I lost 45 pounds overall and so far I have been able to keep it off. Does anyone know where I can buy Adipex online? I got ripped off from an overseas pharmacy who sent me a replacement product instead of the Adipex I ordered. Is there a product that works like Adipex that is legal to buy online?
Any advice would be appreciated. You need to go in and see your doctor. Adipex and phentermine are the most sought after and powerful weight loss drugs on the market.
Thanks for the advice. I had a feeling there was a reason Adipex was so hard to buy! I will look for an alternative diet pill solution to my Adipex problem. Adipex is still legal to buy but you have to get a presciption from your doctor.
They know if you are over weight how hard it is to loose, expecially when you eat right and exercise and still cant loose the weight. So just make an appointment with your doctor and explain to then how your doing everything you are suppose to but its still not working and request the adipex Thanks again for the advice.
So far on the first 2 binge days I gained grams a day not bad considering the kilos I ate yet my dad lost grams his first day! Then gained grams the next. My first day of phase 2 I lost grams extremely excited although today I only lost grams. But it wont bring me down. Its a bit like waiting for Christmas. As long as you stick to the plan you will succeed! Since writing this post my sister has lost 17kg days and her hubby lost 10kg.
One thing I did that really helped was to make a big batch of homemade chicken stock. It is OK as long as you leave it overnight in the fridge then scoop off the solidified fat. I then froze it in ice cube trays for convenience. It makes a big difference to so many things. I used it instead of oil to fry meat and make a sauce, it is also great in stir fries and in soups. Thanks Lyn, Wow congratulation to your sister and brother in law.
Stock would be a great addition to the diet. I know it outlines fluctuations and plateaus in the book but it still makes you ask why. I had 0 weight loss for 3 days then I lost only g then the next day, I was back to 0 loss again the next.
So I decided to have an apple day as outlined in the book. That was yesterday, finishing today, and happily I lost g. I have been wondering about flavourings added to herbal tea. It is real pear, is this, or the vanilla flavouring ok? As for my Dad, he is doing well. He has only had one day where he gained and one losing nothing at all. So we will see the affect that has had in the morning. Overall, on this 12th day I have lost 2. It does sound like your current weight loss is a bit slower than others but you sound determined which is the most important thing.
When I did it I joined a great support forum and there were lots of ups and downs. It was a very active forum with several hundred people and some, like me, lost a lot quickly and others took a bit longer. Everyone seemed pretty happy in the long run. I have no idea about the tea, it might not hurt to try a couple of days without it and see what happens.
I will post it on the site tomorrow. Hello again, well I have since found out what the problem was with my slow weight loss on the HCG. I got onto the forum you spoke about Lyn and I dealt with the coach Anna. She was terrific, I gave her my last 5 days diet including beverages, and the stevia product Natvia I was using was no good for the diet as it has Erythritol in it aswell. I was also suggested to stop eating tomatoes as this can be a cause of slowed weight loss. And I found out the vanilla flavoured teas were a no no and to stick to the plain jasmin, green, black and white tea if I could.
With these simple changes, I lost g the next day, and g the following day today. I need to prepare myself for another plateau though as it is bound to happen according to almost all the ladies on the forum.
I can hardly wait to jump on those scales again in the morning. You may not have another plateau, not everyone does, but you will at least be mentally prepared for it if you do. He will continue the diet but it will be slower going than it could be. I even ventured of my diet tonight which I was following for the last 3 days chicken and broccoli soup I had cauliflower instead. Oh and wow, today was a killer for sugar cravings, being Easter may have had something to do with it.
But I got through it no worries. Hi Lyn, An update on my hcg weight loss. When faced with those facts how can one, in good conscious, go back to that way of eating? Like you, the big shift for me came when I changed my main focus from weight loss to healthy eating. Wow, I have just come across these posts. I am just on day 1 of the HCG diet. I am doing it under the supervision of a doctor, and taking drops. I am in Ireland. The only thing is I got such a shock when I saw my weight yesterday that I dont feel like eating today and I am meant to be fat loading.
