Hello lovely hCGers. This interview is part of what is now a plethora of weight loss success stories with real everyday women (and men! There’s a few dude interviews in there) who have used either hCG injections or drops with the hCG diet protocol to lose between 20 and 150 lbs. You can see the current episodes available here.
Bridgette’s Basic Stats:
Starting weight: 153lbs
Current Weight:: 135 lbs.
Total weight loss: 18 lbs
Starting Size: Tight Size 8
HCG got her to: Size 4/6
Bridgette works with an hCG health clinic, SaJune Institute for Restorative and Regenerative Medicine in Orlando, Florida. She had been working with patients doing the hCG for almost 3 years before she tried doing the hCG. She knew the protocol very well and she coach the patients weekly. She did 2 short rounds. First round she used sublingual hCG and the second round she did the injections.
Their clinic does hormone level testings to help patients address the issue before doing the hCG protocol.
Things that can help in adrenal fatigue:
Adrenal Supplements – they have a product called Adrenal Forte which is all herbs.
Mind-Body Stress Reduction – Restorative yoga program or deep breathing everyday can help.
She said that if your adrenals are moderately depleted then that’s still okay but if your adrenals are really depleted what they see is, you’ll still lose on hCG no matter what but you might not lose as fast and you won’t keep it off just easily. So you’ll lose it but when you’re on maintenance the weight comes back up slowly.
One very intriguing thing Bridgette shared is that hCG promotes testosterone production that’s why people retain their muscle mass but people actually gain muscles if they do a higher calorie protocol and some light resistance training during the program. But if you’re on the 500 calories you don’t want to do that This is just something she discovered based on seeing so many patient go through the program.
- Chicken Broth
Cook the cauliflower in chicken broth, add some salt and pepper to taste then blender it. Add more water as needed.
For variety you can also add your shrimp to the soup after you blender it.
She said she did P3 for 6 weeks. Gradually increasing calories and introducing vegetable with higher carb count on Week 4, like squashes.
She also did a Protein Day, just like Steak Day but you can eat any protein. She did say that it seems steak is better for her than other proteins.
Now in Phase 4
Bridgette did intermittent fasting and she’s now on a ketogenic diet and doing HIIT workouts.
