We’re now nearing the two week point of the 2018 HCG Weight Loss Challenge and a bit of frustration is setting in. It’s to be expected. Any legitimate diet plan that requires a reduction in calories from the norm, will temporarily result in a bit of hunger and likely some frustration. This is when you need the support of the Challenge group the most.
I received and email yesterday that I thought I should share with the group so I pasted verbatim below…
I can honestly say I am incredibly frustrated! I really thought I was going to get some real help with meal planning, instead I feel like I’m getting nothing but excuses. Why would you have not planned all of this out BEFORE you began this challenge?? ~Sent from my iPhone
While it’s entirely OK for Sally to feel frustrated, I have to say that she’s entirely wrong. I’ve been working with HCG weight loss since 2009. Everyone is going to lose weight on the low-calorie phase of the HCG 2.0 protocol. Believe it or not, losing the weight is the easy part. The hard part is keeping it off because keeping it off requires real lifestyle change. That’s hard, but that’s exactly what I’m trying to prepare you for.
Giving you a formula, rather than a precise menu, for a successful week of meal planning may not be the easy thing, but it has much more value to you in the long run. The truth is, more than half of you will be right back here a year from now trying to lose the same 25 pounds that you’re shedding right now. It’s an unfortunate truth, but it doesn’t have to be.
Perpetual Dieters Vs. Permanent Losers
In my 8 years of experience with HCG weight loss, I’ve learned that there are exactly two types of dieters. There are the perpetual dieters Vs. the permanent losers. Hopefully, if all goes well, the perpetual dieters will graduate to become permanent losers, but not always. The goal of this challenge is to create permanent losers. But to become one, you have to put in the work and you have to help yourself.
As a chiropractor, I tell my pain management patients all the time that only YOU can feel your pain and only YOU can take the steps to remedy it. The same is true for maintaining a healthy weight. Nobody can do it for you.
Finally, Sally isn’t the only one that’s frustrated. Kylene was on the phone with someone yesterday (she wasn’t even an IOW customer) for 2.5 hours. She listened, she answered, she set up custom macros, only to find out that the woman on the other end “liked wine too much.” Thanks for you time, she said, but I don’t think this is right for me. Really?
Help Me Help You
Let’s stop frustrating each other. Let’s work together. I want to help you and you want to succeed. This relationship has potential so let’s take it to the next level.
That being said, give me some feedback. Are you frustrated? Are you happy with your results thus far? Maybe you’re thrilled with your results this far? Let me know.
Leave a comment or question in the comments section at the bottom. You’re over a week into the low calorie phase of HCG 2.0 and you’re probably finding out what is working for you and what isn’t. Share with the group.
If you had episodes of hunger, what did you to do remedy it? Have you found a recipe or a food item that you keep going back to? What have you tried for the first time that you never thought you’d like? Share.
In fact, share YOUR meal plan for the day. Or a recipe. I’ll post it tomorrow to keep the perpetual dieters happy.
If You’re New to HCG Weight Loss
If you’re new to my blog, the original HCG diet was first developed and published way back in 1954 by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in his manuscript called Pounds and Inches Away – A new approach to obesity. Over the years it’s helped millions lose 20-30 pounds in 30-40 days. It works, but is there a better way?
I published my book, HCG 2.0 – Don’t Starve, Eat Smart and Lose; A modern adaptation of the traditional HCG diet back in 2013. To my astonishment, it’s become the industry standard for HCG weight loss. Why? Because it addresses all the bizarre inconsistencies of the traditional HCG diet.
For example, the original HCG diet allows only 500 calories for each dieter. If you’re a former NFL offensive guard – 500 calories. If you’re a former cheerleader – 500 calories. That’s insane. That’s why HCG 2.0 uses a BMR calculation to determine the amount of calories you’re allowed to consume on your very own, individualized HCG 2.0 diet plan. It’s smart weight loss.
To complete your BMR calculation and find out how many calories you’re allowed on your HCG 2.0 protocol, complete the BMR calculation on my homepage.
