Top HCG Questions
A youtube viewer wrote and asked some great questions.
I thought it would be good to post the assortment of questions and my answers because this is just about the top most asked questions when someone is getting ready to start HCG.
“I’m getting ready to begin my HCG journey. I’m so excited, yet at the same time I’m scared! Between your Loseit4ever channel, Mamaclok, and HCG forums, I’m getting a lot of information, and becoming more assured that I’m doing the right thing for my health.”
Q-Can I continue to take my blood pressure and water pill meds while on HCG?
MY ANSWER – If these are prescriptions your doctor has you on you should not go off of them unless the doctor tells you it is ok.
When on protocol you should be drinking a lot of water which will also help you with your releases (2 quart minimum). Once your body “gets” that you will be drinking more water your body won’t try to be a “camel” and retain the water.
Q- I also take Melatonin to help with sleep.
MY Answer — I think Melatonin is good and fine while on HCG.
Q – And would you recommend a supplement for energy?
MY Answer — Many HCGers take B12. I take a lot of different supplements (Not diet pills) that also give my energy. Yerba Mate Tea is also good. But what I want to be sure is understood is that when on proper HCG the abnormal fat stores are being burned. Too many people only look at the 500 cal consumption and worry they will be weak but you won’t be. I wasn’t weak, lightheaded, none of that during my rounds.
Q-What do you recommend is best to eat during load days? I see Mamaclok from youtube ate donuts, but are there recommended “gorge” foods?
My Answer — Since that vlog I think Karen would agree better “gorge” choices are good fats. One successful HCGer loves to eat a big bowl of guacamole. I make sure I eat foods that I think I will “miss” once I’m on protocol. Mexican food and even though it has sugar, ice cream which is also high fat so the fat will slow the absorption rate of the sugar into your system. Other HCGers like to eat fatty meats as well. I just learned that finishing out your last load day 3 hours prior to bedtime with ½ a brick of cream cheese and 15-30 macadamia nuts helps your system to kick into ketosis better.
Q-Is loose skin expected with hcg weight loss?
My Answer — The great thing about HCG is we release the fat quickly. But then your skin needs to play “catch up”. If I had it to do over again I would have taken the MSM in mega doses as soon as I started HCG.
My Answer — I came up with the Apple Cider Vinegar/ MSM shot for P2ers.Even though I have done the Apple Cider Vinegar/ MCT during P2. Since MCT is an oil I prefer a new P2er doesn’t do that one until there a reason for going that direction. Or once they know their body is settled into the HCG dose and adding the MCT oil won’t throw off your releases.
I don’t know why but it seems to me it is good to do your very first round as virgin on protocol as you possibly can. After the first round if you feel you want to try more “tricks” to see which ones work for you go ahead but journal so you know what works and what you should avoid.
Q-I currently take Perfect Food Super Green Powder
mixed in water, because I don’t eat enough veggies. I’ve never checked the caloric content, though I guess it should be low, and fat free. Would you recommend continuing with it?
My Answer — You would have to let me know the ingredients. If carbs or sugars aren’t added it should be ok. But again even if it doesn’t have those ingredients I wouldn’t add it at first . Just do protocol and then add and journal the result. If you see that by adding it you either stay steady with your releases or even better releases that you know you are good to go!
Q-Where did you purchase your hcg? (I plan on doing mine sublingually)
My Answer — I did injections but sub lingual also uses RX HCG so you can still purchase from where I did if you want.
I prefer Reliable Pharmacy(reasonable prices) is my favorite.
Click logo to order –
All Day Chemist (tried them because other hcgers mentioned them a lot)
and they are fine too. The way to pay with reliable was easier for me though.
On youtube an new HCGer asked –
Hi, Can you tell me what to do: I am doing sublingual and I am on vlcd day 3 and i am still very hungry. I am taking .5ml of the mixture 2xs per day. can you tell me what to do? thanks!
MY ANSWER –
I have only done injections but this is what I know-I still had hunger till I was further into my 1st week. Another thing is there is what I call “the sweet spot.”That is when you know you are at the right dose because the hunger is gone. More doesn’t always mean better either. If your dose is too high or too low that can cause hunger. I know, what the heck right? Mamaclok did a whole FAQ vlog on youtube, she is the best at Sub. I feature her video here on my website because I know she knows her stuff.
Here is the link to Karen’s (youtube channel name mamaclok) video –
When deciding to do this website my intent is to help HCGers with their journey. Covering everything from my experiences, where to get supplies that are affordable and other tricks and tips that I have discovered or have found out about. I want to share and help so others can experience success and the health benefits that I did.
From the beginning I choose injection but one of my original mentors that I discovered on http://www.youtube.com was mamaclok (Channel name).
She does sub-lingual and offers kits on ebay. She is a great person and resource for those who choose sub-lingual. She just put out a vlog that answers all the FAQ’s for sub-lingual.
