Weight Loss Roller Coaster

Posted by

If you are like me, weight loss has been a constant roller coaster. I would lose weight and be able to keep it off, but it would slowly creep back on. Maybe I was stressed or just not taking care of myself.

So, like almost any other girls out there, I looked into any diet that was popular at the time. The South Beach diet, Atkins, a myriad of home work out videos and I was still looking for a way to lose weight and keep the weight off. I finally heard about the hCG diet and thought I would give it a try.

First, I spent time researching the diet and the reasons behind why it worked. All of the information I read said that I could lose a pound to a pound and a half each day! The diet is based on information from a British researched named Dr. A. Simeons who noticed that patients who were given hCG would often become less hungry and still maintain a healthy energy level. This caused weight loss and through trial and error, Dr. Simeons developed a protocol that included a low calorie diet and a phase to stabilize the weight once the goal weight had been reached.

I followed the 21 day diet and lost 26 pounds. The most common questions I got were if I was hungry and if there were other side effects. While there were times that I was hungry, I tried to have something to do to keep busy – taking a walk, going to a movie, window shopping, anything to keep myself occupied!

The only other side effects I experienced were occasional headaches. I made sure to up my water intake and get some more rest.

Our Amino Acid drops are formulated to work the same as the hCG drops with high potency ingredients that will help you lose weight and feel great!

I also always planned my meals. The days that I had skimped on meal planning were the days that I was most tempted to cheat. Keeping a diary of meals, caloric intake, weight, and any symptoms that you may experience will help you stay on track.

The obvious question still looms – does the weight stay off? For me, most of it has. I will admit I have gained back about 10 pounds. I attribute it to working full time at a desk job and completing a Master’s degree. Lots of time spent sitting, reading, and typing term papers. Overall, I feel like I kept up with healthy eating habits. I try to eat mostly protein and vegetables and I eat small portions often through my day. My biggest downfall is soda – I feel like I need it to help keep me awake enough to read and type papers late into the night

Once I finish my degree, my goal is to focus on my body again (the past 2 years has been a focus on my mind and career). I would love to kick my soda habit, go to yoga classes, and learn to meditate. Setting simple goals helps me to stay motivated and moving in a forward direction.

As you focus on your goals, be gentle with yourself, but expect great things!
