To some people it is quite controversial, so I refrained from saying anything on fb to avoid the criticism.
Yes, it is a 500 calorie diet.
No, I didn't feel awful every day. In fact, I felt wonderful.
No, I was never starving. The HCG regulates your body making you use up calories that are already stored in your body, or something.
I know that if I would have been more faithful to the diet I would have seen greater results, but as of today, I have lost 21 pounds. For now, my goal is to keep the weight off.
I am pretty sure that I will make another go-round on the diet. The thing that I struggled most with was all the summertime activities. Parties, weddings, camping, stuff like that! So I am going to take the rest of the summer off and start again after Labor Day.