But I have taken loads of inspirations from your posts. Well done to you all. I hope I am as successful. Just focus on your end goal! Thanks for a great post Lyn. I came across your site today and I am glad I did. I have been thinking about doing this diet for quite sometime but I have been scared to try. I am a heavier woman and 80 lbs loss is my goal.
I guess my question to you is, how long can you do this diet for? Would I do it for a month then stop, then start again? Phase 1 goes for two days, then phase 2 the weight loss phase must be for a minimum of 13 days and a maximum of 45 days.
After 45 days must stop and wait 6 weeks before starting again. These should give you more information. Also, if you have struggled with weight loss for a while and are a bit scared about HCG you might like to read my posts about Jon Gabriel. His is a more gentle approach that focuses on nutrition and the reasons our bodies want to be the weight they are. I know a lot about him and include many of his principles in my daily life for health and weight maintenance. Sorry for the delay, I was sure that I had answered your comment but it appears not.
Some HCG protocols vary slightly but are similar enough for me to give you a good idea based on the one that I did. You will have two days of Phase 1 then a minimum of 13 days and a maximum of 45 days on Phase 2 the weight loss phase. This is followed by a three day transition phase into Phase 4 where you gradually reintroduce foods, monitoring which ones may cause problems for you. You then must wait 6 weeks before starting another round.
Everyone is different but I would say that to lose 80lbs you would need to do two to three rounds. I hope this helps. Firstly, you are pretty lucky to have lost 10 kilos in 3 weeks. Here I was naively thinking this happened to the majority of people who did the Protocol, but no.
The average weight loss seems to be about g a day, which is only But, a loss is a loss. Overall I lost 7. Just be warned, there can be a lot of obstacles, you must be strong. Many people would see it as an amazing success! You are only a few kilos from your goal so celebrate your success and move forward with the same determination it took you to complete the 45 days.
Were you in a support group or doing it by yourself? In the support group I was in a few people had problems with tomatoes causing a stall. My sister did it after me and lost 16 kg in 45 days so we should consider ourselves lucky.
I am sorry to hear about your Dad, I hope he will be OK, it is awful as parents age and have health issues. A major stress can definitely disrupt a weight loss plan, it is something I am working on myself at the moment. He lost an amazing amount of weight and now teaches others how he did it. I have written a couple of posts about him. I live in Noosa and will be driving to Changing Habits this morning to pick up my drops.
I am so excited, I hardly slept last night. I will not break the strict diet and will lose weight each day. I just know it!!! I will find it hard to not have Kefir each day, otherwise it sounds amazing. I have not done it, what I can say for sure is. Attitude and positive frame of mind are a powerful force.
So keep watching as I post my progress. My goal is 15kg in my first round. I will do phase 2 for 43 days. After the first round of the protocol, I will take the recommended break of I think 3 weeks and go again. I expect to do this 5 or 6 times in total. So beware to the staff that will have me waiting at the front door at 9am this morning, I have many questions and feel very excited.
I hope to inspire men and women with a lot of weight to lose and bring encouragement. I devised them when I was doing it. When I did it there were about members but I just checked in the other day and there are around Anna, the coach is fantastic too. Make sure you ask about the slim noodles. You can get them at the grocery store in the healthy food section. All the best and keep us posted on your progress.
Ohh thanks, I found the girls at the counter very helpful with my questions and raced off to the car to take my drops. Day 1 done and feeling empowered. Is there a link you could send me for Cindys support group please. The drops seem to make me very thirsty, makes it so easy to drink a lot of water.
I am so happy! Here you are Krissy, where it says comment wall, write your questions in there anything you like or checkout the blogs up the top. Here is a link to the page where you can get it. If you got the drops I think you will find that the forum is included so get in contact with them to find out how to log in. Hey Krissy, what an awesome attitude you have. It will help you a long way. And read read read, there is so much information in the blogs and just on the wall. Reading up on it might save her repeating herself and others as you often see the same questions asked over and over from new people.
Not that anyone minds replying, they love it! Ada and Sharon on there are mad for it! Terrific support anyway, let me tell you, many people have fallen off the wagon but it pays to get straight back on as they all do. Good luck to you! That link takes me o an invitation only login.
