My HCG Journey – A Success
The HCG diet has been an absolute miracle for me, after 5 years of so many diets and exercise regimes with no success as my body just couldn’t let go of the fat. My thyroid was found to be very low and the medication didn’t help weight loss. I was desperate and came across the Cabot Clinic and reading about the HCG program, sounded too good to be true so I embarked on the 3-week program with their nutritionist, who supported me throughout.
The first week was tough, as detox symptoms presented: headaches, feeling lightheaded and body aches; but still, the HCG program mentally gave me the clarity to get through it without giving in.
I lost 5 kilograms in the first week and I was never hungry or tired. The next couple of weeks were enjoyable. I was feeling great with nearly daily weight losses. I also gained a huge amount of self-control and discipline when it came to food. I was still cooking 4 + times a day for my son and also wanting to create and cook more than I ever have for my family without feeling tempted.
An amazement to me is not having a headache for 5 weeks while being on such a restricted diet 🙂
After the 3 weeks, I continued to do the 40 days for maximum loss and benefits. The last 3 weeks were harder as I struggled with the boredom of eating the same thing. I had quite a few stalls that lasted up to 4 days but it worked itself out.
I am now at my goal weight and overall lost 12 kgs. I am so happy and I have not felt healthier 🙂
