I'm on round 2 of the HCG diet. I can't believe how freaking easy it is to lose weight on this diet. This time around, it is barely a struggle to stay on the food protocol. I have energy again and it's nice to wake up every morning to a weight loss.
When I started up again, I was back to about 139/140. I've lost 8 pounds from that so far, most of it being water weight probably.
I'm experimenting with some new recipes. I converted a turkey burger recipe into a chicken burger recipe which is very decent and a nice change to grilled chicken or ground beef.
I bought some flounder and I definitely like the taste more than tilapia sometimes. Tilapia just got boring for me.
I'm been using ground grissini mixed w/ italian spices to substitute as breadcrumbs and I make shrimp parm (without the parm) out of it. Quite tasty. I might try mixing some of the breadcrumbs with a fish-friendly spice mix and try to oven fry the fish.
I don't really drink water that much, oh well. I'm a little liberal with my meat (100-125 g)and grissini (sometimes 3/day), and I don't eat that many vegetables, but I have no negative impact thus far and I don't anticipate any either.
Even stickin it is nothing for me. I used to get all freaked out and nervous and I used to imagine that it hurt. It doesn't. It's so fucking easy now. I guess if you just do it enough it's like second nature.
This time is much easier I think, since I'm so much closer to my goal, I'm not getting as frustrated. It's not the end of the world to be stuck on this diet for 6 weeks. I wish more people would be open to it, as it could really help some people who are REALLY struggling. I'm so glad that I found this diet and that I've seen it help people in my life that I care about.
