Thread: Stopping Early

  1. #1
    Okay. I started as a fairly skinny person with only about 10 pounds to lose. I was mostly doing this along with my husband for support (I know which is bad) But now I am down more than 10 pounds and my husband thinks im to skinny and should stop. I know in the diet that it won't let you lose more weight than you have to lose, but I am starting to feel alot more hunger and fatigue. Has anyone heard of stopping early? Meaning stopping the drops and eating the vlcd for 3 more days and then starting phase 3?? I have not been able to find any answers so far. Hoping someone can shed some light on this for me.
    Thanks!

    if you're at your goal weight, increase your calories to 800-1000, but still take the hcg until you get to day 23.

    As long as you've done your 23 days, you can stop whenever. If you haven't done the 23 days, you just up your P2 diet up to 800-1000 calories so you stop losing.
    R1 starting weight 200.4lbs
    Current weight after R2 161lbs
    19.5 inches lost

    How would I add those calories? In meat, fruits, veggies? Extra meal? Have you heard of anyone phasing to 3 early with success? or failure?

    You need to do the 23 days..if you go to phase 3 early, you will probably regain the weight. Have you read pounds and inches? There is a section in there that explains what to do if you have lost all the weight you need to.

    Maybe I don't sugar coat it, lol. What if I want to stop? And go to phase 3.... Because I have some things coming up and know I can't maintain this for that time period. So I want to stop the drops and go to phase 3. Has anyone experienced it? Or have any thoughts on it? What is special about 23 days?

    This is from pounds and inches:

    Patients who need to lose 15 pounds (7 kg.) or less require 26 days treatment with 23 daily injections. The extra three days are needed because all patients must continue the 500-Calorie diet for three days after the last injection. This is a very essential part of the treatment, because if they start eating normally as long as there is even a trace of HCG in their body they put on weight alarmingly at the end of the treatment. After three days when all the HCG has been eliminated this does not happen, because the blood is then no longer saturated with food and can thus accommodate an extra influx from the intestines without increasing its volume by retaining water.



    We never give a treatment lasting less than 26 days, even in patients needing to lose only 5 pounds. It seems that even in the mildest cases of obesity the diencephalon requires about three weeks rest from the maximal exertion to which it has been previously subjected in order to regain fully its normal fat-banking capacity. Clinically this expresses itself, in the fact that, when in these mild cases, treatment is stopped as soon as the weight is normal, which may be achieved in a week, it is much more easily regained than after a full course of 23 injections.



    As soon as such patients have lost all their abnormal superfluous fat, they at once begin to feel ravenously hungry in spite of continued injections. This is because HCG only puts abnormal fat into circulation and cannot, in the doses used, liberate normal fat deposits; indeed, it seems to prevent their consumption. As soon as their statistically normal weight is reached, these patients are put on 800-1000 Calories for the rest of the treatment.



    The diet is arranged in such a way that the weight remains perfectly stationary and is thus continued for three days after the 23rd injection. Only then are the patients free to eat anything they please except sugar and starches for the next three weeks.



    Ultimately it is up to you what you want to do

    If you stop before the 23 injections and 3 vlcd days without hcg you will have problems. It takes the 23 days to reset your hypothalamus, so if you quit early you may not be able to stabilize, meaning you may go the way other diets go, lose 10 gain 20.

    But how do I add the extra calories?
