HCG diet update

Well today starts my 3rd day of my diet, but really the first day of low calories.The last 2 days I was able to eat whatever I wanted. It was called the Gorging days. Of course I found it hard to do since I never eat the types of foods suggested to me to eat. Lucky the Fair was going on and I indulged in some yummy jalapeno sausage on a bun both nights. I also had my favorite Frappe at Starbucks like 3 times. I knew it would be a while before I would get another. I usually get it low fat, but got them full fat. Forgot how yummy they were with all the fat. It's amazing how your mind goes crazy when your doctor says eat whatever your heart desires for 2 days. I have not been able to do that in over a year. There were so many thoughts that I think I overwhelmed myself and ended up not eating the things I desired most. Like a juicy hamburger. I have not had that in so long, I forgot what it taste like. Oh well. Probably better I not know. So I am sure you are wondering what this diet is about. It's called the HCG diet. It's really a cleanse diet that removes all the toxins from the body. You take this HCG hormone for 23 days. You eat very low calories making sure you eat no sugar, bad carbs, forcing your body to get its needed calories and energy from the stored fat in your fat cells. Then after 23 days you start to add back foods and more calories a little at a time for 3 weeks still not eating sugar, starches, and simple carbs. After that 3 weeks you eat a diet of about 1200 calories. Then you can do it again, same steps until you reach desired weight. I will probably be on this journey for a while as my doctor wants me to drop about 80 pounds. I would never suggest doing this without doctor. There are so many things to watch for and a lot of supplements you must take while being on such low calories. Oh and you have to drink lots of water. Like 6 to 8 16 oz bottles a day so that you can rid the body of toxins and fat. Anyway, go search for HCG diet and read. You can order it from the Internet, but I suggest going to your doctor. Especially if you have any other health issues. As for me, my main focus is getting my blood sugar set back to normal and reset my metabolism so that weight loss will be easier. I am currently in a size 16 and would like to wear size 10 to 12. So blood sugar nomal and size 10/12 are my goals. Really hoping it works.

Today I had

Breakfast-Green Tea and my Reds(a vitamin supplement drink mixed with water)
Lunch- tuna salad with grated cabbage
Dinner- 3.5 oz of steak (boy have I Been eating high on the hog over the years) slaw salad
Before bed I had another glass of my reds.
Total calories=360---I fell short about 140 calories. Must do better tomorrow.
Water=6 bottles=96 oz.
How do I feel?? A little hungry going to bed, but not going to eat cause checked my blood sugar and it was only 102. Lowest it's been in a long time. I usually do not have problems controlling it during the day when I am active, but at night and mornings is when it goes up. Usually wake up around 140 in morning. Praying it will be much lower in the morning. Will keep you posted on my progress.
