Do you have between 60 and 100 lbs to lose?
Here are 16 ladies and gents who were in the same boat a you. Some of these ladies were “done” with their hCG weight loss journey when I interviewed them, and some were still on their journey partway through. Some used hCG injections (you can purchase those here), some used drops.
I’m going to share a pointer that I shared with the 100+ lbs interviews post peeps, because it applies to you to:
1 Pointer for Sanity During A 60-100 Lb Weight Loss Journey
You will find that initially, your weight loss average – how much you lose during 1 round, may be pretty high. Some of you ladies MAY even have that notorious 1lb/day weight loss that circulates online a lot – the 40lbs in 40 days type deal. Many of you still may not, but it’s definitely possible.
But this number WILL go down as you get smaller. And there is nothing wrong with you or you body when this happens. It’s a simple matter of science really – when you are a smaller person, you actually have a lower metabolism in general naturally just by way of weighing less. This means you burn less calories at rest than before. Additionally, think of this: if you lost 35 lbs in one round whiled weighing 250lbs to start, that’s 16% of your bodyweight you lost. But if you lose another 35 lbs in a round, with a starting weight of say 170 lbs this time, that would actually be 20% of your total bodyweight you lost – logically it doesn’t make sense to lose a larger percentage of bodyweight as you get smaller. Does this make sense? That same 35 lbs is a larger amount technically coming off a smaller body than a larger body. If you lost the same 16% of your bodyweight, that would be 27 lbs this time – and like I said you likely won’t even continue to lose the same percentage of bodyweight but less – if you lost say, 13% of your bodyweight at 170 lbs ,that would be 22 lbs.
Once you get into the 40 lb weight loss range, your typical weight loss ratio will usually be more in the .5lb/per day range (which would equate to more like 20 lbs in 40 days)
I hope that makes sense.
My point is, it’s totally normal for your total weight loss each round to gradually go down, this is GOING to happen and I’m warning you now so that you won’t think you’re doing something wrong and get all bummed out. You are doing JUST fine girl.
On with the interviews!

She actually had her stomach stapled in 1997 after having gained a considerable amount of weight after her children were born. She did very well with weight loss and maintained for 3 years until she had a hysterectomy in 2000 and within a month, her weight gain began all over again. On this interview, she shared some great tips and tricks for staying sane on P2.

Men on hCG: 65lbs Gone in 8 Weeks
James lost 65 lbs in 1 round of 8 weeks with hCG injection. He’s 53 and was at his heaviest at 485lbs before. For any of you who think it’s impossible for a large grown man to be comfortable on a 500 calorie diet, perhaps James’ input will help you re-think that. The hCG hormone does not appear to be a placebo in light of user feedback like James, who at 6’3″, with a very active job, can take 200 IU of hCG a day and live on a 500 calorie daily diet for 8 full weeks, without hunger comfortably.
256 lbs down to 186 lbs with 3 rounds of hCG Injections and Crossfit

She saw and was very aware of the complications that can occur with bariatric surgery like gastric bypass. When the tables turned and she was pondering bypass surgery herself, her friend who was a nurse practitioner responsible for follow up care of bariatric patients suggested she compare the pros and cons of surgery vs. the hCG protocol.

Losing 74lbs with the hCG Diet despite Fibromyalgia
Linita lost 74 lbs with hCG. She also found the hCG to improve her fibromyalgia symptoms. She had hysterectomy years ago and she’s on hormone replacement. There have been a few times however that she has had to “catch” weight gain before it got too out of hand and do correction rounds. Usually, she would find herself about 10 lbs higher after the holiday months and do a correction round in the early part of each year.
Her weight has pretty much been between 142-152 most of the past years until she ended up having a surgery- a tummy tuck. As many women know, excess skin can be an issue after major weight loss. One point of note is that she found the hCG to improve her fibromyalgia symptoms.

Laurie found that as she got to the point where she had very little weight left to lose, she needed to increase her calories above and beyond the 500 calories. There’s a lot to learn from Laurie and she also has her own very informative YouTube channel where she vlog her hCG journey.
Jeana lost 65 lbs with prescription (RX) hCG injections. She said that she started feeling uncomfortable being overweight and she was concerned how her daughter will feel having an overweight mom so she started doing the hCG. She lost 65 lbs in 5.5 months, 2-month break included.
