yeah, if they were elevated recently I'd think twice about a highly detoxifying ketogenic diet. I'm sorry! You may need to transition more slowly or try something else a bit more conventional for weight loss.
Was doing so good, down 9.6 (1.something more than I lost total the 2nd time I did the protocol) and then now it's TOM week. It came yesterday a little bit, when it usually comes Friday. Now I'm up .8 today! ARGH! I'm sure it will go away next week, it's bloating or whatever but daaaaang is that a jolt to the system to see on the scale.
Bah I totally screwed up today. I'm all periody and emotional. I'll be paying for that tomorrow for sure. Nothing like a little self-sabotage to ruin the day. Off to chug some water and walk a little bit before bed.
E, ha, yeah, my calories were increased a lot today.
OK ladies..I am back and need to hope back on the diet, but I was using Evoke hcg....you can't get it anymore. Can someone recommend a good (and farely inexpensive) Hcg to buy?
I am scared to try another one, especially since it has changed to vibrational (whatever that means) hcg. I am afraid if I just buy any old kind, like they sell at walmart now, that I would end up with none in it at all!!
I've been on this diet twice already, the first time I lost 30 pounds from 192 down to 162, I was a perfect size 8 and some size 6.
When i got off the diet, i didn't follow protocol, and due to stress and anxioty, gained it all back. I have an eating disorder, thats what i call it.
The second time I started on 9/15/12, and have lost 14 pounds, and would have lost more if I ate according to the protocol, I also cheated a total of 4 days.
I started ovulating a year ago, where I had 8 month of no period and sever hot flashes. HCG has restored my periods to monthly basis after I've completed my first round.
So, I am a great believer of this HCG stuff. The first time I did shots and paid an arm and a leg for it. Second round I ordered drops that cost 90% cheaper and are more affective and i feel no hunger whats so ever.
I can't seem to find any actual hcg anywhere & I know my dr won't got for it. I tried this "Activator" stuff I got at GNC. Now, I ad BAD hyperemesis gravidarum with 2 out of 3 of my girls. By the afternoon of day 2 I was really nauseous. I took a couple benedryl and laid down and I don't know if it was a fluke, but I'm scared to invest in more if it's only going to make me sick (too tough of a way to lose weight, lol).
I don't want to read through 74 pages, but where do you get yours and is nausea really common? Thanks!
I gain maybe 4 lbs the week before my period starts, and then lose it + some after my period finishes! I attribute it to water retention and increased terrible food intake! I get really nauseated during my period though so I think that also might be what contributes to after period weight loss!
