1 quart water
1.5 droppers of sweetleaf flavored stevia (grape is yum!)
A few shakes Trader Joes Organic Stevia Extract
So far my omron body fat monitor shows that I’ve lost 11 lbs of fat in 22 days. My hydrostatic body fat test that I took after this round corroborates my results.
As some of you may know, I am writing these blog posts far after the fact when I did these vlogs- it’s been almost a year since this particular vlog. It has been really interesting for me to back and watch all my own old vlogs actually- it’s interesting to me how much energy I had this particular round and how good I felt- the fact that I was eating no fruit or grissini whatsoever and having no cravings and losing so much weight and so much of that weight being fat is really striking. And that this particular round was the easiest one I ever experienced. It makes me want to remove fruits on my next p2 again.

Hi! I think you’ve alluded to this in subsequent posts but how do you feel about post hcg diet carb sensitivity when eliminating the fruits entirely from p2. For reference, I almost never eat fruit in my normal diet of low carb, no sugar, high fat. About twice a week (not during the hcg diet tho!) i’ll have some healthy carbs like sweet potatoes (similar to a cyclical keto diet) and that seems to do me well. Sooooo i’m Just wondering since i’m not getting any carbs from sweet potatoes and I continue to not eat the fruit while on p2, if I might develop some additional carb sensitivity. Meaning my body won’t process it as well on p4 and I’ll gain weight because of it. I hope that makes sense!
That is a very good question- I have found that our bodies seem to “get sensitive to” whatever we avoid for awhile but then if we reintroduce it gradually we become readjusted- so for instance, I ate not fruits or melba at all on a couple rounds, however, these days in P4, I eat a moderate carb diet- I have gluten free bread 3 slices every single day, I have corn tortillas, etc- so to me, initial sensitivity to something is not an indication of some permanent negative change, rather a need to readjust your body to the new thing you want to pursue, if that makes sense. so I feel you can easily do this after hCG as I did. I hope that makes sense!
Thank you! Makes perfect sense!
