Having A Fluctuation In Weight Loss

Having You Experienced A Fluctuation In Weight Loss?

After the 4th or 5th day of the HCG 500 Calorie Diet, the amount of weight that is lost per day begins to decrease. Most people start to lose about one pound or less per day.

You might find that you are urinating a lot less too. Some people don't urinate at all for 2 or even 3 whole days. However, this is nothing to be concerned with, everything should return to normal within a couple of days. This happens because of the retention and elimination of water. Of coarse this usually occurs more in women than it does in men. 

How Does This Happen? 

Basically this all happens when fat is extracted from cells that are stored in your fatty tissue. When these cells are empty, your body breaks down the cellular structure and absorbs it. But breaking up useless cells, connective tissue, or blood vessels, can lag far behind the process of extracting fat.

When this happens, your body replaces some of the extracted fat with water which is retained for this purpose. But because water is heavier than fat it may appear that you have lost no weight at all. When in reality you probably have lost a good amount of fat exactly where you were supposed to, but then your body had replaced that fat with water.

When this tissue is finally broken down, the water is released and you may find yourself urinating very often. At the same time, you should have a sudden drop in weight too.

But because this happens, some people think that they must have done something wrong, when really everything is going quite normal. This is why some people will notice that they have lost inches in their waist, but not dropped any weight according to the scale.

So if your waist get smaller but your weight loss slows down, don't worry, you're not alone.

What was the most amount of inches that you lost in one day?

  1. I am a bit confused. I went to the health food store to get my flavored stevia and some vitamins and one of the workers asked if I was doing the HCG diet I responded with yes I am and she recommended me taking MCT oil 1 tablespoon per day and said this would increase weightloss and was referred to her by a naturepath as well as a supplement called 5htp or 5htcp,she said both of these would help with cravings and increase weightloss. Do you know anything about this? Also is MCT oil ok in phase 2? I have read yes in phase 3 but not sure about 2

  2. Hi Kristin,

    The HCG Protocol says that most oils are bad and to stay away from them. But, some people say that MTC oil and 5HTP (I don't know about 5HTCP) can both be used during phase 2.

    However, a lot of these things are just trial and error. If you decide to try one and you plateau or even gain weight, stop immediately!

    The only thing is that while you are on the HCG Diet, every single day is precious time. You don't want to give up even 1 day of weight loss.

    But if you feel like you absolutely need something and increasing the HCG Hormone hasn't helped, then you might want to try one of these things. Just make sure to use caution.

    Thanks for your question,

    Brian M. Connole

HCG Diet Apple Day

Want To Know More About How To Do An HCG Diet Apple Day? An Apple Day can be very useful when it comes to breaking up a plateau on the HCG Diet. The only trouble is not everyone knows how Apple Days are supposed to be done. So today I thought we answer some of the more common questions that people ask about doing an HCG Diet Apple Day. What are Apple Days used for? For the most part Apple Days are used as a Plateau Breaker . When would I start my Apple Day? An Apple Day should always begin at lunch time and continue for 24 hours until lunch the following day. How many apples can I eat? You are allowed to have a total of six large apples throughout the course of the entire day. Do I have to eat my apples at certain times? No. Basically you can eat your apples whenever you'd like. But I would recommend that you eat an apple in place of each meal. Then in between your normal eating times if you find yourself getting hungry simply have another apple; just

However, simply eating 500-800 calories per day isn't enough to lose those unwanted pounds and inches; especially if you want to keep them off for good - For that you must also use high quality pharmaceutical grade HCG. These days though it can be tough to find a trusted company that offers the HCG Diet in full. That's why I recommend hcgRx to all of my readers. Over the years running The HCG 411 Blog I have seen a lot of different HCG companies come and go but none of them are like hcgRx. I have had many personal conversations with the owners and have never met someone who cares as much about their products and users as they do. hcgRx has a wide variety of HCG Diet packages and products to choose from online.  While most people prefer to do a single 28 day round at a time, there are longer rounds available that can be done depending on your weight loss
