That Was Just Dumb

3 parties in the last week. Who the heck is dumb enough to try to diet between Thanksgiving and Christmas? I’ll try this again with everyone else after New Years!

Cronometer Screen Shot

I’m not hungry, so fat loading on the dozen oatmeal and raisin cookies last night was a good idea. (Aren’t cookies always a good idea?) My total caloric intake for today was 910 calories, and the extra exercise lowered the net calories to 429 for the day. Here’s a partial screen shot from Cronometer.com.   …

Time To Diet Again

It’s been a year since I did the last diet, and I’ve gained about 15 lbs over what I weighed at the beginning of the year. So, I broke out the bottle of HCG and the Tony Little Gazelle, and I’m ready to go. LOL The tools I use to keep track of everything, are …

I Cheated The HCG Diet and Won!

Oh yeah baby, I just figured out how to really make this diet work. You know how I keep complaining about loading for three days so that there’s fat in your blood and you then don’t get hungry, and how I loaded but then didn’t do the diet, and I then gained weight? well I …

Low Carb is Working

The low carb is working. I’m down 8 lbs in the last couple of weeks, and that includes one bad weekend that included donuts, potatoes, ice cream and frosted flakes… Luckily, not at the same time. While the low carb diet doesn’t let me lose as fast as the HCG diet does, and I’m not …

HCG vs. Low Carb

I just can’t do it… I keep trying, but I’m having a really hard time staying with HCG right now, even though the couple of days I lasted dropped me 4 lbs. I don’t know if I need to add some multi-vitamins, or what, but I’m craving foods that aren’t on the diet, and that …

HCG Diet: Don’ts

I like taking the HCG drops because they seem to work well with my testosterone and thyroid meds and also seem to make by  insulin work better. Ever since I did the HCG diet in October/November of 2010, my insulin needs are way down. But, I decided a couple of weeks ago that I would …

Eating Fiber Lowers My Blood Sugars

I’ve been experimenting lately with oatmeal and beans. Of course I’m not eating them together, since I can’t even imagine that recipe…  LOL While on the surface oatmeal and beans both have a ton of carbs, when I eat them I don’t get the huge carb rush you’d expect. According to the second stage HCG …

HCG Diet Before and After Pictures

I said I’d post some before and after pictures from the HCG diet, so here they are. And yeah, I know I looked happier in the first picture, but that’s because the cup had vodka and diet coke in it. The second diet picture was after a long day at work. My doctor’s nurse told …

Side Note on HCG

Just a side note. The HCG constipates the heck out of me, but it really seems to help with my insulin uptake. Does anyone else notice that they need less insulin when taking HCG, even if they’re not dieting? I started taking it again during the 2 days prior to my weekly testosterone shot, because …
