    Felt "empty" again today. Kind of an annoying feeling. Had some sugar free jello which was AWESOME. Going to start taking the Mega-T again tomorrow, it may just be in my head but I swear it helps. I had stopped taking it because I wasn't feeling any "hunger" until the past 2 days and honestly I forgot about it.

    2nd day of no significant change in weight. I know some other people have said they didn't always lose weight every day, but would plateau for a couple days then drop 2-3 pounds the next day. We'll see what the scale says tomorrow...
    Stay strong, bro. I'm really interested to see how the next few days play out for you. Day 8 is where I stopped, so you've already made it further than me.


  2. Well, my wife is wanting to lose about 12 lbs so since a pile of her friends were talking about it she's going to try the HCG diet too

    Is she going to use legit hCG with injections? or the OTC stuff?

    No doubt man I'm sticking with this til the end.

    I weighed in at 182.4 this morning (day 10) so I'm down another pound. I think I'm going to wait until Sunday to get back to the gym since every time I go it seems to mess with the weight loss. I'm also going to start adding in a little bit of cardio and see if that might get things going.

  5. I'd say guess but injected, I have HCG here, I was prescribed it with TRT. At least I believe its possible for the protocol to work with women, as putting the body into a "pregnancy" state makes some sense as far as changing metabolic activity.

    Have either of you read up on how it affects women? Depending on her starting weight she might have to stick with it for a while with slower results. Several of the personal stories I've read from women that had relatively average starting weights (not obese) were saying it takes close to a full 40 day cycle to drop 10 lbs.

    I'm not saying this is the case for all women but it might help to keep expectations realistic. An average size woman wanting to lose 15 pounds in less than a month probably isn't going to happen.

    Good luck to her if she decides to go with it!

    Haha good. I know you're smart enough, but just didn't know if her choice was the homeopathic style that's being pushed. I hope you'll let us know how her progress goes on it.

    I'll say that I think something had to be working since I had great energy on just 500 calories; which normally would not be the case at all (and since I was never "hungry" and just wanted to eat).

  8. Yeah, we'll see how it goes. its not like she exercises at all, so the weight loss probably wont be all that fast. plenty of HCG to do it repeatedly though if necessary. We'll see how it affects her moodwise too, as she was pretty happy during her pregnancies

  9. Great info

    That could be really awesome if it turned out to enhance her mood.

    And in women, I don't know how much the exercise factor would play in. I think it's fine, really. I know I wasn't doing any cardio and others I'd talked to who ran it didn't recommend it. In fact, I wouldn't even lift if it weren't to preserve muscle. That's why lifting heavy and hard, get in, get out seemed to be the logical choice to keep muscle preserved and strength up (and extra BCAAs where I could sneak them in, too).

  11. i was thinking of getting on the hcg to drop some pounds fast going to be watching your log so i can see if it will help me drop weight good luck

  12. Day 10
    182.4 lbs (-1.0, -7.8 total)

    Felt good today. Finally dropped a pound after 2 days of nothing. My pants felt noticeably looser and I went a notch smaller on my belt, which was the first real physical change I've been able to see.

    Good deal, bro!

  14. So in what I looked at from Simeons original study with women they used 125iu, so that's what I started my wife at today.

    Keep us posted.

    That's what I used as well. 5,000iu mixed into 20mL bacteriostatic water for 50cc/day.

  16. Day 11
    181.8 (-0.6, -8.4 total)

    Physically I'm still feeling good and I don't have any real hunger, but I'm starting to go insane from thinking about all the food I can't eat. I've never thought about food this much when I wasn't hungry.

    Tomorrow I'm going out for lunch with the family for my sister's birthday. I can't get out of it and I would go crazy sitting there not eating, so we're going to see how much of an effect one cheat meal has on this diet.

    Like I said, the mental part is the battle, that's for sure.

    I went out to lunch with co-workers several times and didn't eat. They understand how I diet for training, though.

  18. Day 12
    180.6 lbs (-1.2, -9.6 total)

    Felt great today physically and mentally. I felt like a whiny little bitch yesterday but seeing that scale drop again this morning really kicked my willpower back into gear.

    I still let myself indulge at lunch instead of having my normal chicken & broccoli, but I managed to limit the damage to a small plate of 3 boneless wings and a few appetizers. Normally I wouldn't have considered this to be more than a little snack, but it did wonders for satisfying my cravings and kept me full for the rest of the afternoon. Diet was perfect for the rest of the day.

    My workout tonight was solid but not quite as intense as last time so most of my weights stayed the same. I'm sure nobody cares about my specific numbers so I'll just keep those to my little gym notepad. The main point I wanted to make is that as a beginner doing compound lifts 2x per week I'm still able to slowly but surely add weight to the bar.

    Congrats, buddy! I'm glad to hear it's going so well for you. On top of that, I'm very impressed at your ability to control yourself while you were out - good job.

    I would personally say that for anyone this should be sort of a last resort when it comes to fat-loss.

    I think a solid diet and training plan, losing 1-2 pounds/week is way better for you. However, for those that have trouble with it, I think this could be a viable alternative. We also haven't seen that many instances of bodybuilders or those who have some level of muscle and are not just simply obese using this method. I think the more that we see people in these situations using it, we'll have a much better way of telling its effectiveness.

  22. Sorry can i ask , how the heck to you get rid of love handles?? Lol i mean i aint got them bad boy no means but i have um so?

    Just by lowering bodyfat even lower than it already is. Unfortunately, you can't spot reduce. I do like side planks, though, and weighted side crunches, holding a dumbell on the lower back extension bench.

  24. Oh right i do ball cruchin and dumbells to my sides aswell .. When you say side planks do you mean it as insted of fat you like it if its hard?

    Can i ask how much cardio should people do? I do 10mins before workout

    This is what I mean by side planks:



    And there's no blanket answer for how much cardio to do. Nutrition is going to be 99% of what gets your body the look you want. But if you're doing cardio for fat loss, I'd recommend doing it after lifting, not before, or ideally as an entirely separate workout (e.g. lift in the morning, cardio in the evening).