Any ideas on how I get invited. Thanks again, you are very kind. Have a wonderful evening. Oh umm, well I have to think back. I bought the drops on line and received emails from changing habits which I guess had a link in there with the invitation.
You must be able to join if you have the drops. You might have to call them tomorrow. I just started my first of 21 days of vlcd! I gained 5 lbs on the loading time; and now will have about 12 lbs to lose.
I always lose weight really slowly.. Anyways, thanks for the inspiration! Today is day 2 of phase 2. Only 2 loading days and 1 day on calories as it is now 6am. Overall how do I feel so far. I think this gently pushes me along to show them, this protocol is different. My current weight today is So its never to late. I feel your excitement like its me doing the Protocol.
They will be so excited for you as I am. What I loved about it was getting up every morning to jump on the scales. And when your clothes start to fit better, well… you just have to feel that sensation and do your happy dance.
Good on you Krissy! Karen is right, what is important is that you know what is right for you. Two of my favorite sayings are:. Starting tomorrow with about 15kgs to lose total. Excited and nervous because I know the hard work that lies ahead but also the many rewards.
Any idea if ill get this weight off on a 43 day program? Eat very little but always just a little overweight. Recently put on 10kgs following back surgery. Need to lose it ASAP to protect my back from re-herniating and of course to feel healthy again.
I hope that the contributions from other readers is of benefit to you and that you will also post your successes and challenges for the benefit of others that come after you. I lost 10kg in 27 days and my sister lost 15 kg in 45 days so it is do able but you will need to stick to the protocol diligently. It was incredible for me. Hi and thankyou for your reply. Did the 10kg and 15kgs you and your sister lost get you to your goal weights? If not, how close were you? Also, I started today on the drops and loading and felt nauseous right from the 1st dose and all throughout the day.
Did you or anyone else have this problem? Meaning day 1 of phase 2. I have stuck to it to the exact everything. I must admit I have been surrounded by many temptations in social situations. You really need to be disciplined. I feel wonderful and am sleeping better than ever. You are right, you must be strong. Your aim is to repair it so it can work better for you as it already has started to. I was a bit worried that it would be like that the whole way through!
I felt much less nausea today day 2 of loading than yesterday so ok guessing my body is just adjusting to the drops. How much are you aiming to lose in total? However, most allergies are environmental. Most of what you hear from these new designer companies is not true and is all marketing. They chose it over all the rest, from cheapest to most expensive.. Because they are so picky, I had to try them all..
I am very pleased with the results.. It has improved their coats to a gorgeous shine, and smooth skin with no dander.. A big improvement over their previous puppy food, with results within days.. It is a brand I truly trust.. I rescued a German Shepherd who had epilepsy, constant intestinal issues, bad gas, skin infections. He had been raised on Science Diet. I kept asking my vet — is engineered corn really what my dog is supposed to be eating?
After 6 months of dealing with repeated antibiotics for diarrhea and horrible gas, I ignored my vet and slowly switched to Taste of the Wild. Every dog is different — I think mine had corn allergies. He became more alert, no more diarrhea, less seizures, less skin infections. I also switched vets. Vets recommend this food because Science Diet sponsors these vets and pays for their schooling. How do you know vets are paid to endorse this product?
Or are you just speculating and perpetuating rumors? Its no different then your family doctor getting free samples from drug companies. Your doctor gives those out for patients to try. Sure the vet may get SD product at a reduced price to sell but that is in every business. They do not pay for any vets schooling.
They may have Vet school scholarships available, but that is a far cry from buying them off. Hills may not pay for individuals schooling but they sponsor and pay for tons of veterinary programs and do give vets incentives for pushing their products in their practices. Its not a speculation, look it up. Plus, having a vet tell you that fact to your face makes you believe it as well.
This is not true. Science Diet authors research papers and chapters in text books based on actual nutritional research. They study the research from this and many other companies. You should really not spread such rumors unless you know the facts. My almost 17 year old lab mix dog has been on Science Diet for most of her life. Very healthy still and I think good food and good care has kept her in our lives for all these years.
I read the Dr. Fox column, and he seems to be against Science Diet, so I was trying to do a little research. Hard to know the best thing in the dog world!
