend a doctor in Arizona? Thank you kindly

RE: hcg info

The hunger is probably sugar cravings - stay away from high Glycemic Index foods (apples, oranges, melba toast, bread sticks) a few days and see if that helps! Be sure you're still getting your carbs (20+ per day) from other sources though.
