The Beautiful thing about the HCG Diet


The HCG Diet holds within it a tremendous amount of learning ~ learning about our own relationship with food; learning about the relationship we have as a society with food; learning about our own psychological and physiological needs for food and truly how different they are.  I have researched this topic for years. I have written a book and article after article on the HCG Diet Protocol.  Going THROUGH  the process has been the real GEM for me.  More learning in the last 3 weeks than in all my years of research combined. I love the HCG Diet Program at The Natural Path Portland even more than ever.


How I subjectively feel on the HCG Diet as I come into my third week


I feel AMAZING!!!!  I feel CLEAN!!  I feel LIGHT!!  I feel i ncontrol of what I am eating. I am listening to my body and eating ... WHEN I AM HUNGRY.  When I get hungry, I choose a lean protein and a vegetable and I enjoy them.  I am making such healthy choices when I could easily go for something not so vital.  In my house, we have really healthy food.  If I were to "snack" at my house it would be a piece of Udi's gluten free cinnamon raisin bread with almond butter.  Even those "healthy" snack foods weigh me down!


I hasve been sleeping great.  One thing I have noticed is that my body does feel cold.  It is cold outside and I live in an old house so perhaps it is just plain cold around me:)


The Gems I will Take with Me from the HCG Diet


Eating this simply for 3 weeks has been amazing.  I will continue to eat this way with a bit bigger portion sizes come phase III.  I will eat less nut butters than I used to and I will keep grains pretty much out of my diet 98%.  I do know what foods cause inflammation in the human body and I personally know nuts and grains are not the best choice for me personally.

I look forward to slowly adding things in come phase III and noticing how they make me feel.  I have loved eating simply and it is even more evidence for me that this is how my physiological/genetic body would like to eat. 


I am beyond grateful that I have chosen to put myself through this process.
