My experience with the HCG protocol was a pleasant surprise to me because when I heard that I would be eating 500 calories a day I just assumed that I would starve for 23 days until it was done. I was raised with a sweet Italian family that taught me food was the cure for everything! Happy or sad, food was our focus!
I turned 41 this year and eating a toxic diet my whole life caught up with me. Not only did I gain weight, I felt exactly how I was eating toxic! I was feeling tired and depressed. I knew that I wanted to lose some weight, but more than that, I wanted to feel better!
When I heard of the HCG cleanse, I was excited to try it. After the first three days of having a party in my mouth (the high fat and sugar part of the program) I was looking forward to begin the cleanse! The first few days were great because I instantly felt better and the scale was going down quickly. I couldn’t believe that I wasn’t hungry!
When I would start to feel hunger pangs it would be time for a small meal or snack. Being the food-aholic that I was raised to be, made being disciplined the hardest part, but I was committed. I ended up losing 12 pounds of fat and toxins and I feel better than I have in years! I have just completed the 3-week maintenance program and now I am looking forward to a new, healthier lifestyle change! I am so thankful for the encouragement and for the opportunity to feel and look better! Thank you!!!
