Important Update for American and Canadian Readers
In the meantime, as I said at the beginning of this reply. The complex blend reduces fat stored and excess water weight to help you reach a lean physique. The way it was explained to me was:. Please share your review of Science Diet dog food! April 25, at With-in days Shadow woke up one morning not his usual happy jumpy kissie self. However, Zipfizz is not a weight loss supplement and does not claim to burn fat or suppress hunger.
It is great that you own and acknowledge the challenges, so encouraging for those that come after you. It is not for the faint hearted but the results are so rewarding. You mentioned headaches, are you drinking enough water? It is also great that you are focusing on health. In the past I only focused on weight loss but things really changed for me once I shifted my thinking to health. Tomorrow will mark 3 weeks and I will be no where near the 7kg average for the 3 week mark..
If I had been close that would have been enough to keep me content. I even had to do a plateau breaking apple day on day 18 because my weight had stalled at the beginning of week 3. And when I say diligent I mean diligent. First thing I think is to not beat yourself up, I think you are doing great. You have to remember that an average is just that so a 7k average is made up from people who have lost less and some who have lost more.
You are only 1. If you look back over my losses I also had a few days of zero and even some gains, that is normal. I had a look in the forum to see if I could find any info for you as Anna, the coach, is brilliant.
A couple of things showed up:. Quite a few people were using natvia or xylitol as sweeteners thinking that they are OK. Some other, unrelated to HCG, possibilities are emotional or stress related issues. The other is Sleep Apnea. I know a fair bit about these as I suffered from both. I am also a pretty high stress person by nature and struggle daily to keep it under control. I am a huge fan of Jon Gabriel and his methods to deal with these and, post HCG, I incorporate a lot of his principles into my daily life.
I wrote a post about him here that may be of help. If you scroll to the bottom I have put a link where you can download the first chapter of his book for free to see if any of it relates to you. In the meantime, as I said at the beginning of this reply. My stress levels were higher than normal last week as I had to perform 3 nights in a row at local venues and be assessed for a uni class. Once this was over my weight loss improved! So this was probably it!
I ended up getting a 6. Definitely important to keep stress in check. Wow what an exciting thing to move to the other side of the world. I would say try to focus on the positives of the situation and always remind yourself that this time right now that is stressful and hard cannot last forever and is a temporary thing. Leaving time for yourself each day where you do not let your mind wander to all the many tasks that need to be done is important.
I hope things run as smoothly as possible for you between now and the big move. Worrying about the 3kgs is probably not worth it at the moment. But 3kgs is not very much at all and when the stress passes you can dispose of it within a week. I believe this will happen for you too once things settle down. Our teenage son is into the gym and has started to work out before school as it makes a big difference to his ability to focus as school.
I have to take him so I am working out in the mornings too which is my sanity time for the day. It also involves a 45 minute drive each morning which gives us some lovely mum and son time. A rarity these days between his social life and our work and travel commitments. It worked really well for me but I put it all back on reasonably quickly. I have been reading this tonight and I am starting soon. I did a low carb diet for 3 weeks and lost SO much weight all my clothes were so baggy yet the scales hardly shifted.
Because of that the scaled did NOT say I lost hope and quit. How silly when my clothes were much looser. In the forum I was in, that I mention in the post above, they stressed how important it is to measure weekly as there are a lot of factors that will contribute to weight fluctuations. Thanks for this wonderful site!
I am on R1P2D4, I have been struggling with my weight for almost years now. I was feeling a lil down as I have been doing the protocol to the letter, and only experienced a. I read in another post about tomotoes and the ethrinotyl i know I just butchered that in Stevia blends, I had both yesterday, and think that this may be the cause of such a low weight loss…oops correction, weight elimination yesterday.
I am super stoked and happy to find these posts. Will keep you updated on my progress. I have a total of 50 lbs. I would like to eliminate, and being on day four to date I have lost 4. Good on you Ana and thanks for the feedback. Remember that everyone is different and you will have some good loss days and not so good ones.
Make sure you mentally prepare yourself for the occasional gain too, it is likely at some point and is normal. The tomatoes and erythritol may have been the cause. Also, are you keeping up your water intake? I understand pounds as a lot of my readers are in America I also need to stay on top of both Aussie and USA measurements as we are moving to Montana in less than three months. Good reminder Lyn re: I have always struggled getting in my water, but I am finding if I put in some lemon, it really does help.
I am down 8. Week 2 seems to be going much better than the first week. Unfortunately, I am starting to get a bit bored, but trying to add some variation to the foods we are allowed. Will keep you posted, and thanks for the heads up on the weight gain. Oh yeah, I also am keeping my measurements, PLEASE measure yourself for anyone starting on or doing the program, it is like another source of encouragement. I take my measurements once a week, here are my results for week one.
A couple of hints for boredom:. I also found that presentation made a big difference to me psychologically. For example if my meal was simply steak and broccoli with a salad.
