I did it! I made it through 40 days on the HCG Diet! I actually took the drops for a few additional days since I had already paid for them. I lost a total of 22 pounds. Now a am scared and worried how I am going to keep it off! I am so surprise how much energy I have now. I think cutting out carbs, milk and gluten all helped!
Day 40 was officially August 2nd and I hadn’t reached my goal of 20 pounds. I am glad I stayed on a few more days.
Now starts the transition phase. I am gradually working my way up to 1200 calories. I am “allowed” to add some additional fruits and meats and one new veggie back in. Shocker – I get to have avocado! It is one of my favorites! And my new favorite thing to eat – grill a chicken breast and then put it in the food processor. In a small bowl mash up 1/2 of an avocado with lemon juice and salt. Then mix in the chicken. It has to be one of the yummiest chicken salads ever!
I am looking forward to expanding my choices. I am also looking forward to exercise. I now have energy again! I will start walking soon.
