Well, I have certainly been neglecting my blogging "responsibilities," haven't I? I've been doing overnight shifts at work and I usually just end up being a bump on a log for the rest of the day. But I wanted you to know that I have lost 13lbs! I lost six pounds on my own by portion control & exercise. & just recently I started the hCG diet. hCG is a pregnancy hormone that targets the bad fat cells & burns those suckers up! It's a VLCD (very low calorie diet -- 500 to be exact) & for the majority of the regimen, you're limited to lean meats, white fish, fruits, and veggies. No starches, no sugars, no oils (coconut is okay). Now, I cheated & ate whatever the hell I wanted for maybe 5 days & stalled but I am back on the train again! I want this flab GONE, please. Here's my meal plan today & an example what a typical day is like...

  • Take hCG drops (wait 30 minutes then...)
  • Chocolate Smooth Move Tea
  • Apple cider vinegar drink

  • 2 Crispy Thin crackers
  • Small baked gala apple, sprinkled with cinnamon
  • Take hCG drops (wait 30 minutes then...)
  • 100g (~3.5oz) of chicken breast sauteed with garlic, allspice, pepper, tiny dash of soy sauce
  • Generous handful of sauteed spinach
  • Tea
  • Handful of strawberries
  • Lemon water
  • (after 30 minutes, take hCG drops)
  • 100g of uncooked shrimp sauteed in coconut oil with garlic, lemon zest & juice, thyme, pepper
  • Small onion, sauteed.
  • Shirataki noodles (this is a little cheat... these noodles are essentially nothing but fiber & are okay for most people. It will cause a stall with some metabolisms so test it out!)
  • Take hCG drops (wait 30 minutes then...)
  • A Crispy Thin cracker

& That's that! I track my calories with MyFitnessPal app and keep track of my drops using hCG Diet App. They are both super handy. The hCG Diet app also helps you track your water, snack, & meal intake and has an entire list of approved foods for each phase. Also, it has the entire "Inches and Pounds" book by Dr. Simeons, the 'creator' of the hCG diet. It's a little spendy but I highly recommend if you plan on doing the diet.

Have any of you tried the diet & had success? What about any yummy recipes?

I'm going to do a better job of documenting my progress from here on out, I swear! I'm super hungry right now so I'm off to go make lunch.
