Wow....I don't know you or your situation, however, you should be eating a lot more calories than you are. Fitday offers recommendations on the amount of calories you need to eat daily to achieve your goal weight. Have you check it out? How are your energy levels?

I am suprised as well which is why I posted the question.

Thanks,
there is your problem. You are not following the HGC diet to the "T". You should not be cheating at all, and follow the HCG diet. IMO nobody should do HCG if they don't plan on following it to the "T". I would get off the drops or shot, which ever you are doing, until you are ready to commit to it 110%.

Believe it or not, he's shouldn't be eating more calories with HCG. He should limit to 500 cals, and eat/drink ONLY what's allowed. I know plenty of people that did HCG with great success but they followed the plan and didn't deviate any.

That diet sounds extremely dubious to me, and a quick google found reputable articles confirming my suspicions. It's not done at all well in research, the FDA doesn't like it, and it can cause delightful problems such as gallstones. By the way, I'm 4'11, 135 lb and extremely sedentary, and I'm eating twice as many calories as you are. For someone of my height, that's a relatively conservative approach to calorie restriction. I've known a number of people try extreme dieting, and they tend to get one of the following results:

1) Weight loss followed by weight gain, typically more weight than they lost. My mother did this for her wedding, looked a bit slimmer on the day, and a lot heavier than before not long afterwards.

2) No appreciable weight loss but a severely messed up psyche and eating routine ("if I'm eating this little and not losing weight, I must be doing something wrong!"). This happened to me accidentally a few years back when I was too ill to cook, largely bedbound due to disability, and not at that time getting any help from social services. I ended up putting on weight despite not eating remotely enough, getting very ill indeed, and being told by my GP that it had messed up my metabolism.

3) Anorexia or bulumia. A friend's flatmate has been in and out of hospital for anorexia recently and we don't think she has long left to live. Another friend has had anorexia since childhood, he was hospitalised for it at the age of eight, and he is a very unwell chap.

I realise that you're very anxious to lose weight, but there are no quick fixes which really work long term, and there's a reason why diet forums are full of people aiming for 1-2lb per week chanting, "Slow and steady wins the race".

Best of luck, it sounds like a very frustrating situation.

HGC seems to be a hot button topic so I'm no longer discussing it.

Personally, I'll continue to eat 1500 to 1700 (mostly) good calories a day, do a modest amount of exercise and track it all on FitDay and keep losing weight (144 documented pounds off since June 19th) w/o any "diet".

Regards,
Michael

i agree 500 calaries is way low

im 238 pounds and currently av 1600 calories a day - weighing everything very acuratley - running 30 minutes every morning 5 days and dumbells for 30 minutes 3 days weeks - (decided on low reps heavy weights as this seems to make me sweat more and works me harder)

i feel very week on 1600 cal and am unsure should i be having more god knows how you exercise the way you do on 500 cals
