    Hey all! I have come upon a new lifestyle of eating habits and healthy-ness!
    Its called the HCG diet...Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone produced in pregnancy. So you take the drops/shots.. I take the drops and it basically what is does instead of feeding a fetus.. it feeds off the fat. So all those stubborn areas you can never ever get rid of sort of disappear. It is a pretty strict diet. But very healthy, fruits, vegetables, proteins, water etc.

    I really really like this plan and heard about it from a friend who did really well on it and a couple of girls I work with in the hospital also have done it and have seen great results. It is all about portion size and food control. I have been on it for 20 days and have lost 14 pounds. You can do it the diet for up to 40 days. And then you go on a maintenance plan to keep the weight off etc. I feel extremely healthy and fit and love waking up in the morning to feel myself... almost smaller! Hard to believe but its true!!!!!

    I think before the wedding around december I will do another round of it, to be exactly where I want to be for my January wedding!

    Just wondering if anyone else has tried it?? And what you thought? Or if anyone is thinking about trying it!?

      Wow, 14 lbs in 20 days?! That's amazing...what type of drops are you taking? Is it over the counter, or some kind of perscription? I would be interested, but I don't know much about it.

          Question...Are you really only eating 500 calories a day? That's the first thing I saw in an information article.

            I did this diet because it was prescribed by my holistic doctor to regulate my thyroid. It hasn't regulated my thyroid, but I did lose about 20 pounds in a month. However, because of my thyroid problems I have gained back about 8 pounds and have trouble keeping weight off. Do a lot of research before starting it and TRY to get the prescription rather than purchasing it off the internet. It is a VERY strict diet, but the good news is that after the first few days the HCG really works and takes away the hunger. It also supplies calories so you don't go into "starvation" mode. I'm not advocating the diet, I'm just saying it worked for me. Yahoo has a group message board that is VERY helpful. Good luck!

              ToniR-Oh Yah I have been on it for 22 days. ANd I know I need to strictly follow the maintenance plan after. I do have an irregular thyroid as well but I take synthroid for that and it seems to be working. I also didnt purchase it off the internet, I got it through a friend.

              KarlaS- Yes I am strictly 500 calories and it is extremely important. And the first 2 days I thought I was going to die! But after that I was totally good! If I am craving something, which isnt very often now, I have a taste of it and I am satisfied. I love the diet because it really helps you to eat in moderation! So far so good!

                    Omg, a thread on this! I wish it was started earlier! I did this a few months back, and lost fifteen pounds in a month! After that, I went on a vacation and broke the diet. i haven't been able to effectively do the diet again, and failed every time I tried doing it again. With transformations, the clinic I go to, you're allowed 800 calories a day! it's hard, and I found that spending $55 a week on shots and appetite supressants wasn't worth it! I was, like tonir, trying to regulate my thyroid, and got on a prescription for hypothyroidism, which was severely affecting my weight, also. So now, i'm trying to find a balance!

                    Please tell me if you girls had trouble getting back on once you got off. I find that I haven't been able to get past this point, and it's killing me!

                    i do suggest it if you have the willpower, however, it's just a little difficult giving yourself actual injections of the hormone. Did you guys have to take any injections, or just the drops? I wonder if the drops are as good, bc i will switch to that! Shots leaves bruises sometimes, and is a little painful, but you get used to it for sure!

                      inspiredfyre : I took it for 40 days and loved it. I did not do them through injections. I did them through the drops! So much cheaper I got 2 bottles for $110! I have kept off all my weight. and I am starting another round in about 2 weeks!!! Im totally excited and love love love this diet! I have an under active thyroid as well and PCOS and this is the only diet that works for me. I lost 18 pounds in a month!!! Give it another shot!
