Starving

kinmi
I am on day 4 of the HCG program, day 2 of phase two.  I feel like I'm starving!  I am using the injections daily.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I've noticed many people saying they're not hungry at all.  I'm hoping to feel that way real soon or I'm not sure how long I can do this.

Well it is normal to feel a little hunger, because you are going from around 2000 calories a day to 500. But if it's more than just a little hunger, maybe you need to go to a higher dose. I noticed that staying busy would help me not to think about it. You might also try using your fruits for snacks in between meals rather than for lunch or dinner.

Good Luck,

Suzy

wondering if you made it through the starving stage and were able to stay on.  If so, how much did you lose?

I finished phase 2 on Friday.  The extreme hunger subsided but not completely.  I never really felt good like I have heard others say.   My goal was to lose 15 pounds and I lost 10, so I guess it wasn’t a total failure.  I do think however, that I probably would have lost that anyway by only eating 500 calories a day.  Perhaps it works better it you have more to lose. 

 

Thanks for inquiring.  I think the blog is a great support system.

Thanks for responding.  I am fearing the same result, although congrats, 10 lbs is great.  I only need to lose 15 - 20 lbs - stubborn post-baby fat that will not go away.  So I am not technically overweight but very close.  So realistically I expect to lose only 10 lbs.  If I lose more than that than I might become a believer in HCG.  Otherwise, I will probably come to the same conclusion - of course you are going to lose weight on a 500 cal diet...
What about the losing stubborn fat thing?  Do you think you lost in those areas?

Thanks.
