Small hunger issue

Discussion in 'HCG Protocol' started by DarleenMB, Jul 14, 2012.

    Today is my 3rd injection day, first VLCD day and I haven't eaten yet this morning (it's now 10:30). I'm having a tiny bit of hunger, nothing I can't ignore but I'm wondering if I'm using enough hcg. I've been taking 125units and thinking maybe I should bump that up just a bit.

    Colleen? Anyone?
  2. What brand/kind of hcg? It took me a week to get it all adjusted - and I had stomach cramp hunger the first few days. Don't know if that just settles down as a matter of course, or if it was dosing adjustments.

    I started at 175, way too high. Seems there is a bit of a curve towards more fat needing less dosage. I was 240 lbds after load so a little bigger than you.

    From Colleen I've seen the Corian needing smaller doses than say the HUCOG.

    Also what is in your calorie free dressing? Not worried it will interfere?
  3. Also Darleen - for me I just couldn't make it doing breakfast. . .I was much less hungry in the a.m., and just had to go with that to get into the groove. I also saved fruit for afternoon snack. I didn't have any problems not eating after dinner - perhaps because I was already trained into that behavior.

    Hi Darleen, I am on VLCD day 1 today, (r3), and I can tell you that sometimes if your load was not 'enough' fat, that it may take another few days for the hcg to hold down that hunger. How was your load? Also, don't forget the water.

    I'm using Bharat hcg. Same kind I used before from the same place.

    I ate my usual 75% fat both loading days. My biggest problem has been the 90+ heat for the last several weeks. It has KILLED my appetite. I eat that BAB and then don't WANT to eat any more the rest of the day. I might get a little hungry but I don't WANNA eat! So I don't THINK it was not enough fat. Maybe ... I don't know.

    The hunger has been just there. A little noticeable but not too much. I still think I"m going to bump to 130 units tomorrow and see how it goes. Everything else seems fine. Checked my blood glucose just before I ate and it was 86. ??? I held off eating until noonish because stuff just got in the way. I was fine with it. But I'm noticing a little hunger again. wondering if I'm just thirsty so am drinking/chugging a big glass of iced green tea.

    Bumped my dose this morning to 30cc or 150 units. Dropped 2.6 pounds yesterday. :D
  7. Woot. How's hunger today? I'm back in my hunger groove after being a little too hungry last couple of days.

    What I found was the kind of hunger that makes your tummy growl and wiggle is too much, and the kind of hunger where you think too much of eating too many yummy foods is a sign that the dose is too low.

    Cavemam mine was the 2nd kind ... We'll see how I do on the slightly higher dose but I'm noticing this afternoon the hunger thing appears to have left.

    Sorry I"m traveling and just saw this. Sometimes the first day can have a TAD of hunger but if you're extremely hungry the first day the dose is usually too high. And with each subsequent round, you usually need to lower the dose so keep an eye on things. good luck!

    Thanks Colleen. I wasn't extremely hungry just aware of hunger. I upped the dose but now I'm dealing with fractured sleep from heat, cats and having to get up 10 times a night to pee. Plus I have been headachy since last night. Not sure what's going on but am trying not to just give up. I feel THAT lousy. I'm sure it will pass. I just remind myself this is JUST a 21 day round. I can DO this. The whole thing is an attempt to jumpstart my weight loss.

    100 years is a long time may be there will be a new means of producing food so put your practicalyty on crating something for the future.
