I'm sorry to report a downside of HCG. The Low calorie part sucked my energy and made me cranky as heck. It did. I felt no clarity of mind, extra energy or added sense of well being. It stunk. The entire 41 days were a test on me big time. But it was worth it. My muscle strength is back now and I realize how weak I was during Phase 2. I can run up the stairs to grab the phone and everything works right! I'm excited to start exercising. So, the jury is still out as to how much I buy in to the efficacy of homeopathic HCG. I think there is something to it. I think Dr. Simeon was genuine. I don't think it is a hoax. But I don't think it does all it claims to do either. Not for me it didn't.
Anyhoo, LOVIN' phase 3 so far. This is the third day and I am so satisfied with my food and I eat so much less than I used to. I just think simple white flours and sugars throw your body out of whack. Why would I pig out on them and two or three hours later be hungry and craving? Now, I eat a very reasonable amount of food and I am mentally and physically content for hours and hours. It is amazing to me. I've never felt this in control. It is so liberating and gives me such hope that I can do this.
Granted, it's only day three, I'm sure the scale will do some roller coasting, but as for now, I am at 173.4. That's LOWER than my Last Dose of HCG weight. So, I'm okay for now.
Plus, oh my goodness I'm poopin' like a goose. Holy Mylanta. That part is proving inconvenient thus far. I hope that goes away as I can't leave the house for more than 45 minutes!
Food, glorious food. I've missed you. Eggs, cream cheese, mayo, avocados, oil, butter, oh my. Clarification: I'm not eating spoonfulls of butter, but it sure tastes good on squash!
