Ay yi yi!!!! What a week. Soooooooo everything was going great! I loved the loading days, doing OK on the low calorie days and then it hit me last Friday like a ton of bricks. SICKNESS. Not sure if it was from the low calorie diet or whether it was a little bug, but I had the runs like no ones business and ginger-ale and graham crackers were on the menu. Not allowed on HCG diet but let’s be serious. I was not about to try and choke down fish or chicken. Ummm no. So then I read this in the Pounds and Inches Manuscript…..
Few patients will take one's word for it that the slightest deviation from the diet has under HCG disastrous results as far as the weight is concerned. This extreme sensitivity has the advantage that the smallest error is immediately detectable at the daily weighing but most patients have to make the experience before they will believe it.
Um yeah, that would be me. Just from eating MINIMAL things that I could stomach for those two days, set me back 6!! That’s right. I went from 139.0 to 143.5 and now I am JUST seeing the scale move. I was 141.5 this morning. What a bummer. Oh well. Lesson learned. Moving on…..
