Embarking on my HCG Diet Adventure
by Dr. Cara Phillipo N.D.
YES! I am finally going to put myself through the HCG Diet and I am excited about it. I have been leading participants through our medically supervised HCG Diet program now for almost 6 years. Facilitating this program as a medical professinal is an absolute joy for me and I am inspired by my patients and in awe of how this HCG Diet program works day after day.
Since I have been pregnant or breast feeding for over 5 years now; I have not been able to partake in this HCG Weight Loss program. I am by no means over weight but would not mind losing about 10 lbs. OK ... I know it is "vanity weight" but what the heck ... it will feel good. One thing I have learned from observing the HCG Diet in action over and over agan is that it is very SAFE!! My time has come and here we go. I will be sharing my experiences with you as I get started.
My "Loading Days" experience on the HCG Diet
I am really not a "foodie" so the loading days were actually something that I had to focus on. I have heard of this same experience from many of my patients. Others, take the HCG Diet loading days as a license to eat and have no problem putting the food back. I chose to be sure I had a tablespoon of nut butter here and there through the weekend as well as some avocado. I indulged on a pixie retreat raw vanilla mousse. By the second day (today) I really was not hungry at all. I just finished off a quart of kale salad with cranberries, hazelnuts and squash. This will be truly the food I will miss the most as I set sail into phase II of the HCG Diet tomorrow.
Preparing for the Phase II of the HCG Diet which begins Tomorrow
I have given some mental thought to what these next 21 days might be like for me. I do not anticiapte it will be much of a challenge. With my two little ones and our busy practice I barely find time to eat. I do find myself nibbling here and there as I prepare my children their meals. I enjoy a little healthy snack in the evening. I see where some behavioral changes are in order for me. I plan to listen to my body and if I need to eat ... I will have a little extra protein.
I have asked myself these questions:
I am excited to see what this process is truly like. I have written books about the HCG Diet and learned and learned and learned all I could (and still I am learning) about the program. I have facilictated nearly 1000 people through the HCG Diet for weight loss and now it is my turn.
I am so excited to be taking on the challenge of the HCG Diet! Stay tuned for more updates as my HCG Diet journey continues.
Many Blessings to ALL,
