I have had this vest for about 16 years now. While I purchase most of my clothing from thrift stores because I’m just frugal like that (INC blouse for $6 at goodwill? oh yeah, it’s mine), this vest was purchased in the mall for over $100- and you know what? It was worth every stinkin’ penny. It has been my favorite piece of clothing all these years. Obviously I couldn’t wear it for at least the last 7 years. I put it on this day, vlcd 20 of my 4th round of HCG Injections and guess what? I buttoned the entire vest up. I remember trying it on a couple years ago as I went through all my “too small” clothes and there was at least a 7 inch gap across my chest that the vest wouldn’t go across. At that time I couldn’t fathom to myself how I could have been so small at one time. And this day I buttoned it up! Now, today October 14 2012, as I finish up Round 5, this vest fits even more comfortably- anywhere below the bust line the vest is actually a little on the loose side, making it comfortable to sit down in too, not just stand in (kind of a plus since most events involve some sitting).
Also….I like my legs now. I’ve NEVER liked my legs. Finally, at 31 years of age, I like my legs. I am so amazed at how much this diet plan really does create a wonderful re-shaping action of your body. No one knows the shape of my legs more intimately than I do, and I can tell you they are having the best shapeliness in their whole life on this planet, even when I used to weigh less than I do now. Okay, enough about me. Let’s move on to something that might actually help you shall we?
Dosing and hCG:
I had a point a few days before VLCD 20 that I experienced some strong actual hunger- I was very preoccupied with the urgent need to eat all day. I ended up mini-loaded that night- just from dinner on about 7pm-10pm- I just ate whatever I felt like eating. My blood sugar with the protocol foods was not getting high enough- kept hovering around 75-80 and I feel best if my blood sugar is 90-100. Even after mini-loading, the following day I again felt very preoccupied with the need to eat- very hungry indeed.
In retrospect I needed a smaller dose. I had been injecting 150iu’s, and I dropped it to 125iu’s- immediately when I did that I felt so much better- the difference was drastic- the day I started injecting 125iu’s I didn’t even feel the need to eat anything until like 2pm. So for all those out there who experience abnormal hunger at different points through the protocol, always look at your dose of the hormone as a possible thing to tweak. As of now, as I close Round 5 (this vlog was from Round 4), I took 125iu for the entire round with great success and almost no hunger the whole round.
I really don’t recommend mini-loading- it would be better to eat more P2 protocol foods until you figure out why you are feeling abnormally hungry, most likely all you need is a new batch of the hormone or a different dose. I have found mini-loading to simply be a waste of time on the protocol- I do not think it causes extra fat loss on the diet, I think it just slows you down.
