I just finished the 500 calorie portion of the HCG Diet. I got hungry. The first week was the worst, and then it became easier. I had to spread my meals out over the day. Good results in a very short time. It does work.
I hesitated to post for fear of annoying you, but since no one else has stepped up....
What exactly do you want to hear? Probably not the obvious, that you need to either make a commitment to follow through with your eating plan, scrap it and find another plan that is easier to follow, or give up entirely and maybe try again another time.
I'd really like to see you succeed in losing weight, but without the commitment, it's just not going to happen. I've been there, done that many, many times.
If there's anything specific we can do to help, please ask.

I agree with Michael. If you are not going to follow the protocol to the letter then you need to get off HCG, period. What kind of new recipes have you come up with? I ask b/c there's not much you can do to make a recipe since you are so limited with your choices, unless you do something like mix a few ounces of boneless skiness grilled chicken breast with broccoli and add a dash of low sodium soy sauce and pretend it's chinese food...
When you say you are on your 2nd day, are you talking about the 2nd day of the "loading phase" or the real diet? Sounds to me like when you get off of work you should try to occupy your time instead of relaxing, thinking about food.
I am curious to see if anyone else has tried the hcg. I have been doing it on and off for about a year now. I lost 30lbs, but have trouble maintaining that. I gain 10lbs. and then turn around and lose that same 10lbs. I would like to progress past that point. Does anyone have maintenance tips for after HCG?
There are many threads on FD about hcg. It always seems to be a controversial subject as it has many believers and nonbelievers. I'm a believer I've seen personally change people in unbelievable ways when they follow the plan. Just like with everything, it takes dedication.
