A Message From An HCG Diet User

  • I think most people that do or have done the HCG Diet, need to come up with different ways to make the diet their own. It's important to find out what works best for you, then use it.

    As I have mentioned before, I love to hear from all of my readers out there about how the diet has worked for you. I am always glad to see when you leave new comments for me to read. Even if you don't know it, your comments can be very helpful to other readers of the HCG Diet 411 Blog.

    I recently received an email from one of my readers who has been doing very well with the HCG Diet. She had sent me an email after reading one of my posts "HCG Diet Nae-Sayers". I thought her message could possibly help others out there, so I wanted to share it here in this post.

    "Hi Brian:

    I hear you, man!  I recently did one round (Oct to mid-Nov, 2009), dropping 25.3 lbs. & 36” overall (7” off my waist alone)... now, three months later and eating a 1400 calorie diet with moderate exercise (at least 10,000 steps a day), I’m down a total of 35.8 lbs. & 47” overall (9” at the waist).  I think the naysayers miss the whole point of the HCG protocol...it’s hard, but it’s for a finite amount of time and it’s about resetting your relationship with food/booze, etc.

    I had friends laying bets I’d never last... but with the results I saw each day...and continue to see, I can not complain.  And, truth be told, I have changed... my alcohol consumption is considerably less (still like to toast a glass of bubbly (sometimes 1/2 bottle) with my honey)... but red and white wine are out.  I’m not saying forever, but, quite frankly, neither tastes that good to me anymore.  Champagne is still yummy, but again, a little bit goes a long way!  Also, I’ve completely cut out the “whites” (potatoes, pasta, rice, bread, etc.) and with the exception of 1 or 2 peanut M&Ms as an occasional treat (and, yes, I’m content with just one or two), no sugars, either.  Certainly no cakes, cookies, candy, etc.

    I track every calorie I eat (peanut M&M: 10.3 calories); exceed one gallon of water consumed each day; and weigh-in every morning.

    Have successfully worked in a nice variety of what I consider my “new” idea of a treat:  all natural peanut butter (1 tbl. W/granny smith apple (96 & 95 cals, respectively), tiny box of raisins (45 cals), 5 dried apricot halves (110 cals), 10 pistachios (40 cals), 5 macadamia nuts pcs. (35 cals) , etc... so I don’t feel deprived.

    Anyway, are you doing/have you done HCG?  If so, how were your results?

    I heard from Colleen today, and she says that to date she has lost 41.7 lbs. Great Job Colleen!

    This just goes to show you how well the diet can work and it's worth mentioning that she continues to lose weight 4 months after stopping the HCG Hormone Injections.
