Dr. Cara Phillipo and Day 16 on the HCG Phase of the HCG Diet Portland
|December 8, 2013|
Day 16 on Phase II of the HCG Diet Program at The Natural Path
Well, I am in full swing with this HCG Diet Program at this point ... Day 16. My plan is to go just one more week. I feel like this has become a normal part of my world to eat lean protein, vegetables and fruit ONLY. Of course, I am also only eating those foods on our HCG Diet phase II shopping list. It is true, nothing else has crossed my lips in the 14 days that I have been on phase II of this program (the first 2 days were loading days). After the first 8 days it has been amazingly EASY!
Have I been hungry on the HCG Diet?
This is the burning question that everyone keeps asking me. The truth is that I do get hungry ... but not very often. When hunger strikes, I drink about 12 ounces of water and have a small amount of protein and vegetable. On top of Dr. Simeons original HCG Diet protocol that we have modified in our Portland based HCG Diet Clinic ... I am having an extra serving of protein, vegetable and fruit. I am getting closer to 750 calories per day. I am also very active!
What quantifiable changes do I notice in my Body from the HCG Diet Protocol
I notice that my skin just feels a lot thinner overall. I can see the outline of my muscles in greater detail. I feel nice and light in my body. I feel strong. I do not feel weak in anyway. I do notice that I am colder than normal on the HCG phase of this program. I have lost 6 lbs. of body fat and even gained 1.5 lbs of muscle according to our In body 720 body composition scanner.
I am excited to go through for one more week and then to transition into phase III of the HCG Diet Protocol where I will stick with the phase III food list for 3 weeks. This has been an exceptional way to cleanse my body. I feel super clean and alive Although my lifestyle and diet were healthy before I think I will leave out all grains 95% of the time and focus on lean meats, non-starchy veggies and low sugar fruits and lots of water.