I would put in an extra few minutes styling my plate. I would make sure I put a few red onion rings, some sliced cucumber and something red like tomato on the plate regardless whether I intended eating them. I would also add a small dollop of mustard on the side.
That way I ended up with a wonderful looking plate with all the colors that stimulate visual satisfaction. Also, have you tried my blueberry shake, I made a video of it here? I am Nikita from India. I have completed my HCG diet of 21 days and only lost 3 kgs in the whole diet. I dont know what is the issue with me, i really want to lose weight especially from my thigh portion.
Can you please tell me what could be the possible reason i didnt lose that much weight and should i continue taking the medicine without taking six weeks off in between? I am not an expert or a doctor, just a woman who has done this protocol and had great success. The things that come to mind immediately are the ones about water, tomatoes and sweeteners such as xylitol or erythritol. You can find them if you read my replies to other questions. Other than that it is difficult to tell without knowing your actual daily diet and also where you got your drops.
Are you doing it through a doctor or nutritionist or did you get your drops from a store or online. Unfortunately there have been reported cases of some companies selling fake drops that are nothing more than water. If that was the case though I would imaging you would still have lost weight but would have been starving hungry.
If you can give me some more information as to what you would eat in an average day including all vegetables and any condiments I may be able to identify what would be a problem.
Regarding the timing, I can only go by the protocol I did with the nutritionist but, according to her, you can continue up to 45 days but you then MUST take the six weeks off before starting another cycle. Hi, I am starting this diet tomorrow but am confused about working out while following it. I workout 6 days a week but am not seeing many results. So with this diet can I keep working out and just eat back those calories or do I stick with the calories only? I would love any information you have.
I too like to work out and hated to stop though I did because I wanted to follow it to the letter. The way it was explained to me was:. This reduces the metabolic process and can actually slow your weight loss. I must admit it did only take about 4 weeks to get it back once I moved out of phase two and could eat larger portions. Just as you were, I was skeptical of the HCG diet.
After reading your page, I think I am going to give it a go. So sorry for the late reply. My family has been in the throes of a major move in the past couple of weeks and I have seriously neglected my blog. If you are still interested in the answer here it is:. I just brought the drops as I already had all the other things. Yes I think it is really important to take them. Cyndi is a highly regarded nutritionist so I followed her recommendations to the letter.
I also highly recommend you join her support forum. That was the most important thing for me. Anna, the moderator, is an amazing wealth of information and the forum is full of active, supportive people ready to help you with any of your questions. When I did it there were around people in it but there are well over now.
Good luck with your journey. It is nearly a year since I did it and I am maintaining my weight nicely while still enjoying yummy food and wine. Will wait for your reply. Sorry for the delayed reply Taniah. I have been travelling and this is the first chance I have had to tend to my blog so this reply will no doubt be too late for your question.
Regardless of whether you continued or not the most important thing for you is to not feel that you have failed. When I was young I was a very heavy smoker very heavy!! I tried and failed to give up 8 times but I kept on trying. One thing to reflect on is to try to identify why you lapsed. There are many reasons people struggle with diet and healthy eating. I wrote a post about him here that might help you http: If you scroll to the bottom of the article there is a link where you can get the first chapter of his book for free.
I only need to lose roughly 15 kilos and going on the 6 week plan. Good on you Sophie, so many others have had great success with this diet. Just remember to make sure you continue to follow healthy not boring strategies once you finish.
Hi Lyn Just a short email to let you know that I have really found your site useful. Love your approach to food being part of life so I look forward to exploring your site more when my food options open up. I have been neglecting it for the past few weeks as my family has been in the middle of a huge move. I will be settled soon and will get back to searching out info and recipes about healthy yummy food. Was diagnosed with PCO by my doctor with all the symptoms including rapid weight gain over a few months.
Not the best of doctors, though — she just told me I had to do this calorie diet because that was the only way for PCO patients to lose weight. Not much other explanation, handed me the pills, and showed me the door.
I finally started after a month or so of sitting around with the pills, because I was so frustrated with the weight gain. I have to say, I was a skeptic but willing to grasp at straws. Your site is giving me the confidence to do this in earnest.
Just forced myself to have dinner. There are a couple of links above in the post. She is a qualified nutritionist and her forum moderator is also a wealth of knowledge. Any question you have at any time will be answered quickly by professionals and you will also get heaps of support from people at exactly the same stage as you are. It is an Australian forum but you can join from anywhere in the world. Note, if you do join I will make a small referral commission but that is not why I am recommending it, it is because it is the best support forum I found full of motivated people all with similar goals and challenges.
Hi Lyn I am considering buying the Changing Habits protocol and found your blog during my research. Can you give an update on how you did on Phase 3 and 4; whether or not your met your goal weight, and how you went about keeping the weight off. I am on day 13 of my first and hopefully only round of HCG. I only have 20lbs to lose I could go as low as for a buffer so I feel like changes should be very noticeable on me.
My waist is mayyyyybe half an inch slimmer probably because my stomach is never full! At what point should I expect to see inches move? October 19, By Lyn More.
