Getting Discouraged On The HCG Diet

Are you starting to get discouraged about your progress on the HCG Diet?

One thing that I have noticed with the HCG Weight Loss Diet is - that the first week of weight loss is usually the best. Most people that have successfully completed the HCG Diet, say that they lost more weight in their first week than they in any other week during Phase 2.

This is actually a pretty well known fact among HCG Diet users. However, this doesn't seem to keep people from getting discouraged when weight loss slows down after that first week.

This is usually what happens - The first week of doing the HCG Hormone Injections, you are doing great; you lose 1 or possibly even 2 pounds a day. Then week number 2 starts and you are losing weight, but not nearly as much. By the end of that week you are starting to wonder if you are doing something wrong.

Well, ARE you doing something wrong? Probably Not!

In fact, this is actually pretty normal - especially for women. For some reason men seem to lose about a pound a day consistently throughout the entire diet. Where women tend to fluctuate a little more. A woman will usually lose about 1/2 pound a day; after the first week of coarse.

Here is my theory of why weight loss slows down after the first week...

I think that weight loss slows down after the first week because... The 2 Gorge Days are meant to restore structural fat which is located in reserves all over your body. Having these reserves allows the HCG to help your body start burning the right kind of fat.

So for the first week while those reserves are nice and full, your body will burn fat better, which means you lose weight easier. But by the time the second or third week rolls around, those reserves have start getting low. This means that you are not able burn as many calories as before, which results in less weight loss.

But I think because most men are naturally larger than women, we have more of these fat reserves throughout our body. So I think this is why we consistently lose about a pound a day while on the 500 Calorie Diet.

What can women do about this?

I think by eating more fattening foods and more food in general during your Gorge Days. This should help to get your fat reserves nice and full. You might even try doing a 3rd Gorge day like my wife Suzy did during her third round of the HCG Weight Loss Diet. We believe that this helped her lose quite a bit more weight by doing this.

But of coarse this is just my theory. However, if it makes sense to you too, give it a try. And remember, if you are losing weight you are doing things right. So don't give up.

What do you think of my theory?
