HCG Diet (Day 6)

I am so ready to be over this cold. But since my kids are still fighting it, and I'm a few days behind them, I think I'll be dealing with feeling cruddy for a bit to come.

Last night, I was STARVING when I went to bed. Interestingly, though, when I woke up at 1:00am, I wasn't hungry at all. Weird.

I've upped my caloric intake today, hoping to get a minimum of 500. I spoke with someone regarding their HCG program, and she says they don't see a significant difference at all between people who stick to the 500 calories, or those who go with their 750 calorie diet. So I'm not too worried if I go over. However, if you go under, I hear it can stall weight loss.

I did something stupid today-- I'm currently hacking up half a lung, so I grabbed a cough drop without thinking off my work desk today and popped it into my mouth. Uh, oh. High fructose corn syrup! (Note: Before beginning this diet, clear your desk and home of items you usually use and/or snack on so you will not go into autopilot mode and eat something you shouldn't.)

I am still very concerned that my LBMI is falling. Rapidly. I'm still gaining fat, and losing muscle. Not good.

Breakfast: 3/4 cup egg whites (90)
Lunch: 3 cups mixed salad greens, with balsamic vinegar (27), 1 medium navel orange (80)
Snack: 1 cup (8oz.) fat-free cottage cheese (160)
Dinner: Lemon chicken soup (110), 3 cups spinach (21), 10 extra large strawberries (90)

Total Calories: 578
