HCG R3- No sugar/carb Loading
Ever the experimenter, I experiment not simply for the sake of doing it, but I experiment when my life experiences seem to necessitate it. In this new experiment, I chose a plan of action that would accomplish a two-fold goal: get rid of my sugar addiction again, prepare my body to enter ketosis as quickly as possible to hopefully bring about greater fat loss and less muscle loss on hcg.
About nine days prior to starting my load for Round 3 of HCG Injections, I started a high-fat, super low carb diet (almost no carb really). We’re talking steak and bacon and grass fed burger patties all day. Why nine days? No reason really. Just wanted it to be long enough to clear carbs from my system and to hopefully get through any period of sugar withdrawal and the resulting torturous cravings that I knew could possibly occur. But guess what? From my research, eating high fats is supposed to help with cravings, and indeed it did. Getting off sugar was the easiest it’s ever been for me! I removed ALL sugars including fruits and even most vegetables. This isn’t something I necessarily suggest you do long term, but it was for a purpose- my re-addiction to sugar was no joke and I needed to find a way to fix it before I started the protocol or I knew that I would fail again. Following the 9 days of the high-fat almost no carb diet, I started loading for this weight loss protocol.
This time my loading strategy for HCG was different as well. I realized that sugar is no longer a safe thing for me to consume, so I chose to load low carb as well. At the point that I did this, almost a whole year ago now, I didn’t know of anyone else who had tried this. I didn’t even eat any fruit while loading. Once again, all bacon, steak and grass fed burger patty type stuff. I may have had a few nuts in there.
Stayed tuned for the next blog post to see the results of my low carb loading? Did I get into Ketosis quicker? You shall see…
