HCG VLCD Day 7 & 8

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Days 7 & 8 are going just okay… I’m going to blog a bit less because there really isn’t much going on and I have more work this week. Yesterday, I was starved. I ate a portion of Tyson’s grilled chicken (100 cal) and then strawberries in the morning. That helped steady me until lunch. Lunch was just steamed chicken and veggies with some seasoning. It really could have used some hot sauce, so I will be bringing one into work from home. After I got home, again I was hungry! WTH?! I downed another serving of chicken (100 cal) and hoped that didn’t bomb out my progress.

Today has been a lot better, especially if I stay off of Pinterest because there are a lot of food pictures that I wish I could eat, but can’t. This triggers lots of hunger and cravings. So, I’m staying off of it for as much as possible. I’ve been dehydrated more and more at night, so I need to increase my water. Ugh, that should be a bad word: w-a-t-e-r.
My friend and I were chatting about that evil word, which makes me pee all the time and all night long. I did notice more weight loss with my increased water intake. We also noted that body builders increase their water to a gallon per day or more! I would be drowning if that were the case.

I’m gonna try a VLCD spaghetti using those low-cal Shirataki noodle, low fat portioned out ground beef, and a can of no salt diced tomatoes. I’ll probably take half the can and emulsify it, then take the other part and leave the pieces whole. I’ll add in 1 tablespoon of onion, 20 grams diced red pepper, and lots of garlic and Italian seasoning. I’ll report back on tastes. 245 cal for the dinner, so no melba toast for me.

Max weight at program start: 222lbs
Current: 207.4lbs
Goal: 150lbs
Difference: 57.4lbs

    hi there -
    I think it is better to cheat with approved items then starve and cave into all of the past cravings. I did and still do beef broth even hot for breakfast - kinda weird, but it worked to keep me going - cannot stomach chicken broth for some reason the spell gags me out! There are several on the sight who can go hard core and stick 100% to the program but I have blips.

    If you have not tried the radish heaven - it is amazing - and i hate radishes! I did not use coconut oil the first round and did well, but notice since adding it as many in the suport group do, I feel a lot better. I do chicken sauteed in hot sauce (or picante - shhhh I am mixing veggies) on lettuce leaves. I am doing a bit of extra protein too - I do one or two servings of eggbeaters occasionally in the morning. I may not lose the full amount this way, but I will be happy with another 15!

    Good luck!
