I had to order the miracle noodles. The only place I could find them was on-line. On those days that you are really hungry, they can make a big difference. I have done the injections. The first round I did injections. Very expensive. $500 for 40 days. On my second round I got a discount for returning, still very expensive and they didn't seem to work that time. A woman I work with had ordered the drops on-line. I did that the next go around. They worked even better than the shots. Much more affordable. I am also interested in the maintenance phase. My body is very sensitive now to carbs, sugars. If I eat any, I will gain weight.

On another forum that I'm on many of us do the Leptin Reset for phase 3, and we stabilize like a rock or keep on losing very very slowly. It was designed by Dr. Jack Kurse (google him for his website) and you can read it online. Although, be warned, he's a doctor and there's a lot of science talk!

Basically the Leptin Reset goes something like this: for 6 to 8 weeks:
BAB = Big Ass Breakfast within 30 minutes of rising. Eat 50 to 75 protein grams for breakfast. That is a huge protein filled breakfast! Not easy to do!
Eat 30 to 50 grams of healthy carbs (no sugars, no grains, no lactose)
NO snacking at all between meals.
Eat 2 to 3 meals per day, spaced 4 to 5 hours apart. Last meal is finished minimum 3 hours before bed.
Sleep 8 to 10 hours per night.

What most of us are experiencing is that the BAB shuts off our hunger for the rest of the day. We eat a normal size dinner, some eat a light lunch, and we're just not hungry for more than that. It's amazing, because prior to doing this I fought the urge to snack at night. I don't even think about it when I start the day with BAB. About half of us trying it are losing 1 to 2 lbs per week without trying, the other half are stabilizing at LIW.

Default Started HCG Diet today

OK, so I know it's super controversial and not the "right way" to lose weight, but it is what it is. I am so committed to losing this that I am even going to stay sober on NYE tomorrow night, even though I spent a small fortune on a ticket out. I figured I would share my "journey" here...

I had to binge for the last 2 days and I took that pretty seriously as well. My weight this morning was 158.5 - higher than it's ever been, not counting after I had my 2 kids. I feel disgusting, puffy, fat, and thick.

Not looking forward to all the chicken breast in my future - the diet is pretty strict and only certain meats are allowed. Of them all, I only eat the chicken

I will keep updating you all. Please don't berate me for trying this...I gained 75 lbs with my 2nd pregnancy and lost it all by being healthy and exercising. I get it. I don't need a lecture. Thanks!!

I am doing the drops that I bought online..not injections. The bottle was $75 or something. My doctor has no pity for me and told me to follow a 1,400 cal/day diet; there was no way she was going to prescribe me anything other than common sense. Well, I will say that so far it's hard to tell - I drank a ton of wine last night as part of my last hurrah, which meant I slept terribly - so I just feel dragged out and tired still. I am going to be eating my lunch of salad greens, chicken breast, and squeezed lemon shortly :\

Mike, your post about your girlfriend makes me thrilled. I am still a bit skeptical, so hearing that it worked for a real person is awesome. I just want the weight gone FAST. I am probably a very solid size 10 now, and look a thousand times better in my size 4 jeans...that haven't fit right in 2 years. Fingers crossed!!!

One more thing - I only eat chicken breast. Can other proteins be used (beans, nuts, etc.?) The instructions say that the diet has to be followed religiously.

HCG was something I was vaguely considering for a while but, being vegan, I was immediately turned off by it. I did some research and found alternate protocols for veg*ns to follow. They tend to suggest either protein shakes, tofu, or soy patties (low-calorie/low-carb, of course) as alternate protein sources.
I know you're not veg*n, but perhaps you could look into using chicken along with alternatives from the veg*n-friendly protocol. There's a decent amount of information on this--Google is your friend here.
