Haven't blogged because I just didn't have the right words to describe my recent weight loss. I think I can express it now today, now that I have a handle on it.
A month ago, August 14th to be exact, I decided to try the HCG drops through a medical doctor (internist). I selected the "fast track" which is one month (4 weeks).
This HCG protocol is not like the Dr. Simeon's version which is 500 calories per day. This protocol ranges from 700-1100 calories, depending on the meat. Plus vitamins and protein supplements. I also received a B-12 shot each week and that B-12 has changed my life. My brain fog lifted like magic!
I had to give up all sugars and starches. Hard for me because I love them. But HCG nixed my cravings immediately. When I felt hungry, it was true hunger.
I did not lose 30 lbs in 30 days. I lost much slower. A total of 8 pounds. I am very happy with these results because, that is in the healthy range.
I plan to go a second round of HCG but after doing research, I found one online. This also comes with B-12 but in drops. My goal is to lose another 8 pounds in a month's time.
After that, I will go into the maintenance phase in order for my systems to reset and maintain my weightloss. It is my hope that cravings do not return (for sweets and breads). I feel so much better without them.
