ARE YOU EATING ENOUGH?


Completing the HCG diet was hard work, but well worth it.  Please be sure to eat plenty of protein, veggies and fruits.  Skipping meals or not eating enough will slow down your metabolism.

TWO WEEKS AFTER COMPLETING THE HCG DIET – STILL KEEPING THE WEIGHT OFF


I just finished week two, and I am doing very well.  In fact, I am eating a substantial amount of food and  able to keep the weight off.   I thought I would share what I ate this morning for breakfast.  

I always buy organic omega three eggs because they are so much better for you.  As for bacon, I only purchase nitrite and nitrate free bacon from the health food store.  Regular bacon is loaded with the cancer causing chemical sodium nitrate.


Since I am not supposed to eat carbs, I saute onions in olive oil. YUM! YUM!

HOPE WITH HCG DIET

Why is it that men can lose weight so easily, but us women can eat like birds, exercise like crazy and still have problem losing?  Life is not fair.  I have observed my husband eat like a pig  but managed to keep his weight gain in total control.  If and when he decides to go on a diet he drops the pounds  without too much trouble.  Me , on the other, I would eat like a bird exercise six days a week and only lost a mere 5lbs.  Shameful!


Well, to the rescue comes HCG, most women can lose 1/2 to 1lb per day on the HCG DIET.  For more information on how that works, please see my previous post on how to do the diet.


Please email me at: lumiereleclaire@yahoo.com if you have questions, I created this blog for all women who are serious about getting results.  I am by no means a diet expert, I just want to share this great diet so you can avoid the frustrations I had to endure in my quest to lose this unwanted weight.

KEEPING THE WEIGHT OFF


After one completes the HCG Diet it is very important to eat protein, veggies, and fruits.  The recommendation:  Stay clear of sugars and carbs.   Your body has a chance to adjust to your new weight when you avoid sugars and carbs.  Your system is fighting like crazy to go back to its original weight.   The best thing you can do is to focus on what you can eat, not what you can’t have.  I love this phase of the diet because I can virtually eat what I want except for carbs and sugars.
I love eating a lot of protein, so cutting out sugars and carbs does not bother me much.  I love the way I feel and I am keeping the weight off.
I took this picture when I  started the diet for the first time  back in December.  I looked pretty heavy.


After the diet, I lost most of the fat in my stomach.  I lost tons of inches on my arms and chest.

One note of caution: Be sure to eat plenty of food, your body needs the calories  to keep it running well.  Many people make the grand error of not eating enough thinking this will keep them from gaining  weight back.  The opposite is true.  This is the real beauty of the HCG DIET.  You can start eating  a 1,200 to 2,000 calorie diet without gaining the weight back.Yay!

This is what I ate the day I went off the diet.  I craved some sweets, so I made me some baked apples with cinnamon and sprinkled it with stevia powder. YUM!

LOSING INCHES WITH HCG

One does not only lose lbs with the HCG but can virtually melt away inches as well.  In December I took my daugther to shop at her favorite store, Forever 21. Oh my! I saw this very trendy red coat.  I instantly fell in love with the coat.  Much to my dismay, the coat did not fit me well. I could barely fasten the buttons, but I took a leap of faith and purchased the coat .  I thought, if after my diet the coat does not fit , I can always give it to my daughter.  Well, after 35 days on the HCG, I  tried on my trendy red coat.  drum roll please!
