I'm on phase 2 of the HCG diet. I started the diet about 2 weeks ago. I started at 222 lbs, and went down to 206.1 lbs in just a week and a half. But for the last few days I've been on a plateau. I had an "apple" day a couple of days ago. The next day, I lost 2.5 lbs and was really happy that I broke the plateau. But now I gained 2 lbs in the last 2 days and back to 204.6 lbs. I haven't cheated and been following the diet exactly how I should. I'm taking B-12 and doing the apple cider vinegar. Why I'm I not losing anymore weight? Why am I gaining weight!?! I'm really nervous to weigh myself tomorrow morning. Should I try another "apple" day or try a "steak" day? Please help me! Thanks
Its really difficult to answer these questions when the "original" protocol was not used. Whenever an alternate protocol is used results will vary. So when you say you are following the diet to a T it also depends on what you are following.
Go to my site, listed below. On the first page you will see a free download of the book. Under "The Program" you will also see the original protocol.
I say this because no where in the original protocol is the use of Apple Cider Vinegar. Not that its bad but this diet is so restrictive and precise that it must be followed as it was developed to be to get the same results.
Hope this helps!
Thanks. Well, I actually heard something similar to your answer the day I posted my question from a friend of mine, and I've stoped taking the apple cider vinegar for the last 2 days. Yet, I'm still stuck at the same weight of 204.6 lbs. I went to your site and I know I read that you CANT become immune to the HCG drops, but at plenty of other sites, I keep reading that I can. So am I immune to the drops and begin Phase 3 of the protocol? If not, then what should I do then? Should I have an "apple" day and then a "steak" day? Please and Thank You!! (again)
If this is your first round and at the point you wrote on the board you were only 2 weeks in I would have to say there is no way you are immune. It must be the protocol you are using.
wow, just finished reading the entire protocol Misty, thanks, crystal clear to me now. again, my mind is made up and i'm all over it. will keep you posted, oh have you heard of the hcg pill, and i keep getting confused about the needles to use or if i buy my own the confusion is, u know how the tick marks are located at every 5cc's meaning there'll be a mark at 5,10,15,20 all the way down to i think the ones i have goes to like 50. so, do i draw enough hcg all the way to the 15 hash mark which would total 150cc's of hcg, you know what i mean, please please help me on that one. thanks for everything misty,
when I went to your website i could not find the area that said The Program.
Would like to readf more about this diet.
