Current Weight/Fitness Stats
It’s been 108 days since the end of Round 4 of HCG Injections.
Still crossfitting 3-4 days a week. Love it. JUST. LOVE IT.
I mention this because my LIW (last injection weight) is 126.6, but since I’ve been trying to build muscle with crossfit, I’m currently 132. That’s 5.5 pounds over my LIW. The neat thing is that since this vlog, I had a hydrostatic body fat test done, and it turns out 5 lbs was muscle and only ½ lb was fat- I did better than I gave myself credit for!
Doing something pro-active for your body, even after hCG
I had what I called more “dietary indiscretions” during this p4 than usual, so that’s why I was concerned that a larger percentage of the weight gain was fat, but as it turns out I was wrong (thankfully). I think this goes a long way in showing that continuing to do something progressive for your body after Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (like crossfit!) is a great way to help your body continue to grow while not gaining “weight” in the sense of fat.
I’ve been able to eat a surplus of calories all this time in a way that my body then used almost all of it to build muscle not fat. Pretty cool huh? I love being able to be so free with my calorie intake, and all I have to do to enjoy this is go to crossfit 3-4 times a week for an hour each time. 3 hours a week guys! That’s it. And I can eat calories freely without counting (and I don’t eat like a bird, I promise you that).
hCG Diet Round 5 coming soon
Round 5 of the diet will be starting in the near future. Why you may ask? Am I not “done”? My goals in regards to my body are a little unique in that I desire to reach a specific type of body composition. I’m trying to increase my muscle mass and lower my fat mass, over time, to have a well sculpted, lean body with a fairly low body fat percentage.
My bodyfat percent was at 23.9% at my last hydrostatic body fat test at the end of Round 4. But being that I go to crossfit, there are women there who look fantastic to me with much lower body fat percentages. As an example, one of the trainers at my crossfit gym is a young woman of about 23 who is 10% body fat by hydrostatic. I don’t necessarily hope to get that low, but 15% would be pretty neat. I know it won’t happen over night, even with the diet, so that is why my body has become a little “project” of sorts- a fun thing to gradually work on that someday might be in a more “done” state.
To this end, I am cycling crossfit (4-6 months at a time or more) with rounds of the protocol (3-6 weeks).
I’m getting quite muscular with crossfit, but my goal is not simply to be strong. I want to be both strong and lean at the same time. This requires that I lose more fat. After several months of crossfit I can feel myself starting to feel more “thick” all over, and then I know it’s time to do my next cycle and shed some more fat.
Food Allergy Test
Lastly, I also had a food allergy test that showed that I’m allergic to a number of foods that I eat, and in addition, quite a few foods on the original Dr. Simeons protocol. I will be experimenting with not eating the foods I’m allergic to on my next round to see if this gives me better fat losses.
