One year, 110 pounds down and holding. BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES.

  1. Thumbs up One year, 110 pounds down and holding. BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES.

    Hey kids! Story time with a happy ending.

    June 2011 I read an article about some diet that people lose weight just by taking Drops. I got my first bottle for the cost of S&H for $5. So if it didn’t work then no biggy. Ordered it then everyone started telling me about how bad this HCG diet is and how people gain their weight back and how you starve yourself to get the weight loss. I felt sick with anxiety ’cause I was sure I made the wrong choice. I had a Dr’s appt that week and decided to talk to them. I had a full physical (just no turn and cough).

    Here is the results of my blood work:
    Test Name ~ Results ~ Normal Range
    Chol~~~~~~~249~~~~130-199
    Trig~~~~~~~398~~~~30-199
    Direct HDL~~~38.65~~~40-59
    LDL~~~~~~~131~~~~~60-129

    I was 35 at the time of the test and physical and weighted ~340 lbs (I am 6’6”). FYI my waist size was 54 and I wore 2XXL shirts.

    I was on High Blood Pressure medication (my eyesight was blurred)
    Medication for tremors (side-effect of another med)
    GERD meds (many nights waking up choking on my vomit- thought I would die)
    Countenance problems (let you figure that one out)
    Wheezed all the time (I mean ALL the time)
    Sex (what’s that?)
    Couldn’t tie my shoes without coordinating it with breathing (wore mostly sandles)
    Broke a toilet seat… I was just fracking big.

    Here are some pictures:

    Well after talking to my Dr and Pharmacist (no drug interaction with holistic), I figured I could stop it if I need to. I took a lot of medication that dealt with my body’s chemistry and I wasn’t willing to sacrifice “health” for a unorthodox diet (I don’t diet). My mom is a 2 gen RN (she supported me but was totally against it) and I have worked in the medical field one way or another most my life. So we both kept a close eye on my mental, emotional and physical progress.

    Then I began my first cycle of the five I did. Found out right off that Loading wasn’t easy. Even though I was gi-normous, I must have had some self-control because it was hard to stuff my face (not impossible though). Stage 1 : + 2lbs

    Stage 2 was exciting and upsetting at times. In the first week I lost 17.8lbs and lost a total of 51.7 lbs in ~40 days! That was the gooder news. The bad news was how I did it. I had good intentions of walking at least once a week but I never did, till day 38. Why is that important? I think the exercise caused a stall and some effects of ketosis where showing (extreme meanness). I knew what had happened and I had to stop while I had control. OF COURSE there is that whole 500 calorie thing. I went from 4000 calories a day to 500 so it was an adjustment at first. I did my meals wrong a few times and figured out what worked and stuck with it. I got vegies 2wise a week and bagged them all at once (did the same with the proteins). I did a psychology experiment on myself. At first I ate all the food very bland and once I got sick of it I added a little to it and so on. Worked for me. I was also forever on the computer searching the forums for help on what to eat, where to get the Drops and to get encouragement (Thanks Forum). I was very hard on myself. I wouldn’t even lick the cookie dough off the mixing spoon! I am nothing special, I just used the encouragement from good experiments for myself.

    Stage 3 was actually harder than Stage 2. Why? Because now I can eat but everything had starch and sugar in it! I’m not kidding, look at shredded cheese- has starch to keep it from sticking, bacon has sugar, really just look for yourself (unless you already have). I ate mostly eggs, sugar free bacon, block cheese, and apples (it does keep the doctor away).

    I did Stage 3 for 3 weeks and went right back into the next cycle.

    Things I learned over 5 Cycles:

    All cycles are pretty much the same as your first cycle.
    The first two weeks of Stage 2 are the most important in setting the pace for the VLCDs.
    Buy cheap clothes to replace the ones that are to big- you will lose the inches.
    Find a support group, mine was this forum.
    Weight everyday, if not it is like driving with your eyes closed.
    Find a big pillow and an empty closet to let out your frustrations (or something softer than the kitchen counter to hit).
    THIS DIET WORKS FOR EVERYONE! Just kidding, it may not be for you and for some people that I work with I tell them not to do it ’cause of health.
    To much exertion will cause you to stall.
    Not enough water will make you stall.
    Find an apple that you like and stick with it. Try them all.
    Eat ALL of your daily elotted food everyday. Keeps you from getting too hunger.
    Don’t eat late at night.
    Try new foods like fish or vegs. I started eating grapefruit which I never did before.
    Spread your meal out so you have either a snack or a meal every 2 to 3 hours.
    That’s it for now…

    The other 4 Cycles were the same. After my first 2 weeks in Stage 2 I would “expand” my menu. coconut oil, broccoli, diet sodas, and a few other rogue items- just nothing to crazy. Find what works for you and stick to it.

    I am 2 months out from LDW (Last Drops Weight) of ~220 and have kept with in 10 lbs of that weight. I eat fruits before 11am and stick to a modified Stage 3 diet (avoid if I can sugar and starch). My blood work is MUCH better. Chol- 187; Tri- 63; Direct HDL- 52; LDL- 122. Instead of 12 medications I now take 4! Check out my other Thread to see more on my first 6 months.

    Again Thanks Forum and hope everyone sticks with it.

    PEACE OUT!

    FYI- This is my Levels of Protocol Deviation (cheating). They are:

    Level 1: Mixing Foods
    Level 2: Larger Portion Size
    Level 3: Rogue Menu found on Forum
    Level 4: Stage 3 Crossover (avoiding sugar and starches)
    Level 5: The “Who-gives-a-frack-I-am-Cheating” Phase

    Fat does not melt away- you burn it. You may lose inches and not pounds.
    Conclusion: hhcg works.

    Any questions?

    Congratulations!!!! You did very well. My problem is sticking with protocol. I have foods I know I should not have. Guess I just need to get my mind set on doing this. Any suggestions?

    Get one of the cook books, they can get you hungry for things you can eat.

    I improvised and took my time to make the dish look nice and appealing.

    IMAG0112.jpgIMAG0115.jpgIMAG0132.jpg

    First picture is of a 4oz cut of lean beef sauted in coconut oil (rouge-ish). The tomatoes I cut and put in a large plastic bag with basil, oregano, salt, and balsamic vinegar. Microwaved that and served it on a large plate.

    Second picture is sauted U-12 shrimp with heirloom tomatoes and Cajun spices. Side of Melba toast.

    Third is sauted whitefish with Italian spices and the same style tomatoes as the first.

    Hope this helps you stay on protocol as much as possible. Just stick with it as much at first and you will find out you can change somethings around. Not suggesting it but just saying.

    Cheers

    PS Yes the portion size on the tomatoes are bigger than 2 cups but I’m a big guy and I love ’em now.

    Great job! My first round I was a “regular” at good to get smaller and smaller jeans. I love hearing when people do so well and get healthy on HCG and not doing Gastric bypass (which most DR’s say is ok – I think a lot of it is about the $$$) they cant make as much off HCG, right?

    I am 5’4″ 44 yo. Was stable at 123 last round, lost focus, back at 144.
    R1 1/11 Started at 170lbs got to 140. Another round 9/12 got to 123. Goal is to get back in that area and hold under 130.

    Health but hard option. Take stick-to-attive-ness.

    Another after shot. Gotta love good use of low lighting.
